    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    Managed to snag a good condition pair recently. Really happy to finally own one. My last Hifiman headphone was a HE400 many years back. Such a shame they've stopped producing these.

    2XR definitely has more warmth than the 4S. I think that's the "safer" option to dip into the Ety sound.

    Etymotic ER4SR "Assembled in Vietnam"

    Personally I see no issue for as long as the quality that Etymotic is known for is maintained.

    Craft Ears Reviews/Impressions Thread

    If you mean IEMs my daily driver is the Hidition Viento but I do rotate with the rest in my profile. The CE6 is interesting because of their supposed "True Load" and "Rasen Bass". The former is something that is quite rare in the IEM world and the latter tells me CraftEars is pushing for...

    Totally agree. Perhaps one way to "minimize" the damage is to try and get the ER2XR. It will let you try out the fit and the ety sound on a budget.

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

    Which filter are you referring to? I find that stock (a la FD01) is difficult to listen to, but the blue filter seems to hit the spot.

    For portable my go-to is the DP-S1 / DX160. But I normally use my etys at home (ER4S / ER4B) with the ifi Micro Black Label, which has been working wonderfully for me.

    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    That is exactly how I would have described it as well... I was shocked when I first heard it. I didn't know music can sound that way. The shape didn't help too and I was constantly worried it would slice my ear.

    Review of NXears new single driver Sonata, quad driver Basso, and eight driver Opera universal fit IEM

    Refreshing to see more realistic prices across the whole range. Hoping we get to demo them at our side of the world.

    None of those are available for demo yet in Singapore as far as I know. Perhaps the Percivali only?

    I am fairly sure the review also mentioned the ER3SR

    According to the shop where I demoed, they burned in the units for 3 days straight prior to launch.

    2017 Audio Technica new flagship ATH-ADX5000

    Yes I do believe a very good amp can make them shine even more so. I have heard them out of a Caiyin HA300 briefly and was definitely floored by the sound! Are there good pairings around the $1000 range?

    NocturnaL Audio Custom IEM Discussion and Impressions

    My personal favourite among the lineup is the Atlantis. The Eden was too coloured for me.

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    i don't believe it's fair to compare - they are suited for very different use cases.

    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    Once the demo is out in the store I am hoping to A/B them better because to be quite frank the show floor was noisy and not-ideal for picking out the technicalities of the sound.

    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    I had the same issue with the universal demos for NT6/8 and Viento. Violet was much more comfortable, seems like a revised shape. Still not perfect like QDC or InEar stuff but better than their old shape.

    Congrats! 3 days turnaround is unheard of. How much did it cost?

    Hope to see some comparisons between the Moondrop A8 and the VX!

    I'll throw my vote for Hidition NT6 as well, though it may be hard to purchase if you don't speak korean / have a local dealer.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a 4.4mm balanced cable for the ER3SE/ER4SR ?

    I would take Andromeda S over the normal Andromeda for vocals.
