    Headstage Arrow HE: Reviews, Impressions, Perceptions & Sensations

    Is that battery the original from when you bought the 4G? If so, that’s a pretty impressive life for it, my 4G battery has started to die much sooner than it used to, so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s indicative of all of them.

    The retro IEM thread. Lets talk about our old discontinued IEMs

    Still love dusting off my SuperFi 5EB, they were my first “considered” IEM purchase (as opposed to just buying what was available in a store at the time) and they still have great bass even against some of the more recent bass-heavy IEMs.

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Quote: If you're setting up your phone to be a dedicated mp3 player, then that's a good point. But if you're using it frequently for calls and SMS, grafting an amp onto it gets clunky so I get the convenience of plug n' play into the 1/8 out.

    Quote: Who even uses the onboard iPod anymore, with all the superior parametric-Eq style apps available these days?

    Where's the link to make a pre-order for Australia? I got the email saying it starts tonight but I can't actually find a link on it anywhere...

    New Unique Melody Triple Dynamic CIEM announced

    If UM won't give me a free pair (lol) I'm still highly likely to go for the custom version anyway, $600 is very reasonable in comparison to the Merlins.

    New Unique Melody Triple Dynamic CIEM announced

    Quote: I'd be more than happy to write a 1500 word review of the 3DD vs Merlin if UM comes to the party and donates a pair for science!  (But seriously, I'd do it)

    AKG K3003 Universal IEM Review: Challenger to the Custom IEM World?

    I recently trialled a pair of these at the suggestion of someone not on this board who described them as a "custom killer". Overall while I found them to be of a very high quality in both build and sound, they just seemed too... polite. Maybe I've become too used to the deeper insertion of...

    Does a 13mm driver mean more bass response than the Merlin? UM you have my attention.

    Ochre - "National Ignition" just released

    A Midsummer Nice Dream has the greatest of all Ochre tunes "REM Sleep Research". Everything I listened to of Slusnik Luna on YT sounded trance/house oriented, not my thing.

    Ochre - "National Ignition" just released

    Quote: No, I don't much care for trance. I've already got all of Ochre's other recordings, I've been a fan for a long time.

    Klipsch Image X10 Review

    Quote: In some places (eg: Australia) the retail mark-up put them as high as $400*! Scandalous really.    *X10i version, of course.

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Quote: A lot of people complained about the W4 when it first surfaced, too. Apparently price:problem ratio goes up dramatically after $350, despite it still being a universal.

    Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Quote: Lovely, thanks for the response. I do quite like the subbass of the TF10 but I have enough bass-heavy IEMs as it is. Considering picking a pair of these up.

    Which IEMs suffer from driver flex?

    edit: Tell me a place you've had success with before and I will put it up* Draw your own conclusions, I only have the issue on portable players with IEMs, not on full systems or my PC.
