    Lots of low-fi pres coverage and endorsement from paid parties. Haven't seen anyone giving up their 12-way custom fit IEM's quite yet.

    Sounds a bit like an equaliser in the chain

    Yes, though if the claims are true, it is one based on a customised EQ to compensate for variations (deficiencies?) in an individual's hearing. I am fortunate that my hearing is standing up pretty well as I age, but I can see a system like this as allowing those with declining hearing to listen to music closer to how it was recorded.

    Yeah, do it!

    After my recent hearing issues following a virus illness I'm much more conscious of how I took my good hearing for granted before that.

    Would be interesting to see how good they are. Could be handy one day!

    they can be used wired too, although seem to used their own type connector typically... guess many folk dont really know how bad their hearing is

    An interesting read about the mechanism used to calibrate the headphones, they must be exceptionally good microphones to pick it up.
