    1964 Ears

    Cool reference. It's an equation that has to do with matter-wave duality, though I've always seen it written as λ = h / p

    1964 Ears

    You've needed a 2nd refit on a 1964 Ears product? :eek:

    Reply to review by 'lostark' on item 'Etymotic Research HF5 Portable In-Ear Earphones'

    I edited my review to include a photo of my custom silicone tips by ACS. Not sure why there are multiple comments with remarks about how to insert the earphones after I stated that I had custom sleeves, however potential buyers should know that the reason I have custom sleeves is because I...

    1964 Ears

    For a "newb that doesn't know what he is missing out on" you came admirably close to an ideal level of peace and satisfaction on your first effort; you are to be commended! I'm reasonably sure they'll give you the Black Friday price on the V3; the level of customer service I've received from...

    I actually use custom silicone sleeves made by ACS. Much better seal than any universal tip.

    1964 Ears

    That's not true; mp3 encoded at 320kbps (or even v0) is going to audibly transparent for all intents and purposes, especially for the purpose of portable use. Don't take my word for it, feel free to conduct your own ABX test with apps freely available for both Windows and Mac (foobar2000, ABX...

    1964 EARS V6 Thread

    Welp, just put in an order for a V6S. $580 shipped, probably the best value for customers of ever. Can't wait to compare them to my Shure's!

    1964 EARS V6 Thread

    Trying to decide between V6 and V6S. The V8 is also on the table, but I haven't read much about it. I like the Shure SE535 / SE846, i.e. smooth treble / clear mids. From what I've read people say the V6S > V6, but I've heard some say the V6S can be fatiguing which concerns me as I'm really...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I just saw this image in another thread. I thought the Shure house signature was supposedly mid-centric and warm? So what's the deal with that FR graph?

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Looking for a braided cable for portable use. Most of the cables I've seen look awfully bulky; I'd like something I can coil / stuff in small cases like this.

    Thank you all for the thoughtful replies, especially JackKontney. I am beyond impressed by Sensaphonics customer care. Kunlun, I'm glad to hear from you as well, as I've read many posts you've made with regards to the Future Sonics mg6pro, which is the monitor I plan on buying. Sensaphonics...

    Next logical upgrade?

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys.    I find that my Beyers only have an unpleasant shrill to them when plugged into the Mac / E10 combo.    I have an Asus Xonar DG on my PC, and I don't find the highs fatiguing at all even at high volume.    This has got me wondering:   - Maybe...

    Next logical upgrade?

    Right now I have a Fiio E10 and Beyer DT770 Pro 80's & MMX 300's (which I hear are just 32ohm 770's).   Looking to see if I can't upgrade my dac/amp combo. I'd like to stay under $250, but I can push $300+ for the ideal setup.    Looking for something to take the sibilant edge off my...
