    The Qudelix-5K thread

    they were .5, but the "delay" before reading a single "press" as a "press and hold" was very small, so even a relatively short tap could move it up 2dB. i did ask on their forum that they change the delay time so that that didn't happen less, but i haven't been able to test whether it's actually...

    no news, and it will (in all likelihood) be a tribrid, yes

    oh, but i'm the kind of dumbаss who grabs developer preview software on day 1 for my phone. i like to get things that i trust will eventually be great (and start off at least good), and provide feedback + enjoy new features along the way.

    i apologize in advance, but i'm not going to dignify this silly outburst with a serious response. "i'm MAD that this PRODUCT has been VILIFIED!" "MANY products have EVEN LESS, and are supported REALLY POORLY!" okay? i ordered the product less than an hour after it went live. i was following the...

    eh, yes and no. it's not exactly unexpected and it's certainly understandable, but a product should launch complete with features to be added, not incomplete and needing completion. I know things are a bit Strange in our new world of constant betas and updates and DLC, but it shouldn't be...

    Yeugh, don't want to have two totally separate discussions going, but I posted my current feelings about the app here: https://qudelix.discussion.community/post/app-suggestions-10574949?pid=1311851124 Hopeful that they can push updates out for at least some of these things soon.

    Extremely barebones first impressions: Hardware quality is nice; certainly a lot more professional feeling than the ES100. Sound is Good; can't really say anything more than that for now. (I feel like it sounds generally better, but I may be listening a bit louder... more on that shortly.)...

    No shipping info for me yet—I don't know if they're sequential, but can I ask what y'all's Order Numbers were? I think I wound up ordering about an hour after they went live, and had #1045.

    pretty funny that people with enough money to toss at this sight unseen/sound unmeasured are losing their shіt because they don't understand that language translation isn't 1:1 🥴

    there are a lot of sources with low enough impedance these days that that shouldn't be a problem, i think? i'm curious whether any Zeus owners have an ES100, E1DA, Hidizs S8, or even (I'm dead serious) the Apple dongle? Worth inquiring about, I'm sure...

    From EE's post about this on their site: :) edit: also, whoever recommended the new Strokes album? good choice, gd (though i'm listening to it on another really nice set first; i think it's gonna be particularly amazing on the LX)

    Really hard to be sure without taking measurements, unfortunately. If you hear it and your hearing is fine, though, it seems like that's the most likely explanation.

    i think it might just be because the ventholes are genuinely very small: that, in combination with the IEM just being in full contact with my ear canal (as compared to partial thinner contact as with a tip on a uni IEM), perhaps

    Isolation for me (LX, so they're vented as you say) is better than it is on my unvented universals, personally. I find that a little strange, but it is what it is. (edit: specifically, vs. my Fearless S8F)

    careful there—phantom sensitivity is 117db @ 1mW, not 127dB. also, these aren't linear scales... the difference is 21dB. rough rule of thumb is that every 10dB corresponds to a ~2x change in perceived volume, so by that metric the valkyrie is almost 4 times quieter (at 1mW) than the phantom...

    Impedance is only one part of the equation; more important here is the sensitivity, which is quite low on the Valks.

    extremely similar—and tuned with basically the same target in mind i guess—but i wouldn't say quite the same... i'm sure they're worth a demo if you're interested in either, though :)
