Headstage Arrow HE: Reviews, Impressions, Perceptions & Sensations - Page 174

post #2596 of 3117

 

4T came in yesterday. I'm really impressed with the added treble boost over the 3G model. The power remains pretty similar to past models though, and it can power the K701 and K702 at the same time, but be warned it works best if using headphones of the same impendence.

Anyone know where Robert gets hold of those small mini-mini's?

Can you compare the sound to an arrow 4g?

I need them too, the bigger one lasts longer than the tiny one

Could you compare the bass level between the 4T and the 3G?

I just my 4T and its great with my ER4P with Shure olives... My Etys have bass!

Well - it appears we were both wrong.  I contacted Rob - and just got reply back.  He says that for the current 4G/4T, the impedance is 3-5 ohms.

 

His exact reply ......

"Hi Paul,


its about 3-5 ohm output impedance now.

Hmm, strange.

I also always thought that its OI was 1ohm or less.

My original plan was to buy an Arrow-4 and pair it with my Fostex hpp1 for that very reason....until the Hifi-m8 came along.

 

Doesnt it have a three settings switch for different OI?

EDIT -seems like that was earlier versions.

I just need a side by side comparison between the 4g and 4t

Hi all

Does anyone know the different between 4 G and 4 T?
I have 4 G has already treble boost
Thank you

I believe that the 4T uses a different and more power demanding opamp (I can't remember which one), hence the lower battery life. The 4T should be more warmer, tube like sounding than the 4G. Otherwise they should both have the same functionality.

30 hours is still very respectable.

Absolutely..

3G vs 4T comparison, I wish someone had both.

post #2610 of 3117

So... after doing a lot of research on portable amps... I'm pretty decided on the Headstage Arrow 4G/T 

 

So it looks like the 4G is a bit brighter than the 4T. I'm looking at either one due to power, battery life and size. I'm going to be using it with my ASG-1 (eventually 2s) and M-100s mostly. I've already demoed the 3G with the M-100s and enjoyed it. However for general usage, I'd like the amp to be more neutral and transparent just in case I get different headphones in the future. 

 

I'll probably get the 4T, because it is easier to find/buy. Anyone have experience with them? Or any input on the sound signatures? I mean I can always adjust both in bass and treble, which is one of the focal reasons why I'm considering the Arrow HE.

 

There is a 4G is on the F/S forum now at 225 plus shipping. Is it worth it? Or should I grab the 4T at full price (and have free shipping iirc)? 

 

Thanks!
