Livewires - California Dreamin' - Page 146

I'd wait until more solid reviews come out as well but the 10% discount is just too tempting. Unless some more people do reviews in the coming week.

Does anybody else want to help me encourage EarPeace to introduce a triple driver model?

They should have something to compete with the onslaught of triple drivers in the market right now. A triple driver LiveWires from EarPeace would stir things up some more. At first I wasn't a fan of the rotating coaxial connector but I think it's actually quite innovative and something that EarPeace's competitors haven't really pushed.

Regardless of the rotating connector, if they want to stop losing customers to Freqonline, they should refresh their 2-driver model and introduce a 3-driver model as well.

I diasagree, from what i have read if i remember correctly, it is a sole decision between the two, sound wise, its about what you like, and are seeking.

Also livewires had better build quality than the 2 driver old Freq.

We will see what the music makers line are like.

A 3 driver livewire with MORE colour options would be awesome.

I wont be buying freq's ever though, and could never afford any earphones this expensive, however if i do ever have the money to upgrade, i would go for livewires as they deserve my business after giving me a complimentary pair at 14 (now 15).

If the prices are the same, i will be loyal, and upgrade my lvewires to their newer model, but not for a few years, if ever.

I may just keep recasing. I want these forever, so lets hope Earpeace live on for 10 years plus, as i will need recases (im young and my ear canals change faster.) and may at the latter end of the timescale go for an upgrade.

The number of drivers is completely irrelevant. You can easily have a single armature IEM beating a dual armature earphone. Like for example Sleek-Audio SA6 vs. Westone UM2. You cannot say one is better than the other just based on the number of armatures they house.

Impressions sent! The waiting begins. I'm pretty escited, I always thought custom IEMs like these were like, a grand. Never had I thought I would be owning a pair.

i Totally agree with you! Matt.
I will do the same myself in terms of purchasing new products from LiveWires.
Though their turn-around time can be REALLY slow...i hope they'll improve on that. Other then this! Their Customer Service and their product's quality is just GREAT!

I have absolutely no compulsion whatsoever to try any freQs! Whereas I would love to hear the livewires!

I'm sure you'll be happy with what you're gonna get in return, when the LiveWires arrives.

Was poking around in the FreQ thread... are the LW made out of the same material as the FreQ? I was under the impression that the LW had some "flex", ie. they are not made of hard acrylic. Is this the case?
post #2189 of 3897
LW=acrylic, same as freqs. They are, however, very well and sturdy made imho

At least from reading all of the IEM reviews here in the forums in the last 6+ months, even the highly respected Etymotics ER-4 (single driver) don't have the complete sound reproduction, balance, and good/deep bass than the good 3-4 drivers from Ultimate Ears (UE10 and UE11). Many also prefer the more complete representation of the also highly regarded Livewires (2-drivers). So there has to be some validity to having more than one driver, again, assuming these are quality products.

In my own experience, even within the same product line, the 3-driver UE Triple.Fi sounds better and more balanced than the 2-driver Super.Fi 5 Pro. When I compare my new SuperFreQs (3 driver) to either one of these, only the Triple.Fi sounds closer to the SuperFreQs. So calling the number of drivers "irrelevant" has not been my experience at all. I do agree with you that the number of drivers should not be the only differentiator in a purchase of a good/quality IEM.
