    Good to hear. I’d be running it through a balanced cable if I were to go that route. I love the Andromedas but I find that I’m having to second guess using them because they are so expensive. The comet might be the answer for me. The thing is, my ears don’t typically like IEMs (they don’t usually stay in very well) and the Andros seem to solve that problem for me. How are the Comets when worn up?

    Do you have a balanced version of the stock cable (non mic) I wonder how much the difference is from just going balanced vs SE has outside of the expensive cable

    IME, I find that it isn’t because of Balanced vs SE, rather it’s the DAP amp circuitry that is much better implemented on its balanced jack rather than its SE jack

    The point is that if your DAP has a balanced output, always use it and if yur DAP doesn’t have a balanced jack, use a SE to balanced adapter (the effect is that the two leads or rings share a common ground thus becoming single ended)

    Any recommendations for a SE to balanced adaptor or any will do?

    More listening to the Comets:

    This is my first time listening to a CA product so perhaps someone who more experience with the entire product line can chime in.

    The vocals are weird but in a good way. It's clear but feels hollow like shouting into a cave and having the sound reverberate back to you. It's extremely airy and emotional. I noticed it immediately when I first heard it and I'm liking it more as I listen to it. I feel like I'm floating when I'm listening to these IEMs.

    Yeah, when I heard them at CanJam I felt kind of the same. The Comets are very strong in terms of vocals - there's a certain smooth, natural clarity to them.

    The fit is ok. For some reason, I feel they are a bit too small. No discomfort. Simply I get a sense that they are a bit loose. But during my long commute using various public transportation in NYC, they did not come off. I enjoyed music all the way for my commute.

    For Andromedas?:) Too expensive not to treat those properly

    Comets. I don’t have an Andromeda, was never impressed too much with its sound. I couldn’t even remember how those sound.
  13. theveterans
    That’s interesting since I find Andromeda and Comet sound pretty similar with Andromeda being more transparent sounding and have much better bass and treble extensions

    Yes. I experienced Andromeda with very short time and every time I hear them I get back with no excitement, especially knowing they cost more than a hd800. More of a can guy.

    To me Andromeda is one of the best sounding iems on the market. Vega is different beast, heard other TOTL iems as well - Andromeda is a sweet spot IMHO.
    Still waiting for my COmets - would be very surprised if they sound similar. Had Orions before- mids are great, the rest is far behind
