    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    "Has anyone ever tried Nordost flatline cable?" I've had Nordost Gold Flatline Mk II cables for my speakers since 2000 but have never ever considered them for what you're asking about.

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Well my supplies for my DIY HD580/650 headphone cable have arrived (Mogami W2944 wire, 1/8" Techflex, Neutrik 1/4" plug, Senn connectors, and pants boot). OMG this stuff is small compared to the RCA interconnects I previously built. Picture shows both to illustrate the size difference. LOL I...

    TRINITY - PHANTOM Series - New thread + WORLDS FIRST PUSH PULL HYBRID IEM!*

    I've only had the 12 yo and cask strength. The 12 has gone from about $43 a bottle to around $65. And the cask strength was $75 a few years back. The older stuff is way too spendy and the distributor here in flyover country never handled Lustau. The 12 yo has never disappointed!

    TRINITY - PHANTOM Series - New thread + WORLDS FIRST PUSH PULL HYBRID IEM!*

    Haven't been around here in some time but having read a good amount of the last years worth of postings here, I consider myself lucky. My journey with Trinity started with the underappreciated Techne, then the Master 4, followed by the Master. The Master 4 aka PM4 had some manufacturing...

    Sennheiser HD 580 - 600 - 650 replacement drivers not what they seem

    Decided to pull my 1993 vintage HD580s out of storage where they've been since August 2015 due ti a failed left side driver. Ordered a pair of HD650 #092855 System 300R driver capsules. Current pricing is $68.62 each. They'll see duty with my HD600 and SHP9500 cans. :)

    Yeah I enjoyed that for a decade! LOL As an aside in my haste to order those medium Kombi tips I forgot to use the headfi 20% coupon. Then again I don't know that it would have worked along with my points redemption cerftificate. I sure hope they're worth the trouble and easily fit on the...

    Yes I guess the bottom line is the sound that the IEM delivers and indeed I am very pleased with the Masters using gold undampened filters (well balanced, punchy, immersive, 3D sound stage) despite personal fitment issues.* But I would be remiss if I didn't say that I am quite disappointed in...

    Yeah it has been awhile! Aside from the tip issue the sound is the best of my IEMs. For me the best fit among the TAs goes to the Technes, then the PM4s and last these. Funny as my Puro IE500's gave me fits too as far as fit. (see what I did there? hahahahaha) Kinda suprised more folks...

    Bingo! Thanks, the new guide was needed. As an aside from the experimenting I've done I'm liking gold undampened the best just as I did with my PM4s. I'm also back to using my favorite tips: medium Auvios. I've found the Master to be very position sensitive in terms of obtaining a seal and...

    I have the gold undampened filters with wide bore Auvio tips on my PM4. But with the Masters I'm having an issue with tips. Those Auvios that I use on ALL my other IEMs including Trinity's PM4 and Techne are problematic with the Masters. If I move my head they unseal. If I get up to move the...

    TRINITY - PHANTOM Series - New thread + WORLDS FIRST PUSH PULL HYBRID IEM!*

    While I have been exploring the sound of my new Masters I have also been frustrated with the fit. My preferred tips (in medium) that I have on all my other IEMs including the Trinity PM4 and Techne don't work well here. All it takes is some minor head movement and they unseal and then fall out...
