How DO band sound engineers choose the ciems for their band members? I would love to know and see what customs my favorite bands are using :P

 

Me too.  From what I have heard, some band sound engineers are in charge of making the choices for all on stage sound, including custom in-ears if the band uses them.

I ran out of posts at the beginning of this thread, unfortunately tongue_smile.gif

Looking forward to your updated SE-5 review, Joe.

I'm due to receive my pair within the next 10-14days smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks, I am aiming to have that done either late next week or the week after.

Interesting price, at least...

Pity they don't offer a triple-BA design

Indeed. Their CIEMs have silicone shell, but there aren't many customization options availble. Regarding the sound...Joe should ask one for review and audition purposes. wink.gif

 

Sigh. Wake me up when September ends when you find a CIEM company in Vietnam. biggrin.gif

Hey, don't feel bad; I'm in Eorope and my 2 Custom IEMs are from China and Poland. China is nearer to you than it is to me!

Sure, it is nearer, but at least you've got a plenty of audiologists in your region. In contrast, it is virtually impossible to get ear impressions here except from only one CIEMs distributor in Vietnam who is located not in my city, sigh. Don't remind me about hospitals because I will definitely fail to explain what I want from them, and they simply are not familiar with these things as they don't have much knowledge and experience.

 

It is really funny. I am holding the UM Miracle in my hands right now, but I can't reshell them because I can't get ear impressions. So all I can do is to wait until the end of May in order to get ear impressions done in Russia.frown.gif The only good thing about that is during this period of time I will manage to save up enough money for reshelling.

Ahh, OK, now I understand your situation. That is unfortunate. I know some head-fiers make their own ear impressions, but, personally, I would very strongly recommend against doing this, even for someone like you, who has no audiologist available in your area. How much do you value your hearing for your lifetime? If DIY ear impressions go wrong, it is possible to damage some of the anatomy of the ear, forever.

Therefore, I firmly believe you are doing the right thing by simply waiting until you can get them professionally done.

Just tried the TWag v2 AND TWcu 26 HYBRID IEM replacement cable. Really amazing build quality.  The cable makes IEMs sound fuller with enhanced resolution and transparecy. Details are more prounounced.

I recall you saying that you didn't feel your SE-5 benefited much from using a high-end cable (perhaps it was a Twag? I don't remember which cable it actually was).

...So, do you feel that the SE-5 benefits from your new cables?
post #1467 of 4815

Well.. very tiny change on se-5. JH16 benefits more from the new cable like usual.

Perhaps the SE-5 BAs are wired in-series? Might alter the reactivity of the CIEM (would certainly influence the impedance of the CIEM). This is pure speculation on my part.
 
Cables vary in their own impedance, reactance, noise rejection etc. I'm simply wondering why the JH16 is more susceptible to audible change, when using different cables, than the SE-5 may be.
 
I ordered my SE-5 with the 'detachable-cable' option, but this was more to allow me freedom to renew the cable, or to detach the CIEMs when I wish, rather than because I wish to spend lots of money on after-market cables.

I think we should have a sponsored competition biggrin.gif :
 
average_joe should take a photo of ALL his CIEMs together, then the first person to correctly identify every CIEM wins a new CIEM of his choice, from one of the manufacturers Joe has bought from (quick, Joe, get a Fitear 334 before you take the photo! ph34r.gif)
