    Looking for an IEM cleaning tool

    Hi if anyone has a spare IEM cleaning tool I'd like to buy it. 1964 ears is the only place in the US I can find that now, and they're charging more for shipping than I'd like.  SInce a cleaning tool is small enough to be mailed with a postage stamp, I'm looking to see if anyone can ship it to...

    Venerable Earsonics SM3 in fair condition.

    I have a pair of the venerable Earsonics SM3. I just found these in a drawer when I was cleaning my apartment. I bought them a few years ago and enjoyed them a lot.    The IEM's are physically in fair condition, but full disclosure the wire connector on the right earpiece appears to have a...

    Recommendations for good portable rig for ES5

    Hi. I"m looking to build a good portable Rig for the Westone ES5. A dap with a low output impedance under 2 ohms, FLAC capability, and an amp if necessary.  Ironically the Clip+ seems to fit all of this, but the headphone out quality will need to be improved with Rbox. I was also wondering...

    Looking for earphones or IEMs, open-spacious, clear signature

    S:Flow 2/T51?, how much of a step-up from Sony NWZ-A729

    Hi,     I have a pair of Earsonics Sm3s, and I like to keep my rig relatively light with as few controls as possible so i don't want to carry an extra amp around. Currently my Sm3s are paired with a Sony A729 Walkman, but I find the noise floor to be high, and soundstage just a little...

    Sensorcom tip & fit issue w/SM3s

    My right ear canal is significantly smaller than my left one. As a result the sensorcom and stock tips i'm using with the SM3 aren't going in deep enough on the right ear. The left ear has a good seal, but the right ear has an "okay" seal. The foams included were too small, and i found the...

    How do you wear the SM3? Other threads locked

    Other threads are locked, so I can't reply there. I know the wires for each channel loop around the ear. After that do both wires and the y splitter rest at your front side, or do you wear this behind you? If someone has a picture wearing this, that would be super awesome, the French...

    Earsonics SM3 with NWZ 729 Series Walkman

    I've heard a lot of good stuff about the Earsonics SM3 in terms of soundstage, all around high & low, it just seems to be a great universal triple-ba.   My concerns are these: 1) I plan to use this with my Sony NWZ-A729 unamped, do you think this will make a difference. All files are in...

    Why amp most IEMs? Overkill?

    Pardon me if this is miscategorized, I felt it should be targeted towards the wider IEM audience here. Many IEMs are designed to be pretty darn sensitive, hence they can be driven easily by a portable. The noise isolation, and just the overall design of these things generally allows it to go...

    Why do so many DAPs lack memory expansion?

    This question has been asked before.. but what does through the minds of the people with business plans at companies selling DAPs w/o memory expansion? I can understand if there were some cases were the DAP was limited by design, but a microSD slot is so small. Granted a company may want to...

    Where can a shirt clips?

    So my X5s are insanely light, i don't want to wear them over the ear and as a result when the wire wobbles around when I'm moving, the IEMs get tugged down. A shirt clip would relieve the stress of the entire wire pulling down on the IEMs and help with microphonics too. Does anyone know...
