Five perfectly matched drivers per ear create an incredibly wide frequency response in our StageDiver 5, with rich bass, powerful midrange and clear, crisp highs. The SD5 remains neutral and gives perfect control to every musician on stage and in the studio. Owing to the richness of details provided, the StageDiver 5 sound experience is ultimately addictive.
The InEar StageDiver 5 has a warm W-signature, a tuning that is basically a V-shape but with a better-compensated midrange. The SD-5 has strong bass and balanced highs but the midrange hardly sounds recessed.
The bass curve is homogenous and sounds very natural with no particular accentuation on sub-bass or upper bass.
The midrange has a slightly warm touch in the lower regions from minimal bleeding of the bass.Less enjoyable information like crunchy or edgy guitars is smoothed out and receives a more lush and juicy signature.
The high frequencies are boosted with a single broad bump at 7-8 kHz. Luckily, the SD-5 does not show the usual ups and downs that even many TOTL IEMs show in the highs, which creates a very realistic tonality. The midrange and highs are contrasted with just a minor dip which helps ‘S-tones’ to remain wonderfully smooth.
