was it that one?
Perhaps, though I'm trying to figure out which other appreciation thread it could possibly in, or maybe if I imagined the whole thing...
I have views on reviews... if a manufacturer gave the headphones to the reviewer (as keepers) expect a biased view... if they got sent to a reviewer just for a review expect a half-decent review but with a bias to that reviewers preferred brands... the reviews I am interested in are from the people who actually bought the headphones especially if they have the same 'source/s' as you/me.
I made my decision after reading Way's 4.A findings in the Walkman Z-Series thread (plus emails), the WM-Z has a huge soundstage & SQ to match so his findings were important to me... Sorensiim's findings with his DX100 also helped (I'm interested in getting one of those but I'll await the MK2-version)... what really sold me on Heir Audio was the in-depth emails I had with The Wizard over CIEM's & IEM's, when a founder goes out of his way to explain the SQ, Soundstage & the pro's and con's of 'customs' that for me is the biggest factor hence my purchase of the 3&4.Ai.
always remember... your ears are not someone else's.
Right, but by the time your ears hear the IEM's (if you didn't have a chance to audition it beforehand), you won't have a choice to return them even if you don't like them. Reviews only go so far, but the more reviews there are, the more they can be trusted. That's why objective determinations of SQ are important, like frequency plots. And if they are not being released...then you have to pose the question, why not?
