On their way to Marv!
Any impressions @Thenewerguy009 and @Cspirou? Cheers all
Submitted request to be added on page 3. Possible to be put on the list before they leave SoCal?
The Comet was on the warm-ish side, it didn't pair quite well with my amplifiers.
The Atlas, was imo the best IEM I've heard. Though I never had a chance to audition any other $1k plus IEM, the most expensive ones I've had were the Sony MDR-EX1000, Dunu DN-2000J, Hifiman RE600 & the Campfire Andromeda (and probably a few others).
The Atlas definitely bested all of them. Closest being Andromeda. From my memory, the extension was better at both ends on the Atlas, I was hearing more detail & it wasn't too bright, less of a veil I would say. This is the first time I could actually feel sub-bass in a IEM as well. I also did not feel it was V-shaped, as vocals/mids were coming in through clear & loudly without the treble or bass overpowering them.
They also were able to be driven off a phone better than any other IEM as well, including the cheap Chinese ones I have.
It's definitely something I would buy if given the chance. I actually checked the classified & saw someone sold one just recently at a good price. I should have checked earlier.
@E_Schaaf i slipped in PTS after you.
Received from @E_Schaaf, will send to Soups in 5 days.
I liked the Atlas quite a lot. It's like a toned down Vega. If the bass of the Vega was too much, then Atlas is for you.
Didn't have much time, but will examine these IEMs more closely when the tour is over.
Sent out yesterday to @Soups with signature confirmation and insurance, I'm sure he'll let us know when they arrive. My impressions can be found here:
Received! Will ship to @Dash in 5 days.
Well, hopefully there is another opportunity to hear these, but I need to pass. We just left the doctors office and they scheduled the birth of our 2nd child five days from today. I don't think I will have the time.
Congrats @Dash! Yeah, I'd say you have some other priorities to focus on at this point.
Remember when I was at that point about 10 years ago. Crazily for us, our move from first to second child ended up being first to second AND third child. Oy...
Congratulations, Dash! Ok, looks like these are returning to @purr1n?
Yes, unless @purr1n says otherwise.
Back to @purr1n.
Edit: Impressions added here.
Is there any chance of still being able to hear the Atlas? I am super curious to compare to the Andromeda S.
Yes. Let me send it out to you. Might take a week. Super busy and you are #17 for who I need to get back to.
I intend to write a review of the Atlas. I like them.
Thanks @purr1n . No rush, I'm super grateful for the opportunity.
