    Burson Conductor 3 Performance & Conductor 3X Performance

    Conductor 3XP Review I was offered a chance to demo and review the Conductor 3X Performance DAC/ amp. A huge thank you to Burson for this opportunity. Even though my selection of gear to use with it is stretched a bit thin these days, I believe I was able to hear what this fine piece of Burson...

    Surpassing the Thunder for favorite?? How does the bass compare between the two?

    I'm down to two that I'd be content with if they were the only two... ISN EST50, and Aroma Thunder.

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN H50!

    Awesome review, and echoes my thoughts exactly. The sense of scale - between the size of the staging, to the richness (and lifelike feel) of the midrange - is what makes this one special. I think the EST50 is a notch above the EST112 for these reasons.

    The PENON official thread

    I've had that experience with the green core Penon tips too. They stack up remarkably against other brands' which are more regarded, and I use them on multiple IEM sets I have. Currently using Some SednaEarFit light short tips that I got in, and I think those are just a hair better.

    I have a long time to go as well! Estimate maybe approaching 100 hours on my Thunder set!

    Had the Oracle briefly, and my impression echoes yours on the Clairvoyance. Bass was ok, but mids sounded pretty thin with vocals lacking body. Treble was nicely extended, but soundstage was really small and closed in. Just didn't do anything for me at all.

    Aroma audio product impressions.

    Got a set of the Thunder about a week ago, and have been listening for my burn in. I'd say approaching 50 hours now, so probably about where it'll wind up. Did some early tip rolling, and put on my DDhifi cable w/ swappable plugs, and am thoroughly enjoying the sound. The immense sense of space...

    The PENON official thread

    I wouldn't consider the Timeless' stage narrow per se, or the imaging bad... To me, the soundstage is acceptable, and imaging is actually above average. I think of imaging as how an IEM digs in and is able to place instruments and sounds within a given space.... and in how detailed a manner it...

    The PENON official thread

    So I just did a quick comparison with both (Serial & Timeless)... keep in mind that the Serial only has a few hours on it so far, and I haven't even tried out my favorite cable, or found the most ideal tips yet. So what I immediately hear is quite a similar timber between the two, and very...

    I sure wish Penon sold the Radius Deep Mount tips... I'd order some along with it.

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN H50!

    Dammit! You've just spent some $$ for me I think.... I was an early owner of the H40, and lately it hasn't been getting used much at all due to other IEMs which have landed in the house, having significantly better technical abilities. But I think with your description of the EST50 I may need to...

    Softears - Discussion & Appreciation

    Yeah agreed... and apparently single driver planars are hard to get right too. The 7Hz gets things mostly right, just sense of space is a bit less than ideal. It's good enough thankfully that I can 100% enjoy it even when I've got the Turii right there at the same time.

    Softears - Discussion & Appreciation

    I seem to have an aversion to multi-driver IEMs lately... and a tendency toward geometric shaped single driver ones instead! :ksc75smile:
