Maybe you got your order in before Team Clear Blue was no more!

You can always email to double check.

So a bigger, better result for Team Blue/Red/Black!

I'm thinking that maybe the blue faceplate will just be a darker blue, or even a clearish-blue

Oh, shame, i loved Killkilli's, although the dark shade was the light of the photo, not actually like that. Now it is

That will be my re-case colour, in about a year i guess....

How about a peli case?

Pelicans seem to be a hit around here. I reccommend a best skin ever for the source, cheap, very hard to scratch, less finger prints, easy to remove to reveal a new looking surface underneath, and hides scratches there previously.

Kosmic, wow that bass track on my low volume (very low, always worry about my hearing, dont know what is a safe level really, any advice? I sure am not damadging my hearing as much as the leaking max volume ibud users do, although i hear a high pitched constant sine when the room is very quiet, eg bed.) But man the bass made my ears feel like they were vibrating. 3.50 is madddddd! This was winamp on laptop, amped, alo silver plated copper ic.

Will try without amp.

Still like Jamiri though, as there are lyrics too!

Man red hot chillies sound so much more enjoyable now. Death of a Martian makes my feet tap most.

I love theese, music is even more enjoyable wih some bass when valled for, and warmth.

So happy, they sound very good, lossy.

Careful control of the volume will not only save your ears, but will give you a better listening experience.

It doesn't take much to drive Livewires, and with a good seal you won't need to use high volume to achieve a full sound.

One of the tests of good Hi Fi, was that you could carry a conversation on with someone while listening to a full dynamic sound, without being drowned out by the speakers. Also a little known secret was that a key to getting "air" around vocalists was to get quality sub bass (Rel subwoofers...*sigh*).

Livewires have oodles of quality bass, and with the bass test I posted, you don't have to play it loud to see what the Livewires are capable of.

Most of the time our listening levels are higher than they need to be. I usually turn my volume up from low until the soundstage expands and becomes full. You may have to adjust from album to album also.

A full, energetic sound doesn't mean loud with Livewires. This is the point you could be tempted to turn the volume up further, until your ears bleed, but it's not needed.

If you are experiencing any feeling of stress while listening, turn your volume down. In fact subconciously your body will relax, when your ears are not subjected to damaging volume, and that allows you to get into the groove, and enjoy the music.

so you should be able to carry out a conversation while listening to your livewires and that is a safe sound? sounds very hard to do.

Yes i never know what a "safe" volume is..... ugg

Lol! No, I meant home hi fi..speakers etc. I knew I would confuse someone. The point I think I was trying to make is that you can have a full dimensional, dynamic sound without having to listen at highly damaging decibels.

When listening through your Livewires you adjust the volume until you reach a full soundstage. If you stop at this point the volume won't be at damaging level.

The trick is to find this balance, and not to increase the volume further. Louder is not better SQ wise from this point on, but it can be damaging to your hearing if you increase it.

haha yeah i didn't think that was right. Cuz i just had earplugs in and I was trying to hear stuff and I was like... i can't hear anything. I know sounds stupid. (i was vacumming my house)

how do you know when you have reached a full soundstage?

You're using iPod 5th gen?
I've just tried it on my local Apple Shop. (iPod Classic)
And I found that the LOWEST sound level is the OK volume with LW.
You can go a step or two higher (only one or two, no more), but the louder volume isn't really necessary.
