    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Got my Andros yesterday and my impression pretty much just mirrored yours. Both are top-tier and at the end it really boils down to preferences. At the price the Oriolus is going for, I think it's an absolute steal

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Same here. I just bought an used one and have been astounded at the amount of detail this thing output. Depending on the pairing, it can get a bit dry and clinical or just pure magic. I've never heard my JH13 sound this good.   UI is an absolute step up from the original AK100. Faster, more...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Yeah I have to admit that I got a bit more curious about it from your feedback. Saw a nice deal on an used one and thought I'd just give it a shot since aesthetically and ergonomically it was head and shoulder above the stock one. Glad I went with it. Thank you! :D

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    I've recently acquired a PW Audio No.5 cable (akin to the one that comes with the Japanese version of the Oriolus). IMHO and it could be my ears playing tricks on me, there is a distinct different between the PW Audio No.5 and the stock cable that comes with the Chinese version. The No.5 rounds...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Would you mind elaborating on how they fare against the others in your inventory?

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Really though, I don't think I'm the most qualified person to speak about the matter as I don't have extensive experience with different versions of the Oriolus (mine is the Chinese one, as stated above while the one you're going to buy is the Japanese one I presume). Personally, I think the...

    I think your safest bet would be musicaacoustics.

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Well it seems mine is the "inferior" Chinese version, but to be honest I don't really care since the thing sounds good enough for me already. While I do consider myself a cable believer, I'd rather not venture into uncharted territories and put my money into things that are better guaranteed to...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    No problemo. IMO, the Oriolus v2 is definitely superior to the TG! when it comes to technical prowess (as is my jh13). Truth be told, I sold my TG! and recouped a fair amount on it, so I was looking for some cheaper replacement to use in my office. I was fairly interested from all the rave...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

      Precisely. Or perhaps I should have phrased it "female vocals". My bad Please do note that any comparison between my Oriolus and TG334! was made based on my memory since I have sold my TG! a while ago (we all know that audio memory is probably not the most reliable thing in the world)...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Did you mean the TG!334? Better presence at the high frequencies,more spacious, harder but tighter and deeper bass but the vocals on the Oriolus cannot match the sheer emotion on the 334's, all IMHO. More versatile for sure, but if your music library is mainly made up of vocals, the 334s are...

    ^^ Hi ya. How did you find the Oriolus with the DP-X1?

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    Hey folks I'm back, this time with a slightly more extended audition. My impressions are still the same as before, albeit with the addition of the bass - holy crap this thing really output DD kind of bass - deep, punchy, powerful...you name it. It reached the lowest registers of frequencies in a...

    Oriolus Hybrid IEM

    I had a demo of the Oriolus yesterday at a local audio store, a really short one though where I managed to listen to a few songs on the Oriolus and compare it with my trusty custom JH13's. IMHO, there was not much of a reminiscence of the TG334! (which I regretfully sold a while ago due to...

    The FitEar CIEM Impressions Thread

    "Official" lineup if I'm not wrong again. There is a few universal models that were released at limited quantities such as the Fujiya Avic's 222 or the Melomane, not to mention the AKR08 and the now discontinued C435 customs

    FitEar TO GO! & Universal Series --- Suyama's custom IEM, made universal!

    I concur. Everything considered, it seems their business principle is one of a kind in the first place compared to other companies. They look like they place little, or even no emphasis into generating profits or expanding their business. They impose rules upon their customers unlike other...

    FitEar TO GO! & Universal Series --- Suyama's custom IEM, made universal!

    I concur. It took me a real while to hunt down a pair here in Vietnam, and the price wasn't exactly cheap either (though I suppose it was quite a bit cheaper if we're talking in term of what you'd have to fork out to secure a new pair outside Japan). I can definitely see the reasons for the high...

    New custom IEM company - Custom Art: discussion, review, and impressions thread

    I'm sure that Piotrus makes some really nice CIEMs with awesome bang for buck, but you need to realise that this childish behaviour of praising something to the high heaven through the means of bashing some other alternatives is not in any way helping the company in the question. How about...

    ACS T1 Live! Custom IEM Review: Silicone for the Big Stage

    Damn, the BF deal is so good I'd probably jump in for another pair if I hadn't got one already. Even against the mighty JH13FP's that I have acquired a while ago, they still manage to offer a more balanced signature while not falling too short of the technicalities. Not to mention the superbly...

    JH Audio JH-13 PRO impressions thread

    Thank you for the suggestion and sorry if you are offended in any possible ways regarding my cable talk. And yes I have looked extensively into the topics in the Sound Sience forum and all I've found is posts labelling sonic improvements from cables as BS talk if that's what your're trying to...

    Review: Sennheiser IE 800 earphones

    ^^ What really irks me though is that most of the flaws with the design choice should not have happened in the first place. I am honestly baffled about the decision to go with a fixed cable, something they have got so right with the IE8/80 (in fact the near-perfect cable design of the 80's is...

    JH Audio JH-13 PRO impressions thread

    To any JH13's owner who own a Silver Dragon V1 cable, do you think that it's worth upgrading from the stock cable to this one? I've recently acquired an SPC cable from Ted from HeadphoneLounge (incredible quote, btw) and IMO found out that while the cable seemed to expand the soundstage and...

    Just got my brand new ACS T1 customs. They sound wrong to me (incl. graphs)

    I'm no expert either, but from my own experience and average_joe's review, the T1 mids have a tendency of getting quite congested at high volume and "shouty" at times, especially with complex passages since they are labelled as "stage monitor", thus designed in a way that would give stage...

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    I usually did it with putting the earpieces in the holes first and wrapping the cables around the case as tightly as possible. Normally the end plug would end up getting plugged into the lower hole on the side of the case.

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    Fair enough. Let us agree to disagree, though I fully understand that for some folks, the Tenore's wow factor might just be the fact that it has no wow factor at all. My 2 cents have always been there, you know :)
