The best hybrid I've ever heard to date. 

 

 


I had the Miracles not the Mentors, so not exactly rolling in discretionary cash. In any case, after the Miracles, I'm a little wary of spending upwards of USD1000.

The DUNU DN2000s are out. But seems like they are pretty much the same situation as TF10 vs UE900. Better but different. And the difference is what is going to piss off the original fans. I wonder why they don't just split the line instead of supplanting the original with the new.

mind to tell us what source are you using now?

Sorry, do you mean for the UMs or the audio source?
post #9004 of 9008
Think you meant amp. I don't use one cos it is just too much to carry. Straight from the smartphone, which is an iPhone 5s.

Sometimes, I use the Sony SBH50 bluetooth receiver. I guess you can call that an amp.

Would actually be cool if Fiios came out with a high quality amp that includes a bluetooth receiver. Of course some fidelity will be lost in the chain, but I find the codecs are now good enough for the wireless transmission to be less of a bottleneck.

So I bought these EPEX10A as a silicontip for my triple fi 10 as someone recommended eariler, can't get them to fit. Both the large and medium sizes slip out and doesn't seal after 20 seconds. Any more recommendations that might be better? I use the large comply foam tips otherwise. But want silicon for gym/running.

 

Also any tips how to remove earwax that got in the actual IEM? It's not a lot but would be nice to clean out.

They come with a wax removal tool, it looks like a little strip of black plastic with a little metal hook.

Re: silicon tips for running, try Sennheiser double flanges.

They come with this bundle:
