More TGXEar content.. and contentment
Until recently I have preferred the Tantalus to the Serratus. But…. My Serratus was a prototype, I guess on of the first ones… it was in 3.5mm, had a different shell and cable. I now have the production version and it is a marvel. The bass is insane. So deep but resolved as well. The soundstage has great depth and once again, I’m shocked at how an earbud could create such an illusion of space and stage. I think based on the clean sound and the fullness that this clean extended bass brings, I can say that it has supplanted the Tantalus as my favourite for most genres.
The Tantalus does have a slightly more natural timbre for solo instruments or small groups like a lot of my baroque music or perhaps some quieter piano pieces or even some female vocal/solo guitar. In those cases I might go with the Tantalus but for my ambient type music or classical crossover music with extended bass and more layered instrumentation, the Serratus is amazing. The production version seems to have all the clean separation of the prototype but with a fuller midrange tone and an even better bass response. I think the fuller, more natural timbre, actually, is everywhere which is why the bass is so improved.
I have this playing right now and it’s sounding great.. Thanks @tgx78
More love for @tgx78! Yay!
