The older, cheaper Trimetal has been replaced by the newer, more expensive T-metal. I guess there's probably more gold in the wires.

I've sold my old X Trimetal to @linux4ever who paired it with his H8.2, and the good news is, he reports it as a great combo. The bad news is you can't really get that cable new anymore.
That's very true. I'm unfortunately not aware of any other cable in PlusSound's line-up that would pair as well with the H8.2 as the Ares II does.

The day has finally arrived, as have my new pair of Harmony's! Jeez, that was an agonizing wait :p

Fit seems perfect, and I'm still in the process of listening to them to make sure it sounds like I remember. Pictures soon to follow :)

I'm glad to hear that, your conchas have such untypical shape I was quite afraid TBH.
I honestly didn't know that until I got them and saw how different the two pieces looked. I'm glad you were able to still make them! Hope it wasn't too difficult to put them together :p

I like the simple design!
Thanks! When I first got them they were actually fairly gray indoors, but in direct sunlight the pale turquoise really shines. I like them :)

wow indeed!

Are they full 'solid white'?
They aren't white. They are a very light turquoise with small white hearts on them. The color was a custom one that I asked for :)

Bought a used one from another user. Am so stoked. Now impatiently waiting for my appointment next week to get the ear impressions. And a loooong wait to get it re-shelled. By the way, what DAP does everyone use H8.2? In the market for a DAP and wanted to see what goes best with this.

Congratulations. You've got yourself a treat.

I use Ak120ii and that's one good dap. You might find couple of them on sale here in the used section for $500-550. For that price, I wouldn't even think and would just buy it.

It pairs quite well with chord Mojo and ifi idsd black label dac/amp.

If you are on a budget but still want good quality device with good quality sound, I would recommend cayin n5ii. The new one retails for $369. That's outstanding price to performance.

Good luck.

Thank you for the info. I would prefer not to use an amp and play directly fron the DAP. Is AK120ii powerful enough to drive it directly?
