CanJam NYC is next month, 15-16 Feb, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. If you are able to attend (since your location is NYC) and delay your IEM purchase a few weeks, it's a great place to demo IEMs and learn.
Oh, I just placed an order for 64 Audio Tia Fourte, I hope that I got the right IEM. I mostly listen to Pop and Japan Female Vocals. Sometimes classical.

Hey y'all! I'm new but I've been lurking for awhile now. Just recently joined and have engaged in some trading but wanted to introduce myself. My name is Mark and I've been a music producer slash remixer since about 2004 (ish) and have also been doing the DJ thing since about 1996. I was classically trained via high school bands and private lessons and then onto college as a music education / performance major.

I've just recently come over to the audiophile side and really enjoy just sitting in my favorite chair and experiencing the music with great gear, allowing me to hear things in songs I've not previously heard. It's super addicting and I'm loving this hobby so far! It's very interesting to me since I already analyze and break apart the mixes of everything I hear anyways. It's true what they say, the songs sound brand new when you listen with the correct gear that brings out all the separation in the mixes and you hear things you've never heard before.

What sucks though, I'm starting to experience the side effects of playing loud venues without hearing protection for many years. I've got a nice little 6k notch in my left ear and it bugs the christ out of me so I've geared my purchases toward multi-BA IEM sets that help fill that void better than most other things I've listened to. Take care of your ears folks! You'll definitely regret it down the road if you don't, trust me. =)

So, that's me. I still get in the studio as often as I can before I lose my hearing altogether which is inevitable at this point but trying to get as much mileage out of my ears as i can.

Some of you I've met already and I've already learned quite a lot since my short time being a member here.

Hi all - New poster but long-time lurker. Been in the audiophile scene off and on for a few years now, so still learning.

Currently building up my headphone setup. I just got the Ether 2’s (I’m a sucker for a well-designed product) and I’m in the process of acquiring a DAC / amp. Trying to decide between a Chord Hugo 2 or just upgrading to the Chord Hugo TT 2. Would need to find a used one though to afford it.

Anyway, when my setup is complete I’ll be sure to post some pics as well as my impressions. Looking forward to being more involved in the community!

Hello,

My name is Mark. I recently purchased some TRN V90's on Aliexpress. I have owned 2 other pairs of other in ear headphones 1 being Nuforce and recently 1More. I found the website AudioBudget and decided to try out the TRN V90's based on the reviews and price. I have to say that for $30 the TRN V90's are really nice! I would like to purchase this cable TRN 16 Core Silver Plated 2.5 3.5MM Plug 0.75 0.78 2pin/mmcx Connector Hifi Upgrade Cable For TRN V90 V80 CCA C10 C16, but would like to find one with a 90 deg. 3.5mm plug AND Pre-formed 2pin-.75mm ends to bend around my ears like the stock cable that comes with the TRN's. Does anyone have a source for this cable or do I really need the heated formed cable? Do they tuck in fine around your ears? I found one cable with a 90 deg 3.5mm end 16 strand / 2 Pin .75mm without the pre-formed ear ends that I will most likely buy. Just wanted to confirm the fit.

Thanks for listening,

Mark

Thank you. I know there is still a lot more to learn. I will definitely go to CanJam next month, I still want to try different IEM, DAC and DAP. Now I am thinking of Lotoo PAW Gold Touch but I might start from something simple, like SR15.

Plenty of opportunity to demo DAPs from all the manufacturers. Definitely bring your Fourtes, and enjoy the weekend. You may want to review threads here on Head-Fi for any DAPs you're interested in, as well as looking for any reviews.

Hello all, new poster, long time lurker. I've been a 2 channel guy for a long time but lately am getting into the headfi stuff. Picked up a Schiit Asgard 3 with multibit DAC and a pair of Sennheiser 6xx. I've had some AT 50x for a while and I've always loved them. I need more digital sources though, mostly just using Qobuz, which is fine. Anyway, looking forward to posting more.
