 You will probably waive any insurance or security on shipping, but it saves the big ones$$$

I doubt CDJapan would have that option might be against their business legalities/ terms

I'm sorry but I'm not sure. I haven't heard of Rinkya either. Are they similar to Tenso?

Tenso does have that option if you look for it.

Alright, thanks. I've only used them once so couldn't remember or didn't notice.

Listening to the Pistons with comply foams, nice tight bass, clear mids and just lacking the very last smidgen of the upper registers. Powered by a Sony 828 and the Fiio X3 and the E12.
Overall I just ordered a second pair.

Caught up, busy night here in Discoveryland. Got Westone W40 burning, Dunu on the way, Heaven V seems to have arrived in New Jersey, should get to me soon,bit overwhelming, to tell the truth, post some more about W40 soon. Not a night and day difference between it and W4, but definite differences last I listened.

The pistons have foam stuffed inside the nozzle...if you remove them then the rest of the sound will come out 😊...by the way just ordered the fostex te05😈😁😄😜can't wait to get them 😈

If you didn't pay for the registered mail shipping (costs extra), you won't get a tracking number.

 

It is also chinese new year. It's basically a 2 week vacation for the country.  If you ordered after it started, your order may not have even shipped yet.

I have a burning (no pun intended!) question.  I keep reading about burn-in.  Without getting into a debate of whether it does anything, my question has always been whether it has to be done all at once, or broken up?  I know that listening to them normally doesn't get the same burn-in effect as loads of bass and/or white and pink noise. 

 

But does it have to be done all at once?  Particularly my question is for a carbon nanotube which is a stubbornly hard material that requires longer burn in, or so I've heard.  If I set my computer to bassdrive/white/pink for 12 hours while I'm at work and then get home and use them normally, and repeat the process the next day -- am I getting 24 hours of burn-in or does the nanotube "revert" back to original and I end up getting less than 24 by not doing it consecutively?

It doesn't revert back so quickly, so you do get 24 hours of burn-in.

I only clock at 400hrs on the nanotube but it does smoothen out the sound and makes it nice ....i think the whole point of burn is to loosen the diaphragm from its original stiffness 😎

Here is a new IEM from AKG, it is a tiny little thing with a 5.8mm driver almost rivaling the Aurisonic Rocket for size. Using the stock tips this goes unbelievably deep into the ear disappearing, using Sony hybrids I use large tips and they are note quite as deep in ear.

Sonically they are a bit V shaped but still have very good mids. They have a very nice sound stage which is all the more impressive given their size. I want to let them burn in for a couple of days before I give a final verdict on their signature though. For the $50 price tag I think they are pretty darn sweet though. I think I will keep them and do a comparison against my Aurisonic Rocket's then they come in in May/June. I expect the Rockets will slay them build wise and probably sonically but for $50 these are punching way above their price tag in my opinion so I might be surprised.

I bought these because of how much I love my K545 headphones. These are not quite as good as the K545 but do have some similarities already so will be interested to see what happens with some burnin.

very interesting. how's the cable? any comparision against others micro drivers? like the Ath-ckn , or JVC FXD ?

I don't have the FXD80 any more but from memory I like the treble on these better as well as the midrange. The are close to as good as the Monster Trumpet (again from memory) but more comfortable. Here is a picture of them beside my LG G2 stock IEM's another smallish IEM that is massive in comparison.
