Now we need a picture of you wearing them :beyersmile:. Plugs look kind of long.

So, would an old JH Audio cable work with this IEM? I have one of those from Whiplash. Wondering if I need to get that cable re-terminated.

Seeing you also have the tg334, the ref1 is smaller and sit more flush in my ears then my tg334 when I demoed. I would say it sits more comfortably and less protruded than the tg334.

Ah ok. Thank you. I have pretty big ears but I think the max I would go would be the TG334 size for universals.

Looking at your earphones, you need to get this. And more Fitears.

Ref 1 Initial Impression :

 

Running time : 3-4 hours only

 

Gear : AK240

Cable : Tralucent New Silver (L-shape connector) & Uber (L-shape connector)

 

Low :

It sounds like a headphone, not an IEM.  The sub bass from Titanic's first track was speechless...interpret this passage with relaxed ease.  Impressive.

 

Mid (Vocals) :

Harry Belefonte's at Carnegie Hall/Day O & Jamaica Farewell

- wow...the voice from his throat...richer than 1plus2

- imagining precision in an airy hall

 

Eva Cassidy Live at Blues Alley - Field of Gold

She was just sitting in front of you and I was just immersed in music

 

High :

The airiness expands one more  dimension when compared to 1Plus2, detail but not aggressive.  Silver's performance was good but Uber opens up a whole new world.

 

I can't imagine how the phones would perform after some hours on it.  The above just the impressions in a very early stage of a run-in period.  

 

Pretty much nail it right there.

 

If you want a fast version on what the Ref. 1 is all about - here ya go. Bam.

In fact it wears as comfy as the 1plus2. I think I have narrow ear canals and I've seen my colleague wears this one much more into his ears.

Message to Tera Player owners :

After spending some time with my new AK240, today is the turn for my TP to try to Ref.1.

To cut it short...it's a perfect match. Beautiful music...the entire spectrum of frequencies are analog rich from low to high with density & power. I bet you'd love it.

Cheers

Thanks - that's great to hear. How different is the combo vs 1p2/Tera?

Also, how about sibilance on Ref 1? Any improvement there vs 1p2 which does have some sibilance, especially on warmer recordings - Louis Armstrong "What A Wonderful World" is a very obvious example.
