Absolutely, each driver can have a different level of approach. Impedance can affect it too at different Fq's. Its one reason i love ribbon tweeters in my speaker builds, they have a lot of air and sparkle without any harshness, generally (if well implemented with the x/o).

Seems like Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews is actually getting a set of IEMs made to his specs. He mentions a price point of around $50 and a FR related to the BLON BL03. I'm curious to see what they end up priced at and where all you can get them once he can make them available for purchase. I wanted to link the post, but mobile is being unkind to my attempts, so you'll have to settle for a screen cap:

They do look quite pretty and fairly compact overall. If he actually manages to price them at $50, I'll buy a set.
this reviewer is very strange, it is impossible to understand in the video what the headphones look like, he would have hung a camera in the far corner of the apartment. He says some kind of garbage, I personally do not understand what he mumbles. Hmm, I also do reviews where you can see every detail of the earphone, apparently I need to shoot from the Nokia 3310 camera, sorry, facepalm

I understand your point, but thats a bit rude.

He does his unboxes/closer looks on his Tweeter account, generaly.

You don't have to like someone or agree with an opinion/review. I can't fully agree everytime with every reviwer. But you don't need to be rude. Specially to a colegue...

I didn't want to sound rude, it's just that when I want to watch the review, I get nothing from it: neither a distinct appearance nor a generalized answer in sound. :frowning2:

TWITTER a little blocked in my country haha :)
(Can watch post, cant watch a video)

The only benefit of having Twitter is micro-local news that is not easily available on news portals. Else it is the most toxic SM of all. People are just vile to each other there!

It makes me very sad whenever I click a link that goes there.

Absolutely, a very valid point about "placebo".

Then $10 placebo and $1000 placebo should work the same, unless departing with extra money enhances someone's feelings :)

Not surprisingly, the recepients of this extra money do work hard to try to make people believe that it should enhance someone's reputation :) :)

You joke but this is actually a very well studied and documented psychological effect! For instance:

News on Twitter? That is new to me. :L3000:

Not a discovery though, so I apologize for derailing this thread.

Cheers.
In my country, locals usually share updates on Twitter about trains, traffic, rains etc. So it's super helpful+real time and aids in better decision-making. Hence the term micro local news, it's like folks in the surrounding suburbs sharing regular updates.

Surely a hype train is so called if the item is not worthy. It is not hype if it is truly awesome!
ridiculous take. no offense. a hype train can have two outcomes. one is worthy of the hype. the other is not worthy of the hype. Lebron was a hype train out of high school. he turned out to be worthy of the hype. Kwame Brown was hyped coming out of high school. he didn't live up to the hype train. Same goes with audio gear. The GK10 are worthy of the hype. The Mofesest Trio? Not so much. The idea isn't "hype train" so they suck. That's just incredibly flawed and stupid thinking if you ask me.

With all due respect to Geek Wold GK10, I’m ordering from 3DD GeeK Wold GK3 from Penon. Hopefully it arrives in couple of weeks!
