 My guess is that it is optical and would be activated if I plugged an adapter into it. I'll probably just see if I can find an inexoensive mini-toslink adapter to plug in. 
It's right next to the headphone jack, so it's more of a case of accidentally plugging the headphones in. There's no response from the computer or the headphones when I do it though, which suggests to me that it is in fact optical.   I believe I've also tried it with a 3.5mm to RCA coaxial cable, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't think I got any response from the computer when I did so, though, but I don't have any equipment to test it on anyway. The only response I could...
I have a Lenovo Y50, and I'd like to be able to use its S/PDIF port. I have no idea if it's optical or coaxial though, and I'm having trouble finding any way to determine which it is. It's a regular 3.5mm jack, but the laptop doesn't recognize anything that I have that's plugged in to it (read: it's right next to the headphone jack). There's no visible light coming from it, but the light might only turn on , and I don't have an adapter to try. I'd rather not buy an adapter...
 That would probably convince me not to buy from either LMYE or VSONIC again, honestly. 
Well, preordered one of each as soon as they went on sale. I've been wanting some new IEMs, and getting 4 pairs of VSONIC IEMs for $95 CAD is a pretty good deal to me. We'll see how they are (maybe I'll review them).
To the best of my knowledge, Ety does their custom sleeves like this:   1. You purchase the IEMs themselves through an authorized retailer. 2. You register on the custom sleeve website and reference where you purchased your IEMs. 3. You pay for the custom sleeves. 3. You visit one of Etymotic's network audiologists and get impressions done. The audiologist will send the impressions to Ety, Ety will make the sleeves and send them to you.   So if you can't find a...
I have a laptop that I want to use to listen to music with my Little Dot I+, however the laptop completely ruins ground and causes a ground loop when plugged in. This creates horrible noise through the amp. Using a Grub DAC sort of helps, but only in that it makes most things louder than the noise - the noise stays level. The noise is present in any other device (like my iPod Touch) connected through USB.   So basically, I need something that isolates ground from my...
I was looking for some new IEMs to replace my DBA-02s that went through the washer (whoops... they still work but the male end plug is dicey now), looking through Joker's thread, and decided on these. Went to LendMeUrEars and they're on clearance for $130 USD (163 SGD). That's not a bad deal, so if you're looking for a pair now's probably the time to pick them up.
Willing to split them up, and willing (either way) to ship to Canada (I'd pay the difference in price from CONUS to Canada USPS, so long as it wasn't too much). I'm interested (mainly in the Modi), but I'm Canadian so I would need it shipped to Canada :p  
I bought a Little Dot I+ headphone amp off another Head-Fi user recently, and when I hooked it up to my laptop I discovered something awful! First of all, there's some sort of ground loop issue or other power related issue that generates huge amounts of noise when the laptop is connected to the amp (even with the volume at 0). Secondly and, perhaps, more importantly, my laptop is a POS source.   Now, I would like to use my laptop with this amp. That's the main reason...
