    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    I'm not 100% sure how you mean it with grounding, but I think that nobody is using grounded pin on 4.4mm connector for headphoens. Similarly 2.5mm connector also has no grounding pin. For example here is pinout on 4.4mm adapter from Cayin Adapters from MEE Audio

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    I like these connectors, but isn't it annoying to have L-shaped connector, that is longer than most DAPs on market?

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    More likely that on this demo the connectors got stretched by people inserting cables that shouldn't fit. It might fit fine for now, but if you try to go back to proper UE connector, it will likely be too loose, will fall out and can have loose contact.

    Sweet tiny rig. I always was tempted by the Rockets, almost bought them few years back in Japan. Maybe I should have a look at used market again.

    Jomo Audio Impressions & Discussion Thread

    My solution for long bores on Samba - one size smaller tips, pushed all the way up to nozzle. This way I get really deep fit, that is much closer to fit of custom version. And they don't look like frankenstein's plugs anymore.

    The Deals DISCUSSION Thread (READ THE FIRST POST!!!)

    KZ cables would not fit into Audeze iSine, or any other standard 2 pin IEMs. They have pins of smaller diameter and also they use special recessed construction.

    Over multiple auditions, I still believe that Gemini is just combination of Hifi and Live model.

    2,5 mm DC connector : what IEM brands use this ?

    So either be done with this or make your own. That's unfortunately outcome of choosing so obscure connector on IEMs.

    Empire Ears - Discussion & Impressions (Formerly EarWerkz)

    Went to HK this afternoon and look what was waiting for me at DMA. Gave a quick listen to all of them, stock Effect Audio cable and Mandarine tips. All hybrid models had quite noticeable driver flex, but I'm person that hears it quite often, especially on all dual hybrids I tried. BA...

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    Firstly, KSE1500 are out for few years old, many people owned them or auditioned them, so finding impressions and reviews isn't hard. I don't own Shure KSE1500, neither most of the IEMs on my top 10 list(own only 3 of them). As I mentioned in that post, I gathered these auditions on different...

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    Don't really want to rate them, since they have different strengths and weaknesses, as different sound signatures. Shure would be lower, they do some things great, but missing in other areas.

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Just too bad that EA Ares II, with much lighter 4 wire construction, beats this 8 wire easily in sound.

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    That my 8 wire Null Audio Vitesse copper is so heavy, that it starts to hurt my ears if I use it without it lying on table.... Pretty answers the comfort x sound question to me.

    Anybody can tell me, where in HK is this authorized dealer? Last time I tried to find them, I ended up with some tiny headphone store hidden in dying small shopping mall, with no EE around.

    What you described would fit for brands focusing on audiophiles, but often the pro musician market is where these strange uninteresting IEMs go. :)

    TRINITY - PHANTOM Series - New thread + WORLDS FIRST PUSH PULL HYBRID IEM!*

    Since Icarus doesn't have 4 pin 3.5 mm jack in balanced settings, these adapter will either not work or even damage your device. You can never connect Single ended terminated headphones into balanced output, no matter if you get fitting adapter. You need to reterminate cable or change cable.
