Sir, i know its not reasonable to ask it.........

Hi @rashedalamgir , they are very different, kind of comparing oranges to apples when comparing a hybrid like the BD005 Pro to a single DD like the E3000.

The E3000 has better timbre, and is darker with a more pronounced midbass bloat. Soundstage and imaging is better on the E3000, and E3000 has lesser treble/upper mids. E3000 as you know has a non detachable cable and also has poorer isolation and is much harder to drive. If you don't have an amp, best to avoid E3000.
BD005 Pro has better clarity, instrument separation and details, but has a poorer timbre. It is easier to drive too and has detachable cables.

Any comparison to be made between this or the Jade Audio EA3? Cheers!

@InvisibleInk The Jade Audio EA3 is much more V shaped, with more subbass extension and more treble extension. EA3 is more fatiguing and harsh in the treble with much more sibilance. In terms of technical performance the EA3 is better in soundstage and technicalities, but it has a more artificial timbre.

So the Kinera BD005 Pro is more laid back and chill whereas the EA3 is more in your face and the more technical set (but it can be fatiguing). Trebleheads will like EA3 more I suppose.

What about with the iBasso it100?
I'm looking for an elevated bassy kind of signature, without sacrificing details too much

Hi @DarkMagik , both are rather smooth and non fatiguing, but the IT00 has better timbre as per its single DD roots. IT00 has much more subbass quantity also. IT00 has quite bad driver flex though, which I don't find on the BD005 Pro. In terms of technical performance, they are very close (eg in clarity, details, instrument separation, imaging, soundstage). If u want more bass as per your first post, then I would suggest the IT00, it is very close to basshead levels, but the bass doesn't impinge upon the mids.

Thanks for the reply! These look beautiful, but I do love me some subbass, lol.

Have you tried non-stock tips, and did they change the sound? I'd love to try the Sedna short on them and see if it improves the transients....
