I agree I like the Dignis case the best. I love the Black leather and the Brown leather cases. Tks.
that's what the a18t is for.
This is how I see it as well. With (good) iems it feels as though the music is being piped directly into your brain. You can hear all the detail and the spatial cues, and it makes you feel as though you are floating in a sea of pure sound. Headphones and speakers just can’t approach this.
Also, customs are better than universals in this respect. Which makes me want my A18ts to hurry up and get here...
I realize this is a 64 Audio thread, but if you are truely looking fir a new IEM for yourself, do not limit yourself to 64 Audio. They are excellent, but you should try others for comparison. Tks.
Agreed, some universals approximate (and imo, outperform) headphones - namely the Noir. Has that same "speaker-like" sound, but with the added detail of an IEM
Also on a side note, if you ask this same question on Facebook or Reddit or whatever, a bunch of headphone people with a superiority complex will start screaming how a 500$ headphone outperforms TOTL IEMs, so I suggest you don't
PS: I see someone else had the same remark. Sorry, didn't mean to be redundant.
Crazy question...the Fourte is my all-time favorite IEM, I got rid of them because I didn't like the fit. Does anyone know of a CIEM with a very similar sound signature as the Fourte?
I have the Fourte and bought some custom tips from The Custom Art, works great!
I have Fourte too. Enjoying them immensely with JVC Spiral Dots M. Small rubber bands insure the tips are sticking out a little bit.
I used sone Symbio tips but removed the foam. They fit much better and I like the signature with the Fourte. They are the best sounding iem’s I’ve heard.
Interesting question. I would suggest going the custom route so that you take the fit out of the equation. As for which one, while I own the Fourte and chose it over the U18, having now experienced a number of IEM’s from many manufacturers I consider the QDC Anole VX one of the top IEM’s made. Get it in custom form. If you want to stay with 64Audio, the A18T might do it for you. The A18 is the custom version and it will have the same expansive soundstage, treble and should match the bass or surpass it in custom form. I do not own this, I am saying this based on the universal and realizing that the custom version will sound better and have more bass. Obviously it is a very different IEM, but I did like it allot at my last comparison.
I also just read a post by MVVRAZ where he compiled a detailed list of the IEM’s he likes, but also provided a sound description. His list might be able to help you. Try contacting him directly as a private message. He might also read this. Good luck.
today my cable went to left ear only on way in as i was listening to my U18T which are freshly back from a service.
feeling very sad about this i was happy to recall that i had the stock cable at work so the trip home would not be a loss. also new spiraldot ++ had arrived (they are very nice).
i am however not a fan of the stock cable. at least i wasn't when i bought Trio's and listened to it then.
so i wasn't thinking that the cable would be good. in fact i expected it to be very bad. as i recall all the sound happened in one place centred an inch either side of one's "third eye".
however although a stock cable this one was not from the Trio. i have squandered a small fortune on 2nd hand examples of u18t and fourte, so it is one of those.
anyway it was pretty great i thought. wide soundstage. some depth. great articulation. nice tone. i usually listen to pw 1950s or silverfi r4. of course i wasn't A/B testing or anything. but given the ergonomics of the stock cable (excellent), the sound was good enough to make it seem like a viable proposition to me (although i'm clearly prejudiced by my mono ordeal this morning).
I’ve had to send my u12ts back for cable cut-offs on both sides now. Kind of a hassle, but I love ‘em...
My Fourte are hopefully on their way back to 64 as I write this: the socket on one side was loose causing cut-outs. Hopefully both sides come back more resilient!!
Using some U18t in the meantime. Not sure whether to keep both, or sell one once they’re back repaired. It’s kind of useful having a backup but I kind of miss the bass of the Fourte.
Following our recent discussion of cable materials and whatnot, I have written up a small review of the Plussound Poetic series, and covered the synergies with some of 64's IEMs
Happy listening folks!
