edit: you mentionned in there that the shell's rather big, can you still lay your head on the side of a pillow with them?

yep, I can lay my head with no pain on my pillow ;)

Ok. After 168 hours of being played-in, I can now say that the music coming out of the two bores is just breathtaking. Of the 24 years I have been a seriously dedicated audiophile I have rarely encountered a component that has blown my mind the way the Encores are doing it. Things I thought impossible from a portable audio transducer are being done by these unimpressive looking pieces of silicon, these CIEMS are the Benchmark of Musicality on the go and beyond. ACS has definitely set a standard that in my opinion will be very difficult to supersede. I can now stop searching, at least for a number of years, I wouldnt know what more to expect.

Have you demoed Jh Layla or Andgie to these?
post #319 of 1019

would like to know where it ranks among your full sized headphones rigs

post #320 of 1019

I have demoed (2 days of demo ^^) Roxannes vs. EM32, to me, that's not the same league with that metallic tone / lack of weight... Well, that's certainly the same level of detail and both soundstage are amazing, but the EM32 are much more coherent, realistic, bodied... No doubt that Angies and Layla are excellent IEMs, but knowing JHaudio, that's not the same approach of musicality.

Here's s a fit pic from me:)

You know they're not well inserted ?

post #323 of 1019

I was going to make the same comment. They are not even in!

post #324 of 1019
He may have really small ears and short canals, there for making the shell longer they could be all the way in.
post #325 of 1019

No. It is pretty obvious from the picture that the cymba part of the shell isn't inserted properly.

 

PS: Wasn't it Soundblast than complained earlier in this thread about the fit not being right for both earpieces?  :rolleyes:

You need to twist is so the top corner is underneath the fold of skin. If you can't do that then you should get on to ACS for a refit. The isolation can't be great if you're wearing them like that. You're probably missing out on lots of bass too.

Haha guys you are all wrong, you think I wouldn't know if sounds not good ot i have no bass:)
All it is is that side has more silicon,its thicker and I can't shove it anymore in than that.
Sound is sublime, I wouldn't have even started this thread if i had any doubts.
I also have sang many praises about the bass👍

If anything my only complaint is the cable.pisses me off every time i take em out.
No complaints about the sound tho
post #329 of 1019

Then as Tony said I would definitely ask for a refit. Seriously! If you still have doubt send the picture to ACS and they will be able to help.
