    Those of you that have tried the SRM-323S and the SRM-353X, what similarities and differences do you notice between them.

    And if you've tried either of the above and the SRM-D10, what similarities and differences do you hear.

    Thanks.

    I did CCS mod today, and it sounds great with 007.
    I prefer it to 727A (global feedback mod).

    Thank you very much for your help, JimL11.

    At the e-earphone PortaFest in Akihabara this past weekend, I had a chance to listen to the CES-A1 kit for the SR-003MK2 & SRS-002. The tips used to be all soft but now it's mixed with some portion stiffer and other portions more flexible. It's quite a bulky structure as you can see from the pix and it sticks out quite a bit from the ear. Naturally as one would guess, it's not fully isolating despite not having any ported vents - it just clips on to the earspeaker :-

    they can certainly be cumbersome, but even the Audeze Isine do not go unnoticed.

    AnakChan,

    Was the CES-A1 more comfortable?

    How did they sound?

    If its not yours than why even bring it up? :p

    The Sigma Normal sucks. Not even worth it. Only as a collection

    The Sigma Pro is one of the greatest ear-speaker ever. Clearly one of the best sound to date.

    Now STAXs needs a revision!

    Hello Stax,

    Please release a Sigma X . A modern version of the Sigma series is needed.

    Thanks'

    Glad you like it. I share your feelings vis-a-vis the feedback modded 727.

    Sigma X? Sounds like a Stax/Massdrop collaborative effort!

    Err.....I'd buy that, actually........

    Personally I didn’t really get into the SR-003 or SRS-002 sonically anyway, so to me it didn’t make much of an impact to me. It was just an enclosure that snapped on...thre was no dampening, etc. The tips OTOH to me were more comfortable whereas the before it would just “hang off” the ears.

    Guess what is behind this little Blue Led that I have installed under my BHSE :yum:?

    Who heard about "Schumann Wave" generators ? :robot:

    "Schuman Wave (7.83 Hz) can reduce the interference of radio and electromagnetic waves, which can reduce music details, improve sound field width, and reduce standing wave impact. Additionally, Schumann wave can make people relaxed and listen more sound details. It will have effective positive impact on sleep quality, thinking and creation after long-time using"

    Very promising.... while I agree it may seems strange. Anyway, at 20$ from China, I decided to give it a try.... we will see...

    And if I am not convinced I can still offer it as a fun-gift to an audiophile friend :face_palm:

    Skeptoid website comment on Schumann waves here:

    In brief, B.S.

    And incidentally, an electromagnetic wave of 7.83 Hz has a wavelength of 38,000 km. Even if that gadget actually generates an electrical signal of that frequency, the transmitting efficiency of an antenna that you can squeeze under a BHSE is minuscule. You can probably generate a stronger signal by sitting and raising your heel off the ground on your toes until your leg starts to shake.

    I can since I've already read this post in two other topics. Always interested to see what is new in your system, but please stop cross-posting.

    I have to ask how much hotter does a KGSShv / Carbon make your room compared to a Staxen amplifier? I have issues with my space running hot with all the electronics (Computer, monitors, audio interface, 353X, RME, etc....)
