I was looking at es5 but I'd better wait for some reviews before =) 500 bucks for quad is very very tempting

Power button is artwork.  Tips are filters?  The color is superb I agree.

Welcome Vitaliy! I hope you become a regular here!

First question: when do you plan on releasing a frequency response chart for the triple and quads? I've been debating between the two. I am looking for something that offers more vocal mid's than my turbine pro copper's, but without sounding excessive (something that carries more emotion, like the electrified crispness that I enjoyed so much in my TF10's)

 

PS: where's my finders discount!?

I get my molds done today fellas! Wish me luck in getting the perfect mold the first time around. I hope this process isn't too uncomfortable. Any insight from those who have done it already?

Just make sure you get it from someone who know what they are doing and use a bite block before the audiologists puts all that stuff in your ears (it makes for a deeper impression and better than after it's in your ears). As for comfort it won't be comfortable but doesn't last long. You have some kind of goo like material deep into your ears not to mention cotton or something similar deep in your ear to prevent anything from coming in. Also they typically give you some kind of small paper box (at least mine did) to ship it so I just put that in a bubble envelope and shipped it off.

 

Hopefully it works for you but you do realize that this isn't an exact art so possible refits are a possibility. I've gotten one refit and one side is still a bit off but good enough as the seal becomes loose every once in a while but not too often.

Since you live in the city as well, any recommendations on a good audiologist?

Thank you at rawrster.

Lots of places here. Look at the JHA website and there are a couple places you can get them done. The guy I got it done was good and I found out after I got them done that he's listed on the websites for various customs companies such as JHA, Westone and I think UE. Dominick Servedio or something similar to that is the guy I got it done for. He's on 59th street pretty close to central park south and close to lincoln center shopping plaza. He does it for $50 cash which isn't a bad deal. There's also an Andrew Resnick a lot of people go to but he is a bit more expensive at $85 iirc but people say he makes good impressions as well but can't remember where he's located..I think somewhere on the east side by 85th or so.

My office is right around there so that's brilliant.  I was a bit confused by who to go with and wanted to go with first hand impressions.  Thanks for the heads up, I will need to pay Mr. Servedio a visit once I sort out which customs I want to venture into.

 

Thanks, rawrster!

Impressions done and shipped. It was a bit uncomfortable but nothing too bad. They didn't have a block, so I had to keep my mouth open the whole process. The audiologist who did the impressions was just gorgeous!! So that was incentive to keep my mouth open (I didn't let my tongue hangout though...lol).

 

She said if anything goes wrong to just call them and they'll do them over right away. They didn't use cotton to block the material from down the ear. They use a some type of blue spongy foam like thingy with string connected to it. She said it was better than cotton. So, by this time next week or the following week I should have customs in my ears and ready to give you guys the lowdown. Wish me happy listening!!gs1000.gif

Hope it works out for you eric and that you don't have to do multiple impressions like I did. I've been in talk with them and might go for the triple driver if everything turns out well for you after I secure some funds for saving. Something suitable for bass heads probably isn't something that I would like in a custom since I'll pick up something more neutral than bassy for my preferences.

That's my concern.  I was hoping the triple would be single low, mid and high but it was dual low.  I'm looking forward to impressions of the quad.  I'm hoping that it will present a more neutral presentation instead of what sounds like a rather U shaped sound.

post #89 of 5158

I got no issues with dual low and single for the mids/highs. The other way around may have them sound too much like my current Livewire customs which is something I don't want but at the same time I don't want to deviate too far from my sound signature. I'll have to think about the next step after making some calls. I have to see if the JH5 would cost $400 with impressions and shipping if I get them from a dealer. However my emails with them doesn't sound too bad so far and I'm waiting for eric's impressions of them as well as when they have their spec sheet out on them. I asked them for a frequency graph so hopefully something soon.

Info below from the Jerry Harvey website re the issue of foam vs. cotton for blocking the impressions (deep inside your ear). I had impressions done for my JH5s and the audiologist used cotton (I brought the "tip sheet" with me, but they used cotton anyway. Lucky for me, JH turned them around in a single day, which is amazing. Overall time, one week (UPS shipping both ways). Anyway, I also had a bite block (2 in.) while getting the impressions. They fit perfectly first time, every time. Just lucky I guess. I am interested in the 1964 Ears triples, but not sure I want to spend even more (do I need two pair of customs?). So for now, happy with JH5s, which I absolutely adore SQ-wise. Best I have ever heard, by far.

 

Here's the info from the JH page for audiologists:

 

 

3. We also require that the dams are made of cotton instead of foam. Foam will tear the end of the canal when removed for processing.
