You may want to try out the Nocturnal Audio for your price range or stretch your budget a little and reach for the 93spec!Nocturnal Audio:http://www.head-fi.org/t/702242/nocturnal-audio-custom-headphone-cableshttp://store.treoo.com/main/shop-by-brand/n/nocturnal-audio.html93spec:http://www.head-fi.org/t/628560/updated-with-impressions-new-silver-iem-cable-93spechttp://www.head-fi.org/t/636431/review-93spec-silver-custom-iem-cable-by-stage93Hope these helps!
@Leo888 This caught my attention. If this is tuned to perfectly compliment the FX750/850s based on their intended house sound, I am not surprised somehow.
Love the wooden chokers!
The iDAC sounds just fine hissing-wise, however there seems to be more noise floor whenever I adjust the volume knob when compared to the iCAN micro (with all 4 gain switches on the bottom being turned off)The iCAN micro was silent even when adjusting the volume knob, although hisses and audible noise floor would start to occur even at overall medium gain (with switch 3 and 4 being turned on at the bottom)
Bass (with X-Bass - Rather than saying that mid-bass has been reduced, I would say that the iCAN micro has did a decent job shifting the bass south a little towards the rumbling sub-bass region. This retains or in fact heigtened the overall fun factor while having more clarity and imaging when the 3D-Holo mode is being turned to the optimum. Presentation - The presentation of the FX850 on 3d-Holo mode at optimum, deserves the most mention imho. While the spatial arc is a...
[UPDATE] Since its on the way back home, I hopped over to another outlet where I was finally able to audition the iCAN Micro. First impression was that these sounded completely different from the iDAC. The iDAC had a shrilly quality to it that reveals itself gradually over a short time which made it unlistenable for long sessions; the iCAN micro on the otherhand, doesn't really adds anything to the FX850s, only heightening its dynamics and wider, realistic imaging via...
With the current setup state I was only able to test out FX850 with the iDAC (with iUSBpower) and my ol'93spec cable (did not bring the stock cable due to impromptu visit) Listening to Dr.Chesky's binaural recordings were a treat, partly accounting to the silver cable, the entire sound is wide open, each instruments from the trumpets and horn duo to my left, another to the right on "Back Home Again In Indiana"- -each nuances and pops of the vocals on the following...
@tienbasse thanks for your great review! Would be awesome to see more review and opinions coming in for these great woodies!
Lovely! Lets hope my 13s comes back asap too so I can hang out on whatever balanced setup demo that Jaben Singapore could offer.Sourcing cables and amps/dacs for both 13s and woodies, that just sounds plainly looking for trouble on a poor man's wallet. Damn the head-fi 😦
Now now earfonia, just here I am thinking that da legendary japanese wagnus cable ain't has a thing on me because its only available in balanced connectors.Now you have dug quite the old bones from under my rug.Not that I actually mind if price of a wagnus cable may or may not equals up the price of a few 850s summed up.Just need to source for a worthy and synergistic balanced amp that doesn't seems to absurdly be unfitting of the wagnus.I used to work at a headphone store...
