    But don't forget, once it is broken in, the CL2 is very sensitive and revealing; cables, tips, source, recordings, barometric pressure, all have a strong influence on sound...but when it comes together it really is magical...

    Yes .. cables and tips have a massive influence to the sound with them

    True, CL2 can change its sound quite a lot depending on source. When u got the synergy, it surpasses a lot of totl easily due to the planar tonality and the tonality sounds better than isine series to me. Isine is more like horn ish

    Selling my gently used cl2 w box and all accessories for $400 shipped in USA. PayPal extra or friends and family

    One thing CL2 doesn't seem to be affected by - output impedance. Worked beautifully with 10 Ohm Hiby R6:)

    Thanks a lot for these posts about UAPP. It's perfect for me. It supports both Google music and Tidal. Google music has better SQ BTW.
    Compressed files often sound better on Google than on Tidal. For entire 6 month I've been on Spotify, I couldn't find peace with any iem. Just couldn't bear what that OGG compression does to upper treble. Also Gogle music supports thumbs Up command from android watch(using Music boss app)
    Edit: to correct CL2 upper mid hump it's more than enough(and not only Cl2:))

    yes, i do not find any other player that can outclass UAPP with the tonebooster. The only paid app that worth buying!

    Would this pair well with the sp1000m dap? I never used EQ myself on that dap either. Would it a be solid pairing for classical, jazz, Acoustic and heavy metal / rock?
    If so does anyone have experience with this combo and how well does the EQ work?
  10. szore
    I owned the 1000m, this would pair very well. With this combo, assuming everything is broken in, it would sound superb, there would be no reason to EQ anything.
  11. Spie1904
    Really? I thought there was always the peak in the tuning of the RHA CL2 that would require EQ for the cymbals to sound correct? Like around 4-6khz
  12. szore
    That's the subject of debate. If you look at frequency charts, it shows a peak. But in actual listening, with a proper copper cable, and 200-300 hours on the CL2, there is no 'peak'. This is a highly contentious topic here that I have no wish in reigniting. I suggest reading through this forum to see the discussion of the fabled CL2 'peak'. It's been discussed to death.

    Add: Actually I am using a Plussound SPC that sounds great, you don't necessarily need a 'copper' cable; but pure copper, especially the better ones seem to have a better synergy in the sense they add a texture and tonality that compliments the CL2 well.

    the debate that will never end. CL2 sounds different with different source. Like literally, even with samsung and apple dongle sounds different to each other

    To my ears , it depends on cable and tips !

    Stock tips and cable .. let me Eq down 2,9-4K range down by 3db.

    I found out the final type e tips helped a lot .
    At the moment I use tripowin c8 cable and final type e . And no eq :)

    If you hadn’t seen the frequency response chart, you wouldn’t know the peak was there...

    It’s notable that the people who don’t like the CL2 don’t have much history with full range speakers. The people who love them tend to come from a hifi speaker background rather than just a headfi background.

    Make of that what you will.
