    I can't help myself but I really love how that composition/picture turned out, so I cannot resist and must post it here. [​IMG]

    Yep, all is legal and what one is actually seeing are old, polished blank ammo shell casings and wheat flour to create that "Breaking Bad theme" atmosphere.

    Unfortunately I don't have any blue crystals or blue stuff around (except for IEMs and headphones), else I'd have made a second composition (that Breaking Bad idea just came into my mind when I imported the pics and already made two edits (one regular and one with vignette), before that it was just planned as a "boring" composition of an "audio rig with pretended drugs and blank ammo shell casings" as seen in the "making of" spoiler). [​IMG]
    I've also got a few more compositions, especially made for @masterpfa in the Finder X1 thread. [​IMG]

    "Gotta Catch 'Em All":
    "These go to 11":
    Many thanks! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I love these things.

    What component of sound do you guys think will affect whether it is the top sound
  13. HiFiChris Contributor
    I cannot deny at all that I thoroughly love the Fidue A83 (actually its OEM version for UPQ, the Q-music QE80), and totally see why others love it as well. During my critical listening phase, it even happened quite often that I was just sucked into the music and totally forgot to take notes or compare it.

    Though it is not the technically best compared to the DN-2000J and FLC8s, I personally find it the overall most harmonious and a heck of fun.
    FLC8s: extreme versatility, excellent midrange, bass speed and separation
    DN-2000J: the most "magical" with fast yet tactile bass and a really good soundstage
    PRIMACY: the smoothest and most easygoing, with a quick bass response
    A83/QE80: extremely enjoyable, v-shaped with bright yet very even treble

    personally i go for mid range only so flc8s hehe
  15. HiFiChris Contributor
    Yep, I was very surprised that the FLC8s is even very slightly more detailed in the mids than my UERM - it's the first time for me a cheaper IEM has surpassed the UE's midrange resolution. Treble and bass refinement definitely go to the UE though.
