If we don't listen, we will end up being like so many others and that cannot happen in our book.
Our only regret is not joining here earlier!
You guys are the Tops!
It shows that they blatantly ignored the attached invoice that states its a sample and of NO COMMERCIAL VALUE, which I know was put in CAPS so as not too be missed. Seems like they just thought "Ah we will ignore that and charge him anyway"
Go get 'em
I will indeed, they might have thought something funny though as the invoice lists QTY 6 Earphones / Headphones and there are only 5 items in the box.
All is good!
Gotta take some pictures and open up boxes!
Much Thanks and Cheers!
**************** ALL TESTERS PLEASE READ ************************
OK guys PLEASE use the Hydra, Arcana and Kontrol as paperweights or as a pretty necklace as I am sending you all new sets.
Spent the day making some adjustments.
Have been looking at the drivers over and over and realised that was not the issue. It was the front end porting, or should I say lack of.
So im going to build you all some new sets and get them out this week along with the Acero.
I wont bother packaging the in-ears again and just jiffy bag them to you.
THEN, you can do some proper testing
Thanks for all your patients guys
Thank you very much Bob - you guys are legends, making adjustment based on feedback, this is what beta testing are all about
Well done sir...
Well I I have spent a little time with them all...
I had big expectations for the Acero's and it is the first headphone I've used that has a very microphonic headband, yokes and cable. The adjusters rattle and seem loose but I understand that is getting changed in the next one. I have a big head so if the padded part of the headband was an inch longer on each side, it would lower the stainless band closer to my head since there is quite the large gap between the padding and the band and I have to have the arms almost fully extended.
Speaking of the cable, it has that nasty rubbery Monoprice feel to it and I am definitely not a fan of the cable.
It's late now so I'll just leave that there...
TD - I already PM'd Bob on this - but what's your take on the filter? I find the ebony ones a little too bass light, and the silvers a little too bass heavy. I'm usually a "neutral-head" anyway. I'd love a filter in the middle of the two of them .....
I've removed my review to avoid any confusion with the updates.
(Mods, if you could entirely remove the entry that would be even better, thanks.)
RockBob, sounds as though you're happy a substantial improvement has been made by your modifications. If you prefer to send out updated units, I'll treat this a beta testing and will gladly help out, entirely your call.
Try the "Silly Putty" Mod!
To see how you might like the sound, listen to music with the silver filters and while playing, cover up the tuning ports on the ends with your fingertips. If, like me, you find that the bass decreases slightly but becomes much tighter and punchier while still letting the mids and treble shine, then get some tape or (in my case) silly putty or anything non-permanent and cover up the ports. Then listen and see if you like the change.
I definitely did!
