The last news stirred a bit too much and some took it as a flagship announcement.
Yes, I heard the new flagship actually had 32 drivers per ear, 8 sets of quads, and that you can only wear them lying down.

I heard that they're made of solid diamond encrusted gold, have 96 micro ba drivers per side and will only cost US $7.  Also that Piotr will deliver each earphone personally and shake the hand of the buyer.

It's pretty cool, actually.

Personally, I was thinking about the CIEM with not-yet-released Sonion drivers you mentioned a couple of times.

Just watching.  I am working on plenty of content, but I haven't finished much yet.  Because of that, I am just watching on the sidelines and seeing how things unfold with nothing specific in mind.

Hi All,

Wonder if anybody made comparisons of pro 330 with some other flagships?
Something like Shure 846, AKG 3003, 1 plus 2, Vision Ears, etc.

Many thanks.

I can tell you that the two earphones I'm using daily are the JH13pro (with freqphase) and the Custom Art Pro 330.  Both have their strengths and are sharing equal ear time.  Considering the JH13pro is one of the most universally lauded CIEMs available it should give you some idea just how good the Pro 330 is.

Thank you Deviltooth

The beast is unleashed. 

 

 

Piotr's masterpiece. CRAZY accurate, unforgiving, this is really what I need in a monitor.

It really need a huge voltage swing though. I'm listening with volume 50-55 on my AK120 to get to a normal listening level (compared to 39-44 with my SE5). This is my first IEM that really gets a huge improvement when amp'd.

Thanks Jazzfi!

 

You know... almost 100 Ohms and only 106dB @1kHz that calls for some good amping.

More accurate than SE5?

I can say YES. Not in terms of details but transparency. It's faster and uncolored. SE5 is more hi-fi, the Pro666 is more monitor.

That looks pretty awesome. I'm really tempted to get something from here even though I don't like having customs done outside of USA due to pains of refit.

I felt the same way but Piotr's customer service is unmatched.  Clear Tunes was a good experience, JH Audio was decent once I got on the phone and explained exactly what was wrong in minute detail.  Unique Melody was the worst buying experience of my life.

GROWLS!  Okay, I want one!  I can't tell from the picture, how many sound tubes?
