    Yeah, I keep coming back to considering Sony for the battery life. I so miss that! Will see if I can find a demo of the BL Mirco.

    Just a couple more photos of my Phantoms, with the Han Sound Redcore this time.

    This cable makes the Phantom a little clearer than it already is and gives the midrange just the slight bump I’m looking for, enough to make those vocals grab my heart by the palm and squeeze all the emotions out of it! Not that the Ares 2 was bad by any stretch though.

    Can't wait to hear your thoughts after they have at least 100 hours on them :wink:

    Neat pics folks. Love seeing everyone's choices. They really have some great designs.

    I'm considering a couple customizations and a rush order. That's still a substantial boon, even if only 10%. As far as I'm aware, there doesn't seem to be a code a returning customer could use. Admittedly, I haven't asked either. Was thinking of buying a universal Legend X and demo it for a week before sending it back, but there isn't one available it seems (5 week build time). I think I'll just wait for Canjam London and not be part of the volunteering staff/entrance reception this year so I can have more serious time auditioning the whole lineup to make up my mind as to which I need and then place my ciem order on the spot.

    Really looking forward to Canjam London this year. Eric (@EffectAudio) has mentioned Legend X with Janus D a few times to me now and it has made me very curious, so I hope EE and EA will have their booth next to each other again and I can give that a try. And of course Leonidas with my Phantom. Will be a great Canjam for me, as I have lots to catch up on after missing out last year. :D

    If you can hang on until Canjam London, then I think Empire had a show discount of about 20% last year. Of course that's no guarantee they will have one this year but might be worth waiting and seeing.

    Well, I would have to order Legend X as well, and while I wish I could, Legend X and Janus D is a bit beyond my current budget. :p

    Also, I have not even spent enough time with my Phantom yet, which I am really looking forward to. And I have quite a few cables to try with the Phantom, including a couple of really interesting cables coming in for review soon. (Will post some pictures when those come in.)

    But yeah, so much temptation! :D

    I'm using my Zeus for about 80% of my music listening. The Phantom takes up the other 20%. I just find the Zeus more magical.

    Oh, and if anyone is looking for a used A&K 240SS, check my sig below. I'm just not using it enough to justify keeping it.

    Last few days I have started thinking of selling my beloved NT6 , as I am seeing how Zeus gets all the love lately (and the space in my ears)

    especially now with the new Eos cable, i have seen Zeus elevated to even higher levels of clarity, transparency and soundstage expansion

    i am gonna say it again , the greatest thing about Zeus is that it can sound ****ing great even with a 150$ cable

    when i see people saying '' finally my 2-3K ciem sounds amazing after some eq'ing and a 1000$ cable'' it feels like hearing people saying ''my woman now looks amazing after having 5 plastic surgeries'' :nerd:

    just wanted to share some love for Zeus , seeing that people are mostly posting about the new kids on the block

    For those who own Legend X, I suggest that you get a really good Amp.
    My Legend X sounds way way better with just Audeze Deckard (much better than with AK380+AK Amp).

    The AMP4, or really any of the High Current modules for the DX200, does a nice job super-charging the LX. Probably not as good as a full desktop amp, but damn lovely! :D

    Anyone knows what the frequency range of the new empire series iems are? I only see the frequency range shown for the old legacy models.
  15. shadow1121
    Just quick question, for the 2pin of the current line up of EE, are these .78mm or .75mm? Was trying out some other cable with 0.78mm and it seems too snug and couldnt be inserted all the way through.
