What Variations is "missing" in order to play those music genres really well is the mid and upper bass and lower mids. I'm not knocking them. I love Variations but I recognize that they don't excel at every genre because of the way they are tuned. They also don't hide the warts of poor recordings.All good points and do agree it’s a ho
Totally agree in my case I feel it’s better to maybe save towards a better iem. I love the moondrop variations with edm, trance, pop etc. if that’s all I listened too they be my endgame. Since I also enjoy classic rock I feel there a little something that is missing with the variations.
Don’t get me wrong the variations work well with rock they just don’t blow me away like they do with edm. Variations have really expanded my music taste due there the working so well with certain music and that’s a good thing. Still I need to determine if what I’m missing in classic rock is related to the iem or the recording of mostly music from the 60’s and 70’s. Chris you went from variations to the mest would love to hear your thoughts on that.
Anyways back to cables I’m finding the solid silver cable with my hearing doesn’t sound as good as the mixed material cables. Going listen a bit longer then switch to solid copper before going back to the mixed cable. The quality of the silver cable from XINHS still was a great value for the price only few bucks more than his standard silver with more cores seems a steal.
I’m at the point in my journey that I’m still trying find what my endgame will be. If a decent quality silver cable doesn’t sound good when and if I ever decide to try a higher price cable I at least have and ideal what material or mix of I enjoy most will be.
