I really don't know why these don't get more attention on Head-Fi. IMO, they are one of the best in-ears that I have owned. I first didn't feel that way, but as I now have probably 400 hours on them so far, my impressions have changed greatly. They do truly take a couple of hundred hours to reach their potential.
I wear mine over-ear using the large Sony hybrid tips. Both the comfort and seal are excellent. The expansive and natural soundstage must be heard to be appreciated. The synergy between the Cardas and Tera-Player is exceptional and they seem to be made for each other. I can literally wear them all day without fatigue.
I should unsubscribe from this thread so the temptation goes away, yet I keep torturing myself. Damn upgraditis...
These aren't cheap enough to buy and hope the fit and isolation are good enough and I can live with the cable, but there's no way I'm going to get to demo them to find out. Unless there's a UK based head-fi'er with a burnt in pair who's having an ear operation who wouldn't mind lending me theirs for a couple of days? I can dream!
