The crackling / popping isn't the "normal" noise from plugging them in, but only seems to occur when I adjust the volume pot. The static noise seems common on stepped pots (happens on my KGSS), but this is new for the UHA-6S. Also it's far, far in excess of something  I'm comfortable with in terms of volume. Could definitely harm some IEMs...


Sounds like your volume pot could be going then. Send it in and Nick will take care of it. The guys generally pretty good with his customers.

The EX700 seems to be okay-- though in the left channel there was a bit of noise afterward. Sounds in order otherwise.

What could be the issue? I'll be sending it in, I suppose.

Speaking of which, the Float QA is going back to QUAD Musik next week. I sent an e-mail to them asking if they had an idea of what the issue could be, since it seems rather widespread, and they said they'd have a better idea once they examined mine. Hooray for being a beta tester for such a costly item. Anyway, they said they'd cover all shipping expenses thankfully.

My luck with gear seems to be off at the moment. ;____;

That's horrible to hear MF. Hope it all goes well and you can share more about in this thread. Also I seem to remember about the TH600 out of the blue. This one question isn't exactly aimed towards you MF: When is it coming out? I'm kind of interested in it. Hoping that it's the same sound signature as the TH900 only urushi-less, but then that wouldn't make much sense IMO.

Another question: when is the IE800 supposed to be released? It's been ages.

Do you mean the Sennheiser IE800 or TDK IE800?

The Senns.

 

I guess they're out now? Where did you order?

 

Though reading impressions, it seems like maybe I should give them a miss...

Well, it took me long enough, but the first two sections are out on my CIEM retrospective. It's not as fleshed out as I originally conceived, but it's what I could do with the time I have now --- hopefully the diary regulars find it interesting.

post #2933 of 21761

After reading james444's early impressions I'm starting to wonder why Sennheiser can't seem to find a happy medium. Either it's overly bright and thin (HD800, HD700) or it's boomy or bloated (IE8, Momentum). At this rate I'm guessing I should keep an eye open for a good deal on a HD650 learn to live with the Sennheiser veil and call it a decade as far as Sennheiser is concerned.

Nice writing style and photos Tom, could be magazine quality with some more photos, you could send a copy to Newsweek or The Economist, just an idea.

Or at the very least maybe hit up mike from Headfonia and see if he would be interested in maybe throwing up some of your thoughts. He's done it before with various head-fiers who post on here on a regular basis.

haha thanks guys. I'm just trying to have fun with the prose. The analogies aren't all that consistent; I'm sure MF could walk all over this if she tried. And no such luck with more photos. I just stuck in two of my more artsy-fartsy photos during that trip to highlight the mood of HK. I think audio is difficult to make photogenic.

Het tomscy2000, considering you're in Asia have you heard the Sony f807. I'm rather curious about the sound signature on that player.

post #2938 of 21761

Sorry, I've actually heard very few Sony DAPs... redface.gif

I don't know, I wouldn't give any intellectual property to hedfoneia if it was me.

 

 

They're a little too commercial, review-ish and bland for my liking, it seems like everything has a luke-warm positivistic review "this one has excellent black levels, quite good depth, not so much height, with a tonal focus on the low treble" means [and looks like] very close to zero to me, no passion, criticism or any imagery which hits home.

 

How about the Fiio E6 "amplifier for the masses" yeah, if they want to ruin their sound quality, lol, maybe I just got a chip on my shoulder about the E6, and the Yulong U100 which sucked and I decided to return.

 

I think Headfonia stems from an Indonesian forum called audiophile-id.  In that spirit, I'm sure a collective effort could turn journalistic writings by Tomscy, Ardgedee and Romy into a seperate website or blog. 

 

It could be called otononikki.com.
