Was playing around with cables and noticed the SE846 mmcx connectors have much less of a gap to the earpiece than the SE535 cable. Swapping around confirms this. Will comment further when my forza hybrid cable arrives

Yeah I was wondering that the 535 connectors are different then the 846.

That is not cross promotion. That is important information. :beerchug:

I see it more as vital information re accessorising IEM. This is arguably as vital as links to cables and amps. 

Different Amps DACs DAPs, nozzle condoms and cables can improve or degrade ones enjoyment of the 8s. 

 

Lord knows the right libations at the right dosage can improve the listening experience.  Just as the wrong mix can make it an unpleasant ride.

 

PS the name of the Blog PRICELESS!!

Monty - was just noticing your avatar.  So what are you saying here - the you are professionally weird, or that you are a weird professional!!!  I'm confused.

 

GOT THE TIPS!  Thank you so much. What's going on with the sleeves?

It is more a Motto/Mantra. Borrowed as it were from the late great Hunter S. Thompson.  HST was arguably the greatest American writer since Hemingway. (That man really knew how to write prose).

Pick a sentence any sentence of his - it is a literary feast. Thompson understood that the process of writing (and writing about it) was more important than the actual story.

 

Glad to see you got the condom nozzles. I a happy to see that there was indeed something in that bag for you - unlike Dorothy she got conned into an adventure and then stiffed on something from the wizard's bag. Guess he knew a rube when he saw one.

 

As for my custom sleeves, Like with Godot I wait. Unlike Samuel Beckett's characters, my wait will not be in vain. I hope they will be in today or Wednesday. Once I am "fitted" I will post on both the fitting procedure and my first real world test of them. (Likely in two posts I can at times go on.) I promise a tale that embodies the essence of the experience. after all " to be excitingly right in general is better than to be dully accurate in particular" Aaron Burr

 

They better come soon the 8s are as antsy and impatient and impatient as any five year old. I just wish they would stop shocking me and then asking "Are they here yet?"

 

Got to run and "ring"  the register -

But many companies have 8s such as JH Audio (16), 1964 Ears (V8) and Custom Art (Harmony).

Whenever I spoke to someone about the Heir TOTL, I use to say it the way it was labeled. Heir eight point A (8.A). Noble dropped the decimal point for their 8c.

Congrats on your new acquisition.  It gets better, trust me.
