Claimed acoustic benefits; specific sound quality claims, specific sound quality benefit claims, that is what I mean.
 
Thanks again for not claiming specific sound quality claims and benefits on this thread.

 
OK.

I use high gain on all.. just less spinning for volume and no SQ differences for me.



I have heard talk that using high gain, especially for sensitive IEMs, can be detrimental and decrease the average lifespan of the iem. Any thoughts/ experience on this??



Also, I do find myself hearing minute differences between gain levels, mainly the bass getting a bit tighter and the highs getting more energetic. Any thoughts on that as well?

Is that with higher gain levels that the bass gets tighter?  I'm thinking I noticed that, but wasn't sure it wasn't due to volume adjustment or Fletcher-Munson perseptions.

Yea with higher gain levels the bass gets tighter. I think of it as a upwards slope in terms of EQ. A tilt towards the treble. Which is also why I try not to use high gain, as the treble can get distracting for something like rock.

I suppose it varries with IEMs.  I kinda liked hi with my Angies, as their treble is extended but not shreaky.  It's hard to know sometimes.

Has anyone seen or heard anything about Bruce Ball recently? I know he had some health issues, just wondering if he was ok, sorry for the derail

He is doing well, he watches the threads quite a bit. We're basically getting ready for shows like Canjam and Axpona next month so we're pretty deep in show season.

I just got my new QP1R, and I have a question.
 
Has anyone figured out a good way to block the Line Out port? (I'm worried that I'll plug headphones in by accident, which would be a disaster. I bought these plastic plugs, but they deactivate the headphone port when inserted.)

Cut it shorter? Though i am not really sure if that gonna works. If you are going to try that, make sure don't push in too much that might end up stuck.
