Awesome, thanks! The V's, TE05 and H3's are on my current lust-list. Well, I would probably just snag the H3's if budget were not a consideration. Then again, you have high regard for the V's, and they are sounding like great bang for buck (and a nice complimentary sig to the M200's). I suspect that the TE05's may very well fit into that category also...

Ds seems to like the V's and if the Fostex comes anywhere close, then you'll have to pull the trigger on one or the other.  I'm sure Ds will share some more incite on the V's later in the week and sf will have his say also later on.  H3's are a no brainer for you Wayne since we have similar tastes.  Hopefully the price will drop some or a pair will show up on the fs thread.

Om IEP are currently rocking the Mee clear double flanges. A lot more comfortable. smily_headphones1.gif

For the people that ordered the fostex, will you guys receive the iems this week? If not, I might as well pull the trigger. I only find the heaven V for $240 so far.

I expect it and the V any day now.

Anyone that's willing to try to improve the Piston sound should give it a try.

How did you open them up to get in the nozzle?

Mine should arrived on Thursday. Had to pay $60 for them over here so I was really hoping that they would best the Piston's.

I too want to remove the grey foam from the Piston 2's. does the wire mesh re-attach after? Or are you left with an open nozzle?

The Heaven V are indeed a very nice listen, smooth, have good lows for single transducer, very involving, I found them around $200 but looked a really long time...(not the Aging)

Cool! Look forward to the impressions. How much did they end up costing?

post #21686 of 26063

The phones themselves €45, plus €6 shipping. I guess Tenso will be another €15 or so, and if I'm unlucky some customs tax when they get here - though I'm using Rakuten rather than Amazon, which gives me a better chance of avoiding that. So let's call it around €65, or $89.

You can push the mesh back into the cavity.

final audio design HeavenVAging バランスドアーマチュア型イヤホン FI-AHE5BSB ファイナル オーディオ (2013/4/5)

 

 

get it while it's cheap. (or you could get the non-aging for $20 more, and with a beautiful case).

 

This is a third party seller however, most likely not worth taking a risk, with an additional 340 yen for shipping.
