REVIEW: Fischer Audio Mystify - Page 2

post #16 of 104

@LFF

 

I'm curious, assuming the Mystify is ~$300, would you recommend it for purely at-home use?

And, if you use the Mystify while it is charging, is there any change in SQ?


Thanks in advance!

If it can power your headphones, then yes, I would definitely recommend it for purely at-home use. Once you hear it, I doubt you will limit it to strictly home use though.

 

The other thing that impressed me is how quiet the amp is. If you turn the volume all the way up, you get no self-noise. When you charge it, the sound quality doesn't change unless the battery is super low, in which case, it sounds better. Any noise you do get is strictly from the source. It's a very impressive little amp especially with my natural sounding headphones.

It powered the Senn HD-600 very well so I am assuming it would do well with the K701. I don't own a K701 unfortunately, but I am sure it would do well. The FA-003 is a 64Ohm headphone and it was driven quite well with the volume knob below 1/4 (8 o'clock position) of the way. At the 10 o'clock position it sounds a bit too loud for me. With the Senn HD-600's, the 12 o'clock position is a bit too loud but still comfortable. THAT'S ONLY HALF WAY!!! No distortion...no noise...just pure, unadulterated natural sound.

That is just great news! I think i know what my next purchase will be

I will be using this mostly with my IEMs (dba-02, SM3 etc.) but the added bounus of the amp being able to possiblely drive the k701 is a welcome one.

I been wait for this amp soo long.

Just curious but how is the channel imbalance for your DBA-02? I have yet to encounter an amp that did not have channel imbalance with earphones so wondering at what level does the channel imbalance end assuming there is some.

I didn't find any imbalance. 1960's eara Blue Note recordings are a dead give away when it comes to an imbalance. I didn't experience this with the DBA-02 and the Mystify. Soundstage placement was correct. Binaural recordings are fantastic as well.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

 

 



So - what a problem. You can get it with 2702 or 1794 DAC smily_headphones1.gif

Mr. Wallet will not be happy with these news

I just wanted to clarify something for anyone reading this.

 

If you see my profile, you will see that I own various headphones and IEM's - many, like some skullcandy's and v-moda's aren't even listed. I used to own even more before I cured my headphone/IEM acquisition disorder. Why does it matter? I was told that it was weird that I only review Fischer Audio products. This isn't true. I have other new products since my first review but I haven't reviewed them because they aren't anything special. In other words - they have not impressed me. I will not say which ones either...so don't ask. I thought the Clip+ was impressive and I wrote about that.

 

I do have some other products coming which look promising and if they impress me, then you can bet your sweet ears that I will write a review on them. I don't want to write a review on anything or everything I get. It takes me a long time to evaluate these things and writing a review on everything would just take too much time. However, I rather take on the plan to only write reviews on things that impress me and that I would personally recommend. If I get a new headphone or amp or whatever and it impresses me as much as these Fischer Audio products, then I will tell you guys about them. If I find somethings that is better than the DBA-02 from another company, then I will review it and say so. Until then, rest assured that these are my honest opinions and should be taken only as such. As always, you're free to buy anything your sweet little heart desires, even Dr. Dre Beats...... 

 

Rant over....
