View Full Discussion @asigal, did you notice any difference after some burn in? I looked at these and decided to give it a shot but got mine on amazon for the same price as massdrop. For rock/EDM/electronica and my ears they do not suck, but the sound does have some quirks as pointed in the reivew above. The ergonomics could be an issue. More after I play with the tips and A/B a little more. They may not be a good choice for classical or opera due to the V (maybe even W shape).
I don't have any issues with the sharp edges that some others have mentioned. However, yes, there is a burn-in period of 75-100 hours (a long time). I noticed the highs even out, and become less fatiguing. If at all possible, I would recommend keeping the Macaws and using an equalizer to fix some of the quirks and fill out the lower range, as they can be very satisfying that way.
I'm lucky enough to be able to keep several IEM's around. These are keepers, so are the Flares, and the RHA T20's from Amazon warehouse (open box) for @ $180.00. I got in on the nuforce drop but I couldn't get sub-bass (without eq) out of the HEM2's but they were also good from midrange on up. I may sell them.
I wish I had that kind of selection! Wow! I'm getting in a pair of Accutone Gemini HD's and am interested in seeing how it stacks up against the GT100s. They are almost the same in terms of features, but have completely different driver coils.
My idea: You don't develop a taste for red wine by walking into a liquor store and ordering a 200.00 bottle of wine. You start with 15.00 -> 25.00 bottles and taste a lot of them. So I'm trying to do a lot of listening.
So I just took a quick look at the Accutones and I was curious as to why them? From my surfing I'm guessing that Vsonic gr07 classics would be a good safe buy in that price range.
You are correct. However, since I was able to get the Accutones very easily, I thought it to be better for me to get for the purpose of reviewing. I have yet to come across a truly comprehensive Gemini HD review.
