Being a member at head-fi, especially if subscribed to this thread, there is quite a risk "to go overdrive" I'm afraid! ;)

I've decided that it could be a bit 'sharp' since I wanted detail, but I never wanted to go overdrive, so I was wondering if any of you could recommend me anything...

Actually, with the "without too much bass" comment has NT-6 written all over it, not NT-6 pro.  And then get the Whiplash Hybrid V3 cable with it, which pushes the clarity past the NT-6 pro!

@joe

i haven't bought proper speakers so far so i wouldn't know which system is cheaper.. btw..I'll be able to listen to a stax system in the near future - it will be an interesting comparison I think. did you have the chance to listen to a hd 800 or he-6?

 

I have heard the HD800, but not the HE-6 and own the LCD-2.

There are hobbies that are much more expensive than this one.  I have a friend that bought 2 jet skis and a hauler recently because he is done with his dirt bike riding hobby after a bone-breaking spill.

Is there any cable that will make the nt6 pros clearer than the nt6s again? Or does the whiplash just make the nt6 better than the pro? Maybe I should tell hidition to switch my pro order to the regular nt6?

@joe What was your impression of the HD 800? I couldn't hear it properly but it sounded quite distant, like a concert hall.

Woah, guys, as my name suggests, I'm still a rookie, which means I'm not even an average audiophile, but from my experiences, I'd be looking for a custom version of the Heir Audio 4.Ai (except the 4.A itself), and maybe the sound quality to be multiplied proportionally... and one more thing, since I'm not even a standard audiophile, I have no chance of hearing the HD800 or anything else, not headphones, that's for sure...
post #3366 of 4815
Well, thanks, smily_headphones1.gif
post #3367 of 4815

So you like the Heir 4.Ai but don't want the real 4.A custom version? Any particular reasoning behind that?

post #3368 of 4815

No, it's just because I wanted the same sound signature at a higher level of quality, if there is such a thing, :) maybe with more drivers and more "high-end" ;)

I've considered the NT6, not the Pro, maybe not for me,... but yeah, thanks ;)

A few updates...the Fit-Ear PS-5 review is here, and some additional sources are in house.

 

 

I just received the DX50, so I really can't comment just yet other than it seems nice upon first use.

 

The AK120 is quite impressive in many ways, from the size to the interface to the speed to the memory capability.  I will post more thoughts after I get some more ear time with it.

Wow, both ciem and daps are very exciting AJ. Looking forward to read your impressions about the sources.

Yep, knowing that it sounds the best of all of these...at least with balanced card.

Thanks, Joe, you might recall I asked head-fiers about the PS5, 18 months or so ago

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/593594/fitear-mh334-vs-fit-ear-ps-5-can-anyone-shed-any-light-on-this-please

 

and I recall you briefly remarking, a few months back, on having heard the PS5, but it's nice to finally see a full review of it :smile:

 

 

 

 

I must say, the MPD (multi-purpose device) sounds like an interesting product, albeit not one for the purists here on Head-fi...

post #3375 of 4815
I am not sure what the point of the mpd is...is it not like the Shure Push-to-hear device?
