So far with 2 hours of listening it has not occured. I suspect that it overheats after prolonged hours of usage?
Btw, the left driver is printed with a R instead, took me long enough to notice it lol, didnt bother to send for RMA once again.


Yes, it will overheat with prolonged use and then fade back in fairly quickly when you let it cool. Guess someone stuck a shell printed with 'R' on the left driver at the factory.

That's a tough one - I really like both. I think the IE has a slight upper hand in technical ability with its high levels of detail and texture while the SB offers a bit more treble sparkle and a wider soundstage.

ljokerl,

Are there similarities of sonority between the Sunrise Xcape IE and the Monster MDT?

Thank you!

I thought it might be ear wax but it looks real clean. Just wondering if this happens to anyone else.


 

 

Lol, the same happening to me every time, first it was the left one now it's the right one. It it is very annoying. Tried to contact Lendmeurears but they wont respond. If i knew they would be like this i would have baught it from ebay UK. Btw i also had the Sennheiser cx400 ii. The xcape sounds a lot better imo, but u will miss some bass.

To an extent - yes. They share quite a few similarities, actually, but keep in mind the balance difference - the bass of the MD is much more dominant in the overall sound.

Wow, same just happend to my pair. I've had these for 2 months now and it just started doing the same thing as you described, 1 minute after I read your post.

Will give you an update tomorrow whether it was really due to the driver overheating.

post #157 of 258

Lol, now u wish u had never read it ;p

I still did not get response but well it's weekend. I have them only for a week but i have this problem since day 2 or 3? I did not have much time to listen to them.

=/ That's too bad.

 

The reason why my right-side was dampend, was most likely due to overheating. They're working fine right now.

post #159 of 258

Yeah i have the same but after putting them in my ears for what shall is say +-1hr. the problem returns every time. Sometimes after just a couple of songs, like now. Could u imagine that u can listen to music or watch to movies for just a short amount of time then u need to pause? I don't want a refund or something i want a new one who does not have this problem, They just sound really amazing imo.

So it's true about overheating drivers? It happened quite a bit in the first two weeks of burn-in. Not so much anymore. However, can an overheating driver cause permanent damage or is it generally just temporary?

Anyone knows where can i still get SW-Xcape v.1?

post #162 of 258

Yep, it shure is true. I don't know if the problem will dissapear forever after burn in but the problem is an reported issue as far as i know.

Used on the sale forum and that's probably about it.

Between the XCape IE, RE0 and HiSoundAudio Crystal2(or something else in the same price range) which would you choose to use on the gym with MP3s?

 

 

Thanks :)

I'd go for the Crystal as it probably won't fall apart and is a decent enough all-rounder.
