Wonderful impressions Rollk2. Seems like all CA ciems punch waaaaaaay above their prices.

Yeah it is. I'm con-facebook as well and I don't have a personal account. But it seems indeed that company without facebook nowadays is less recognizable.

The Music One are one of the best IEM I ever heard in terms of natural sounding, except that the sound signature has a bump in the high mids that is absolutely non aggressive and make the CA sound signature sounding lovely. Currently I prefer my Music One to my pro330, the soundstage is perhaps more in the head, the separation of the instrument is less airy, but it's more enjoyable, they sound good on poor tracks, perfect on excellent quality tracks and they have bass like any other mono BA I've ever heard. Just astonishing.

 

The Music Two is more open sounding, airy and keep the sound signature of the Music One with a better layering and instrument texture. Oh yes I forgot it, the instrument texture on the Music One is that texture you could have uniquely on CIEM. I just heard that kind of texture on CIEM and no one IEM could do that, except IEM that are CIEM based. The Westone 4 are less textured than the Music One. The SM64 are near from that. Okay, sorry, the Music Two is even more interesting than the Music One to my mind, it's a real upgrade to them and if you want a CIEM that can perform with much better CIEM, buy them.

 

The pro330 is clearly a professional CIEM, more flat and balanced, less enjoyable on poor tracks, they are less "aggressive" too on dynamic tracks. They cost 575€ but to my mind they could be pricier, really. I compare them with my EM32 that are 1000€ CIEM, almost twice the price and they are not so far, except that the EM32 could be pricier too considering they compete at this price with CIEM and IEM that are not as good (technically) than the EM32. I love the mids on pro330 that give the feeling you have a real soundstage with a superb sensation of deepness. They are a little veiled compared with the EM32 mids but to my mind no one CIEM at this price level could compete.

 

To my mind Piotr, if you are tuning the Harmony, don't use the philosophy of the pro330 but this for your Music serie. I regret that the pro330 are so rigorous :(

 

I don't have FB too, but I can follow Piotr on his FB page thanks it's open to anyone : https://www.facebook.com/thecustomart

Thank you for your impressions.

Well, that's the idea behind my IEMs.

You know I was kidding :D I know it sucks and that's why I try change it. And try it good word, because it takes so long. But really final touches are made (some pictures) and it will be ready!

Can't wait to see it Peter (Harmony as well but here I would rather use word "listen to" rather than "see it"biggrin.gif)

Great impressions thank you.
So about that customer service.... Thanks Piotr. Just answered a lengthy email from me with quite a few questions I had. Based on his email as well as these impressions, Music Two's it shall be.

Would like to wait for "Harmony" but I fear this will be out of my budget. Would love to hear the impressions though.

I really need to go get some impressions. No time, though. :redface:

post #683 of 3473

Does Head-fi have some kinda special price?

I am appointed to an audiologist on Thursday but I do not think I can stretch my budget all the way up to a pair of music two... :/

But I guess that I will be satisfied with a pair of ONEs  :beerchug:

How long waiting time is it on CIEM´s from customart now? (I live in Sweden)

So when you guys send impressions to Piotr, what do you label them on the customs form? Does it even matter since they're basically valueless?

Ear impressions, 5$
