    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    That, and the fact that EE themselves stated that none of the new EE series units were ever tuned with ADEL modules in mind, and this is something I sincerely hope more people will know since some consumers just seem to want to implement everything when it becomes a bit of a trend with the whole...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I can't exactly say that's true given how I didn't pay too much attention to every individuals' feedback, but I did have heard plenty have moved back to the non-ADEL route after doing an A-B comparison between the two. And as for me, the whole point of having a custom IEM is perfect or near...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    for all I know, there could be some disagreements happening between Asius and EE or it could also simply be a majority of consumers prefer a much fuller sounding IEM since modules cause sound leaks and reduced isolation.

    It's gonna be a long-arse wait given how I have no chance to visit Singapore's CanJam. (This is my 2nd year in a row missing out on it)

    No. Music Sanctuary ended partnership with Effect Audio, remember? I think it's going to be one of PWAudio's cables. Four cables come in my mind. Co-flagship 1950s Loki Xerxes Saladin

    Well, I am not good at being teased since some of you know how tirelessly curious I am on things that have "as if it's from heaven above" type of excitement surrounding it. :D :D :D

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Ah, sounds promising then. I'll have to keep myself posted then since I can't attend to the CanJam SG. Which make was the cable that you tried the prototype on? Effect Audio? PWAudio? Han Sound?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Most appreciated and glad you liked it. But yeah, 3.5mm is meh, but 4.4mm is beautiful sounding.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Pretty much this. Diminishing Returns - The two words that many probably can't understand until they felt the inevitable weight of it eventually when it catches up to their wallets. :D

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    So...I spent some time with the WM1Z demo on my local audio shop. Here's my impression write up on it. It's not a review though, just an impression. So take it with a grain of salt. :) http://arthurchor.blogspot.my/2018/03/quick-impression-sony-nw-wm1z.html

    Much appreciated for the feedback. Sounds like a killer to me -- the Phantom. But I will have to listen to it myself first before I judge. As always.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Hmm...interesting. Can't say I ever got a chance to audition Tia Fourte or Encore before so I can't judge. But I will definitely like to do an A/B someday. I've been hearing different stories left and right in between Legend X vs 64 TOTL IEMs.

    Geezuz, speaking of knock-off brands, it's getting more and more frequent, doesn't it?

    ah, okay then. Thanks for letting me know. It's just that I wanna know what's @flinkenick ideal graph since he kind of mentioned it during the Phantom talk. Lol.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Has anyone a graph measurement of Phantom? I just want to see its graph, regardless of how accurate it may or may not be. For reference purpose. Thanks.

    Kuala Lumpur International AV Show (KLIAV) 2017 Impressions Thread

    It will be on Stars Picker Audio soon. So, enjoy yourself with it :D Also, I must say Minerva-R's scaling can be a bit insane since from a phone alone it already sounded amazingly detailed. It you pair it with a good source, it will definitely reveal itself even more. My flimsy Fiio X1+E12A...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Well, as tempting as it may be, I very likely won't buy the palladium cable if it's over $500. Price has always been the only factor holding me back from any cable upgrades. But considering Ares II is already a very good cable, I probably won't feel such a need to upgrade if I ever managed to...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Well, I do like some warmth in a sound to be quite honest, so maybe I'll have to do the pairing myself and decide if I like that sound or not lol. That, and perhaps I find the 4-wire a bit too pricey to even consider. XD The Phantom just seem like such an ideal IEM to my ears of preference...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    if Phantom has a realistic staging, I think the best type of cable pairing on it, besides the Ares II, will be something that do somewhat give a bigger stage boost for that immense sound. But I sure have no idea which cable can do this, the PWAudio 1960s 2-wire came to mind but I dunno if...
