    A Review of MandarinEs Foam Tips

    Any guess which diameter might fit B&O E8s? thanks!

    Beoplay E8

    Thanks for the tip regarding the sound-stage setting. I had not even noticed this option. I like them much better now that I have maxed it out. I had found the E8s great on vocal and simple instrumental but thought they seemed confused with larger orchestral works and rock. Expanding the...

    JH Audio & Astell&Kern Siren Series Full Metal Jacket Line Announced!

    Can't say I like the idea of aluminum instead of acrylic/CF.  I have been holding off ordering, but thinking I should get my Angies while they are still plastic.  I have a few CIEMs, but there are times where the softness of comply tips and a comfortable IEM designs (for me Shure or Westone) is...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    I saw that too, and actually wondered if it was a mistake on Amazon's part.  Maybe they got the models mixed up.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    I am looking forward to trying on a set when they appear somewhere.   Hoping they would be comfortable for LONG flights!

    Review: Estron Linum BaX --- New IEM Cable for a New Age

    I have the BAX and really do not pick up a difference in tangle from the other cords I have.  They all can be a pain at times.  One plus for the BAX is a really useful cinch.  When putting away, I try to remember to cinch it up to the CIEMs.  This reduces the tangle factor a lot.

    yeah, it's a tough call.  The clear looks great, but shows the green copper oxidation.  The beige makes it look like a hearing aid.  So it's either clear and replace once a year or black.  I went back to black.

    I also have dark blue with clear on the ones I purchased years ago.  Nice look.  But I think black is a little more current.

    1964 Ears

    Well, finally ordered a set of V8s.  Since I have a set of transparent blue UEs, I wanted to go a little wilder on this pair.  Lots of good photos out there, so decided on Teak . . . Transparent brown bodies, and a red tip to help me identify Right.  (Initials are in Papyrus font.  Thought it...

    1964 Ears

      I think this looks great!  Really like the colored translucent faceplate with clear.  Regarding the cables, all of my clear have oxidized green.  (Wonder if silver cables oxidize black or stay silver?)    I finally got tired of it and went black, even though for a design like this I like...

      Just a comment on soft acrylic canals.  I have not seen the 1964 version of soft canals, but I did have soft-canals on one pair of my Ultimate Ears back when they offered the option.  I had one pair of UE standard and one pair of the UE soft-canals, both made from the same impressions.  ...

      Thanks!  So many choices.  For a change from my UEs, I am thinking solid black with initials. The choice is solid black acrylic, or solid black with wood faceplates.  I saw a few photos of this look at their site.  Hoping to get the OK on the impressions tomorrow.

    1964 Ears

    Finally think I have a set of impressions, so plan to order. I am thinking of the V8 to complement my more neutral UE10Pro. When flying, the bass on the UE gets lost in the background noise. A side benefit of the V8 might be that I could listen at lower volume. The UE10s need a certain level...
