IEM just arrived.
First impressions impressive - exquisite looks, clear and transparent sound, with excellent bass, good mid range and good treble. The boosted bass in the Land is the main reason for complementing my Fearless S8Zs (which I absolutely love) with these.
Compared to aforementioned S8Zs, I perceive these less “airy” in the mid range/treble, and the sub bass is thicker. These are less vocal forward, and better suited for slightly different genres of music than the S8Zs. I generally perceive the tuning of these a tad “darker” and a bit warmer than the S8Zs.
Some (of the few and very positive in their own right) online reviews of the Land have posted negative feedback on being too treble boosted and “sharp”. I do not concur, but then again I’m a mid range and treble person. These are likely less prone to fatiguing than the S8Zs.
If negatives need mentioning, the presentation and accessories to these are not as good as for the S8Zs. In fact I almost immediately exchanged the standard tips of the Lands with a spare pair of tips from my S8Z accessories.
The size of this IEM is not optimal for people with small cavum conchae and narrow ear canals.
Will try different tuning using the switches as I burn in the set. As of yet (and after only a few and short different tries) I have tentatively settled for either of 023 and 123.
