That's what we do, isn't it? haha



I am dying to have that sweet planar goodness, though admittedly I have only tasted the mid-tier planar's, but as much as I love those, I can't see hearing any better (maybe 1% better???). Every time I listen or audition a new set of full headphones, I ALWAYS come back to that sound I can only get from my planars. Though, I DO sometimes love to listen to my HD700's too. Orchestral music just doesn't get much better than on those with proper amping.

Anyhow, like you, I am also not willing to throw a ton of money for the convenience of mobility with same sound signature, so I decided to give the Tin Hifi P1 a shot. I found that I can get them from amazon, and I have a Kohls near me, so I can just run them over there to return them, if I can't find a way to like them. Though, from what I have read thus far (which seems polarizing), some have described them as the signature I am looking for, or at least that I can EQ them pretty easily (which I don't really mind too much I suppose).

Speaking of EQing, I have found (for me) a hot spot in the T800s. It is right around 3.5 to 4k. I have spent a fair bit of time doing some with UAPP and the 10 band (I didn't want to screw with my PEQ on that app because I have that set JUST right for another pair, and you can't save presets on PEQ). I will try and get a screen shot and put it up here, and see what ya'll think (while I wait for 50 days for my filtered tips).. :)

Think the P1's ultimately a fitting issue, if you get a good comfortable seal, combined with some mooassive amping, you should find enough depth to the sound. Even holding them in tight with deap tripple flange tips I got only an intermittent seal so sold mine on.

The Obravo Cupids Hybrid Planar a good alternative I'm told, not much more than the P1 with the cheapest bundle, especially if your buying from Amazon anyway

That is good to know. I don't think I will have an issue with amping, though most of my equipment is portable. Let's hope that I have the ears these were meant to fit then.. heh

Yeah, I ran across that name "Cupids" as I was checking into the P1s. Think I'll wait and see what the P1 is all about. The T800 are really that good, and I should just be happy with them. If the P1 DO suck, then I will just return them, stick with the T800 and wait until I see something that is confirmed to be the sound I am looking for.

DT200
- 2 knowles BA
- $149 USD

Not sure why it is not listed on their AE store, but it is selling in other online platforms. Though it is pricey for just a 2BA set, so best wait for more reviews first.

agree that it seems a bit too pricey for only 2 BA.

You can get the Thieaudio Voyager 3 for 159 usd and it is 3 BA ( not that driver count is the most important aspect but it still feels a bit bad because even the T800 have 8 BA at 300 usd)

Look forward to your Voyager review!

Ya maybe we are all so spoilt by the CHIFI multi BA/hybrid prices (eg **** at a ridiculous $16 USD). But just 3 years back, we would be talking minimum around $150 - 200 USD for a triple driver western set, before CHIFI flooded the market. Yep, tuning is of more importance than driver count and Audiosense does have a generally good track record so far, and good service to boot. But I think at this price point, it's a bit too risky for a blind buy, I'll personally wait for some reviews first.

Agreed, and yeah I am still waiting for them (DD-audio store) to even get the stock in as the manufacturing is delayed....so dont know when I will get it.....

Is there no early adopters sale for the DT200 as there was for the AQ3?

I've read somewhere that the DT200 was designed for eastern ears.

Okay that's completely new... Hahaha eastern ears for the fit? Or audio wise.?

Audio wise. Its tuning.

And for "eastern ears" I meant Japanese and Asian markets, I'm sorry.

I'm afraid I can't remember where I had read that.
