Whether people know you or not, do you really think your opinion could hurt someone's business?Personally. I prefer blunt and brutal honesty over censorship any day, even if I happen to disagree with the opinion.

No coverage of ModWright, Daedalus, Odyssey, Endeavor, Purity. wtf? Hard to award best of show when you miss some of the finest rooms.
Wow, insta-bullshit from a lot of people. NoAudiophile remember this: tell what you hear, the way you want to say it. I have been told 'this is someones livelihood blah blah blah' so many times I've lost count. I was in a position a few years ago where I gave an AC vendor a VERY bad review. I was approached 5-6 times at the show by the fanboys of that vendor asking me to either pad my review or remove it entirely. I refused of course. The next day the vendor contacted us and told us that they were so happy that we came in and gave our honest opinion because it prompted the vendor to investigate what the problem might be. They found several issues and fixed most of them and asked us to come back and listen a second time. Low and behold the system sounded 10X better! These people telling to 'play nice' think they're protecting the livelihood of those at the show but they're being very short sighted. Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy. If anyone says otherwise tell them to go to hell.
Figure you guys would get a kick out my show coverage, let me know if you have any questions or if you see that I got something wrong.Day 1 Coverage: http://noaudiophile.com/RMAF_2015_Day_1/Day 2 Coverage: http://noaudiophile.com/RMAF_2015_Day_2/Day 3 Coverage: http://noaudiophile.com/RMAF_2015_Day_3/Best of Show in the Budget category: ELAC SystemBest of Show in the Floor stander category: Von Schwikert VR55sBest of Show in the WTF that's a big speaker category: Vapor Perfect Storm White
Well, why waste the space to piss people off. When I read my Etymotics are "subpar crap", it made it that much harder to take your impressions of the Alclairs seriously (they may or may not be great- not perfect to be sure, but I like mine and think that whether they are your cup of tea or not, they aren't "crap.")I think the hubby in general could benefit by keeping things in perspective. At Capital audio fest, Audio Note had a visiting cello player named Vincent Belanger. (highly recommend any cello fans look into him.) He played live there in the room. 10 seconds of live music was enough to ruin the claims of any of the vendors selling six-figure audio systems purporting to provide just-like-live realism.By the way, do you know that one company (Knowles) makes the BA elements that are used in virtually every BA IEM on the market, from the $1K 8-driver jobs down to the $79 Apple In-Ear (not the el cheapos, the other ones?) Just a thought for people to consider before the drop four figures on IEMs.All of that said, I appreciate the heads up on the Alclairs; I do happen to be looking for something a little more ergonomic than the Etys; I frequently listen to iEM's lying in bed on my side, and the long form factor of the Ety's don't work very well for this. I have been coveting a pair of Shure 535's but they are twice as much as the Alclairs and appear to also have been designed with a low profile in mind. So thanks for the tip. But don't be surprised when you write three pages of reviews and people take them seriously. Many people assume but if you didn't mean seriously, you wouldn't of made all that effort.
And no offense Scott, but this comment is a bit self serving don't you think?^^^^ perfect example of what I just said.
I assume this was directed at me? I'm sorry to have upset you but I think my opinion is still pretty well founded. Remember, I own Etymotics too, so I know exactly how good they are. Much better than the mass market stuff, for sure. But the fact is they are simply not as good as the custom fit IEM's like Sensaphonics or JH Audio. I got spoiled by the sound quality of the custom fit stuff but then had consistent problems with the seal, so eventually had to step back down to the Ety's. So you can see why I was upset. The Curve IEM's from Alclair bridge the quality gap to a large degree so I'm really happy I found them.See, I can use nice language too
It's nice to tell it like it is, but some comments were rude imo.
