Bought these 550s NZ new sometime ago. They have lived mostly in my room in a cloth bag. I have the original box and documentation, they are in perfect condition except for one tear in the left ear-pad lining (not that it makes any difference to listening). The 550s have quite a unique sound signature. I have grown to really love them and will miss them but need the extra cash. There's an appreciation thread which does them justice but I characterise them as having a...
A unit I bought a few years ago. It has had very little use and basically never got out of the house, as such it is in pretty excellent condition. However it is missing the power adaptor (broke at some point), meaning I have been charging it via usb. It comes with the original box and I am willing to send an 8GB SD card with it. I live in NZ so shipping may be a little costly unless you live in AUS or NZ. Feel free to ask any questions, I'm moving it on because I am not...
Awesome! Just got a reply on Kickstarter to my above question: "Hi Andrew. Thanks for your input. Yes -if we have enough interest in adding a DAC, we will add this as a stretch funding goal and set this as a separate model."
The treble on the 550s to me is the weirdest thing. I have come to the conclusion that my ears are slightly more sensitive to treble than the average persons. I almost immediately on-sold DAPs in the past because they came across as too harsh when no one else had a problem with them. I have a pair of AudioFly AF56s and although I am very happy with them every now and then their treble comes across too harsh. So with all that said you would think I hate the 550s treble. It...
I'm just so proud of this coming out of New Zealand. I might actually for once be able to try before I buy. It is insanely cheap but those who have heard the prototypes seem to like it. I asked whether there was a possibility of bypassing the output DAC in future models, just waiting on a reply. Also maybe the thread starter wants to change the thread title to just "First portable valve headphone amp". See if we can generate some interest. 
I am aware this is a bit of an ancient thread but I wanted to ask the specific people here. Is there really no point in an external DAC then? If that's the case why is there such a range of both external and internal DAC's to choose from? Furthermore do you think there is much benefit in a desktop amplifier at all? Take the Schiit Bifrost for example?    I'm just trying to get a better bearing on what is being said here.
iFixit listed the only audio related part as the Cirrus Logic 338S1201 Audo Codec, does anyone know if this is the DAC?
From memory there is no noticeable difference between the 50s and 50x but searching forums round here will probably be a better option 
Yeah they don't clamp on and I have a medium sized head, they were even looser when I got them but head band bending fixed that easily enough. At this point if I look straight down they very slowly start slipping off
Check out the review on here of the Audiofly AR56s. I am looking for a pair of IEM's myself and am leaning towards these because apparently they have a decent soundstage for IEMs and a strong emphasis for bass. They are cheap too depending on where you live =p
