I haven't had much ear time with them so other than a generic "they sound very good" it will be a while longer before the review is published. The cable is not bad IMO and not shoddy. Sure, the UERM cable may be better, but that is the best stock custom IEM cable I have seen. The NT6 cable seems to be pretty tangle resistant.
Well im sending them back to Norway, as the local company has no tools for this and aswell as sanding the marked spot that causes the pain, the Right custom needs to be respayed with the clear coating too..
I hope i can get them back before i leave again to work next week, or get them sent to UK if the refit takes to long...
How does the Studio-V cope powerwise when driving the SA-43?
I am actually sending the Studio-V back. I wasn't impressed with the combination of the Studio V and SA-43, hopefully the ROCOO D will be better as it is designed for higher sensitivity BAs according to Hisoundaudio. It is too bad the original RoCoo A isn't available anymore as that would be a good fit for you as it has a leaner and brighter presentation.
