A couple of tables at a cafe full of portable gear, hifiman-901, AK120, tera player, ALO amps, pico slim, vorzuge amp, the entire venturecraft range and others....Lots of universal and custom in ears - the latest Shure, several variations of fitears......an array of cables...and so on.

 

I found my Hifi-M8 held its own against the AK120 fairly well, but the Hifiman-901 nudged it out by a slim margin when used by more revealing in ears.

 

With my ATH-ESW11 (and their limitations as an over the ears and upper mid-fi product) it was a fairly even contest between the three.

 

All in all a satisfying day.

 

love mini meets!

Traveling w/ my HiFi-M8 for the first time since my review (aside of going from local spot to local spot)

 

Flew back here to LA from Northern California - and its been FANTASTIC!

 

this is the first time I haven't brought multiple dac/amps w/ me!!

 

Yeah hooh!!!

GREAT mornin' w/ coffee and friends:

I travel for a week mid October. I may take the HIFI-M8 and Mad Dogs, but realistically, it will likely be just the iPod touch and my 1964 ears quads. Smaller is better sometimes. Especially if I decide to live out of a carry on for a week. I'll miss the M8 though. I could bring it and use it with the quads. Kinda like using a formula 1 car to get the mail though.

Finally, a succinct metaphor. Thanks! 

 

You sure saw me struggle with that one :)

So put some good tires on that Formula one and get some JH16 Pro Freq Phase's to go with it...:D

Meh, I'm done with ciems for a while. Too fiddly.

They sure are portable though!

I went to ciems from full sized cans. I think I will never go back to full sized cans anymore. Ciems are giving all I need. Still, I am planning to buy HD800 for a reference can at home though. That one is just to die for (with correct amp/dac + cable combination I believe).

The one thing holding me back from CIEMs is the thought of paying so much for something so small. And possibly fragile?

Maybe that's why I've ever only bought one diamond - out of necessity?

Get a silicone earpiece (Spiral Ear ciems for example). They are kind of indestructible. Also paying so much for something that small? Really? I appreciate it, that something that small can sound as good as full sized cans and keep me isolated with very good portability.
