Received them on Friday from ALO Audio. Seems like it took about 6-10 hours for them to do most of their burning in. A huge change in SQ over that time. Put on my HD600's a few minutes ago, for the first time since Friday. Been wearing the Fitears's most of each day. My first pair of IEM's. What a totally different experience. Outragous!! I'm so glad I went for the big bucks and bypassed the mid ground. Very easy on my ears. More so then my HD600. I think it has a lot to do with the way the sound is delivered to my ear. My headphone feel all closed in compared to the Fitears. I'm having a lot of fun, and hearing some nice tunes.
The bad is ALO Audio. I build a lot of my stuff and thats a part of my audio hobby. I get off on listening to music on stuff Ive built( all from kits). So when I got my Fitears the first thing I wanted to do was make some braided silver-plated cables. I sourced the wire and mini plug, but found there are NO aftermarket Fitear connectors available. After two phone calls and two emails to ALO they finally sent me an e-mail letting me know that they were unable to sell me a pair of pin connectors. Jeez, I've just spent $1,350 with these guys not 72 hrs earlier. I wrote back asking if they could suggest an alternative but they are obviously not really interested in my business or me as a customer, so I haven't heard back. I guess I can make a model,a mold and cast one myself. Tried buying a set from Brian.Goto, but he hasn't gotten back to me either. A bummer until I get it figured out.
Fiio X5, arrives tomorrow. Been using my I phone which sucks. Made a nice silver-plated braided 4ft extension this morning so I could listen through my Emotiva Dac. That is such a nicer sound then the I phone. Anybody have any suggestions for 334 connectors, they would be appreciated....Max
