Other iFi features are named for example, "3D Holographic for Headphones" and "XBass."

 

So probably best to avoid "iXXXXX" as that is for the product name rather than feature.

 

People just don`t read anymore nowdays ;(

 

Those i-names just keep on coming...

 

Maybe You should have noted out in first post, that i-names are NOT preferable?

Yes, I didn't track 280+ posts when I came across this thread. 50+ threads across multiple forums are enough reading. If the first post had suggested i-names weren't to be considered, I wouldn't have posted anything. Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

Interesting competition and entries! A zodiac name is probably overkill for this comparatively mundane accessory although the rationale behind "iFi Libra" makes it rather fitting. I'm liking others' suggestions of "iFi iBridge", "iFi iStep", "iFi iMatch" etc. nice short nouns that are also action verbs alluding to the size and function of the product. Also liking "iFi μ/mu" and "iFi Ω/ohm".

Me, I'm thinking "iFi Postfix". The postfix attaches to the end of a word much like how the attenuator would attach to the end of a cable on a sensitive IEM, and alter the meaning of a word or "fix" the audio signal by bringing it to a suitable level and eliminating hiss, etc. I'd find the irony humorous if I see something like an "iFi nano iCAN ... bundled with a Postfix", though you'd have to find a way to play down the gimmick factor.

Or maybe "iFi Infix/Interfix" as it fits between an iCAN and a transducer in the chain.

Or maybe "iFi Prefix" as it would be if you see it from the iCAN looking at a connected headphone.

Or simply "iFi Affix" and admit that the "i" affix trend is just a bit silly :P

Yeah, people do read.....  Take another close look at iFi's response, which you are quoting.

 

This is a naming contest for a NEW PRODUCT.  iFi states that "i" names are for PRODUCTS.

 

This is not a contest for naming a new feature of an existing product.  So, blame iFi for an imprecise response to the question.

Background

We have developed some exclusive attentuators for iFi customers who use very high-sensitivity IEMs with the nano iCAN, nano iDSD and micro iCAN. There are two versions: -12dB and -24dB.

 

From what I read out, those attenuators are extra "feature" for iFi products not a new product.

 

I think iFi should clarify this for everyone.
