Took the words right out of my mouth.
The device they are introducing will the the Chord FRED (Frequency Response Enhancement Device). The world's first ultra high fidelity hearing aid / high end IEM in one.
I was in exactly the same boat as you. Not wanting to go ahead because my impedance adapter was doing the job in terms of totally eliminating hiss and they cost 1/5th the price of the IEMatch. The price here in Ausralia is terrible for the IEMatch as it obviously is for you. But all that said, swapping from an impedance adapter to the IEMatch is the best thing I've done sonically to my headphone setup since finally finding my "forever" IEM - the IE800. I'll never be happy...
 Well I have had it for 5 days now and I do have to say that yes, I am impressed. It is a lot better than an impedance adapter, at least in my situation of a Musical Fidelity M1 desktop amp powering my IE800 IEMs. I have found the ultra setting to be the best. At that setting, classical music with a very large dynamic range works with the volume control at around 11.00 o'clock (popular music around 9.00 o'clock) and there is no audible hiss whatsoever anymore - even with...
Hi,   These questions are partly directed to IFi themselves as well as anyone with specific experience with this product.   Firstly, I asked the question  below a little while back but it did not get any replies:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/824609/attenuator-for-ie800   Having read that thread above, would the IEMatch solution work for me? I am using a simple 300 ohm attenuator at the moment and although it definitely got rid of all the hiss completely (and the amp...
Hi,   I love my IE800 and Musical Fidelity M1 HPAP amplifier and have no desire whatsoever to change either of these components. Of course without any attenuation on the M1 headphone output, hiss is an issue when using the IE800.   Tonight I tried using an impedance adapter I purchased on eBay a few years back for my gaming rig - it is a "300 ohm" adapter sold by seller AWWAN on eBay. It's worked a treat in my gaming rig with my Shure SE215 since I bought it and sure...
Having suffered neck problems for 20 years I got to a point a few months ago where I could no longer use "proper" full sized headphones (though I still regularly use my PXC300 for working at my computer so very lightweight supra-aurals are still OK). So I undertook an extensive search for a good IEM. I finally chose the IE800 and after 6 weeks of ownership I remain incredibly impressed. Sound-wise I could go as far as to say it is beyond any significant criticism and that...
For sale is my classic Headphile headphone stand made in September 2010. It is signed underneath together with a blue-embossed authenticity sticker. I am only selling this because I have bought the new taller model that Larry makes for larger headphones such as the Audeze line.   This stand has been very well kept and has no damage, nicks, dents or scratches anywhere. There is a tiny bit of wear where the varnish has worn off the right hand side of front, round wooden...
Now sold. Thank you.
