Dream Earz aud-5X Custom IEM Review: Pure Value @ $565 - Also the appreciation thread! - Page 19

Send Mitch an email he has been nothing but helpful. the link to the website is in the first post i believe. Drop him an email and ask him, i believe there are others on this thread from here in the UK so Mitch definitely ships overseas but not sure exactly at what cost as I'm going to the states soon and will pick mine up whilst I'm there.

 

Hope it works out for you

That was a screen cap I made on FB. That was the response Mitch gave when someone asked if Drm Earz were available in Britain.

I from the UK and got mine sent to Afghanistan via the British forces post office in London so he definitely ships to the UK and beyond. Just checked my invoice and the international shipping was $45. If you have any questions just ask him, Mitch is great to deal with.

The DRM series is tuned for drummers, the aud for audiophiles, and I didn't see a DRM-5X, just  DRM-4X on Mitch's site.

It is nice that Mitch heads such a "custom" company.  Sure, first and foremost he makes custom monitors but I think what really sets him apart is his custom service.  He's not only willing to ship pretty much anywhere but he'll modify the monitors to whatever specifications you need, a few members have already had this done and I think average_joe can attest to this based on his review.  This is a boon for a lot of us because with many top tier customs there is little room for manipulation/modification.  For a little less than $600 what more could you ask for?  I mean that's about as custom as it gets haha.  Anyway, I'm terribly excited to hear some new impressions as it seems a couple members got their monitors quite recently.  If I may add a word of advice for those who just received theirs, take your time with them.  These are not "audiophile" sounding and produce a much more heavy, punchy, euphoric sound than the general clean and clinical approach.  So give your ears a bit of time to drink this in and get used to it.  By the way, they sound much better amped.  I'm using a TTVJ Slim out of my iphone or line out of my preamp, into the Slim, in my main system and the result is astounding!  Straight out of the iphone they are better than my other phones, but can be a bit muddy.  Keep the impressions coming in!!!

You have to respect someone that is answering emails at the first opportunity he gets, 7 days a week. On Sunday, while Mitch was on the road for his gig he followed up on my monitors. He was concerned about every detail. He is genuinely concerned about his customers.

Dream earz was created for the people by the people. Mitch is a stand up fellow that cares about his customers. This is a company that deserves recognition. The price / performance ratio is amazing. I will post my impressions in a week or so.

All right v0nn I'm dying for some impressions!!!  Has anyone else received their Aud-5x yet?

post #282 of 596

Finally placed the order with Mitch. Have a Rush order on mine as I'm visiting my wires sister in NYC in a couple weeks so they should be there when we arrive :) can't wait to get a hold of these things. Saves me the money and hassle of shipping here to the UK. Clear Blue with Carbon Fiber Faceplate biggrin.gif CAN'T WAIT!!

 

p.s Had my impressions done here in London at the Edgware Road Specsavers and Mark was great and seemed to know exactly what was going on but followed Mitch's instructions which was great.  So anyone in London, thats my advice on where to go and fair price at £20

 I'll second that. Bring them on v0nn!

 

Mitch has told me that mine will be with me no later than Monday. They were shipped exactly 3 weeks after he received my impressions. Very impressive, given the amount of work he has on! He also sent me a pic straight away which was a nice touch. I'd like to echo the praise about customer service. Mitch has responded to my emails within 8 hours every time, despite the 7 hour time difference (I'm UK based). This sort of standard mirrors Dales service at Aurisonics, and in my eyes sets a whole new standard. These guys are obviously doing this out of passion.

 

Will post impressions in due course!

I hear ya. Ill get on it.

Tax season hasn't treated me well and Ive caught a cold. It mostly out of my system and I should have my impressions done before the weekends over.

In the meantime I can post some pics.

Mitch did a translucent neon green shell for me. Its not entirely clear like other colors.

As some of you may recognize.Those are indeed chris_himself cables. Those are the cables that I have paired with my monitors.
