    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Wow, thanks for the quick reply! Looking forward to getting these.

    Jaybird Bluebuds X bluetooth IEM's

    I actually keep the left and right positioning, with the controls right behind my right ear. At first, the buttons were facing the wrong way (i.e. pointing inwards), but I just twisted thecable, and now it works a peach. I can easily reach back to adjust volume, skip track, etc. As for the...

    The Portable BASS kings..The Pioneer HDJ500 vs AKG 518 LE vs The first look at the new AT WS55 Solid Bass

    Quote: "Airy vocals" is exactly my impression as well. To be honest, I wasn't that blown away by the bass at first. I still prefer my 1964-Quads, but of course they're custom IEMs, and you get what you pay for.   But now that I've worn the WS55s for three weeks, slowly burning them in...

    Any advice on buying iPod Touch?

    OK, I caved and finally got an 4G iTouch, 64GB. I've heard rumours of the 5G, but figure I don't really need 3G wireless and a better camera. The unit arrived last night, but I haven't been able to check it out because of the typhoon and today being a verrrry busy day at work. (So I shouldn't be...

    Any advice on buying iPod Touch?

    I've just taken the wife's iPhone for a test drive, and am pleasantly impressed. No hiss with my 1964-Q customs at all (aside from hiss on the actual recording). I can understand why some people say it sounds dry, though the distinction for me wasn't a big one. On the other hand, the iPhone's...

    Any advice on buying iPod Touch?

    Thanks for all the replies, fellas. A lot to chew on. Thanks especially to those who suggested waiting for the 5g. Sounds like a plan...   It's also nice to see a fellow expat in Tokyo. Can I ask, where did you get your LOD? Akihabara? And how is the Fiio e11? I've got the e7, but it just...

    Any advice on buying iPod Touch?

      Hi, iTouch users. After my wife got an iPhone with her new job, I've been wanting one for myself, but the monthly contracts for a smartphone here are ridiculous, and that’s put me right off the iPhone. However, the idea of getting an iPod Touch for music and apps and keeping my mobile for...

    1964 Ears

    Hi, I'm afraid I only have the Quads, so can't answer your questions. However, maybe you can answer a question I have: I'm seriously thinking of getting an iPod Touch for portable, but don't want to skimp too much on SQ. At the moment I use a Rockboxed Clip+, since I love its playlist...

    1964 Ears

    Ye gods, that's more than eight times what I paid for my original shipment! Even your first customs charge was more than six times what I paid.    For the record, the refit package I got was marked returned goods and warranty repair.   Quote:

    1964 Ears

    I just got my quads back from their first refit. No charges through Japan customs, and I noticed the envelope was marked "Warranty repair." I don't know about The Netherlands, but that seems to be a good sign for further refits (which may be required in my case).   Quote:

    The quads make it a lot easier for me to tell 192K apart from 320K -- expanded soundstage, among other things.   Quote:

    1964 Ears

    I have a fit question/issue. I've noticed a difference in seal between when my jaw is closed (e.g., biting down lightly) and when my jaw is slightly slack so that my lower teeth are in front of my upper teeth. The quads have better isolation in the closed position, but feel tighter. In the slack...

    1964 Ears

    I'm certainly not an audiophile in the class of many here, so take all that follows with a huge grain of salt!   I thought the mids were very forward and broke up a bit when this range was crowded. Bass was good and the bass line well separated. Trebles didn't jump out at me, but how much...

    Yes, just over 4 weeks for me from the moment they received payment to the moment they shipped the quads.   Quote:

    1964 Ears

    That's odd, because there's a huge amount of hiss with the E7s. When I plugged it in, I was like, What The -- ?   On the other hand, it sounds amazing with the Clip+. A very warm sound, and more subdued details, but the Clip+ gives even more oomph to the bass.    Quote:

    Advice wanted on custom IEM fit issue

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think contacting 1964 is my next step, but first I want to give them some time to see if I do indeed acclimatise to them.

    1964 Ears

    After almost six weeks of waiting, my Quads were delivered -- but I wasn't home! With work commitments, I won't get them until Saturday morning. The customs duty is a mere 1,300 yen (about USD16) In the meantime, 1964 Ears has received my CK10s to put the custom tips onto. No word how they're...

    Who is offering $140 customs?

    1964 Ears

    Is it just me, or has 1964 taken down the non-sale price? The Quads are still $500 at the sale price, but the post-sale price appears to have been dropped from $600 to $525.

    1964 Ears

    I just got my impressions done at Fit Ear in Tokyo, and am looking at colours. I'm leaning towards a basic clear shell to be as discreet as possible, but am curious as to how solid-colored shells look in the ear.    I'd like to invite everyone to post shots of their customs -- not well-lit...
