Btw you don't need any connections, just a huge patience when going through their website :))

Actually, they recently hired a Korean-American that has lived in USA for 30 years.  If you call them up, they will refer  you them him for communications.  My communications was great.  They try to make sure you don't run into trouble with bad impressions so they want your pictures as overseas shipment payments are expensive and it's time consuming to redo the iems.

Well, maybe as my next ciem I can target their products but even though I am a lucky European biatch, I am still a master student and I need money :D Since I got SE5way I am broke, eating quick noodles every day :tongue_smile:

Hopefully starting to be used to a VERY tight fit. I was little worried it will be kind of uncomfortable, but it seems my ears will be used to it after couple of days of regular use. Not sure how other CIEMs are made, but this is major difference in between my NT-6 and UERM. Whole different shape - they use every possible piece of place in your ear to fill it with the earphone. When I put my old UERMs on, it is so different, it feels like they are some small universals :))

 

BTW - Love the sound more and more! :-)

That's a nice shot.  It looks nice with a metallic image inside the glass material.

 

Yeah, it's interesting how both of us ended up with tight fit with closed mouth impressions.  I've done open mouth in the past and it wasn't as tight as the closed mouth.  It kinda goes against my preconceptions.

 

I actually like the tight fit, it doesn't feel uncomfortable, it feels tight though.  I don't mind the additional isolation it provides.

Am I seeing the cross-over points in the dips?  I see three on here, but maybe there one on the bass hump?  I wonder how it would look if it wasn't 4 way?  Would it have a more wild FR?

There is no evidence on exact frequencies where are the crossovers placed. Maybe we can ask Hidition :-) Guess it is the factory secret, haha.

Got my NT6 today.  Initially, I wan't that impressed.  Then I started to notice different things.  I noticed that I can tell DAPs apart more precisely.  Sound outputted by the DAPs were much tighter can clearer.  I'm currently playing with X5 and DX90.  X5 sounds more detailed and clearer, and DX90 sound a bit artificial as it has a U response with pronounced highs, and aire which create a less realistic stage whereas I hear realistic stage with the X5.  

 

NT6 does well with vocals.  

 

One thing I noticed that was odd is that.  At first I wasn't impressed because it had the typical BA sound, but over time it changed.  The sound started becoming more organic and started to notice the vocals sounded realistic.  I don't believe in burn-in and what happened is converting me to believe in it.  Now, it sounds more realistic, less like BA(wait these are BA!), and it sounds like it's picking up more details than at first.  It sounds like the BA harshness is gone that was there initially.  Maybe all this is in my head, but these are my impressions.  

 

Also, the fit is quite different from my 1964 V3.  It adheres against the surface of the ear, my 1964 doesn't do that.  That's why 1964 CIEM it's easy to put it on and take it out, but the NT6 is not as intuitive, but the way it fits feels more secure, and pushes against your ear.

Wow.  NT6 just hit me now, now I hear it.  I'm listening to Daft Punk RAM.  That album sound terrible when I listened to it in the past. wow.  wow. wow.  You guys wasn't kidding.  It clear alright.  It's crazy detailed.  Crazy... Holy s....

Congrats SilverEars. What about bass in NT-6 is it detalied, does it rumble? Mids - are they organic/warm? What about brigthness - are NT-6 bright for you (for example, Ety ER4s are a littleb bit too bright for me)?

Daft Punk - RAM is one of my benchmark albums, I listened to it so many times and I am familiar with it with so many different cans, I can easily put any song and try to hear differences in my setup.

 

I am sure you won't regret NT6s, they are definitely a top tier ciems. My only fear is, I hope the sound signature will suit you. I have no doubts on ciems technical capabilities but if what it produces don't suit you, that can create a problem.

 

Otherwise, congrats with the new toys, you got one of the best sounding ciems in the world.

What kind of signature you have in mind? :) Do you think there is something more revealing and 'reference' than NT6 or UERM? Guess that NT6 shouldn't have any signature, they are meant to be flat as much as possible I hope ;)

I usually accelerate this process by putting my head in the oven for 15mn when I get a new pair of CIEMs.
