Need recommendations on IEMs that don't cost as much as a 90's used car. Mostly for public transit commuting. Sep 17, 2017

        @Cryptowolf Thanks for the recommendation. I had the original Lyra, but could not stand the treble focus and overall upper mid to middle treble issues. Might try to listen to Lyra II at a local shop and see what has changed. My current IEMs are the Shure SE215, SE535, and Sennheiser Momentum IEMs, but they are all very bass heavy and liquidy warm. :(

        The ER4S is well worth looking at.

        If you're looking for extreme isolation, ER4-XR may be good. Put the Comply P-Series on it and you'll have the most isolating IEM I know of. More so than my CIEMs. The ER4-SR is better, but for commutes, this would probably work better.

      In years prior, looking at news simply made my inner voice say "meh". Now, there is internal screaming every time I read or watch the news.

        One problem is you can't trust reporters to be honest. (This is not a new problem, though it's gotten worse.) So you have to find and watch the whole original video yourself. And who has time for that?

      Canadian dollar dipped below 0.70 cents USD for the first time in 13 years.

        Haha, we haven't experienced a dip below 0.78 cents per US dollar since 2002, and in just 14 months we went from 0.95 to 0.69. Kind of insane to be honest.

      I have been informed by the overlords that I am not allowed to post a HEX review of a unit I purchased with my own hard earned cash.

      Hifiman ED-X (HEX): Smooth, rolled, warm, too relaxed and too polite. Pretty much like HEK without the weird soundstage and wiggling.

        This is the second best news I have heard thus far. I am shocked that low though. Do they know if this comes with the Sennheiser cable?

        All HD800S packages come with both single ended and balanced cables. What they didn't know is if the aluminum on the cable will be anodized black.

      Oh yeah, Schiit Modi Multibit incoming. Also AK4490 across the board for the D/S DACs. The preceding is speculation.

        2nd the Enigmas, I can still remember the wonderful feel of the ear cups sucking in my ears to create a perfect seal.

      Torpedo III with Cinemag transformers will cost nearly $700 USD. I'm not sure that's justifiable for me at that point.

        Its almost $200 more than I was expecting to pay, but I'll probably still pull the trigger

        If it's $200 more than you expect, get the Edcors instead of Cinemags. You'll save just about that much. It's not like the Edcors sound like shit or anything

        The money isn't an issue at all, its just a bit of a surprise that the price went up. Prior to this I was wondering about building an L2 with Lundahls before Doug told me to wait for the new Torpedo.
