My V3's are sitting in a postal depot 5 miles away & it's 12.35am. The morning can't come soon enough ;-))

They've arrived ! Pics, thoughts, impressions later but they fit like the proverbial glove. Very happy at this initial stage, let's see how they go with a couple hours of use over the rest of the day ;-)

Ok, the guy at 1964 ears already reply my e-mail, its like this

 

"The V6 has neutral bass so as a bassists you may find that lacking. The Quad
has the most bass but it may be too colored for reference listening. The V3
strike a good medium between the 2.



The deposits are D $325, V3 $375, Q $3450 and V6 $575 for international
customers. Domestic lending is cheaper because it’s the same country.
Shipping with insurance and tracking is $45."

 
my current question for 1964 ears is like this: 
 
"Hi, I'm from Indonesia, I would like to request of the universal demo of 1964 Ears V6, Quad and V3. The question is that, do I need to pay the universal demo? and what time do you give to me when you guys lending the universal demo unit?. Sorry to ask this thing because there is no Audio store in Indonesia that sell or promote the 1964 Ears. 
 
If I can get the demo, maybe i would like to consider 1964 Ears as my first Custom In-Ear Monitors (because I'm afraid of buying CIEM without testing the sound). Maybe you guys can recommend which Demo is the best for On-Stage Bassist and Sound Engineer which fall in love with the detailed and a well balanced sound (I'm not a Basshead, I don't like Monitor which has too much treble and bass. I need balance and detail sound  ). 
 
I'll probably use this CIEM for my Live Stage and My Sound Engineer College."
 
He recommend the V3 and I reply him like this:
 
"So for my requirement is the V3 more suited than the V6?(some people said that the V6 is the most detailed custom in ear monitor that 1964 Ears made). And what do I use to pay the deposit, plus the shipping cost. Also can you give me the exact price of each demo?(because some people in the head-fi forum said that the deposit is not that expensive compare to the original price of the customs)."
 
for V3 owner, is it the right information?

Well....Almost two days of using them, I'll give a few impressions (Not super detailed/technical/'critical' ones tho, that isn't my bag)...

The sound sig is almost exactly what I expected, and that expectation was based on what I'd read here. I'd say the people here who have reviewed/described the V3's have very good ears & almost all I read described them pretty much exactly the same way (there was a consistency with what most people heard).

So everyone (too many to mention) who has posted their thoughts re: the V3's on here since their release (and 1964Ears/CIEM's in general), my thanks & a big beerchug.gif for all of you regular_smile%20.gif

A fair emphasis on bass, these have plenty of bass to burn. To my ears, most prominently in 'mid-bass', tho these can seriously rumble low when they need to/when the music requires it. Lovely mids, really lush & detailed to my ears, maybe a little rolloff in upper mids (??) without sacrificing that detail or sounding 'veiled.' Highs/treble are definitely rolled off a bit, but again not to the point of missing out on detail (But they're definitely not 'sparkly' like, say, the Brainwavz B2's as an example). Great soundstage. And one thing that did surprise me, they're not as brutal on 'lower quality' recordings as I expected. 80% of my digital collection is FLAC, about 15% is 320kbps MP3 & the other 5% in lower bitrate stuff. I tried a couple of 128kbps MP3's last night for laughs & they didn't sound nearly as bad as I was expecting. Yes, you can hear more 'flaws' than you would with any of my universals (which are obviously more 'forgiving' due to being less detailed, etc, etc), but it's not so bad you have to immediately turn it off. It's quite tolerable for the occasional song (Which for some older stuff is unavoidable due to not being able to access higher quality & happens if I'm out & about and listening to a mixed 'playlist').

All in all a really 'musical' (if that makes sense ?) and just plain fun/pleasant to listen to sound. Once I got used to the feeling of them in my ears after that couple of hours yesterday, they're really comfortable. Great fit, fantastic build quality (obviously no bubbles noticeably being solid black) - they're very very well finished, compared to the universals I've owned to date (mostly in the $100-$200USD range) which look a bit 'cheap' (because they are I guess tongue.gif) in comparison. Great/prompt service from 1964 also means whatever their flagship model is when I next get the itch to buy another pair of customs will be high on my list (Assuming the sound sig is what I'm after).

I honestly tried to keep a lid on my expectations with these, hoping they'd surprise me, and they've definitely done that ;-)

I concur with pretty much everything stated above. I just wish I had opted for the longer cable.

I can imagine the longer cable would be handy to run under your clothes/down your back when you're playing wouldn't it Patrick ?

Yep.

Anybody hearing about their 1964s from the Memorial Day sale?  They told me build time was three weeks from the time they get your impressions, so hopefully mine should be getting dropped in the mail at the end of the week.  Really looking forward to these.

 

Also, re-asking a question that never got answered: does anyone have a recommendation for new cables for the 1964s?

Check out BTG Audio's Starlight or Sunrise cables. Great quality and fair price.

Yay, just got the notification that my V6s are in the mail!  Since they are coming from the other side of the country I'm just going to assume that they won't be here until early next week but I am really looking forward to trying out my 1st CIEMs.

I think you might be pleasantly surprised re: delivery time Wraith. They posted mine on Thursday arvo US time, I got them Tuesday morning Australian time (Monday evening US time), and that was with their 'standard' delivery option; wasn't expecting them until the Thursday/Friday.

I picked myself up a FiiO E17 for $110 on Groupon a week ago or so...holy cow...now I'm getting the full experience of my V3's. O man! So great!
