So I've been looking into buying a new DAP to upgrade from playing music off my Iphone, and I'm pretty interested in the Hisound Rocoo BA and Studio-V models. The main problem/complaint I've heard about this line of players is the hiss that the produce with highly sensitive headphones. I've got a pair of ATH-Ck10's for my IEM's and I was wondering anyone knows how they would sound with these players? I'd prefer getting the Studio-V, but if the hiss would be too bad I'd...
Thanks for the recommendations! Any idea how comfortable the Final Audio Design and Ortofon models are? Some of those brass models from FAD look like they could be pretty rough.
So I'm about to leave town for about half a year and as a result, need to leave my home setup of The Headroom Desktop Amp and Audiotechnica W5000 behind for a while. I'm looking to buy a pair of IEM's but I've never bothered buying a quality pair because I've always had comfort issues. In general, I like headphones with a nice and clear mid like most of the audiotechnica can models. Something that sounds good with IDM/classical/japanese and anything with prominent female...
Yea, that about covers it. For the DAC/amp, I guess my definition of portable is that it is small enough to be transported in my bag with my laptop easily. A pocket amp would be kind of neat, but I can always just use my Cmoy in that case.    Atlanta is my usual residence, but I'm actually living pretty far away from there for the rest of the year.
Hey guys, I was asking around the recommendations thread and didn't get any feedback so I figured I'd try again. I'm wondering if anyone could throw me a few suggestions to help me sift through choices. So I'm currently away from my home setup of the headroom desktop amp/dac and Audio Technica w5000 for a long time, and I'm trying to find a somewhat more portable setup to use for the next year or so. The current plan is to spend about $500(Can go higher if I need to) on...
Hey guys, just wondering if anyone could throw me a few suggestions to help me sift through choices. So I'm currently away from my home setup of the headroom desktop amp/dac and Audio Technica w5000 for a long time, and I'm trying to find a somewhat more portable setup to use for the next year or so. The current plan is to spend about $500 on a portable dac+amp+headroom combo.    For an amplifier, I built a cmoy amp from jds labs earlier this year as a little...
So, I'm trying to decide between the Audio Technica ATH-W5000 and the ATH-A2000x does anyone have a good comparison between the two? I've seen them compared a few times and was just wondering what you guys think. Also, they will be paired with a Headroom Desktop amp/dac. I've been trying out a pair of the W5000 and I'm pretty much in love with the pair.
Hey guys, does anyone have any recommendations on a good pair of closed headphones similar to the audiotechnica ath a7000? I used two different pairs of the a7000 for about 4 year, but always ended up having cable issues with them. About 6 months ago I bought a pair of Beyerdynamic Dt770 Pro 80 Ohm from recommendations of other electronic music fans, but I've found they don't really have the energy that my old Audio Technicas had. I've been told that what I'm describing...
