    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    yeah that's my experience too. i just like the convenience of being able to change the track without digging out my phone. i listen a lot at the gym, on my bike, etc.

    Sony XBA-A3 - Impressions Thread

    Westone UM56 drilled for A3. Fit is much better but the sound is veiled. Will try to bore it out more on the ear side.

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    If it was a true bootloop then the fix is only temporary.

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    If it was me, I'd still ask LG to repair it for free. It is a known issue, a defect, and they should repair it out of warranty. Additionally, your credit card may have some extra protection.

    Yep. It goes away though and is not permanent.

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

      I would agree with you on logic, but you have to try it and see. With V4A, you don't get that pause/silence switching hifi-DAC on and off. I used V4A for the first month or 2 I had the phone, and it was a revelation once I disabled it and just used PowerAmp. I can also confirm, as a bass...

    I'm on the H901. You can Google around. Tungkick seems to be providing instructions for the rootable devices.

    IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING

    i've read most of this thread but couldn't find this answer.   can someone recommend a replacement cable that DOES NOT have memory wire around the ears? i love my westone um2 braided cable, so something similar would be fantastic.   thanks.

    IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING

    they are busy.    you won't hear from them unless you call. you'll get shipping confirmation when they ship. that's it.   it took 3 weeks for them to do the first fitting. it was bad, so i sent them right back. it took them a month to send them back (will get them next week). i'm...

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

    got mine today, and i'm bummed out. i'm sure it is something they can fix, but i'm just impatient.   this is not my first pair of customs, so i do have some experience.   the left side fits perfectly. i can push them in (to seal further), move them side to side, and the sound is the...

    IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING

    Quote: if you have to spend any money to fix it, you might see what fisher thinks of you trying to drill out that pocket (very carefully). you could probably fix it yourself if that's the issue, but it is better to have a professional do it if it is no charge.

    Westone UM2. Worth $300?

    worth $300? yes.   they make everything sound good (even bad mp3 rips). they are neutral sounding which means they are perfect for musicians.  they are well designed. not like UE universal phones that stick way out and don't fit many people and require reshelling (I have TF10s). you...

    DIY custom fit monitors (IEM)

    what about a plastic/acrylic material for step #2. this may allow you to use the RTV silicone as one of the materials for your final product.   for instance, if you just wanted canal molds RTV silicone might be a great material for it.

    First timer with custom IEM

    single driver customs just doesn't make sense.   if i were you, i would try to find broken headphones on ebay or CL since you are getting them reshelled. you also might be able to get some cheap TF-10s since they were on sale for less than $100 on black friday.
