Thanks for the review and opinions. What were your thoughts on the silver & normal filters?
Your review points to poor bass performance and wishing you had more air and less mid-bass/lower-mids, but you picked the filter which has the least upper-mids and treble emphasis and more bass emphasis (which can muddy the waters a little bit) so curious if the other filters made it better or did they improve some things and but make others worse than with the gold ones.
I found the gold ones too bassy for my liking and would occasionally muddy up everything. If i were to had reviewed that one, I'd probably rate it lower than I had reviewed with the normal filter.
I think I gave the DMG the best shot I could by reviewing it with the filter that I liked the most; just like you, if I were to review the normal filter, I'd probably rate it lower than if I had reviewed with the normal filter. Well, probably not. The differences are really tiny and filters don't affect technical ability anyways.
Appreciate all the hard and extensive work you`ve put in in all these measurements. Those graphs are a great tool and point of reference. Question i have is how does recently tested GT3 SuberBass compares to other bassy IEMs. Its supposed to have a thin diaphragm ( although of an unknown diameter and material ). Just wonder how competent that IEM is. If you could just point out its overall sound signature. Thanks.
The signature of the GT3 Superbass is a downsloping one where bass > mids > treble, though only slightly. Don't think it's very impressive myself.
