    From my experience, that normally should be the case since high power will smoothen out some treble and as a result pronounce more bass and mids. So basically the gain is too much for the IEM that it alters its frequency response.

    thanks, i was just happy reading Currawong since his remarks relaxed my temptation for new gear but now you buzzed in and spoiled everything. receive hate message from my wallet... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    thanks for restoring my trust in people [​IMG]

    I thought gain was equivalent to turning up the volume. Am I completely misled?

    Sorry... I know how it feels....
    Yeah, this is what is happening. I do find the treble a tad bit too sharp for my taste so this a good thing?

    I thought that my DX100 was changing the sound with the different gain levels, but after careful testing and confirmation from iBasso I discovered this was an illusion. Due to the way our ears work, we perceive the frequency response differently at higher or lower volume levels. This is what you're hearing, not a change in the electronics.

    lol luckily 1+2 can handle sources with different powers pretty well. I still remember trying JH16 on dx100 with high gain.... Bass is all what I heard..
    IMO, ak120 and 901 are better sources for just 1+2 than DX100. Dx100 is already spacious (mid not as forward as other DAPs), so it make 1+2 sounds super clear and large, but somewhat lack of weight and smoothness.
  8. lin0003
    Yeah, that makes sense. I find when I listen at louder volumes the mids seem to move closer.

    +1 is there really a knew tralucent iem? Would really love to know how it will compare with the new CIEMs like the noble kaiser and jh Roxxane

    No, no no no, there isn't.

    If there is I'm quitting Head-Fi lol.

    The only thing you can do with DX100 is to turn on your EQ and reduce about 2-3 db at 4000 Hz (ideally it should be 6000 Hz), but it will still add some weight and lushness. Maybe add 1db at 1000 Hz? Try it out.
    Also changing tips are much more effective than EQ.
    I use comply T500 tips, cut the ends until I hear a more neutral, musical sound. 
    You might need to experiment with this, cut too much will make it too harsh, too little will make it a bit dull. This also depends on your ear canal size/shapes and how old the comply tips are.
    Every time I switch on a pair of new T500 tips, I noticed instant change in bass impact and warmth of the sound. Overtime, the sound opens up more and bass settle down a bit.
    Since it's a universal, just take your time and find what sound suits best for you:wink:

    Whaaaaaat ?! Are you insinuating I invented the 7plusπ ?!!

    To be honest, I'm not much of an EQ and comply fan, but I'll give the EQ a try. Comply just gets disgusting.

    Your mischievous games won't pass by my bridge Mimouille. [​IMG] Right onto you I was......
