I'm adding this to my Amazon wish list for the holidays anyway though. wink_face.gif

When will FiiO RC-SE1, be in stock? Amazon doesn't have it, Buydig is OOS, Sonixelectronic is OOS as well.

 

I need them for my UE900 :).

Hi Nineohtoo, 

 

Talking about fiio RC SE1 :

Quote:
  "My pair is cutting in and out though, and I'm not sure if it's because of the sockets, since my stock cables have been completely fine. Considering others have mentioned questionable quality control with these(one of the wires looks like its insulation is cut), I'm just going to send them back. "

 

I have put the fiio RC SE1 on a Shure se425 and experienced sound interruptions in the left ear while moving my head. after a closest inspection of the connector here is my finding : The tiny central pin in the connector (on the cable side) could be a tad too well centered or a tad too thin and thus be subject to micro interruptions because lack of stiff contact in the micro tube of the earbud side.

With a thin tool i did put a pression on this central pin to off-center it a little bit (perhaps a tenth of a milimeter, do not off center it too much or it will not re enter in the micro tube again). after reconnection, it seems it has stiffen the connection and i no longer have micro interruptions.

 

Just my two cents.

^That makes sense. My pair had been fine for a while after getting a replacement pair from Shure. Unfortunately, one of my cables snapped near the jack last week. Thankfully it still works, but having that piece of wire jutting out is a little annoying and I've been way too busy to go through packages and boxes stored in my closet to find out if warranty will cover this(bought my pair from sonixelectronics' ebay store). 


But besides that cable breaking, I've been exceptionally happy with them and how they changed the sound. I've compared to my friends SE535s, which are noticeably better all around, but considering I paid about a fourth of the price and can use the remaining difference to purchase some desktop headphones if I wish, I'm more than satisfied with how the two perform together. I feel they cover a wide range of music for me and think the combo is an exceptional value for the price that makes me hesitant to invest in anything more. As for microphonics, they're only an issue at very low volumes and during lulls in songs. So it's never a bother when I'm sitting/standing on public transit, and hardly any when walking around. Though I do wish it would have lasted a lot longer as I've been doing a decent job of wrapping the cable in a circle and or using the case after every use.

I agree with you. At the end i do not like the sound of shure se 425 (too stiff)  and stick to my older se215 that is less analytic and more fun to listen to. (relaxed, spacey and more physiologic bass). With the fiio cable, the bass are kept in their perimeter and the treeble is a little liberated. + they are compatible with an apple iphone case (this is why i bought them primary) , unlike the original shure cable. I wonder if the shure se535 is far from the 425 on the bass department. What i can say concerning the se425 is that they make Lou Reed "New york" album sound acid and Metronomy last album that has a very nice analog sounding stiff and agressive too. The forefront mids are stilling the air of these recordings and they sound claustrophobic unlike se215 that let the music breathe. On the other side, the se425 extract a lot of details of the signal and could help to understand complex orchestrations. For analytic ears only...

Hi, 

 

I just checked every online(North America) dealer you have listed on your website for the RC-SE1 and no one has it in stock. Can this be purchased directly from Fiio or do you know when they will be shipped to dealers? Thanks

Funny, I did the exact same search yesterday and contacted Fiio via market@fiio.com.cn and they offered to sell directly for $31.99 plus shipping which can either be $5 for post or $22 for DHL.

Thanks, I'll try that route and hopefully they will offer me the same option. I purchased a pair of Shure SE215 yesterday and I'm already getting shorts/loss in music this morning. I'll also be exploring my other option of going to Shure for a replacement.

After owning these JH13pro for over six years, my stock cable finally needed replacing.  Decided to try the FillO replacement cable (same price as stock).  Wow, what a difference.  Didn't realize how bad the stock cable was.  The FiiO RC-WT1 really brings the midrange out and makes the treble smoother (takes the edge off) and bass tighter with greater punch and impact.  Soundstage and details improved also.  Everything much smoother. I'm sure the Moon Audio or Whiplash are superior to the FiiO but pretty happy with the FiiO.  Maybe someday I'll try Moon Audio.

IMHO i've tried both with my JH16 too and i must say fresh stock cables aren't lousier than the fiio cables. I feel that they are on par. When  first got my customs I was immediately in search of a cable the would improve the sound significantly. However when I tried the fiio cables, there wasn't much of a difference. Most of the cheaper cables were slightly better if not on par with the stock cables. Weren't worth the investment. However as time passed and the stock began to oxidise and turn green (if you got the clear cables you would see it). The stock cables became green really fast like within 3 weeks. So I later went to try the fiio cables. Compared to the oxidise stock cables, they definitely sound better. And definitely the best value for money replacement. Mainly because compared to the stock it did not turn green at least of this current time and thus being able to retain its sonic qualities. Its slightly more expensive than stock but considering you wont need to constantly replace it to maintain the quality of audio it worth it in the long run.

Hey guys, they sent me a replacement cable, rather quick I might add, which came with updated strain relief. You can see in the image where my old one broke through heavy use.

 

 

Hopefully this works out, as I think I only had my last one for a few months before those wires snapped.
