I''d forget about the Yamaha EPH-100. They're not what comes to mind when I'm looking for sub bass.
I think you may be a little unclear as to the difference between DACs and amps. A DAC accepts a digital signal and converts the 1s and 0s that digital music is comprised of into a form that you hear. An amp accepts an analogue signal and amplifies it to the point that you can hear it on your headphones. Your iPod and Macbook already have built in DACs and amps, what you're trying to do here is replace the built-in ones with external ones. Remember:   Data...
I've owned this Calyx Coffee DAC/amp for only a few days. It uses the Sabre ES9023 chip and has media playback controls built into the chassis for convenience. They're incredibly detailed and I do like them, however, I think I would prefer something with a warmer and more bassy signature. I'm particularly interested in the HRT Music Streamer II+, CEentrance Dacport LX or iBasso D7. Please PM with offers with appropriate amount of top-up on either side if...
Not to be nit-picky but by dedicated line-out, do you mean the WM-Port which can be used as a line-out? If so, you might want to change your description a little. When I hear dedicated line-out, I tend to think of 3.5mm outputs not a LOD. Thanks for the review though, I've got a Z1070 on its way to me and the waiting is killing me. Also, have you tried Neutron Music Player on the Z1070? I've never used it but from what I've read, it sounds very promising.
It was brought to my attention that I was perhaps pushing the ASG-1 in a little deeper than intended. After making adjustments, I have to say that there is no contest between the bass on the IE8 and the ASG-1. The ASG-1 has a very noticeable advantage in terms of bass impact and definition.
I just got a D1 and I have popping noises when I use WASAPI on Foobar. However, I've found that switching over to kernel streaming or lowering the buffer size seems to alleviate the problem somewhat, so those having problems with popping and cracking may want to try experimenting with that.
OP, if you really like the sound of a pair of headphones, just go for it. If you're buying based on looks, just remember that what looks cool to you now might not look so cool to you 2-3 years later on. The more something tries to conform to current fashions, the more outdated they look when fashion changes. If you've ever looked at people dressed in the popular fashions of the previous decades and asked yourself, "What WERE they thinking?" Just remember that those...
If you're in Canada, have you tried going down to a local Sonystyle store? All the ones I've been to in Vancouver sell the hybrids by themselves.
Maybe check with Headphonebar? They don't stock the pads but they do carry Beyerdynamic headphones so they may be able to help you?
I wouldn't necessarily count out the the ASG-1s out straight away if what you're coming from are the IE8s. Before the ASG-1s arrived, I'd mostly been listening to full-sized headphones or clip-ons so me perceiving the soundstage as being narrow is probably to be expected. In fact, it's probably a compliment about the height of the ASG-1s since the fact that I perceive it to be narrow rather than just plain small means that the height is still fairly impressive for an...
