Guys, the meat of my T51 review will be up here: Headphone.guru As I have stated, this will probably be once in awhile, and I'll still have the final scores up here on the guide. Just the main review will be posted there. Chrck it out if you have the chance. I'm not on there yet though.

As for the 5.8, the only cable I utilize is the headphone cable to the Rx, that's it. On the rare occasion I chat (which is like...almost never), yeah, I have to contend with the cable between RX and the DS4, but that's hardly what I'd call problematic.

I wish there was some form of bluetooth mini audio receiver to attach to the RX unit and one on the DS4. That way, no cable. Lol.

Like something that only communicates with it's other half. Of course, it would put some strain on the DS4 and Mixamp's inputs, so some duble sided tape or velcro would be a possible solution.

Or if you could just use Bluetooth 4.0 headsets and the console would do the headphone surround processing for us natively with AMD TrueAudio.

But, with my monitor and short-range setup, I prefer my own wired headphones and amps.

Yeah! I'm super excited for the Apple event on the 9th and the T-Mobile Uncarrier 7.0 on the 10th!

 

Oh, and Destiny.

There's an Apple event on the 9th? What's it for, a smartwatch?

I'd better call off work!

Is your PS4 going to be back in time?

 

In other news, I met up with a fellow head-fi'er in Seattle.  Tried out the HE-560, UE900, XBA-H3, and some Teac IEM's that I didn't bother catching the model number of because they were so bass aenemic.  Caveat:  we were in a relatively (compared to say my man-cave at home) noisy bar and the HE-560 is VERY open.  

 

The short versions:  HE-560 was much more sparkly than I was expecting.  Bass was deep and wide, super controlled and detailed, with enough quantity to be felt but not enough to be "bassy".  Mids were slightly recessed; nothing terrible, but I find that I prefer a more mid-centric sound so it was slightly disappointing.  But it wasn't BAD by any means, just not as great as the treble and the bass.  Overall, fantastic can.  Probably sounds even better when you can hear all the detail.  Worth 4x as much as my Q701?  No.

 

X3 had bloated bass that muddied up the mids, super V-shaped sound, totally not my style.  I didn't like them at all.  Sorry, Change!

 

The Teacs had nice mids and treble and no bass.  Not sure what the point of those were.

 

UE900 was like an inverse V (what do you call that sound sig?).  Very nice, forward mids with great detail and presence in the bass and treble as well.  Insane isolation!  Honestly, these were the star of the show for me.  I really want a pair pretty bad now.  Thinking about selling my HP100 and grabbing one of these $210-$230 ones on eBay.

 

I admit, all you guys who told me that IEM's could be as good as any headphone were (of course) correct.  I'm happy to be proven wrong on that, of course.  Just not looking forward to the hit to my wallet!  lol

 

Oh BTW, he said the HE4 actually has a similar sound signature to the HE560 (after a couple small mods he did to his).  He's going to loan me his to see for myself.  Apparently you can get them used for relatively cheap and people "in the know" think they're an absolute steal.  Guess I'll see for myself soon.

Which is why it is weird that Sony hasn't implemented bluetooth for the PS4. You could actually do this on the PS3 already.

A bluetooth headset or mic as the mic, but chat audio and game audio can be selected to output through HDMI or optical (in this case, optical since it'll be Mixamp/DSS).

 

So yeah, wtf, Sony.

I really love that IEM and actually bought it again 3 months ago but the ******* problem with the cable still exists. It's really insane, there's no reliability. No wonder they got discontinued. 

 

If you want a pair that is better built with better, more articulated low-end and more air then get the FA-4E XB as that one is the "natural successor" or let's say upgrade to the UE 900. Without any cable issues.
