No and no.

"No" as in, it's entirely possible for an IEM to hiss while playing no file at all. Sibilance can only occur during the playback of a file.

Also "No" as in, fidelity isn't a quality dfkt cared to make part of his opinion. That's his decision to make so it can't be missing because you prefer for it to be included.

You seem to have a bug up your butt about the term fidelity. If you have a point to make, make it.

Some notes on the Soundmagic E10s that I got recently:
1. Wearing them upside down with the cable over the ear is a bit more fidgety but doable and has pretty much eliminated cable noise for me.
2. Maybe these have gotten a lot more sensitive lately? They definitely rival my old SE420s in that regard. Slight (but unobtrusive) hiss on the Clip+, annoying hiss on the FiiO E11. Last year's InnerFidelity measurements also showed 90 dB SPL @ 0.02 mW or 19 mV, indicating about 124 dB / 1 Vrms. And presumably that's at 1 kHz or something and would be higher in the bass. The Shures were nominally more sensitive but somewhat mid-centric, which tends to hurt full-spectrum sensitivity subjectively.

Otherwise I can more or less confirm what the table says. Sort of a bathtubby response with a good amount of bass and highs. Mids seem quite flat and uncolored, which is important to me as I'm thoroughly spoiled by full-size open cans. So not dead neutral but likable. I typically use them on trains and such, where bass is among the first things to be drowned out, so a bit more doesn't hurt. Details can still be picked up quite well, too.

I would much appreciate a larger image or repost of the original. Or perhaps info is past useful date.

Unfortunately that's not possible. That image is the property of the OP. As they have decided to stop sharing it and no longer frequent this site there's nothing that can be done to repost their property.

I didn't say that the image isn't available. I have a copy and could repost it if that were possible. I can't because it's dfkt's intellectual property and without his permission posting it again would violate the site policy against using copyrighted material without the owners permission.

I thought that's what u were hinting at. But really, is this jpg copyrighted? The fact he posted it up on ABI in a forum kinda suggested to me he wasn't really fussed about it being used etc.
