    Don't worry! These are some seriously impressive IEMs.

    Yeah I knew that....cough. Thanks. I am #142. I feel this is a special and significant number that entitles me to extra stuff or special faster delivery. The more I think about it, the more obvious it seems.

    In many parts of the world £200 is a very decent monthly salary for a skilled person, or even a professional. In other places, like here in UK, it doesn't cover the rent/mortgage for a week for many people. I'm English and haven't left the UK for about 8 years but I used to live in S.E. Asia and...

    I check them daily on waking, thank you.

    I just want to endorse that comment and opinion. After visiting Flare Audio it is very clear that they are firmly rooted in Pro Audio, i.e. stage, venue, festival, studio, event and so on. There were already some high end consumer/domestic products but the focus is or has been on licensing the...

    Men's health???? So, if I wear the R2s my balls will stop aching? I didn't notice at the time, but maybe that's why the train journey home felt more comfortable than the outward bound trip. It's all very mystical. Om. Om. Ommmmm. OMFG.

    I tried some cheap foams, very clearly generic Comply imitations, and they were terrible due to not having the elasticity/expandability of the Comply tips. I guess they might work somewhat for people with very narrow ear canals. I've lost count of the different tips I've tried with all kinds of...

    Objectivists board room

    My top 4: haemorrhoids, socialism, weak beer, people who think they are objective and rational just because they claim it to be so.

    I've requested a version made of mature cheddar in case I feel peckish. I don't think a woody version is such a bad idea so long as it has chrome embellishments, luxurious velour upholstery and is fully compatible with my semi-portable 8-Track cartridge player and combo hernia truss. It's the...

    Flare Audio R2PRO Kickstarter campaign

    I had a relatively limited time with the R2A and R2Pro (hours, not days or weeks) but I didn't notice a difference between the two models in this respect. There may be such a difference but it was not apparent to me in the time I spent and with the tracks and equipment I used. As I stated in my...

    As far as I understood it as Davies did his best to explain it to me the difference isn't ascribed to rigidity. In such a tiny form and with the tubes CNC milled from a block, there can't be any great difference between the relative rigidity of aluminium, steel, or titanium in this application...
