Could the FST technology actually be some kind of crossfeed adapter?

Just thought I'd point out, if nobody has noticed yet, but it seems like custom-iem.com have updated their website and it looks like they have removed the i9pro as well as many of the beat audio cables.

Yes, you are right, they have been removed from the site, but you can still buy them.  I am surprised we haven't had any additional head-fi takers on this, especially since it is less than $600.

I am actually putting more consideration into my next purchase as I am again starting to think I should spend a little less, that way I can spend more on a good DAP later on. I was thinking back to the universal route, then I remembered about the i9, and found it wasn't on their site. That is a relief though that it is still an option.

It is a good performer for the price...

ummmm

 

 


 

Guess I had to take my leap of faith.

BTW Joe do they offer any alternatives cables with FST on it?

So, did you place an order?  There is another that recently bought the i9pro but I am not sure if he received it yet.

 

Stephen can answer the question about the cable alternatives.  Hopefully, or you can probably get the cable redone by an aftermarket cable maker such as Whiplash Audio.

No not yet. I'm still collecting informations before I made my final decision.
It's a shame just how many shell colour/customize options we can pick for this custom.

Is the FST unit effect that much on sound signature?
I kinda get the feel from your review that with/with out the FST sound sig. varies quite a lot.

My ear impressions never arrived at Beat Audio. I don´t know if I will be getting them. But I have ordered a 1964 V6 also.

I got my I9Pro today. First impression. Lots of bass, but not alot more. The nozzles are very short and the right side don´t fit very well.

The nozzles are very short. They sound like 20$ earphones for some reason. Very muddy and almost no treble.

ah, that is not too good is it..... Burn in time!

 

EDIT: They really do look short!

I wonder if burn in can really change them that much. But they are dynamic.

That does look short compared to mine.  Have you asked about that?  Also, they do benefit from burn in, and I think more than less.  I remember originally thinking that the bass roll off was bad, but now, with more time on them I don't think the same thing regardless of the source, and they are now my workout IEM paired with a Clip+.

Not yet, but I think I have to send them back for a refit. The right one hurts alot to put in. The right nozzle is also the shortest. I don´t find the sound to be laid back at all except maybe the treble as its almost non existant most of the time. Mids sound forward and distant at the same time and rather bright and rough. The bass is exactly as you described it. The soundstage is big but not huge with good depth. The biggest soundstage I have ever heard is with my Redgaint A03 (compared to my I9pro they sound alot clearer) Crazy wide but almost no depth.  

 

They came with another box and with a extra cable. I think its this cable http://www.custom-iem.com/sapphire-beat-audio-earphone-cable-p-639.html with a straight oyide plug.
