Ironically, I live in Oxford, Ohio.

 

Oxford? That's nowhere near where I envisioned, I thought you were in north Dayton, like Huber or Tipp :p

 

I don't get out to the Oxford area much anymore, is the Smokin' Ox still open up there? I loved their specials when I worked in the field for TWC before moving into an office spot.

Just pondering on a purchase of a Fiio E09k.

Currently, I'm running a Sennheiser HD558 to my PS3 with a Turtle Beach DSS. While it does sound fine, I do feel that I'm getting a little bit of distortion on volumes above the 2 o'clock mark on the DSS.

 

Any reason if I should go for a FiiO E09k? While I know the HD558 is pretty easy to drive (50ohms), its actual impedence does fluctuate quite a bit depending on the volume and range —  AFAIK, anywhere from 60 ~ 250ohms (peak though).

Will an E09k make the HD558 sound better?

 

Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't it's (relatively) high output impedance be troublesome for a headphone with significantly fluctuating impedance...

Yep. 

 

I''m pretty sure Smokin' Ox is still there.

I too, out of the goodness of my heart, would be willing to help you out with your car trouble through the exchange of money for your headphones, and unlike the other guy, you wouldn't have to ship them, because I am also in Orlando, FL.

Man, if it came down to it I would try and sell something else instead.  The anniversaries will probably be hard to get a hold of again.  The price seems to be hovering up near MSRP now...

I forgot all about this thread, heck I forgot about Headfi.

Unfortunately I came back now my wallet is losing weight. Anyway, Nice review on the LCD-2. I plan on picking up a pair soon.

Hey guys, I need a little help. Does anyone have the  Xaunyan XY-006? They are out of stock and after a bit of research I noticed the striking similarity to the DAGEE DG001MIC.

 

The similarity is so striking the looks, the specs and even the packaging seems to match:

 

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Wholesale-Hands-Free-Clip-Mini-DAGEE-001-Voice-Microphone-for-PC-Notebook-Black-Colour-Free-shipping/716690_733481518.html

 

I mean the similarity is so close that if you look at the DX site, the pictures show 2 different mics for the Xaunyan XY-006, based on forum comments it seems the other version of the mic had rubber cabling at some point and a different look, some research into the DAGEE DG001 I found screenshots of the same rubber version existing in the past too.

 

http://www.dhgate.com/portable-microphone-for-pc-computer-laptops/p-ff8080812f2de36a012f3e41fad26b89.html

 

 

This makes me think that the Xaunyan XY-006 and DAGEE DG001 are the same exact mic either supplied by the same manufacturer or Xuanyan or dagee supply it to each other. The big difference here is that unlike the Xaunyan XY-006, the DAGEE DG001 is much easier to get my hands on so just curious if its the same mic. So if anyone that has one, can you please confirm?

Aw, that sucks. Car parts are expensive.

 

I was hoping to give that K702 65th a nice audition, too, but now I may not get the chance. (I really could use some first-hand AKG impressions for once.)

 

Even then, I wouldn't be in the position to buy it now, seeing as this infernal site gets the best of my wallet yet again and I bid on a Stax SR-Gamma...and won, unexpectedly for anything Stax selling on eBay. Guess I had to find out how well the Gamma series can hold up to the Lambda series, even with the Lambda's driver size advantage.

That's what I was thinking too... hmm~ decisions, decisions.

I don't want to waste the time to get an E09k and just to sell it off a week later.

Well, If I sold it, it'd be for right around $400 shipped. Considering it's no longer sold at $410-430 like before, and availability is disappearing. Being at $400 would give me a reason not to sell it either. Bought it at a higher price myself.

I really don't wanna sell it. Time will tell. There is nothing I find faulty on them, like...at all. Even the LCD2 has some minor quirks. Annies? ZERO.

It's been so long since I've played any games with my Pro2900 in stock form that I've forgotten how it sounded. Then again I'm too lazy to open up the drivers again and plug up the hole with tape. I'll pop in MW2 tomorrow and play a bit.

 

Also, I do have the "Version 2" of the Hfi-2200 which is supposed to be identical to the 2400, except for the color, I prefer the 2900 compared to the 2200 because the 2200 sounds just too congested when there's a bunch of stuff going on in game. They're still good though but the 2900 is just better imo.

How does this configuration sound?

 

Titanium X-fi HD -> Objective2 -> Q701

 

If this is agreeable (from what I can tell it seems to be very good) what cables should I use?

 

Should I go with some audioquest rca to 3.5 for the first leg then the standard 3.5 to mini-xlr(?) or upgrade these?

 

I would prefer to upgrade to something that would contain silver on the surface or throughout cable and possibly dieelectric biased. (Having difficulty so could use the feedback a bit.)

If I find myself with the Annies still, I'll go and make another round of loans to Nameless, and a few others. Probably MattTCG, and maybe even ask purrin to measure it.
