But putting sth between the source and IEM such as a resistor messes up the sound of the IEM right?

any thoughts on how I would do that? I'm using this most of the time on the train so I wouldn't want something too bulky.

The only thing I can think of is to get an amp or a dap with good volume control.

post #4429 of 5217
You can buy in-line volume controls without having to go as far as/to the expense of getting an amp or another DAP, they're cheap (well under $20 in many cases) from places like Radio Shack/etc (and online as well) something like this .

Yes, it might change the sound (never had the need to use one myself so don't know from experience), but if you really need to get the volume lower without spending a lot of money/carrying around another substantial bit of kit, might be worth throwing a few bucks at to find out, and you can always get the amp/other DAP/whatever if it doesn't work the way you want.

These gems just came in today!  V6-Stage in Trans Red and Blue with Trans black faceplate and custom art.

 

Ordered on Sept 27th, shipped on 13th, received today (14th) so about 7 weeks.

 

Fit is superb, much better than my reshelled tf10 although I can still hear ambient sound such as the clicks my keyboard makes (mechanical keyboard) as I'm typing this up.  I figured this is normal as it's the same with my tf10 and when music is playing I can't hear any ambient noise if any at all.  Other than that, I love how I can sleep with these on without feeling any pressure unlike my tf10 which sticks out a lot more.

 

Currently A/B-ing between the two.

 

 

Comparison with my not so refined reshelled tf10.

Awesome! Gettine mine in the first or second week in December, can't wait…Please do post changes between these two, as I was thinking of getting my Triple Fi 10 Pro's remolded as well, but if it's not worth it, then I wont - for the resale value, if they still have some...

post #4432 of 5217

Wait, what? 7 weeks? Why so long? They are telling me it takes about 4 weeks...

post #4433 of 5217
It depends on the backlog. That 4 weeks is about where it should be but can be pushed back if a lot of people pay for rushed and if they have a lot of orders.
post #4434 of 5217

Yeah, but if that accounts for three weeks extra..Phew..Hopefully I get them before Christmas :)

I'm not much of an experienced audiophile so I'm not sure if the terms I use are correct so take my comparison with a grain of salt if you will.   I currently listen to edm, jpop, jrock, kpop, classical, and anime/game osts.  My files are either FLAC or 320 kbps and played through my Xperia Arc or PC (foobar2000).

 

With only a small amount of time with the V6-s (~4-6 hours) and alternating between my tf10 I can for sure say that the V6-s is well above the tf10.  

 

The amount of detail that the v6-s gives is incredible, I can hear instruments that I wasn't able to hear before (Alexander Popov - Attractive Force, Tatsuya Kato - yukite ataru kabe no mae), the breathing of the vocalist before and after they sing, the creaks from a piano when one lets off the pedal (Vivaldi - Presto (Summer gales)) and faint echoes as if I'm in a large concert hall (Maaya Sakamoto - Ame ga Furu).  The mids not being recessed, unlike the tf10, really helped to bring out the smaller details and clarity of the songs I listen to, especially ones in the classical genre.

 

In terms of bass, I find the v6-s has the perfect amount and can give that awesome punch feeling on certain songs with emphasized bass (Apollo by Hardwell).  In Time to Attack by Iwasaki Taru, I can really feel that low bass rumble without it overlapping everything else but when I listen to it with the tf10, the bass overlaps everything but the highs.

 

The tf10 definitely has a larger quantity of bass that can also be bloated (muddy? I'm not sure about the terms but it feels like the bass overlaps everything) and lacks the punch that the v6-s gave when listening to Alexander Popov - Attractive Force and Iwasaku Taru - Time to Attack.

 

Can't really comment on the highs as both sound the same to me but the v6-s might have an edge in producing a higher detailed highs.  This could just be a placebo effect as it's new gear but other than that, I feel the v6-s is better overall.

 

I would suggest waiting to receive your v6-s first then doing a comparison.  If you really like the v6-s like I do, I would sell the tf10 as I'm completely blown away on how amazing the v6-s is compared to the tf10.  Probably wait out till you have both so you can also A/B them then decide.  For me, I'll probably keep my tf10 as a backup ciem or sell it and get a different ciem from 1964ears.

 

Sorry if this is all over the place and not very concise, I quickly typed this up right before I had to go out.

basically the Quad is the better upgrade for tf10

Hi guys,

Has anyone replaced their stock cable? My clear cable is turning rather greenish around the ear area.

I am currently considering twag dhc or plussound. DHC plugs sort of put me off because its not oyaide or viablue:o. They do not have wooden choker too but they do carry litz cable which is a huge pluspoint for me. And it appears that they really QC their cable before selling it.

Any opinions?smily_headphones1.gif

I am using Plusound SPC ( diy my self ) and the result very good :-) wider soundstage and better clarity for high and mid and low remain untouch :-)
post #4439 of 5217

That is stranded cable right? It looks really good. Would pay for that if its litz! 

post #4440 of 5217
Yes stranded cable :-) Litz is hard to solder and even I can strip of the coating but it will hurt the insulation bcos i don't have solder pot and I use extra solder to burn and melt the coating and resulting the burning of insulation :-(



Litz copper also from plusound . Build this for my friend RDB V1
