Sounds like you had a fun day.

I'll quote Canadian rapper, Classified and say, "You can never take yourself too serious." It's a mystery to me what he meant, but I think (in times of dazed drunkness) that I get his drift. I'm glad you did too.

Thanks for the recommendation.. will probably look for it this week. I've just started getting into the whole K/J pop and anime OST side of music.. so far it's fun.. I've found and enjoyed so far Outlaw Star (beautiful vocal/poem-istic tracks) Naruto (pre-shippudden tracks more than post) Chobits, Harumi Suzumiya (your avatar!)

edit: sorry to get side-tracked from topic on hand.. so.. on topic: when or where will you be making your next appearance Shigzeo? (btw, SNOW was 'the' Canadian rapper for me.... lol)

As an anime fan, and a music lover, I too enjoyed this read.

It's not that many. I'd guess between dental, hearing aid, the office and factory, plus all the support they have, it's 30-40. The number could even be smaller than that. The number working on customs and hearing aids are together and they are fewer than 10.

Thank you for the comment. What is it that is most enjoyable? As a writer who writes to an audience, it helps to know what is helpful.

Thanks for yet another great read shigzeo. To me what makes your writing so good is your ability to mix writing skills and humor into the dry numbers that nerds crave for. This makes it highly enjoyable and entertaining as well as informative to read your work. 

 

Keep it up.

Well, gee, you've got me all read (sic) in the face. It was a pleasure to tour fitear and it has been a pleasure to see what other headfiers think of their stuff, not to mention of my often poorly edited stuff. Truth be told, I can't afford an editor now. As anyone who writes knows, editing your own stuff is a worthless endeavour. And my time... pretty much 6-7 days a week at 14 hours a pop between Studio ADS, ohm-image, and my patchy writing career. It is so nice when people take the time and effort to correct or inflate me.

God, I am still waiting on the stock for tg334!! Really wish fitear could speed up their production a bit...

Maybe you can provide them with the seed money for more investment into hiring and training highly skilled, highly specialized workers... It'll cost you a lot more than $1350 though, methinks.

... 1350 is expensive enough for IEMs! If they can truly hire more people and began industrial mess production, I believe the cost would be a lot lower so as the price.

Hello. This is very late. I understand from my conversations with FitEar that they are not keen on catering to the bottom of the heap. They have a brand image, a stable staff, quality construction that arguably is the best in the custom world, and hand made earphones look better than anyone else's hand-made earphones.

 

A custom earphone is either a luxury product or a professional tool. It is not a toy. Some companies have developed their earphones like toys, and that is fine, but FitEar are not a Toyota, they are more of a Ferrari. They are not a Trek, they are a Guru. Hand made, specialised, and full of pride. That may or may not be your cup of tea, but anyone who has tried one (sound like or not like) can likely attest to their workmanship that really isn't rivalled. 

 

Now, I'd prefer them to be able to do artwork and have more cable options, but, just like Ocharaku, I'm fully glad that they do things their own way rather than blanket the market with as-cheap-as-possible stuff.
