you would think the cable would come from the opposite side of the housing... common sense for comfort.

Sorry for taking so long to answer but I used the time to try through all my available tips - sony normal, sony hybrid, meelec - and listen for any improvement with the highs. Sad thing is: I couldn't find any. The problem is pretty consistent over all tips. With the larger meelec tips you use I also had the problem that they sit a bit (really just a tiny bit) loose on the noozle and keep getting stuck in my ears when I pull the unit out.

 

So I either have some kind of defective unit or my hearing is just screwed. The test for the first one would be to listen to another XB90 or have someone else, who knows the XB90, listen to mine. Sadly, that seems quite impossible to do for me.

sorry that you have that problem. the only explanation I can think of is that your pair is just a lemon :|

Nothing for you to be sorry about. Let's look at the bright side of it: this way I at least have a good argument to continue my quest for the best sound for my ears ;)

 

P.S.: couldn't resist... tongue.gif

Maybe because we are younger (under 30) and are more sensitive to highs? But the sony's are the only pair of IEM's that I have had this problem with. What's the return policy on these?

post #5541 of 26068

This looks to be a good deal and I would jump in if I hadn't just ordered the 90's off of Ebay a few days ago.

Here is something that you can do to give those Meelectronics lose tips a tighter fit:

TIA.

 

I have a e10 as well. I'll try to post some impressions/comparisons to both if/when it actually arrives. !_!

Depends where and from whom you bought it. In Germany for example there is a law, that every professional seller has to take back items bought over the internet in 14 days after the buyer received them. If you bought via ebay you should check the return policy of the seller you bought from.

Thank you for the link. I have some spare time the next days, so I might give it a try.

Got my little ele dac, it needs to be glued as the board rattles around a bit, no biggie just a niggle.

 

Sound wise colour me impressed. Sure it's more spatial but not only that, im picking up much more detail and it's also a very subtle sound, allowing me to pick up the small details that my av amp would otherwise miss.

 

But what i especially love is how it's just as detailed at low volumes, as it is turned up.

 

With my denon id have to whack it up before it got going, not so much with this i have a nice bit of diana krall on, and im hearing everything and it's all in the right proportion.

 

For the money dsnuts is right it's a steal, not to mention it'll save me switching the amp on.

 

I have noticed bass is a bit light, but it's nothing you can't eq for.

Huxley comes out of no where and tells it like it is. Ha glad you are enjoying this one. I am curious to eventually try this.

This SMSL Fort it is called is more of a delux model. Uses the same chip that is in the Ele but an equally small round housing w volume nob as it has an amp section to it..Kinda cool if you ask me. Like that volume nob.

Well im really digging it so far, great for some nice relaxing music. If i could ask for anything it would be more warmth, but hey at this price you really can't knock it.

 

Ok just plugged it into my P4 warbler, oh now that is nice, it's added a bit more layering, oh yup im really liking this combination.

 

Im sure it'll get better the more my ears adjust to it.

The volume knob thing looks nice and clean.

post #5550 of 26068

yea looks awesome, would like to see one next to the Ele.
