Fischer Audio Silver Bullet (modded!)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I didn't think it would happen, but it is with great sorrow that the time has come for me to sell my beloved Silver Bullet.
I've had these phones for nearly two years (exchanged rev. 1. for rev. 2 about a year ago).. and loved every moment with them. To give you an idea of how much I enjoyed them, they outlasted the revered GR07, FXT90, EX600, RE0, and e-Q5 (all among my favorite IEMs). I'm selling the SB because I have enough headphones and my universals get little use with the HE-500 & customs around.
Technicalities aside (which are quite impressive, BTW), this phone has one of the most unique presentations I've ever heard. I'm not sure there exists a phone, to this day, that can match it. It's got a smooth, natural sound and incredibly spacious presentation that's utterly relaxing but quite engaging at the same time. It's one of the least fatiguing & most immersive phones I've ever owned. Joker has reviewed them (quite favorably) in his massive IEM review thread, too.
The only knock with this phone was the (stock) rubber cable that was prone to microphonics, was dangerously thin, & tangled easily. Instead of merely recabling them, I had Brian Goto (of BTG-Audio) make them compatible with removable cables! Now you can use your favorite IEM cable with these phones. Also, I've replaced the stock filters (which came off a few months after I bought them) with the RE262 filter.. this filter is acoustically transparent and actually improved the SB's sound a bit (better balance and clarity).
My Silver Bullet was part of the limited edition "You're Lucky" promo that Fischer Audio ran quite some time back (the back of the housings features a "YL" logo instead of the typical FA logo). The promo allowed those who got a 'YL'-labeled SB to be able to trade their p[hone for another phone in the "FA Fundamentals Series." The promo expired a long time ago but you might be happy knowing you have a limited edition version of this phone, though.
The lovely metal housing is rock solid and looks beautiful. All original accessories (the soft, felt pouch & tips) are included. I will include a ton of extra tips & a stock Westone cable, as well. These phones are pretty hard to get nowadays. Either they're out of stock or are in stock with unreliable vendors. And even if you do find it, they surely won't have sockets for use with removable cables!
