You have to actually get the one with internal mods as well, it's much better!

Anyone else have this problem? I am going into withdrawal! biggrin.gif

You might try using a couple of party hats!

Well, I am travelling in asia during the moment and grabbed a pair of pf viiis for myself.

It's one unique piece of instrument for sure. I haven't seen/heard anything quite like it before. 

 

They aren't quite the detail monsters but they do have some of the best soundstage and imaging I have heard on iems. I find them pretty unforgiving on poorly recorded materials but I don't know if they are just unforgiving or that the unique sound signature just doesn't cope with certain songs. However listening to Pink Floyd's Echoes and Wish You Were Here sounds great, the guitars are very thick and the imaging is phenomenal.

 

Build quality is great, the finish looks very gorgeous. The whole line looks like they are designed more for the eyes than the ears. The cable on the other hand, does not look very durable and is a concern for me; the thin and weak design makes me think they are going to snap anytime now especially when there is a heavy earpiece dangling on the other end.

 

I'm asking if anyone can recommend me some songs or genres that goes well with the viiis?

Just browse this thread, lots of music recommendations for the PFs.

Indeed, going back 40-60 pages there are many links

Thanks!

I might as well add another album recommendation, one of the absolutely best suited I've heard for the FAD 1601 and 1602 / PFs:

 

Liz Green - O, Devotion!

^   Brilliant tracks, James!! EXCELLENT music! Absolutely wonderful with the 160Xs (tried them with my 1601s). Just ordered the album — thanks!!

post #2785 of 3933

So, our sometimes impatient grumpy sparrow couldn't wait two days to find out what extra goodies Liz Green's album had in store for him (he listened to James' links above four times). So, our favourite and always awfully charming fellow HF'er went ahead and listened to the whole album on Spotify — what a beautifully crafted album: EXCELLENT music, FINE lyrics, and, to top it off, great sonics, too. Ms Green has such a peculiar and absolutely brilliant voice — what a talent! Just over 40 minutes of music (unthinkable these days for a new album / CD release), this is most definitely 40 minutes of quality music — who wants 60-74 mins of mostly mediocre / rubbish  / meaningless / empty 'music', or pleeeeenty of filler material?

Thanks again, James!! (Indeed this album is meant to be heard through the 160Xs)

I believe that was another music_4321 (or perhaps another james444!)

Ian, do yourself a favour and get Liz Green's album.

 

 

(Guess Amazon realised how much I was looking forward to getting this album, so they decided to deliver it a day earlier)

Which Comply model is suitable for Fi BA SS?
post #2790 of 3933

sonny, please be fast! Can't wait for the Heaven 6 to reach my ears!

 

Btw, admiring all those wonderful albums over there. Wish they were available here in my place too! Couldn't find the right poison to feed my PF.
