Not to sound too cliche, and by no means I consider myself to be a "photographer", but even with my aging Galaxy phone camera the picture of Socrates y-split worth a thousand words.


What Alex is actually saying : "For anyone looking for a next phone upgrade - #GetSamsung" :p


Thought the same thing, the lighting especially is outstanding. Both Ryan and Daniel have such good photography and it just seems to be getting better all the time.

See, everytime I take a product photo myself and compared it to theirs, I have the urge to delete my photo...

Did someone say splits


#FamilyPortrait 🔥

Now listening to some lossless music streaming off QQMusic on the SP2000Cu and the Socrates paired with the FitEar C435. What always amazes me about the 435 is how transparent it is. Listening to Stefanie Sun and the music is so rich and lush. Impeccable timbre and decay. Kudos @Eric Chong ! Home run with the Socrates!

The C435 was legendary in those days! As we suspected the "Socrates" does make for a good partner with the 435! Thanks for confirming this Mr Lee 🙏

Yeah, I know exactly how that is and so I gave up comparing my own to theirs long ago. Saves me the embarrassment of having to confront my own inadequacy in operating the camera I have. :sweat_smile:

Looks like the Socrates case has a tab with a clip that you can attach to a carabiner clip and such.

I do like the colour and the look of the LE case, but I was looking more along the lines of the Socrates one. Any plans to release one like that down the line?

I have a Dignis Arca coming in so there's no rush. But, a smallet form factor down the line would be nice.

I have a couple of Dignis Arca cases and they're great for everyday storage, but even better for travel. Great protection for IEMs and a cable, and lightweight while offering good protection.

Another nice review. Really surprised about the LX pairing and bringing the mids forward. As always, nice photos, seems the black cables almost mixes in some with your famous countertop. I do wonder why Eletech decided to forgo the chin slider, as I find it essential when using my Prudence with larger universal type IEMs such as the CA Solaris.

I think the reason is that for these cables, it could potentially cut the cable insulation, especially metal ones that give a premium finish. If they add plastic ones, though less likely to scratch the insulation, they do not fit in the design pattern. It's a trade-off.

Perhaps it is better for Eletech to provide an option for those who would love to add the chin slider. it's more of a personal choice, but these cables are not designed for professionals who would use them on the stage, which they prefer durability and chin slider is a must.

Yes we will be looking into more options of the cases in the future. It all depends on the supply of leather and the production schedule/capacity of it! :)

You've got it there! Meanwhile for users needing a chin slider, they may request for us to include at no charge. We're also in the process of looking into the possibilities a 'removable' chin slider so users can choose if they want it on / or not.

I am interested in a chin slider too if you found a removable one.
Sometimes after you curl the cable, over time it might be hard to tame.
So a chin slider is helpful.

Excellent points about the use case of listening at home vs. pros.

In fact it was this exact conversation with Alex that got us kick started on the "Detachable Chin Slider" project. We're actually currently working toward that! Will keep you guys in the loop! :)

I could NEVER get EA to throw in or include a slider on my custom Ares ll 8-wires. As I walk with my setup, I need one. So I used a thin piece of rawhide leather, which worked well. Glad to hear you are pro-slider here. :)
