 Just curious, where and for how much did you buy the X5 in Japan? o.oAlthough, I do sort of prefer the smooth circle than the rough one.
 I plan to go to the store again and see if I can try out the E12 to check any hissing with the HF5 and see how the bass boost works.To be honest, I dunno if I would ever get headphones/IEMs that would require such a (relatively, I assume) powerful amp to drive, mainly looking for the crossfeed and bass boost like you mentioned.Seems like the E12A would be a better fit for me in this case. In the mean time, I'm changing my plan of going with the bundle.I plan to get the X5...
Good to hear it works, I've never used a Sandisk SD card so was a bit worried.Ah, so I assume each click of tbe wheel moves the selection down one song. J don't think I'll have any trouble with the wheel then as long as it clicks.Good to hear about tbe battery since it is one of the reasons why I plan to switch from my J3 (dieing battery).Any complaints on the UI or does it even matter since there seem to be custom firmware where you can change the UI altogether?
Yea I've read a bit on the scroll wheel, how some people like the smooth one and others prefer the initial "rough" design (Japan edition). Does the wheel actually click when you turn it or is it a smooth rotation? Also, around how many hours of playback do you get per full charge? I see, I guess I'll get that card if I decide I need more than the 64GB that's included in the bundle. One question though: Is it better to get one large microSD card (64GB) or two smaller...
 I actually took a look at the E12 and E11k, noticed the curve on the E11k and thought "Wouldn't this make it a bit difficult to strap onto the player?". The E12 on the other hand was nice and smooth, really liked the overall look and feel of it. Most pictures I've seen have the X5 strapped to the E12, so they do seem to match in size.Do you think the HF5, M50, or M80s would be affected by the channel imbalances?  I see, really wish I could put some of my tracks in a X5...
 I see, thanks for the advice on EQ. Most of my music is 320k, so hopefully its good enough. My J3 seems to handle it very well, although I do have some custom EQ settings.I found this deal on amazon that is pretty much a bundle of all the things I want (was looking to get a 64GB card as well) + a leather case. I'm going to search around the prices for each individual piece in both Japan and America, then decide what's the cheapest/most efficient option. Still sort of...
 Ah, I guess that's also an option. I just dunno how difficult it will be to find a J3 battery since they are out of production =x I see, my first change will be the X5 then. I was looking at amps also because the X5 seems to have a case dedicated for strapping amps to it, and it looks pretty nice as well. I'll get an amp if I get any cans that require more power.I used the triple flange tips before I got the ACS and they did penetrate pretty far and isolated decently, but...
Hey all, been a while since I posted, I have been relatively satisfied with the gear I currently own. However, I think it's time for another upgrade(?): My Cowon J3 is somewhat dieing.   The battery indicator is inaccurate at times (1 bar would last me hours sometimes, 3 bars would last me 30 minutes sometimes), and I have noticed a substantial decrease in overall battery life. I have been using it for around 3~4 years now, almost daily. I definitely still love my J3,...
Ok, so here’s my story (slightly long). I bought the HF5s this summer and have loved how they sound. However, I could not get a good seal in the right ear unless I moved it every 10 minutes or so no matter what tips I used (stock tips, Klipsch, foams). I stopped using them frequently because it got annoying. I then remembered that ACS offered custom sleeves for the HF5s so I did a bit of research and decided to give them a shot.   I first used the Etymotic audiologist...
Hello guys, just wondering if any ACS custom users got the full shells? I've only seen pictures of canal tips used for the HF5, but I was told by an ACS representative that full shells were also an option. I got the audiologist, price, and color down, but want to know if I should go full shell or canal. Also, if any HF5/ACS users could help me out in my thread in the questions section, that would be great as well~ http://www.head-fi.org/t/680185/custom-acs-tips-maybe-amp
