What are you using as a source for these on a portable set-up?
Yes, that's the downside of customs! Which is also why I didn't by a €1000 TOTL cIEM. I might do that someday, if I have a job etc.
I'm using the DX50 as a source, as is 50% of head-fi nowadays :p
I also bought the JDS C5 as a a portable amp, but the DX50+C5 was way too big and heavy for me. The insignificant increase in SQ wasn't worth the added discomfort. And the worst part, I couldn't give a rats *ss about that small increase in SQ when I was standing in the train.
