Those silver bullets have had my name on them since the first time I laid eyes on them!

Very tempting but hopefully someone else will take the plunge.

Wow, Google did quite a job on that one... I especially like: "Wait, are you Tyrant?"

It seems they're actually black, which I like much better.

Damn that's a good price for the S2s from Amazon JP. Do I get them as an upgrade for my Carbo Bassos, shell out the extra for the Onkyo IE-HF300 or get something else..

 

It's not that I don't like the sound of the Carbo Bassos; in fact, I love the sound signature as it has just enough bass for me, but it's build quality that leaves a lot to be desired for me (Driver flex pissing me off, cable seems a bit flimsy etc.). I just want something with a similar / the same sound signature but better quality sound as well as improved build quality.

 

That's the good (and bad!) thing about discovering so many good IEMs; I can't decide which ones to get!

That review was brought up earlier last month and kova4a mentioned that the unit reviewed was a beta version, so I presume that the final production units are actually silver.

 

I've come across some brief impressions from some Vietnamese sites as well, but I can't read those either. :( Have fun with Google Translate if you wish. :D

 

At least there's some nice pictures, and it does seem like they mention it as dual-BA/dynamic configured ("Thử nghiệm sơ bộ cho thấy, chiếc tai nghe với 2 driver Balanced Armature và 1 driver Dynamic này tái tạo chất âm rất giàu tình cảm.").

Lol we all know you are looking for an upgrade to your Bassos as you've mentioned it like 20 times now.

Man! Those are tempting... I haven't even bought the S2 yet! This hobby is driving me nuts!

I apologize if this has already been posted, but here is an interesting review of the Onkyo ES-FC300 out of the UK:

Those DUNUs look awesome. If they could just get the price down a bit and be more widely available, I'd probably bite.

 

I also just bought the Somic MH407 (a161p type rebrand) for $60. Once that comes in, I can give an update on SQ. I didn't see any impressions on it here, but $60 is an excellent price.

Are we actually sure the Somic is a rebrand of the A161?  The impedance and sensitivity specs are very different.

Only one way to find out. I just don't have the A161 to compare it to.

Just thought I'd mentioned it again for good measure ;)

 

That statement could apply to almost anything; the CKN70s have been mentioned in this thread over 20 times, as have many other phones. Nice to know I've got someone paying such close attention to my posts though, albeit counting incorrectly.

Personally from what I have been reading/hearing from our esteemed peers, the S2's have wonderful SQ especially if you are amping them. They would certainly be a nice upgrade for you, and for their approx $120 total price, would be excellent best bang for buck. Again though, you would probably want to be amping them (anyone chime in if I'm wrong about this).
