  1. Barra
    Emil from Lime Ears has graciously provided me with some demos to listen through his CIEM lineup. Even better, at my request he is allowing me to share them with my US friends at Head-Fi so we all get to hear them. Yes it includes his AETHER which we have all heard great things about, as well as his dual and triple BA designs.  If you are interested, please speak up now as I am opening up for participants. The rules and requirements for becoming a member are listed below.

    US CIEM Demo Tour, Featuring:
    • LE2  (480€) – Dual armature design (Single Low, Single High)
    • LE3SW (625€) – Triple armature design (Single low, Single Midrange, Single High), with faceplate-mounted switch giving ability to instantly change sound signature between LE3 and LE3B.
    • AETHER (1150) – Flagship: Five armature driver design (Single sub, Dual low, Single mid, Single high)





    Tour Instructions (7 Day Audition)

    The participant list is organized logistically to minimize shipping costs starting from Seattle. The the tour will begin with the first in the list for a 7-day audition. Thereafter they will be responsible to deliver or ship the demo kit to the next participant in the list.
    • Upon Receipt:
      • Post: Please immediately post on the thread both receipt and condition of the demo kit.
      • PM: Please immediately PM the next participant on the list to arrange delivery (if local) or shipping. This step is critical to avoid delaying the tour. It is each participants responsibility to keep the tour moving. If the participant is unresponsive for all three days of your audition, it is your responsibility to move on to the next in the list so the tour does not get stalled. Please PM Barra with any issues.
    • Issues: Please PM Barra with any issues.
      • Dropping Out: Please PM Barra if you feel you cannot fullfil your tour responsibilites and I will pull you from the list.
    • Optional Review: Reviews are completely optional, but greatly appreciated by all Head-Fi members.
      • Thoughts/Impressions: Feel free to post your thoughts, initial impressions, pairing results, or even informal reviews or comparisons right here on this thread.
      • Formal Reviews: While you are welcome to post formal reviews on this thread, they are often more manageable if you use the Head-Fi review fuctionality and post a link here for people to follow.

    Tour Participant List

    We hope to gather our list over the next few weeks to build logistics into our tour order. However, the tour will be starting in Seattle first and may start before we close our participation requests. We may add more as it makes sense, but later logistics will be first come first serve so likely to make postage more expensive. The good news is that we will do our best to accommodate all US Head-Fiers that wish to participate.
