I'm curious if the price difference from Fisher to the aboved mentoned means better quality molds. Fisher i believe costs 100 usd. I have looked at the facebook pics and i must say the Quality of there molds look appealing.

I got an email response in less then 24hrs to so no complaint with their service.

Someone mentioned shipping to Europe. International shipping is free on orders over $400 for now, that really only means their quads, but probably be saving yourself $50usd or so added to the $50 dollar sale price. Sounds good but impressions are what everyone is hanging for i guess.

Well, supposedly you would be saving money by buying the triples over the quads which are basically similar except for the quads having slightly more recessed mids and larger bass correct? I wonder then what are the major differences between the duals and triples

I have sent another email asking for more details on how 1964ears feel their quad compare to the big boys customs. So I expect to hear back from them soon. They are generally pretty responsive. They had given me an answer to this over the phone, but my notepad with notes I jotted down (I was multitasking) seems to be misplaced. So when they share their thoughts with me, I'll share it with you before I actually hear for myself.

 

I'm scheduled to get impressions done Friday. So they may get the impressions Monday or Tuesday at the earliest. Then we have a five to 10 days wait before I get the finished product. So we have at least two more weeks before I can even give initial impressions.

I'm looking forward to your impressions, especially how they compare to your fx700. I remember dfkt stating that in terms of pure SQ the fx700 beat out his UE11 - though as a total package the UE11 are obviously superior. Still, I'll be interesting to hear if that's the case here as well.

Anyone know anything about how the cable plugs are attached?  Some of the pics show the plugs countersunk into the housing which I thought was a cool feature.  Other pics show a typical cable plug fully exposed so I'm confused as to what to expect from 1964 ears in this regard.

post #55 of 5336

Okay fellas (and ladies), I have some updated information about the quads that I can share with you. But first, on Anaxilus question. I think all of their customs are the detachable cables (I may be wrong on the lower single-unit customs, but I'm pretty sure on the double, triple and quads). The attached cables are for remolds (say you wanted to get your SM3 made into the custom). You have the option of attached or detachable cables. Of course, detachable cost more (like $30 more).

 

Now, here is a portion of correspondence from 1964ears to me. I had a few questions regarding something I'm working on, but besides that I asked for more details regarding the sound of their customs, particularly the quads. This was my answer from them:

 

"The quads would be more compared to the UE 11s, the drivers are dual
low, single mid, single high balanced armature drivers coupled with a
3-way passive crossover network. The quads are really exciting to
listen to, the low end sounds full and the high frequencies are crisp
and because of the dedicated mid driver the mid range is very smooth,
with the quads you get a little more fuller sound vs our triple driver
monitors."

 

Hope that helps answer some questions until one of us can give you more detailed impressions.

 

Eric

X3 awaiting for your review. I want to try their custom too, but just don't know what to expect. Has anyone requested a freq response chart of the triple and quad driver models? Their pictures look great, but I'm very curious how the shell craftsmanship compared to Fisher Hearing and Unique Melody.

Wow, 500 dollars for something that will hopefully beat out the Ue-11. What can I say?

But the triples would be a greater deal if they can defeat the livewire trips, jh-5s, and um double/triples

Hello all updating this thread a bit.

Quad Driver IEM

Our quad driver is the flagship model that was developed with bass lovers in mind. It reaches to the lowest of lows while still keeping the mids and the highs crisp and clear.  With four balanced armature drivers per ear, their sound signature is sure to please drummers, bass players and the like.  

Features: Dual low, single mid, single high balanced armature drivers coupled with a 3-way passive crossover network. The quads are really exciting to listen to. We taken the lows lower and extended the highs. Also clarity is better because of the dedicated mid range driver.

 

Triple Driver IEM

The triple driver was designed for a full spectrum sound with a slight emphasis on the bass region. It’s the most natural sounding IEM without being sterile and boring. This model is recommended for stage use, studio and portable music listening.

Features: Dual low, single high balanced armature drivers coupled to a 2-way passive crossover network.

 

Dual Driver IEM

This model is a great entry to multi-driver IEMs. With a dedicated speaker for the lows, and a smaller, faster speaker for the highs, the dual driver will give you punch and clarity simply not possible with one speaker. Its great for vocalists, guitar players and portable music listening.

Features: Single low, single high balanced armature drivers coupled to a 2-way passive crossover network.

 

Yes, we have definitely compared our models and find the duals are comparable to the UE5, the triples to the UE7, and the quads to the JH11 or UE 11.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

post #59 of 5336

Even more detailed answers @ Sil3nce. Great job! As I said, my correspondence was on something ask, but I threw in a quick question about the quads. Like the detailed answers you received on just about all of their products.

post #60 of 5336

I can't believe their duals are comparable to the Ue5

and triples with jh7

If that's a valid claim there's going to be no hesitation to buy all three. duals, triples, and quads
