    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Maybe true.  Although I sold my K10s just fine.  The real reality is that us idiots spending $2k on headphones shouldn't be doing so if we're worried about resale value.

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    I really like the idea of a single dynamic driver able to do it all.  The specs are impressive.  I just can't imagine dropping $2k on anything but a custom.

    Advanced AcousticWerkes W900 Hybrid Flagship Thread

    I can only compare from memory, because I upgraded my W500, but I will say I consistently find myself discovering new detail in bass tracks that I didn't hear with the W500.  The W500 did not have one note bass at all, but the W900 is even further from that concept.  I think some may be hearing...

    Advanced AcousticWerkes W900 Hybrid Flagship Thread

    Wow, the fit on these is soooo nice.  I'm already enjoying these headphones so much.  First impressions are a bit of a relief.  The bass is still seriously impactful, but I can hear more detail in the notes that I was unaware of before.  That's interesting for sure.  Soundstaging is indeed...

    Advanced AcousticWerkes W900 Hybrid Flagship Thread

      I figured it was just an amateur review.  Honestly, we are spoiled by the likes of Twister6 and Crinacle.  I was turned on to AAW because of these guys and I've made my way through the lineup because of them.  I've been in this hobby for many years and I love when I find a reviewer who hears...

    Did you find the turnaround time faster than expected?  I'm two weeks in on my W900 wait.  AAW was two weeks early on my original W500 purchase.

    They sold me the W900 for the difference of the full value of the W500 AHMorph and the promotional pricing.  That's an amazing deal I could not pass up.  I would have probably sold the W500 after receiving the W900 anyway.  This was a massive deal, which saved me some time of eBay or Audiogon.

    Buying Help - Focal Elear vs Advanced Acousticwerkes W500 AHMorph

    I actually went with the W500 since I was kind of in a CIEM phase to begin with after the Noble K10.  I uneqivoally adore the W500.  It blows the K10 away IMHO.  It's amazingly musical and just fun to listen to without any fatigue after long hours.  I achieved these results with both the Chord...

    FYI to anyone with a W500, I just learned AAW is offering upgrades to the W900.  I just set the ball in motion.

    Ok, I'm selling my Chord Mojo.  I've been jamming out hard at my office desk with the iFi iDSD Black for a week now and the iFi just does it for me.  Listening on my AAW W500 AHMorph customs, I am head bobbing and bouncing my knees.  This thing just makes music fun as hell.  It's not that the...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    Alternatively, is your friend using a Empire Ears Zeus?  Those CIEMs have hiss even on the Chord Mojo.  I tested a universal version and find hiss at that price level to be a design flaw.
