It really sounds insane



2. Uber chopsticks... and Ref 1




3. AK240 finally got defeated by Peking duck



Thanks CHG and Gavin for arranging a great dinner, great views and even better company! It was great to meet everyone in person: it's always nice to be able to put faces to nicks, like CHG, kkcc and Holeout. Gavin, I of course had met prior to this.

Good stuff! And always fantastic to exchange views and share gear. smily_headphones1.gif I, for one, look forward to when we can get together again! smily_headphones1.gif

@Kiats

I am really glad that you enjoy the dinner! I thought if the food wasn't so good , the view of Victoria harbour could make up for it. Its wonderful to meet a gentleman with fine taste!

Heheh! You worry too much CHG. Food, views and company was excellent! If I may be immodest to accept the compliment, the fine taste extends to friends I have and the company that I keep. smily_headphones1.gif

The "scientist" in me seems to suggest the improvement is caused by my secret super glue tweak...lol just joking....i must let @Kiats to hear them this Friday..

Same here Cosmic...I told Gavin that I'd like to have my Ref.1 0.5dB less of bass...however...after burnt in I'm happy with the way it is.  Glad to make this decision to get the Ref.1 and proud to be the first customer owner (just 1/2 a day ahead of you on May 7th).

 

Cheers

Can you guys compare the bass for me now that you are noticing changes after burn in? How does it compare to other IEMS that are known for their bass? If possible, I'm just really curious. I'd really appreciate what you guys could share.

These or the K10s? Hmmmm..... Guess I'll wait a little while longer to get some extra feedback. But those Ref1s really do look gorgeous.

I'm getting both. Ordered these already, probably going to order K10 in 2 weeks.

I think in short, its how the bass notes take shaped and tightened over a period of time to increase the overall clarity. I have been noticing using the same source (HM-901) and same Ray Brown highres album. I wasnt much a believer of burn in but I could notice the change for this iem.

Lol...I'm not worried since if I don't like Ref1, I'm sure it will resell easily without much of a loss... Custom, that's another story unfortunately.
