    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    If it is, that cable noticeably impacts performance. Best to replace it ASAP.

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Add on top of that 11.11, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the cable debacle, and the delay begins to become more understandable. Less understandable: claiming a shorter timeline and not only not following through, but not communicating the delay.

    Lead acid car battery on the other hip for balance?

    The staging is extremely precise. It's one thing I really enjoyed about my S8 Pros.

    I only get noise when I put it in close proximity to a noisy object, for instance my high powered desktop computer.

    Wild! How close are they to the impressions? Mine were done by an audiologist and were, um, fairly uncomfortable, but came out SUPER accurate. Hey, fun! We're only an hour from each other :)

    Did you send them your impressions or a file? I sent impressions, they scanned and sent me the file, and the fit is almost too good...

    Best chifi Campfire andromeda imitation

    There are a couple of major factors here to consider. First, the Andro is an open chamber design, which is pretty unusual in ChiFi, so unusual I can't think of a single example. Same with the crossover network- to my knowledge the Andro doesn't use crossovers. All that said, you might get...

    Is anyone else having the wifi signal drop after 4-5 minutes of non-active use? When I turn the screen off and listen, my streaming stops after a song or so (often in the middle of a song, annoyingly), then comes back up once I turn the screen back on. This happens with: Tidal UAPP (streaming...

    Oh my. That cable is so bad... I can't wait until you hear it with the new cable. It's far, far better, even though it looks largely the same.

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    It's hard to say. I really like the Roland. It's very different, and not really like any other signature on the market, but it's also not the best tool for enjoying modern-style brick-walled recordings. Give it a good DSD or FLAC recorded with some dynamic range, though, and they shine. Thing...

    I'm not a fan of this. I'd like basic play/ pause/ skip functions to work with the device in sleep, same as I expect the volume to operate with the screen off.

    Best chifi Campfire andromeda imitation

    Do you want the same frequency response as the Andromeda, or just a very high quality IEM for less?

    Copper. The Gu.Craftsman 6N 8 core is especially good at this. If you go copper with EA, make sure you get an 8 core or the new 26AWG if you're looking to round out the treble. The 28AWG is great, but it's a bit notchy for that use.

    The power of asking :smile_cat: Just thought it might sound good, so I asked Lillian if Fearless might try. They did and it's great!

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    From what I gather, the crossover is the same as the S8F, which is already pretty intense. I'm less about the crossover and more about the filter- I bet a quick filter swap would dial this in pretty easy. My EQ adjustments are pretty simple. The added BAs remove the "hole" in the Roland's FR...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    New goodie day! These are intense! Fearless did a super cool thing. I asked about a fully custom IEM, and they put the DD from the Roland plus the 6x mid-treble BAs from the S8F in a custom with the 2 ESTs from the Roland along for the ride. The detail retrieval is absolutely next level...
