    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Though didn't I see something in a pic saying "Wind Defense" or some such and it was said the ANC and also transparency needed to be shut off so makes it seem pretty bad if they feel those modes become unusable. It is early though and seems three mentions of it. 3 mentions that it is an issue so...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Easy to hear we have the same driver or version of it. Haven't heard the Pro so I don't know what the real difference in sound is. Not exactly of course but to give the idea, you can take the Tape take away a bit of the resolution and high extension because of BT loss and add more low end and...

    The discovery thread!

    I did partake of the Sabbat E16 and can confirm from the sound they are indeed the Magnetostat and w/o the issues of the Tape as far as tuning or bad cable choice. Spiral Dot SF for the win it seems. They sound great and are good on volume which is nice on all devices and they sound driven well...

    Since the black(would have preferred the blue) had the 1-day shipping I took a flyer on the Sabbat flagship... The quick pics and I'll get the first quick impression/experience in before anyone else here :) The presentation is indeed nice and they include a decent amount of tips though small...
  7. KZ CCA Earphones

    I have a couple of KZ CCA earphones lightly used for sale. A pair of DQ6, gray no mic, with cable still in the bag and tips weren't used as I used AT tips in addition to my own cable. Have a UM3DT so DQ6 will really never be the triple dynamic I would pick up any more lol! The other is a black...

    That is what I was gonna ask about the conditions. That is LDAC vs. aptX on the PI7? Any way to compare on the same codec even if only SBC?

    Whats the difference? Sennheiser cx 100 vs cx 1.00

    Easy to see the difference. They moved the decimal point two places to the right and 1.0 becomes 100. :) Senn likes to recycle so there should be very little difference. Can you hear one. Probably not. Not enough to tell. Should be same driver and housing. Maybe a possible tweak in the foam or...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Don't have them so can't tell for sure what the sig really is or how the driver set-up presents. Interesting this pic... People talking about the high detail also makes me think this could be the Magnetostat like in the Shuoer Tape and the BGVP Zero. In that case I could say what it might sound...

    [FiiO FH5s] FiiO all-new 2 Dynamic Drivers 2 Balanced Armatures In-Ear Monitors (live streaming with photos and words)

    Or they just can't handle their treble. After the first two I called "treble wusses" and felt they should man up. Esp. that BGGAR guy with the sensitive ears.:imp: Yeah I coulda bought an FH5s. Not scared of treble. Just have too many two-pin cables and FiiO stays MMCX.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Well, there was the GF8 so the GF8S is not quite the first effort and the GF8 was a top SQ model. Not bad as far as battery. My AT wireless have an amp and they get 5 hours but sound pretty damn good. The PI7 using amping quite well but won't be battery champs. It will be interesting on...

    Always better :) Think the XM3 was dropped to $230 after a higher early price. First ADV M5 was as much as $249 and then $199 and now $149 with the new version. Klipsch T5 II versions go $50 or even $100 lower on the sport.

    More for battery life than battery longevity. Pretty sure that would be the right way to pursue if you are a manufacturer. More about the not having to put in the case and wait by just attaching fresh batteries instantly. Some, but less, want the device to last more than 5 years and swap...

    So, you really believe 10 Sonion per side for $190?? I don't know if I buy that. :) Esp. not even going to check them out and going just by the post.

    Got these in today and think I got a pretty pair... Yep pretend that cloudy "S" shape squiggle is not there as it is just a reflection. 3DT is well regarded and said to have more potential. I always like a good 3 way so had to try especially since I still have the solid ISN GC4 which is a...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    So, I got my pair of CCA CC1 TWS today. I think they are fine for the $21 I paid for them. Case is a decent size but pretty bland and a little plasticky. Don't like the USB C on the bottom or the LED being inside so it has to be open to see the battery gauge which is red/greed one light and not...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Still not sure if I like one style better than the other. I like both. I like it when they include a leash to convert into neck wearing but they don't make it work with the case so you have to remove the leash to fit them in the case again. If they have good battery life you can do both ways and...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Cause many like to just wear it like that and put it in. A case and taking in and out is not as fast and easy esp in summer with few or no pockets. Also that design is still better for reception than quite a few TWS models around. I have had several of both types and only two were zero dropouts...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I am not too into knowing every model KZ and what drivers it has inside. Is there a wired model with the same SKS drivers. Bet it might sound a little worse with a cable. You know what I mean it is more a happy accident than they actually tuned it right for the TWS. You are on to something. Even...
