    Focal Elegia - what do you think?

    If it helps you, the founder of Focal was a giant Pink Floyd fan. And I ffind listening to Pink Floyd with the Elegia quite enjoyable. Listening to Take it Back from The Division Bell right now. Don't own any John Denver, but Folk and Country should be very good too.

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    I drive my HD800 from the WM1A loud enough on High Gain balanced, there is plenty of power.

    You remind me that R.E.M. has not been in contact with my IE900 so far. That must change tonight. Thanks for bringing it up.

    You can and should. Yesterday I came to the conclusion, that I absolutely would purchase the IE900 again if I had ever lost it. It is that good.

    Let me correct you, I am someone with a lot of experience in life. I don't fit into categories. What if I am right?

    So the people at Brise found a way to have a cable sound like trash, but kinda repair itself within 150 hours of usage. Boy that is excellent engineering. The sound blackout on your first listen was a side effect of their magic engineering process go live. That is world class ........

    Well so far I did not find any track in my music library which did not sound excellent with the Sony WM1A Sennheiser IE900 combo. On the balanced out on high gain. With stock cable and stock firmware. I am listening through my Supertramp collection right now. Excellent job @Sennheiser...

    I will only get me aftermarket cables if I need a different connector, which is not included. The IE900 comes with all connectors which I need.

    That is the good thing here the hiss is nearly completely absent. I know exactly why you ask this. With some headphones this hiss is rather obvious.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Yes. It comes wirh the 4.4mm cable so you are good to go. I like that combo very much.

    There is one advise for good seal with silikon tips. I grease them a little bit with kokos fat, it makes them smoother and helps the seal a lot. I just have best experience with this practice since my Sony MDR-EX1000. It took me days to get a proper permanent seal. I still have those...

    The bass is audible and I can feel it, but this is not my piece of cake at all.

    Got mine too, could only listen to four tracks. Took the big stock tips with shallow insertion, isolation is great, bass is perfect. The cable is very very good, I will never change it. More impressions will come later.
