Hey @irv - IEMs definitely are a much more personal, cosy experience, and the "placement" is of no concern here I love my IEMs, mostly this is where I listen to my music. The intimacy is just beautiful.
Not sure how is the response on these new BA IEMs. New Samsung Buds+ too have dual BAs and sound quite warm to me.My only theory right now is that this has more to do with market segmentation - the basshead demographic is served with cheap DD's, and most of the target audience for Hybrid IEM's is more in the audiophile side who are looking for flattish (and not the beats/fun signature).
Agree on that. I have both Porta pros and KSC75. I tend towards the porta pros - and those are good enough, especially with their collapsible headband (at least until my hair grows back on my head from my covid special tonsure)Coming to VFM headphones, KOSS KPH30i s are rated really high - so it's absolutely what one likes is what matters. Probably that's why we indulge in DIYs though it's little difficult to do it in portable audio.
No i think this is more like AMT vs dome tweeters - what is the best technology for a transducer. Most people agree that the dynamic drivers are the best for a particular value, though there are a wonderful variety of technologies from AMT to electrostatic to plasma discharge. but ultimately everyone agrees that for the value range, DD are hard to beat.So, this sounds like an equivalent of the speakers situation - full range vs multiple drivers. Is it?
