Star Wars version.. tongue_smile.gif They're very handy to have around, one may not use it everyday but for those times when needed they're a life saver. Little like a multimeter. I think anyone into IEM's, tips, nozzles should have one. wink.gif

True that! As I've said before, I originaly bought just to measure cable diameters, but nowadays I have it permanetly on my desk and use it to measure everything up do 20/30cm! It's a really handy tool... smile.gif

Or just post a photo of the bottoms of all the Complys together smile.gif

 

I've ordered T-200. It's the only thing a nearby store has in stock.

It's a pretty inexpensive tool and very usefull for precise measuring! I bought mine from a local hardware store for $5 some years ago (IIRC), and I used it a lot to measure cable diameters and stuff like that...

 

Righto, let me go to my local hardware shop in the next couple of days and see if I can pick one up cheaply...

Would you recommend an AMP for the H100 for use with an iPod gen5? My search shows the H100 impedance is 60 ohms but I recall a comment way back that they were actually 32 Ohms. Does anyone know for sure?

 

I didn't anticipate an IEM would lead me to get an AMP but might acquire one up if it provides a substantial boost in performance. TIA

Don't know how well you searched or where... but my search shows that they are infact 32ohms.

PS. If you're looking for a budget amp I'd recommend the EiiO E11. smily_headphones1.gif

Here's where I read the invalid information...That info is also posted on eBay.

Thanks for supplying the right info! Your specification source is certainly more reliable 

 

I am currently researching the Fiio E11 so that is a good confirmation. I see on your profile you have the E11 and an iPod. I presume they are a good match based on your recommendation?

With regards to correct specs mate it's always best to look on the manufacturer's website.

As for EiiO E11, it's an awesome piece of kit. Been running it since I got it yesterday and have to say I'm very impressed. Battery life seems good, it's highly portable and with great sound quality. In all honesty I don't know another amp at this price range that's this good! Also, it goes great with my 120GB iPod.

PS. I will post a pic of my setup in a bit for you. Just having dinner. smily_headphones1.gif

Here is my current setup:

 

 

700

 

Sorry about the lighting.

Either JDS labs 421 amps work amazingly with them, I have both opamp versions and they're both great.  This headphone really does like to be amp'd.  gs1000.gif

Could you people tell me what exactly you enjoy about these phones?

Because I'm starting to feel like this is a case of the Emperor's New Clothes.

I'm genuinely curious...what draws you to the H-100?

Wouldn't H100 be a nice candidate for custom mold tips?

Well I tried to return to the Rock-it R50 which I loved just a few days ago, but now it just sounds so bland, like a $20 earphone, in comparison to H100. H100 is just exciting to listen to. I'm actually a bit worried to listen to it while walking since the sound is too engaging and I stop watching the surroundings.

 

Surely ain't the case of emperor's new clothes for me L3000.gif

Not very specific. I'm asking what aspects of the sound make you so engaged.

I think you can chalk up the R50 as being less engaging because it undoubtedly has less bass than the H-100.

eke:

 

The h-100 is very coherent in that it seperates the midrange from the bass and highs, none of them leak into each other.  By amping them they become incredibly detailed and clear.  Clarity is at an utmost on these.  With the right tips and insertion/amping these do sound warm enough for me, and I like warmer sound headphones.   The soundstage is quite large, almost as big as the heir 4ai's, and for 130 bucks or whatever that's quite an achievement.  I do think people enjoy the price to quality ratio on these, as I don't believe there's anything even close to the price range that comes close to it.

 

The sound sig may just not be for you...no worries theirs plenty of phones out there.  I do think with burn in and careful attention to amping and insertion they are much more adaptable and eq-able than a lot of people may think.  It might be a slight fuss though if you just want to stick them in your ears and go.  But to me they're more than worth the effort.

 

Lastly I don't think there is anything else out there sub $200 that blends this level of bass response and speed with such clarity.  If there is I'd like to know about it!
