  • Ano marerecommend niyo na USB Soundcard?
    gagana ba sa usb otg yan?

    instead na bumili ng fiio x1 mas portable at cheap alternative to kung possbile
  • @roseneil

    Is this for a cellphone kaya need mo ay may usb otg function? Mostly naman decent na ung dac and amp section ng mga latest cellphones to drive iems/cans..

    I used to bring an external dac din, pero bulky eh medyo hindi praktikal para sakin. YMMV though.

    I used a hifimediy usb sabre dac, pero di sya nagana agad you need an app pa from play store to utilize it, di ko alam if more recent phones are plug and play na.

    If you ask me, X1 is a good choice. Less hassle yun, and baka mas mura pa ang x1 compared to usb soundcards. Ang naiisip ko lang ay dragonfly dac usb ang meron locally.

    @dyaems

    Tinignan ko sa amazon presyong brand new pala ung mdr na yun. Haha.
  • Thanks

    yes for cp siya
    so mas okay kung magstick nalang ako sa fiio x1?
    plano ko rin kasi bumili ng headphone price range ng 6k along with fiio x1
  • Contacted both Digits Trading (Distributor) and Westone USA


    Sabi ni Distro ibigay ko daw kay Digital Walker para ipasa sa kanila tapos sila na mag check tapos mag decide kung ano gagawin, si Westone mukhang gusto ipabalik na agad sa kanila to US (150$ shipping, urgh)
  • ^kung ipapadala ng distro yan sa Westone ikaw din naman magbabayad ng shipping fee.
    IMO mas OK na idiretso mo na sa Westone.
  • (150$ shipping, urgh)


    OMG
  • actually $100 replacement fee, $50 shipping :)

    nakipagusap nako sa westone US ilang beses na hehe

    EDIT: reshell na lang yan sa flipears :D

  • Ouch. Ang mahal pala magpaayos ng IEMs directly kay Westone!

    If I were you bro, mukhang okay na alternative yung reshell, assuming na ayos pa yung driver/s.

    Just checked FlipEars' FB page, mura lang pala pa-reshell sa kanila. And very affordable yung triple driver CIEM nila!

    Dyemit..parang natetetempt ako magpareshell ah. Hahaha :)
  • ^

    sirain (not literally!) mo muna yung um3x mo bago ka magpareshell, mag iiba tunog nyan sigurado ako pag nareshell na.
  • @Dyaems

    Hahaha :) Yep, read a couple of negative feedback at Head-fi re: changing SQ after reshelling a universal IEM.

    Hence, I'll wait for my 13th month and then (perhaps) take the CIEM plunge with FlipEars. Really can't believe that finally we have a local CIEM manufacturer. And they also do ear impressions that's cheaper than Manila Hearing Aid!

    I've always wanted to try CIEMs for the higher noise cancellation rating, as well as better comfort (my ears just can't stand long listen times with silicone tips!). But the cost of getting them overseas, not to mention the hassle of having to resend them should there be fit problems, has prevented me from doing so.

    Does anyone here own a FlipEar CIEM? If so, how's the SQ? :)
  • ^

    ayaw ko mag ciem kelangan ko yung external noise pag nagko-commute. mahirap na madisgrasya haha
    saka pag may kumakausap sakin di ko naiintindihan siyempre, unless magaral ako magbasa ng labi parang yung sa mga deaf? haha

    wala pa ata nakakapagtry nyan dito, parang nung nabasa ko few pages ago puro sila skeptical hehe..

    mag CIEM lang ako siguro kung wala talagang nagfi-fit na iem sa tenga ko dahil magkaiba size ng butas ng tenga ko, kaso meron nag fit eh... hehehe
  • Meron na naglakas loob na headp** member sa flipears, antay ko lang din ung impressions nya. It seems interesting din for the price.

    Nakakatakot naman pala warranty ng westone medyo mahirap kausap ung reseller dito. :/
  • ^
    I hope maging successful ang FlipEars and sana yung triple-BA FlipEars Pro Monitors nila sound way way above its selling price.

    Mas kampante mag-invest sa CIEM kung may local fabricator na trustworthy at maganda ang service. If masira or magbago ang tunog, just bring it to their shop for repairs and re-tuning :-)

    In addition to re-shelling sana mag offer din si FlipEars ng recabling service hehe :-)
  • Buti na lang pala hindi ko tinuloy yung Westone W30/W40 sa Japan. Hirap na kapag nasira. Hehehe

    I agree re FlipEars. Hopefully maging successful yung business. Huwag lang silang magtaas masyado ng presyo. Hehehe
  • @ronnel0918

    mag “I Volunteer as Tribute” ka na kasi para maging
    successful yung business nila :D
  • so i ordered these on amazon for my M50...

    External Image


    and.....

    External Image


    so why aren't these sold here? or is it but i'm just not aware? velour pads make the M50 100% more comfy now. i feel i can wear them for hours now. with the pleather pads my ears would sweat for just a few minutes. i also strectched the headband a bit to lessen the clamping force.
  • Peeps,

    Spoke with FlipEars via mobile a few minutes ago. Good thing their office is in Las Pinas and is just one jeepney ride away from our house! :-)

    According to them, the CIEMs, especially the multiple driver models, can be tuned according to your needs. It will be up to you how you want your CIEMs to sound like. If you want a copy of, say, a Westone, Ultimate Ears, or JH Audio CIEM, it can be done.

    Right now, turnaround time for a CIEM has stretched to at least three weeks. Dami raw nila orders ngayon.

    By June, they'll be releasing additional models with more driver brands and types to choose from. Currently, if you want a quad driver CIEM they can accommodate that request (they had one order for such daw) and it'll cost Php20k. Not bad, noh?

    The base material for the CIEM would be hard acrylic but they can make one from wood for no additional fee.

    They've done a demo unit for a reviewer (didn't catch that person's name, though). By June daw yung delivery, so expect a review in the coming weeks.

    I'll start saving na for a pair! :-)
  • Made in the Philippines, sold in the US, bought overseas.


    Nabigay ko na sa Digital Walker yung Westone UM Pro 30 ko, within 1 week tawag daw ako for an update regarding kung ano gagawin.

    Nag-taka pa sila kung pano ko daw nalaman yung number ng RMA nila, pero buti tinanggap naman kahit papaano.



    This week will test my faith in Philippine electronics retail yet again.

    (Oh crap I just realized I didn't cover my ass and forgot to take a picture that it was in good physical condition externally before leaving the store)


    IF they can't RMA it and shipping to Westone would prove more expensive, I think ipapa re-shell ko sa Flipears (assuming buo pa yung both drivers)

  • ^ That's good news! Taga-Las Piñas din ako so okay ito.

    Balitaan mo na lang kami. :D
  • Buti na lang pala hindi ko tinuloy yung Westone W30/W40 sa Japan. Hirap na kapag nasira. Hehehe


    Well a single event doesn't make a trend, unless there's a rash of reports saying a particular IEM is dying more often than usual.

    I've had my Westone 4 since 2011 and it's second-hand. It's still perfectly fine today, though I rarely use it.
  • I wear mine for more than 7 hours a day, use is probably around 5 hours only (too lazy to remove) I didn't use it for a day due to things to do outside the house, the next day I used it, it died on me.


    A little over a year old.
  • Guys sensya na tamad na mag search dumating na yung modi 2 ko para saan yung E(expert)? Or doon na lang ako sa S? Anyway mamaya ko pa itratry thanks! Set up ko pala magni2 + modi2 and fidelio x2....
