    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

      A great read, @MikePortnoy! And a very interesting comparison to the SE5R - an IEM I find mysterious and intriguing.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

      Sure, I can understand that. There has been much talk about the stars on Head-Fi reviews and how they tend to misrepresent the written details. Personally, I like lurking on this site a lot because you can get details and impressions on a lot of audio gear all in one spot    I like to delve...

      What a well written and insightful review! I enjoyed the comparisons as well.   Will you be posting this on Head-Fi?

      Also a good point.

      I have to agree. Considering the price points we're talking about here, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a commensurate level of robustness in the build quality.

    Staggered or simultaneous release is fine with me.   But I am curious if there is a planned tour that will allow me to try the new line ...?

    DUNU DN-2000J -- More Than Evolution?

      I am sorry to say, @squyzz, I myself have attempted to find a similar sounding IEM to the DN-2000J, but have not had any success. They are pretty unique in the way they delivery sound.   The good news is that they do include options to improve fit, like the fins for example.   Personally...

    My apologies, everyone. I realize now these messages are more appropriate in the other thread ...

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

      I observe the level of hum to increase to a distracting level within 30-45 minutes of use, same as @Dave74

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

      Yes, it has been mentioned in the past. But I don't believe anyone had mentioned at the time that what begins as a low hum increases in intensity with time. Since more LC owners are now coming back with the same findings, I'd like to find out if this is still considered normal.

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

      I have to say I am also getting a low hum on my LC. This is with no source connected and with sensitive IEMs connected to the SE output as well. The hum is not affected by the volume control. It does increase in level after some minutes, though. If I do have a source connected, the low hum...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

      A point well made, @Cotnijoe   For what it's worth, that is not the way I interpreted what he said.   One company immediately came to my mind when I read what you said about some companies not having the resources to reach us here in North America.   It brings me back to why I feel that...

      Can someone who has access to both the Zeus and the Vorzüge Pure II confirm?

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I agree with @moedawg140 and @nmatheis   Ideally, we should be able to audition each piece of gear before we decide to purchase. This would spare us from having to rely on second hand information for something whose value ultimately depends on personal preference.   Having said that, my...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    In an effort to provide information regarding Android phones, I tried the Zeus directly connected to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and I get a black background. I hear no hiss.   It's an old phone, but I still feel it calls for another crazy cat dance, even if just a small one

      Oh, man. Can't wait to try the Solar on my MOJO!   Oh, wait ...

      I wish my Solar would arrive, too.   So I can confirm what people are saying and help break the secret!
