Be assured that as far as popularity goes, you haven't seen the end of it so be ready to keep working hard at organizing other ones, it will happen! beerchug.gif

Yeah true, it's the sad part but only for few months if you are going to buy one wink.gif

Haven't you learned that everything is in the unboxing?

Like a kid you open up your Xmas present, then after ten days you don't play with the toy anymore biggrin.gif

having a blast with it at the moment. brief impression is that the treble seems to be kinda sharp on the normal eq, not sure is the player or the earphones(null audio elpis 2). ui wise its better than the dx50 for sure but aint no ipod classic silky smooth. the wheel definitely needs a gradual acceleration(might have it but too little) . with only 650+ songs i have to turn the wheel 70+ complete circles to reach from first to last song.

with female vocals with certain words, it sounds a little piercing to my ears to the point of not not enjoying it at all. im testing with the song royals by lorde with the same iem on 3 source. xperia z ultra/pc using foobar/jriver/x5 and the x5 display this syndrome the most followed by jriver having a very small amount in the jriver playback and none on the z ultra and foobar playbacks. playing the same track on my akg k272hd i didnt manage to replicate the same problem. might be limitation of my iem?

It's your IEM (Null Audio Elpis).  The reviews I've seen describe it as being V shaped with a dry and etched treble (and prone to sibilance).  Lordes album was one of the ones I listened to on the X5 - and definitely no signs of sibilance with that (or any other album) - even with my RS1.

I am receiving mine soon I hope, I will compare to Studio 3rd and 801
post #790 of 1895

Arrived this morning.  Will start using it from tonight..  I'll see how it does with JH13 and T1, and main comparisons will be with my current portable rig (GS3 + Glacier).

I think people will agree that this has been one of the most inclusive tours ever to grace head-fi, judging by how the applicant list may have been one of the longest ever, yet much more than half of the applicants were selected. I'm pretty sure that in terms of accepted tour members this must be the biggest tour ever biggrin.gif Still there will always be people left out redface.gif

Keep your eyes peeled for our next tour, I say. biggrin.gif

Though I must say I feel like I've overstretched myself and unless this tour turns out to be an unequivocal runaway success, it's unlikely for the next tour to be anywhere as big redface.gif

 

I'm be first in line for that tour again (hopefully) ;)...

Definitely agrees 100% that Fiio needs to improve the ease of getting the latest firmware.
