Head Fi gets the news first! Better start budgeting accordingly if you want to get something.
Should’ve waited to order my Falcons.., I guess I’ll have to buy a second set for my wife.
Check the fine print. You did fine, already buying the Falcons.
Thanks..i saw this on my phone so the fine print is illegible. I figured 20% off the Falcons is tantamount to giving them away. I’ll probably still order a second set for my wife.
No shame, I'm even ordering two sets internally for my lady and I!
Quite excited! I just listed my oBravo Cupids for sale and ordered the M3s he he he he
Just found your post, sorry for the delayed response. I auditioned them with a pretty eclectic collection: Bernie Worrell Bass, Diana Krall jazz, Chicago & EWF for horns, Stevie Ray Vaughn for guitar, & Axiom Funk for Drums....
I just ordered them and am giddy with excitement. But I'm reading all the comments on the Savant IIs and wondering if I'm buying and upgrade, a side grade or entirely different sound. Not quitenready to outlay for Kahns....
Thanks. I was asking as I listen to a lot of baroque music and modern classical/crossover stuff and am always interested to hear what others' impressions are based on. I have the EE Legend X which I would assume would be great for rock but the DD really adds to music by people like Olafur Arnalds and Max Richter.. I ended up with the Massdrop K10 instead of the M3 and the K10s are fantastic in the midrange for the baroque stuff. So crystal clear with nice treble extension and a weighty enough bass and great tonality on cellos and the theorbo.
I am really interested in the Tux5 and Khan as well now as I've never heard Noble's hybrids and I really like Noble's tuning in the 5 models I've owned over the years.
Since you're such a fan of Baroque, if you don't already know him, Check out Jacques Lossier. Bach and other Baroque composers in a jazz but respectful style. I have a few of his albums live them all and particularly "Baroque Favorites"
for those planing on getting a falcon and plan on changing the tips i recommend getting the radius deep mount tips. They fit well, the case closes without problems for charging. I tried using my goto tips the AZLA sedaearfits on them but their just too long granted the case closes but they wont charge unless you have earphones pushed down. the deep mounts feel similar to the AZLA sedaearfits which was also nice
Thanks! Very interesting take. The Bach stuff is very innovative. I’ll definitely check out more.
I have Falcons on the way so it’s great to hear of new ear tip options. Where do you get those? I can only seem to find them at a place in Japan but they don’t ship except through a forwarding service.
Something to consider, all ear canals are unique. Not everyone's experience will be the same. My thoughts are, wait until you get your Falcons, test drive them.... and if you want to tip roll after that.... go crazy
I had the Massdrop x Noble X IEMs, but I was never really able to give them a shot. Fit issues, then the lack of opportunities to use IEMs regularly.
Recently, Massdrop had the Kaiser 10 one sale and I jumped on them for no specific reason other than curiosity.
What a sound. They're VERY pleasant to listen to. My main genre is technical death metal, which is tricky to find IEMs for: typically, treble- and mid-focused units are the key. For example, my Etymotic ER4XRs. Bass just needs to be there and accurate, but not overblown.
I won't say the Kaiser 10s are this. But DAMN. They've really changed the way I think about what an ideal IEM is for me, and also about fit: prior to them, I didn't realize I could even GET a fit from a UIEM which didn't have a small-bore nozzle (e.g. Westone, Etymotics). With foam tips, my horizons broaden significantly, which what I finally tried with the K10s.
This, in turn, made me dust-up my Campfire Audio Atlas to also finally give them a good shot, but the bass on these is just too much. On the K10s, it's sweet. On the Atlas, it's there, and everywhere. Not that these IEMs are comparable in any way whatsoever, but I gave them both a good go recently, so...
I still need to make my mind up on the cable. And I don't like the idea of being 100% reliant on foam tips. But that's the reality of it now for me to get a fit.
I'll continue using the K10s; I have the balanced cable with it, and will soon get the adapter to connect it to my amp at work. I'm really looking forward to trying this out.
