Congratulations, Chris! You were already supreme in my book. This is just belated acknowledgement.
This thread is indeed a special fraternity/sorority.
Thank you sir, and yes it is!
Ha! It's true!
This thread is special. Glad you're here.
I did read it and I meant to comment. I thought you were spot on, and the review was an asset to this thread on a fine earphone. Glad you're enjoying them!
Excellent. I love how the FAD stuff often-time trumps the popular stuff. I want everyone to hear the Heaven line-up, but then I like that they aren't crazy popular.
Looking forward to more impressions.
Very good review, Ridleyguy. I didn't like the Heaven IV when I heard it but that was the same day that I didn't like the FI-BA-SS, generally was having a lousy listening session, then perked up my ears at the TG334 (slightly sloppy bass notwithstanding), and then was amused and amazed by the PF X-CC. My mood can make a big difference in these short listening sessions and both the Heaven IV and FI-BA-SS deserve a revisit.
I am not sure that I would describe the iPod Classic as a warm source. It has a limited dynamic range (par for the course for 1 Vrms output) and rolled off treble but it is otherwise fairly neutral in tone. It has low THD from the line out and is a good portable source. I like it.
