post #106 of 868

Are their any comparisons made with well known headphones?

 

Such as the HD650 or HE400? 

 

The thing I have against closed headphones/IEMs is the very unnatural timbre. How is the timbre on this IEM?

 

I am so spoiled with the HE400s...

Ok after trying hard to establish any meaningful conversation with David over the past 1 month, I can say that he takes at least 1 week to response to each of my email. So, if there're any major issue, the delay can be disastrous. Gone are the praises the early adopters had for their CS. This could easily be the worst communication I have had against any ciem maker so far. The only encouragement I can get from this is that at least he did reply the emails.

Yeah I also get the feeling he used to be quicker to respond in the past. :(

Not excusing the lack of comms, but it's fairly apparent that it's because he is currently snowed-under with fulfilling the many special-offer orders. That's a heck of a lot of work for a small start-up.

I remember the CS when he wasn't busy. We exchanged over 60 emails so far, and about 30 were about trivial things like color picking. I guess in the December/Jan period, he started taking 4-7 days to reply to an email. Most likely, he checks all of them on Monday only.

Couple of things to ask - whats the estimated turnaround time for non-rushed orders?  Also, looks like I'll be stuck w/ my impressions and not shipping it out until David answers...

5 weeks is standard now for non rushed orders.

David should just sign up on Head-fi so he can answer questions in this thread instead of replying to everyone's repetitive e-mails...

 

I know not all of his customers are head-fiers, but at least some questions would be answered and archived so people don't need to keep asking the same things.

Frogbeats has a Head-Fi account. I'm not certain how often it's used these days though.

 

If there is interest in an FAQ, we can probably get one set up just from the questions and responses we've all gotten individually.

I doubt you'll see David post here, what with the strong-arm tactics used to close-down the earlier Frogbeats thread.

I have the c5's and the hd650's, the hd650's (for me at least) are warm and lush melt into the distance headphones, the c5's are brighter in comparison the one thing that blew me away as soon as I started listening to the c5's compared to the hd650's is the 3d soundstage and depth regarding instrument placing the hd650's are a bit vague for me in this department the c5 you can accurately place instruments on a stage left/right and back also stereo imaging is something else.

I really wonder how the C4 vs C5 would sound like.

And today is exactly the 35 day mark. Hopefully I'll get some sort of information today.

If all goes well I may be getting a C5 purchase in to compare to the C4.
