Sold!
I priced them low since I'm charging extra for shipping and I just want to get rid of them. They are actually balanced, and they discuss that in their update from almost a month ago (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/geek-wave-a-no-compromise-portable-music-player#/updates). They also said they would "provide" an adapter, but in my email to them after receiving my pair they clarified they meant "provide if you pay us extra", and I'm not nearly interested enough in these...
I've got a pair of the IEM-X that were sold in the Geek Wave crowdfunding. Unfortunately, when I pledged for them I thought "balanced" meant armature, not electronically, and they didn't provide an adapter to use with unbalanced outputs. Unfortunately, I don't own anything with a balanced output, so these are pretty much useless to me.   I'll ship wherever as long as you cover shipping. I'll give you a quote if you tell me where to send it.
No longer for sale.   I've got a FiiO X3 that I bought more as a DAC than a portable player. I still use it as a portable player, but I bought a Modi 2 Uber, which has replaced it as a DAC, leaving me with it just as a portable player.   It's not in bad condition, but the Line Out jack doesn't work anymore. I don't imagine it would be a hard fix, but I'm not inclined to open it up and solder on a new one myself. Other than that, some scratches on the screen is really...
 My guess is that it is optical and would be activated if I plugged an adapter into it. I'll probably just see if I can find an inexoensive mini-toslink adapter to plug in. 
It's right next to the headphone jack, so it's more of a case of accidentally plugging the headphones in. There's no response from the computer or the headphones when I do it though, which suggests to me that it is in fact optical.   I believe I've also tried it with a 3.5mm to RCA coaxial cable, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't think I got any response from the computer when I did so, though, but I don't have any equipment to test it on anyway. The only response I could...
I have a Lenovo Y50, and I'd like to be able to use its S/PDIF port. I have no idea if it's optical or coaxial though, and I'm having trouble finding any way to determine which it is. It's a regular 3.5mm jack, but the laptop doesn't recognize anything that I have that's plugged in to it (read: it's right next to the headphone jack). There's no visible light coming from it, but the light might only turn on , and I don't have an adapter to try. I'd rather not buy an adapter...
 That would probably convince me not to buy from either LMYE or VSONIC again, honestly. 
Well, preordered one of each as soon as they went on sale. I've been wanting some new IEMs, and getting 4 pairs of VSONIC IEMs for $95 CAD is a pretty good deal to me. We'll see how they are (maybe I'll review them).
To the best of my knowledge, Ety does their custom sleeves like this:   1. You purchase the IEMs themselves through an authorized retailer. 2. You register on the custom sleeve website and reference where you purchased your IEMs. 3. You pay for the custom sleeves. 3. You visit one of Etymotic's network audiologists and get impressions done. The audiologist will send the impressions to Ety, Ety will make the sleeves and send them to you.   So if you can't find a...
