I am just using one of these. I don't think there are any particular good 1/4" to 1/8" adapters as such but a good spring internally helps to grip the 1/8" plug better, I have been told.

 

 

 

 

I have been listening to my pair of 8A a lot lately on the V800/V200 stack and I am really enjoying this pair of customs with small ensembles and audiophile vocals. There is such a soothing and relaxing nature to the 8A with these types of recordings. For me it is very enjoyable listening experience.............

Whoa....finally got around to listening to some Audioslave on my 4A's. The 4A's does Audioslave music very very well

I use one of these: http://store.sony.com/p/PC-234S/en/p/PC234S - spring loaded and very, very low profie, sticking out as little as possible from my DX100:

Thanks for sharing your experience with the Violectric stack.  I still need to add the V800, using the V200's builtin DAC for now.  I like having two 1/4" jacks on the front of the V200, but then I'm also paranoid about leaving the volume knob at 12 to 1 or 2 o'clock from a session with the HD800 and plugging in the CIEMs right after eek.gif

 

I also wonder if anyone has had any experience with $149 CablePro extension cables, to add another 5 feet of "audiophile-grade" copper cable to your CIEM cable trail.  Yes, it's expensive so I'm wondering if it's, at all, a justifiable add-on?

Thanks Soren.  So you don't plug your CIEMs in the 1/8" mini jack?  Is there a reason why you prefer plugging into the larger jack (with the Sony adapter), audio-wise?

I'll answer for him as I already asked. To avoid damaging the phone jack when removing it and putting it back to avoid the pop.

Where did you buy it? I'm trying to find one but no luck. Sony US does not deliver outside US. Sony Romania does not have it ....

The second I wrote this I found the little mother****** in Canada.

 

In conclusion, HeadFi brings luck!

 

P.S. ... This was for those unaware of this fact!

Edit: Haven't really seen anyone being pissed at Heir yet and that is a pretty impressive feat on Head-Fi I think. 

 

No negative post doesn't mean there's no pissed off customers. HA does offer great products and I do really like the 8.A but there's resolutions offered that left much to be desired.

Such as? Asking out of curiosity!

      Yes, from time to time, re-fits are required....

 

      Which is not unique to Heir Audio, as there seems to be an industry wide policy for re-fits.

That isn't entirely true though, if you read my comments earlier on in the thread to answer you both. But I am looking forward to the resolution and how they will turn out upon completion. I'll update my impressions when that happens.
