I'll look in the chinese thread for the answer, but how's the isolation on the POD's?

Isolation is great on them. They are fabulous for commuting, that is if you don't mind the look of two tiny jet engines petruding from your skull. I think they look super dope, but others who prefer the more subtle variety won't care for them.

You mean something like this?

 

 

Cool - I'm in!

 

And that's great that they isolate well. They might be good gym iems :)

Oh by the way I recently read on another thread that the Doppios are starting to take off in Japan for some reason. Sold out in a lot of places is the word. So for guys that own them. Consider yourselves lucky to own a pair.

lucky me!!!  the singles are reported to be dropping in price, get a set of those while you can, love em!

Those crystal clear TTPODS don't just look cool, they are SOOOOOO damn comfy as well. Similar design as the JVC FXZ200 but is much much lighter/ has better fit/seal. Very consistent and zero hassle whatsoever with very good isolation to boot as well. One of the most comfy/ EZ to wear IEMs i have tried so far.

 

And compared to these monster milk machines.....

... best way to wear them for me in order to achieve proper fit/seal without the stupid longggggg arse ear guides getting in the way. :triportsad:

 

For those that still own the Brainwavz R3 try this method out with some soft double flange tips meng. Sonically really good stuff and deserves some belated hype tbh.

 

Just heard from Audrey, R3 has been updated with memory wire removed ;)  Should have it soon for review...

Replacement Altone 200 in. Some of the best instrument separation I've heard for under $120. Lots of clarity with very good sub-bass. Need to compare it the Doppio (and first Altone 200) when I get home. Impressed right now. They seemed to have fixed the bugs and problems I had with the first one (bad cable and bad cable connection are two glaring problems with the first one). More to come.

Lol, sounds and looks about right ;)

 

The TTPOD's isolation is good, but not as good as the Tenore(great in isolation to me) in my opinion. I would say it's above average though. Assuming the SHE3590 is average and KC06 below average. The fit is a little shallower, more comfortable, and they just STAY PUT compared to the Tenore. Build quality really sturdy too; they would make fantastic gym iems in my opinion with their bass and all these other factors taken into account. Hope you go for em' Wayne!

The altone200 replacements came in. I'm guessing many of the pre-orders were a dud, including mine. New impressions will change the way you guys feel about them. They are incredible now that I have a pair that work.

Haha look at them! Those things were terrible in the way of fit, honestly the length of those guides was simply not on.

They'd hit my shoulders and dislodge. I believe the newer batches had it removed.

So,  my replacement Altone 200 most definitely has more bass (especially sub-bass) than the first one. And the highs seem to be a bit brighter, but not too bright. I hear more clarity and instrument separation. The sound is fuller than the first one. And there's a chin slider with a better feeling cable. So I think T-Peos has been reading and tweaking this product.  The bass is glorious now and makes the head phone sound like a vintage hi-fi system with wonderful refinement. The clarity is not on the level of the Doppios, but I have started the burn-in process. I believe more clarity will come out of this earphone, but it's not far off. Clearly one of the best values of any earphone under $150. This is a winner (using stock blueish transparent tips with red insides.

Was browsing fleabay and I landed on this dodad. I have to admit it is one sexy amp.

Anyone know anything about this company. This amp looks like it is in direct competition with Fiio's stuff. Might be even better. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2014-new-Cayin-C5-Stylish-Portable-HIFI-Audio-Headphone-Amplifier-/121401846940?pt=US_Home_Audio_Amplifiers_Preamps&hash=item1c441d2c9c

are those specs accurate

"Rated output power: 800mW + 800mW (32Ω load)" :blink: Nearly a watt per channel ? That's up there with C&C XO2 territory.

 

Wonder how much of the 11 volts it is able to throw at your cans

Wow.

Thanks for posting this beauty up DSNUTS

 

This might fry some of your iems to small scorched raisins if you are not careful/

I am seriously tempted to try out this bad boy..It should be fine for Iems on low gain.. With Fiio coming out with some new portable amps and this thing popping up on ebay. I never heard of this company though they seem to make some high end tube amps http://cayin.com/ Distribute through Hong Kong. Tempting in deed.
