So there's no need to wait - you can post your impressions tonight!

I have just contacted FedEx and they told me that the package will only arrive today at FedEx and needs to go through customs. Chances are, it won't be delivered to me by tonight.

I will post my impressions after initial burn-in.

Wow, great design! Is that aluminum on the left?

Hi guys, first post here but been reading around the forum.

 

I've been thinking about buying the V3 as my first CIEM, but recently I've gotten some extra money to spend and wondering if spending the extra $200 would be worth the sound. 1964 suggested that the V6 to be used as an audiophile CIEM than the V3.

 

However, looking at the frequency graph it seems like the V3 is more forward in the mids and I like to hear the vocalist, and the V6 graph seems like it's more on the brighter side.

 

Can someone that have heard both V3 and V6 help me out here?

Your question doesn't seem to be getting much traction so I will try to help. I demo'd everything they have except the V6 Stage. I found the V6 to be better than the V3 in every way. Clarity and instrument separation were better. The bass on the V3 was the biggest let down for me, and I felt the V6's bass to be much tighter. I am not into a "bright" sound from my IEM and I think they got the V6 treble right. Hope that helps.

Vocals are flat-out fantastic on my V6-Stage Universals.

I received mines yesterday. Took just under 5 weeks to ship out. I'll have to post impressions later as I've only had about 30 minutes to listen to them so far.

Listening to Rush's "Spirit of Radio" at 24/96 with my V8's through my DX90 -  A holiday doesn't get much better than this......

 

Where are my matches.... I gotta blow something up later. :biggrin:

Finally got mine! Initial impressions would be high +, mid +-. low +++++. I don't know they do it, but this is my favorite UIEM in producing low regions of music, even bested my AKR 03 IMO.

 

God, gotta go listen more. The comfort is also out of this world

Anyone who ordered their 1964s with recessed sockets? Does it really justify the additional $25?

 

Also, what are the available aftermarket cables for the 1964s (especially V6-Stage)? Am afraid I'll be having a hard time looking for one when I opt for the recessed socket.

AFAIK, you will really have a hard time looking for a perfect fit after market cables when you do the socket recessed.

I myself would like to do it but then was adviced not to go with recessed sockets if ill be using an aftermarket cable which is really a must for me. I find the 1964 cables too thin and thats why.

Thanks. This is noted. I think I'll go with flush. :)

 

Anyway, what's your source? Am thinking of getting a DX50 or even the upcoming FiiO X1 for the V6-Stage.

 

Will be lurking for the next couple of months. :p
