Earbuds Round-Up

    Not sure if it's bad for the earbud, but it's probably pretty bad for his hearing!

    After some more listening I can confirm it was just a placebo, and sure it is bad for him but he wouldn't listen.

    My 11.11 package has finally arrived.

    K's Titanium Ling, or formally named as "Bell-Ti" - the build quality is quite stunning.

    The titanium finishing isn't completely smooth and actually offer some friction, so it will not slip out of ears so easily - However, an IMPORTANT note is that the Bell-Ti is tuned with using foam (full or donut) in mind for the best sound. The leather case feel extermely well made too.

    Another of my early Christmas gift - the new Rose Masya 2 (left). The build quality has certainly improved when compared to the original Masya.

    Do the 32 and 120 ohm sound different? How is the SQ compared to black ling and Poseidon.

    I'm wondering if the mids are more neutral/refined than the black ling and if the low mids-upper bass is more beefy. I found the black ling to be a bit too recessed in that region.

    Also there was a dip at 3khz that really affected the detail retrieval and once it was removed via EQ the mids became more resolving and natural. Is this dip fixed in the bell-ti?

    Sorry It's a lot of questions but at the asking price these would need to be 'perfect' and not just really good :)

    They look amazing just wondering if the sound is top tier and improved over the Ling and Poseidon.

    I just started the burn-in process so everything I said here might or might not be 100% accurate a few days from now- that being said - (1) the first impression is that the high and low impedance version do sound quite similar. I'll say the high impedance version is ever so slightly more matured and refined while the low impedance version sounds just a tiny bit more energetic, but the difference is rather subtle. You might not have noticed it if not paying attention.(2) I think K's own assessment that the Bell-Ti is Poseidon's (as well as Black Ling's) upgrade is fair. Both version sound fantastic new out of the box and immediately I prefer both version over the old K's flagships. (3) The new Bell-Ti are probably the most neutral in tuning compared to the older K's flagship - but they are not completely neutral as they still has a warmish tone that is known to be K's house sound. However, they are very well balanced as far as the overall frequency distribution goes. Compared to the older K's, which mostly has a smoother upper range and slightly tilting to the mid~lower end, the Bell-Ti's treble can actually be said to be somewhat crisp and detailed.

    That's promising, sounds like the improvement I was hoping for.

    The OurArt Ti7 are in my ears right now and I could swear I'm listening to a full sized headphone they have such a full sound

    Mid centric yes. Not particularly dynamic sounding but it's a midrange done right. No overly forward vocals, not recessed either. Smooth but detailed. Musical enough but still has that dry-airy quality that you look for in a reference tuned headphone.

    As I said it's like the vintage high end headphone tuning, maybe not impressive in terms of extension or dynamics but the tonality is very realistic.

    Can you please confirm how the bass presence/extension is? I've been eyeing them forever but was hesitant because I have read so many reviews that it is bass light... Bass compared to vido or emx or Samsara? Thank you for any insight and clarity! :)

    Oops. You posted as I was posting... Thanks for the details. :)
