Separate names with a comma.
I don't know whether the ES3 you reviewed is the same (sounding) version as mine.
Understood. I'll be adding more information in an edit for this very reason so check back later this evening perhaps (for the updated info).
Your information is just fine. It is KZ's inconsistency I am alluding to .
I use the laser bond glue as mentioned by Slater. It really comes in handy! I deposited a little of the glue elsewhere and dip the tip of a safety pin in it. I then use it to apply a tiny amount around the inside edge of the nozzle and the rim of the washer. Harden it with the UV light and done.
Absolutely; likewise. That's the additional information I'll be focusing on. In the meantime, hakuzen's work will serve as evidence. See the following post for more insight.
Also, looking at those graphs, notice how much the midrange is effected.
Just.....all over the place. I always say that small tweaks in the wrong areas can take things from pleasant to offensive without much effort.
Slater may be able to chime in on removing the foam that sits between the mesh screen and BA to open things up on your ES3. Just a thought....
Just on a curious note; did one have a mic and the other didn't? Just wondering.
I am just trying to listen to the music videos accompanying your review...many of them "are not available". Is Canada being blocked out?
I don't recall. You'll have to search tor hakuzen's original post for more detail.
Also, Otto, I will quote one of hakuzen's earlier posts in order to paint a clearer picture.
Setup for following Doc's review including youtube audio samples.
MacBook Air, audioquest jitterbug, audioquest dragonfly, early adopted KZ ES3.
Observation: Pretty good, but that soft however punchy and overall overwhelming bass is pounding against my eardrums.
A word on the jitterbug: it works in as it audibly lifts the sound off the floor.
Here is the list and their links:
Basia - Promises
Alphawezen - Into The Stars
Jose Gonzales - Heartbeats
Swingout Sister - Twilight World
Tiesto - Close To You
Delerium - After All
Massive Attack -Teardrop
Guitarra G (Afterlife Remix)
Dead Composers feat. Cathy Battistesta - Starlight
Jakatta - One Fine Day (Original Mix)
Dave Seaman - My Own Worst Enemy (Original Mix)
I usually try to go through the artist's "topic" pages, otherwise you get more random quality when seeking out a particular track from John Doe uploads. If these links are still blocked in Canada then you can search YouTube by artist and track but the sound quality may be different and as a result subsequent discussions may prove problematic since it's not the same exact file being discussed.
Don't have the ES3 - It's one of the few KZs I don't have.
If they did the foam like other IEMs (KZ ZS3, BlitzWolf ES1, etc), it should be as simple as gently lifting the nozzle mesh off with a sewing needle, and pulling the foam out with said needle (or tweezers). Then putting the nozzle screen back on.
The starlines are good, but I am finding for myself that the KZ Turbo / Whirlwind tips are even better. They have a larger bore, so they really work well. I also have some Tennmak Turbo / Whirlwinds on order, which are supposed to be more durable than the KZ ones. Actually for me, with these tips, I have a hard time imagining that you could want MORE bass. These go very deep and have a lot of slam. Very dynamic!
Sorry - I forgot to include your quote - see my reply to Otto Motor, but I like KZ Turbo / Whirlwinds with my ZS6's...
