Will Tralucent ever make CIEM models? Or will they always just be Universal?

 

Anyone compared the ref1 with K10?

Universal so far. No CIEM offering as far as I known of.

 

Somewhere in this thread covered the K10 [vaguely remember, not 100% sure] and you may search the thread to see if there is any info that you are looking for.

I had the Ref 1 for about 3 weeks (now passed on to @shigzeo). At the Fujiya show I did have a chance to listen to the K10 demos although not side-by-side (but 5 mins apart).

 

I have to admit I really do like the K10s a lot and find that the two just have a somewhat too different signatures to really compare. The K10 demos I tried had a more full bloom (more the FitEar-like signatures) whilst the Ref 1 is really more on the toe tapping fast fun-like signature. To what recall from that day, the K10's fuller signature whilst the Ref 1 sounds more like a U-shape by comparison.

 

I'll get a better idea of the K10s as I'm having a pair of CIEMs made up for review courtesy of Noble. I hope to get the Ref 1's back from Shigzeo when he's done reviewing and should be able to do a better side-by-side in a more controlled environment (i.e. at home or in my local Starbucks).

Thanks heaps AnakChan!

 

Very informative post! Wish you had them both to give a better impression which is the only thing we can get other than spending $1.5K + for every IEM release that comes out LOL

 

At this level i feel it really only comes down to sound signature and personal preference. 

 

Would you be able to tell more about what you heard in K10 as an armature based iem to ref1 which is dynamic. Main reason i came to this brand was to look at something a little different.

 

1plus2 was at a whole new level with its dynamic design but id like to avoid universal. resell and everything it still doesnt beat a nice easy non fatiguing nice sealed fit. Wish i had ears that enjoyed tips let it be foam, comfy, silicone or other. Excited about how I always hear that Dynamic drivers are simply more well balanced, streamlined, adaptable, fun and just overall more 'well mixed?'. I have no idea tho as ive always just had armature based IEM.

 

Since they are universals maybe its more wise to track one down and test when its completely released.

There's nothing in the pipelines at such time.
