Nice review I'd get them if they were 150-ish but as they are now, they're out of my range....

Thanks, I should have put first impressions to be honest, lol.

 

Fixed that. I do not have enough comparos to make it a review just yet unfortunately. However, they are pretty astounding for the price, and no worries friend, when I am notified of a wonderful price reduction/Sale, you'll be one of the few I'll email it to. :)

Thanks eric! All that's left for me is to get the ostrys and the jvc fx wood series to complete my earphone collection.

 

Ever thought of buying that ostry budget iem by chance ( though you are satisfied with your iem collection).

@doctorjazz 

 

I just heard your tune from Alex Mcmurray..

 

 

with the ckr9s, his voice sounds so relaxing, powerful, and definitely life like. The guitars, cymbals, and bass helped bring the heartwearming song of his...

 

Seriously, you find the best music!

 

Vijay Iyer Trio's song was also pretty catchy, though the change of pace perturbed me when I was halfway through the song, I thought my computer was acting up haha. That slight speed boost actually made me want to dance, but alas, there is a limit to earphone length...

 

so I tapped my foot, haha!

Yeah, something like the Senn 650's, with the 20 feet or more of cable, good for dancing cool.gif
The Geeks and Ray Samuels amp have made me appreciate the Senn 650 more than I ever did, by the way. The Shure 1540 sounds great through them as well, more open/clean in the midrange, open (if that makes sense for a closed phone compared to an open phone). As usual, I struggle with the fit, so I have a set of Mad Dog pads on order, should be here any day, I've read that that helps the 1540 sound even better!
On a different note, I've mentioned my equipment meltdowns...I am bringing my old Linn turntable to someone to repair it tomorrow (hopefully), have had to replace my preamp (got a Peachtree preamp/DA converter that sounds pretty sweet), and, the CD recorder I was using as a transport to feed the DA of the Peachtree died as well. Anyone with any experience on CD transports, or CD/DVD players that can serve as one? Looking not to spend too much with all the other layouts on Gear, have read about older Oppo and some others. Any suggestions? (I know this isn't exactly the right thread, but there are many in Whose Ears I Trust here, would take info on the thread or as PM, thanks)

Alex is great-a cross between Tom Waits and The Band if you want to try to pigeonhole him, though he has his own sound/unique voice.
Iyer is just out there, a post free jazz player...I tried not to go with the most difficult/out there stuff he does, but he does have a strong lyrical streak. Anything can happen at any time though

Got new music on the portables...if I get time between the repair trek to Manhatten, work dinner with the wife, yada yada yada, want to get to some, love finding new music as much or more than headphones beyersmile.png

No posts in 3 hours, wasn't going to post 3 in a row, but since no one added anything, here goes. Think I may be getting to a good place with my phones...started listening to the Thinksound on1. At first I didn't hear what the big deal was...little bass, not as clear or detail oriented as the Shure 1540. Listened on my X3/National, then on the Geek 1000, a bit better, still not blown over. Then connected to Ray Samuels HR-2 and WOW! These cans came to life! Bass, detail, openness, warmth, think my ancillary electronics may cause me to reevaluate everything and may change my mind about much of what I have. The Senn 650's are making a comeback through the electronics, time to pull out some old gear. The On1 is a keeper though, but it insists on being well fed...


OK, Dogwalk Discovery, Power Pop, get those long headphone cables ready, gonna have to dance..

Because I buy everything hyped on here? Lol

I have the KC06A coming in next week, between that, my new woodies, and the GeekOut720, I feeling pretty content right now.

Random obligatory song:

Nah, because you NEED to listen to these...

 

The height of the soundstage is amazing, impeccable, glorious!

 

 

I never heard anything like this, except if I bought some wonderful iem like the asg-2, but now I don't need to! :)

 

 

I swear, sometimes the bass floats with the singer, sometimes it floats by itself, or it is placed far apart from the rest of the instruments (only on the widest soundstaged recordings).

 

 

That and you bailed, you can't bail dude...

 

In all seriousness though, you could say that it's because you do hype, but it definitely is because it pleases me to see other people enjoying this iem, especially because it deserves it.

But I didn't bail! I'm just waiting on a decent opportunity to get them! biggrin.gif I regretted not getting the woodies at $280+

While I do not doubt that these will have a large soundstage, I am quite sure they won't match up to the fx850. These have a soundstage so huge it's ridiculous.

:p Sure.

 

 

I agree with you, that $280 deal was amazing, but there was a deal pertaining the woodies for $80....

 

 

that was even worse... :(

 

And definitely, I don't believe these will best the fx850s, but the height + width of these earphones are actually equal, which is something I never expected. Most of the time, I hear wide WIDE soundstages without having an equal amount of height.

 

 

When you mean that the fx850 has a huge soundstage, from your impressions, you mean both width and height, corerct?

 

Because...

 

I want to hear 11 flights of stairs in my earphones, with these iems, I hear at least 8 small flights.
