Cough.

Saw the auvio tips. But only in America?

There's the vmoda that lee brought up as well I think.

Anything else?

I'm honestly a bit worried about them changing things on the updated model as the Nova N1 leaves a lot to be desired in the UI still and the touch pad it not that great. I stll prefer the Studio V UI and access of music over the N1 :(. Plus you take into the consideration the noises they've induced into the chain via the SD card reader, the screen and the slight hiss inherent to the music :(.... Still I do hope they get this right but I'm skeptical at this point....

Subscribed! Time to look out for these bad boys. One of the very few hopes for high end universal IEMs.wink.gif

It is not a hope. It is here, and it kicks ass :)

lee730, do you happen to know if the IE8 stock tips will work on the 1plus2s? I'm just trying to see if I should get spare tips given the selection issues with those provided?

These have had a lot of ear time since i have had them with me and may i say, im starting to understand them. The bass is as amazing as ever, i mean, there really is little to complain about. The mids do no longer seem so thin, maybe because i am starting to appreciate where they are meant to be in the music and maybe also due to a bit of burn in. For certain though i do not think they are thin, they are well positioned (for the most part) and oh so detailed and the midrange balance is just great to my ears, it really shows some unbalance in other earphones such as the Musical Fidelity EB-50 that i painfully wore in the gym today (cant risk it with these can i ;) felt so un even, the tilt toward the high mids so glaring towards me. Treble i have made little comments on so far because well it offers sparkle, an nice air and is not fatiguing. So yes you could say i really am falling for the sound as i just read that back and it looks like i am struggling to find faults. Maybe the midrange could just have a bit more presence, i get the whole stage thing but some times they do feel like the vocalist is a bit too behind, not thin like before but just a bit weak at times. Also the bass can really spring up in some songs but perhaps a tad too much, i dunno thats just my preference but technically the bass really is jaw dropping. The signature is certainly U shaped to my ears at this moment and the bass is clearly boosted, especially towards the sub-bass and the treble more forward than the mids.

 

I do however find the cable stupidly microphonic, unflexible and very chunky for portable use, it is thicker than my HiFiMAN HE-500 cable for example (much better quality that it however).

 

Also i just wish they sat nicer and more flush in my ear, like the Heir IEMs and the UE900 do. They feel just a bit bulky in my ears and also the small bump causes the slightest amount of discomfort.

Thanks for the straightforward impressions. Great info.

With more time i certainly want to delve into comparison as this will properly help with me explaining the sound as i am not too impressed with the above explanation. Its hard to explain its unique ways, its not like your ordinary top end IEM, thats for sure. They are earphones that require some getting used to time.

What iem does it's signature resemble? From your impressions I'm thinking GR07 with smoother but also emphasized top end. Or does it have more bass than the GR07?

They're very unique in subtle ways...in short part full size headphone in terms of head stage, space, and ambiance....part speaker in terms of immediacy, PRaT, and openness...layers, separation, placement are all top notch...

I too feel Gavin did his homework matching the cables....my symbiote SE doesn't do the 1p2 justice...the stock silver suits it better...I'll try to elaborate further in due time... ;-)

I only needed a short listen and don't know the specifics of break in on them but the mid bass should lessen as they open up and sound more extended both directions while becoming faster or seemingly quitter between notes. Haven't had a silver cable before but have heard they take a couple hundred hours to run in themselves.

I think they could work although the IE80 stock tips never worked for me anyways (on the IE80s even). So my V-moda bass tips did the trick for me.
