    Anyone have the link to the aqua blue version A83 from Japan? Its branded under another name.
  2. HiFiChris Contributor
    It is called UPQ Q-music QE80.

    My A83 are for sale, I kind of need the money and can feel comfortable I've upgraded.
    I will also ship them worldwide so take advantage or our weak Australian dollar.
    Sales in the sig.

    Good price. Yeah, I did the same a while back too. Somebody should pick this up from you.

    If you are not buying foam, what's the best place to buy spare tips in the UK?
  6. Hisoundfi Contributor
    Trinity Audio is coming out with some "Khombi" tips that are going to be awesomesauce. They are based in the UK.

    They should be released soon. They're a combination of silicone and foam.

    Thanks, I'll keep an eye out.

    Hi all. Just stumbled upon these on Aliexpress and decided to look into it and found this thread. Looks like a good pair of earphones from a cool chinese company. Would love to try out a pair and see what all the fuss is about, though I never spend over USD$100 on headphones...
    After finding these, I've been a little bit curious though. How do you pronounce the name 'Fidue'. Is it feh-dew, fai-dew, fee-dew, something-dew?
    Maybe one day I'll look into purchasing a pair. I found a seller selling the UPC QE80 (supposedly the same product as a rebranded oem) for about HKD$1200 which equates to about $120 USD [which seems like a great deal right?], so maybe that might be a choice.
    Good day all and happy listening :).
    P.S. Please do share more pictures of your A83's! And that Sirius flagship looks amazing...

    Just picked up a pair of A83 and experimenting with tips. My current favourite are Spinfit, but have heard a lot of people recommending Spiral Dots - is there a massive difference?
  10. Midgetguy
    That's gonna depend on the listener. The slightest variation to one set of ears (like mine for example) could be a massive difference to someone else's ears. I don't have Spiral Dots, but for example, I don't hear anything I consider to be massive differences between using foams, stock silicone, or Spinfit. Tips, like cables, are mostly for comfort/fit/ergonomics for me. But that's not the case for everyone; it depends on the ears, mine just aren't quite as discerning.

    I know what you mean. I generally use foams due to the fact my ear canals are the same size as dinner plates (or certainly seem to be as far as fitting in ears goes), but the main difference I notice over silicon is the fit. I like the warmth and isolation foam usually brings but tried Comply and then Spinfit on these and the Spinfits seem to let the midrange breathe a bit more and push the bass lower down the scale without losing too much of the isolation and fit (for a change).

    Never tried Spiral Dots but I know some people swear by them so was tempted to order a set to complete my tip collection as seen to have everything else. Want to make sure I have every bar coveted by the time the Trinity Hunter starts shipping! :wink:

    "I'd like to buy some foam tips for my IEMs"
    "What size?"
    "Dinner plate"

    The struggle is real. :wink:

    Hi guys - can anyone compare these to the Noble 3U in terms of sound signature and detail retrieval? Looking at some Nobles in a trade deal and wondering if they would be worthwhile if I already have (and enjoy) the A83? Any help or suggestions would be vertu much appreciated!
