Just took the AT IM70 off the burn in station...listening to hi-rez Greg Porter download, just a short time I have them on, but they really do rock. Bass bounces (AT can do bass RIGHT), nice mid/vocal presence, highs maybe recessed (sometimes takes me a while to get a handle on the sound of highs from my headphones), though I feel like cymbals should be more present on a jazz track, gotta hear them riiiiiiiide. Using Comply tips (generally a sign I had a hard time getting a good fit/seal), they may have to do with the highs, need to get back to tip rolling. Really do like the sound so far, though, looks like another keeper.

Good to see your initial impressions on them are changing smile.gif

How are you enjoying the KC06's ericp10? What? You haven't fallen like a lemming over the hype cliff as many of us have? What resistance lol :wink_face:

OK, so I'm @ the show, listening to Audeze LCD3 through Woo Amp and laptop, really great sounding. The guy from Moon Audio almost has me convinced that I should buy UE Customs, A&M 240 at show prices and I save so much money, I'll be way ahead of the game. Trouble is, it's making perfect sense to me, spend $2800 on gear and make money! HELP!!!

Wish I was there. Maybe the fall meet. =(

Which UE customs? Find a UERM demo somewhere there. There has to be one somewhere.

With Comply tips, through A&K 240, great sounding (balanced out, even)...

doctorjazz, if they are %20 off now, they will most likely be %20 off later, it is not like it will be the only time. There's a lot of competition out there. This gives you time to think about it outside of your immediate adrenaline rush and excitement, so more clearly. And also give you some more time to consider similar options.

After hearing some of waynes world's stuff i nearly went out and spent a few hundred $ right away, but took a step back. It's still all amazing stuff, BUT also still available for me to get should the urge arise at any time.

 

Be careful! And hope you are enjoying yourself.  How many people are there?

 

That $999 can  nearly get you the new oppo fullsized :), or the next model soon to be out with cash to *spare*

 

BUT HEY if you want them don't let my ideas there stop you! It's all up to you!

^ yeppp the hype is adding up nicely on those Oppa cans, can't wait to document it. hoho

 

Kinda interested to hear the hype for myself as well but those only like it's $700 to me on a personal level. $1000 is a bit overpriced but they gots to play the TOTL $1000+ flagship price tag thang so i understand. Now if they REALLY blows the rest of the competition outta' the water then it's another story. 

 

edit: and agreed with nick on this one doc, cuz show room environments you can't really judge how the gear truly performs, so don't let them pressure sell you stuff and stand firm. There are just too much competition and new tech coming out right now to settle for some "TOTL" custom that might soon be dethroned in a matter of months. So...... just go with your gut on this one meng.

Thanks all, managed to get out of there with my wallet lighter by only the price of 2 slices of pizza and a diet coke! Really tempting, though, the AK240/UERM combo was killer sounding there (and the customs aren't customs for the show, they bring a set that takes Comply tips). I go through this periodically...the time from Black Friday until holiday sales run out is a hard one, and you can't audition headphones then, just go on reviews and price (Wayne may remember me whining then wink.gif. Shows have the added lure of being able to listen, though it's true that conditions for listening are far from ideal. Heard the Oppo for just a very short time, someone was with them almost all the time, didn't WOW me (but again, not great conditions for evaluating), Liked any Audeze i heard (most were there, listened to them for a decent amount of time). They could do with a bit more high end, but the rest is outstanding. Sennheiser was there, listened to the HD700, HD800, and the IE800. Liked the 700 better than the 800 (but open phones don't do well in a noisy environment), and thought the IE800 don't get as much love around here as they should, they are really nice sounding, not all bass, which was the sense I get reading about them (but the bass IS REALLY GOOD). Think it's the high price that has them judged harshly.
Anyway, I actually did have fun, despite the way it may have seemed from the posts, and, like around the holidays, it's a reminder that I may need to work on this stuff (.....nah!!)
