I wonder where xb90ex falls in this list in terms of bass quantity/quality despite being 1/2 the prices of most of these iems.

Nice work sf.  No wonder we haven't heard from you in a day or two..

thats nonsense.  i ve been buying zu cables for years now and mini to minis for portable applications mostly.

i wrote sean casey, founder of zu casey to suggest that it was possible head fi members might be interested in

an even better zu cable (only the entry level mission was available as an ipod mini to mini connect.)  he wrote me

back thanking me for the interest in them and that was happy the missions were being used in a new way.

zu cable is changing their web site and probably just in the cycle of restocking and re pr for their cables.

glad DSnuts wrote to zu cable.  Sean Casey has always been a straight up gentleman and businessman with me

i cant imagine he would use this as opportunity to gouge head-fi members. of course i could be wrong,

Mark Twain said, "trust everybody, just cut the cards"  im hoping the mission mini cab;es reappear on ebay also, my

Xis should arrive soon and i need the zu cable also!  cheers! btw, the upper zu cables are fantastic improvements on the mission

and i still hope they create an upgraded mini to mini cable!!!

That's good to hear after all that criticism. A $200 cable is still way beyond my personal budget. Of course, if other people have that money then that's fine its their choice.

i just wrote again to sean casey, prssident and founder of zu cable and urged hiim to make the zu affordable mission to mission cable is available

to head fi members on ebay.  i hope he is cooperative and will do this as a good idea businesswise and as a service to the head-0fi.com community

now that zu cable swede "discovered' by us.  the more expensive cable will still blow away the mission, but is designed for a specific headphone, and not sure it would work with the X1s anyway.

Nice comparison sf!!beerchug.gif

I tried three pairs of the exact same Earsubs you have and they all had massive channel imbalance problems.  Guess you got lucky.

Rather awesome write-up there Sf - great work! Btw, Nick deserves about 95% of the credit for you getting those Lethals, so kudos to Nick. I'm a bit crushed though that those Lethals have somehow managed to dethrone the mt300's in your books... tongue.gif

Anyone know if the onkyo earphones/headphones ( I think its the same cable) use a proprietary connector or is it some standard system that I'm unaware of. I mean they emphasize the replaceable/removable cable, but the cable costs $51 for the regular and $80ish for the 6N one....according to ebay anyways.

I hate being indecisive but I'm still waiting on more impressions and such like of some of the newer IEMs so I can decide where to go from my Carbo Bassos, whether it be the CKS1000, IE-HF300, Fidelio S2 or perhaps the new Carbo Doppio when they are released? I like the sound signature of the Carbo Bassos, but I just want something that is better (For the lack of a better word). Better sound, build quality etc.

Lethal EARSUBS 5557:

A little gift sent from our brothers up North, this $10 IEM is no joke. 

 

These EARSUBS are also Total-phile worthy material 

 

So it looks like our Canadian brothers are upping their game in the cheapo discoveries so WATCH OUT nutman!!!

Really appreciate the time you spent on that entire post and the pictures are tops.

Totalphile is perfect. When you say non-fatiguing treble it's not like it's missing,  it's just not piercing. Sort of at that perfect point for me. Amped with some Amygdala  or other high bitrate electronic for instance a beautiful thang

FOTM whatever lol unless that means Fing whoa...Off T'get More, Could these have been what Zardak was talking about SF?ph34r.gif

 

BTW These appear to be selling under a different brand for 50 euros shipped. ( Xears Maestro M700Pro ) Also the CSL 610 and Nakamichi 800 look similar. Same  14 mm  driver specs and exact metal build ( yes the pictures there the shiny black housing is metal ), just a couple different tips.

 

Lethal T5555 and T5556 models I find have a very similar sound also but slightly more forward presentation due to housing differences ( tapered metal still ) thin cloth cables and smaller bass ports though somehow it is still as excellent.

 Just talked with my musician pal the other day he had his black versions seen above out for an hour long run and said they stayed put the whole time and he'll be using them for this from now on. Seems to like them better than the MH1C I gave him, can't blame him there!

You should have seen wayne's world's reaction when he heard his Lethals the first time ( BTW  wayne sure..I'll take the %95 IF you take off another %45. Where'd some of that funding come from my mang? hmmm?wink_face.gif)

Good old XSCargo againetysmile.gif which means Lethal is no more so grab while you can.( <= ATTENTION CANADIANS near an XSCargo  - not in their flyers at all. )

Don't stress it nick, didn't take as long as my other more trollish write-ups, the truth is that those pictures took longer. ph34r.gif

It just might nick, it just might, but he was talking about headphones though. Quick go check if these mofos make cans as well, dun dun dun mystery solved!!!
