    HiFiMan Susvara

    I'm paying more attention to head-fi due to not getting out as much as I'd like these days, like everyone else I suppose.... Love reading this tooing and froing on the susvara and hi end amps etc. It's a microcosm of economics and supply and demand. I'd be stalking the abyss thread too except...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I'm in the UK (well Isle of Man - but same for customs/VAT purposes) and I got mine brand new and sealed from @xanlamin via this website at a great price for UK - but don't expect a warranty from Sony UK if the oem sony cable breaks/fails - despite xanlamins best efforts....

    Initially I had problems indexing my card that were down to corrupt music files accrued on the card in a haphazard way over many years in many different formats... Also, Poly doesn't like special characters in file names. I had to spend some time on card file housekeeping to ensure proper...

    OK - agreed - I must try them balanced ... and an admission ... i've never tried anything balanced so I'm being a philistine in this regard.

    No sour grapes .... my opinions are well documented on this site before I had the problem with the cable .... and not going to happen with the more powerful sources for me as iems are portable imo for a reason - otherwise I would buy some susvaras and pair them with my hifi amp... my...

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    Yeah. I went with my gut and bought the Nio. Best iem i've heard. I also bought the sony ier-z1r and the fearless s8pro based on crinacle's reviews - a great pair of iems but for my tastes no match for the Nio. So, you have to trust your own ears in the end..... this is why I'm not...
