It is in addition to the regular cable.
$30 for an extra 2.5mm TRRS cable...here is a 95% sample. We'll have and send out TRRS 100% samples on 10/20.
I've been looking for a 2.5mm stereo balanced female TRRS to 3.5mm stereo balanced male TRRS adaptor to use Massdrop Plus with GO2A. I haven't had any luck so far. Anyone know of one?
I went in on the TRRS cable but will eventually need adapters Sony's Pentaconn and 4-pin XLR.
@CEE TEE What XLR adapter is pictured in the K10 drop? Any plans for an adapter drop?
So, MassDrop plus is awesome. I think this is the IEM to aspire to for most.
The nuforce is not awesome, even for the price. I'd say skip it, save for the plus. The nuforce is comically bad.
Working on it...a bit slower than the big stuff.
This one is a bit cheaper than the Norne. Better double check on the wiring, but I'm pretty sure it's "AK to HFM/GO".

I removed the bracket at the end which caused the page to go to a "404 Not found" page.
Here's a different link for the same thing.
Any comment on the synergy between these IEMs and the Massdrop CTH amp paired with Gumby? Thanks.
I love greek tortoises as much as the next herp fan.
but, anyone with a math degree besides myself want to calculate the probability of a human with:
a) access to an unreleased IEM
b) access to an unreleased amp
c) a standard Gumby
d) defining and evaluating the vague term of synergy, which ends up being valued differently for personal ears after magical bonding
e) the length of time required to make such recommendations beyond initial listening session length at RMAF or an imaginary combinatorial loaner program?
cmon man. we want to help. but maybe wait to ask until all 3 out of the 3 products are actually shipping.
There's at least 1 supreme overlord/deity here with that config, but I'd suspect that CTH won't play well with the IEMs given the OI pairing.
Hmm, CTH OI < 0.5 ohm, so more similar to Magni 3 resulting in Ety SR + bass.
So not quite UERM mids + HD650 treble. I was also planning to pair the Massdrop Plus with GOv2, which has OI = 0.47. I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed as I love my UERM >> my Ety 4P.
I'm considering ordering these. While on the go, I do enjoy my Etymotic ER-4S (technically 4P, but I have the "S" adapter) and have been using them for a number of years now, but would appreciate the extra low-end that these promise. The following is listed in the specs.:
Noise isolation: -26 dB of ambient stage noise
I believe that this refers to how much the listener is isolated from the environment. However, I'm curious to know how well these contain the sound (not leak). I'll primarily be using these on the train while commuting (and traveling, I suppose), and I prefer to be considerate to others around me. So, I'd like to know if these will seem "loud" (or even audible at all) to others nearby (compared to something like the Ety's, which I believe are rather quiet). I probably won't be listening at very high volumes, at least not too often, but wanted to check with those who've been lucky enough to try these already.
Nobody will be able to hear what you're listening to.
These arent apple earbuds. They seal in your ear and unless you really crank the volume (at which point you'd probably pop that eardrum), nobody is going to be able to hear anything (although if you did crank it, they wouldnt hear the music, just you screaming in pain)
Perfect. Thank you both.
BTW, I do realize that these aren't Apple earbuds. I suppose that the "vented bass drivers" in the description had me curious if these leaked more than what I'm accustomed to.
The bass drivers are vented into the sealed shell. Since the shell is sealed, you won’t have any sound leakage.
