I used to love my stacks.
No i prefer a one piece such as the hifi skyn (two in one really), or just a dap.
A dongle like the Dragonfly would be ok too(i havent heard the recent versions but the Dragonfly always gets good press).
What phone do you have goldendarko?
My review (I`m a bit late to the party).
Sorry for the click out, I haven`t worked out how to copy and paste my reviews over to head-fi whole, the photos dont follow.
you need a special screwdriver - the same as used in iphones.I opened mine up to adjust the battery connector. Very easy. The battery sits in there with wires connected to a simple plug.I didnt take any photos, but a battery replacement shouldn't be hard to obtain.
Thanks for the positive feedback.
Nathan of Ohm image is a hiss master. He can pick it up very well.
One thing to be sure of is to load the right types of files. The Alien only works with certain formats And most importantly sizes.
The information is on the back of the plastic case if memory serves me well.
Also Shure seem to pop up in many an impression or review where hiss is concerned.
