Earbuds Round-Up

  1. chinmie
    It's hiding to take a break, and let the other buds a play time chance :k701smile:

    what about the 150C to the MK2?

    Both are different in sound i would be happy with either

    Frequency Response Graph is good for preliminary to know its sound tendency, but it is not identical to real-life individual.
    First, a source is effect to SQ. Changing a source, FR graph will alter. Otherwise nobody seek for better sources.
    Second, the fitting on pseudo-ears measurement device is not the same as individual ears (both external and internal), except custom IEMs which go deep until the second-turn of the ear canal. In case of earbuds, any air-leak affects to overall SQ.
    Third, the sensitivity of measurement (so called 'mic' specs). Any earphones that got 'Hires-Audio' logo cause they use high specs of 'mic' to get something beyond 20kHz.

    anyone got their hand on the simphonio dragon 2+ yet? any reviews? I'm bored with my buds, looking for some new toys

    Not yet

    did you order one? how about the old one, is it still any good?

    You’re definitely right, I used the measurements as a rough estimate to find areas to ‘target’ with a wide quality on Equalizer APO.

    I changed the following...

    200hz -0.3db Q=0.5
    2400khz -0.3db Q=4
    4600khz +0.6 Q=4
    7500khz +1.5db Q=3
    12500khz -0.3db Q=5

    this was done on my laptop is a rough estimate in taming and bumping certain region to balance the graph @ClieOS provided.

    It was pretty successful to my ears, the sound is more natural now, similar to my shozy cygnus without the mid bass bloat and with better extension and better clarity. I trust shozy’s tuning to be fairy natural and used that and my masya to compare against the bs1 on my laptop to prove to myself this odd tonality wasn’t imagined... It wasn’t. But now it’s just nice to my ears as I wanted it to be.

    Honestly I’m content with this as that annoying glare is completely gone.

    absolutely new driver, not titanium, like old ones. Another sound should be, although I have not heard yet..

    yeah that's what I'm curious about, although I hate that earbud shell. a $300 earbud should use a better earbud shell, and not look like a $15 earbud. IMHO.

    Yuin PK shell is awesome for comfort though, at least to me. Love that shell lol!
  11. zeta555
    yeah, it's pretty comfortable. but pk1 was released in what? 2005/2006? more than a decade. I'm sure they can come up with something better. especially for high end buds. just like moondrop line and new k's buds.

    True, but there’s been weight/fit complaints about those buds. Why change something that’s not broken?

    If the pk shell had a flaw I’d understand but currently it’s still one of the most comfortable and convenient designs. Literally the only downside is it cannot fit 15.6 drivers.

    other downside, it looks cheap.

    now this is better. I saw this one in the fb group. it's silver right? or is it only silver paint?
