How do these compare to the Pinnacle Px?
Warm and V shaped. Tonally, they're ok at this price point. Definitely a colored sound but more so than the PX from memory. I liked the ergonomics of the PX more and thought they sounded a bit better as a whole overall. Not a huge margin by any means but the DMG can be too warm on certain tracks and things can get a bit masked. The DMG can sound a little sharp on certain tracks due to the slightly recessed mids but it wasn't overly so. This is all compared to the PX mind you. They measure rather closely and while PX is colored, I found the DMG to be more warm and a little bit more hot up top. The PX is lighter on the bass with slightly recessed mids and a bit of treble boost up top.
If you want more bass (not basshead levels) and don't mind more recessed mids, go for the DMG. Just be mindful the treble can be a bit hot on some tracks but your tolerance for this may vary.
sweet, thanks for the reply, it helps a lot!
You mentioned recessed mids in the DMG, do vocals still come through clean?
Yeah, they do. For some used to the mids of Sennheiser being more forward may feel they are too pushed back. I prefer my mids to be pulled back just a tad but the DMG may have pulled them back a bit too much overall. It's not the worst I've heard and they still have air and clarity but this is where they can get too warm or hot in the treble depending on the track due to this.
I think it'll really boil down to the music you listen to that determines how much this'll bother you. For me, it was just a bit too much. The PX is one of my faves although I do EQ for some more meat in the low end. Otherwise, they're a fun, colored IEM that just sounds different than my other stuff.
Sorry, not much to add on this model, never looked into it before.
