Very good cable

 

I'm pretty confident with the build quality - but only time will tell.

 

I'm with you and those pics do look great, just to call build quality completely covered is really a bit of a stretch at this point. We won't know for sure before a number of people have been using their production units for some time.

 

For example, 2 out of the 3 most common issues on the Tenores are caused by internal shortcomings that are invisible from outside.

On my latest Titan 1 review, cheap generic triple flange and double flange sound better than SpinFit.  Hopefully Trinity has done their due diligent to test all the 3 models with various eartips and includes the optimum ones.

 

Personally, I haven't found a pair of IEMs that sounds better with SpinFits. They increase warmth and decrease detail on everything I've tried, and from their design it's not hard to see why.

Completely covered from a 'physical appearance' James, a physical assessment of the materials used in comparison. No, I haven't run around swinging them from the end of a tree or testing their durability. I think we're blowing the original statement a little upwind here regardless.


Time will tell my friend. :smile:

:) Woo Hoo! Just pledged the Deltas!!! As long as none of you are in Your 80's, I'll trust your hearing and reviews.

 

I'm going to need to see your Birth certificates though....

how is isolation on the Delta? say, for use in a plane. 

post #365 of 4329

I'm with the group of people three pages back.  I am completely happy with the kickstarter purchase as it is.  I got Hyperion and Delta.  If Bob wants to throw in a stretch reward, that is fine, but I, too, hope he doesn't stress too much about it.  The packaging as presented seems to be quite enough for me.  Anything additional would be like Christmas (or whatever your favorite surprise gift holiday might be.)

 

If provided, the angled adapter is fine by me...

 

Also.  I was taking a look at my current portable rig and thought, "If I got something nifty from Trinity, would I use it, and where would I put it?" My thought of a simple, cheap, and reasonable stretch reward would be a "Trinity Audio - KickStarter Backer" hinged tin.  I would use it to put my extra silicone tips, extra filters, and 1/8" to 1/4" inch adapter.

 

Here are pictures of my current portable rig that I grab for on the go.  The Altoids tin in the bottom back left is what I'm referencing.

 

 

Here is a picture of How I currently use it.  Tips and adapter.  (with foam from a pelican case to keep them in place)

 

 

A quick google search shows that a mini sized Hinged Rectangular Tin (same size as the Altoids Can) is about (inches) 2-3/8L x 1-9/16W x 11/16D.  A case of 864 runs $0.45 each = $388.80.

 

Not sure what screen printing or engraving would cost.  But I would suggest a single print, not engraving each backer's name on it.  That would take wayyy too much time to engrave, and then Bob would have to track it, and match each gift with an individual.  Not something I would expect anyone to do, much less a small business getting off the ground.

 

To me, this seems to be a respectably low cost stretch reward with great functionality.

I am only providing this as a suggestion of something that I use and I would find value in it.  As always, YMMV, to each his own, eye of the beholder, etc.

If Bob found that time and funds allow for your suggestion @Howlin Fester, I'd be down for that. Just something simple that says Trinity Audio and Kickstarter would be fine I agree. I'd still be concerned about cost a little since, while not as expensive as tiny laser-etching, would still cost some in equipment cost for stamping. The upside is that it's reusable for selling the tin as an accessory after the KS and just stamping Trinity Audio into the tin without Kickstarter. He really doesn't need to stress too much about the stretch goals though, we knew what we were getting when we signed up for the KS campaign. Everything from here on out is just deliciously fattening icing on the cake :tongue:

These are my feelings. My satisfaction with these IEMs is not going to rely on some stretch goal added to the already outstanding value that is apparent. Other than some unforeseen issue that arises with extended use or something like that, these IEMs should be well worth the KS prices without getting anything extra. It is good to see it being so successful for Trinity as well. So, anything thrown in is just icing on the cake at this point.

Hi folks

A little late to the party, but now Trinity is an official head-fi sponsor I can field any questions you have.

I have to say a MASSIVE thank you to mark2410, Brooko and H20fidelity for having the patients of saints and working with me tirelessly to guide Trinity in the right direction.

Cheers
Bob

Now come on Bob, you spelt my name wrong. I thought we'd been through this already.

Good to see you active with the members. wink.gif

Thread Starter 

Pleasure has been ours Bob.  Been an enjoyable process watching these take shape.

 

Might be a good time to advise that we're currently relooking at the Techne filters tuning to make sure they are perfect before launch in June.  I'll change my current review after I get replacements.

post #374 of 4329
Great to be here guys. Thanks for the welcome.

As Brooko pointed out, we are making some last minute tweaks to the techne filters so each one gives a distinct sound signature, that's not to say that they don't now, just they have to be just right and have the right balance of all the right ingredients.

Will only take a short while and will be more than ready for delivery time smily_headphones1.gif

Good idea!

An IEM case with some divider inside the case for eartips and adapter!!!  That would be a very nice stretch reward!!!
