Wow I must have gigantic ears because I didn't even think that's how that was. I just popped the things in and there was a ton of available space. Looking at the photo though, you're right. Still, super comfy on me once I stopped trying to ram the things into my brain.

They look similar in my ears, but that rear end creates a pressure point after a little while. You can see the size (length) difference vs a more conventional "ergonomic" earphone (the Westone UM3X). The Shure is thicker, too.

 

 

I'm sure for many people the Shures and Westones will be equally comfortable. Just wish I could say the same for myself.

Hello

Joker,

 

I got a chance to AMP the Liberty 1's against the Sennheiser HD800 at the headphone shop close to work.

 

Would you believe to the store owner and my surprise the Liberty 1's was a little sweeter (or more vivid) in all areas of the sound spectrum?!

 

We kept switching back and fourth and could not understand how these IEM's bettered the HD800!!!

 

Try-out category was "classical music".

 

This week I'll continue more testing when I get the chance. I'll keep you posted!

 

 

Ps. -I did not know they made a separate carry case for these. The shop owner gave me one free! It has the "wing logo" of the Ivery company. I wish I would have known ahead of time, I would have thrown one in for you before shipping yours. Darn!

 

......Check your PM.

Are you really throwing a 9$ earphone against The Headphone, a 1400$ Sennheiser HD800? And calling it better? Come on...

Let's wait for 1clearhead's more elaborate review of the Liberty IS-1 to see if his head was clear of what he was comparing the IS-1 to :D

Oh man, you reminded me when I first stumbled into this hobby, the Dunu Tridents are awesome for the price, sq and build quality are hard to beat.

Different People, different perception. But 9$ iems SQ wise better than one of the kings? I doubt it.
Anyway, im looking forward in recieving these iems and judge for myself. They must be good if clearhead is that positive about them smily_headphones1.gif

It looks legit to me.

 

But, watch out! I'm pretty sure other third-party fakers are starting to read this forum and might start making the fake ones in no time from China! So, get them now why you can!

 

I thought Chinese don't fake there own products, but when they started faking the Xiaomi Pistons that changed my perspective on how I view products now. It doesn't matter what product it is, fakers will jump on any band wagon, even there own people!

 

For the last comment.....I haven't had any micro phonics or wire problems, as of yet. The wire is made of heat resistant TPE, which sounds good to me. And they're extremely comfortable to me. I wear them hours at a time while working. That's pretty good, I say.

Trust me I hesitated to write about this experience today. This is my reputation I'm throwing out their. I don't joke around with what I hear.

 

.....I was enjoying classical music through the HD800 at lunch time at a local headphone shop and figured, hey? Why don't I try my Liberty 1's on this high-end AMP to see how good they sound, amped-up! Never in the world did I think they would give the HD800 competition from my perspective. That was not my intention. But, I was actually starting to enjoy the Liberty 1's more! The violins and other instruments playing sounded more realistic to me. It actually sounded more vivid and precise. I don't want to elaborate anymore. This is just my opinion. I hope others in this forum receives theirs to give there second opinion. To me, I just didn't realize they were that good.

 

Please, who ever gets them first, burn them in for at least 50 hours or more and get back with us. I don't want to feel like I'm the only odd-ball here.

 

It could get very lonely with no support. :frown:

Oh, trust me the Pistons weren't that far off from that price.

 

Third-party fakers would do anything to be part of the gold-rush!

post #13905 of 16691

Let me repeat one of my post: "..... thought of Mr. Ivor Tiefenbrun (legendary Linn Products Ltd) about the "front end": ".... Tiefenbrun also battled the thinking, since Edgar Villchur, that the loudspeakers were the most important, instead asserting primacy of "the front end", saying that the quality of sound of the source was key. ... " (Wikipedia) - and hundreds of articles from the past till today. Ok, not loudspeakers but IEMs (little loudspeakers....! ) ..."
