    Which piece of equipment in your portable setup costed the most?

    Uhh, my UE-11s obviously, $1600-1700 with customs to Sweden. It is my belief that you should spend the most on the transducers, and so I did, and I don't regret it for one second!

    UE-11s have arrived - early impressions

    First UE11 Impressions

    Damn, now I can't make up my mind about what amp to choose! I was thinking the Hornet, because I really don't mind if the bass is overpresented, but now I'm thinking a more detailed amp. I mean, getting more detail than I have now would be beyond excellent! Hornet owners: What do you think...

    Test tones 12-120hz, see how deep your bass goes!

    UE10 or 11 With Zune 120 / Tomahawk?

    I think you will be very happy with the UE-11. The bass is slightly overwhelming at first, but it really doesn't interfere with the other frequencies, and when you get used to the bass you notice that these earphones are really something else. I think the bass is brilliant, I was even going...

    Quintuple Driver Customs?

    Interesting... I'm eager to hear a rewiew. I know I would never buy them, even if they would prove to be better or equal to UE-11 with another sound signature. The question here is: does more equal better?

    Single UE10 (UE11) or pair of complimentary IEMs (ER-4S + something else) ?

    Custom IEM versus Fullsize Headphones

    Custom IEM versus Fullsize Headphones

    I've said it before and I will say it again: yes there is IEM that can capture the fullness of a full-sized headphone and it is called UE-11. I've compared it even to GS-1000 and there is little difference in how "big" the sound is. For detail and music layering I'd say the UE-11 wins.

    getting proper fit and seal on custom IEMs

    IMO, that has to be an imperfect fit, since every time you pull the cord when wearing the cable around your ear the IEM will screw itself back and you loose the seal. I have the exact opposite fit problem; when I lie down, the left earpiece unscrews itself and I lose the seal. I have to pull...

    IEMs staying in my ears?

    IEMs are different, I suggest you give them a try. I know a lot of people that can't use earbuds at all, but universal IEMs work perfectly for them. And if you are still unsure, just go custom, like livewires or Freqs. What's your budget?

    Customs and Comfort

    Customs are the ultimate in fit and comfort, you just have to be ready to send them back and forth to the company to get the fit perfect. I can wear my UE-11s for three hours playing soccer (which is INTENSE). I wouldn't even think about doing physical activities with universals. And I...
