Definitely. Mine came out to just short of $70 with shipping.I don't subscribe too heavily to the idea that headphone cables drastically change sound but the ergonomics of this cable appear ideal. My only concern at this point is durability but at $70 it's not that much more than a stock cable so definitely worth a try.
Ah, was hoping it was a simple fix. Sorry.I just placed my order for a 2Pin BaX. For the record, the US distributor does PayPal, if you ask. Looking forward to trying it out as every cable I've bought so far has either had build issues or ergonomic ones (I really dislike guide wires and normally the plugs stick out so far they press against my cheekbones and ruin the fit unless I push them way out).
Out of curiosity, did you double-check the fit? I know in my own experience that every time I switch a cable it effects the fit of my CIEMs pretty significantly and given how low a margin for error there is with the fit of customs it can really effect the sound.
Not gonna happen, then?
I have a Heir Audio 8.A and I've been switching between a Magnus and a different custom cable for a while... Honestly I'm not a fan of either. Not because of sound but because of ergonomics. The custom cable doesn't have the memory wire, which I like, but the plugs on the CIEM stick out really, really far. Because of this they push up against my cheekbones and I have to actually flex them outwards in order to use them, which is terrible. Honestly, what I almost want is a...
1,028 day resurrection. Nice.
That's because you're cheating. Noble Audio (you) makes beautiful headphones. But I wouldn't call you guys the norm.
It's not so difficult with a good audiologist. From what I can tell, the problem most people run into when it comes to fit is they go to someone who doesn't know how to do impressions for customs or their options are generally limited. If you have a good audiologist and the people making the CIEMs are good then fit is a lot less dicey. You get what you pay for.
The benefits of a custom IEM over a 'universal' IEM, as I see them, aren't always just about sound. Customs, on their own, are rather beautiful, and you can take ownership of that beauty by choosing colors and other options, which is a bit harder on a universal. There's also the fact that a universal, by it's very nature, is designed to work with a wide range of people where a custom IEM is designed to work for you. That means a better, more comfortable fit which in turn...
No problem! Out of curiosity, what are you going to use to drive it? Just straight out of an iPhone/computer or are you going to go AMP?If you're still on the market, I've got my 8.A's (and before that my 4.A's) going out from a Leckerton UHA-6s Mk.II:http://www.leckertonaudio.com/products/uha-6s-mkiiIt's a wonderful little amp, very neutral. Absolutely silent noise floor. The benefit of an AMP on something of this level is it really makes everything run at full, as good...
