Good timing with the Valentine's Day weekend. "Here, darling, I bought you a $3000 pair of earphones. I'll just look after them for you..."
Get customs to match the shoes and handbag... :ksc75smile:

Actually I´m having a blast only with se535, hearing instruments that I´ve never have heard with my old earbuds. It´s like someone with vision in B&W suddenly seeing colors.
Yes, but I found the 535 to be qualitatively the same as the 425, it just had a 'bigger' sound, which I don't believe served it well, at least in the gear I had at the time... Maybe a better cable or source would have took the 535 to a new level over 425?
I started with Shures as well back in 2009 or so, the SE535. Loved them for the size and comfort while traveling, great sound isolation on planes.

@third_eye - did you post the show specials? How about Jude's preview video?
I could not see either, but might have missed it...
I guess they're still trying to find some Twizzlers to put in the background of the video, hence the delay :laughing:

Curious to what tracks other folks will use to test gear this weekend. I know there will be a lot of variety due to personal preferences and tastes.

This weekend some of my favorite tracks I’ll be listening to include:

Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (Live) from Face Value (Deluxe). The opening part of the track (first 1:35) with the audience gives a sense of space and direction, and then the drums. What more needs to be said about the famous drum sequence at 5:54, and the live version has several more terrific drum sequences from 6:16 on, almost every 10-12 seconds or so. Who doesn't do the "air drums" when listening :smile:

Hans Zimmer - Why So Serious from The Dark Knight soundtrack. Strong bass throughout the track, but it really kicks in at ~3:25.

Red Rider - Lunatic Fringe from As Far As Siam. At the 23 second mark there’s a very quiet phrase “See you on the other side” and I find that useful to measure separation.

Manu Katché - Unstatic from Unstatic. Terrific drums.

Fascinating Rhythm - Dave Grusin from The Gershwin Connection. Another track with great drums.

John Williams - Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Some choir type vocals, drums and bass. I love soundtracks so this is a good test.

Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatore - Overture from Halo 3 Soundtrack. The opening 30 seconds with the rain will really help with determining soundstage.

Max Richter - Europe, After the Rain from Memoryhouse. Another track with an opening sequence of rain, and rain to close the track for the last 40 seconds or so.

Candy Dulfer - Lily Was Here from Candy Dulfer Live in Amsterdam. Great saxophone. At the 6-7 second mark something is dropped or the mike stand moves, and the someone in the audience coughs at the right, rear. Great for determining sense of direction I the soundstage.

For reference all the tracks/albums above are on the US version of Tidal except for Candy Dulfer Live in Amsterdam.

Looking forward to finding out what you’ll be listening to.

Even though I am not coming I still look at flight prices multiple time s a day. The plane still has many unsold seats, yet the prices are at some of their highest points. Only 2 seats left in first class and they are asking over $1800 right now. At its lowest it was $799. It always amazes me how often the prices fluctuate.

C'mon, dude. While this is a bummer that you're missing this one, you have to make it out to a CanJam this year. We can't grab a bite if you don't show up to an event.

I have gone to shows where I wasn't working for Noble, I was bored to death. I come to help people and steer them in the direction of what they might want to buy, that's the fun for me, as weird as it sounds. I don't come to listen to gear as a potential buyer, I have gear I am perfectly content with, I have never been a grail hunter when it comes to sound stuff. Seeing friends and hanging out is great of course, while that is a possibility in Socal, coming over after the show to see people, or even volunteering for the CJ team is possible. I don't want to say something that might not happen. I have given 6 years of my time for free, I just think that time is done, I am worth something, just like anyone else who works for others in this business/hobby.

Thank you for this. I’m a n00b trying to learn everything I can. Bought ZX507 and se846 for the starters.
:relaxed: The SE846 is very, very good! :smile:

Curious to what tracks other folks will use to test gear this weekend. I know there will be a lot of variety due to personal preferences and tastes.

Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (Live) from Face Value (Deluxe). The opening part of the track (first 1:35) with the audience gives a sense of space and direction, and then the drums. What more needs to be said about the famous drum sequence at 5:54, and the live version has several more terrific drum sequences from 6:16 on, almost every 10-12 seconds or so. Who doesn't do the "air drums" when listening :smile:

Manu Katché - Unstatic from Unstatic. Terrific drums.
@NovaFlyer, might I suggest adding Tears For Fears's Woman In Chains to your test track list? It's fantastically recorded and mastered. But also, both Manu Katché and Phil Collins played percussion on it. :thumbsup:

Disappointing that Noble's only offering discounts on Universals when many of their competitors are offerring them on both. In other news, where's that show preview?
