Sweet surprise! Found a bag that contained all of my extra hooks, tips, and earloops. Going to celebrate by spending today on the original smooth tips and Surefire earhooks. After only a few minutes, these things have already disappeared on my head. Only way I remember they're still attached is if I move my head and feel the cord brush against my cheek. Almost forgot how weightless these things can be.

I got my pair of iSine LX's today in the post and damn these IEM's are dead-on transparent.

Even Slick Rick got the awesome 1, 2 treatment.

Does the iSine 20 still come with the Earlocks? Do the Surefire Earlocks fit it?

I just received my isine 10 from the sale. Disappointed to see they sent me the v1 cipher cable. Maybe I missed the fine print? Anyone else get a v1?

Edit: The fine print:

Note: Sale only available to US Customers. Some units may include V1 CIPHER cables and Ear Locks. Audeze cannot guarantee which accessory version will be included with your purchase, and does not offer exchanges.

I guess I missed this in my excitement to order but this kind of stinks. I guess I will just return them. I agree V2 is better particularly as to the form factor.

I'm wanting to order some of the 3d printed earhooks featured earlier in this thread, not sure about the settings to use when ordering - infill and layer thickness? Any advice on this would be appreciated. @kakaworu

How do the isine 10 compare against koss ksc75
IMO the Koss KSC75 sounds more natural than the iSine 20, then again I don't have access to an apple device to use the lightning connector on the Cipher Cable.
The iSine 20 is a fun set of earphones, but I personally don't use it as daily drivers like I do with the Koss KSC-75 for home usage. The Koss KSC-75 is truly an odd device, as it's weightless and the sound signature is something that's easily accustomed to after listening to it after a while. The iSine 20 is technically capable of having amazing everything, but is limited by its' stock sound signature.
I have 5 headphones on standby for home usage; the HD600, the ATH-A900X, a custom pair of Grados, iSine 20's and Koss KSC-75's. I find myself reaching for the Koss the majority of the time, and the iSine 20 when I really want to get engaged to my music, or to use it for gaming. The iSine 20 has superior imaging that makes it absolutely amazing for competitive games compared to the Koss KSC-75.
I've recently started only reaching for earphones because the chair I use; the Staples Hyken albeit super comfortable, does not let me turn my head due to its' high neck rest when using full-sized headphones.

If you want to keep the Koss KSC-75 and "upgrade" them, I would look at DSP's such as OOYH by Darin Fong.
I use Quad ESL Speakers for the Koss KSC-75 and AZen Adagio Plus for the iSine 20's.

Got the replacement Bluetooth Cipher cable... and it doesn't charge or power on. Oh noes! Of course, it's right before a trip. Doh.

Hello Deckard916
I recommend using 0.1mm thickness with 100% infill for FDM printing. As for SLS or SLA which i am not familiar with, might be in similar setting.
