I really like the colour of your iems Crazyguy106, i hope i will get the same. What did you write in the order? Just blue?

J, I continue to hear what I wrote about earlier. Except for the occasional piece where there is actual air movement in the low-to-mid bass registers, where the HD800 driver alignment seems to work as intended, the 13s exceed the 800s in every respect: comfort [the 800s are comfortable for me, BTW], vertical, horizontal, and depth soundstage, clarity, detail, instrument location accuracy & stability, resolution. And of course, the musicality. I haven't found a piece of music overall that does not sound better with the 13s.

By way of other comparison, I truly enjoyed my LiveWires; they were much more enjoyable than my Westone 3s, and I ascribed a lot of that to the excellent fit. But the HD800s, one-on-one, are quite a bit better than the LiveWires, especially in the bass, and the high/mid balance. Better soundstage, better dynamics at higher volumes. And compared to my balanced HD600, they were quite a step up; but in the 13s, they have more than met their match. And my LWs are great to pack as a backup and good for the bedside.

Seriously, I enjoy the 800s, and they are easier to use at my desktop rig, because of the length of the cord, and the ability to pop them on and off quickly. But I am re-thinking whether to spend any more money on them in balanced cables [I'll probably still get the Blue Dragon, but probably not the Double Helix or Equinox]. They are good for how I use them. But now, I am thinking of another pair of 13s, so I can have one with me always, and having a balanced cable built so I can have them plugged into my Apache at work full-time.

So i keep hearing how wonderful the 13s are, and its making me want to empty my wallet the more i read. How are they with bass reproduction and strength? I currently own Denon D7000, and I really like the bass response and overall sound signature that they have. For someone who listens to primarily dance/electronica, likes pretty rich BASS, and is looking for the absolute best in custom IEMs, would these be recommended?

Also how do they hold up while running/working out?

That's right, I forgot, sorry. Ok, well with more time your impressions haven't changed.

A second pair, and I thought maybe I was a little off. I am thinking of that also as I travel and if something happened to one pair, I would want a back up. I wonder how the 11 sound?

I bike with mine, though I shouldn't and they work GREAT. I don't bike often with them and am extra observant but it isn't a smart thing to do but what sound.

The bass? It eats every phone I have alive. Solid, tight, deep and with total quality.

I was wondering the same. Difficult to go back to any other bottle in the cellar, though.

Thats awesome. I love that bass. I always have this fear that my ears will fill with sweat or something and f*** up the electronics inside my IEMs. I would probably kill myself if something like that happened to a set of $1100 IEMs. LOL. Is a scenario like the 13s being damaged by excessive sweating a probability? Once you send the impressions out, how long does it take for them to arrive?

Exactly. What sound. The bike is good, yes, dangerous, but still sweet; for me, at night, in the Lotus, the combination of the wind on the face, the isolation and the music, while perhaps not legal, it is ethereal.

Years ago I was driving a car I still have, my Mitsubishi all wheel drive turbo (and after 19 years it still looks almost new and does have a new engine and goes like new again, anyway) and I had a small in the ear Sony headset on and almost hit a kid because I had sensory overload and wasn't as tuned as I should have been. It still haunts me and nothing happened but if it had. . .

But yes, if in a totally, totally safe place, if that exists, it would be fun.

It does not appear to be a problem and frankly, you don't really sweat inside your ear. I spoke with Jerry about this maybe a week and a half ago. He supplies guys in bands and some really, really sweat and he said the only problem is ear wax some times but the 13 and all of his IEM's have filters so if the wax does migrate and plug up the filter he can change it out without a problem but sweat is not a problem.

Point taken. But in those places, like after midnight going up and back through the Caldecott tunnel, beneath the flicker of sodium vapor, and then shooting out the other side into the relative black of Orinda, and then returning to see the Bay with something like Porcupine Tree or Pink Floyd surrounding your head......... um, yeah, you're right, it's a bit risky.

Same here!
I can't believe I just leave all my other iems at home now

I now only bring another amp but not other iems...
post #1603 of 10287
my friend was hit by a person who had earphones (not even iems) even in broad daylight. a car and iems or earphones should never ever be considered under any circumstances as you never know what or who is where and, there is just that much more responsibility.

Get out your cameras and get some PIC's and while you're at it post some cool pics in the Calling All Customs thread. You can do your reviews here. I'm already sold but we want some visual stimulation and "emelius"'s avatar is making me think naughty thoughts.

shigzeo, I am very sorry to hear about your friend. I agree there are a lot of things that shouldn't be mixed with driving: eating, drinking, cell phone dialing [still not illegal in CA even though we must now in theory use a handsfree or one-ear headset], putting on makeup, etc. Heck, it's clear some people cannot even talk to each other in their car without being distracted. Sheesh, I've seen people reading newspapers and books while driving. And don't forget about the visual distractions of GPS and in-dash displays, or audio units that go so loud they might as well be headphones. Slip inside a new Jag or Aston-Martin; the sound system is excellent, and the sound insulation so good, the outside world cannot get in. And every one of those things piles on the distraction.
