Headstage Arrow HE: Reviews, Impressions, Perceptions & Sensations - Page 166

post #2476 of 3151

Subbed. Interest piqued after reading the first two pages. I'll be reading the rest later...  

 

Money saving mode. I've now lost all interest in the E12; unless someone can tell me how the E12 is better than the Arrow? lol.

The Headstage Arrow is on my short list of portable amps, but I am concerned this is the only amp that doesn't readily publish its power, considering it is the single most important spec of an amp.  Every other amp highlights this.  I even emailed a retailer of these who didn't know.  Does anyone know how many mw/channel the Arrow outputs?

I can tell you that I come no where near the limit using IEMs and only on the 2nd gain switch, one more step up to go. There is also a headphone combined adapter that comes with the amp that plugs into both headphone outs at the same time to create one headphone out. I have not tried this at all yet but that may also be something to check into. I would send Robert a direct message from the Headphonia site as he is good about getting back to people and just ask him directly, if you have not already done so.

I can't speak from personal experience, but my understanding is that it is capable of driving up to an HD800. 

 

Mostly sticking to Westone 4s and M-100s (primarily with Ipod Touch 5 Lightning Adapter/LOD as source), I've never had to use the gain switch.

Thanks.  Then it must have generous power.

It drives/drove my HD650, K701, and a power hungry modded T20RP(it takes high gain on my NFB10WM to get to my levels of listening) easily with plenty of power to spare. And still drives my JH5 wonderfully with zero hum.

Hate to bring old thread but did anyone else developed any problems with their CHG port? I used to use it as an input but sadly my right channel no longer has continuous audio, the right channel audio keeps disconnecting. 

 

edit:Dusty port, my bad.

It is impossible to find the 3G anywhere. Can anyone point me in some general direction?

post #2484 of 3151
3G would have to be used, 4G is current model and get through Headphonia.com from Robert.
post #2485 of 3151

Thanks. Because I can't find a used 3G anywhere I am thinking about going ahead and purchasing a 4G from Headphonia. Can anyone tell me about the differences in the bass boosts between the two models and any other worthwhile distinctions?

post #2486 of 3151

Bass Boost of 3G is +6db on position I and +12 db on position II, Bass boost on 4g I think is 3db and 6db.  4g has treble switches also instead of impedence switch.  I have a 3g for sale if you're interested.

post #2487 of 3151
I can tell you that I only use the higher bass boost on IEMs that are a bit bass light otherwise I am on position 1 of the 4g and I like my bass deep and punchy but not a bass head.

I really cannot tell but I can give you this much, I own the Objective 2 amp which has specs readily available all over the web, it goes louder than O2 with the gain swiches, it is more resolving than O2, it bass feature adds bass but it is not a huge add, it is enough to please me ( and I am no bass head). Hope that helps.

I just received mine last Thursday. After a long 7 years of listening to my UE Superfi Pro 5's with various sources, I decided to get a bit more involved. That's the long way of saying my ears hijacked my wallet again! Nonetheless, I've paired it with my Sony X1061 and Vsonic GR07's. Sweet to my ears! Full sized cans are next. Why fight this bug? biggrin.gif

The sound stage on arrow with my k702 is small, I dont think arrow 4G paired with headphone do the headphones any good. Why not stick to IEM? :-D
