This is not an audio clipping sound as I am familiar with those being an audio engineer. I have a feeling that the constant cutting in and out from the original cable for the half a day I had it connected and troubleshooting has caused damage to one of the BA drivers… 

 

I have never had the CIEMs overly loud as I do not want to blow them (I'd say no higher than a 40/60 on a FiiO E17, with the Mac at 50% via USB or the iPhone at 60% via AUX) So nowhere near capacity… 

 

Do they rattle when you shake them?

Just done a heap of frequency sweeps, nothing seems out of place. I can see now why the treble is so sweet on these things, there is some noticeable dips in the top end on a frequency sweep. Can anyone recommend some good tracks to highlight these babies?

No, must have been a dodgy track. Damn you Miracles for making my favourite tracks flaws so apparent! Anyhow, I just realised that this is the wrong thread for this, I apologise for hi-jacking it. Back to remold appreciations!

have anyone ordered through custom-iem.com lately?

 

I don't want to mail my impressions all the way to Australia and would rather deal with their China office directly. Sadly, no one has replied. I've sent the form over to them along with a few inquiries and there was nothing.

 

I'm planning to do a TF10x4. I've been reading through the thread and there only seems to be a hand full of guys that has done the mod; most guys seem to go with as many drivers as possible.

 

I am still contemplating with whether to go with Thousand Sounds or UM

 

UM clearly has the better build quality and international reputation. Doesn't charge extra for L/R different colors and allow better customizing. However, communication is horrible and the wait times seem long.

 

Thousand sound on the other hand seem to have good build quality (but doesn't seem to be on the same level as UM based on the pictures). They also charge extra for extra colors. The guy who makes the headphones there (Master Tsui) is great with communication and knows what he's doing.

 

UM and Thousand Sound seems to be the two biggest / well reputed CM maker in China right now. hopefully someone can help me with this and provide me with some insight on the TF10x4.

what is the usual turn around time for response? and are you using Chinese or English?

 

It's been a few days since my last email. Hopefully I can get my order through before the end of the year to avoid the price increase.

Sorry, I was in Japan for the e-earphone Akihabara audio show, so some emails were not replied in time.

Hi Stephen, 

 

I appreciate your reply. Do you have an associate in China right now that I can contact? I'm heading to Shanghai in two days and would like to get the order rolling. I'll be doing my impressions in Shanghai and will be shipping from there.

 

If you don't mind, please take a few minutes to take a look at the email I sent you.

 

Thanks

I got my TF10x6! Here is the picture

 

 

The fit is perfect. First impression Compared to my TF10, it has bigger sound stage. Sound separation is better.

The high is a little bit harsh to my ear, I hope it will settle down later on.

I ordered through UM international, UM lab received my ear impression and TF10 on November 24 and i received the tf10x6 on December 24.

Just poking my nose in here and asking if age should be a primary concern when getting ciem due to changes in ear canal? Or should one wait till around 18 b4 getting ciems so that not that much money is spent on refits yearly?
Anyways I am 15 and using the er4s and maybe looking to upgrade to ciem soon.

my guess, it will fine at your age. But you can always call your audiologist and ask for their opinion.
