First impression

This time, I checked the first impression using the white silicon M size in the standard ear tip.

 

Very delicate but slightly thin, vocals are husky and easily hoarse(AKINO×AKINO「月明かりのMonologue」)

You might think that the melody of an acoustic guitar is so delicate that the graininess is incredibly beautiful. However, the violin sound is not thick enough, and it may be divided into tastes because it is quite thin, is slender and easy to hear hysterically.

 

The cleanliness around the vocals is high, and I think you can hear the vocals clearly even if the volume is low. However, the body is thin, a little husky, and maybe overall it may seem faint. The low range is deep, and you can feel a wide range, but the sound is not full, and you'll hear it's quite squished in the midrange.

 

You may get the unnatural impression that the sound is pulled a little in the high frequency direction.

 

Sharp, clear, speedy rock sound(鈴木克崇「 決戦 FFRK Ver. arrange from FFVI」)

There is a deep bass tone, and this song feels warm. The hi-hat is delicate and the snare is heard by the snappy, giving a sense of speed. If you want to listen to a so-called metal type rock with a sense of speed, I think this earphone can be quite attractive. The edge of the electric guitar is also fine, the distortion is a little flashy, and it sounds bright and fun.

 

However, there is not much profoundness, and the sound is slightly slender overall.

 

Light rhythm, bright transparency(fhána「ユーレカ」)

The rhythm line in the high range has the impression of being delicately decomposed, and I think that the wind instrument feels a lot of overtones. Vocals are a bit slender with emphasis on consonants and may sound a little hysterically stretched up on a husky. The vocals are a little backward, but the vocal is rather rational and natural, and the body feels a little, so it may not be so harsh, but I feel that it is a bit gritty.

 

The mid-to-high range is relatively calm, so you may not feel the peak feeling as bright as it looks, but you may still feel the consonants are sharp or jerky, so you may feel restless.

 

Momentary delicate sound(富田美憂「Present Moment」)

Present Moment

Present Moment

In this song, the consonants of vocals tend to be hiss. The sound field is clean in the midrange and has a strong sense of rising, with sound coming out above. The snare rhythm is light and fast, and the strings sound a little hysterical. The sound field is dry and doesn't feel very moist. The more you get used to it, the more it will calm down, but I feel that it has a slightly gritty atmosphere.

 

However, the electrostatic particles are good, and I think it will be welcomed by listeners who value such delicacy.

Summary

For those who like the warm sound of the Tri i3 and Tri i4, it's an analytical sound in a different direction, and you might be surprised at the extreme change in tone quality. It's the current flagship model of the Tri, but it's clearly different from the sounds of the Tri so far. It seems that the bright sound using the electrostatic type, which emphasizes the resolution considerably, still has different tastes.
