Ordered these yesterday from amazon.co.uk
I guess they will be shipped to me in a few days :)
This is my case (HM5 pads from mp4nation tracked from ezyparcels)
So it is normal I guess...
My Deltas arrived today at last. Took them exactly 21 days to reach my door in the UK.
Well, I'm very impressed with these beasts and they're well worth all the hype indeed!
They are extremely balanced and offer remarkable definition. Perhaps the sound signature is slightly V shaped but very slightly if this is the case.
Not only they offer unbelievable live and clear sound, considering their price tag but they are also very beautiful in terms of aesthetics and very very comfortable. They are extremely lightweight and the white rubber tips don't hurt me or cause itching to my ears. I really forget that I'm wearing them.
The plug is solidly constructed and reminds me of the plug that my DUNU have. Very solid. There's no way it will fall apart. Perhaps Brainwavz copied it from DUNU as I remember throwing to the bin 2 pairs of Brainwavz Betas whose 3.5 jack was damaged.
The Deltas are certainly the best sounding IEM from the ''cheap'' series. I dare to say they compete with the best I've ever used no matter the price range. They are certainly better than E10s, Dunu Tridents, Betas, FA Eternas, Altec lansing UHP 306....
A big thumbs up to Brainwavz for putting out such an impressive piece of kit at that competitive price!
Good luck with that. Mine has had this status since 29th and still no update and it hasn't arrived at the customs. It's been officially over a month coz my Deltas were dispatched on the 11th last month. These Deltas have already taken 3 weeks more than what I've usually had to wait for mp4nation packages and that's very weird. Even the first Delta's destination from Hong Kong to Singapore took 11 days, which is longer than what I usually wait for to receive my packages from Singapore or Hong Kong. As I said before something odd is happening with the postal services there.
I think it's the best thing you can do. You don't have to pay this extra tener.
Leave them to get sent back and buy them directly from amazon for £14. They worth this money for sure as they also worth all the hassle you have been put through. Guaranteed. Awesome headphones!
Especially when driven by my Dragonfly the result is mindblowing! You have the feeling that they worth hundrends really. The definition is beyond belief while the soundstage and stereo imaging are really spectacular and equal to much more expensive IEMs.
My Cowon D3 drives them adequately with nice full bodied sound. The results are not that good when I plug them to my Sony NWZ B173. The sound comes out kinda messy, slightly bassy and not so well defined.
The above lead me to believe that they might be quite picky with the source that they are being associated with. They are also probably quite demanding in terms of power consumption, especially if compared to other cheap IEMs in this price tag. (for example my Tridents are driven very well by my Sony stick)
Certainly they do not sound thin in any way. I'm blown away really by the Deltas! I didn't have big expectations and I still stay jaw-dropped evey time I listen to them!
The only way the Delta would sound thin is if the seal isn't right. They also sound great with my Sony S639. I think that is more of Sony giving worse SQ to things like the E, F, and B series players. which I always disliked. Give up features fine but they also dropped the SQ which is why my stick player is an iriver T9 which is worse since it has no card slot, smaller screen, and can't record line-in like my bigger iriver but sounds excellent.
