  2. Serious replied to the thread Improving my IEM measurement rig..

    @purr1n I suspect a roll of felt around the inside would need to be quite thick to have a comparable effect. I'll try it out and report...

    Yes, I was planning on doing something similar. Larger inner diameter near the exit and smaller diameter near the microphone/eardrum....

  4. Serious liked Biodegraded's post in the thread T50MKIII.

    Here they are after re-assembly. I did swap the front magnets around as stated above, but I doubt that had much to do with it. More...

    Improving my IEM measurement rig.

    I've mentioned this again and again, but I was just not happy with how my measurements of IEMs came out. After a post in the Andromeda...

    Yup, that's what I'm trying to minimize. I'm planning to do experiments again for a better IEM coupler. More later. EDIT: Continued...

  7. Serious liked purr1n's post in the thread Campfire Audio Andromeda Review: Holy Cow, This is a Dream, Awesomesauce!.

    The problem is that the coupler isn't your ear and ear hole. What you may have been experiencing could merely be coincidental dependent...

  8. Serious replied to the thread Campfire Audio Andromeda Review: Holy Cow, This is a Dream, Awesomesauce!.

    Just tried it with my RE272. Made an EQ profile to match the UERM's response up to 5kHz very closely (based on my own measurements,...

  9. Serious liked Lyander's comment on Golmang's profile post

    I take offence to not preferring 1kHz dips to 500-600Hz! :P Kidding aside yeah the 909 fixes some of the 900's issues but doesn't key...

  10. Serious commented on Golmang's profile post.

    Ouch, that looks like I might even prefer the older one. Treble peak looks not-at-all-fixed and instead of 500Hz dip you now get a...

  11. Serious commented on Golmang's profile post.

    You're right, thanks for catching that. Also makes more sense that way, since IME more distance from driver to ear = more upper mids. So...

    Interesting how the new pinna has so much less upper midrange. Probably the headphone resting on the pinna.

    Haven't heard the FDX1, but in this case I also suspect it's mainly the bass and the other FR differences. But when comparing RE-400 vs...

    Quick experiment for everyone to try: I recorded a sound with known high amounts of ultrasound (banging keys together) with a microphone...

  15. Serious liked purr1n's post in the thread Fuck MQA - Bob Stuart is a wanker.

    I'll take a better mixdown / remaster over any hires. If people are going to look for music, they should be looking for recordings...
