In their own way they already do smash the JH13s. I'm sat at my desk listening to my JH13s right now cos I left my T1s locked in my desk drawer. But I know that after about an hour or so I'll switch to the T1s, because I know the JH13s will start to feel a little uncomfortable in my ear canals, whereas I have a meeting free day and I know I can sit and wear the T1s all day. The sound  isn't as crazy detailed, but it's still freakishly detailed in its own right, and brings its own lushness and full based joy to the mix.

 

But regardless - the company is about to get a lot more noticable is my perception.

Hookup with Altec Lansing announced. That means access to retail outlets globally for ACS.

I put mine in for a check up - hopefully I got in before the rush!

Mine are in with them as well for some cosmetic surgery, but as I have a 2nd pair this isn't such a problem!

I sold my JH13s 1 they were great but I never used them so it was hard to justify (even to myself).

Looks like we're all in, but I thought the T1 live was launched already. I'm waiting for my pair, maybe it's going to be one of the first production models then.

Hey guys after a lot of searching I have decided to go for the T1 as well. My first choice was the ES5 but in the UK the price is a grand (£400 more than in the US or the T1) so screw that. 

 

Does anybody here know if ACS have finally implemented detachable cables? I sent an email last week and I'm still waiting for a response (Not really the best start).

Official release of the Live series with detachable cables is tomorrow according to ACS (might explain lack of reply if they're busy). They told me that the cable fitting is proprietary so it would rule out trying different ones. Personally I prefer their cable hard wired. BTW the T1 is being reviewed on the gadget show tomorrow!

Nice that's great timing or is that bad timing? I just read about those A3s and have another iem to consider now and I was just about to pull the trigger.
