The bad fit is recognized as....visible part of the shell...after i properly insert it in my ear...because i see part of shell visible at the "canal" portion of the monitor .
Should i contact John or the support team? through phone?
Is the right connector fully connected? Pull it off and clip it on again making sure it's fully connected, with the red tagged cable going to your right earpiece.

A "bad fit" is where, for whatever reason, you're not getting a good seal.

I received my LIVEWIRES today and after getting a first impression I'm already satisfied. I really like the sound, what amazed me the most is the quantity of details. Listening for the first time I felt the wow-effect which I always hope for when I use some new equipment.
What relieved me the most is that it seems I have no fitting problems which I kind of expected after all the postings about that sort of things. The isolation is unbelievable, for my usage maybe even too much. Even with no music playing, I can't hear a thing if somebody is standing right in front of me, talking. In the library where I had my LIVEWIRES inserted for about three hours today, this was pretty nice but in normal life!? We'll see...
Right now I still have some problems to get the left one out of my ear, but I guess this is caused because I'm just not as good with my left hand, compared to my right hand.
Moreover I realized how often I jiggle with my ears which doesen't really degrade the seal but which causes a kind of strange sound like water in my ears.
So much for so far!

Great news, floschu. I'm surprised by the level of isolation you're getting but all credit to you. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

I get that same level of isolation - enough that I could go shooting with them in, and that requires like 25db of isolation.

How is the Livewires bass? Is it like HD650/DT990/Atrio/Super.Fi/etc -- or is it like Ety/DT880/K701/q-Jays/etc?
post #939 of 3897
I've just received my LiveWires yesterday.
IMO, its bass sounds like upgraded ER4.
In fact, LiveWires is just like a fuller ER4 to me.
With the same clarity mids & highs,
but fuller yet not overwhelming bass.
Bass quality is that same as ER4, which means they are clean bass, with full feeling.

My LiveWires' picture is here:


They actually fit me very well without pain or unease:


This is truly a great IEM.


But I still got some complain about them.
Not for the phone itself, but for the service.
They didn't reply most of my E-mail inquiry.
I had to make international phone call to check the status of my LiveWires. (Since I'm from Taiwan.)
Even the shipment's tracking number was told me by phone.
They should use a more efficient E-mail service system.
It's seemed that their email system sometimes banned email from some of incoming mails -_-.

Anyway, their service with phone call is good still. So I'm content with it at least.

Congrats killkli and thanks for the clarifications comparing them to the ER4.

Congrats Chunyu!

You have a pair like mine. Very nice.

Burn them in, the bass detail and depth will increase, according to the quality of your source and recorded material. Enjoy!

They look totally different. Must be Kosmics flash?

I'm seriously gutted. Awaiting a reply from John about phone no. and serial no. swap, which i forgot to write on the form. And a few other questions.

Only sent them on Fri, so when i get a reply i should still have time to change my colours if it is like Killkli's.

Please respond guys!

Colourwise my Livewires are a close match to my ear photo. Killkli would need to say if his Livewires colour is a match to his photo or mine.
