    Review: Spiral Ear SE 5-way Reference - A new level of resolution? (Review posted 5/15/12)

    If I can put my 2 words here, I can compare SE5U more to the LCD4 than LCD3f with lighter sound but with less sparkle at the top than LCD4. It is true that SE5U is very transparent and it's very source dependant so they will shine with very good matchings (high quality of course) but they also...

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

    Yeah, I can enjoy tia Fourte as well so can't go wrong with them but I just personally was looking something like this for a long time so I'm happy. I'm not happy with the pricing of those products (or my budget) though... Oh well, I guess it's just another lifes challenge:p

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

    Hi there, I have also been at London CanJam (my first) and must to say that it was smaller than I tought but very interesting experience to listen to lost of TOTL IEMs from top of the shelf. I missed the W900 and others from the top 10 pack but I have my favourite for this shootout:] I'm...

    Hi! Here are some pics of my new and fresh H8.2 in silicone. I didn't think much about color design but I like mix of black and yellow so Cusotm Art made the swirl with those colours in mettalic.  Looks good but fit and comfort  (after small correction) is amazing. Easy to put in and out...

    Great colors! Can you post some more pics?  I don't know why, but I really like looking at CIEMs, especially well made. Waitng for mine, gotta be here any day. I just finished soldering DIY hybrid silver/copper (high purity & quality) cable and I'm confident it will be incredible match...

     A bit of everything i might say, little less rock than other genres and i'm not classical fan too much.

    Astell&Kern AK380

    If u guys hear difference with that in your AK380Cu that could means really bad reputation in their product design... This should not be happening in $4000 DAP. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Review: Spiral Ear SE 5-way Reference - A new level of resolution? (Review posted 5/15/12)

    I never liked Ref, it sounded dark/dull to me that's why i upgraded it. Ult feel better but it's not night and day, again - still 5way;] It's more neutral and refined, transparent, source dependent. Btw i'm putting mine on sale so PM me if u're interested;]

    Astell&Kern AK380

    I don't hear any difference with my AK320 with or without case and this is used with very sensitive and most detailed CIEMs available. I think it's just your brain playing tricks on U and these words can mislead other members. So please dear members, don't let thet them trick U too;] I can...

    Review: Spiral Ear SE 5-way Reference - A new level of resolution? (Review posted 5/15/12)

    I agree. When tested all of the LCD headphone line I noticed some similarities with SE 5way earphones: to me LCD3 sounded quite similar to Ref with dense and kinda heavy tone but without sparkle ine the top end. Ultimate are pretty similar to LCD4 - light bass, light mids and light highs. I had...

    Astell&Kern AK380

    Did u try it with other TOTL C/IEMs or headphones? This big difference u're hearing is probably from good pairing of JH series with AK products. I've heard from a lot of people that it  they're having a blast with their Laylas but when it comes to other setups the difference is marginal.

    Hidition NT-6 Custom IEM Review: The Ultimate Reference?

    Wow! I didn't expect that long answer so fast!  Nice genre spread;] I noticed NT6 works best with natural instruments plus vocals of course. But I feel like they need some bass and treble temper with electronic music, just a bit. Would that Whiplash hybrid brings some of those options?

    Hidition NT-6 Custom IEM Review: The Ultimate Reference?

    Did u listen do your NT6 with any other aftermarked good quality cable? I'm wondering is that paring is perfect or NT6 are that much component dependent. I just got my AK320 and Mojo and after few hours of testing (both were used so burned in for proper listening) i can say that NT6 will as...
