@Georgel any opinions so far on campfire comet vs senfer dt6 vs moondrop kanas pro?
What type of sound are you looking for?
I heard not one of those, but I have a huge collection of IEMs in the 100 - 200 USD price range, and I should be able to assist
I'm looking for something which is not fatiguing and which is something warm(somewhat durable)(i think it will compliment dt770, or not, idk), i mainly listen to pop+edm mix, kpop and instrumental.my budget is at max 200$.
So i can't do fh5 which are for ≈250
Shozy CP and FiiO M9 make a good pair!
Warm and smooth in that price range, I'd say go with something like Shozy CP I linked above if you want midrange-forward, or you could consider something like Final Audio E4000, which should be unbeatable for that price and for this type of sound
Thanks for helping me choose
@Georgel What is your opinion of "burn in"? Some say it is a myth, while others swear by it and have special techniques to burn in their new headphones. I'm interested to hear what you think.
I'm always happy to help!
I'm torn about this. Some stuff sounds better after a while, and some doesn't
Speaker burn in is very real and physical.
Electronic burn-in is real, and proven in factories, where they typically do it to lower the number of returned products, or of DOA
Everything has some degree of burn-in, but whether a IEM or a headphone has an audible burn-in is a more complex story. I do burn-in with music, for a number of hours, at normal listening volume, because I do reviews, but I do not necessarily hear it as much with everything. I certainly heard some changes in sound with some equipment, but not with everything, and I stronlgy believe that it has a mental / psychological side as well, where you literally get used to a new sound.
With over 100 pieces of equipment, I'd have noticed if everything got some kind of burn-in, but more than anything, I notice myself adjusting and learning how everything sounds. Of course, some do change, but most certainly not all.
Also, new video on youtube!
I found pretty much the same, some of my headphones were very noticeable, while others sound the same as the day I first got them. You are probably right that most of it is psychological though - it took me a while to get used to my K550s as they are pretty neutral sounding compared to other headphones i've used. I found the same thing was true going to a more warm sounding non-neutral pair - the bass was overwhelming at first until I got used to it.
