    The Apple diyMod: My Take on the Famous iMod [56k killer] Featuring 3G, 4G, 5G and nano 1G!

      I also have not tested the sonic differences between different gauges of wire, however, I think the quality of the wire is most important. I used to really rate solid core Mundorf Silver / Gold, till I tried stranded Silver Poison from Toxic. The Toxic wire beats the pants off of Mundorf...

    The Apple diyMod: My Take on the Famous iMod [56k killer] Featuring 3G, 4G, 5G and nano 1G!

      I would contact Frank at Toxic Cables for a silver poison or silver widow ( both high purity silver + differing percentages of gold ) LOD. Not sure if he does them with caps or not, but there really good wires. I have used both with my DIYmod, and the difference between those wires, and...

    How are the ASG-2? I have been put off Aurisonic after trying the ASG-1's... I am however interested in the possibilities of hybrid IEM's.

    Here here!   I have loads of good stuff that's made in China. I bought a pair of Astrotec AX-60's from bigbargainonline, and they are excellent IEM's, both in SQ and build quality.

    Id be interested to know if that works too. I got 128gb CF card in my DIYmod, but its getting pretty close to full now.

      First LOD I have made in quite a while. Still in the 'house' style and with an incorporated micro USB charge socket. No more painting on this, I moved over to black milliput.

    Indeed they are.   Very fun and detailed. If the mids were a touch more forward they would be just right for me. However, from my limited experience of different IEM's, there the best I have tried.

      Same rig, different day. Removed the O rings and added some dual lock. Still not sure I like it.   Edit - Not sure I like the dual lock, not the rig. The rigs very pleasing to my ears.

    Toxic Cables - Impressions and Discussion Thread

    There not so large, and very light. Not sure why Frank changed. A bit more bespoke and refined perhaps? Something custom made rather than 'off the shelf' is a bit more special I suppose. The new ones are lovely looking and feeling splitters.

    Singapore Head-Fi Meet 8th December 2013 [Pictures]

    Picture 'quoted'   Pretty sure they are Audio Technica ATH CK100's rather than Final Audio IEM's. Best ever production cable? Quite possibly.   Meet looks great by the way! Loads of tasty gear on display. Im considering attending the next London one when its on.

      They look nice, and there solid, but for me there not that nice to work with. I prefer solder tabs rather than the central rod thing the straight plugs have. And there pretty bulky.

    Astrotec AX60 | Thoughts, Reviews, and Tour Impressions

      I use and love them on a daily basis. I enjoyed your review, and mostly concur with your impressions. So far, I have luckily not had any problems with fit. The soundstage on these is certainly addictive!

    I 'graduated' to a pair of Astrotec AX60. There not the same sig - More of a V shaped 'fun' sig, but definitely an upgrade to my ears.

    IEM/CIEM with a V-Shaped Sound?

    Hows about Astrotec AX-60's? Similar sort of U shaped signature. Very fun and energetic. Great Bass and very good detail levels.

    There pretty cool looking IEM's, but the design looks as though the fit may be problematic. Are they heavy?

    The Apple diyMod: My Take on the Famous iMod [56k killer] Featuring 3G, 4G, 5G and nano 1G!

    Looks very nice. Lovely sleeving on the cable.   That's part of the reason I started to DIY LOD's and IEM cables and all that. I was after a low profile side exit LOD, and at the time all I could find were the likes of ALO etc. Didn't  have the money for those, so had a go myself.

    Yes! Those are the ones. That is a shame. Nice looking cases, and a bit slimmer than the goliath yotanks.   Thanks for the reply.
