Livewires - California Dreamin' - Page 117

post #1741 of 3897
can someone look inside their Livewires and confirm that their is no white cottony stringy stuff? Here is a picture, you can't see; it very well though. Im not sure if it protects the tube that comes from the driver or what.

Pics (its easier to see with the red one)





THANKS GUYS FOR THE HELP. for the head tilting back thing yeah its probably the fluid in my ear. uggg

Elluzion, i'm sure there's nothing when you look into the tube that leads to your drivers. i even used a Flashlight to take a closer look.
So i think you better contact EarPeace and tell them about it...and fix the problem...and you might wana talk to them about the fit too , if it's not caused by your congested ear canal.

Thanks for clearing that up. It is very odd. Yeah I am going to wait until my cold is over with until I get the fit situation taken care of and see what I "need" done. If that cotton stuff isn't supposed to be there I will definitely have to end up sending it back.

Here's an interesting post Can armatures burn in?

If you follow the thread you'll find more than one armature owners agreeing.
I'm just looking at it physically. Anecdotal accounts of people saying it changed after so long aren't reliable. I'm sure if you look at a cable discussion thread many people will agree that cables improve with burn in, but that's still nonsense.

Anyway, I don't want to derail this thread with this discussion, so people can do whatever they want.

For what it's worth, I'm considering getting Livewires.

Well, this thread is basically 175 pages of that statement every other post, so I should hope it's true by now.

The only armatures that benefitted from burn-in for me personally was a pair of ER6i that were shrill and grainy and smoothed out with 75-150 hours of burn-in, and my first pair of Super.fi 5 Pro which sounded like a "farty" bass driver in both ears, which cleared up at about the 12 hour mark of burn-in.

None of my Shures or Livewires, nor my second pair of Super.fi 5 Pri or Triple.fi 10 Pro needed burn-in.

Elluzion , i hope you'll get your problem figure out soon. Then you get to enjoy your LiveWires fully. It's truly an amazing set of IEM at a reasonable price! Hope you get your problem fixed soon, and keep us updated.

Oh I don't even have to drop off impressions, because John Diles will do them for you himself for free for any customer who walks in.

One of the many perks of living in the bay area.

Yes i hope it gets fixed also. I am going to call earpeace about the foam cotton white stuff in the tubes, it bugs me a little. And also I will have to check the fix once my cold is over with.

I wonder if they have to put cotton in there to keep glue out of the sound tubes, and then it just didn't all get removed by accident when it came time to finish them.

@ neofufo51 : LUCKY! :-D
@Elluzion : I feel a lot worse for FMT who lives in australia and is having fit issues. Your shipping is one day, his seems to take forever!!! Mine takes three-five and I'm goin nuts!

Also, this is a bit of a sidenot, but damn you headfi! At first I came here looking to spend ~$150 for something that isolates, I ended up goin for the livewires, and NOW I find myself looking for a high end pair of closed cans which I probably won't be able to afford unless i liquidate my new car fund. AHH

So quick question, how DOES the sound of the livewires compare to a good set of closed cans, i.e. Beyers or Ultrasone (I have no experience with any cans except Grado SR60 but i'm just curious)
post #1755 of 3897
It's like an APureSound v3 re-cabled Grado RS-2
