    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Would anyone be interested in a headphone swap for a week or two? I have a couple of headphones and some Iems to choose from. I'm looking at the Xelento since I've realized any IEM that goes into my ear just hurts (really small ear canal). But my Beyer Beat Byrd are perfect. However, I'm kind...

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Does anyone know how the Xelento fit compares to Beyer Byrd IEMs? I have the Beyer Beat Byrd and their fit with their stock silicone tips is the only IEM I've ever used that I find actually comfortable.

    Semi-IEM thread?

    This is an awesome start! Googling that does come up with a good bit of results. Mostly Airpod type earphones, but it's better than nothing. The Xelento is a half-in ear?

    Semi-IEM thread?

    So I've given up on IEMs. Putting something inside my ear canal just doesn't work for me unfortunately (I've tried many, with many many eartips). Today I received a pair of custom silicone eartips, and it kind of sealed the deal that IEMs are not for me. Earbuds usually don't work for me...

    How do custom eartips compare to CIEMs?

    I tried the radians before. Getting the bore to fit correctly is hard, and you only get one shot. After 3 tries I gave up on that one. They also sounded terrible. I actually just purchased thermoplastic too. I've been practicing, but this stuff hardens very quickly. And I'd rather not stick...

    How do custom eartips compare to CIEMs?

    That does sound pretty great. If I went with a CIEM it would probably be a budget option, but since I really like the R1s, it would be great to make them more comfortable and fit my canal correctly. Have you ever had the issue I mentioned with universals? And if so, did it go away with the...

    How do custom eartips compare to CIEMs?

    I have this issue with typical silicone or foam tips where the IEM needs to be oriented in a very specific way to get clean sound, otherwise it sounds muffled. And with my current IEMs (IMR R1), this is a pretty uncomfortable orientation. I don't have this issue with shallow fit earbuds like...

    LZ A5

    Where did you buy your A5s? When I had a driver failure, LZ basically told me "Tough luck. Hopefully Amazon can help you." I really miss these IEMs, but I'm not getting within 10 miles of an expensive product that has no quality assurance.

    LZ A5

    I had an issue with the left driver of my pair when I owned them. I contacted LZ and they said they don't handle customer service claims and don't do repairs. The only thing I can do is contact the seller I got it from (Amazon) and cross my fingers. Which I did, and luckily they accepted it. But...

    [UPDATED] Arizona Head-Fi MiniCon the Second: September 15th, 2018

    Is there anyone with a pair of Fostex Th900s going to the meet?
