Anyone else thinking about these? I'm hesitant to drop $150/$220 on something like hifi headphones without knowing the quality or sound signature, and waiting until April might be a long wait. But the tech and allure of dual-driver CIEMs is pretty tempting. And the new charging case is pretty nifty.   Most expensive phones I've purchased were Shure 840s, and paying in that range for an unknown isn't comfortable to me.
Very nice review. I'm glad to see that Thinksound didn't disappoint with the On1 (not that I ever thought they would). I love that it sounds like they keep the nice balance of accuracy and warmth that the ms01s pulled off, and the "chameleonic" nature sounds perfect.    As a long-time fan from Rains to ms01s, I almost have a bit of buyer's remorse for getting impatient and jumping on some Shure SRH-840s (don't get me wrong, I love them), but now I'll just have reason to...
Exciting stuff. Looking forward to hearing your impressions. I don't doubt that I'll cave and pick some of these up in the future, but probably not any time soon.
Earlier this spring, Stereophile released an article saying that Thinksound was working on a set of on-ear headphones. I got an email from Thinksound today announcing they're now on sale. The On1 headphones look pretty gorgeous in my opinion, but I'm also partial to the wood design. I'm a longtime ms01 user, and I've been a huge fan of the Thinksound company ever since Aaron Fournier contacted me on these forums directly in response to a warranty issue that wasn't even the...
Okay, so I was just browsing around and looking for deals on the various phones mentioned here, and I saw a listing for the SRH840s on eBay for $165 or best offer. Since they're usually listed for $199 anywhere else I looked, I thought why not try. So I put in an offer of $130, expecting it to work like a bid where it sits for awhile and then they let me know if I was out-offered. Instead, it immediately said that my offer was accepted and I was prompted to pay. So I...
Thanks for the recommendation. The 840s were definitely on my radar, I'll check out the HD439 as well.   Also, any other opinions would be great. 
Hi all, this is largely a replication of a post I made earlier this year before the change in format that moved the help threads to this board. I ended up just repurchasing a set of Thinksound ms01s at that time, which are still going great for me, but I still find myself wanting a set of over-ears because, well, I'm a gadget addict.    For the longest time, I've only bought IEMs. The reason for this is that they're small, easy to carry, and tend to be the most...
I suppose this is primarily about the x10s, since my last pair of (deceased by way of new dog...) IEMs were MS01s, and coincidentally, I thought they were pretty perfect for the price. I actually just made a thread over on the full-size forum a couple of days ago asking about something with a similar sound signature in the full-size category, only to have Thinksound's CEO tell me that they'll be releasing supra aural and circumaural headphones throughout the year. So, I...
Just as Thinksound Aaron Fournier informed me a couple of days ago, Sterophile has an early preview of Thinksound's new full-size headphones. For those unfamiliar with Thinksound, they make a range of IEMs that have been very favorably reviewed, including by several Head-Fi members on the IEM board. They're especially known for having a warm-but-still-accurate sound, with the monitor-series MS01s leading the way. Here is Stereophile's brief article, most notable for the...
Thanks a bunch, Mr. Fournier. I'll have to wait a bit to check out the sneak peak. Also, I'll see if I can't find what's left of the MS01s, that would be really awesome of you guys. Makes me happy to be the top review on the MS01s on Amazon, : )
