    Help me choose! Triple or Quad 1964 Ears?

    Finally, the time has come where I can purchase a new set of Customs! My UE5c's have served me well over the last 6 year, but they are beginning to die on me. I have decided to purchase a pair of 1964 ears largely due to budget constraints, but also because I hear great things about their...

    Buying new IEM's. Shure SE535, or 1964-Q?

    This is my first post, so firstly I apologize if this has been discussed before. I did a search and didn't see any direct comparisons, so I figured I would create a new thread and get some feedback.   I am looking for a nice set of IEMs to replace my old Klipsch Custom 3's that I returned...

    oh, head-fi you continue to hurt my wallet....   So within the last 2 months I've started working on my portable gear. I've bought a nano 6th gen which lead to TF10's which lead to a Cowon J3 which lead to a UM3X   Currently I've been left wondering what the upgrade path from the UM3X...

    Deciding between Custom and Universal IEMs

    Hi,   I'm new to the forums, but I have been here and there looking around the forums at a lot of very interesting post.  I recently have decided to buy my first mid-range to high-end IEMs.  I have read numerous post on the forums which state that the quality of custom IEMs in most cases are...

    Best IEMs based on some specific preferences

      I'm a newbie to nice headphones (I've owned a Sennheiser CX-250, but that's about it). But I've been getting into the sound system thing a little bit (I now own an Infinity Beta 50 based 7.1 sound system). I'm looking for good headphones in the $50-$250 range (but could push it a little...

    First custom IEMs -- advice and guidance

    Howdy, I'm looking for some advice and guidance while purchasing my first custom fit IEMs. I'm looking for something I can wear for extended periods of time while at work, so comfort and isolation are important -- and I'm looking to take a step up in sound quality as well. I've been looking at...

    1964-D vs Westone 3 vs Ortonfon e-Q5

    1964-Dual($270) vs Westone 3 vs Ortonfon e-Q5($288)   which would be a better bet? a dual driver custom, signle drive universal, or triple driver universal with the same setup as 1964-T? they are all about the same price.   Iike highly detailed mids and highs, smooth and fluid sound...

    REVIEW: 1964-Q

    I am writing this review in hopes to help anyone who, like me, have been quietly lurking around these forums for info on 1964 ears.      My background:     I am a musician.  I make dance/techno music, I sing, and I've played drums for over 30 years.     I have played...

    Westone 4s the gateway to customs?

    Kids, stay away from the Westone 4s. They are bad for your wallet as they lead to other things, like customs. I just got the 4s and was not sure what to expect. I am a highly evolved basshead who started with juvenile ears craving Superfi 5 EB-like bass, but slowly grew opposable thumbs and...

    Need portable amp suggestion

    I need a portable amp for my 1964-Q custom iems and ATH-M50. I was looking at the highly praised RSA SR-71, but after I saw the price I decided I would rather not have an amp that costs more than either of my phones. Are there any amps under 200 that would offer a nice soundstage, and improve SQ...

    1964-q custom iems - amp required?

    I am considering 1964-q but 46 Ohms impedance worries me. Can iPhone 4 drive this in-ears or would need an amp? For 500 bucks a real steal, but if had to spend another 250 for an amp, I may be better with JH11 (for 850 though).     Has anyone tried 1964-q with an iPhone (or iPod Touch or...

    Are Custom Earphones really all that fragile?

    mhm , title. I see tons of people babying their customs alot, and I myself do that in excess sometimes. But really, what makes a custom anymore fragile than say the usual IEM? I mean the acrylic is actually pretty thick as compared to some iem shells.   The only difference is that the...

    Impressions in Singapore

    I have almost decided to get myself 1964Qs for my birthday but still need to get impressions done to do kick off the process. Can someone kindly point me to a trusted audiologist in Singapore?   Also, for the Singaporeans, how does tax/customs work on expensive shipments?

    Beat Audio Cables from UM (Unique Melody)?

    hey guys, I'm really new to cabling and would like to look for a cable for upcoming 1964EARS-Quads. Obviously am looking for something that will upgrade the sound quality, but am putting quite a bit of emphasis on cable size (not thick and bulky, I've seen pictures of the Null Audio Lune and it...

    Another 1964-Q Review...

    Is needed because I can't find a good comparison. Anyone own these? Does anyone know how they compare to competing Custom IEM's in the same price bracket [IE Westone ES2, JHPro 5, JHPro 7, UE 5, Fidelity Quads, etc]? I know ericp10 did a short write up but does anyone else have any opinions...

    1964-Q quad ear custom IEM....frustratingly slow

    I Could not be more excited to get these, but it is looking like it is going to be close to 6 weeks from the time I placed my order before 1964 ears sends me my quad custom IEM....Is this typical? I hear most people talking about 2-3 weeks before they get their custom IEMs in the mail. And on...

    If you could keep only one IEM, which one would it be?

    HI! If you could only keep one single IEM/headphone of your whole collection, which one would you keep, and why?   Personally, from the phones I own at the moment (SM3, RE-252, IE8, Radiopaq Jazz, HD-555)  I think I would keep the SM3, because they offer the best balance between isolation...

    UE4 Pro v. AC2 v. JH5 v. 1964, compared to DBA-02 ?

    I had a chance to listen to the UE4 Pro Custom at our last Local Meet, and I really liked them, but the environment was less than ideal for critical listening.   These are at the price point where I might be interested in snapping up a pair, now that I got the impressions made.   Has...

    Customize either TF10 or SE530, or get 1964 customs(which one)?

    I've decided to go custom route out of curiosity since there are more affordable options out there.  I've been doing some researching, and leaning toward Fisher molding my TF10, SE530 or getting 1964 to make customs for me, since they are in the states.     If anybody have experience from...
