Or my own personal subjective bias towards self-gratification.

But that totally doesn't exist in the audio world. wink_face.gif

(I'm running through a FiiO E11. Maybe I didn't volume match everything as well as I thought I did...or maybe it's a pad difference. I have the COBY pads.)

 

I've got a Sansa Fuze Rockboxed with a FIIE E11 that I listen to while I wait for car repairs.  I don't get near the clarity, soundstage, vocals,etc, etc compared to my home gears listed in my sig.  Not close by a long long shot!  There are so many little tweeks that I have done, hardware and software....I am way beyond what I once dreamed of, and I am still finding little things that make a diff!

I'll try the PreSonus Audiobox I have. 

One thing that does make a huge difference is well-made Italian food. It can make your life so much better. Happier listener, better sound quality.

EDIT: Wait? I said E11, didn't I?

Shoot. I meant E10.

Cash, my modded S500's have the same soundstage as your protracted Somic's, very spacious and airy, with excellent clarity in the mids, tone of instraments and vocals very natural, imaging puts everything in the correct space......I don't listen from any portable devices though!

 

How do you know that if you don't have the Somics, yet?  Or you already got them?  Did they arrive that fast?

I think he read the protractor thing I made in the Somic thread to show how I perceived the soundstage.





M
aybe that can be affected by volume, or amp, or individual...something. Iunno! I think his HA-S500s are pad-modded too, so that'll change things.

EDIT: Plugging these things into a "real amp" (the closest thing I have, anyway) is really paying dividends. Bass is noticeably punchier.

In a bit of bad news.  It looks like the vendor we got our Somic EFI pros.. Dont have them in stock? How do you post that you have 5 sets on your ebay page and not have any in stock.?  They also mentioned an increase in demand. Lol. The headfi effect. They don't have enough workers to make them? Was the explanation and have no idea when they can get some Pro models to us.

 

My reaction is. They have 2 billion people and they can't get workers to make some headphones? Wut? I think it might be a small batch of phones they are making and then all of a sudden all these folks want the Somic EFi-82 MTs. Lol. They got their first big order and they aren't ready for it!  Someone dropped the ball here.

I think you meant the e11 unless you can run the e10 via usb host.

I'm going to e-mail the eBay seller I bought them from and see if they can get their supplier on board for some EFis/PROS. They've been really cool through e-mail communication, and I'm certain that they like money, so...


About how many people are interested? Which model?

I have a tube amp, and rolled tubes for a couple of years.......I now have two sets of the same Mullard tubes recommended to me by an Audiophile.....he said if I try these tubes I will never tube roll again.  Boy was he right, I sold about a dozen good quality NOS tube, and recouped $800 about six months ago.  Punchier bass from a "real amp", is an understatement.....i could go on and on........................

Considering the Pro model is the older version and more costly. It seems those are actually discontinued. So it will have to be them MT ones. I would just email them to get a bunch in stock.

When I looked last night, there were 9 sellers with the MT's on aliexpress.com, at less than $50 shipped!

My "amp" is a Presonus Audiobox USB. They usually run about $60 used from Guitar Center, $110-ish new. It's more of an audio interface than anything. 

Nothing too amazing, but it's a huge step up from the FiiO, which isn't bad to begin with. 

I can't even imagine what your setup sounds like, cute. Woah. eek.gif

If you want to go through Aliexpress, that works too! Just let me know if you want to go through eBay so I can see about getting them back on there. I've never used Aliexpress, but it seems pretty legit if you do your research.

Plus, it isn't like anyone would counterfeit these, anyway.
 

  1. They're kinda ugly
  2. They're not Beats
  3. They're not Beats
  4. They're not Beats

That word is key, just like a white unicorn no one has "seen" cute's set up if it even exist. Maybe it's all in his head. So on that note PICS NOW!!!

I'm gonna buy one anyway lol. I wanted to try them but always stopped by the monoprice's US limit! Now they're everywhere on ebay! Even shipping from Europe. YAY!

What can you tell me about the TDK MT-300 sound signature? Do you have them?

 

I fell asleep with the 8320's last night no problem... I woke up with tractor tire marks in my ears, but no problem lol!

 

During the day I wear the MT300's  hanging down - easy to insert, get a good seal, sound great! At night in bed they can be worn over ears and they then sit fairly flush in the ears and are pretty comfortable (and they sound great!).

 

As far as their sound signature is, I'm useless at describing it, but this is my take on them.
