    Just joined the kickstarter on these. Typically this would be way too early to start a dedicated thread, but one of our most respected members already has a review out, so I guess it's time to start the discussion.

    Not only is it 1964's new flagship, it also has the all-new-super-cool Adel technology.

    joker's brief review: http://theheadphonelist.com/brief-review-1964ears-1964-adel-a12/
    Levanter's quick comparison between Layla and A12: http://www.head-fi.org/t/739712/1964-ears-adel-iems/1290#post_11475453

    So the Kickstarter has ended. Who else jumped in on these, especially after joker's review? Also, I'm a first time kickstarter. Can someone tell me what I should expect next?

    To not get your item within the originally promised time frame.

    Wow, iQube. That was my first ever Hifi amp. I wish it had better batteries though- doesn't charge any longer. What a great, neutral sounding amp.
    Anyway, I'm hoping 1964- with their experience selling to the masses, and having now outsourced the U series production, will be able to hit their timelines more accurately.
    That being said, Feb 2015 is rather early. Even if it's delayed a bit, I don't mind..

    So I've been checking out their customs. They're nice, but they're not Wizard nice. Anyone know if we can give them some wizard designs to copy? :)
    Here's 1964's twitter feed with many designs:
    Alternatively I may want to copy some of their existing designs. This one looks sweet:
    Or this pair:

    You won't see Wizard level of craftsmanship your A12s- however to see what will be available on the A12s, check out the IEM customizer currently available on 1964s site. All those options are supposedly available on the A12s.

    Thanks. I got these pictures from 1964's own Twitter. So I'm sure they can be done..

    I just got a great update from Vitaliy that I thought I'd share.
    I asked him two questions:
    1) what size will the A12 demos be, specifically comparing to the V8 demo and the universal Roxanne;
    2) if the sound from the custom and demo will be the same.
    His answer:
    The A12 demo will be slightly bigger than the V8 demo set. [vs the universal Roxanne] The size will be MUCH smaller. There is a lot of wasted space in the Uni-roxanne. The sound will be the same as custom.
    Hope this helps those who, like me, are getting the A12 demo!

    I'm interested in these demos-how does one go for the A12 demos? How much are they? Curious...
  10. jelt2359 Contributor
    Doctorjazz my friend, their kickstarter campaign just ended a week or so ago. They seem to be ready to re-introduce soon though at an introductory price (they actually sent out an email but then recalled it). Stay tuned!
  11. doctorjazz
    Thanks, I know they ended the Kickstarter, but reading the posts it sounded like they have demos left from it selling ata discount. Wishful thinking on my part, I suppose. Anyway, Merry Christmas all, and to all some great listening!
  12. jelt2359 Contributor
    In this case, they're using 'demos' interchangeably with 'universals'... So the 'demos' are actually personalised, hand-made universals, for those who don't want customs :)
    Merry Christmas my friend!
  13. doctorjazz
    OK, thanks jelt2359, hope these babies sound even better than expected (and I expect great sound), again, Merry Christmas to you and yours, and to all the good little audiophiles out there enjoying or anticipating their new toys!
  14. jelt2359 Contributor
    We're getting closer now. Who else ordered these? :)
  15. jelt2359 Contributor
    I just received the email from 1964, and submitted my design! YES! Now the wait begins.. Anyone else??
