REVIEW: Fischer Audio Mystify - Page 3

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....


Luis, why do you only review Fisher products?

Hopefully soon! I can't wait until you guys hear the Mystify with natural sounding IEM's and headphones. It's price is fantastic and the sound (or lack thereof) is equally as impressive.

Don't forget about delivery. Russian delivery services not so cheap as american. Deliver y to USA may cost up to 50-80USD (From a door to a door)

But as i see in description. 300USD  - it's cheaper than autor thinking while listenin device smily_headphones1.gif

I'm picking up some Fischer Audio products (couple of DBA-02's, Silver Bullets) from a reseller in Russia in the next two weeks for some friends. Will try to get my hands on this amp and DAC as well if he has them available. Looking forward to comparing the amp to my Headstage Arrow.

I was just listening to some binaural classical recordings. The chain is Clip+ (Rockboxed) -> Fischer Audio Mini to Mini -> Fischer Audio Mystify -> DBA-02.

 

Honestly, I have never heard a more natural and transparent portable rig than this. Pinky swear, scout's honor, etc... What blows my mind is how cheap this set-up is. Just one year ago I never would have imagined such a transparent and natural sounding rig at this price point. I know a vast majority of people love a "colored" or "fun" sound but I have always valued naturalness and transparency over anything else. Some call it boring, I call it life-like. I want to feel like I am there or like I am in a control room monitoring the recording.

 

With Classical Music, I really need fast attacks and good transient response. The above rig definitely fulfills that roll. The air around the instruments is superb as is the detail. Well mastered recordings are simply amazing. I can't find something to dislike about it! TOOL, Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon, London Symphony Orchestra, Diana Krall, Nat King Cole, Lady Gaga - they all sound great. This portable rig truly defines the old saying "Quality in....quality out. Crap in...crap out".

 

Speaking of which, I was listening to the following:

 

1000x500px-LL-a974a0a4_519KP1B42DL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

 

The sense of immediacy and placement is so, so good. It really does feel like you are there. It was there before with just the Clip+ but with the amp it's on a different level altogether. The Organ Symphony's Third Movement is especially impressive. You can really sense how much air that organ displaces and the quality of the tone of the instruments is very real. Real natural sound that just impresses beyond what a portable should.

 

Find anything else that is that has a natural sound and you're usually looking at paying upwards of $1,000.00 for a single component. One of the most natural sounding CD players I have ever heard was also one of the first. It still sells regularly for over $1,000 on the used market. Here we have $50 -> free w. purchase -> $260 -> $160! That's less than $500 for first class sound. Win-Win all the way.

I'm ditching the reshell option for my DBA-02. MsKaysen is not responding to my email anyway biggrin.gif

I'm gonna get this amp and sell my C-2C if it does take the DBA-02 to another level.

Cant wait to see how this amp stacks up against some of the big names ie. pico slim , arrow 12he , ttvj slim and some rsa amps. Would be impressive if competes even more so if it out preforms. nice review BTW LFF.

Great review. This is interesting indeed. I like this portable amp design: robust components, big caps, lots of power... I would love to hear it.
