Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Very light, very portable and very good balance of overall sound with the Arrow

 

providing a bit of customisation with its myriad settings.

 

 

 

 

How are those Onkyo?? I saw those but not shure about them, do you mind sharing?

Pretty good job by Onkyo. Tyll seems to love them too and most importantly they compete with $300 cans but can be found for $130.

Sound wise they are on the slightly warmer side with a nice clean sound and they equalize well too. Bass is punchy, mids a tiny bit recessed and shimmering treble. Overall they can compete with the Sennheiser Momentum, Beyer 1350 etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the EQ settings work with line-out, doesn't that indicate that it's not a "true" line-out? Wouldn't there have to be some internal functions controlling the signal?

I am not sure, but definitely changing the volume does not work either. Although for most people this is not an issue, but if the volume is changeable on the lineout, like on the ck4+ or dx50, I am never sure about what volume is best. In the end I take the loudest setting.

I've never had the pleasure of hearing a pair of Onkyo headphones! All I can say is that I love my Onkyo 7.2ch AVR :)

 

Beautiful looking headphones too, I might add.

They are so good, I am getting the IEM too. Onkyo did get it right the first time and the detachable cable is simply marvelous.
Overall a product that seems properly researched and developed before being introduced to the market unlike other companies where you are the beta tester.

Same rig, different day. Removed the O rings and added some dual lock. Still not sure I like it.

 

Edit - Not sure I like the dual lock, not the rig. The rigs very pleasing to my ears.

Indeed they are.

 

Very fun and detailed. If the mids were a touch more forward they would be just right for me. However, from my limited experience of different IEM's, there the best I have tried.

Wonderful immersive soundstage, makes the presentation quite a fun involving experience, they also layer very well. I have some pop tracks they did very well bringing out the hidden nuisances. They were however just a smidgen warm for my tastes. Enjoy them.

I have a similar setup. The m8 out to the tu-05 driving the th900's is a joyous combo.
