 Ooh boy, that's a loaded question around here! The most important thing for Hugo + a laptop setup is to get something with good RF isolation. What's your budget? The Vertere D-Fi  is what I've been using. I've tried a few, and this is my favorite so far (as far as USB A to Micro cables go). It's nice and thin but durable, has good shielding, and is just convenient to use. Solid cable that won't break the bank, and has a ton of different length options as well. Of course...
 Here ya go, have fun guys.  
I should have been more clear that the last part of my post was not directed at you. It was just a general observation. We have all missed a good part of this thread.    I guess I just don't consider the "issues" with the Bluetooth to be issues really at all. I think that it's cool that it has it, and I don't consider these issues to prevail outside of the normal and limited behavior of Bluetooth audio. But that's just my thought, and the Bluetooth implementation is not...
It's just Bluetooth. That's how it is. It's inherently and fundamentally flawed as an audiophile platform. It just isn't capable of handling the bandwidth, unfortunately. Pitiful sound quality in comparison to the other inputs for critical listening. It's amazing that the Hugo has something like that to begin with, and should be viewed as a cool bonus feature for convenience, and that's about it. And even for a BT device, Hugo has pretty limited range. It wouldn't think it...
 Ha! To each his own. It was one of those things for me, where it must be obtained, it just must.   100% agreed. I did not mean to imply I thought TH900 was not visceral. Just not on the level of the Abyss. But then again, there's nothing out there that really is on that level. 
Alrighty guys, for the sake of all that is Abyss.    I adore the TH900. Best "closed" can, and a top longstanding favorite. The bass is excellent in both, and different. You're both right.    As visceral, joyous, and great fun as the Abyss bass is, it really doesn't go that low. My LAB I IEM does a cleaner job at 25Hz. TH900 bass is not as visceral because it is just so clean. Almost too clean. Like most BA bass could use a nice dose of distortion to fire 'em up! For...
But don't y'all think though, that any measurements involving the Abyss must be taken with a grain of salt? It's the only can I've experienced where the sound, especially the bass, can vary drastically with millimeter changes in head or earpad placement. Without the most perfected fit, I can get loads of distortion down low at fairly low volume.    I would think the Abyss extremely difficult to measure with any authority in accuracy. That's not to say any of the...
No. Can you be a little more specific? Or post some photos?I hit submit on this about eight times when you first posted. It never went.
 This explains a little about what the Audiophileo does to your USB audio.  The very short of it, is that cables are basically large antenna, which suck up all the signals of the stuff around it. Anything electrical is making electrical noise. It's in your main power lines, from your cell phone, the dimmable desk lamp, etc... EMI/RFI has a pretty considerable impact on USB audio digital streams. It can impact the timing of the stream, causing timing errors - or jitter -...
   Exactly ^^ We can't know how big the difference is that you're hearing. I'm willing to bet that the USB from the Mac is loaded with a noisy signal. From what you describe, that is also what I would expect interference to sound like. The iPad will be much quieter. The mac has so much going on, and just injects that right into the signal. Are you using the same USB cable for each application? You can help by adding a good cable with good isolation from RF interference....
