Very helpful information! the blue-tack mod was rather clever. We will see how my ears stand up to the treble. have you listened to them personally? Also, any experience with the v-sonic vsd5 compared to the level in?
Well as I've been saying, the trebly part can be compensated for, I don't want to listen to any headphones without equalization, especially on a smartphone. I chuckle actually when I read people complaining about this, maybe you have to play around for a while to get what you want, but what I've found is that it's clarity that you want from headphones and equalization can supply the balance if you have any kind of skills at all. I learned that 35 years ago actually when I first started getting into hi fi stuff. The thing about these buds really isn't the performance, it's the performance for spending $40. I've never been much into buds but these are pretty good. I might get some Westone W4's or W5's at some point but they are said to be on the muddier side which scares me a bit, I think that headphones are tergeted toward the plug and play crowd who think these are supposed to be great listening flat. So you hear some good reviews of something like Momentum over ears which I got when they first came out, they got long put away though as I used to like them a bit but I found that the Bose Q15's were better when you tweaked them and the Q25's that I use now much better than that, but not just plugging them in, they are thin but clear, you can fix the thin part then you get the richness you want and the clarity you want as well. So the level ins sound like absolute tin crap, a $2 headphone, listening on flat but they can be made to sound amazingly good for a $40 set of phones.
