DM6 vocals are more leveled than on IT01; DM6 is not mid centered, but vocals don´t sound thin to me. But that´s me, with my old 60 years old ears and hearing limited to 12,5 Khz
Currently I am having a hard time finding a tip that does not stay in my ear canal when retiring the IEM. The stem is ridiculously short.
Regarding soundstage DM6 has more depth and portraits ambience better, and more 3D if I could say so.

Now, "big soundstage for movies".. As a movie lover, I have spent years looking for a satisfactory solution for a headphone-based surround sound system, and after trying several systems (not too many available actually) I finally found it, Smyth Research Realizer. Here we are talking about soundstage of several feet . A room filled with sounds using headphones.... Just magical. Best purchase ever by far...
Sorry for sidetracking this thread
Thanks alot the Smyth research realizer sounds very tempting for someone like me! Which model is it btw? Also, for clarification, when you say it is not mid centred do you mean the vocals are inline with the rest of the sound or the vocals are slightly recessed? Because you have both it01 and dm6 I am asking you so I can figure out if it really is an upgrade for me.

Switched from stock tips to E Final tips on BGVP DM6 and after 20 hours of burn-in, I am liking very much what I am hearing: tight and controlled bass, which kicks hard when called upon; no bass bleeding on midrange, male vocals sound particularly clean; midrange is polished and detailed. Initial rough edge in treble not longer present. Very 3D like presentation.
I find myself often lost in the music and forget paying atention to technicalities, and that is a good sign!!
After some more burn-in, going to try some tips from Ibasso and Tenmak that I have around.
On the negative side the stock wire is too flashy for me. Could someone recommend some options?

my dac has 2.5mm balanced out, is it worth it to buy some 2.5mm balanced cables for multi balance armature earphones, does it make any difference?

Because you have both it01 and dm6 I am asking you so I can figure out if it really is an upgrade for me.
I just played some Ella Fitzgerald´s recordings on both IT01 and DM6 and her voice sounds inline with the orchestra´s sounds,while on IT01 it sounds a little recessed. Hope it helps.
At this moment, for me, the DM6 is an upgrade over IT01 considering the emotional engagement I derive from them. Again, we sure have different expectations on what is an upgrade or not.
I am a happy camper with DM6

Regarding Smyth Research, I got the model A8, which was their first model. I was so sold on the technology that I arranged a trip from South America to Chicago to purchase the system. ( I contacted a high end store in New York but they didn´t bother to answer my request). Well, at that store in Illinois (Glenn´s Poor Audio) they open it for me one Sunday, where Mr Lorr Kramer from SR made the measurements himself. I ended up "cloning" a 5.1 system based on Wilson Audio Sasha, the 7.1 system at their Home theater room, and several 2.0 rigs (Magnepanan, and Sashas).
The "cloning" process (for lack of a better word) includes the whole audio chain from the audio source right up to the listener´s ear canals, including the room´s acoustics.
Every single time that I use the system I´m in awe. Is that good.
If you want want more details on SR Realizer please send me a PM.
regards

Certainly worth picking up one inexpensive cable to try out and see what you think. Balanced performance improvement or lack thereof will to some extent depend on how balanced and single-ended are implemented in your particular source. (Also a factor is whether you have any earphones that require more power than your source puts out in SE.)
