I filed a complaint through PayPal, and is it seems he didn't respond to their request, I received a refund. That makes /me happy.

Well, it's a bit too late for me to do that. If I get a refund I'll take my kids to Baskin Robins for ice cream.

Fidelity released Quads. Fidelity Triples were terrible for me, so I wish there was upgrade-from-triples-to-quads program...

I have fidelity triples and they're amazing. If you look through the reviews (long enough) you'll see some comparing their sound to the ES3X.
I find them ruler-flat; for some they may seem bass light with little sparkle. If the recording is well engineered/mastered then you hear all the goodness. If the recording isn't great and isn't mastered great then it will sound that way.
It would be interesting to compare the triples to the quads.
one thing I would say though is that it took me a long time to get used to the sound (combination of brain burn-in and the trips burning in). But now all is well. Good soundstage (accurate), flat response, easy to drive (obviously) and sound great out of the iPhone 4.
While I know some people like Fidelity Triples' sound, my honest impression for them is quite negative as vii_haven's review. I had used them for hundreds of hours with several sources but LiveWires T1 are always better. Anyway, this may be a matter of taste.
Quads are interesting - 4way crossover, woofer and $589. Looking forward to someone's review.
Hi everyone i'm new to here I just ordered my T1 at Jaben singapore on 30 april 2011 with impresion made I ordered it all clear. i would like to know what colour cable choice did you all get. i heard that the clear seems to have oxidising after afew months use.What are the material they use to cover for the clear cable.On their website they stated braided.So what did you guys get for the stock cable.I already email them LIvewires yesterday without consulting Jaben first for the changes of the cable colour. what you guys get for the cable colour and material is it braided or rubber like.

what are the cables,is it stock cables?what are they made of exactly.
Looks like all the old-timers are AFK or gone...
Kosmic, I really have to thank you for your push-up technique. I'm not entirely sure if it works exactly your way (pushing once to break the seal), but what I did was push it to break the seal, finish a conversation (like with a store cashier), release, and ahh, the music is back.
I'm not sure if I have the "feet tapping" going yet but it does nearly make me want to swoon. Of course, maybe to have the LW's do simply everything (like making me cry buckets over Faye Wong's and Namie Amuro's vocals) would be pushing it.
But, it definitely has the resolving power of Hubble...after its spoilt lens got replaced
It is very scary to have more than 2 instruments to pop out of nowhere in a song you thought you knew (like in Savage Garden's "To The Moon And Back" which definitely adds to the swooning. The rhythmic plucking of a guitar (think it's bass guitar) throughout the duration, and everything sounding so (sur)real...
Verdict - THEY ROCK!
And a few pictures :
Sorry about the bad pictures...
