    Trinity Audio Phantom Master 4 (Gunmetal) [SOLD]

    Selling a Phantom Master 4, which was pre-ordered by me, that has been used mostly indoors. One of the silver undampened filters has a finicky fit with the main IEM, so I would screw it in carefully but otherwise it works fine.   I only used the L pair of tips, and have rinsed them with water...

    Fostex TH-X00 Mahogany (Sold)

    Hello, I am selling the Fostex TH-X00, which I had received from another Head-fier. The headphone is in very good condition, although the cables above the y-splitter have some minor twisting. I am currently downsizing my desktop headphone collection as I usually use portable solutions.   Price...

    AKG K7XX First Edition Headphones (Sold)

    Hello, I am selling the AKG K7XX First Edition headphones which I purchased from Massdrop during February 2015. I have not been using them quite as much as I did the first six months, so the headphones are in excellent cosmetic condition, besides some dust on the pads which can be brushed off. I...

    Schiit Modi 2 (Sold)

    Hello, today I am selling Modi 2 from Schiit. I purchased this during January, 2015, and have been using it almost daily until this month. I upgraded to the Modi 2 Uber mainly for the convenience of the on/off switch from the used market.   The Modi 2 has been used in a non-smoking home with...

    Today I am selling the first generation X5 from Fiio. This item was bought from another Head-fi member. I'm selling this for the purpose of upgrading to another DAP.   *** I had charged the X5 sometime in the past with a Samsung fast charger, which breaks the USB storage/DAC mode. This means...

    Earwerkz Supra Universal Version (Sold)

    Hello, I am selling the universal edition of the Earwerkz Supra. The main reason for selling this is because I simply prefer the sound signature of some of my other IEMs (looking for a less neutral sound signature). Earwerkz is Empire Ears now, and you can find the Empire Ears...

    Review by 'SyntheticShotz' on item 'Trinity - Delta Dual Hybrid IEM'

        Since this would be the second review that I have put a decent amount of effort in, with the Fidue A83 review being the first, I would appreciate any feedback as well as any tips or suggestions so that I can improve the quality for future reviews.           Earlier this year (2015), the...

    FIDUE A83 impressions and discussion thread

    I also would like to note that the locking mechanism in the A83's stock cable makes it harder to get the desired angle, my Shure cables with the memory wire work pretty well since it lets the A83 swivel to the right angle.

    FIDUE A83 impressions and discussion thread

    It really depends on whoever is listening to the A83. I find the bass and treble elevated, but the midrange only having a small v-shape. Compared to the Earwerkz Supra 2 (close to neutral sound signature), the A83's mids are a little less full and more laid back in comparison. I personally find...

    Review by 'SyntheticShotz' on item 'Fidue A83 Reference Class Triple Hybrid IEM'

            I am open to any suggestions or feedback about my writing or the way I present this review, and will try to improve based on any feedback you have.           It was early December, 2014, when I lost my IEM due to a washing machine. Later that month, I believed I could fare traveling...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    I kept my X1 with the carbon fiber sticker inside the rubber case for my first week of use, so I didn't have any problems with the skin peeling off. The only solution I have is to use a hair dryer and blow hot air on the areas that are peeling, although it's less effective if you don't try it...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    Are you talking about the decorative stickers for the body of the X1? My carbon fiber stickers lasted for a few months, then I ripped them off in panic after the player went through a washing machine (the stickers were intact). Not sure if they would wear off because I never gave it a chance to...

    EarWerkz "Supra" The Universal Custom In-Ear Monitor

    Yes, it was mainly the impressions process that made me think about a longer wait (and how some CIEM companies have really long wait times compared to Earwerkz).

    EarWerkz "Supra" The Universal Custom In-Ear Monitor

    Thank you both, @sleepingforest and @moedawg140. I'll try to ask Jack about the rush topup so I don't have an IEM sitting inside my house for two months. :P   P.S. The order is a universal and I was well aware that customs took longer.

    FIDUE A83 impressions and discussion thread

    Wiggling the cable helps me eliminate the problem. The causes of the sound cut-outs have varied over this week, from moving my head a specific angle to cutting out whenever I smile while putting it on (although that's with different eartips that easily cause driver flex as well). I just switched...

    FIDUE A83 impressions and discussion thread

    Has anyone cleaned the mmcx connectors of the A83 when they experienced any sound cutting out?   Sometime this month, my right earpiece started cutting out at random intervals, and it would go away after a slight movement from my head. I used some rubbing alcohol to clean out the male and...

    Does anyone have a comparison between the A83 and the Aurasonics ASG-1 Plus?

    FIDUE A83 impressions and discussion thread

    If the WT2 is a Westone cable, then there's this article explaining why they don't work with Shure connectors. I believe the article mentioned that the Westone male connectors are a little shorter compared to the male Shures. The A83 seems to use a female adapter like the Shure version since my...
