i don't think that bluetooth would be good for something like the H8, but for a Music One for a daily commute, wireless would be awesome combined with the comfort of cIEM.
 
Battery on the earin is really short, but they are also quite a bit smaller than a cIEM, so it should be possible to simply have a larger battery in a cIEM.

Yep.. this is why I've sent my H8P back to Piotr to have it changed to the H8 non-pro.  The H8P has a unique combination of a warmth and brightness.  The Pro really does offer some terrific resolution through the treble.. but it's best served with well mastered recordings.  I mean, it absolutely glows with great recordings.. but the flip side is that, IME, the peaks, while fairly narrow, are prominent enough that poorer quality recordings will get served up fairly ruthlessly.  The brightness can be tamed to a certain extent with an amp with slightly higher output impedance (perhaps something around 10 ohms could be the sweet spot?).. but all my gear is quite low in OI and my ears prefer phones that fall on the warm side of neutral these days.

I still think the H8P is terrific.. but there should be careful consideration of what's going to be upstream (DACs, amps, etc.) and downstream (recording/mastering quality of music) as well as your own tuning preferences.  I'm looking forward to the H8 non-pro.. I doubt it'll lack detail in the treble region.. it probably just won't be as prominent.

:beerchug:  

Hello FlySweep

Did you get your Harmony set back ?

I would love to have your views on the transition between 8 Pro and 8 :-D

i always point those who want to pay 400-500$ on a LQ IEM to buy the Music One, so many ignorant go with IE80 and SE535 even when i tell them about Music One :<  but few others who clearly got brain went to Peter and bought Music one or better options.


some of the people i've sent here went with UE CIEM -.-'' how sad....

I'm sure that Piotrus makes some really nice CIEMs with awesome bang for buck, but you need to realise that this childish behaviour of praising something to the high heaven through the means of bashing some other alternatives is not in any way helping the company in the question. How about showing your appreciation in another way so that people would take you a bit more seriously?
hey man sorry if i have offended you in a way, i don't recall saying UE sucks, from the post you can see i am talking about "Value" so before you call others ignorant and trolls maybe try to understand first? Head-fi isn't a place for these kind of words...  

and yes some people that i told them not to worry about the H8P or Peter work they told me UE is a brand and it does make better quality than peter who just started and got no name,  i don't know what to call these people anything but brainless who goes for brands
Oh, then go ahead and explain to me why you just called people who went with the other choices "ignorant"? Maybe try to understand first?:rolleyes:
And indirectly insulting people for not having brains is not nice either:rolleyes:

Sorry for the OT, please carry on with the discussion.

Has anyone had experience remolding their cIEM with Custom Art?
 
Also, anyone in the US have to deal with customs when purchasing from Custom Art or anywhere?

Remolding? Peter is the remold master. I am extremely happy with my SE5way remold and I can't recommend him enough. I also know he did many other SE5way remolds and other ciems too.

Peter remold master...haha...but this is actually true.

Peter was doing remolds of acrylic to sillicone CIEMs. In collaboration with Lime Ears he was doing acrylic to acrylic remolds as well.

Yup SE5way was silicone and now it still is.
 
I am sure he can do it, just shoot him an email or something, he can do anything you want as my friend stated, he can also retune your monitors too.

I'd give him a couple more years of work on his people retuning, suspect he's got a few down so far - making a man squeak more etc...

Go for the shot filled ear plugs and just get rid of everyone!
