I was looking into buying some IEM headphones here but none of these provide Bluetooth connecting cables for replacement.
I am a fan of wired headphones because I am an old-fashioned guy but sometimes I feel like my gym workout would be easier if I wasn't confined to my wired connection.
I've found some replacement Bluetooth wires for MMCX on Amazon with mixed reviews and the 2-pin connectors had different measurements and wasn't sure whether they would work.
Does anyone have any experience with Bluetooth connecting replacement cables and if so:
Which pair of headphones/connectors do you use?
Which replacement cables you got?
Is it worth getting?
Any advise on 2 pin/MMCX/other compatibility?
An incredible challenge posted by Audeze official - will Dan, Sennheiser and Focal step up?
This is real. This isn't a hoax. Attached is a screenshot from the Audeze LCDi4's Amazon page. Transcribed below:
Buyer Question: How much do these headphones cost to manufacture? I'm curious what the markup is
Audeze's Response: No problem - just ask Sennheiser, Focal, HiFI Man, Beyer, and Mr. Speakers what their BOM costs are and send it to Audeze, and we'll post our information.
(Note from me - BOM = bill of materials)
You can see by the SELLER label this is the actual reply from Audeze official.
Audeze has since deleted the comment, but I was amazed to see someone both bold enough to ask this question, and Audeze being bold enough to reply. I screenshotted the comment not realizing they later deleted the reply, immortalizing it forever.
I think Dan of Mr. Speakers lurks Massdrop, and maybe others do too. What do you say? Can we get sign-offs from the major players to agree to post their production costs? Audeze has issued this incredible challenge, who will step up?
