“With DAC ONLY Pros: Clean light weight look and feel. Best sounding headphone so far. Sounds well balanced. Comfortable to wear and lightweight Cons: 1$ more than the above earbuds. Audio sounds muffled and “echo-y” [I am frantically checking my audio cables thinking something is wrong…. This sounds too horrible] Mids – as muddy and muffled – (4/10)...” --HardTraxX
“ Well... Sound comes out... ” --JonnyRocket
If the Playaz N1 were designed with reasonable amount of bass and they could be the steal of the century. In reality I can recommend them for EQ-friendly folks only - stay away if your source does not have a good, user customizable EQ.
