I just bought the TRN V80 IEMs- the first IEM's I've ever owned. Truly incredible fidelity. How do these compare to the V80's?
The BGVP's are in another class of sound quality. Once you buy them you'll realise that the TRN V80's aren't actually that great. Believe me, I bought a pair out of curiosity and I can't go back to them after listening to the FH5's. Buying these IEM's won't be a purchase you regret - until you look at the DM6's price range.
Way better, one of the best IEM's in this price range
Don't have the TRN V80, but these DMG are a bit boomy depending on the song, they are V shape, so depends on what you like listening is going to matter. I don't recommend them for Rock/Metal; at least my unit get overwhelm with the bass leaking into the mids.
Sounds better on my case with the following setup: Silver filter, Foam tips and not push all the way in on my ears, it dials down the bass a bit.
Clarity is there, albeit sometimes a bit bright , some peaks here and there.
I use the gold filters and foam tips on the DMG for the tamest highs and for me it works well for rock music. I wouldn't know about metal or hair bands.
The silver and blue filters had too peaky highs for me, but were still better than the TRN80, which I think could have been really good if they'da backed off the treble peaks.
They are a bit harsh at times. I do listen to a lot of rock and blues- loud. Actually i think one of the drivers in the left may be damaged- on one song with a piano intro there's a bit of a "rattling" sound. I plan on reversing the wires to see if it's the IEM or the recording but i don't hear that distortion on speakers or headphones. Is it uncommon for a driver in these types of IEM's to go bad? It's almost a rattling sound- almost as if something is loose in the housing.
