ACS T Series custom earphones: worth the cash?
Previously on this forum I sought advice on a pair of closed back phones to listen to my iPod while travelling on the train (Apple Lossless files). This is the bulk of my listening time, although I sometimes have time in the evenings to listen to my Cyrus 8-based system.
Music-wise I'll listen to most things, apart from classical.
Following advice and my own research, I'd settled on Beyerdynamic T70ps. However, before taking the plunge I've started seeing excellent reviews of ACS custom earphones, and I could probably push the financial boat out (plus my birthday is coming up) and go for a pair of those.
But, is this is a complete waste of cash given that most of my listening is on the move? Background noise, etc.. Or would they isolate enough to make it worthwhile?
For the home listening I'll do, would closed backs always trump in ears at the same price level?
Obviously part of the problem is that I can't (as far as I know) go and demo a pair of ACS T1s.
Any thoughts / advice / other ideas are very welcome.
