Look at it as a blessing. What if they stopped making Ice Cream after Vanilla and Chocolate? :wink_face:

I have a question for K-10 users.

 

Is the cable provided detachable? Am I able to use after-market cables for it, if so?

 

Thanks.

Yep, the cable is detachable, and ready for after-market cables.

What kind of connecting pins do the K-10 have?

 

I'm thinking of whether the Toxic Cables would give them a huge upgrade in terms of SQ.

They are the standard 2 pin. I've been using the Toxic Cables Silver Widow for a few weeks now. I wouldn't say it's a huge upgrade over the stock cable in terms of SQ, but it's probably more durable and looks more striking. It is a lot heavier and thicker than the stock cable. 

 

In terms of SQ, I would agree on how a silver cable is described. It adds more shimmer to the highs, and brings out a bit more detail but I didn't find it hampers the bass much (if at all). In terms of soundstage, I'm not sure, as I've never really been one to notice it in an IEM. 

 

I would say the SW, while not essential is the finishing touch/ full stop to my portable rig.

There probably won't be that much improvement. The stock cable is very good. I do have a custom balanced cable for my K10s, and running them balanced off my HiFi M8 opens up the soundstage and seems to tease out small details and instrument decay better. Sorensim has written a fair amount about this as well.

Ahh.. I see. Thanks for the useful info.

 

Right now, I'm deciding on my next TOTL CIEM, which is either a Fitear model, K-10, or LS-10.

 

The K-10s would be a great option, as the designs for it are nothing short of breathtaking, to go with its stellar SQ.

After market cables can be quite polarizing. While I don't notice a huge difference, others might do. I went with the SW due to its looks, and to make me less shallow, the craftsmanship and overall build quality. Values it shares with the K10 :D

 

I've not heard other TOTL CIEMS. The K10 was my first CIEM and a big jump into the unknown. Luckily, I struck gold and even after 4-5 months I've no desire to upgrade.

Is this just ear-impressions? Will it be expanded upon later to include things like impression verification and shipping? Would be convenient. :tongue_smile:

Ah, that's good to know. Btw, you might have to check with Jude about a "Member of the Trade" status or something and what are the head-fi rules on that.

Thanks, but I've driven by this address and it doesn't look like a shop that is being properly run. Perhaps they are focusing their efforts on web-based sales.
