    Comment by 'Danz03' in item 'Meze Audio Empyrean'

    Never in a million years would I have imagined myself burning this much money on a pair of headphones, and interestingly, from Romania; which isn’t particularly famous for its technological innovations or audio products. I was originally going the demo MrSpeakers Ether 2, the staff recommended I...

    Audeze LCD-2 Closed

    Never liked any closed headphones, including all the Audeze ones, (EL-8 closed being the worst, worse than Apple’s earbuds in my opinion), the treble always sounds distorted and weird, even though I love the extended bass frequencies. Hope these will change my mind about closed HPs. :-S

    Audeze LCD-MX4

    You are right, my iSine 20 didn't sound right using the 3.5mm jack, but with careful EQing with the Audeze app, they sound great, especially the bass, which is deep and lower than most of my other headphones or IEMs. Now with my iPhone X, I don't have much choice but to use the lightning...

    Shure SE846 vs Noble Kaiser Encore?

    If you are sensitive to sharp treble, why do you even have a pair of HD800??? Comparing to the HD800, the Encore are dull sounding!   To me, the SE846 are a little bit bass heavy with the white filter, with the blue filter (and olive tips), they sound more balanced to my ears. I used to think...

    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    I'm not so sure, just got a pair of iSine 20 today, out of the box and using my AK240 as source didn't impress me at all, the low bass frequencies were lacking compare to my LCD-X. With the Lightning cable and my iPhone 6 (the Audeze app isn't very stable, doesn't always work properly, but when...

    Noble Audio - Introducing KAISER ENCORE and SAGE

    Hmmm, lucky I haven't bought the Katana yet, will demo them and see which ones are better for me. ;-)

    Yes, musicians always eq their IEMs for stage performances, as they all have different preferences, i.e., a singer would want to hear the high mids more so than the bass, whereas a bass player would certainly wants to hear the bass more (I personally would rather keep everything flat but raise...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I haven't heard any AT IEMs apart from the E70 which I first heard about from this thread and loved them right away. The other AT IEMs I've heard recently are the brand new so called 'Flagship' LS 400 which I mentioned in an earlier post, and they sounded absolutely terrible, not unlike the Pro...

    I don't think so, even if they could, why would I waste more money to correct a crappy IEM? Would be cheaper to downgrade it to Pro 30 for much better sound quality.

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    Been a big Westone fan since I moved from Shure E530PTH to UM2 when it first came out, then UM3x, UM3xRC, W3, W4, W4r, UM Pro 30 and W60, so I really wanted to like the Pro 50 but couldn't. I have been comparing the ATH-E70 (with comply tips supplied) against my K10U (using the AK240...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I literally just demoed the W80 and the Pro 50 again against my K10U. I was using the balanced out with my AK240 (using FLAC files) for the K10U so it may not be 100% fair as they only had unbalanced cables with the Westones. Comparing to my K10U, the W80 sound signature is quite similar...

    No, I wasn't even aware that W80 was out. Off to Tokyo on wednesday, so will try them out when I'm there, and the agh-e70. But honestly, so far with IEMs, I have so many and have tried out so many, I think my old K10U is still my fav, otherwise, I'd use my Pro 30 for the gym or when I'm...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Basically, I was just running the S1 with my iPhone with Westone UM pro 30, and the audio sounded very distorted and degraded. I haven't plugged in any headphones or IEM through the headphone out ever again since, it was just unbearablely disturbing to listen to. I do not believe it can output...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    It's been nearly a week now, definitely no emails from kickstarter or Smyth, just the receipt from PayPal, probably will have to write to them. I did get the email telling me about the pre-order though.

    I paid the $700 deposit and got a receipt from PayPal, but not heard anything from Smyth-Research. Anyone had different experience to mine?

    Westone W60 Impressions Thread

    I wasn't even aware there's a W80, is it any good? worth the cost?   Quote:

    Westone W60 Impressions Thread

    I'm not so sure I'd agree with that, the warmth of the W60 takes away a lot of the harshness and distortions in music, which I think is great for acoustic or ambient music, but it might take away the aggressiveness in rock and metal, it's best to demo them first before purchasing.   Quote:
