Mini-Review: iBasso T3 portable amp - Page 4

post #46 of 154
How does the t3 compare to the nuforce if you are using the nuforce usb dac and the t3 is straight out of the headphone jack, on a device that doesnt have as good of a headphone out as the iphone? Like a smart phone?

How's the performance when compare the T3 to D3? i like D3 bcoz the battery life. i really can't stand with D4 with only 9hrs battery life which ibasso declared in the spec.

like the T3 (i still compared it with D3 or D4 which come with DAC) , but worry buy the wrong thing then regret later. anyone can guide me about this?

how T3 charge? using the power adapter or USB? (it come with USB?) anyone here can post some clear photos to show the T3 unit?

is it possible to change the battery ourselves if the battery failed?


thanks

T3 has very good sound, IMO, better than D3. It charges from either USB or AC charger, using USB cable.

It comes with everything necessary for charging. There is good pix on iBasso website. Battery is not user changeable. Battery life is about 35 hours. It has dual gain switches which allow you to choose between 4 different gain settings.

Considering the sound of this tiny amp, it is a bargain!

HiFlight,
thanks for your reply. so u means that i'm not necessary to get a DAC like D4 or maybe D3 and D2.. ? actually what is the purpose for DAC?

sorry for noob question again.. the T3 and T3D, means that the volume in T3 is normal "turn" type and the 1 in T3D is by pressing to increase the volume?

The DAC (digital to analog converter) is to connect the amp to your computer USB port and use the amps's DAC to decode (or translate) the digital music into analog sound that you can hear. If you wont use it with your computer, you don't need the DAC.

then will stick to the T3

one more question.. what is the purpose for op-amps which like P3+?

compared to minibox-d t3 is more transparent, has better bass, but has weaker treble, less power. In addition, soundstage is better on minibox - its more 3-d, more sounds are in front of the listener. maybe t3 needs more hours (150 so far), but I doubt...

maybe i'm wrong, but this is what i looking for. the sound in front nicer instead of just stay beside ur ears.. correct me if i'm wrong.

minibox d has too much treble so you really have to match headphones. soundstage on t3 maybe is wider, bigger behind you. I don't have it anymore, but t3 is better for sure overall.

I received my T3 earlier this week(ordered due to the great review in this thread) and I can't believe how something so tiny can sound so powerful. I love that it has a Lithium battery too so I won't have to worry about replacing batteries. It sounds really great with my REO's but I haven't tried them with my Pk1's yet so I'm not fully sure if it will be able to drive them. Anyways, I'm thankful for the great info in this thread and forum!

Until I get my Pico Slim, the T3 is the only portable amp I have been carrying around with me, velcro'd to the back of my 5G Nano. The T4 is likely going to be sold or given to my son for his 12th b-day.

I think it would be worth it, and I only use LOD, never iPod headphone out to feed an amp.

I am definitely looking forward to getting back the T3 and D4 which were out on loan. Both are just so freaking good it is scary, specially when you consider their size and relatively LOW PRICE. Yeah, iBasso has a pair of winners w/ both of them.
