    PS4 has nice balance and is very musical. What colors did you go for?

    Someone on another site asked for a Deca and Andromeda comparison, so I suppose I'll post the detailed comparison here later today.

    Deca vs Andromeda
    Bass on both the Deca and Andromeda are excellently textured. Quantities aren’t that much different but Andromeda is definitely a little bassier in deep and sub bass. From less than 1 ohm sources, the Andromeda bass rises the deeper it goes, whereas the Deca bass is more linear with equal amounts mid and sub bass. Both dig very deep with zero roll off. 
    Female vocals on Andromeda feel just a little laid back in direct comparison to the Deca. On it’s own, the Andromeda has really good energy and clarity for female vocals, whereas the Deca places female vocals more intimately and with more energy, while having similar levels of clarity. Male vocals a just a hair fuller and more intimate on the Andromeda when compared to the Deca, revealing it’s downward sloping frequency response. In comparison male vocals on the Deca are a little thinner, with greater clarity and balance with the rest of the presentation. Both are highly resolving and extremely satisfying when balancing resolution with musicality. 
    When it comes to treble, Andromeda has amazing sparkle and shimmer, without being harsh or fatiguing. While it has a downward sloping frequency response, it rebounds with a rise middle treble for a wide and airy presentation. Distortion rock guitars have excellent bite and crunch, and rock anthems soar. By comparison, the Deca is a smoother, more laid back treble. It has nice sparkle but is definitely more reserved than the Andromeda. While not lacking a sense of air on it’s own, next to the Andromeda it sounds more grounded and polite. 
    Both the Andromeda and Deca are excellent performers and well worthy of their TOTL price tags. I’d give the nod to the Deca for a more reference tuning and the Andromeda for a slightly more musical and airy approach.

    How would you compare Deca vs Zeus?
  4. shotgunshane Contributor

    Gah, I just sent the Deca off before making that obvious comparison. However I plan to hopefully purchase a Deca maybe next month.

    Too bad. Anw, how would you compare them according to your memory? :p

    Hmm, hard to say because I've been working on reviews for other stuff and haven't used the Zeus as much as of late. But I'd say Zeus-R is wider and airier sounding. Treble really has become the star in the remastered Zeus. Whereas the Deca treble is a bit more laid back in comparison.

    I think the Deca extends better in bass. There's not going to much out there, in balanced armature makeup, that can extend in sub like the Deca.

    Thank you. That actually helps a lot. I'm using my JH Layla, Roxanne currently but I'm looking for IEM that have more wider and airier sounding than those two.

    My PS4s have arrived and they sound great. I wanted to get the Fusion 11s but my ears are small and Mike could not get all the bits in a small enough package.

    Hello, I just discovered this brand of CIEMs. Any recommendations in their lineup which have a neutral to bright sound with clear vocals and bass that is not flat (so a little north of neutral)? I would also prefer one of the models which has a silicone option. Thanks.

    Not sure how I missed this post. The AR6 or Deca should match that description. The AR6 has the more neutral bass, so the Deca probably gets the bass you are looking for.

    Speaking of the Deca, the intro pricing ends this Friday!

    Thank you, I will ask Perfect Seal about these two models. How do you find the AR6 and Deca compare to Custom Art's Harmony 8 Pro?
  13. shotgunshane Contributor

    It's been a very long time since I heard the Harmony 8 Pro and I didn't spend a lot of time with it, because I didn't care for the treble tonality, but the midrange and bass were very enjoyable. So I don't think I'll be very helpful here but I'll say if you enjoy the brightness level of the H8P, I'd recommend the AR6. While its treble isn't quite as present as I remember the H8P, it has an upper mid bump that helps add some perceived brightness and clarity. Bass might be a hair less in quantity in the AR6 but it will be more linear and extended. Both the AR6 and Deca have some of the best BA bass extension I've heard.
