Was supremely busy the last few weeks with exam prep and Chinese New Year. Now that both are done and over with, it's time to reward myself with something fitting. My latest IEMs and the inspiration for its design.


Beautiful stuff, man! Can’t wait to hear more impressions plus comparisons with more well-known IEMs. No rush, though; those first few days are for cherishing and cherishing only. :wink:

Great looking IEMs! Very elegant!

With those it's probably easy to get lost in your music => happy listening!

Stunning Lau! Looking forward to your impressions. Last I checked you were leaning towards the trebly side of things, so I'll be curious to hear where these eventually land for you.

The trip to treble city has been worthwhile, there is so much fun in uncovering all the veils. Now that the thirst for sparkle has been sated, the holy grail of IEMs seems like a good place to go next.

Still loving the looks of these.

Glad to hear you like them Collin!

However, I should point out that preliminary studies have shown that owning 5 or more shootout iems is a sign of serious addiction. If you notice such symptoms in yourself or people close to you, do not hesitate to seek professional guidance. If you ever need someone to talk to, I am there for you.

:):):)

I assume that by offering to talk, you are going to help me decide on my 6th and 7th pair?

Very nice, I am so jealous! My inner bass head is secret no more. Yesterday I got the Rhapsodio Saturn back in and paired them with the PlusSound Exo Silver+Gold cable, the resulting bass was absolutely glorious! The closest I have heard so far to a speaker-like bass. Can't imagine what the Legend X would sound like, but I am drooling just thinking about it! :D

Love BASS! :ksc75smile:
