On my IEMs I go 2.5mm TRRS and for desktop full-size cans go with XLR. Cheers
Finally I decided to go for the XLR 4-pin termination and I bought a short XLR to 3.5mm stereo cable.
I don't mind having the short cable instead of an adaptor, besides, I recon I will be using balanced most of the time.
Happy with my decision.
Will have my 2.5mm cable next week also.
Good point. For me though, my 2.5 to XLR, and 2.5 to 3.5 adaptors are always plugged in to my amp so weight won't be an issue
I've been using cable adapters of all sorts for 50 years and never had any problems. Don't make mountains out of molehills.
You are only speaking for yourself. Dan has to take into account all his customers. Like you I have all sorts of adapters and have never broken a thing in my life. I have fixed many for other people though. One guy I know at work has broken every socket and connector you can think of. Almost all of the laptops he has owned has a broken charge socket and at least one broken USB.
The incredibly kind folks at MrSpeakers were gracious enough to host me at their offices today so I could have an extended audition of the Ether Flows and Ether C Flows. I've updated my ginormous shoot out review with my impressions of the (very impressive) pair: http://www.head-fi.org/t/824351/adventures-of-2-channel-guy-diving-head-first-into-the-head-fi-deep-end
It is remarkable how the new wave of TOTL headphones all vary in emphasis vs fundamentals. The quality and design and execution is SO much better than even a couple years ago. I can't wait to see where this innovation wave is going, and I'm super excited that there are folks like the team at MrSpeakers that are helping transform this industry (well done guys!).
Did you get to play with the Electrostatic?
I really wish I could have, but unfortunately I did not. I hope Dan and team bring them to the San Diego meet up in 3 weeks (I am very excited to hear where their innovation engine is going next!) If I get a chance to get some time with them, I'll share impressions and comparisons here.
Picked up my Ether Flow yesterday.
I cannot listen at the moment as I await other electronics.
However, after inspecting them with my eagle eyes I can confidently say they are beautifully made.
The finish is truly 1st class and the different materials used I think is a very well engineered design.
The blue sparkling paint is fantastic.
Oh, very important is the comfort. They are so light it's almost like nothing is on my head.
I have great pride in owning them.
Can't wait to start listening though.
Well done Dan and MrSpeakers
Congrats!! Plug them into your phone or computer or home receiver to let them break in at least until your gear rolls in.
I can't, 4 pin xlr termination ready for new head amp otherwise I would
In the process of breaking in a new pair myself. Very happy with the craftsmanship, weight, and overall finish. Sonically we shall see. So far so good.
