Was that regular processing, or rush?  Pretty quick for regular processing.

 

Personally, Rodrigo y Gabirela and maybe some Daft Punk to start things off.  Aleksey recommended the V6 for the Spanish guitar, so I want to try that first.

Thanks for the music suggestions, I paid the extra for the rush order.

Darn.  I was all excited that they were turning their regular order load over that fast.  15-20 days it is...

I sent mine in on July 3rd, they got there on the 8th, and I'm still waiting on a shipping notification. 16 business days so far, and the anticipation continues to build. I'm afraid by the time they get here I would have forgotten how much I paid for them

My Quads have arrived!! Since these are my first custom IEMs I was concerned about fit and comfort. Oh baby to they fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable. I have had them hooked up to my iPhone5 all day and I can say the efficiency of these are very impressive, better than the SE535s. I was actually expecting to really have to turn up the volume, instead I was about to decrease by about 20%.

Ok, after 30+ hours of "burning in" my V6 is starting to open up... more like it feels the separation and transparency is a lot more apparent now.
Which is making me more paranoid now since I'm unsure if it is a defect, i.e.
1) maybe its because the volume of my left side is louder
2) or a very small lag output on my left side which is making the separation/transparency more obvious
3) the ba drivers isn't working properly as the left side seems more focused on the highs while the right is towards mid lows and lows

I've never felt this way before and its quite disturbing at the moment. I did try Chesky's left side and right side test, and it does feel to me that the left side is brighter than the right..

Sounds like a fit issue to me. "More focused on the highs" sounds more like less bass, which is caused by a poor seal. 

 

Put them in your ears and turn on a faucet, or some other source of consistent noise. Make sure there is no sound leakage, and if there is that it isn't greater in the left ear.

Well mine is a universal version and i 've been wearing the same way all these while, so dont think its the fit? Before this i didnt notice anything different. Im really hoping its because of some earwax in my right ear that is messing with my mind..

That's the ice blue right?  Those look great, which is good since that's what I ordered.  Just with side modern writing...

 

4 days down, too many to go...

My triples have arrived!!!

 

I wasn't expecting for them to just show up without a shipping notification, but theyre here and sound great.

Adapada, they look great! That's the exact face plate and shell scheme I am planning to get.
post #4047 of 5171

Well they received my left ear mold today (I had to get it redone). And now 5 business days to wait for my V6s... Wish it was hear already! (Yes I spelled that wrong)

post #4048 of 5171

Thanks, I believe it is the ice blue. I told them I wanted the same color layout as the v6s on their home page. I was hoping the blue would be a little darker but I am very very happy with them.

1964 just posted this on their Facebook page:

Head over to the Caesar Palace booth ‪#‎B10‬ at the Hong Kong Hi-Fi Show this weekend to demo a NEW flagship product from 1964 EARS. You won't want to miss this!

 

Anyone have any ideas of what this might be?

Interesting, I thought there were some posts earlier about the possibility of a reworked Quad?
