But I am trying to give them adequate listening time for my review...and I have no complaints about doing do! 

 

And I did think about adding all the various threads, and maybe in time, but I don't have the time now.  I will include links in my summary reviews in the first post though.


I think you need more ears AJ.  wink_face.gif

Nice job, AJ.

 

Maybe I missed that, but what customs are you waiting for? Or is it a secret for now?

 

You wrote, you're waiting for some silicon customs. Fingers crossed for the Minerva Mi-3, because for that price they're a very interesting option.

Thanks PsiCore.

 

I can't disclose all the customs I am waiting for at this time, but the others are in the top of the first post.  I sent my impressions in to Rooth and Thousand Sounds, however both have not made it to their respective destinations yet.  I have my JH16 with Kozee, so the reshell process is underway, but I am still discussing artwork and I want to get my TF10 back first so I can get the universal TF10 to it's rightful owner ASAP!

subscribed! thank you so much. this is one of the most useful threads i have seen so far. hope this thing will become the wiki of custom earphones.

Did you get the LS8 from Rooth? I've been wondering about them and not much information here on them except by people I don't really know so nothing to go by.

@ sofastreamer: yes, I hope all this effort helps many others

 

@ rawrster: I will be getting the LS8 from Rooth.  There is one person on here with them, but I have not seen a review.  From what I have heard, it takes 20+ days for ear impressions to reach their destination in China (at least with USPS shipping without tracking), so the wait is still on...

a very informative read. thanks for the effort!

@average_joe: could you please take a look at my thread http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/544736/search-goes-on-bass-heavy-ba-type-iems-heard-a-lot-still-not-confident#post_7344999 and give me your opinion? would be nice!

Subbed! Was hoping for a thread like this. :)

Thanks all for the subs.  I am still waiting as customs do seem to take a good deal of time and I don't want to rush it.  I am shooting for my Infinity X3 review to be completed by the end of the week and have updated the review summary.

I'd especially look forward to more reviews of the Futuresonics customs, seeing as there's only one review compared to the massive number of impressions for the JHs, UEs etc and the whole custom dynamic thing is really piquing my interest. ;)

Take your time. After all you should enjoy your customs :) I look forward to what all your customs are after you get them and such.

I changed the final column on the manufacturers list to warranty and refit.  I need to get some additional information and will be updating it as I get it.

 

@ Somnambulist: Yes, I would very much like to review the mg6pro, but it is cost prohibitive as of now.  And speaking of custom dynamics, well custom dynamic/BA hybrids, I am hoping my ear impressions make it to Thousand Sound soon so I can compare some dynamic custom bass with BA bass.

 

@ rawrster: I am spending time enjoying them, but do need to get some of the reviews done soon as I have a lot on the way and don't want a big backlog.

Is that the deal on head-fi - expecting users to subscribe rather than just topping/sticky threads?

I've been curious about that.

That should be interesting. Doesn't the TS842 use a 6mm micro-driver for the dynamic?

 

Looks like it

The vent is interesting, too. I wonder how the bass will be on a 6mm driver.

 

The only higher-end dynamic that small will be the MD Trumpet, when it comes out.
