Which one? the NX7 MkIII is not peaky in the least. The original NX7 had the rep of being peaky, but even that was exaggerated. Now those early KZ's were peaky. The old SFR's were peaky. The TFZ Kings are peaky. The Toneking Shockwave III was peaky. CCA C12? PEAKY! Those are peaky. The Senns and NX7's? NAH.
we have different ears dude, we cant argue. to my ears, both NX7 first version and last version are utterly bad in treble quality, so it hurt my ears even if im half-treble head. As well, their zero musicality, which is even more subjective.

NX7 are in same league as KZ, CCA, TRN IMO...and they use same bellsing BA. Im sensible about timbre, thats my bias. KZ ZS10 PRO offer way better value for similar timbre and perhaps better tonal balance...if it s very important i can compare both.

No strange bloom! The signature is slightly on brighter side! Bass is tight and controlled despite having two DDs for bass. Excellent clean and crisp sound, very good transparency, wide and open spacious presentation...in fact, why not go through my review? I have compared it with 4 iems:

I already have my crush with 3DT :beyersmile: cannot live without it...In fact, even when I was listening to UM Mirage, I found myself going back for the 3DT every once in a while. In the UM 3DT thread, everyone who owns 3DT confirms this - even though they might have more expensive gears, they always at some point go back to 3DT. It is always in the rotation.

Thank you for the appreciation :smiley: I try to put my feelings into words as truly as possible. I am not yet very much adept in understanding precipitation of notes, dynamics, etc. So I leave them out of my reviews.

TheNX7 uses Piezoelectric Ceramic Driver for the highs, not a Bellsing, for all versions of the NX7. So there's that.

damn stop guys....just stop LOL
i scan every info and im like...ok, its no hyper look at me things.

my brain already try to find a way to grab those....

is it a new or oldish IEM?

Oh, man, trying to explain the abstract sound world isnt easy indeed, at least for me which im french too, tbh, im 100% always disappointed by what i write. You can pretend to be confident, but as soon as you enter ''third eye'' critical listening mode you have doubt. I'm full of doubt. Thus i will never be a self proclaim audio guru like some...wannabe. With the help of some graphs to compensate lack of confidence....in audiophile doubt.

Common people dont even get our geeky blabla..

But at least, it help to figure sound portrait when they does. I guess.

Im more intrigue by those than the AWW hybrid.

I guess you're referring to the 3DT. It's fairly new, just came out last year December I believe. Try to grab it, it is one hell of an iem.

TheNX7 uses Piezoelectric Ceramic Driver for the highs, not a Bellsing, for all versions of the NX7. So there's that.
yes....the upper highs are cover by piezo. its more about low-mid treble here for me. highs cover large spectrum (about 3-20khz)
Give a try to BQEYZ SPRING2 mate, i think youll like it...and if your a treble head ''like me'', well, i pull off the mesh to have more treble energy, air, imaging openness etc.

sorry if i look rude, it was cause of the ''Hahaha'' thing...you have all the right to enjoy NX7mk3 and once we know we are different, well , i will not argue to convince you of my tonal preference. But i can suggest you other piezo hybrids that i feel is a step up for me. Just in case.

I auditioned the Spring 2. Liked it, but felt the stage was a bit narrower than Penon Orb.
Recently the BQEYZ Summer is garnering rave reviews. Did you have chance to listen to it? I will have it for review this month or next month. Presently Moonddrop Aria is on its way to me.

Thank you.
Sales start on the 15th of June and continue through the 22nd. I'm not sure which of these dates will be affecting sales on audio gear, so keep an eye out for good deals.
