I can understand why beige isn't popular; people would think you're wearing a hearing aid.

No. There is ownership transfer option - like Heir Audio has. It's 300PLN which is slightly more than $100. The cost will be the same for reworking IEMs after 12 months warranty (in case of damage) or 30days refit period.

If you have ANY gray hair - beige CIEM's would make you look really old!

Bass - depends on the song, if the song doesn't have bass Customy no bass, but if is more and deep bass Customy produce a lot off
Mids - vocal, one of the best I've ever heard, better than Shure 5xx, heard it very well on the high female vocals, when Shure sound inexpressive. All mids are very detailed, easily distinguish between several guitars, bass.
Highs - detailed but not the obvious. No strong edge like T-PEOS H100, Etymotic 4, more play higs as Audeo Phonak 232.
Very good balance between fun and analysis.

thanks very much! misiekkb, i'm in! selling my asg1.2 i think to try these....

I'd like to know a little more about the cables used.  Do they have memory wire?  Will the clear cable oxidize and turn green over time? 

post #37 of 1257

Really interesting promotional price, consider me intrigued. So I guess preorder will only be accepted from 15th Mei onward?

post #38 of 1257

Might get my first pair of customs with these prices. Very tempted. I am curious about the custom tips for iems, is the price in the op the regular or sale price?

There're two basic types of IEM cables - one is braided like UM/Westone/JH and so one, and second is the same as ACS/Minerva/Lime use. I use the second type. Cable shouldn't oxidize, you can always order black or white cable to avoid green look. No memory wire.

Yes, From 15th May. I just need some time to prepare everything to be able to handle so many orders. Just a final touches, though.

Thanks for the clarification. Does the sennheiser ie80 fall under T400?

Why the 100? You're more a "top of the line" kinda guy, usually.

You too went for the 100??

I'm not a huge fan of memory wires. Plus there's a big price gap between cable with and without memory wire. It can be optional. It would cost 100PLN (~$35) more, though.

Very good news Piotr, thanks very much for your fast answer!
I'll opt for it then!

The memory wire on my CT-500 is useful.  On the other hand the memory wire on the R-50 made it well nigh unwearable.  I'm willing to try without if the cable is good quality and reasonably flexible.

 

Because this is the same cable used by Minerva/ACS etc... can someone who has experience with those CIEMs (e.g. Average Joe) comment on quality and comfort?
