    1964 Ears

    @fueltank I have first generation quads (which I was told are much warmer than later revisions) - and these are like a scaled up version but with noticeably more clarity in the highs and mids as well as sharper imaging and a wider soundstage.  The bass is also arranged in a different manner.  I...

    JDS O2+ODAC

    I'm in the market for a o2+odac, however, it looks like yours requires a cable looping from the back to the front; defeating the purpose of having a single case unit.  That's probably why there hasn't been much interest.  I'd personally rather either having o2 and odac be completely separate or...

    1964 Ears

    I use the V6 stage with my iPhone 5 as well, but I much prefer listening out of my Audinst (HUD-MX1).  I'm not a believer in cables and amps making improvements to sound, but the sound is indeed noticeably different between the two (I would definitely be able to tell them apart in a blind test)...

    1964 Ears

    re-edited the original post because i forgot to mention there's more midbass and less subbass compared to the quads. or just less subbass leading to the perception of more midbass. oops!

    1964 Ears

    no status updates, i patiently waited for exactly one month (they received impressions and payment sept 18th, shipped today oct 18th), and they simply sent a fedex tracking notification email with nothing else.  i decided that i could wait and it would be best to not use up their man-hours...

    1964 Ears

    wow, i love the thorough response, thanks!!  which earphones do you recommend to people with different tastes, i.e. strengths and weaknesses of the v6s, se846, jh13 freqphase?    for me, i want much better imaging (than my quads).  detail and lush shure mids are definitely things that i look...

    1964 Ears

    Hey TimOgawa,  I see you have the V6-Stage universal demo.  Just wondering if you had any impressions on how they are imaging, soundstage, and instrumental separation wise compared to the Quads (which i currently have) and the v6 (the comparison that most people will be looking at).  Or any...

    1964 Ears

    coming from someone who has experienced similar, for two impressions, don't worry about it. my audiologist pushes the dams way past my second bend (for a great mold) and the tissues are sensitive there.  i guess it was like a dull sting but nothing unbearable, maybe worth a small wince.  if the...

    1964 Ears

    hey lauraar90, just wondering what day you got the confirmation from 1964 that they added your order to the queue after receiving impressions & payment. i think it would be really helpful to all who are anxiously waiting for their orders to have a more accurate ETA!

    1964 Ears

    i won't be able to answer that for you, but i when i compared my quads to the um3x, the quads were incredibly v-shaped compared to the um3x, which by comparison was boosted in the mids by quite a bit.  you could also either say the um3x had recessed treble or the quads had boosted treble, most...

    JH Audio JH5pro thread

    i take it that, both of you may be biased if your opinions are that polarized? my friend was floored by trying my quads, and i have mostly positive things to say about my 1964 quads.  doesn't really mean anything...

    Westone ES5

    could it be your own ears? try it across multiple iems, and switch sides / cables too. i ran frequency sweeps on my own ears with multiple iems and flipped channels. my left ear is down at least couple of dB around 9khz-10khz due to drumming for years with the hi hat killing my left ear over time.

    1964 Ears Quad "Q", a throrough (and long) review

    i heard the pro900 back to back against the quads a couple days ago, and i have to say i miss out on the mids with the pro900, the bass and treble presence make the mids shrink back by comparison.  i like the se535, srh1840, westone 4, beyer t1s, but the pro900s wouldn't be my cup of tea if were...
