I agree totally!!! Just put the cable on..and only take it off when upgrading ur cable or upgrsding ur phone...the connectors in my eyes are to much of a liability...and they are not designed to be used regularely..

better is to have a short adapter thats aways connected to ur phone with click ends (xlr for instance) and then just switch away.. One cable after another biggrin.gif

I think that IEM pins wear out the fastest.

I just received the Silver Poison CIEM cables from Project86. This is a loaner set going around the USA only. Contact Project86 if you are interested.

Great! how does the silver poison pair with the jh16?

post #4089 of 9347

It is a beautiful pairing. The bass is very solid and I love the mids. I am currently listening to Norah Jones Little Broken Hearts. I love it when the music floats outside your head.

 

BTW, my LOD is also Silver Poison so I have the full benefit of Frank's work going on here.

Very nice longbowbs, the Silver Poison is no slouch, like I said if I hadn't heard anything else I would be more than happy with it.

Glad your digging it, I'm also digging the LOD..........That rig is Fully Toxic....

It really is a sweet and nicely portable system. I have a two week Boy Scout trip coming up and it'll see a fair amount of use.

Does Frank do Fit-Ear Cable now?

post #4093 of 9347
Me too like to use a silver poison for my Fitear to Go F111. Hope he does it.

Thanks for taking the time out to write the review, Stan, it was a great read mate.

 

Switching cables too often can and will loosen some sockets and wear out the pins, especially so on CIEM's and not so much with many headphones. I have changed the cables on my Audez'e/HD800's thousands of times, and neither have any issues.

 

I used to always worry about damaging the mesh on my HD800's while removing cables, or getting dirt on the mesh when i first got them, but over time, i have gotten used to how to remove then, so it's not as daunting now :)

 

I do currently have 2 Fitear cables on order, although i am not taking any further orders on these, till these 2 customers confirm that everything works as it should. I don't have a pair of these IEM's myself, so unable to test the cables myself. Please check back in a couple of months.

 

I will start going through PM's and email later this evening.
