I wouldn't worry much about losing 35 kg and the effect this would have on your ear canals. Just focus on the impact this will have on your well being and health.

Worst case scenario you will have to get a remould and gain a few extra years of living (who knows).

The SE-5 has an advantage being silicone, as it will be more able to accommodate slight changes in ear canal size/shape. Also, in my experience at least, the SE-5 is quite a tight fit by comparison with my various acrylic CIEMs. All in all, I doubt you'll experience any problems.

 

Ironically, on the topic of weight loss, I'm on day 14 of a water-only fast, today, but it's for health reasons, not for weight loss (my acrylic CIEMs are still fitting just fine, in spite of dropping 19 lbs :wink_face:). It's irrelevant to me, anyway, since I'll soon return to my normal weight in the weeks after I end the fast.

The weight loss could have an impact on outer ear, on the canal especially deep part not so much, but still possible. It depends on where your fat is :D Also please remember that loosing 10% from 200kg (400lbs) is not loosing 10% from 80kg (160lbs). And what's most important every one is different.

Well guys, thank you for all the explanations and examples. So my height is 1.73m and my weight is 94 for the moment (it was 104 when I started to gym). I am planning to hit 70 at least then I will see how I feel about my body and if I need to lose more or not.

 

I guess we will see at the end of this program will I need a refit or something, but I agree with Mython, silicone can be more forgiving to changes like that. I don't mind either way, if the seal stays, I can keep on using, if I need a refit, so be it, it is a part of the game anyway.

 

Thank you again for all the inputs.

Very health approach. Why worry in advance :)

 

Good luck with body shaping mate!

Thanks a lot piotrus! I was actually 70 kilos when I arrived to Belgium to do my master however student life and Belgian food caught me unprepared :D Anyway now, I am on the good track again and I must say, I really feel healthy. Ok I feel tired too but at the end of the day, this gym and losing weight makes me feel good.

 

After purchasing a dap (most likely it will be FiiO X5), I might be on a hunt to get another ciem. I heard you are working on a "flagship" product :rolleyes:

This is a really good cable. Refines the sound of SE5. The bass is more controlled. More importantly, it make it more exciting with added sparkle and space. Turning the sound signature to even more natural/neutral (closer to LCD 3).

 

The old E series cable from Stefan Audioart already improved the SE5's performance. This is just as good if not better. Will tell when I pair SE5 with Anedio D2.

What Stefan Art is it. Seems nice but sooooooo huge!

Should I make the usual joke? No, I'll pass. More seriously: Does it still qualify as a portable rig? How much does it weight on your ears, tupac?

post #1586 of 2048

That huge black "pipe" is not entirely filled. it's just used to protect the wire inside. It's not that heavy, similar weight compared to a TWAG 4 wire, lighter than TWAG 8 wire.

 

Lol it's so called one of the best cable companies for CIEMs, so I figure I give it a try ;)

 

BTW, the packaging is funny. they lock the cable into like a pan thing and delivered like a pizza lol.

post #1587 of 2048

I also wonder your answer tupac, I am interested.. Also, can't they make it more portable?

post #1588 of 2048

I bought it just to make my SE5 an ultimate CIEM for home usage, since no DAP has driven it as good as Anedio D2. but the cable is actually pretty light. I can take it outside when I wish to:)

post #1589 of 2048

Would you mind sharing the contact info for that cable? Not now but maybe in the future, I might be interested. To be honest, probably not the exact cable since this one is huge but maybe similar sounding and smaller one.

All in here, but they haven't update the website for long time. They can do whatever cable you can think of, whatever model. They can even reduce the pin connectors to make the lengths of the pin longer just for your SE5s to get a better fit.

 

In that black pipe, there are only two thin wires, so really it's not heavy at all. Actually I like the look of it for some strange reason.
