Oe reason why people choose not go with recess sockets is for them not to have problems when they want to get aftermarket cables, i mean the fitting if the pins going to the ciems..

Here's mine. Still thinking if the $250 difference of V6-Stage makes a big difference.

Thoughts?

Nice myself I would swap sides. Therefore red is right and blue is left

Agreed, if the left was red it would bother the crap out of me. (Red always corresponds with right in audio).

I guess personal preference. I like the right side blue. I am right-handed, blue is my favorite color, so, there. lol

Easier recognition IMO.

Will the soft canals affect the sound or just preference? I don't mind adding $25 long as it will make it better (or comfortable, if that's the case).

Did you choose recessed sockets?

Universals cannot have recessed sockets, the buds are really small - and there are a crapload of BA's in there - biggins too.

I can't say for certain, but I don't think the solid faceplate with translucent shells would look that great if they are the same color. They will be different shades and look a bit off.

Just a comment on soft acrylic canals.  I have not seen the 1964 version of soft canals, but I did have soft-canals on one pair of my Ultimate Ears back when they offered the option.  I had one pair of UE standard and one pair of the UE soft-canals, both made from the same impressions.    They were not bad, but they were really not any more comfortable (they really are not especially soft).  They also were a little harder to wipe off.  Finally, UE had a lot of trouble with the soft acrylic separating from the hard acrylic.  A lot of us had free repairs.   Again, this might not apply to 1964, but just wanted to mention it.

Does the white cable oxidize and turn green? If so, should I get black?

 

I think this looks great!  Really like the colored translucent faceplate with clear.  Regarding the cables, all of my clear have oxidized green.  (Wonder if silver cables oxidize black or stay silver?)    I finally got tired of it and went black, even though for a design like this I like clear better.

Well, finally ordered a set of V8s.  Since I have a set of transparent blue UEs, I wanted to go a little wilder on this pair.  Lots of good photos out there, so decided on Teak . . .

Transparent brown bodies, and a red tip to help me identify Right.  (Initials are in Papyrus font.  Thought it looked nice with the teak)

Which one guys? The blue I can also go lighter on really not sure!

post #4963 of 7413

I have dark blue faces with translucent gray bodies.  I love the way they look.  The red and black look damn good, though, too.  That's a tough choice.  I think I would go with the black if I had my choice.  Goes better with the clear body.

I also have dark blue with clear on the ones I purchased years ago.  Nice look.  But I think black is a little more current.  

post #4965 of 7413

I've always liked the contrast of the black with clear shells, so that's my vote. All of them look cool though!
