So, I'm going to be receiving the Piano Forte X soon for review :)

post #17 of 144

Another young dude getting a pair of Piano Fortes for review??!  Hmm…..hmm… Don't be fooled by all the undeserved praise and be brave enough to trash them bleeding PFs. That'll give you more credibility.

haha, I have to treat them nicely as i may have to return them one day :(

 

Also they are lent to me for review, so they are not exactly free :) i do try and be honest in my reviews.

 

But i will take them out every now and again, here no one knows the value, they will probably think they are cheap plastic things!

 

Grumpy sparrow ;)

I haven't experienced these, however I was after an affordable non fatiguing but still detailed sound so I got the heaven iv.
I can't recommend them enough for what I wanted.
Would love to try other in their range one day but the prices ramp up quite quickly.

Curious about this also!  I've been window shopping for iem's via these forums for so long, I'm tired and I'm going to buy (I'm OCD about researching things, I guess).  I've finally landed on FAD after the multiple comments about lush lows and mids, and beautifully detailed highs.  And the VI's and S's seem to mesh quality, sound and price very nicely.

Anyone listened to the Heaven VI with an unmodded AK100? Or perhaps both? Read in one of the AK threads that one person didn't like the IV with the AK100.

Not had the chance as I don't have an AK100. But with a good portable amp these really improve. So they like some power

AK are now selling a re-branded version of Heaven IV as a top choice for AK100/120 :

Previously they were called Heaven IV Limited Edition:

I trust AK to know what sounds good with their players.

Heaven VI is basically Heaven IV tuned to perfection.

Now you have a reason to buy Heaven V/VI :wink_face:

Ordered a set of VI right in the morning before going to work. Lets see how it is . I hope to write a comparsion review against the F111, ER4S and ACST15. Considering the price point I might include the EX-1000 which will be my main reference for the bass texture and quality.

Well, I bought the Heaven VI from a member here on head-fi. And I'm really interested in the AK100 (and the AK120 is tad bit to expensive at the moment). But first I want to hear how these sound out of an iPhone 4. Coming from P5's, I'm rather curious and expect a significant improvement. Will come back with impressions.

I have a DX50 on the way. I look forward to hearing how the Heaven VI sounds straight from the headphone out.
