Cletus Bocephust: Ken Ball Monkeywire ExtraordinaireBoosting my portable audio experience several degrees, I got inspired to email Ken after near zero-time shipping and response:
Got the bling and hooked up. I didn't expect to discover that you also installed a miniature battery and Class A amplifier with the connect, thanks. I had to turn down my Hornet to nearly zero, and my UE-10PRO's were still quasi-too loud. So, for $49, you also saved me many batteries and charges for both the Ipod and the Hornet, besides the promised and delivered audiophile excellence out of that one-time-but-no-longer seemingly portable toy. This is the elusive Isle of Porta-Ports O'Nirvana where ear fatigue and stress related to more awkward setups (and I have tried a few, ha) take a backseat to the cool breeze of pleasant sonic enjoyment that won't be taken away by bad design and build quality. I am trying to think of a more useful and satisfying product that I could drop fifty bucks on that would deliver as much personal portable sonic satisfaction and ease as this little major upgrade, and I find that I could honestly use some help with that one. Any takers?
I also requested a special order product, not yet invented, of which Ken, undaunted, immediately set out the plans for... At these prices and quality components, better he invent the wheel than my blundering trials and errors.
Thanks Ken, you are a gem--pendles
