    What to get after k10u

    I've been out of the loop for a while now and since then more and more IEMs have come to the market. So much so that I don't know where to begin. I had the Shure SE846 but lost them one night. The bass was amazing. Very visceral. However, I feel like they didn't have any timbre. Notes didn't...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I've often said that there's a bit of air missing in these bad-boys. I think I found a fix for that which I'm pleased with. I took the filter part out of the 'filter', as well as the foam if you choose to experiment with a filter that does have foam. The result: less harsh than with no filter at...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    inb4 Savant has a single 'balanced' driver. At that price it's very tempting to make my first Noble IEM; but that K10u...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Gaming and Music. I'll probably end up selling it for something else but was wondering if it's possible to force something on the card.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Hey guys. I've had the ZXR for a long time but have recently made the switch to linux. Creative doesn't support Linux, however, the operating system recognizes the device but doesn't play anything through it (speakers or headset). When I restart my computer into windows my sound works but my...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I haven't because I don't know where I could get extra filters. If in the end I decide not to keep them, I'd hate for that to cause me some inconvenience. Though, it would be an audio-crime not to try. I need more info on how and why the empty black tube differs from the empty white. [I have...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Is there any mod or any way of increasing separation on the SE846 without losing much, if any, bass? I feel as though a few notes get lost when listening to the SE846 with the blue filters but I do not enjoy the white filters as much as the blues. Vocals are smooth as butter, very soothing, but...

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    I think that's the problem with Universals in general- everyone will hear them differently due to the unique shape of our own ears. The air between every instrument / layer gives it quite a spacious feel whereas you say it's closed in. The sockets on my universal are recessed about 1mm to a...

    Earphone Tip suggestion

    I've got weird ears. I know my left is different from my right. Mostly shallow inserts work for me to bring out the treble/soundstage/bass otherwise everything is a muffled mess. Even worse, the Westone star tips have to have some suction action going on as in I have to stick them in and then...

    New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne"

    I don't know if they are faulty but I can't believe that a TOTL would sound the way it does. I'll try to get a replacement and see if there's improvement.

    New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne"

    Just doesn't make sense for a company to put out a product, which is all about first impressions, and have the end-user put in work to make it sound like it's supposed to. It's really shocking to me because JH is known to excel at Rock but after listening to a few songs they sound so...

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    After years of reading about people and their burn-in theories, I'm surprised that most haven't realized the burn-in is not of the headphone but of the sound signature and your own ears getting used to it. From my own experience I used the westone 4 for over a year then sent them in for a wire...

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    I'm sure what people really want is a comparison between the top-tier UIEMs like the FT334. All I can do is my thoughts coming from the Westone 4.   Soundstage: It's wider from left to right. But you don't get the feeling of them being full sized headphones or speakers. Probably because how...

    I ordered from Stephen Guo. You can find his profile on here and send him a PM. They ship from China but get here pretty fast. Stephen is from http://custom-iem.com/   edit: on the website, under 'how to order', has the instructions on how to contact Stephen :)

    Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival

    So I received my Unique Melody Mentor Universals today. Out of the box they sound like everything I was hoping for. It usually takes me a week or two to get accustomed to the sound signature of new IEMs but these being everything that I was looking for tonally made it quite easy to go from my...

    Are the universal samples only for Singapore or will they ever release them here in the US?

    Best Workout Headphones under 100

    I agree with the Shure SE215 for ~$100. Probably the only choice for me. At that pricepoint you should look for any headphones that can use comply foam tips (or similar). They will stay in your ears regardless of what you do.

    Sennheiser IE80s vs. Utimate Ears UE900?

    You prefer the Sennheiser signature over the others, I say stick with it. But I did hear of a Sennheiser ie800, maybe you should wait?
