Mike (ljokerl) is a well known member around these parts of head-fi and many if not everyone here know of his in ear monitor and portable headphone review threads. This thread is an opportunity for us as a community to give back to someone who has given head-fi so much.

 

I propose that we as a community chip to help buy a pair of high end custom in ear monitors in the Unique Melody Miracle!    

 

 

I know that Mike has spent countless hours, effort and money helping us as a community with his two review threads, answering the dozens of PM's he receives daily about recommendations and just being helpful to both old and newcomers to head-fi in guiding us on our path to audio nirvana. There has to be 100 or so people that has been helped along the way or appreciates the hard work he has done!

 

There is enough people committed to donate so payments will begin shortly after I figure out some details about payment as well as payment instructions. Everything will be posted up when I get home.

 

 

I'll start it off as the first donation as I am the creator of this thread :)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PAYMENT

 

Payments will be done via PAYPAL only. I will be sending messages to those who are donating and will include my paypal address.

 

The default contribution amount is $10 so the dollar amounts I calculated is only valid for that donation amount. There will be instructions further down for those who are donating more than $10.

 

There are various payment options depending on if you live in the US or not and if you want to pay using the gift option or goods/services. In order to use the gift option you must have the funds already in your paypal balance or pay with your bank account. Once again in order to use the gift option you must have the funds already in your paypal balance or pay with your bank account.

 

If you reside outside of the US please select US Dollars as the currency.

 

PAYMENT INFORMATION

 

In order to know who sent what everyone will need to use the note feature in paypal. On that note you will include your head-fi user name, amount you are donating after paypal fees as well as the number on the donation list so it is easier to find you. Also after payment please send me a separate PM titled "ljokerl fund payment" letting me know that you have paid and I will check my paypal account to confirm.

 

PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR $10 DONATION

 

GIFT OPTION FOR EVERYONE : You will send a total of $10

GOODS/SERVICES OPTION FOR US RESIDENTS : You will send a total of $10.61

GOODS/SERVICES OPTION FOR NON US RESIDENTS : You will send a total of $10.72

 

 

PAYPAL FEE STRUCTURE

 

US RESIDENTS : 2.9% + $0.30

NON US RESIDENTS: 3.9% + $0.30

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THOSE DONATING MORE THAN $10

 

 

GIFT OPTION : You will send the amount you want to donate

GOODS/SERVICES FOR US RESIDENTS : Add $0.30 to the amount you want to donate and then multiply by 1.029. Take that number and round up to the nearest penny

GOODS/SERVICES OPTION FOR NON US RESIDENTS : Add $0.30 to the amount you want to donate and then multiply by 1.039. Take that number and round up to the nearest penny

 

 

Lastly if you are given the option to pay the fee you may choose that as well.

 

 

IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS OR QUESTIONS PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND SEND ME A SEPARATE PM.

CURRENT VOTE TALLY

 

Unique Melody Miracle - 22

Jerry Harvey Audio JH13 Pro - 7

Westone ES5 - 2

Ultimate Ears Reference Monitors - 4

 

 

After looking at how the votes and how much money is gathered I have decided that there is more than enough information and no real need for more votes. We are buying ljokerl the UM Miracle.

I'll contribute $10 - Unique Melody Miracle.

 

I'm glad to see the movement that I started is taking off smoothly. Just one thing - Ed at Westone told me the ES5s were $950.

In for $10!

Makes sense to me to go for the most neutral iem (which will serve as a good baseline against all other phones for his reviews): UE Reference Monitors.

I'm in for $20 for now. Contact me if your needing more to hit a goal.

I originally voted for something else, but upon reading up on the IEM's listed, I think Joker would like the Unique Melody Miracle so that's my vote.
