I thought I settled for the SednaEarfit Light short tips for the Odin but then the elliptical tips by ADV intrigued me...

ADV Eartune tips vs SednaEarfit Light Shorts:

The ADV tips offer the deepest insertion out of the different tips I’ve tried: SpiralDot++, Sedna Light Shorts, and Final Type-E. These oval tips are quite comfortable too and they don’t move much once they are in my ears.

I’ll be spending more time with these tips to see if I end up switching back to the Sedna Light Shorts .

Hi everyone,

Wanted to use my first post to express my gratitude to those who have helped me on my journey with Odin. First, to Andrew and the great team at MusicTeck for their help in my Odin Founder’s Edition purchase. They are highly responsive and always very polite and helpful.

Also want to thank Dean and Josh at Empire Ears for their excellent customer care and for creating such a phenomenal IEM. Truly amazing and I am really enjoying my listening experience. Never imagined an IEM could sound so detailed!

Lastly, I want to express my thanks for all who have posted here with their listening impressions. I appreciate your comments and expertise in helping guide me in this purchase since I did not have access in my location to try out these IEMs prior to purchasing.

Respectfully,
Ken

Buying it new. Lost my mind. Damn.

Hope they sound better than LCD-i4 (they do for sure) because I prefer Valkyrie over LCD-i4 :)
LCD-4 have a soundstage to die for. Music comes from everywhere. Separation is stellar. Smooth like butter. No harshness.

I can't quite hear that mid spike at all. I love how none of the sounds fatigue me. Even after long hours or waking up and going for a spin. Lol.
Same here. Other than when my Odin was new with little time on it, I’ve not had any problem with a fatiguing middle range.

Same. I lost track on how many hours I have now. Definitely over 100 I think.

On transducers, I usually give it 200 hours to fully settle, on digital gear, as much as 400 hours.

Yes. And I'm getting this off topic. Back to Empire Ears, I go.

I must be at 500 hours plus... I hate these things.

That being said, tomorrow makes 8 weeks since I ordered my custom LX. Should have them in the near future. I don't think I'll need anything other than the Odin / LX duo.
