I might have to break down one of these days?

I have the Gratitudes, the Trumpets, and the Pistons. Have to say I've been a bit busy, haven't sat down to do A-B comparisons (see previous posts about missing the X1 deal)...may take until the weekend, try to do good comparison (my Gratitudes are replacements, my daughter "liberated" my old pair and took them back to college with her, not really burned in...burn in station currently occupied by Shures, about 2/3 way through its kazillion hour burn in, alarm set to let me know when it hits a kazillion).
Got FAD HEAVEN coming any day, Om seems to be lost somewhere on the way to my house, have to contact seller.
more later

I'm pretty happy with my monoprice 8320 now, how does the piston compared to the 8320? Is it as good or even better?

Tempted to get myself a pair too.

They look a lot like the KEF (not a good thing), the link doesn't take to a source to buy them, links to other accessories.

psychoacoustic Be placebo is a topic of research of the person who has written "The Whole Truth About Beryllium Diaphragms."
Because any beryllium synthesized in stars is short-lived, it is a relatively rare element in both the universe and in the crust of the Earth.

The article is from 2009, and this is based on the content in loudspeaker compression driver diaphragms. It is very much outdated, and the weight and dimensions of an IEM driver are MUCH, MUCH lighter than the drivers they are talking about. .6% of a CD could easily make quite a few 50%+ Beryllium IEM drivers, which is still great.

Not even close. The Piston is light years better, and I still love the 8320.

That seems like an awesome price for the IM70. Should I jump on it?

Looks like Monoprice will be offering a Studio Monitor Headphone for $55 soon. At first glance, it looks like an ISK or Takstar OEM headphone.

I keep burning them.

 

So which tips are best for the Pistons?

Sony Hybrids, Complys, or dual biflanges. They tame the bass a bit and make it smoother. The stock tips are terrible.

I use the Radio Shack Auvios (large green tubing for my ears).

Don't have the piston's but +1 to Auvios. They're my favorite tip set for the IM70 & VSD1.
