I bought it, own it, and am using now. It is too warm for my tastes. This is line-out to my cmoy to my ER-4S.   The low end is too loud and distracting for me now. In some of my music, the bassist is given too much attention, when the saxophonist is supposed to be the center of attention.   That said, it doesn't sound bad. Its sound is just not my preference. Take my impressions with a grain of salt. I could be exaggerating, but it's my perception. What you...
I've read reviews on the HM-101 describing it as sounding "warm", and "not analytical or cold". The thing is, the reviews didn't specify those characteristics as being attributed to the DAC+AMP, or just the DAC itself. Is the HM-101 DAC "warm" sounding? Or is it the combination of the DAC and built-in amp that sounds "warm"?   I plan to use the HM-101 as a DAC only -- it will be laptop -> foobar + wasapi for bit-perfect output -> HM-101 line-out -> cmoy amp -> ER-4S....
I'll have to wait another two days for the last two parts to come in, but I'd like to start soldering now. I'm using 63/37 solder (RA flux, 2.2% flux), and I was wondering how long after soldering can I wait without cleaning the board before damage occurs? I'm pretty sure the "A" in "RA flux" means "activated". I think it's corrosive... Would it be safe to solder, wait for two days or even one whole week without cleaning, complete soldering, and [i]then[/i] finally clean...
I sent an email to the address listed at the bottom of this page: http://www.amb.org/audio/gamma1/   Thanks!
On the amb website, only the Full configuration (A) has a panel drilling template in PDF format. I'm building the Full++ configuration (uses Box Enclosure B2-080), and from what I can see, my only resources are the .png images and the dimensions chart that provides all of the lengths and radii.   I live in the San Jose area, and I couldn't find any services that offer me pay-by-the-hour/day renting of a drill press. I've called Home Depot, atoolshed, and just Googled...
Hmm, never thought of using silica packs... Well, I live in San Jose, CA and the temperature and humidity don't fluctuate much at all. Also, I never open the case if I'm in a situation where I wouldn't use my dslr camera (water, moisture, sudden temperature change, etc.) Also, for me, it wouldn't fit inside the case with my headphones, anyway.
Whoa. I was thinking of a reply when I was reading the title of this thread before I clicked on it, and it seems that you already mentioned it in the first post. I'm using custom molds with my ER-4S, and I'm able to fit them in my otterbox 1000 waterproof hardcase. The case gives me great piece of mind; I highly recommend them. I know nothing about the pelican case, however. I'm not sure if you're going to need foam, but then again, my custom molds + ER-4P + ER4P-24 (p...
  My point was that you CAN'T have the music loud enough to drown out road noise, with or without IEMs. I actually strongly DISCOURAGED turning the music up loud enough to drown out road noise, stating that it would cause noise induced hearing loss. I don't use IEMs for sound quality or focus on music. I use them to preserve my hearing.   Even the the cars with the quietest interiors can only offer so much isolation. I'm pretty sure that there isn't a mass-produced car...
  If you're not alone, you can still keep your IEMs in, keep the music off and talk with any passenger(s). The road noise will force the passengers to raise their voices loud enough to penetrate the IEMs. Conversation will not be a problem. If he/she/they fall asleep, turn the music on. Only turn the music loud enough to a comfortable volume. Road noise will make it impossible to turn the music loud enough to drown it out without reaching SPL levels that cause noise...
A family member is looking for a set of isolating headphones that meet the following requirements, in order of importance:   Isolate well - She wants to use her headphones in loud environments.   Budget: Must be under $40 U.S. She will mistreat them. Spending too much money would be impractical.   Convenient - The headphones must not require a steep learning curve. IEM's are out of the question. The headphones must be easy to use by the common layperson....
