    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Thanks. Not sure if the cable is the same as LX. Don’t think it’s going to be a problem though.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    The eagle has landed. The only other IEMs I've had that compare price wise to these was AKG N5005s. I can already tell I'm going to like these better.

    Well, took the plunge and got the Bravado MK2s. They should arrive sometime today. You only live once right?

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    What do you guys think about Bravado MKII vs Vantage for all around listening experience? Both should be basshead approved. FWIW, Crinacle ranks the Vantage higher and calls it a mini LX which is appealing. Thanks.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Thank you! I recently found a new appreciation for my JVC HA-FX850s that had been boxed up in my basement for who knows how long. This prompted a trade for JVC HA-FW01s which are also great IMO. Now I'm looking for a significant upgrade to both. I like both the aforementioned IEMs so much...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Hello. Basshead here. From the reviews and comments, I think the Bravado MK2 would be right up my ally. However, the price is not. Is there anything out there with similar performance under $400 (or maybe stretch to $500)?

    JVC HA-FW01 - The New Top End Wood Driver IEM (2017)

    This is from Drop.com: From the anniversary HA-FW10000 IEM, the HA-FW1800 features JVC’s ultra-thin 50-micrometer birchwood dome carbon diaphragms to deliver expansive, natural-sounding audio. From the popular FW-01 IEM, the HA-FW1800 favors a streamlined design and high-performing hardware...

    JVC HA-FW01 - The New Top End Wood Driver IEM (2017)

    I've been on a JVC kick lately. Pulled out my FX850s and discovered they were my favorite IEMs using Sedna Xlastic tips. This inspired me to get HA-FW01s which I love even more. Now thinking about HA-FW1800s. Can't find many comparisons of them vs the FW01s. Can anyone here compare the two...

  10. FS: Mooondrop Starfield IEMs in Excellent Condition (USA)

    Moondrop Starfield IEMs for sale in excellent condition. Comes with everything pictured (no box). Got these from another Head-Fier to demo. They sound great, I just don't need them (have other fish to fry). Note that 6 grills/filters with tweezers are included. Haven't used them and don't...

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    Don't think this should get an "S" rating due to the excessive grease quantity from the frying process. This can lead to in-coherency, excessive peaks and muddiness in the lower digestive regions. On the other hand, the fairly recent Chick-Fil-A spicy grilled chicken sandwich provides the...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    Thinking about an upgrade for my JVC HA-FX850s. Something that didn't stick out so much would also be a plus. A bit of a basshead so a tight, bass slam is required. Would the FDX1s or FW01s work maybe?

    In general, how does the EDP compare to some of the latest Chi-Fi offerings from Moondrop, LZ, Mangird, etc.?

    More Lockdowns

    I'm not planning to get the vaccine. Australia had to abandon one of theirs due to HIV positive results (https://news.yahoo.com/covid-australian-vaccine-abandoned-over-022048650.html). Don't want to get it and find out the one in the USA is the same LOL. Edit: I'm totally against lock downs...
