    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    That was me. I can’t stress enough that the T2Pro is way too bright for me without foam (Comply TS) tips. The foamies arguably transform them into a different IEM. So while the FDX1 may be less forgiving than the T2P, it’s not because of brightness. It’s because of better detail and resolution...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    I have the P1 on loan from a buddy, and there are a few things about its tonality that bug me a tiny bit: There seems to be something missing in the lower treble area; while at the same time I swear I hear a spike way up like around 15-16KHz- according to my eq and admittedly at the upper...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    JVC HA-FDX1 A Review… sorta. More like a few opinions and observations. Good: Excellent resolution, neutral-plus tonality, dynamic driver bass, A+ hardware, and of course- tunability. Meh: Nozzles just a tad on the large side, a bit heavy. Given: Hardware is functionally identical to the...

    Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 IEM

    I got a copy of these for eval and sent CEETEE some brief impressions: Massdrop EDC3: Tonally, these are almost perfect. They might be a bit soft up top for my tastes- (you know) my personal preference leans toward a bit of lower-treble bite ala Noble Savant. I like stuff on the bright or even...

    Reply to review by 'Mkubota1' on item 'Massdrop x NuForce EDC3'

    My listening impressions are darn-near identical. I'm a bit of a treble-head too, so I think many will find the level of high frequencies on the EDC3 to be perfect. @airil I've heard the 1MORE Triple once, and from my notes I'd say that the 1MORE is a bit more "fun" sounding (more treble...

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

      I suspect the site is set up so that you place your order (CIEM or reshell) via the form from this page: https://www.inearz.com/how-to-order.  But that doesn't really help if you just want "parts". You can probably just email Kaysen Fisher <KAYSEN@fisherhearing.com>, tell her what you want...

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

    Quote:   These are the Olives I have: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015PN3W6  They look similar with the exception of the wax guard. So I would imagine they would have the same effect (minus the wax guard), assuming all other things being equal. What might not be equal is what the tips...

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

      I just had some reshells done- TripleFi10 and Westone 4. I'll start with the W4.   From my personal experience and from what I've read, sonically the W4 is very much like the W40 if not the same. Whatever your thoughts are on that, the effects of the reshell should be applicable to either...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    I don't think it has been mentioned; but this 'X' also has a MUCH improved memory wire, versus the one that came on the older Savant, Savanna, etc.      New cable on the left, old cable on the right.   It's similar to the one on the newer Westones if you're familiar with that one. It holds a...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

      Nope- if you simply rotate them 180 degrees, the wire will hit your ear lobes. If you reverse them (L/R > R/L) the housing will get in the way and you'll probably find it impossible to get a decent seal. If I recall there are certain IEMs you can do this with (Sennheiser IE80?); but this...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

      Despite their size, not heavy at all. I'd almost call them light considering their size. Side by side I can't really feel the weight difference between these and TripleFis or Westones.

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

      Vs. the Savant, less HF. Not overly warm by any means, but definitely tonally warmer than the Savant.
