Thanks man, I'll definitely shoot him an email. I'd like to get a silver low profile one. Plus since my E17 has caps, I wouldn't need any in the LOD. And for using my iPod in the car, I figure the ALO Copper 18 LOD will work.
Ok, so here is a question I have for everyone. I think I am more of a treble head then I originally thought. Does anyone use the equalizer on the iPod when you are using the line out? To me a Flat equalizer sounds really veiled, or almost as if the music is covered with a layer of fog. When I turn the treble up, it becomes clear. Now this is one reason I went with the Fiio E17 amp. It has a built in equalizer with bass and treble control. Treble and Bass on the Fiio E17 go from -10 to +10. I normally have the E17 set to 0 Bass, and +4 Treble. But I also recently realized that the iPod built in equalizer works for the LOD connection. So now I have been using the iPod equalizer set to Treble Booster, and the E17 at +4 Treble. To me this sounds very clear and as if the sound is unvield, or brought forward. Which appeals to me. I feel like maybe if someone else listened to my settings it would be far to sharp and bright. Maybe its due to my hearing loss from my time on military deployments.
Granted I'm using Bose IE2s as my portable IEMs and they may be a bit Bass Heavy. With my Beyerdynamic DT880 cans, I will turn the Equalizer on the iPod off, but keep the +4 on the E17.
So does any one else utilize the equalizer on the DiyMod? Do I just need better IEMs? Either way, it sounds good to me so I guess thats all that matters, but I was curious as to if anyonoe else utilized the iPod equalizer to adjust the sound from the DiyMod.
