When you saw his impressions where you tempted to just go, "Screw it, let's see how many drivers I can shove in this guys head"?

It is rather interesting that this topic is being brought up today....

 

As on this day, BKK Kid got an e-mail from an unhappy customer.

 

The complaint was....  

 

The cable was caught on an object, resulting in the IEMs being pulled extremely hard, so hard that the IEMs were ripped from the ears, face plates popped, sockets la]literally pulled out of the IEM housing

 

The complaint was the sockets were too tight, and should have "gave way" when that much force was placed on them, rather than the shell being destroyed.

 

(I guess the thinking is, the socket/pin mechanism is a safety feature for violently pulled cables)

 

 

As for recessed sockets should be used on the 8.A....  (offering even a tighter fit)  the answer is.....

 

There is no answer as Recessed sockets can't be used, not unless you have extremely huge ears.

 

There is a trade off, 8 beautifully layed out drivers, or just 8 small drivers used, just to get to a certain # of drivers in a shell.

 

I opted for 8 drivers that when put together sounded great, granted they took up a lot of space.

 

The same with the IEMs as well....   Which is better, a small housing that can fit most people, or a big housing with recessed sockets to protect the pins?

 

I went the small way, with the hope that customers will take great care of their gear, as much care as what goes into the building of them.

 

 

Accidents happen, I know that....   but in 10 years of IEM/CIEM ownership I have yet to break a set that I built in any form or fashion. BKK Kid on the other hand has broken a set of 8a's that I built for him while we were both living in Thailand.

 

He placed them in his pocket without a carrier box = crushed shells.  

 

 

Any how, the point is, take care of your gear, and it will take care of you.

My ears are probably big enough to fit those recessed pins ;). At least from what I remember there is quite a bit of room left in my 8As shells :). They make all my other IEMs looks small. Even the 1Plus2 which are huge are made to look small next to my 8As :P.

HOLY £$%^, damn thats big biggrin.gif

Finally got the 4.ai I ordered, took them on a 3 hour train ride, I think I had a smile on my face the whole time etysmile.gif.

 

I didn't think portable could ever sound this good, and since I had to travel light, they were straight from an iPod classic. Not to mention very comfortable for long sessions.

      The 20 driver had 4 Bass drivers within the design (Two pairs of DTECs) coupled with 8 mids and 8 highs

     Sinocelts CIEMs required 3 times the average amount of acrylic material used to build CIEMs.

I'm no Sinocelt, but my 4.A was quite a bit larger than the 4.Ai - and this pic doesn't even really show it so well due to the angle.

I agree with this. When I first heard my 4.Ai I thought to myself," Who knew something that is so small could sound so good?"

post #6735 of 7980

I got to demo the 5A today. I was surprised that it doesn't sound much like my 8A at all?! It sounds more similar to the JH16?!!
