^ is that with rush?
how much did the rush cost?

post #10699 of 129748

Yes including the 120USD for the rush build.

 

Build time was five days instead of the usual 4-6 weeks. 

post #10700 of 129748

4-6 WEEKS!?!?!?! 

UE takes only 10-14 working days for a normal build....

post #10701 of 129748

Small upstart VS one of the biggest companies in the business.

I was actually quite interested in heir audio a while back since few members here got a pair but I can't find a demo for them in local stores.

So in the end I just auditioned the whole JHA and UE lineup. BTW did you know that both UE and JHA was founded by Jerry Harvey? and Westone actually worked with them years ago. That's like 1 person started the whole IEM industry.

No audiophile stores near where I live. Everything I buy is a blind purchase. triportsad.gif

 

Didn't know Jerry Harvey founded UE, though I know he designed the TF10.

That sucks, I'd never have been able to buy anything.

How did you get into audiophilia in the first place?

What anime is the girl with the sign from? I choose everything smily_headphones1.gif


I was soo tired i can barely remember anything


ThT is way too expensive man!!! $705??

The history of IEMs is kinda sad and hilarious.

Jerry founded UE. Got parts from Westone. Good happy partners. Then Weatone SCREWED UE over and as they held some key patents almost ruined UE. However ue got back on its feet and bought by logitech. Then jerry got ousted and founded jh audio.... What a mad love triangle!

Meh, I wasn't all that impressed by full-sizers in this price range.

I've yet to try the LCD's but have auditioned the Hifiman Planar-phone lineup. along with HD800's and T1's which is also in this tier.

And I really like the customization options in CIEMs, finally will I have a pair of IEMs that is unique and belongs only to me etysmile.gif

 

From what I've heard Jerry got kicked out of UE.
