Well if CE didn't deliver the CE6P it's hard to do the review. you should have said: we've been waiting for months for the CE6P already ;)

Due a strange twist of faith, the hifiman RE-600s I ordered were destroyed during the shipment. 

And I will be receiving my money back soon.

 

I'm not too bothered, I was probably going to send them back fairly fast after receiving them.

 

The good news is, I now have funds for the BA6/CE6p

 

Btw what is up with those names? Is it the BA6, CE6 or CE6p?!?

It was partially explained in Headfonia's review. There will be P and R and who knows what else wink.gif

Sorry about the cross-post, but after posting over in the Lignum BaX cable thread, I realised that this might also be a good place for these comments:

 

 

Just received my BA-X for my customs today ( customs and cable are from Cosmic )

 

I too am astonished at how thin the cables are!

Sadly the pins are too loose in the socket of one of my monitors, so I'm awaiting a reply from Phil @ Cosmic re' this.

 

I really don't subscribe to the notion that cables can make big differences ( or any difference at all in most cases ) but I must confess that my first impression is of a more prominent low end.

I'm certain this is just placebo though, we'll see.

 

As far as noise ( mechanical ) goes, these are WAY different to the other cables I've used.

I walk a lot, paved surfaces, and I hear noise through the cable of my CIEM's.

I hear my feet hitting the ground, the edge of my baseball cap nudging the memory wire, friction from the hanging cable rubbing on clothing and even creaking from the wire flexing ( maybe it's the cable moving in the memory wire sheath? ).

And if I'm wearing sunglasses this also presents additional noises.

 

Usually I consider these noises very minor annoyances that I've gotten used to.

Having used the BA-X cable for around an hour I already know that I wont go back to conventional cables unless the BA-X turns out to be as delicate as it looks/feels.

I have no reason to disbelieve the claims regarding the strength of the BA-X but the delicate feel is going to take some getting used to!

 

Noise from all the sources mentioned above are GREATLY reduced, practically eliminated in fact.

I can still hear my feet hitting the ground, but less so than before.

 

This reduction of 'noise' represents to me the equivalent of a large leap in general fidelity, no exaggeration.

 

I found the cable a little 'tangly' but also found that a bit of a shake undid most of the tangles, not too bad to my mind.

 

It looks like the music model might be less 'tangly' if you're not planning to go balanced somewhere down the line.

 

The comfort is a BIG improvement over what I'm used to in CIEM's, and glasses wearers will LOVE these cables, really.

 

I too think the very short heatshrink cover at the 3.5mm end looks flimsy, but maybe the very flexible nature of the cable ameliorates this.

 

One additional cost to keep in mind is that you're going to need to spend some cash on a new, smaller CIEM case to prevent everything rattling about in the newly freed up room in your old case!

 

Now I just need to figure out what to do about the loose fit of the left monitor plug, I trust Phil will sort me out though, he's a legend.

I keep mines in the little pouch inside the case, they really do take up such little space now, I can't imagine what micro shells with the new cable are like in real life

Hi guys,

 

anyone needed to get in touch with CE / Phil lately? I have exchanged a few emails with Phil three weeks ago or so but in the last two weeks I have not heard anything despite trying to arrange to get him my SD2s for them to see if they can re-shell. I am aware it is a v busy for them with setting up their London lab and all that.

Yeah sure, even today

Probably up to his ears. I was in conversation briefly with him today and as has been suggested, he is very close to getting the UK operation up and running. Try him again dude, it will likely have just been overlooked.

Just curious as to why you feel the need to get the Sd's reshelled into customs?  I thought one of the main selling points was the fit and finish of the monitors?  Unless you are one of the unlucky ones that it didn't fit?

Because I smashed the left hand shell during indoor wall climbing....

Now that's what I call "a good reason"

Hi, I'm now looking for some info about CE, but slightly confused.

 

Are CEx same as BAx?

 

I get there is R-eference and F-un edition of models, I assume that is just for 4 driver model and in future will be for 6 driver?

 

I'm confused, since sometimes it seems there is E, P, C, M version?

 

For order, should I go over their webpage eshop, which to me seems missing some possibilities or somehow contact CE directly?

 

Thanks for response
