    I am interested in Fearless S8 Freedom or S8 Pro in excellent condition with the original packaging. Shipping from the U.S. or Canada preferred. Thank you.

    US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    I still haven't had chance to post my impressions with the Fearless sets. With the limited time I had I just skipped the entry-level models and went straight for: S8F, S8P, S10 Genie, ACME8, S6 RUI (for a very short period of time) and I spent most of the time between S8F and S8P. The TL,DR...

    Stax SR-L300 Impressions Thread

    The stock L300 pads are kind of thin to begin with. Also want to point out that using the thicker pads on the L300 will add pressure and stress on the headband.

    US Head-Fi Tour: Fearless Audio CIEM Tour - Starting May 2019

    I didn’t know the tips were in there till the last day. The shipping box was very beat up so I decided to use a new box for shipping. When I was trying to empty the old box that’s when I found the bag of tips at the bottom of the box. Didn’t bother to open it. Just packed it along with the rest...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    I just had the opportunity demoing the Freedom and Pro for a few days. Comparing them side-by-side I feel the Pro's have slightly more sparkles on the high end and they do sound slightly 'cleaner' than the Freedom's. Although one of my colleagues who also auditioned the same set of IEMs had the...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    I never consider S8F being warm. Are you saying that S8Z is towards analytical? How about the soundstage? Thanks.

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Well, I did compare the S8F and S8P with a pair JH13v2 (re-shelled) and my impression is that S8F/S8P have slightly better (wider) soundstage and dynamic than JH. JH is smoother and probably a little more refined. The JH will most likely be less fatiguing. However, please take my comment with a...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    I wonder if either you may have a pair of defective S8F or it might be the 4.4 mm cable. I have had the chance to demo several Fearless models (S8F, S8P, S10, ACME8) with my DX160 and didn't hear any hissing. I do agree though that the soundstage and dynamic are the best with both S8F and S8P...

    FS - ATH-A900 Excellent Condition

    Yes, they are available. Are you in Amsterdam? If you are willing to cover the shipping costs then I would consider shipping to EU. Although you need to know the shipping could more than expected.

    I also heard the bass on the left side of ACME8 is a little weaker than the right side. I would only notice this when there is a lot of low bass in the music. Normally I don't listen to bass heavy music so I could barely notice there was a channel imbalance. I don't think it's the cable (swapped...

    TRINITY - PHANTOM/SAGARIS SERIES - Newer Thread (JUST IMPRESSIONS ETC - DO NOT POST ABOUT ORDER STATUS - COMPLAINING - ETC.)

    I actually confused the massive bass and soundstage parts with the Icarus III. It has been so long and I no longer owned PM4 and Icarus III. I edited my previous post. I listen to a lot of piano and instrumental music so PM4's sound was just not for me. The Trinity customer service was quite...

    TRINITY - PHANTOM/SAGARIS SERIES - Newer Thread (JUST IMPRESSIONS ETC - DO NOT POST ABOUT ORDER STATUS - COMPLAINING - ETC.)

    Here are my personal opinion. I used to own the Trinity PM4s. I was pretty impressed initially. They could have massive bass depending on what tips were used. But after listening to them for a little while I felt something was wrong. Then it just dawned on me that the PM4s had a flat soundstage...

    I have just picked up the tour package from the postal office, sent by @durwood. Took a couple of pictures for these 10 pairs of gems. I did a quick listening to S8F and S8P and found I prefer S8P personally. Will try to listen to as many of them as I could in the next week. Big thanks to...
