What are the CIEM's you are using with those.....are they your Heir Audio 8A?

 

No, They're not from Heir Audio. Here's a picture of them next to my 8.A's:

That too. But really must first understand what the mod is/does.

 

Thanks both.

 

Have a look on the Red Wine Audio website it explains what they do to Mod the AK100...might help

Well, technically $250 is overpriced. Modders in Korea do it for $50, and modders in Russia do it for $15. $65 sounds fair.

Essentially, the mod bypasses the 22ohm resistor and it's components, which leads to a cleaner sound without the impedance issue(good for iems).

Yet RedWine did the work to discover it and it does take a couple hours from in to out to do it right and test. They also direct connect from the amp to jack and not just bypass the resistor. Paid for labor isn't cheap and if there's a failure, who covers that elsewhere?  You're likely out a DAP. It goes into the price. If I'm in the States, I would just give it to them if I want it done.

I agree...I believe Vinnie Guarantees his work for 12 months. I would be very surpised if at $50 dollars you get a guarantee (although I may be wrong)...even less likely at $15.00

 

If I was modding my DAP I think I would want to know that if it went wrong due to the work carried out I could get it repaired / replaced. Expensive otherwise.

My latest and greatest iteration.  My buddy Demon Fox told me about this Arrow 3G, saying the bass was the best ever................and he was right.  I don't even have it turned up to level two boost on this and loving it.

 

iPod Classic---->Arrow 3G----> Ultrasone Edition 8
