My replacement 5-way has arrived.  The canals are a good deal longer, providing much more isolation, and the fit is perfect!  Plus, the detachable cable is nice.  I did get a chance to try the TWag cable with them for a bit and do think it improves upon the already great sound. I still have a lot of testing to do, but I think the new 5-way sounds a bit better than the old one for whatever reason.

 

And on a side note, if there are any new owners of the custom IEMs I have reviews (or even others), we do appreciate when people share their experiences.

Impressive canal tip! Do you need both hands and a lever to pull those customs out? tongue.gif

Been mailing a bit with the company and it seems I'll be doing a review of the HF-2. Seems like it could be a great CIEM for first-time buyers who don't wanna spend all that much. I'll be sure to post my thoughts on the product here once I get my hands on it.

 

Interesting about your 5-Way. Always been very interested in that particular CIEM.

Looks great joe. I still think the bass is soften and the vocal is brought closer when I listen with Twag cable.  With stock cable the sound is more 3D. and the vocal is put in a very great position. Looking forward to more of your impressions.

Thanks for bringing that up.  Removal of a silicone shell, especially with a long canal, requires you to pull on the shell and not the cable.  My acrylic shelled CIEMs can twist out with a simple push on the cable joint area which is much faster and easier, but I am not complaining wink_face.gif

The model on the right is my old 5-way.  And I haven't tried to figure out what driver is what, but there are no duals in the 5-way.  Jokers 3-way is in his ears, er, with him.

Very cool, I will look forward to your HF-2 review.

I will have to do some more listening as I didn't spend much time comparing, but I did get the opposite feel from you.  Are you putting the cable dots in the same orientation?

Hmm. Not quite sure la. bt that shouldnt affect the sound in theory. Anyways:) I do think stock cable looks better with my black 5 ways. :) Maybe I am just deaf. lol..I will wait and see more of your impressions

Yes, FK is single.  I am just saying the Spiral Ear doesn't use any duals like most other high driver count custom IEMs.  I have seen so many TWFKs...

Whatever works best for you should be what you use, and I still have much listening to do with the TWag/5-way combo.

I read you.

 

I wonder when manufacturers start using Sonion 4400 (dual driver) which is half size TWFK and just as good. Miniaturization is a b....

I know it's Grzegorz's policy since the begining of his official work on custom IEMs in 2008 or 2009. I remeber discussing with him advantages and disadvantages of dual drivers back in the days :)
