I just got these earphones today. Immediately I noticed that the sound is more detailed than my old earphones,headphones and even my speakers. Both music and phone calls sound clearer and just better overall.
This is my first audiophile grade anything. They feel a little heavy but they are definitely sturdy. Iv'e tried almost all the ear tips and I like the comply tips best even though they are pretty hard to put on and take off. The wire connects to the earphones very easily with an deffinative click. The wire feels pretty sturdy and It doesn't tangle easily because of the plastic coating. The microphone is surprisingly good it didn't pick up any noise as it bounced around while I was walking which really surprised me. so far no paint chips and nothing is broken. Ill update this more as I discover more about them through their use.
update 1: The earphones continue to impress. listening to Adele through them it sounded like I was hearing her songs for the first time. truly stunning vocals it sounded much closer to being in person than my non HiFi equipment the detail in her voice is just mmm.
On the other hand when I listen to some pop songs it was like I was hearing them for the first time again but this time, not in a good way. They sound so artificial I feel like I can hear the auto tune and sometimes the more powerful vocals have static at the top of the volume like the sound when you yell into a cheap microphone. I think I've never been able to hear the poor quality of some recordings until now.
Welcome to high-end audio, you will begin to hear poor recordings and vocals etc. A lot of audio dudes I know will typically own a more "consumer-friendly" set of iems or headphones for music that just does not mix well with such gear.
Thanks! I'm happy to be a listener. I am just glad I didn't toss my old lower quality earphones. For example Chandelier by Sia sounds like staticky garbage with these, it was really surprising.
Update 2: I've been using the comply tips with them and I feel like I am getting a pretty neutral sound experience. I'd say the treble is a little stronger than the mids or bass. Over all the sound quality is very clear. These are not headphones so I cant expect them to sound as full but they are pretty damn close.
I tried these on my friends amp/dac combo unit. They definitely liked it I only listened for a few mins so I cant put my finger on what exactly changed but it was a positive change.
well here is another update even though it seems that no one is reading these XD. I am becoming a believer of burnin. I think the sound has slightly changed it sounds like there is a smoother transition between different pitches. when I first got them I felt like I had to play them too loud to really hear the sound quality but now even on the lowest volume I can enjoy them. I think this is more largely attributed to my ears getting used to their sound but I also do believe there has been a slight change in the actual quality of it for the better.
Help I cant stop listening. XD
