Cosmic Ears - new CIEM company with great prices (including Hybrid designs!) - Page 246

post #3676 of 4142

anyone know where the new ce models are listed? i just had a look at their site and the models listed there still follow the old 'ba' system...although the ce4p is supposed to sound different from the ba4s

The new line-up will be online when the new site is launched. I am pretty sure you will be able to get the identical sound the BA4F now has, I wouldn't worry about that.

AFAIK, old BA4f=CE4E. There should be a model similar to BA4r, but the new one may have a little bit different tunning (I don't know anything about this).

Thanks Tom, always enjoy your input in the CIEMs technicalities.

Yeah, thanks Tomsky.

This wire really seems like it's going to answer all my gripes re' CIEM wires.

This alone would be enough to get my attention, but the Headfonia review news has really upped the ante!

Just out of curiosity, what were your gripes with CIEM wires?

Comfort is the biggest issue IMO.

 

Memory wires add little in the way of convenience and make packing 'phones away a little bit more of a chore.

Stiff cables like those found on the UE TF10/SF 5 pro's and some others are a pain to manage when rolling them up, and trying to unroll them.

 

Twisted cables look very 'Hi-Fi', but also add slight inconvenience when handling, and suffer from contact noise.

I agree with the reasoning behind twisted or pleated cables, but my favourite cables are the fixed ones on my Phonaks.

They're flexible and rubbery, making them quieter than many cables. easily managed, tangle free, memory wire free (came with optional/removable guides), and best of all they're COMFORTABLE.

 

I also appreciate the thin cross section as I've recently become a glasses wearer.

 

I like the look of the flashy aftermarket hand pleated type of cable, but these new cables from Cosmic look just as cool, but in a much more understated way.

 

And I haven't even touched on the connectors!

Did CE ever release a 5 driver model or are they jumping straight from 4 to 6?

post #3685 of 4142
I think they will do the 5 later

agreed! except i kinda like the feel of braided/pleated wires...always thought they made cables a bit more flexible (i hate cables that refuse to straighten and stay all messed up with kinks) but i dunno to each his own.

Has anyone been able to contact Phil in the past few days?

I've been looking for an update on my BA4 order as its been on "impression detailing" for over a week now and it doesn't look like it's going to make the quoted 2-3 week production time.

For people who've already had their CIEMs sent, how long did your orders take?

I won't worry too much about it. Sometimes the updates are slower than the actual progress. I know its hard, but try to be patient. Phil doesn't like cutting corners and compromising quality just to speed things up.

Dabboo, my BA4r were made in October 2013 and it took about 6 weeks for Phil to make time (timeframe counted from the date of delivery of the impressions to Phil until the date of receiving CIEMs by me).

It seems a bit hard to follow what is the current lineup. Is the BA4R, a current model or upcoming?

Would love to try them out.
