Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I think you are describing the active EQ that Apple is touting as a feature. It is supposed to continually adjust based on fit etc. You must have good hearing if you are noticing that. I haven't noticed it on mine.

    Looks like a nice fit. They remind of the KZs and also of a TWE from a kickstarter that someone got on here ? They had been seen on AliBaba before being pulled.

    Yes I noticed that too when running with them and with ANC I had these "fluctuations" (I'd called them "interferences" I think, like some shuffling sound). Very annoying.
    Anyway for running I think I'm going to stop wasting my time trying to do better than the X12s as I've come to the conclusion that it's just not possible ! I started out with the L2Ps today as they seemed to have less "thump" when walking than other IEMs I've used but that was probably due to a poor seal with the stock tips. With the Final E LL tips that give me a better seal it was ok at first and then became annoying. The wings were probably moving around a bit too and somehow I felt something was "off" with my stride/balance. I stopped and switched to the X12s and wow, night and day ! No more "balance" issues, great and rich sound, "in tune" with the environment. So yes I run in quiet environments alongside a rvier so I only really hear the noise of my strides.

    My bank tends to run limited deals with selected stores a few times a year when paying with their MasterCard. They are running the deal this week, starting tomorrow (Thursday) until Saturday, with 20 % off everything at their selected stores.

    One of the stores just received a pair of 75t's in stock today. Just reserved them for pickup tomorrow. Talk about luck!

    Accidentally bought the LP2s Sunday and paid full retail of 160. I have not received any email from them regarding shipping or anything. I will send them back as I don't wait to pay full price when you can generally get 40 bucks off.

    Could be, but It never ceases to amaze me how much tips change the sound of a TWS/IEM. The JVC's especially.

    I'm blessed with good hearing, think we've discussed that before. (SBC noise, crackling etc with the Senn' MTW :) )
    But I don't think it's the feature you're talking about.
    It's like the bud sits so deep/snug, the part where the mics for ANC and ambient sound is/are (are there multiple mics?) placed, touches the structure of the ear that's moving with movement/chewing etc. I hear this just by walking across the floor in my apartment.
    It really ruins the sound :frowning2:

    I have the mw07 on the way. To those who have experience with both the L2P and mw07 how would you describe the differences between the two? And especially, I am hopeful the mw07's bass is more controlled and balanced with the mids and highs than the L2P.

    What EQ setting are you using ? I pulled up TPA in Tidal (studio version) and with the HearID (or Soundcore Signature) it sounds great TBH, the bass is not overblown at all to my ears. You could always try the "reduced bass" setting to see if it helps.

    Now I want to recharge and listen to my wf1000x again. They get hardly ever any playtime. (Also no IPX rating, plus the case handles really poorly)

    Thanks for your reply.
    In one way good to hear that others experience the same "phenomenon", but not good to know this is an issue.
    For me this could be a dealbreaker.

    Edit: Could you try the APP's while chewing, moving your mouth (feel free to exaggerate the movements a little.) Do you hear the same fluctuations/shuffling of the sound as when you run?

    It is much more controlled. It is nice, deep and tight with little bleed or boom. If that's your primary concern, I think you will be very happy with the MW07. The L2P kind of reminds me of an MW07 on steroids. The L2P can be too much of a good thing sometimes but I really enjoy them for the gym. I probably wouldn't do any critical listening with them whereas the MW07 absolutely can be used that way.

    Yeah, I remember now. I never did hear that crackling. You have golden ears. Blessing and a curse probably.

    Thanks, that is good to hear! Pun intended :beerchug:

    That's a heck of a score! I'm sure I couldn't resist trying them for that price.

    I tried everyone of the Soundcore EQ settings as well as HearID and could not get over the large amount of bass. And sorry, but before you say try a non-Soundcore EQ, I am not a big fan of EQ. If I had to open up a separate, non Soundcore EQ and pull up a specific EQ for each one of my IEM's, buds and cans it would drive me to distraction, because I would find that way too much work just to enjoy the music. I would much rather just find a IEM, bud or can that matches my prefered listening sound signature.
