Review: Final Audio Design Heaven VI - Page 8

post #106 of 153

There's still some hope :)) maybe
I don't have much experience with IEMs to determine the size of my ear canal . Can you tell me ? If I put my point finger in my ear so that it fits ,I can measure the length from where the tip of my finger stay inside the canal to the outer rim of my ear (the part of your ear that is in font of your IEM) is about more than 1,6 cm . I think it is shallow , isn't it ?

Depth might have some influence but the real issue is how wide your ear canals are. Mine are very (i.e. unusually) wide.

Boy, mine too!  I have this fear that I can touch my eardrum with my index finger.

Around 410$ shipped from Japan. Unless you think the customs might be 140$, it's a better option.

I don't know how much for the customs but for the price I think it is good.Compared from jaben which is $648 usd.

I dropped mine yesterday from the first floor, while going up the stairs. Now the left ears is having a very subtle crackling noise, with particular frequencies. The sound is almost comparable to the sound you hear after you put them in your ears, while the vacuum is being lifted. So it was difficult to even determine the problem. I bought these used from this site, about half a year ago. I contacted my local dealer to check if they can repair them (Belgium/Netherlands), otherwise I might contact the original seller to hear where he bought these (somewhere in the UK). Quite a bummer. Do not feel like spending money on new iems, then again i do not want anything less than these.

Just receive my FAD VI yesterday. Imported from japan. First listening not as i expexted. The mids are wonderful. Listening to vocal i can hear every words crystal clear. Maybe it just not sound signature for me. Considering on selling them soon.

Hi guys, I'm searching for an amplifier specifically for my Heaven VI and with my iPod Video 5.5g. I currently have a CL Duet but I find the sound of the Heaven VI to be too warm for me when paired with the warmish iPod and the Duet. What relatively neutral portable amplifier have you guys tried with the Heaven VI? 

 

My current choices are the Pico Slim and the new CL Picollo.

Give them a bit of ear time. I thought the sig was odd when I tried them but slowly realised that they are very special. Convey emotion even more than my JH13's. Sadly did not fit my ears.

Rockboxed iPod Classic with the Pico Slim used to be my rig with the Heaven VI. It is a very good combination, and a lovely diminutive package. Get the Whiplash right exit Twaag ipod cable from Headanp when you order the Pico Slim. It's a perfect fit.

Thanks for the suggestion!! Will find a way to demo the pair and if I like the pairing, I'll get it right after I get the other things currently on my sights (micro iDSD, HE-560).

I love the sound of the Brainwavz B2. Would I love this? A friend is selling his for $200... I only have $120 though, so I need to know if this is worth it.

You have no way to demo it before you decide? It will take a while to completely understand the sound signature but after all the brain burn in I significantly prefer them over the B2… then again, I rather dislike the B2's analytical sound signature. They complement and contrast in terms of signature. They're really different… what music do you listen to?
