I've never heard any of those so I can't comment any more.

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be along in a moment.

Perhaps you'd be better off to consider other headphones?

as far as i have red, ray sammuels designs his amps for ipods, and i have a fuze
post #9 of 36
he doesnt just design them for ipods, they are an all around headphone amp.

Having a Line Out instead of a headphone out will improve any amp, but your fuze wont have that. All of Ray Samuels newest additions, like the Predator, the Mustang, and a few others, have no detectable sibilance in my experience.

It might be your ears/source!

I suffer with sibilance and i've found best cure is cans, with dt770s or hd650 there is no sibilance; not sure an amp can help.

I also have sibilance issue with the PK1. I believe in one of the in-depth reviews, the reviewer has mentioned sibilance on PK1 which was absent on the OK1.

Are your PK1s fully burned in?

I found that mine's sibilance decreased noticeably after they got at least 100 hours runtime.

Well over 500hrs.

Can't you EQ out the sibilance????

Shouldn't be too hard to drop the response in the 3-6 k range.
