I think you'll like the Monk Lite 120ohm just fine, it doesn't suffer from the same issue as the Zens where foams alter the sound drastically. I don't find the Monk Lite 120ohm's lacking in bass, I only meant they are brighter in comparison to other VE since most VE buds are decidedly warm. In fact, the brighter lean can help with that clarity you're looking for.
ok nice, i will buy it :D

Busted out my Yincrow X6s for the first time in a while since I got the Qudelix 5k a while ago and wanted to try them, and while these are certainly enjoyable especially with electronic music, I feel like the mids could be better. Some male vocals, for example, sound a bit weird and unnatural to my ears. Kinda like they're compressed and played back through a thin wall?

Any buds to recommend that don't sacrifice too much of the bass and the general easy listening characteristic of the X6 but offer clearer, more natural sounding mids?

Also, unrelated to what I asked, but god I hate the X6 cable lol. It's straight up my second least favorite cable of any thing ever, right after the Beyerdynamics DT770.

Try the EP05, the unique open back tuning make it sounds natural flat response full bandwidth with clear mids, if you comes from v-shaped buds then the EP05 considered sounds like n-shaped, but it not all highs/bass are intact, just like flat/neutral best soundings buds.
Search for other $16 sellers (the linked one got greedy) and hope on good lucky draw:

I feel the same.. Somehow X6 does not sync well with Qudelix 5K.. The mid become muddy and too V shape..

X6 sounded better with CXPro CX31993

Is that... a detachable cable on an earbud? Fuken SOLD!

Ah, didn't even consider it could be partially the Q5k's fault too. I'll have to compare against my desktop setup later today.

Parametric Equalizer...

The normal equalizer we know (usually named as Graphic EQ) are set with predefined bands (say 5 bands, 7, 10, and so on) and center frequencies. The chosen frequencies usually based on logarithmic scale jump in between bands... Then it also has predefined 'bandwidth' while applying gain or attenuation, creating peak or valley.

With PEQ, we could freely choose the center frequency and the bandwidth and contour (peak/valley, shelf, band-pass filter)
This is what RikudouGoku mention on his post above

Please can someone say a Yuin pk3 replacement?
3466582831_bf7c571f17_b.jpg


Unfortunately I don't trust any yuin pk3 made after 2015 or so. They are either fake, or the manufacturer is making them different, they don't sound as "wow, why does it sound that good" anymore. Im looking for a replacement. Got the nicehck EB2, good, but not as good. Any recommendations???

Pretty much from what I understand, white text pk's (the ones that are in that photo there) were stopped being made then someone bought all the equipment that was used and made worse ones in the same name. Theyre not really "fakes", just very poorly made ones which use grey text instead of white.

As for a replacement to the PK3, thats a bit of a funny one. Im sure someone in this thread will know, but I use as my daily driver right now the ShoonTH ESEP-01BLE that ise "foster" drivers and they sound wonderful. Hate the cable it uses though lol.

If you go a step up to the Yincrow RW-9, it offers cleaner and better transparent MID's with better hi-end details, while the sub-bass digs deeper with less overly done mid-bass. So, in a sense you get better transparency and life-like coherency that sounds more natural at the average normal volume. Plus, there's different color cable with buds to choose from, which in my opinion, is also a step up.

You can check out the link below...

Hope this helps...
