Thanks, but from what I remember Mike did not try the Toucan balanced at all. But I'm not sure, gonna read his review again.

Yes originally when he first got it and did a mini not really review thing, I am certain he bought it himself and still uses it though, perhaps it was foolish of me to assume that by this point he had some balanced cables to use with it :O

 

I'm pretty sure he's got at least balanced iem cables for it but I couldn't be certain of that either.

I just asked Mike in the comments to review the Toucan with the Ibasso cables for the Sennheiser cans. He loves Sennheisers, so we will see what happens.

hi

sorry,for the late guys can get iriver h140 on ebay they are very good just ordered from iriver europe just give you the name of the seller     myirivershop     good seller nothing to say.

i just had my combo iriver h140+pb1+boomslang with ultimate ears triple 10 just miss the balanced with the iem,but all that can say the music is very great with it, i just compare it with the hifiman hm 601 that i bought for the winter deal ,the is no comparison,the combo is much better  for the quality

post #606 of 612

that may be true but i'm sure some people really value the fact that the 601 is an all in one unit and still sounds great

 i just ordered a sennheiser hd600,to improve the quality of sound i am going to order the ibasso balanced cable ,i 'll have i think the real potential of this combo,why the hd 600? it was cheaper,i know that the hd 650 seems to be superior, but in some thread i just read about the fact that he is still a good one i 'll see.

just a question how did you charge the boomslang?

I think you will be very pleased with your choice of the HD600 and iBasso's balanced cable.  The cable they use is the heavier HD650 cable, much better than the stock HD600 cable, IMO. 

 

I have owned both the HD600 and 650 and much preferred the 600.   The Boomslang is charged by either a USB terminated AC adapter or by attaching to a computer USB connection and placing the charging switch to the "Charge" position.   The red light will indicate charging and will extinguish when charging is complete.

You need to have a male and female connector. Connect them and then on male, there are two flat areas you can use a small wrench (I just use a needle nose plier) and unscrew the shell of the connector. Once you see what it going on it will be easy. When you solder you should have the male and female connected as the pins can float int he plastic molding due to the heat. Do it hot and fast. I use a magnifying glass also.

It looks like the DB-2 is out with the dual Wolfson dacs. Sucks a lot of current though so it won't get the run time of the DB-1 but I look forward to the dual battery power supply and the sound. . .
