Also, I know that doesn't reach super high, but i don't have specific test tones beyond 18khz since I wouldn't personally be able to hear much past that personally. All of my music, especially brighter stuff like female vocals and j-pop can still shine for me without being fatiguing.
There is plenty of extension for tiny in-ear at this price. This single, 5mm dynamic driver is incredibly impressive. Perhaps your seal is still not good, I had to step up in Comply foam sizes to Large even though i'd been using Mediums on most of my other earbuds for as long as I can remember.
Seal is good. Perhaps I am comparing them to headphones. I've still liked much cheaper IEMs better. I don't need response graphs for what I can hear. Also I can take a lot more treble and midrange before being fatigued. These sound very good and very spacious, they just sound like the music they reproduce is gray and boring. Very very boring. I almost compulsively doused them in oil and burned them to rid the world of such utterly terrible nonsense.
I got the first harmonic ieb6's and didn't think they were wonderful, but I didn't really burn them in yet. However what you described fit the beyerdynamic DX120's to me, and I heard others were enjoying theirs.
I suppose then we are cases that show how subjective hearing can be. These punch above their price point IMO, and can compete with more expensive IEM's like the IM02 and even SE535. I personally do not plan on upgrading any time soon until I can afford a proper pair of CIEM's since i'm pretty hard on my equipment.
The biggest problem I have is what seems like a "hole"/dip in the lower mids that can make some male vocals seems a bit sucked out depending on the track mastering.
FWIW, i find these headphones insanely hard to drive properly for IEM's. I usually have to crank up my NFB-11 when switching between these and HD600's to get what I feel are comparable listening levels.
Well they aren't the best ever but they are better than the Flares (not hard). They are also very good for the price.
