Just got the Oriolus V2 - running it in with JVC spiral dots and linum bax cables now.

It surely is an addictive listen. 

Being powered by my Mojo at the moment. 

The bass is by far its most outstanding trait - buttery and liquid but not flabby with no bleeding into the mids. 

I think the biggest compliment i can give it is that it's sound signature sounds like my vintage Tannoy 15" speakers - of course the speakers have better spatial / sound staging cues, but the Oriolus are such a joy to listen to. (i've never been a sound stage freak so i can't really be bothered by it - certainly explains why i sold all my headphones and ended up with IEMS). 

Vocals are superb as well - fans of Ella Fitzgerald and the like will be digging these IEMs, no doubt. 

Nice..starting to get excited all over again! I too plan on using Spiral Dots and have a DP-X1.. Also may try it with my mojo! Cheers

Excellent presentation, the finish on the V2 is flawless and the case is awesome.. Wish it had a form fit foam inside for the IEM.. Took a quick listen with X5ii and Mojo and was extremely impressed. Will listen later with DP-X1 in balanced mode... Will take some time to gather thoughts and impressions of sound. The built quality is excellent though, on par with my Empire Ears Spartans! Maybe even better finishing..more specifically the bores are beautiful and no immediately visible seam on the backshell. With that said, I only gave it a quick view before I put them in. I have medium to smallish ears and they fit extremely well with an even better seal. They do stick out.. But it is very tolerable. Actually I was blown away with the comfort given they are a large iem. They fit better than my 535's, Velvets and EE Spartan's... Cheers

Are the Van Den Hul cables as un-wieldy as the ones on Dita Truth?

This combination undoubtedly must sound fantastic

 
Any idea:
- when that Dita Truth cable will be launched for retail?
- what it will cost?
 
Thanks in advance...

Clear and stood-out vocal, great imaging, satisfied sub-bass presence, airy smooth treble, easily become my new favourite!

Gentlemen, I am a new member and this is my first post.....I own a Oriolus2 in combination with a Opus1 DAP.

This is truly an awsome combination ....now I will have a look to an affordable balanced cable, around 250$.

Any thoughts....?

Best regards from Germany

I've renamed the thread, as Orilus Audio is a separate company.
