    Thanks! They also work a lot better than the 846 with the trn bt20s. Much less noticeable hiss.

    Cl2are power hungry and are far from sensitive like BA driver iems. Mine are black background w my AK sr15. Silent. My other iems that are BA all have some slight background hiss. But only in certain parts of songs. As well anbalanced connection on my hiby r6pro brings out even more hiss on BAs. Cl2 s are special. I've given up the pursuit of the fearless Roland, Noble Khan and can Solaris as the cl2 does more than any of them in a small package and w the current price from 50%to 200%cheaper than those mentioned. Enjoy. If you don't love them it's the fit and or tips
    Deep insertion is mandatory. Of they are sticking out of your ears they aren't deep enough. Need a vacuum seal and I think a copper cable like Alo copper litz is the way to go. Over ear guides also keep them deep and steady ensuring the vacuum seal
    I bought some $2 silicon tips from a KS iem on Ali Express which have a better fit than the 10 others I've tried includes comply and spinfit and spiral dots
    Frustrating finding right fit at first but now I'm set as I bought 20 pairs of them and are set for a long time

    Anyone of you , ever tried a pure silver cable ? No SPC ( Silver plated copper )

    I did it yesterday ( Fiio lc 4.4D ) .. and was surprised.

    Yes, you must burn them in, you haven't heard anything yet!

    I heard changes up to the 300 hour mark.
    This IEM just keeps getting better, and is very sensitive to ear tip and cable changes.

    Are these iems at all treble fatiguing?
  7. 518013
    No. Treble is not emphasized, it sounds very natural and smooth.

    Now, there’s a contentious question!

    The CL2 has been voiced for a perceived flat response. If you measure it, it appears to have a treble peak. So it depends on whether you listen with your ears or your eyes...

    Yes to my ears they need some EQ to shine . But taste is different
  10. 518013
    How's your new cable?
  11. cr3ativ3
    its great , well build , comfy . soundwise to be honest , i still prefer CL2 with EQ this "peak" around 2,4-4,2K is to much for my music genres without EQ.
    still waiting for the spirals in M size. will check out with them again

    i tried Fiio LC4.4D pure silver with them too. it doenst make them brighter. pure silver makes the sound "cleaner" with the same EQ setting i use with the pure copper one , they sound also very good with the pure silver

    Makes me want to try a pure silver cable now. Maybe I can get my hands on one from one of my friends.
    The EQ thing might be a player or personal taste thing, with the WM1A the sound is smooth and just right to my ears. Let's see if anything changes for you after you get the new eartips.
    Fingers crossed.

    The SPC cables makes them indeed brighter .. i dunno why .

    yeah try one if you can :) i like both pairings.
    maybe im just used to another "stock" tuning .. i dunno. all my other iems dont have this freq area so pronounced. could be a reason why this sounds "wrong" or "to much" to me . -2 or 3 DB that "hill" down and they sound way better to my ears :)
    i tried different sources...

    Plated cables are the worst cables. I have never liked them with any speaker system, they color the sound too much.
    Pure copper or pure silver are always better ,at least in my experience.
