They are very busy at the moment, and really should sort themselves out, and get more people in. Small business + great product + high demand = growing problems!
Nice rig. You wont be spraying your Livewires stock gold connectors black then, or getting them to do it?
PS: Listening to mine now, 128k MP3 through a cheapo dac and dac's amp combo (cant be used just as amp through 3.5mm, USB only) bass is great, crisp and clear, great highs, they have dissapeared, cant feel em, cant hear my annoying sister, result! Worth the wait, seriously.
Shame i have a bad cold. So they dont sound great today, and i cant find a song i fancy
I ordered livewires in same colors as you have in your avatar and I will keep gold connectors as gold, so they would match the black side of earphones
Will post the pics as soon as they arrive. Hopefully they fit out of the box, otherwise sending them back and forth and waiting in between is not really what I am looking forward doing.
By the way, taking the impressions in San Francisco bay area was another adventure I had to undertake. The first one I got an appointment at was in San Jose. I called them and asked if they knew what "open mouth impressions" were. I had to mention Ultimate Ears, they also confirmed they knew them. I bet nobody knows Livewires yet, so I had to mention UE. When I arrived, they found out that there were out of silicon, so could not make them. I was upset and had to go back to the hotel. Payed $40 for taxi for nothing. Finally found one in San Mateo and was charged $120. I bet San Mateo is not the cheapest place in the US
Perhaps I should not have mentioned UE, because they said "hey we know UE, those guys charge like a 1000 dollars for the earphones!" I then thought I should have mentioned livewires instead
Finally after spending $160 just to make impressions and $300 for livewires, I hope they would fit. Of course if they don't, I will send them back for adjustments, but hell no, I don't want it.
P.S. UE refused to ship via anything but FedEx and also refused to mark down customs value, so no UE11 unless I go to the US again.
