If I ever work up the courage to try customs again the hy3 peaks my interest more than the 4 tbh.

You figured out why you were having problems, didn't you? Something about a flap in your ear?

 

HY3 has great bass impact that only a dynamic driver can provide. BA4 would be better in other respects though, like imaging, treble, etc.

They also widened the end of the mid/treble bore to create a sort of "horn" to increase the treble a bit. Indeed it seems to sound less dark/veiled but of course I can't directly compare the before/after so I can't say how dramatic the difference is.

 

The new "horned" bores:

 

Old case (top) vs. new case (bottom) - the new cases come in multiple colours:

 

Old vs. new pouch:

Good for you man! The shells look really good too :)

Those monitors look really nice, but isn't this the new case?

 

:D

IMO ultrainferno is right. According to the facebook page of CE new cases looks exactly like the ones on the pictures posted by Ultrainferno.

P.s. Mine BA4R should be finished this week:D

I like the smooth PVC lower one that Marley has, the nylon one is just too common.

 

I'm upto "Final Finishing" now, so fingers crossed they'll be in the post soon winging their way into my sweaty paws.

Agree with seven1816 about the cases:) but the nylon one wont look all scuffed and stuff after long term use...

Ever since I used copy in order, the player won't scan more than 3-4 artists from the sd card :0

 

I had no such problem when the files weren't copied in order.

What's this about? :D

 

I can't wait for my BA4F to arrive, Phil is surprising me with the design, I have no idea what it will look like. I'm thinking Steam punk/Junk :cool:

Haha, sorry wrong thread XD 

 

It's about the iBasso DX50, it worked fine without copying the files in order to the sd card.

 

And that's a pretty daring move!

Oops, you're right, it's not the newest case ;) so they went from nylon to PVC back to nylon.

 

And I spoke too soon... I think I'll need one more refit to thicken up the right piece even more... I'm confident it will be right this time

True, but not sure I can be bothered with the refits and such again :P  Not fair on myself or Phil (especially if they are busy) to go through that again :)  How do yours seem now?

post #3088 of 4287

Is there a timeframe for HY5 availability?

Probably not. Phil is working on some new models but I suspect they are BA-based, probably the BA5 and/or BA6.
