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

    Don't take offense, as I've done this myself, but, you know you have the illness when you find yourself buying backups of things you already have.

    Penon Audio Thread. Post your impressions here.

    Exactly. Adding to its appeal is its small profile which allows me to wear them to go to sleep. These are my go to Penon. I actually prefer these to all the other Penon offerings I have tried including Fan, Globe, and Volt. In fact, I sold my Volt. It was OK, but not $800 OK. YMMV

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN H50!

    H50 in the house. These clearly have the same DNA as the H40. I could tell out of the box these are winners. I'm so happy to finally receive something that has not been - ahem- overhyped.

    I prefer the IE900. I couldn't stand the Dorado 2020 and had to return it. I seem to be an outlier in my disdain for it, though. But now, dammit, I'm intrigued by Duo.

    Yeah ... except last time I used Express Shipping Penon did NOT use DHL and it took many weeks to USA.

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Is the S1 firmware version for Tidal compatability 1.0.0.9? That's what I have on my S1. I have the latest Tidal on my Galaxy S10+. Tidal recognizes the S1 and asks to allow access. No matter what I play (MQA or standard hifi) the sound is very distorted and actually sounds slower than the...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I recently read somewhere (can't recall where) an explanation of sound bone conduction for the novice. It went along the lines of why listening to your own recorded voice (which is the same as others hear you) never sounds the same as your own voice sounds to you. A significant fraction of the...

    Fourte in the house. My initial impression (before cable / tip rolling) is that this fits in nicely between the fun trio and the uber-retrieval monster (EE) Odin. No disappointment so far!

    There will almost definitely be a new flagship announced as I've just bit the bullet on a Fourte and it should be arriving shortly. Edit : Yes, my actions are THAT powerful.

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

    You're right. My bad. I just stayed in developer settings and selected ldac. I forgot to enable it back in the bluetooth settings. All good. Thanks!

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

    Liberty 3 Pro was just delivered. Looks like very nice packaging, tips, and wings. I'm letting it charge right now. I did note that the case is a bit slick. I'm thinking of trying to transfer the cellophane "Open" tab that came on the case of the LP 2 Pro to this case. If it doesn't work I...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I know someone already responded to this, but this thread is on fire! Anyway, responding to your comment; that's what I thought at first. But try an online sine wave generator and sweep through the frequencies and see what you think then. You might be surprised. Like this one, for example ...

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN H50!

    In my opinion the LX is definitely more fun. The EST50 is more of an all-arounder. The LX is a specialty IEM for bass.

    Out of everything in my collection, the Trio is still my favorite. I can't even listen to it at night when I go to bed (though it's physical profile is perfect for that) because I end up listening to it rather than falling asleep.

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    Thanks for the tips discussion. I just gave the Acoustune AET07 a run through. They are now 2nd place for me. Best sounding/fitting for me are the Azla SednaEarfitLight.

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    Not quite sure what you mean "on the outer position". You mean very shallow insertion depth?

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

    Got MT in. Can't really get a good seal with the included large tips, though if I hold them in place, I can see the sound is pretty good. I found a few tips I had around that gave me good sound, but nothing I can get to sit in the case on the contacts. So that's my challenge going forward...

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    So I got these in last night and started listening this morning. Well, the factory tips are not an option because Large is too small for me to get a good seal. I am having success with various large Sednas and Epro, so I'll have a tip-rolling challange in front of me. I think they sound good...

    I've got the MT - black coming in tomorrow, now that they're back in stock in US. Ordered direct from CA/US rather than Amazon, though, to save the tax.

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN H50!

    Yes. I just recently started really enjoying the EST50 now that they're burned in and paired the with the XELASTEC tips. I found the EST50 superior (in terms of sound and FIT) for going to sleep with. But the answer to your main question is that the EST50 can't come near the LX in terms of...

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    I have them both. I actually just now started enjoying the EST50 after final burn in and finding the right tips. But the answer to your question is easy: LX is the best.

    Could you elaborate about what you prefer about the M1+ ? Thanks
