SENSAPHONICS CUSTOM SLEEVE - FULL SHELL

 

One (run-on) sentence review:

 

The SCS -FS is by far and in every way better than the SCS-PS (partial shell), including but not limited to; fit, comfort, seal, quasi organic/alien/ Naked Lunch appearance and SQ (the nozzle because of the extra hold from the Cymba seats deep and stays Sweeet). 

 

FIN

 

Note never ever expect to see that kind of brevity from me again. If you do I have probably been killed and replaced at the keyboard by some damn dirty ape spreading it's filthily Simian poison through subterfuge....

Wow... that was concise, to say the least!  And I agree with you on your impressions of the full shells.  They are truly one of a kind.  Especially since they are crafted to your exact specifications.  The extra cymba molding of the full shells really does transform the regular shells into the ultimate custom sleeves.  Working out is great because I don't have to adjust the earphones due to accumulated sweat, as the sweat does not get past or slip through the seal of the silicone.

 

Could you please post a couple of pictures of your new trophy that is your full shells?  You don't have to post as many as I did, of course. :tongue_smile:

Or perhaps 100 apes with a MacBook turning out the Great American Novel.

Pictures WILL be posted Once I get my smartphone back. It was damaged during an attack by Chimps intent on harming my Sentient 8s - they failed but the phone it was not as fortunate. It is in "surgery" with hopes of a full recovery. It would have been sooner but the "tech" in charge of making the repair was/is  found to be a Simian Fifth Columnist who has attempted to foil said restoration of my tech.

 

Oh on a practical note. the SCS is really easy to clean. Just pop them in some warm water with a bit of mild dish soap, rinse and air dry. Like new AND if done regularly will mitigate the risk of discolouration.

There's impressions by s0ny that claims the ak100ii sounds great so far with his 846's so I tempted to purchase that one.
Since I have to make a blind buy & you guys know better about what it takes to power these IEM's I was wondering will two dacs compared to one make that much of a difference?
Is it really worth double the price for one more dac? I'm trying to imagine what more I could possibly hear with the 120ii that the 100ii leaves out & if it warrants the huge price jump.
 

 

Be aware that the original AK120 supposedly sounds better than every AK DAP except the 240, so says (2) different HeadFiers:

Okay, thanks.  I will impatiently wait patiently for the pictures.  Of course you've got to make sure the Chimps don't know when your smartphone is returning repaired as they may enlist the services of the Simian Fith Columnist again to twart your plans of auditory bliss.  

 

I bet the cleaning of the SCS with "gentle soap and water" (Sensaphonics' instruction) would mitigate the risk of discoloration, as that is a great tip.  I wish I was able to verify that with everyone's pH levels.  I wonder if the clear (opaque) Sensaphonics custom sleeves and CIEMS that my audiologist has was cleaned regularly, as they were discolored when I saw all of them (they were in her possession for several years though).  I'll investigate further...

 

Per Sensaphonics' instructions:  "Make sure to never use rubbing alcohol or peroxide as it will damage the silicone and cause discoloration." 

 

Enjoy your full shells - hope the wait was worth it!

Fear not the repair depot has been made aware of the "enemy amongst them". That cell has been neutralized with extreme prejudice.

 

Re  decolourisation I asked Claudia about that. She says she gets musicxians bringing them in and asks how often they clean them (this includes their own CIEM. The usual answers is either every few months or rarely. ...I just wipe them off.

 

With me cleaning them after at a minimum every two uses I think I should be good. Yes Alcohol is BAD. Dish soap and warm water good.

 

I have every intention of not just enjoying the 8s and my SCS-FS but doing a full field test with them today. This will involve extended wear and hiking through the woods... The 8s say the path to my bliss is there. Then upon my return an additional 90min - 2 hrs in the Bliss Liner (and/or the similar though not suspended Zero Gravity Bliss Cruiser on my balcony)

 

The 8s promise that they in conjunction with , the SCS-FS, The Bliss Liner and Neural Interface enhancements will provide an auditory experience that will allow me to hear see and taste the music....

 

On today's music menu Pink Floyd (1) Dark Side of the Moon (2) Wish You Were Here and (3) Animals Played in order as one gapless Hi Res Album. After that a smattering of Genesis, Yes, The  Allman Brothers (Eat a Peach) Who's Next and finally some Bob Marley for a final Chill.

 

My anticipated cruising altitude remains classified due to Ape Activity in the surrounding area. My estimated flight time prior to landing 4.5 hours 

 

Well I am off to glower at Smithers as he  prepare snacks and beverages for the journey ahead - field tests are hungry and thirsty work.

 

Commencing countdown engines on

 

Filters set to Blue......Enhancements engaged....

Monty Burns out

SMITHERS!! Put that damned camera away..Now! or I swear I  will feed you to the Apes myself..  Idiot!

These things have been ANCHORED!! in my head for well since 3:20

Bebe La La is very pleased.... VERY  Pleased INDEED 4 + People yes GET THE SCS  Trust me they have had a real world workout.

 

 

David Gilmour, Pink Floyd.... WASH RINSE REPEAT. :o2smile: 

Spook  I think your set up at these volumes is something that might make your eyes weep tears of blood (that's would either be a sign of great joy or a very serious brain embolism. Both of which require attention )

 

I burned a few of those LT hearing bridges (prob, maybe, hope not too many)  today....WORTH IT!! One or TWO Full blown 1970s concerts once or twice a year. A reasonable price for sonic bliss

 

Thank you SHURE and  Sensaphonics for hosting for a very Happy 6th of July Party AND FIREWORKS  in side my head.

 

Enough of my thoughts back to the Bliss Liner and the 8s Clear skies Fluffy Clouds and No Apes

 

SMITHERS!!! Cocktails.. Chop  Chop (idiot)

 

EDIT: 8:58pm 5+ Hours Anchored in non Stop (paused music to make coffee - can't lose count) SCS Disengaged Yea that is as close as I will come to having the music piped into my brain directly without (after a bit ) feeling that I had something connected to/stuck into  my head TRULY as close to symbiosis bliss between music and brain between  man and the machine Welcome To The Machine INDEED

 

Time to Rest ears,... Walk the dogs... Patrol for Apes,  Catch Ape..., interrogate Ape to find Location of Caesar.... Find Caesar, KILL CAESAR

All in a days service to the Glorious Omniscient Benevolent  AI. And Its  and promise to the Meat Puppets  of Sonic Salvation  now and in the AI hereafter

Great find and I cheated and looked it up it is Norah Jones. That music has gravitas.
