As a preventive measure I just wrap one earpiece on one side of cleaning cloth and other on another to prevent any kind of abrasion or wearing away. They fit without any movement and maintains the portability too.

******* my 8.a's are melting my face off L3000.gif Admittedly, this is the first nice CIEM, or headphone for that matter that I have heard.  

 

You rule, john. And sunny. And nancy. And brannan. Major props to everyone at Heir audio who keep the wheels spinning.

 

While participating on head-fi brings most people to expand their collection, I can't imagine that I will be purchasing another pair of headphones for quite some time. 

 

Well done.

Agreed. Yes, the SR-009 sounds insanely good and the HE-500 is very nice as well - but none of them would fit my needs. 95% of my listening is at the office where open (not to mention heavy) cans are not an option. For gaming I use my HD650's, the ones I posted earlier. Huge overkill, but they sound good and the comfort can't be beat. I use my 8.A with the DX100 and found that even the mighty Alo RX mk IIIb didn't bring anything to the table (sounding different, but not better) so there's really not much to upgrade for me. Now I just hang around the Heir & DX100 threads to answer questions and enjoy the discussions. And as for travel cases, I use a Peli 1060 with foam:

 

 

 

Sure it's big, but at least I know that if I'm attacked by sharks while diving to work, my gear will be safe.

You can get something like this locally, for <100 NT.

You could use a smaller case if you used this instead of the DX100:

I am really curious about the Tera player. I wonder how it would sound with some 8.A's...

 

Any Heir owners have one?

(I don't want to de-rail this thread or start any unwanted controversy though. I know the Tera player is controversial.)

I'll be buying that for either my 4.Ai/3.Ai when out & about... I was going to buy a DX100 (too buggy for my limited IT experiance),  so I bought a nice leather case in preparation... to save buying a new case I am having a minor adaption done to the leather-case so I can then put both my WM-Z & the protective case inside without any closing problems (just need a lil bit cut out for the straight headphone connector.

The 20.A, you mean?

An idea I "stole" from another Head-Fier, in another thread I read years ago.

Sorry, I can't remember to whom credit should be given. redface.gif

 

 

Pelican 1015 Micro Case

Dry-Packs Plastic Canister

 

I can even fit in a Sansa Clip Zip. Everything is tight, but nothing is squashed:

I could also use a lot less flac files, playlists, searching, lyrics sheets, network streaming, optical outputs etc... wink.gif

 

But yeah, I'd love to hear the Tera Player, I'm just not curious enough to blow the cash on one. (Said the man with the 2nd batch DX100 feeding his 8.A)

 

Speaking of high quality players, a small Danish audio shop just had a clearout sale and dumped the price on a brand new Colorfly C4 to $430 and posted it on our local forum. It was gone within 15 minutes - bought by a guy who got his RE-262 for $40 in a similar way. Lucky bast@rd...

For the 4.Ai the UE case is a great fit, and since the 3.Ai has the same form it should fit too.  Not sure about Heir CIEMs though, can be much larger and may not work.

From my experience, the UE case fits CIEMs (in general) with TWag V2 and oyaide plugs perfectly, so they shouldn't have any problems with Heir customs too (: love that case.

 

 

Anyhow, are any fortunate folk lucky enough to own both the 4.A and 8.A able to shed light on whether it's worth buying BOTH? I'm grabbing myself an 8.A over the weekend and can't decide on whether to get the 4.A as well (with free wood!eek.gif) - 4.A/4.Ai owners, anyone able to shed light on how they compare to top-tier neutral customs? So far there only seem to be quite a few comparisons to similarly-priced universals...
