Your review or the 4001. The answer is both, great review BTW. I think I agree with basically everything you wrote:

Quote: "At the end of this review, if you're looking for a high-end IEM, with good build quality, comfort, ergonomics, a soft, mellow, yet quick sound, with a slightly intimate stage, and which comes with both a modular cable and spinfit cables, you should totally consider DK-4001 as your next IEM purchase."

You mention that for you it has an intimate stage, does this refer to its excellent imaging because for me I'm hearing an effect similar to having a set of speakers close to my listening position, it's an effect I do enjoy, I get the same kind of enjoyment with the 4001 as I do with the Sennheiser HD-650

Quote: "DK-4001 offers mediocre isolation from the outside noise, since it has quite a few ventilation ports, but it offers one of the best comforts I have had with a IEM, making me desire to wear it more and to use it more."

I notice that too, this IEM won't really work well in noisy environments, but perhaps its the openness to the outside world that gives the 4001 its excellent imaging and sound-stage.

I'm driving mine from a N6ii with E01 which is a very nice pairing.

Anyway thanks for taking the time to write the review, I don't own the Hulk cable just the stock cable but it sounds interesting too.
I'm really happy to help everyone interested in them! :)

Yes I can get these voltages for you. I'll have these for you tomorrow morning. Getting into bed right now....
I'm hoping that both of your tubes have the same Voltages on Pins 2 & 4 - and that I can adjust my tubes to those voltages. :ksc75smile:

I use the Origin cable on my Hylas, great cable, and for $50 it's even better.
I just canceled my order. I was reading the comments on Drop and people were saying the cable has all sorts of QC issues. They were talking about sending the cables back 2 - 3 times to get it fixed and having to pay shipping to China.

Hmmmm, but you've had good luck with yours. Hard decision now.

I have had luck, but I also didn't get it from Drop. And, I had QC issues with 2 of the 3 Vogue series cables on the tour I was a part of. I might not have even bought the Origin cable after that experience. Maybe I have the exception not the rule with the Origin cable I have?

EDIT: Damn, I just read the Discussions over there. It would appear I am one lucky SOB, lol.

I'm going to skip this one. To bad. It looks like a nice cable.

Thanks!
.
With a bit more searching, I found another discussion about the B4-X, over on the diyAudio Forums.
One of the posters indicated that he measured these voltages:
Board Pin 2 = Tube Pin 7 = g2 (Screen Grid) = 6.08V
Board Pin 4 = Tube Pin 5 = a (Anode) = 6.50V

Awesome brother. It's one of those songs that gets you and pulls you in.

What audio player are you using?
