1964 Ears (The Appreciation Thread) - Page 257

post #3841 of 5217

anyone have any pics of a set of 1964s that have a faceplate that is either smoke, wine red trans, or red trans combined with a shell with any of the other colors?  I'm wanting some sort of combination of red or wine red with smoke but don't know how it would look... anyone have pics??

Did you look through their facebook photos? I'm sure there's one in there...

So basically two months after I started the whole process I'm right back at square one. After getting a second set of impressions done, probably looking at ~13 weeks total.


I hope that's just an isolated event. Judging from posts I've read here and other places, I'd gather that it is. I suppose this type of thing is prone to occur from time to time in a small shop like theirs. My excitement compelled me to just shoot them a quick email this morning to check on the build status. On my order, it's just about 2.5 weeks into the quoted 3-4 week build time.

I did and didn't really see what I was looking for.  Anyone else have anything close to this combination?

also, who has the soft tips and how do you like them?  worth the extra $50?  Are they really that much comfortable?  Do they help with the seal?

Contact 1964 & ask them to do a mockup for you (will cost $10) & you'll know exactly how what you want looks.

Hm, I'm seeing lots of designs with red and smoke faceplates. Only a few wine red.

I dropped off my impressions at 1964 ears today. I purchased the V-6 with rush processing(only $75 for me since I'm picking them up in person). I went for two colors: light blue for the left side and a custom more transparent orange for the right, clear canals and the cursive 1964 logo for both.

I listened to the demo pair and didn't want to give it back; just seven more days! biggrin.gif

Did you just listen to the V6 or did you check out any of the other models?
post #3850 of 5217
I had the misfortune of coming in only 20 some minutes before they close for lunch so I only listened to the V-6. I don't really feel comfortable giving impressions of them though because I'm having some issues with ear-wax and my finer parts of my hearing aren't quite up to par right now. redface.gif

After lurking for quite a while, this is my first post.

I'm 2 weeks out on my Quads, and can't take advantage of this sale, but maybe this will save someone here a few bucks!

Nice. They would knock $50 off the V3's a couple of weeks after I order/pay for them rolleyes.gif

Saw that last night. Would be cool if they applied that to orders in their queue.

Oh well. I got a reply from Aleksey yesterday that mine are almost finished and well be shipping out early next week. Very cool!

Good news Patrick ;-) Will be interested in your impressions once you've had some time with them. Hopefully that means mine aren't far away given we paid around the same time.
post #3855 of 5217

The down side to anyone entering the queue now while the sale is on, is their build times are going to be a lot longer than anyone who paid for them before.
