1964 Ears - Page 337

post #5041 of 7413

Thank you!

 

Actually, I'm using the Emotiva XDA-2 DAC/Amp with them at the moment. The XDA-2's headphone amp is the only appropriately low output impedance headphone amp I have at the moment (SGS3 is 4 ohm, M-Stage is 5 ohm, and XDA-2 is 0.1 ohm). I'd love to have another low output impedance amp so I can try the ODAC. It's a stellar dac for my D7000's.

I just got a Predator - unsure what the output impedance is - doesn't seem to be listed anywhere. Haven't tried the V8's through it yet - but there doesn't appear to be any effect on highs or lows with my JH16 - other than it sounding pretty brilliant! I am using low gain....

Ok so yesterday I emailed Rachel regarding the price increase from 1st July 2014. She confirms that the model v6-staged would not have a price increase which is good news for me. I need to save some more bucks before jumping onto these as my first pair of customs :D

The price increase is only for the V8, they introduced it at a $100 discount to increase interest and will be reverting back to MSRP on July 1st.

 

 

 

 

I borrowed an old iPhone 4 for portable use (also low output impedance) and it pairs extremely well with the V8! I've already figured out how to jury rig everything so I can use my SGS3's data to drive Spotify on the iPhone 4 when I'm on-the-go. :)

 

Listening to one of my favorite albums, Yo-Yo Ma's Goat Rodeo Sessions.

That's good news for everyone! :)

 

Will save until November/December for the Black Friday Sale. :D

any fitting problem?

post #5048 of 7413
none at all. the fit is so good you won't feel wearing one at all. the ear impression is really important so make sure to find a good audiologist for it. I was living outside USA but they have their partners worldwide. also they would require you to send at least 3 dimension shot of your impression before sending them in.

Very nice - great choice of color - the blue looks like sapphire - and the caps are great - did they get the artwork like you imagined? (or was shown on the IEM designer?)

greet!

but my V6S's left and right faceplate are different size.one's big and one's small. seems like two people's ear impression...

post #5052 of 7413

Wow Olanzky,

 

Your V8s turned out great. I'm really looking forward to receiving mines in the next few weeks. I was quoted a 5 week turn around time from when they received my impressions.

 

I'm outside of the US too. I ended up sending about 5 photos of each ear impression before I mailed in mines. I'll report back on the fit when I receive them.

Do you have other pairs of customs? Ones with equal size caps? If this is your only pair, it might be your ears :-D

Well, get another than.  Jeeze.

 

Kidding, It's probably your concha is asymetrical.  Customs are perfect solution for asyemtric ears like ours.  Mine is also.  Same sized universal tips don't seal the same on both left and right ear for me.  I'm guessing the same for you also.  I only recently found this out, as before I didn't pay attention to it.
