Fischer Amps FA-4 E XB: New 4-BA IEM From Germany - Page 64

post #946 of 1727

I did consider buying 6 but thought just 3 would do, as I am not sure of how they will fit. Do they fit fine on the Fa without out falling off easily? Or are the tubes necessary?

post #947 of 1727

They fit fine without tubes. I just use the tubes to get a tighter fit in my ear canals. Otherwise I find them a bit hard to get a seal with unless they're used for a longer time. I also have very dry earwax so they don't oil up very well.

Yes, the C5 is a great improvement of the C421 that was also very versatile ! To my mind it is a great amps, much better than iBasso D-Zero, but it is sad to use it only with IEMs, I don't know if you have cans too, but if you just have IEMs I advice you to see for the RSA Protector (balanced with Kobiconn, little soldering to do) or the HeadAmp Pico Slim that is my favourite IEM amps, I love it with FA4 and EM32. But the most impressive amps are to my mind, but not so useful, the RSA Hornet and RSA SR-71B, just another world. Another price too... Go for C5 :)

Thanks it's because it is at a very good price on a local store. my ibasso d4 with hiflight top kit it's supposed to sound close to the rsa mustang so i guess this c5 wont be better anyway my d4 is heavy and it uses replacement batteries and it has an issue with the jacks ( each sometime you need to replace them) and I'm a bit tired of this, i can get the cs5 for 134 euros.

My collection is of iems only xD but i will use it most of the time with the fa 4e smily_headphones1.gif

I got the Ortofon tips in the mail today so I'll try it with the FA-4 when I get home. It came in this little tube thing which is definitely different for earphone tips.

 

If these don't work I'll probably go for custom tips.

Hope they work better than the others smily_headphones1.gif

I've never heard top tier custom iems but i can say that the fa 4e with custom tips and a good source are simply mind blowing but as Ive said i came from shure 535 sm3 and ex 1000 league which i consider rather bellow in performance.

I still think they are very good iems but not at the level of my customs but considering the price they shouldn't. So far they don't have the isolation that I'm used to but it does make for a good office iem or when I only have one monitor inside my ear and the other for hearing what's going on.

With custom tips isolation is crazy I'd say dangerous and not valid for an office enviroment as you will hear very little nothing
