I am extremely tempted to try these out. I actually dismissed the review because I figured it would be far more expensive than it is, but at $40 I want to give it a try.
Can you sleep with them on?
Same here, I just can't walk outside with the frankenbolts sticking out.
Not too sure about sleeping but I can say going into a music induced trance while sitting is an extremely likely possibility. Now as far as try...according to that ugly little guy from Star Wars fame, there is no try only do, so order the R1s and I promise you that you won't be sorry.
They are quite large for that. Best I've found for that activity is the PL50.
There should be a warning label on these for us metalheads. I listened to Overkill's Wrecking Your Neck and I did :(
Dang, wished I would have tried that before I sent mine off.
I'd think it would have the opposite effect though. The E11 bassified and warmified anything I paired it with -- the last thing the R1 needs.
Without using bass boostify how did it boostify the bass? I can't turn on bass boostify with my R1s or it's just too much.
...Because the E11's stock signature is of a warm and slightly bassy one.
I actually thought the R1 improved a bit because the lower end tightened up and the bloated midbass was reduced, I mean de-bassified.
