So, I think I’ve found a good spot with headphones for now, having my 4XX that I still adore, 7506 (as soon as I get them back up and running) with either Brainwaves oval protein leather or Dekoni Elite Velour pads (the protein is much more comfortable, but the velours add some low end), M40x with 1540 pads, and these Dekoni Blues have me trying to figure out what direction to go with them for pads. (The MU6 is great and all, but I just don’t find myself liking them quite as much)
Now for iems, I’m stuck as far as trying to figure out what it is I wanna go with.
Out of the ones I do have, I enjoy my GR-i68(stock double flange) and Starfields(Symbio W) the best. The Senfer XBA-6-in-1 has been acting up whenever I try using them, so I’ve lost all interest in fighting them. My BL03 are… Okay, but I don’t see the low end like some other people seem to, and tend to be relegated more to “I’m gonna be listening to a talking head video while doing something, and have to have one side out”. Then there’s the 1More Piston Fit that tend to get relegated more to “I need something with a mic, and don’t wanna be bothered with bluetooth”(they aren’t terrible, they are just… sloppy, I guess).
Either way, I can’t help but feel the need to keep looking for something to satisfy me on the IEM side of things, and figured I’d reach out and ask for help/advice. I’d rather not go over $150, but can go up to $200
Of the songs I listen to most often, this is a list of their artist’s genera and how many times that genera popped up:
I’m not trebble sensitive till you get a particularly sharp pair of IEMs or headphones just right at around 8-9k just right(right about where I notice the sharp highs in Nishio 2 by Lamaitre are hitting, unless I am mistaken)
