    The Watercooler-- Impressions, philosophical discussion and general banter. Index on first page. All welcome.

    I think what we're seeing now is better leveraging of drivers - especially on the idea of coherency and driver optimisation so that they're operating at their optimum frequencies. Look at Subtonic Storm for instance, BA + EST, but meticulous detail in getting the best out of each driver. I hope...

    I'm hoping sometime in Sept after the initial batch gets shipped to dealers etc.

    Well old 'cooler - I have finally decided on my next TOTL IEM now that I have some money in the kitty from selling Traillii! And the winner is......Subtonic Storm! Ok firstly it's a lot of money, but YOLO and all that! I also have to thank Elise Audio/ @SoundJedi for indulging me with a another...

    I think you may like it - I managed to try a fellow head-fiers at the show and for me it was a bit peaky and not quite my tuning versus the MEXT. But technically it's very solid and the boner works really well in it.

    Ah good point. The standard. Is there a difference with the clear material wise?

    Take comfort I'd take Storm over that combo still......

    I'm very happy with smaller crystals to shove them in the ears, but was curious! Definitely an idea to try a few more in the future!

    Crikey the price on MTM is so crazy....especially if you want different sizes, it all adds up!

    Oriolus Traillii Electrostatic Hybrid IEM discussion thread

    I really need more time with the Storm - it's a very competent IEM, going for a more reference sound, very effortless in delivery. Great dynamics, good soundstage and central imaging. I just don't think I want that from a TOTL IEM, especially one so expensive. I prefer my TOTLs to be a little...

    Oriolus Traillii Electrostatic Hybrid IEM discussion thread

    Awesome, definitely a pleasure to meet you! Nope, a cable which is almost the same price as the iem, no way. Plus it is still an uncomfortable iem. Plus Storm is definitely better than traillii vs the combined price of the Bird and Laura. Too many caveats :) I think for my all BA, I may get...

    Oriolus Traillii Electrostatic Hybrid IEM discussion thread

    Laura and Traillii was utterly epic - I have forgotten the chap's name who leant me his Traillii late on Sunday - if he sees this, thank you!

    My EXN is burning in very well - quite happy if i must say so myself with how things are progressing! Definitely more dynamic and lush. With an IEM like the Elysian X which can on most sources feel 'thin' in the mids, the mod gives it so much heft and balances it out nicely.

    It's crazy. I have to be careful with selling, I just can't budge the GBP price, it's nuts! I ordered a few items from the US too, that was painful too...

    Aah ok! I found that forgiveness came with burn in, so maybe the case here too. But I also don't have iems with flaws in that area. My spiciest set is the X and no issues. Have to say I'm liking this more dynamic 3max. It may kill my p6pro....

    So mine has also made it. Really like the SS back on mine too! Im around 15 hours in. I agree with a lot of your comments. Definitely a darker background and the lack of colouring compared to what it was previously is pretty obvious. I like that a lot. Soundstage still has the same width but...

    Interesting can't wait to hear mine. I guess you also need to give some time for burn in or has that already been done?

    To add my 3MAX is also with nayparm - i wanna see what a souped up zombie sounds like. I can't wait. It does feel as if this should help unlock some of the remaining potential of the 3MAX, maybe also help with some of the dynamics for headphones too!

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    I still think you need a personal bias factor in the spreadsheet!

    I think I'm gonna try it on p6pro (ldac streaming). Loving the new z1r profile L&P created
