Does anybody know how, or where to, buy the BlueMini device? I have searched everywhere, and I can't find it anywhere. I really don't want to buy the $300 Deva just to get the $80 Bluemini device for an R10P :deadhorse:
Contact Hifiman to get one.

I now have the R10p. I've been on the fence about it since it got released, and I was able to do a trade with a fellow head-fi member recently. Long story short, I was sleeping. First impressions are impressive. Good low-end, good detail (though not at good as the Susvaras). I have the BlueMini coming sometime soon, and I'm curious to see how that sounds. Sound isolation is adequate, but it could be better.

Sound leakage is small, and probably not noticeable 5 feet away from the headphones. Fit is pretty good, though I did notice a hot spot on top of my head after extended listening (I just shifted the headband to fix that issue though).

Dynamics and soundstage are also good. I like the way it looks, visually, as well. The cables are much better than stock Susvara cables, and the headphone has great build quality.

So you traded the Elite for the R10-P

Keep us posted with your impressions
Yes. I know at least one well respected headfi contributor who initially liked them a lot but changed his mind later. Keep us posted.

Love my R10P's. Easily the best closed headphone out right now in my opinion. They do so many thing very well and are starting to sound less and less like a closed headphone. Congrats on the acquisition!

Had the R10-P for almost six months now, it's the closest to a closed back Susvara that you can get 😉

Changing the cable does improve the sound, but it took about 500 hours for the headphone to settle down.

It’s also an excellent Susvara-alternative for those of us who have bass head tendencies :wink: :L3000:

Impressive for a single entry headphone. I bet it sounds phenomenal with the R10P’s. I’m using a silver dragon cable from moon audio. The Vykari makes my cable look like a string, haha.

Vykari is one of the best (if not the best) sounding cables out there.
