How would you say these compare in terms of soundstage/detail retrieval/decay to the TSMR-3? I’ve heard the DLC driver can compete with balanced armatures in decay and details, though I’m wondering how the soundstage differs.
Hi, the IT01s has greater soundstage than the TSMR-3 with a more holographic feeling.
Thanks for the reply! One more question: Would you say that the IT01s isolates on a similar level to the IT01 or does one edge out the other?
No problem. Glad to be of help. I would say similar!
Compared to Anew U1?
The U1 has a more punchy bass performance than the IT01s while the IT01s is more balanced and it has an edge in details and soundstage.
Compared to the bgvp dm6 ?
The IT01s has more punchy bass, clearer midrange, livelier treble & bigger soundstage.
