The fact is, we have only done tooling for the silver/clear cable. In fact, if you order a Sensaphonics 3MAX, 2MAX or 2X-S with a black cable, at this point we would supply the Shure cable. (Sensaphonics is an authorized Shure dealer.) We haven't tested anything else.

I don't own any SE Series, so I can't compare with any authority. The Sensaphonics connectors can be fully rotated, but the nature of the deep connection requires positive force to do so. Mine stay in position quite nicely, but are not difficult to rotate by hand. Hope that helps...

Yep - it can move, but never does so until you specifically make it.

Thanks!

And I'd forgotten (or missed??) Kunlun's review, with more pictures.

Thanks.

 

For those curious, here's a reference page showing the current cable options from Sensaphonics:

I quite like that 4-pin medieval torture device. The Shure coaxial connector looks too tame. biggrin.gif

The Dunu DC4 is finally available outside of China...in Singapore via Stage 93.  There is a special introductory price of  S$599, and then the price will increase to S$759.  Check out my review and rating.

Very nice review as always Joe, thank you.

 

Edit: I didn't see your DX100 at the source section. I hope there is no problem, you didn't lose it or something.

Thanks.  This is an older review, pre-DX100, but it just became available outside of China.  The DX100 is still my SOC (source of choice wink.gif), although I have been using it more with amps recently.

Isn't it bulky enough standalone? I guess you carry some kind of small bag with you all the time?

LOL! Don't you know Joe is too busy reviewing CIEMs to ever venture away from his desk?! tongue.gif

I didn't say he wasn't getting any pleasure - just that he's too busy to venture away from his desk!  etysmile.gif

Pity the price is $99 more than you anticipated, Joe (and soon $259 more than you anticipated). I guess that may be Stage93 taking their cut?

 

Not saying it's not worth it, just that it looked potentially tempting at $500 (although I would be wary of a CIEM with a soundstage smaller than that of the SE-5, whose soundstage I already consider to be rather small).

It is said that he never leaves the house. He tried once, and then tried to decided which dap amp ciem combo to take with him. After 5 hours he decided to stay home forever.
