    1964 Ears

    Upgraded my V6-stages to the V8.  After a couple of weeks with them, I offer my impressions.   First order of business: So. Much. More. Bass.  Especially mid bass, not a whole lot more sub bass.  Any track you have with a tight punchy kick drum will knock your socks off.  1964's comparison...

    1964 EARS V6 Thread

    1) it's probably not a good idea to write down the exact declared value on a public forum, so you might want to edit your post, and 2) this is definitely a matter you should call/write to 1964 about rather than ask us!  if anything they could draft an affidavit of how they arrived at...

    1964 EARS V6 Thread

    1964 ears archived my impressions from 2011 and asked me if I wanted to use those for my new CIEM a month ago, so I'm sure they kept yours too.  Thing is, they recommended that I get new impressions after two years for the best fit - so I went ahead and did just that.  My new set is decidedly...

    1964 Ears

    So, my set of V6-Stages came in. The new case is nice; my old case just had my name on a clear label.  This time they have my name engraved on the brushed metal effect nameplate that's affixed to the box, which is a much nicer touch.  The bores, unlike my Quads, are plastic tubed all the way to...

    1964 Ears

    thanks again for your help, no further questions tim!  you've done all potential customers of 1964 a great service with your comparisons, because impressions of the v6-stage are very rare.  1964 deserves to grow and be promoted seeing as their build quality and customer service is pretty much...

    i'm 95% sure not, because of the new center drive bass drivers and different crossovers.

    got v6-stages on the way, oct. 9 will be the 15th business day since they've received my impressions and payment!  we'll see how they compare to my quads when they come in mid-october.   speaking of which, do you guys speculate that Vitaliy may have acquired a set of freqphase jh13/16s before...

    Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 Loudspeakers Review

    well i can't compare the 6s to the rokit 10-3s, but i did a comparison between my airmotiv 4s vs my friend's rokit 6 g2s.   the airmotivs are definitely more transparent and the tweeter blows away the silk dome on the rokit 6s.   the rokits blow away the airmotivs in sheer bass quantity...

    Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 Loudspeakers Review

    i had a direct comparison at my house between my pair of airmotiv 4s and my friend's audioengine 5+s. the emotivas blew them away, especially in bass response, the audioengines just roll off the bass wayyy too soon and too steep compared to the airmotivs. strange, considering the audioengines...

    Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 Loudspeakers Review

    oh crap. looks like there is a very slight bit of noise at any level. maybe i shouldn't be using the stock rca cables that came with the audinst lol.   but for all my uses, it has a black background.  the hiss is barely perceptible until i put my ear to within a few inches of the speaker.

    Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 Loudspeakers Review

    with windows volume maxed out and the pot on my dac also maxed, i have the tiniest bit of audible hiss, but if i played music at that volume i would blow my ears out.  i'm using them with the pre out (rca outputs) on my audinst.  got them on mopads, they're real nice!

    [Impression] FiiO E10

    the e10 is more detailed than my j3 with BBE settings (BBE MP + regular BBE)... and the j3 already sounds significantly better than my ip4.  definitely a big step up with my earphones at least.  really depends on how well your earphones/headphones scale up.  friend couldn't hear a difference...

    The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread - Closed! Use the Deals Thread III instead.

    it's really not that big a deal, when i had coppers, i added a bit of superglue to put them back together when they came apart, they never came loose ever again.  it's not rocket science!

    [Impression] FiiO E10

    rawrster - i used it to play my digital music on my father's hi fi, sounds great.  very solid all round, sonically, imaging and separation was decent, and the detail level was excellent..       to the shipping guys, mp4nation has been good to me - took a week and a half to get to my...

    E10, new USB DAC ( updated with photos of real E10 )

      Quote:     like you stated, the e10 has a line out, not line in.   you'd have to use a product like the leckerton uh-6 or ibasso d12 for optical in - then you could take a toslink cable and hook up your ps2's optical out to the uh6/d12's optical in.

    E10, new USB DAC ( updated with photos of real E10 )

    Quote:   yup, but mp4nation was the first to start taking pre-orders, not to mention the fact that headphonebar would've been 28 dollars more expensive.  headphonebar also only got their first batch as I received mine, too.

    is there a night and day difference between the mini-i and the e10? how do they differ, would you be able to pick them apart easily, blindfolded?
