If you want strong bass, the the Ety's will not make you happy.

Only IEM I own that crushes the Triple.Fi in the Bass department (and every other way pretty much) is the JH13.

The UE11 has insane bass as well. (but at the expense of treble and some midrange)

dont mean to mislead u immitbiker

i always want a er4p for their clear sound etc not the bass, tf10 is pretty all rounded but at this stage before i do some comparison it just not for me so i might keep RE0 and get a headphone for the bass purpose~ eventually i m gonna get headphone any way~ right now i m leaning toward HD650/HD800/DT990 600 ohm

if i travel to asia next year then i might look for AKG etc

until i hear grado then i will decide but at this stage grado is out because i dont think the built quality match the price~ and the customer getting enough respect judging by un-even built quality u can have fang do his best to finalize the quality without compromise or you could pay over 1000+ for grado and not getting the quality for the price. so grado have not earn my respect yet ( then again i havent hear it)

I don't think the question concerning this player's ability to play 24-bits/96KHz files has been sufficiently answered. Could someone kindly elaborate because most of my music IS 24-bits/96KHz. The specs state that the DAC part of this player CAN support it. I am seeing this more and more and since it is becoming/has become mainstream, I would like to know if the HiFiMan can play it. Chesky and Linn for example are just a couple of companies offering their music at this resolution.
Thank You

Hi Fang, I know this is off topic but since this is your thread... and I just wanted to clarify my earlier statement:
I know the re0 comes with extra filters in the package it is just htat you have to replace them at all. I am pretty sure I would not be able to do it myself and would have to ask someone to help me do it. A few months back when I was searching for an iem i seriously considered re0 because of relative cheap price and good reviews but htis held me back.
I am sure it sounds great htough
A lot of luck with the hifiman, I am following this thread with interest.
Greetings, Anouk,

I actually tried some LINN studio master downloads on HifiMan 801. For example, "Hymn to Nina" - Barb Junger in 88/24 FLAC, "Life Jacket" - Ian Shaw in 88/24 FLAC, "Spem in alium" - Thomas Tallis in 96/24 FLAC and the tracks in LINN 96/24 samplers Vol3. They work fine.
However, the acclaimed "Raising Sand" - Robert Plant & Alison Clause in 96/24 download from HDTracks does not work.
Fang already stated that their coming patch solves this problem.

Excellent !!! Thank You Very Much for your response.

If there was a 6db bass boost option - Software or Hardware that would really take care of bass problems whether with Ety4P/S or AKG701s ... cheers

Hey Guys

Will the issue of gapless playback definitely be fixed? I understand that the pause between tracks is close to zero, but its important for some albums / recordings for it to be exactly zero or else it just doesn't sound right.

Thanks,
Jim

I have an idea for albums that need gapless playback.

As a temporary "fix", I will rip or join files to make one continuous file.

Anyone know of a free tool to join MP3 and Flac files together. I could be wrong, but I believe they can be joined without reencoding.

That is when I get my HiFiMAN.

ProTools can do this easily but is not free. Can you find someone using it?

The free MP3DirectCut can join MP3 files non-destructively and without transcoding. Not sure about solutions for FLAC. I guess you'd have to unpack it to WAV, merge (with freeware Audacity, or any other sound editor), and repack.

How to join (combine) multiple MP3 files in Windows - Simple Help
I believe Foobar2000 can merge FLAC files.

Select songs. Right-click on them and choose Convert. Converter Setup window gives an option "Merge all tracks into one output file"

Foobar2000 is quite capable of doing things in simple way. For example when I wanted to convert .ape files into .flac files, I did it without first converting them into .wav files. To be sure, I did it once again, now with that 1 more step (conversion) into .wav and then into .flac. The resulting .flac files was identical in both cases.

But I'm not giving any guarantees. Please test it on your own. Thanks for understanding.
