Isolation is really good. Not quite as good as my Westone UM1's were, but I was using the foam Comply tips and I've never gotten isolation like that with anything besides earplugs.

 

Shotgunshane, fantastic job with all of this! I get my right earpiece back tomorrow morning (after a refit) and I'll try to get an impression up, until then here's a couple pics of my Merlins from the week that I had them

Still loving my Merlin and just wanted to give them some love.

 

Has there been no new impressions of the Merlin?

No new impressions that I've seen.

I thought I'd ad a new pic of my portable rig, since there haven't been any new Merlin impressions lately.

I should receive my Merlin's in less than a week so I'll do my best to describe and compare with my portable and desktop gear.

Here's my portable rig... The 8-wire TWAg/TWCu really opened up the Merlins. The mids/treble is sooo crispy it's nuts!

Was going to purchase a Hybrid Cable from Whiplash Audio but decided against it and purchased the Silver Poison from Toxic Cables due to their excellent customer service and the idea of silver/gold alloy as opposed to a silver/copper hybrid intrigued me.  I'm hoping that someone will be able to stack them against each other without certain biases such as price expectation bias etc.

@ValentinHogea- thanks for the pic. I'll add it to the front pic post when I have access to a full size computer. Nice looking cable btw.

I do hope I can hear some Toxic Cables product someday to compare with the hybrid, but for now I'm really enjoying the hybrid paired with the Merlin.
