Anyone own the Westone W60 or 4R or UM Pro 50 here, please feedback and how does the impression sound laugh.gif

Very interesting on westone cause they package more armature drivers than Shure 846 max 4 drivers only

Actually shure 846 the sound not thick enough, so I dislike shure 846 btw

Honestly, does acoustic design on the inner housing matters? I wonder if plastic (cheaper ones) encasing does affect sound. Coz I really find the likes of Finals (especially), Dita, and IEMs with metal housing sound slightly different. Like they can afford louder sound w/o distortion (or is it because they're more expensive than the ones I tried? Shrugs).
Shure did a great job on their 846 low pass thingy. That's also related to what I'm talking about. Less on the driver unit, more on the design of passage between the driver and our ears.

I don't know, but just as an example, Sammy Rhapsodio mentioned that his flagship Galaxy actually sounds better (better details, brighter) in its universal metal housing, as opposed to the acryllic custom version (darker, bassier). This is the first time I've heard a company boss claiming that his uni is better than the custom lol.

Sure you can afford, but question is whether you like the Angie sound. Better bring your Remax to compare when testing.

I love metal or ceramic housing when done right. It has this special echo which makes the sound more "mature/stable". Or weighty.
But the latest kumitomo trio, it's Damn bright.

at canjam i noticed quite a few companies start using titanium shells or something like that, they claim it prevents vibration on the shell so all tje sound will be channeled to the ear canal and not lost in shell vibrations

but i dont buy their claim, there's no evidence of it

My engineer friends just admire the construction. Apatu metal injection moulding. They don't buy the claim of "better sound" either.

i beg to differ on this one. i own both Flare's R2A (aluminium) and R2Pro (titanium). The housing structure is the same, but made with different material. the sound signature is hugely different between these two. sound stage is also wider on the titanium one.

I didn't know that. Few that got mentioned are like the Pinnacle P1, RHA T10i, and the Macaw GT100s.

You sold the T20 confirm you looking for sound and not construction haha.

But I love the Jupiter sound, very airy and comfortable sig. Now looking for lubang to get it cheap cheap.

Sounds plausible, but as always sound is subjective. So there will never be a peer-reviewed, randomised controlled trials that will prove that titanium housings improve soundstage. Beauty in the ears of the beholder.

How are the Flares? Saw one in the garage sales. Live up to the hype?

No lah, buy n sell waste money, I should be a good one, can used for longer and at least few years.

RHA T20 sound is beautiful, but just 2 coil dynamics meant only produces 2 layers, bass & treble without mids, I like voices more more bassy.

So my REMAX S1 can deliver better balanced at all

But dunno why ppls still prefer Noble K10 smile.gif

it might not be the shell but the drivers, unless they use exact build except the shell

Yep. If what Final Audio Design claimed is true, they basically use the entirely same inner part on both Piano Forte IX and Piano Forte X, but I totally find the IX to be brighter than the much thicker X. IX is on stainless steel and X is on chrome copper. I tried the Piano Forte II, it sounds... well, like the bass reflected not evenly.

what is bass & treble without mids? V-shaped, or totally recessed, or totally no mids?
