The Shanlin and Audinst was a great match,I had a wonderfull time, listening to some of my favorite songs. It just plays it all, I was crying, laughing, dancing, I was chocked, terrified, in love all kind of things just flows through ones head, when immersed in music. I am normally an inearguy and q-JAYS is my workhorse, it has been so for about 7 years or so, it is good hearing protection at my work and they are small, duarble and very very fast. This was the only thing I can find that I miss a bit. Listening to ABC (Jackson Five) was not as fun and fast as I am used to, it is the dynamic drivers, they are to big and heavy and are not as fast and precise as an BA. So the downside is a downside I get from all dynamic drivers. They do bring more warmth and soul into the song than my q-JAYS, which counts high on my scale. It is a bit difficult, because normally we find the flaws and weak spots and target them, that is what most people want to know, the bad sides of a product, what could make theese wrong for me, as we all want to avoid buying stuff we do not love. We also have a different scale for our opinion, comfort is at least as important as the sound to me, some can listen to Grados, I can not, they are simply to painfull on my ears and I have owned both RS1 and RS2, I liked RS2 best, but the pain.... I do not give much for design that are for looks, I like designs that are made for comfort and easy use. In short I am a very pratical and down to earth guy, I have to listen to have an opinion on how things sound, in my younger years I did read all the technical stuff and went digging in graphs and whatever I could find. Not anymore. Experience has taugth me that, I simply has to listen and just listen. Maybe that is a part of becomming an old fart ?? What I am trying to tell, is that they just do not thread wrong anywhere, they eat the music and spits it out, just like they are supposed to do. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be the cable, it is a bit stiff and noisy, but it is not an issue, if it was I would just put an other cable on, I got lots of them and they are fairly cheap.. They are not made for running or active use, so the cable does not really bothers me. What really bothers me is that I just got this weekend with her, she should be in my museum, at some point it stops being a collection and becomes a museum.. But Monday I will ship her to the next person on our product-tour and it will be a tough goodbye. I also got a busy scedule, Verum 1 next week and then a set of Hyland-Headphones the week after that and I just know that if the Ollo is in the house, I will not give the others the headtime and attention they deserve. Saturday evening will be with my MYST from my laptop, maybe a short visit from Aune X1s. More later..
