Yes there are some bubbles in tomscy's shell, unfortunately sometimes it's inevitable although I try to make my shells as bubble-less as possible!

 

i don't mind about bubbles....unless it changes something for the isolation? If not, i think it's even quite nice...makes them kind of unique....

No change in isolation comfort sound or what so ever. It's just aesthetics issue

tomscy2000, how is the pro series cable quality compared to Copper Two cable in your cable review?
post #124 of 1812

The Custom Art site is now functioning properly providing clear information on the products available.

 

This leads me to a question: Would it be possible to order the Pro 330 with the Copperline cable?

Is tomorrow the last day of the introductory pricing? June 12th?

The CopperTwo is actually softer, but like I mentioned in the review, sometimes it feels too soft, especially with the nylon sleeving, which makes the cable a little more prone to tangling -- think of shoelaces. That's basically how soft the CopperTwo is. The flexibility of the cable on the Pro100 is closer to what I'd call ideal --- soft and without memory, but still has a little bit of springiness. In terms of thickness, I'd personally prefer it to be slightly thicker to feel greater peace of mind, but that's just a personal thing.

Thank you.

 

No, it's not possible, at least for now.

I tried the Pro100 with an inline 64 ohm resistor and 100 ohm resistor adapter today; TBH, I don't know if it's necessary; yes, the sound becomes more linear, the mids sound slightly more detailed, and the bass becomes truly flat-sounding (a little too much so for many, probably), but the treble goes from delicate and refined-sounding to almost bordering on harsh (though not quite full-blown yet). It'll probably be useful for sound engineers that want a DF-style response and need to monitor for treble smoothness, but for everyday listening, I'd go with the stock response. Nevertheless I bought the 64 ohm adapter for experimentation. The 100 ohm was too much.

I usually avoid EQ and it's very unlikely I'd be using resistors to alter sound.  I buy my IEMs with the hope that they've been carefully tuned to be enjoyable without modification.  I should not need to swap cables (and thankfully with CIEMS I don't need to tip roll) or make physical alterations.  I do understand that for another subset of hobbyists these experiments are enjoyable but what I really want to know is how something sounds out of the box.

I should add that the only reason why I tried an impedance adapter was that the Pro100 is a single-driver IEM. Single BA drivers like the 2356 used in the Pro100 often become more linear in FR when extra resistance is added on. I also tend to listen to music at very low volumes at my desk, so I value the use of extra resistance to give me more play on the volume pot.

 

You ordered the Pro330, which will change in a different (and fairly unpredictable) way with added resistance, so yes, my little tidbit about using a resistance adapter probably doesn't apply, but for people who are considering either the Pro100 or the Music One, it might be something that's worth considering.

Did pre order discount finished already? Did I miss it?

post #133 of 1812
Not yet. Still going on till 26th.

You're lucky, it was recently extended.

I don't have FB but just to follow some companies I can create one. Both of you, thank you very much guys. I will consider gettting one since I def. need something with supreme isolation/comfort, my full sized cans doesn't isolate enough and not actually quite portable (they sound superb though). Pre order prices are indeed sooo tempting so I might give it a shot.
