Yeah, I was just listening through a portion of ENV's discography, which is Dubstep/EDM kind of bass-heavy stuff, and even with a graph like this:I do find it puzzling that they use the same DD for all of their IEM range. I guess that they have found one that does what they want. They must know very well how it reacts to crossovers and sound tubes. The DD driver likely isn't a high cost item anyway.
I like fast textured bass so I'm happy with that. Plus, it pairs well with BA woofers.
it doesn't sound too bad. It's still going to be a bit weird compared to more bass-heavy sets with a standard V-shaped tuning, since the mids are much more forward and the bass isn't so intense, but it's got enough grunt and oomph behind the bass for it to still be enjoyable to listen to. It's honestly a bit shocking to me that they manage to cope acceptably with a genre that they're so obviously not tuned for. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing how the GD5 performs with higher bass and treble gain. I just hope that the mids still maintain their comfortable warmth when I go to listen to youtube vids.
