Livewires - California Dreamin' - Page 78

Well i think you will be dissappointed when you keep seeing pictures of Livewires and their build quality, and will buy a pair anyway, so save money now, after all, its only $70, instead of $250 at a later date.

Although freqs will be in your mind constantly :P

Anway, im lucky, i dont have to have this trouble!

Yay, my Livewires are going to be sent out on Thursday. US Post Office EMI. How long do you think this will take? US --> UK.

Supermacro (On-loan) and interconnect is being shipped next tuesday,Another 4 rechargable batteries for the supermacro, to add to my 4 are being shipped out tomorrow,and last of all im being sent out on the 4th to France for a week, then a week of school after that!

Looking foward to doing my experiments with amps and lossy and lossless etc. Oh, and hearing the livewires!

1 week if you're lucky.
3-4 weeks if you have bad luck.
2 weeks on average I'd say.

Probably the latter, since many EU people are purchasing things from the US with the weak dollar, many packages that have to go through customs are delayed.

Into foreign customs <-- learn to dread these 3 words.

Seal is still not good, can hear stuff like keys jingling and trucks etc

Not on mine, to my ears. If anything, i'd be happy with a little more sparkle in the highs, but then i'm a Grado fanboy.

FMT - looking at your LW's, they seem a lot shallower than the other pictures I've seen. That being so, I think that there is no question that your seal simply isn't working out.

im pretty sure no one "loves freqs" and no one "hates livewires"

i for sure would go livewires because of their reputation, but because of their price and freq is a new company, i decided to try out something different.

I wasn't speaking in the literal sense but you'd be surprised at what floats around on the threads; it goes both ways...but that is just what happens with competing teams.
