    How's the bass on the clear compared to the hd 800 S?

    I just realised the balanced cable that comes with the Clears is terminated in "mono" connectors. Does that mean the cable itself just single-ended, terminated with a 4-pin XLR?

    Not possible unless the factory cable is modified.

    I guess the capsules are getting the + and - and not the ground?

    In headphones it’s 2 conductor balanced. There isn’t a 3rd conductor

    this maybe be helpful

    i am interesting for buying either the Clear or the HD800S so i kept searching for 2 days from different sources both from youtube and the rest of the internet and i summarized what are the common opinions toward to them
    go = good
    ex = excellent
    h = highs
    b = balanced or neutral
    d = drive
    recc = recessed

    the 6k and 5.6k is just the price in AED at my local store

    I just returned my 64audio U18t since i auditioned the Clear same day i made the purchase. But man, all i needed was 1 day to go back and return the IEM. Clear's sound was so addictive. My ears lean towards laid back cans more so i preferred it over Utopia and Audeze LCD4.

    Only compared to headphones like the utopia and lcd4 and maybe the elear can you call the clear laid back. Because the clear ain't laid back, they're quite dynamic.

    No IEM on earth would match with Clear.

    I would have more auditions if our dealer had more options. So yeah, they are dynamic no question. If you compare it to Utopia, it is more laid back than Utopia (not everything else).

    Actually I find the UE 11pro very similar to the Clear.

    Finally got to A/B the Clear today against my HD 800S. I was very impressed by the clear i have to say. My local store will hopefully have them in stock in May. Much more bass and oomph. Soundstage was very impressive as well. Not as comfortable as the 800S.

    Woop, Woop!

    Been toying around with the Schiit reminds me of some of my psych case studies) Lyr 3 and tube rolling. The Clear/Schiit/Sylvania Bas Boy ‘52, is quite impressive. Much bigger headstage than I used too with the Clear, not Abyss level, but great for the Clear. Plus great control on the bass, while the Focals don’t need a lot of power to sound good, I think the bass needs the control offered by a powerful amp.
