Just reporting that yesterday I received the Starlight Fitear cable I ordered. It's been two months, but thankfully have it now and it gives a nice sonic bump to the Parterre which is nice. The wait was a bit much though! Still, the cable is very high quality work.
Thanks, I hope so too. I have a copper IEM cable, and an interconnect, from several years back and they are the best sounding cables I've had... I've written this order off though, as it's just been so long without any replies to my emails asking what's up. It's very weird, and frustrating.
Up for sale is my pair of ASG-2.5. I am the second owner of this pair. It is in excellent condition, both cosmetically and sonically. I did have the right dynamic driver go out, but it has been replaced by Aurisonics and is now sounding perfect and factory new. All accessories and packaging is included.

Just got my 1 Plus today.... and am getting a feel for its sound. I immediately put on an upgrade cable I have around, and with that plus Ortofon tips, the soundstaging is insane! Initial impressions are that it's a fantastic phone which gives my Parterre a run for the money. Will update with more observations as I get more accustomed to the signature.
Some early impressions even before the big dynamic driver has loosened up:
The Nocturnal Audio Hybrid

> 3 cables: standard, hybrid silver & copper, 8 strand copper high end
> Otterbox-type case
The Nocturnal has a faux carbon finish on the faceplate, like it's trying to emulate the Tralucent earphones. Similarly the earphone body shape and size is very reminiscent of it too (so I’ll just come out right here and say it-- most of the IEM reminded me of the Ref.1 I...
