hifimanrookie is #15

 

#2, #15 and #16 are done.

 

Why the skip?

 

#15 and #16 didn't want mini-xlr connectors installed. It expedites the process quite a bit. 

 

#3 and #4 are getting worked on at the moment. #5 and #6 are getting started soon.

Probably stock Hifiman connectors.

Something went wrong with the link with wolfetan or got deleted for some reason....so i quote the first impression myself of the second code-x in the wild of a fellow code-x owner..am awaiting mine..being the 3rd to get it i hope. biggrin.gif
Its AN IMPRESSION..NOT A REVIEW .... But i thought u guys would want to read about it..as soon i have mine i will try to do a review myself..but THE REVIEW will be around second week of febr. When i have my new amp. biggrin.gif

Enjoy!

So I am fortunate enough to have some good equipment on hand over Christmas vacation! This includes the Cavalli LAu, Abyss and # 16 Code-X. I also have the AGD M6, Vali and my open D7000's for reference.

Long story short, Luis knocked it out of the park. I was able to get #16 early because I was good with keeping the original HiFiMan connectors. Apparently that shaves a **** load of wait time off and allows Luis to expedite the rest of the process.

The Code-X is the best I've heard period. Yes, it's as neutral as all get-up, but that's not what does it for me. It's a very transparent, detailed and clear sounding headphone. Why I like it more than the Abyss is because it presents a fuller, more cohesive image. It has a nicer, smoother treble. The overall timbre is more natural sounding. Bass levels are less than the Abyss, but it's all there. Enough to keep me happy. The Code-X played well with the three amps I had on hand. The Abyss seemed like it was more dependent on amp synergy than the Code-X. Lastly, it's also a great deal more comfortable as you would expect.

Fit and finish is excellent. I love the wood with the classic matte finish. The ear pads are luxurious and a pleasure to wear.

Thank you Luis!

Is hardwiring an option?

Am guessing if changing the connectors to xlr is an option...then hardwiring wont be a problem also... Contact Luis if u want a concrete answer wink.gif

I think Luis will do everything you ask, especially if you're a government official from Washington.

This weather is not complying well with parcels...

 

I have a Eddie Current 2A3 stuck somewhere between France and Sweden, nobody knows exactly where, even though i have a DHL tracking number as well as several parcls with cigars somewhere between US and Sweden.

 

Be patient.. ;)
