Yet another minor dilemma in getting these earphones. I emailed John an address to deliver them to, then I get a reply from Art saying John's away and Art delivered it to my billing address.
So after a long ride home on the bus, I finally have them.
And what do I think, let's just say I am far from a satisfied customer.
I was expecting a nice fitting, nice looking pair of custom earphones.
What have I got, a pair of clear LiveWires that clearly look like someone has sanded/rubbed them down. You can see where it has been sanded etc.
As for the fit, slightly better than last time, but not as isolating as I expected. When they are in, with no music, I can hear myself type, but when the music is on, it's ok.
As for the sound, using the standard cable, the highs still pierce. But using a 50ohm cable, it's a bit more bearable.
I will continue using these more to see what I think, hard competition with the TF10, but so far liking them over the SF5's, a bit more natural and detailed.
