The Hidition NT6 pro was my first CIEM purchased blindly based on @averagejoe's TOTL CIEM review thread years ago. The pro and the SE5 have sat on top of the charts for as long as I have been a Head-Fi member in 2011. However, the world of CIEMs have come a long ways since then with new options popping up every day. This whole time, there has never been a tour or even demos in the US to audition so US buyers have always had to buy blindly. So US Head-Fiers, here is your chance to hear why I have sung such praise for these CIEMs for so long. Plus, we all finally have a chance to hear the pro vs. the non-pro to see what the difference is since nobody that i know owns both. If you are interested, please speak up now as I am opening up for participants. The rules and requirements for becoming a member are listed below. http://hidition.co.kr/ US CIEM Demo Tour, Featuring: New Tears 6-PRO: $ 1,232,000 KRW ($1085 US) - 6 full range speakers, 5-way passive crossover, provides enhanced bass and delicate treble. New Tears 6: $ 1,188,000 ($1045 US) - Use 6 balanced armature transducers, 4-way passive crossover, provides a smooth, delicate and comfortable listening environment Viento-Reference: $ 1,485,000 ($1300 US) - 4 full range speakers, 4way passive crossover, bass / mid tone control switch Each of these CIEMs are available as either custom or universal. Tour Kit Pictures: The tour kit is nicely done with lots of accessories and a case for each. My NT6pro: Tour Instructions (7 Day Audition) The participant list is organized logistically to minimize shipping costs starting from Seattle. The the tour will begin with the first in the list for a 7-day audition. Thereafter they will be responsible to deliver or ship the demo kit to the next participant in the list. Upon Receipt: Post: Please immediately post on the thread both receipt and condition of the demo kit. PM: Please immediately PM the next participant on the list to arrange delivery (if local) or shipping. This step is critical to avoid delaying the tour. It is each participants responsibility to keep the tour moving. If the participant is unresponsive for all three days of your audition, it is your responsibility to move on to the next in the list so the tour does not get stalled. Please PM Barra with any issues. Issues: Please PM Barra with any issues. Dropping Out: Please PM Barra if you feel you cannot fulfill your tour responsibility and I will pull you from the list. Optional Review: Reviews are completely optional, but greatly appreciated by all Head-Fi members.

Formal Reviews: While you are welcome to post formal reviews on this thread, they are often more manageable if you use the Head-Fi review functionality and post a link here for people to follow.

There is a filter inside the sound tube that should not be blocked or punctured or sound quality will be affected significantly.
