Haha, not yet, i've told myself again that this one is the last and i need to stop for real now.
But deleting head-fi account is the only way i'm afraid, and i'm not ready to do this yet :)

I almost bought another but my goal or plan is to hold till about Nov ideally now... I have my eye on a newly released IEM (Tansio Mirai Spark) and curious to see feedback over the coming months and no doubt some good Black Friday deals.

Hi friends,
Does anyone have the IE800 to compare? Is it 100% worth to upgrade or is the IE900 more of a sidegrade? I am plenty happy with the IE800 with Apple's iPhone dongle so far and listening at 80% (sufficiently powered and loud). :) Of course I have a chord mojo when I feel I need a bit more..

Happy to hear any impressions :) I love the IE800 staging and bass depth & texture so really hyped for the IE900. Can someone help cure my upgraditis? :)

Thanks!

Welcome to the #ie900club ! Can't wait to hear some more impressions from you.

Neither stock cable nor stock tips worked for me as well.
But with Alo Silver Litz cable (modified, it will not work otherwise!) comfort has improved a lot, and after some tip rolling i'm using Ortofon tips, they allow for a semi shallow fit. Xelento tips are ok too, but then it gets very shallow and not secure enough in my ears.

I read somewhere that the Xelento cable fits. Did you try it?

All I'm gonna say is..
I'll keep Mest 2 for now, but both Clairvoyance and Oracle are going on sale. They are both amazing, but im not opening an iem museum, so..

IE900 is a big big big time keeper, what a quality👌🍻

I'm interested in exactly these 4 iems. Would be interesting to know why you chose the Mest 2 over the Clair and Oracle and a comparision between IE900 and Mest 2

Australia
Looks like Australian stock won’t arrive until August. Also, the dealer said there will only be a very limited amount of stock coming in. Strange. I wonder why it’s so delayed? I realise Australia is generally behind the rest of the world lol but it seems weird that it would take that long to arrive down here.

Any other Aussies on here that have any info?

I’ve cancelled my preorder. Don’t really want $2k AUD sitting with a dealer for 2 months doing nothing.
