    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Really lucky to get a like new pair from Amazon for $85 back in April from a third party seller. Not sure why so cheap, because the pre-owned X2HRs are $133. But they are in perfect condition, sound great paired with the ES10 cabled to the LG V30 (via an $8 USB-C).

    Just almost ordered the new Bose Quietcomfort Earbuds, which my Paypal account lets me pay off over 9 months without interest. I backed out at the last minute. No reviews at all yet. Am I nuts? Haha. Still am fine with the Melomania, Blon 03 (using the ES100) and the L2P Pro. Enough already! Of...

    LG V30

    At this stage, the V30 battery is holding a very good charge using it either with headphones (both cable via Fidelio X2HR and BT with Sony M3) or connected to my home stereo or TV soundbar. I'd say with 6-7 hours use, it doesn't get too low, maybe to 20%. I charge it every night. So don't have...

    I've tried several TW buds, and still like the M1s best. I am in a minority, but doesn't matter to me. I use the OEM foam tips, which I think are they best sound. Ended up getting a bunch from CA by having a friend in the UK order a pack. They also make a larger foam, and I have a few of those...

    Well, I don’t care much about the FW update because I am happy with SQ. As for the foam tips, the originals are small but fit me perfectly. They added a somewhat larger pair, which they are probably sending you. I have those too. Comply or other foams won’t fit the charging case well, so a pain...

    I am a major M1 fan and have never updated the FW. No EQ, well I do bump the treble a wee bit using my Kaiser Audio app/player (highly recommended). To me, with the foam tips, they sound great. No weaknesses. I tried to update the FW using my Amazon Fire, no go. CA should be ashamed, no direct...

    I will give it a try, see what happens. I switched so long ago, right after I got the L2Ps, worth a listen. My aging ears are not as needy as some, haha. Both the L2P and M1s sound so nice, I hesitate to try another else until some new tech hits, maybe the Google Pixel Buds II, who knows?

    Might have to try those tips. I do use an EQ, in the Kaiser Audio player, with my phones, well the ones I feel need it. So I do adjust the L2P sound, trim the bass, boost the mids, etc. While the L2P are not perfect, I ended up keeping them. I also ordered the new Tranya B530 Pro, already own a...

    Never got close to using them for 9 hours, 2-3 max, so can't comment on that. They did get back to me fairly quickly via email and ended up making good on my issue, which was connectivity. I can see how fit would be an issue for some; the OEM foam tips just worked. I didn't care for the silicone...

    I guess I got lucky here, since I took the wings off the L2P (they annoyed me) and use the Comply Audio Pro foam tips and they stay put, never fall out, no need to ram anything in my ear. Also, with the Comply tips, they isolate decently. Not ANC but as good as most passive in-ear phones I've...

    Me too, but very infrequent. I really like the sound, sturdiness of the design. And I favor the click button vs the touch pad functionality. Not the only pair I own (have the L2P and an old pair of Tranya T1s too), but between the two, all good. Waiting for 2020 to see what new stuff comes along...

    Niclolas is the name of the only CA support person in the USA who has responded to some of my emails. I think it's not CA, but a licensed seller for CA in the US. I had an issue with connectivity with my first set, I had to return and rebuy. Since then, no issues. Also, I love the foam tips, so...

    I have them. How do you know they are at a certain percentage? There is no app with them, right? Not sure how to tell where they are battery-wise. Of course, I hardly ever go past 2-3 hours max, and once on a flight. I love the sound, more than most here it seems. And with the medium foam tips...

    I had a pair of the Model X when they were on Indiegogo. Not impressed, shrill sound to me, just not a pleasant signature. I was surprised, because Advanced is a reputable outfit. I returned them and Advanced refunded the money. Mind you, I did not have the Model X Plus, maybe they upgraded the...

    Sorry to hear about your Melomania 1 experience. I’ve owned a pair for going on six months and I find that without the great fit I get with the foam tips that came with them, I could agree. But with the foam tips, they sound amazing to my ears. I owned the Sonys, returned them. Could not get...

    So long ago, can't say I remember it. But so far with the 75t, don't notice any imbalance.

    Yes the M1 TW phones have large sound tubes but some people’s ears (mine) are fine with them. I use the stock foam tips, no problem. As for sound to my ears they compare favorably to the L2P, albeit with some minor EQ tweaks. Consensus is a word that has no meaning on the TW thread. Or any...

    I prefer Comply Audio Pro foam tips with the L2P, no wings. I don't use them to work out, just walk at the most. They stay put, sound great. Also, I use them on the go, so listen to the 13,000+ tracks on my IP8 so I can EQ them without the app. That works for me. At home, I use the Sony...

    I favor the Comply Smartcore Audio Pro foam tips with the L2P. I don't even use the wings, they bother me, and get a great, stable seal. Of course, you have to roll them up and let them expand, but I also think they improve the sound. Not cheap, $22 for 3 pair. But worth it to me.

    Having owned both and returned/sold the Sony and the Senns (but not the MW07+) I am in agreement with you re the L2P. I wasn't thrilled with most of the presets in the EQ either. Didn't find the "custom" EQ option great either, so I use the jazz setting for any streaming (Amazon HD is the only...

    I had mine in today for a walk through the city and I am not sure why people need NC. I took the subway and sure, not the Sony WH1000XM3, but but could hear the music fine. On the street? Perfectly fine re isolation. And yes, they look like shiny beetles, but after owning a bunch of TW phones...

    I had some around from past uses, and I do prefer foam to silicone in general for sound and isolation. Plus, I think they feel more secure with foam, esp when not using the wings. Comply tips are not cheap, agree. But just my preference.

    No reason why not. But It can only be used with onboard tracks, not streaming services.

    I skip the Soundcore app and use Kaiser Audio app in iOS with a 20-band EQ. Add a bit of treble because I also like just a little more high end. But it does depend on the track.
