View Full Discussion So...
I received these yesterday and my impression with them is very bad.
I gotta admit that I do own higher-end IEMs such as K10 CIEM, SE846, UE900S but I just can't stop thinking that maybe mine is just defective or this whole batch is bad.
Overall sound is extremely muddy.
Mid-range is so clumped together that I feel like I am listening a music that is playing in the next room.
As @K.T.N mentioned how they are warm yet clear, I really can't see that characteristic on mine.
Even comparing them with SE215 and M750i, sound is at the level that I can't listen...
Does anyone have similar experience?
EDIT: My setup is Macbook Pro Retina -> ifi Nano iDSD -> ifi Micro iCAN.
Muddy is not how I would describe the Heaven III at all. I find them quite detailed in the mids. I'm not sure what is going on with your unit or fit, but your description does not match my units from two different drops.
Yeah they are pretty muddy compared to most other IEM's I have tried. Bass and lower mids are somewhat bloated, highs are very laid back. Sound is very subjective though and I think most people's impressions are going to depend on what IEM's they were listening to before they put these in. If I listen to my old bose IEM's for about 15 mins and then switch to these they actually sound pretty clear and detailed lol.
I wouldn't say they are bad, but I feel like there are better options within the same price range.
I agree. Muddy and congested. Super disappointed especially since at least one other owner said these were similar in fit and performance as the classic Klipafh X10. These are no where near as comfortable or dynamic.
