Subtonic STORM: Impressions and Discussion
Apr 24, 2024 at 2:32 PM Post #946 of 1,009
100%. Cards on the table, I'm not really really swayed by aesthetics unless it's choosing a custom but I've never really given Storm a second thought for looks, it's not really why I'm in this hobby...

Edit : can you squiggly science guys move the chat to the appropriate channel as its getting a bit old in the tooth now. If you want to talk a out FR graphs etc and theory then there's a place for that. If it's specific to Storm, then be my guest.

For me personally, I'm not terribly enamored with either design, so apathy in equal parts here. But I did find the entire faceplate debate funny as all heck. :smile:

Silver lining...Storm thread must be top of the new posts page constantly right now! Nothing quite like a bit of free promotion. :gs1000smile: :beerchug:

I think biggest threads derail was that of MDR-Z1R. I think original thread was shut down at the end

What did you think of it?

From memory Joe said it had no dynamics off Shanling M9 Plus, but was better on HiBy RS6. I'll leave him to answer more.

Interesting, I feel like Storm sounds even plenty dynamic from the iPhone dongle (sacrilege I know), but I don't have portable DAP right now.

However, this is all I need for now <3

As a rep of another manufacturer I don't think I will 🫠 I will say that I was in a pretty graph free state of mind that day, listened to earpieces on random music before reading or watching anything about them, and wanted to be impassioned by whatever met the ear like any good old audiophile without any controls. And the results seem to show that I might have been a basshead in another life 🙉

From 3 of daps ( wm1am2, n30le, and rs8 ), i prefer my storm when pairing with wm1am2 ( volume about 80 high gain ). I will try it with apple dongle, who knows i like it more than wm1am2. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

As a basshead, I will have to say being a basshead is the supreme choice.
