    I remember seeing someone els day their headphones had hiss in the thread, but can’t find the post and not sure if he returned them

    I think the question is whether you hear hiss on all tracks not just one song.

    Very possible that there is an impedance mismatch between the iPhone and the A5

    Nope don’t hear it on all tracks, but the tracks I do it’s really noticeable compared to my m1060s or hd 650s. Same thing on different sources not just the iPhone.

    I wonder if it’s just the detail retrieval bringing out the track imperfections more on the a5s because on other songs they sound good. Could you give that track I linked a quick listen and turn it up a bit

    Thank you for taking the time to listen to it!

    Anyone use comply tips with these? If so, which series size fits them

    I'll second that.
    A5 has amasing ability to reproduce high frequencies, so bring out noise IF it is present in the recording.

    Cool thanks guys, I figured that might be the case after listening to some other songs. The thing is I like a lot of singer songwriter stuff, which isn’t always the most well mastered, but it’s what I listened to first

    They sound really good though. A bit bright and sharp compared to my other headphones, but also more detail and clarity I would say too

    After almost 2 weeks, I can confirm that the A5 are magnificent.

    You only have to worry about choosing the filter and tip that best suits your tastes and ergonomics. I already mentioned that with the black filter I found it hard in the upper zone. I changed it for gray and now perfect for me. It sounds excellent with any musical style. I am quite eclectic in terms of musical tastes and there is still nothing that the A5 does not do well.

    And if its sound is excellent, its ergonomics is superior. I have been a few years without using IEMs because they bothered me and with these I can be hours and hours without the minimum discomfort. In an IEM it is an indissoluble equation, sound and comfort.

    I think they can be an End of the game for many of us.

    Agreed. I find myself not using my IE800 anymore. A5 is that good. End game for me for sure (until A6 comes out :D )

    I used to think there was such a thing as "end of game". Now I realize that periodically I need to shift around my game.

    The A5 is remarkably similar in signature to the FLC8S, but has less pieces to "go on vacation". And by the way, I used to think the FLC8S was my end game unit.

    For those who are mentioning sibilance issues, I would suggest staying away from IEMs with "reference" sound signatures. Those units unit have extended high end, and less low end. My guess is that the people who mention sibilance should probably stick with "fun" sounding units. My taste runs in between reference and mild "fun". I use the gray filters on the LZ-A5; and run the gunmetal filter for the high end on the FLC8S. The fun signature crowd probably leans to the gold filter on the FLC8S. I suppose a filter other than the black or grew with the A5 would make for a more fun sound but I am happy with the grey and see no reason to go with the filters that, it would appear, reduce the treble.

    I think LZ and Forrest are geniuses when it comes to IEM units. Thanks to both vendors.

    Don't know if you are talking about the A5 when mentioning less low end? If so then you are 100% not getting a good seal. These have so much low end that it has rumble for days. I use grey/red filters and with right tips they are now harsh free, have super extended treble that is very well done, and bass/sub-bass of a home speaker.

    Actually I was talking about reference sound signatures having less low end, by design. I get plenty of low end with the A5.

    Has anyone tried Acoustune AET07 and AET08 eartips on these?
  15. ericp10
    A5s are on a one hundred hours burn in. I can't think of anything better than the A5 under $300 (and not many over that price). Well, until the burn in is done, back to the ME.1 and U-12.
