    [REVIEW] Alclair Reference

      Maybe you were just a lucky customer! Seeing how they "just" changed internal components, we can assume that the RSM and Reference are definitely two different CIEMs rather than assuming the RSM is a Reference with an additional driver, which is quite the baseless assumption.     Quite...

    [REVIEW] Alclair Reference

      I did not know that you could upgrade the Reference to the Quads. If this is true, in 2~years time when the fit for their CIEMs start to get worse, instead of getting them refitted, investing a little more money to upgrade them might be a nice alternative, but that all depends on how much the...

    [REVIEW] Alclair Reference

    Alclair Reference   As a few close members may have noticed, I have been mostly inactive on Head-Fi for a while now due to various reasons. With my Head-Fi hiatus, I have been able to focus on school and other hobbies, and also gave my wallet some time to recover, until I found other things to...

    Sleek Audio SA7 Impressions, and Discussion Thread!

      Had the PFE232 for an extensive time, but sold it long before getting the SA7. From memories, I prefer the PFE232 by a country mile. The bass was deeper, cleaner, and surprisingly sounded very dynamic rather than BA. Can't comment on the mids too much as my memory is fuzzy, but I remember the...

    Westone UM Pro 10 or Klipsch X10? (or Westone 2's for $50 more)

    Oh yeah, forgot about the tips. I'm 80% sure that they will work... Only because I haven't used them on the HF5, but I did have the oval tips until I lost my last pair. Unfortunately, I haven't tried the two together prior to losing the tips.   Np, I try to help to the best of my ability, even...

    Westone UM Pro 10 or Klipsch X10? (or Westone 2's for $50 more)

      I don't exactly remember, but when I insert my HF5 completely with the large tri-flange tips, it almost disappears.     Similarly to what I said earlier, the HF5 may sound bass light to most at first, but this is only because the HF5 (and ER-4) measure so well. There is no bass bloat...

    Westone UM Pro 10 or Klipsch X10? (or Westone 2's for $50 more)

    I would seriously consider the Etymotic HF5 if I were you. Even after using CIEMs and high-end universals for quite some time, coming back to the HF5 always manages to surprise me. Most people don't realize how clean the HF5 and ER-4S sound until you seriously compare them.   The reason why...

    Sleek Audio SA7 Impressions, and Discussion Thread!

    Hey guys! I was lucky enough to win the SA7 in the Facebook giveaway event and I gotta say that I'm pretty excited to give Sleek a try again. After their SA6 experience, I was pretty hesitant on purchasing their SA7 but since I won one I'm more than intrigued now haha. I really hope that the...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Quote:   Never did like the W4, as a few members already know of my hatred towards them. There's nothing "special" about them so I never bothered with them, obviously.   Quote:   I know it's difficult to determine value and whatever as everyone has their own perspective of...

    Vancouver meeting for IEM comparison (UERM & MOD Tf 10pro).

    Even if the TF10 comes close to the UERM, the ergonomics of the TF10 is simply awful. Also, seeing how modding the TF10 is essential to "match" the UERM, this won't appeal to many enthusiasts, but nevertheless, I might be interested in participating.   Lets see how it turns out

    Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead

    Quote:   Yes, it was good. I didn't get to compare with the Gungir, but the Concero doesn't have that aggressive/shouty tone the Gungir is known for. The LCD-2, Mjolnir, and Concero, I think, is one hell of a package that you can stick with for a while. Only minor issue is the lack of...
