Subjectively the Layla is one of the most neutral sounding/flat sounding earphones/headphones I've experienced. It's probably my top two of all time. The other one being the Focal Spirit Pros. The difference is that the Layla is 10 times more transparent/clear/detailed and leaves $1,000+ IEMs like the K3003/IE800/SE846/W60 in the dust.   I'm a huge fan of studio monitoring sound, as I go out of my way looking for neutral sounding headphones/earphones. I've auditioned...
It wasn't because I was fully aware. I turned up the volume quite a bit to compensate, even much louder than what I had for SE. The balanced output kinda just sounds bad in general regardless of volume or gain. Sounds muffled with a wonky frequency response.
Strangely I like the AK100ii in SE mode better than balanced with my Layla. I tried balanced mode a few times and the sound quality seems to suffer (in my case anyway).   The combination is pretty glorious. It's always a nice listen.
Wow this is kind of funny because I was waiting for the aluminum version to be officially announced LOL   Even with the Layla in my stable I sometimes dream of the K3003 sound. I may need to get her back
Before I sold my DX90 I tried something that might solve your issue. Connect your DX90 to your PC using the USB cable. Once it shows up there should be a folder with cover art? or something inside, with like hundreds or thousands of files you can't read. Anyway delete the contents of that folder or the entire folder so that the DX90 doesn't have any visible files. I realize it sounds unrelated to the the problem but I had the feeling doing this also helped with the...
So much anger on this thread rofl It's funny cuz in about three months time everybody and their mama will own the AK360 and talk about how awesome it is Since over 10,000 people bought the Hugo for $2500, AK is counting on that group to buy this too.
I'm curious about the tuning of the X5 G2.   I liked everything about the original's sound signature except for hint of the Fiio house sound (he emphasized thick bass and slightly muted highs). I hope Fiio made it more airy/open sounding with neutral bass, let people who want colored sound do it with EQ or with bassy headphones.   Just my 2 cents of course. I hope early reviewers can shed some light about whether Fiio house sound still exists in 2nd Gen.
Sold!
I tested the Jr. side by side with the AK100ii and AK120ii.   Surprising how similar they got the signature while using a completely different DAC chip. I've never heard the wolfson sound so neutral. I could have sworn all three were using the Cirrus logic instead of Wolfson.   It lacks a bit of refinement and smoothness of the older brothers but it sounded pretty excellent/amazing. I think I would prefer it over the X5 and DX90, just because of the neutral signature....
Hello all,   I'm letting my DX90 go because I just purchased the AK100ii   It's a complete package deal that includes:   Ibasso DX90 + Dignis Buttero Black Leather Case + 3 Genunie Samsung Batteries + 64gb Sandisk Ultra micro-SD   I purchased all three Samsung batteries at offical Samsung stores (Samsung Digital Plaza) in Seoul, South Korea, so it doesn't get any more genuine than that.   Everything comes in mint condition, as pictured. The unit has never been...
