Not that the foam really matters, but it makes a convenient prop for when I have the GO on the Slacker. XD

I'm one of the Super-Early backers, so I guess that makes sense that the packaging will be a prototype of sorts.

But I do have the KS carry case with the Geek Force Logo on it. Which is nice... XD

Did you back any of the later ones? Pulse, Wave etc etc?
With my original blue GO, I was sent a neoprene carrying pouch too. It is quite handy indeed!

I also backed the fully upgraded Pulse and entry-level Wave 32.




Ooooooh, Smash Bros' list of composers is released!

^ that's a beautiful remix of the original




Got composers who did Tomodachi Life and THE IDOLM@STER JUPITER. XD

Hm, bowei, the 8C sounds okay with the same setup and tips that I used for the UERM, but the timbre seems off to me; it adds a slight metallic tone to things and the bass is a bit lacking in presence. The frequency response seems uneven so far. The soundstage is actually larger than I was expecting.

Right now I'll assume it's the tips though. The demo UERM had a longer barrel length, so the Comply tips fit comfortably on that. The 8C has a pretty short one in comparison.

The design is absolutely stunning though.





A quick listen to the K10 with the same setup and tips: it seems to fix the problems I had with the 8C. XD

^ yes those are two drivers you see right under the faceplate on the right

The UERM was the best IEM I heard out of the Roxanne and UE18 that were at the AK booth. Some people like the other two units moaarr. But if you're like me and like balanced presentation. Then I'm sure you'll find something int he K10 and 8C.

But the UERM, I found it to be extremely balanced and similar in sound to the Kaiser 8 and 10s. Vocals were forward, clear, and maintain great neutrality. This is especially thanks to bass that isn't anemic, or one that would qualify for a car-audio show. The bass just works, and it works well in the UERM. And lastly, I found the texture in the bass to be above average with good background texturing thanks to it.

The K10 had a similar balanced sound, but this one has a very lucious and intimate vocality to it. Worked great with female vocals thanks to it. It had great vocal extension and prominence and was very realistic and natural in its vocal reproduction abilities.

The bass is a bit 'close' to the vocals so it isn't as spatial and ther were times that the lows interefered with the mids, but overall it has great acoustic performance.


The Noble 8C had a similar deal. Foward vocals, good clarity and naturalness. However its vocal range and mid range instruments are a bit more 'crunched up' than compared to K10. There is a slight peak in the upper mids making it slightly revealing there, but it has some issues when it comes to how detailed it is in that range. A bit sharp but not unbearable, and to many people, they won't mind it.

The 8C lacked in sub bass performance but there was no distortion despite this. Overall it had clear instrumentation and a good balanced sound sig. It was slightly dark but not overly thick so it was very enjoyable.


the K10 and 8C as compared to each other. The K10 was more smooth, and had stronger bass than the 8C. The K10 was also more spatial, but didn't have as clear vocals or natural vocal tone as the 8C did. However the K10s did boast better 'room' for the vocals and they were also slightly darker and hticker than 8Cs.


Only problem I had were that the two had near perfect roles that almost could have worked. With what I heard, the 8C would have been great with mainstream and K10 with high quality audio if they switched the bass. The K10's bass and slight issue of comming into the mids would work great if given to the 8C for mainstream use, and the 8Cs balanced bass would work for the K10. If they switched this, they would have perfect roles to work with.
Hm, I can see your points now. I'm blaming the tips for now, but I guess the word I'm looking for is that things sound like they're from a "radio;" the stereotypical can/hollow-like midrange without much weight. Mids are kind of the staple of music for me. XD

Good stuff. And yeah, Noble IEMs have always awed me with just how gorgeous they look.

A wizard custom K10? That's the stuff of (wet)dreams for me.

Speaking of IEMs, I went to Jaben HK to try the ASG2, UE900, IE800 and some earsonics IEM. Maybe it's just my mood but I wasn't too impressed by any of them.

Only one I liked from the list was the ASG-2, and that's for it's hard hitting bass. I liked the Ref1s better

Soo.... All they have to do is just run up to the bad guys and cast transform? Wtf, then why'd you waste so many episodes "fighting"?

Because without fighting scenes they would have to implement an actual story. And that would be way too much work.

Meh.

No matter how it good it supposedly is, I wanna read manga, not light novels.

So have I, but it kinda sounds like a over the top melodramatic kinda thing, which I don't necessarily feel like reading right now.

Nah, they'd just have to throw in some fanservice and fans will come rolling in. OP characters, Magical girls and ecchi, the (un)holy trinity, only thing missing now is a masco-- oh wait.

Legit.
So they can vaporise any bad guy that's nearby, but not the ground or surrounding area, nor produce plasma that radiates outward, or vaporise even the transforming person itself.

Lame.

Isn't that what you're supposed to do with scientific papers?

No! It's peer-reviewed! 100% true.
Don't deny it, scrub!
The guy who explained it had a lab coat on. Makes him 200% right.
