    If you have ever heard a singer utter the “s” sound and it comes across very high pitched and uncomfortable... that’s sibilance.

    Good information, thanks.

    It’s the the harsh S sound. It’s almost like a hiss sound.

    Ok.Maybe thats what im hearing on some tracks.Or it might be poor recordings/over compressed ( due to the loudness war).

    One track that i hear some noise on is Angel by sarah mclachlan.But on the "city of angels"soundtrack,i dont hear it on this same track.

    I think you need to get out more.

    Actually it looks very nice :)

    So I listened to Sarah McLachlan’s Angel and didn’t hear any noise or sibilance. Sounded great on the FH7. I don’t have a copy of City of Angels, I just have one track from it so I couldn’t compare but really no noise on the one from surfacing.

    Thanks, tried the bass filters and bass tips and they give the most bass of all. Tried comply ones I had, but did not like the lack of treble with those on. The included Spinfit tips along with red bass filters seem like a good balance.

    Do you recommend any specific tips that I should buy?

    I had originally purchased these to use with my Westone but I recently sold that IEM so I figured I'd give them a try with the FH7. I get a better seal than with my spinfits and I really like the fit but they do (to my ear) tame the highs slightly. I think the trade-off is fine but particularly useful if I were out and about and I needed better isolation etc.

    My personal favorite is the JVC Spiral Dot. I use M size with the FH5, and MS with anything deeper. You have to fiddle a bit to get a good seal, but once you do it has the best balance it deep sub bass, wide stage and sparkly treble of all the tips I’ve tried. @DekoniAudio Bulletz are also excellent, better than Comply IMO.

    I also got a pair of these but preferred the Spiral Dot with the FH5 at least. From what I hear the FH7 needs the highs tamed, so that’s maybe a good thing? (Unless you like your extended/brighter treble?)

    Whats the recording and year?
  14. Dts Bard

    The recording is Norah Jones “ Cold Cold Heart” from 2002. It’s ripped
    From CD to FLAC. But honestly I think it’s me. I can hear it in my other headphones which I didn’t before.

    The FH7 are quite bright in the treble and can be unforgiving depending on the music you are listening to and that is not just you. I have it too and have spent a lot of time trying out the different filters and the LC-2.5D upgrade cable. Funny enough, I find the open 'High Boost' (green) filters the smoothest option with the stock cable. With the upgrade cable I ended up with the 'Bass Boost (red) filters as the best solution, mainly because I enjoyed the extra warmth. Even then the treble always keeps a hint of brightness and some people will be more sensitive to that than others.
