(with AMB Mini3 or Ibasso D2, the two AMP I currently got.
Or mounted with a DIY CS43122 DAC with TUBE buffer.)

So, mostly I'd compare the sound stage of IEM with IEM.
For this matter, I think SuperFreQ got the same width as Livewires but with a little more depth.
The difference in quite small though.
That makes me wonder how people can say that the UE11s are better (soundstage and airiness-wise) than comparably priced full-sized headphones. Is it possible that UEs are THAT much better than LWs and FreQs? I can't see how anyone can make little drivers in your head sound like full-sized closed headphones, let alone an open ones.

No matter how good my FreQ sound is, I still think my HD580s are better in every aspect.

thats great.

Where are the PICTURES!!!! we need pictures.

SuperFreQ's will be pretty dangerous once they work on their build quality/Cs....

WIth the music makers line, atleast they will have detachable cables so thats good.

If the music makers line comes out at the same price point, I think it would be a great deal for the detachable cable. However, if there is an increase in price, I am not sure how that would go over, as the visual quality has been subpar due to the hand made process. I dunno..

yeah the instructions said open and closed, and my audiologist demanded she did two sets open and closed. I dont know which they used, but they fit damn nice.

Ears are a bit sore now though. In and out too many times.

I will update in a few days, although maybe tomorrow.

So fit wise, do you want them to loosen when you smile or open your mouth? or do you want it tight when you do all of the above?

yeah with the new music makers like cost is going to be up their at $300 - $350... and yeah that handmade process isn't the cleanest.
post #1417 of 3897
Heres some eyecandy, in this thread. I will take some better ones, and up them soon.

No, fit wise thet are fine, but the seal breaks big time when i smile. They open enough to ease them out easier. Hey, you could look wierd pulling funny wonky smiles, but hey handsfree!

Ok, i couldnt give my ears a rest, guess what, i have them back in!

They sound just as good with my lossy files straight out of the headphone jack of my zen. Just slightly more audible hiss at very low volumes.

well is that supposed to happen if you have a proper seal? just wondering....

Nice pictures, how do you think the paint job on the connector was done overall??? doesn't look too bad in the pics..
post #1421 of 3897
No its not too bad actually. If you see other pics you will see a name on the top of the connector, imprinted/pressed in, but with mine, you cannot see it at all, so i think it was sprayed. When the connectors touch together i think it will slooooowly wear off/chip, but i will spary it when that happens.

I dont know about the seal thing. I guess though. I just feel them move, and the seal decrease a bit, no huge ear suction!

Huge smile though. Small-ish makes them move slightly, nothing major.

FMT, you will LOVE these i think, although i havnt heard the TF10P. Persevere with it man, you will love em.

Awesome Baines, hope you are enjoying em, more pics

Audiologist emailed me:

Hi Jainash



Apologies for not responding to your email sooner. From the way you’ve described it, I don’t think there is an issue with the fit of the earphones / impressions, although
I would obviously need to see them to be sure. If the seal was inferior, potentially you would have “leaking” of the high frequencies. If they are too sharp to the point of pain, then this is related to the output of the earphones themselves.





Whilst in the clinic we do have a type of “analyzer” (it’s called an insertion gain machine) , used in the programming of hearing aids, I’m not sure it’s function translates to measuring the output of earphones. The difference is that hearing aids have a microphone and amplify a particular sound source (calibrated) for which the output is then measured in the ear canal.



There’s no problem organizing a baseline hearing test, contact Fiona (9650 6426) to arrange a convenient time.



I hope this information helps,



Natasha


I am seeing her next Monday so yay!


I got a Xin SuperMicro-IV and wow, fantastic amp!

Hey FMT best of luck to you.
Where'd you score the SuperMicroIV?
