How are these compared to the rain3s?
These are my new favorite. I find the sound of these is still punchy in the bass without being overbearing. We tightened it up to make them less muddy and then got the highs up a little to make them a bit more clear as well.
I too would like to know exactly how they compare though, are you saying the rain3s have an overbearing amount of bass and are more muddy? A couple years ago I know your site had these side-by-side comparisons of the models but I can't find it anymore, so I'm wondering exactly what the differences are between models nowadays. This is coming from someone who owns your whole line of earbuds and both On models short of the rain3 and ts03. My buddy and I swear by the ms02s and use them daily in the office - phenomenal IEMs in my opinion.
Edit - the First Harmonics I also love, mainly for their tight bass and soundstage, but am wary to use them too often due to many reviewers on Amazon saying they fall apart and given that I purchased them over a year ago.
Not really. The rain are more relaxed in both the highs and lows. The ts02 was more of a warm sounding IEM. If I were to compare these to anything, I would compare them to the ms02 but slightly warmer and a little less fatiguing on the high end. As for first harmonic, we are not 100% sure about how we will move forward with that brand. I can tell you that thinksound will be releasing high end metal ear buds in the near future and they will be made in the USA. This is project is taking up most of my time on development so first harmonic will be moved to the back burner for now. I guess this is an unofficial announcement about thinksound making metal earbuds.
you are also welcome to get these and if you don't like them you are certainly welcome to return them. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try and discuss sound a little more or work something out for you.
I greatly appreciate your replying with such detail and the offer and everything, let alone the times I've emailed you and you've helped me out with an exchange or warranty claim. Always very professional and customer service and mindset is top notch. I'm definitely excited to pick these up.
I'm sad to hear about First Harmonic. I've bought maybe 10 of the IE6B s as gifts and for myself. My family really loves them and we're happy with the quick turnaround on service from you guys. I've also had your ON2 headphones which I love as welll as your ms02 that I got from a blue box (I use them as my EDC now). Looking forward to the rest of the great products that you guys will push out!
it may not be done completely but I need to focus on thinksound more as we move to new products and move more manufacturing to the USA. I will have metal earbud options for thinksound in the future. Thanks for being a continued customer.
