My latest toy is the Cayin N6ii-Ti, coupled here with the excellent FAudio Dark Sky... in my ears, so only the cable visible 😉

How is the Dark Sky VS the Isabellae?

Their graphs are not too different, Dark Sky seems to have more bass, but the rest seems too close.

I only have Dark Sky a couple of days and as yet to a/b with Isa but certainly similarities but Dark Sky then has indeed a noticeable increase of bass along with wider soundstage and I would say more details/clarity. They definitely both address the same genres in my library and it will be interesting to test soon.

Timbre in particular has really jumped out and while they play electronic music no problem, I'm enjoying female vocals, jazz, modern classical a lot more - upright bass for example in jazz sounds incredibly lifelike - as does percussion in the highs, they have really nailed that mix along with how vocals are presented, much better than the slightly recessed IE900 mids. I will test over the next couple of weeks as part of a planned review.

I don't believe it, haha) I demand a photo! And impressions about the sound. I've been thinking about this model, so it would be interesting to know what you think. Thanks.

Impressions to follow but I did give a sense of my thoughts a couple of posts ago... in summary: I love Dark Sky!
