I may try my hand at a recable on those iems i got in the Cracker Jacks box. Uhh oh yeah the MH1C.

I reached the bottom of the box and saw nothing special, like a cool shifting picture decal, instead there were those MH1c things. I nearly took the box back, but then I figured it wasn't worth my time complaining about getting ripped off...


Could have been worse, could have been the MH750's. Well then at least the tips would have been useful;)

 

At least we know where the chinese got rid of all there tapeworms:eek:

Fostex TE-05. 

 

These are the giant killers in the $100-150 people have been waiting for. They are better than the Dunu dn-1000, Re-400, JVC fxt90, Vsonic gr07BE, and the Sony H2. The smooth lush reference sound is exactly how mochill describes them to be. natural and organic. Best sub $200 earphone I've ever heard IMHO.


^ No need to hype them, they hype themselves cuz that's how AMAZING they are................ though i haven't heard them for myself yet.

 

But i'll take your words for it. Oh even better how 'bout you hand your pair ova' so i can help you promote your cause??? Less work for ya' and you got the OP of this thread slaving aways on them hypes. :tongue: 

 

DAT INSIDER HOOKUP MENG. :cool:

How often does this work? Obviously someone would hand over a pair of logjams...just so you can hear how amazing they are....but on anything else.

the Teacs are effortless. rather remind me of electrostatic speed, and also the similar type of bass presentation really.. Stock tips were replaced in favour of the V-moda Bliss ones. These are the go-to set now for walking around man do they excell in the smooth realms=not what I was expecting not much if any peakiness at all, Top drawer.

I am an idiot yes for not grabbing the 5 pack when i had that chance.

Speaking of Pannies i really wish "someone" left the initial impressions up on those new fullsized jobbers, it's really no big deal to reassess after a while anyhow. So you liked em firstoff then grew to not like them. No big deal it's not like your life rests on that or your rep anyhow. I am tempted still to grab a a set and try em out. if anything it would bring more respect chiming in on how you realize maybe they are not to your tastes after a little while.

Sorry, no AK240 experience here. I've been told all of iRiver "demos" in Japan are out with the magazine reviewers, etc. and none for the likes of me to demo. Of course I probably could rock up into a shop to test but I do prefer a proper loaner to test in controlled environment.

 

P.S. before anyone asks, no urge to buy to test either.

To be honest, the AK240 hasn't really excited me the way it has to the crowd here very simply that for the asking price I (like everyone else) have high expectations from it. I have no doubt it may well be "the best DAP in the market now" but that really doesn't mean much to me.

 

If I come across it, I'll give it a listen. If not, it hasn't really been a big deal.

True. I can totally relate. Afterall AK240's SQ is not leaps and bounds better than what we had.

And before AK240 "the best DAP in the market" to me was the AK120 considering on top of SQ the form factor, UI, size, battery etc but I was still happy to dump it for a lowly DX50 while keeping hm901 for the best pocketable (albeit barely) sound.

I'm sure there are much more options when we look at portable/pocketable transport+DAC/AMP combos in additional to DAPs.

I feel more or less the same...just wish there was another complete offer for half the price.

 

Some words for yo' motha'!!!

Remember, it’s just technology.  What would you do one day if you suddenly had to remove all of it?  There is more to life than Silver, Silicon and Sound.

I blame you for my loss in buying a teac. Had you purchased that pack sooner, more of the ignorant and teacless headfiers would be able to praise these cheapo iems... :(

I can't think of a money pun so I'll just stick to what works and what I know best - making fun of sf.

 

For one, he has a box for a head. And he's stupid.

I think that's enough for one day.


Nick remind me to send you a CK10 to try when I do find another pair, because of the TWFK thing I mentioned a long while back. Unless you've already had one.

Really! We don't have the penny anymore so that should have just tripped off the fingertips. Perhaps you've been confined to quarters for too long.

 

Ease up on the carboard, he's busy with a dental pick trying to extract the waffle maxipads from his eggcarton ears.
