Insidious Meme lent me these among others for a listen/measurement. Thanks mang!
. I was very curious about these given that at some point they were relatively given a high discount and well regarded. What put me off in the past were the reports about being a bit difficult to fit for some.Sound
IM had these with triple flanges. For some reason I could not get seal with those tips at all. So I used my SHE3590 (with some difficulty). With the Philips tips I feel these are somewhat warm sounding, and a bit rolled off on both extremes, but the bass still manages good impact. More so IMO than what I heard from the Noble 4s, but less than some of the dynamic driver IEMs I have around. They seem pretty laid back. I can't say I like them a lot, but they are not a full assault on my senses.
Note that different tips are more than likely going to yield a different sound signature.Comfort
Horrible (for me). I had a hard time getting these to fit me, and even when I got seal it wasn't that comfy. Maybe the nozzle is on the large side of things.Presentation
I like the blue and black presentation. Pretty elegant.Price
I think they are going for ~$300 (Amazon)... I wouldn't call it a bargain in the general sense, but 3 armature drivers + crossover are proly not cheap either. I wouldn't buy them at any price given personal comfort issues with them.Overall
Not too bad, but not my sound and did not fit me.Measurements (uncompensated)
