Do you think listening to music from my phone with the a18s would be an issue? I read some reviews saying it doesn’t down scale very well compared to the a12t.

A18s sounds fine from my iPhone.

Not sure why there are past complaints about the original Fourte like incoherent sound, funny stage and wonky tonality... I just had it for a few days and even though it has been almost 4 years since it was initially released, it still sounded great to me. It is very musical and vocals have accurate tones true to real voices. Technicalities are at high level as well. Am I missing something?
It is still a quality IEM. However most feel its vocals can get sibilant. Female vocals. Still a TOTL though. It is also pretty revealing of different cables if you ever need an IEM for those comparisons. I felt it got new life when I paired it with the AzlaSednaLight Short tips.

I'm on the same page.
Fourte is one of the greatest iem from 64audio.
It's more revealing than most of bad recordings, that's all.

Thank you for confirming Frankie. I think I’m going to keep it. I didn’t find female vocal sibilant in general. I agree with Sednalight Short sounded very good among the tips I tried. Thanks.

If it's already got ~50h on it probably not. No harm in running it for a day or two to eliminate any burn in doubt though. Pls share your impressions here along with music choices when you get them.

The wonky incoherency people ment was about some notes being to quiet or fainted away. To really experience this you need to eventually also find that passage and pinpoint it. Once you have found it then use another iem and replay the same passage and tou will realise that on the other iem it sounds louder and that note is more elevated and present the. On oj fourte...

This is some sound effect I guess It might be the way the sound is produced by the tia mids as thats where the issue seemed to happen.

I know exactly what that is and I can 100% confirm tia noir dont exibit of that issue.

Its nothing major but it is fourte oj personality hehe so like it!

Thanks for comments Tiger.

So far I didn’t find anything wonky at all on Fourte yet. In fact its sound is so natural and is a good all rounder as well.

How would you compare Fourte to Odin?

Geez, that’s a tough question :sweat_smile::disappointed_relieved:

They’re so different and I think I’m not ready to compare them :smiley:

I would just say they are for different enjoyment - Odin is for fun sound but not so accurate and Fourte is for serious listening with natural sounds. I think Fourte is more audiophile sound but I enjoyed both as both are unique.

Interesting, most consider the Odin a 'reference' IEM and the Fourte a 'fun' IEM and you have that swapped around. Funny how people hear and describe the same IEMs so differently.

Yeah that’s how I hear them, not sure about others. I guess different ears different brains haha

edit: Fourte not just serious listening but fun as well. I don’t consider Odin reference but that’s just my opinion.
