    Thanks for the picture Vince. I can't tell from this angle, but did you push the Spin fit tip all the way to the base? Never tried this combo, but the midrange and bass sound pretty darn good with this combo. Thanks for the heads up[​IMG]

    Ya, I have both pushed all the way to the base

    I'm glad Brooko mentioned sibilance being more under control. I was able to control it pretty well with tips + fit from my review pair. However, I just received a replacement pair and also find sibilance more under control, and there seems to be a bit more bass, as well. This is how the Duke was meant to be heard, and it's even better than before. Nice!

    Duke just went from awesome to awesomer :wink_face:

    Hisoundfi: I'll try spinfit, but I've got to say I'm pretty impressed with the stock clear biflanges. They're Lee's favorites, btw :wink:

    They don't seal my ear holes, sad face

    Hisoundfi: I hear us, bro!

    Duke just went from a wild beast I had to work a bit to tame to awesome right out of the box, which is how it should be. I'm glad VE worked with us to quickly rectify any issues.

    I'd definitely like to know if anything changed with the drivers - Lee?
    Or was it just the imbalance clearing the previous issue (added bass masking it a bit more)?

    Nope, same drive.
    You just got a bad pair. Sorry again lol

    Warm tint, linear bass with fast attack, tight with just a bit the punchiness, aggressive upper mid range, with an overall holographic and energetic presentation

    Do you guys agree?
  11. nmatheis Contributor
    Sounds about right, Hisoundfi. I wasn't going to call them warm before, but I can hear that now.
  12. Hisoundfi Contributor
    It's not a lot, just a smidge. Really well done

    Just got 'em back Vince - need to get used to the sig first :)

    Ditto, bass lines are pretty easy to hear without getting in the way, good texture, and I concur about the holographic presentation. Am a fan of its rather natural and realistic soundstage, specially for musical pieces involving wood instruments. Also try the interstellar OST for a kick. While you're at it, watch the new Suicide Squad trailer with the Duke, the background music sounds ethereal.
    Epic typic music fits the Duke like a glove. Really love songs from the artist Two steps from hell, awesome instrumentals.

    Last night I was listening to the Duke for the first time in over a week (yeah I know blasphemy :wink:) and I must say that it's warmer and smoother than my audible memory lead me to believe.

    I certainly remember now why these are my current favorites :)
