Might be worth looking at the C3s then! Same sound signature, though less drivers, for lower cost. Though not many reviews around for them.

Probably I'll grab 2nd hand ones from a head-fier , saw one in the sale thread , but still currently considering .

I think its been mentioned that if you buy the frogbeats from a prior user if you want to transfer the warranty over to you you'll need to email them about you buying the item.  There is a fee though to transfer the warranty to another user and refit.

Anyone know what's going on with their customs page? It seems like the entire page is gone. 

 

It's been around 6 weeks since they've received my monitors for refit, so I hope I get them soon.

 

but then again, I'm playing the waiting game again, since they aren't that responsive even after that public apology. (1 week since my email)

The page is still there. I just went in.

So I went ahead a bought a 26awg SPC cable from Ted at HPL and I have to say its pretty good with the C4's yo. Lol it took me a week to figure out I had the pins fitted backwards. :P

 

The vocals seem "bigger" (correct term?), the bass seems a slightly less forwards, and the treble picks up about 1-2dB (maybe even 3) compared to the stock cable.

Hmm turns out that chrome doesn't work for it. I tried FireFox and it worked

How big of a difference did it make compared to the stock? Shelling out $90 on a cable is still pricy for me.

I've got one of these cables too. Just waiting to get my C4's back from't shop (I sent David some comments about the poor and totally not neutral sound I was getting and he had his enginners retest them). If the cable works as you describe I will be a happy camper indeed.

 

So what orientation is correct for the pins? Is it dot up top or at bottom? Ta.

so new owners of the C4, how do you like your CIEM? :D this thread been quite dead in the last four weeks :<

I felt that there was a noticeable difference. I'm not trying to play it up, but *once again* the vocals seem more effortless, "bigger" (if that's the correct term) and there seemed to be more space between sounds that are panned left and right. Plus, the slight bump to the treble that I mentioned previously. Well, thats how it sounds to my ears anyhow.

 

Is it worth $90?... maybe. I'd say definitely yes for $60 or less tho. But try for a used one off the used forums if wanna play it safe, you could prolly get one for $60 if not $50.

I put the dot facing up at first, but then I reached out to Ted because I was feeling underwhelmed and he said he set the dots facing down. So yeah... it makes a difference - the orientation that is.
