    Got my iSine 20 on last farther's day sale. I got the bundle version with Cipher V2 cable, which I hardly use. I do like the Cipher cable but only used it when traveling light. I primarily use a regular cable with iFi Black label DAC with my sources daily basis. This is my ultimate mobile combo with iSine 20. I have not been touching my Shure SE846 since.

    BTW: regarding the hooks. I only managed to break only one hook since I got the 20. I never removed it and using it daily basis. I email the tech support, they actually sent me the new complete hook set free of charge. I also purchased additional set from Audeze. I think, I will be all set with the hook for a long while.

    I'm EQ it manually with the Earstudio 100 bluetooth DAC, i'm not using the reference house sound of audeze. i'm EQ it too my own preferences :) because you can make them sound like anything you want. I'm boosting the low mid freq and bass freq expecially because their planar bass is just perfect

    Would you be kind enough to share your EQ settings on the ES100?

    Usually those copies from China are junk made by junk.

    Just got a pair of used isine 10s and a simple google didn't give me the best eq settings for em. Most are for i20s. I know this may habe been given tons already but can someone help provide the eq settings as there are a lot of pages to go back and search for them?

    I am particularly using a pioneer 300r dap if that helps. Thanks.

    Not sure how customizable the EQ is on your DAP but here is the recommended EQ to hit the Harman Target Curve:

    Parametric EQs
    Apply preamp of -6.8dB and build filters manually with these parameters.

    Filter 1: ON PK Fc 43 Hz Gain 6.2 dB Q 0.19
    Filter 2: ON PK Fc 436 Hz Gain 2.3 dB Q 1.03
    Filter 3: ON PK Fc 1400 Hz Gain -7.0 dB Q 1.53
    Filter 4: ON PK Fc 2133 Hz Gain 8.2 dB Q 0.86
    Filter 5: ON PK Fc 5152 Hz Gain 4.8 dB Q 1.86
    Filter 6: ON PK Fc 1020 Hz Gain -0.8 dB Q 3.03
    Filter 7: ON PK Fc 1414 Hz Gain 1.3 dB Q 1.75
    Filter 8: ON PK Fc 1508 Hz Gain -1.7 dB Q 5.18
    Filter 9: ON PK Fc 6451 Hz Gain 3.2 dB Q 4.95
    Filter 10: ON PK Fc 7640 Hz Gain -2.2 dB Q 1.77

    Thanks Braniac. Although my dap only has these. Looks like it's not as extensive as what you've given. IMG_20190125_145234.jpg

    That's going to be tricky. Not sure what type of coloration your DAP adds to sound, but try the following as your base and then modify to your liking:
    32: 6.0
    63: 6.0
    125: 5.0
    250: 4.0
    500: 3.5
    1k: 0.0
    2k: 6.0
    4K: 5.0
    8K: 0.0
    16K: 0.0
    32K: 0.0

    Speaking of EQ, for those who are using Equalizer APO with the Reveal plugin and want a little more upper extension and air without sacrfice the overall great tonallity, I recommend these settings for Graphic EQ:

    GraphicEQ: 32 -0.4; 64 -0.4; 125 -0.4; 250 -0.4; 500 -0.4; 1000 0.6; 2000 2.1; 4000 3.3; 8000 3.8; 16000 5.2

    Along with 100% wet Mix in the Reveal plugin panel and -8.6 dB on Preamp for tame the peak gain. Pure glory.

    Something like this:

    Great. I set up my dap and will test it a bit later. Thanks.

    I believe the ‘longer voice coil’ just means that the conductive track etched into the membrane extends further towards the edges, meaning it moves as a flat driver with less deforming and breakup. It doesn’t have greater travel as far as I know. I could be wrong but hopefully @KMann will correct me if necessary

    The longer trace gives us better granularity/control over how the force is distributed over the surface of the diaphragm. This in turn results in better control and resolution.

    I have 6 pairs of large ear hooks (official Audeze ones) if anyone wants to swap with Medium ones?

    How come you have so many?
