I happen to be blessed with a $2000 desktop amp that has been laying around my house forever, but it's not like I can carry that cinder block around in my backpack. My main concern is well, other peoples opinions. I was so confident after reading up on them for a month that the Turbine Gold's would suffice my every current IEM need, but I either received a defective product or I was mislead. Things appeal to everybody in different ways, and I really just wish I lived in an area with a broader range of products to try out. If I go to AT's office, I'll see how that goes and probably decide from there.


If you listen with an iPhone from 4s to 5s you don´t Need an amp, not only with EPH-100 or Dunu´s, I use mainly Sennheiser IE80 and Grado GR10, straight to the phone and it works brilliant, I also have the EPH-100 and you can´t go wrong with them, the Dunu`s may look the better alternative if you find the extra´s important. The EPH-100 is not a bass Monster but all is there when you Need it, I listen mainly to prog-avant rock , like Primus, Chrome Hoof, Magma, classic Yes, where the bass is in a somethimes dominant role, and you all get it from the Yamaha´s, Later you can also think of the AK10 dac-amp for some extra bottom,better Separation,in short the AK10 makes everything a Little better than your phone does, but starting with the Yams or Dunu´s will not dissapoint you.

Yeah, sadly at this point in time I don't have a nice phone to run things off of. I'd assume half of my listening time would be through my computer, and half would be on the go. I have what I'll call a decent mp3 player.. but in terms of being a good source of music that isn't good. Once money starts coming in though, I'll likely get a good phone/ other DAP. Was looking at some of the Fiio products.

If you want a decent DAP you can't go wrong with a Clip+. Also you won't need an amp. Period. Even if you want it for a bass boost, just get Rockbox and EQ it. An amp would be a waste of money unless you were running power hungry headphones off it, in which case you wouldn't be using them on the go.

 

EDIT: I mean that you defo won't need one for the EPH 100s or most other IEMs, although the Dunus I don't know, I've heard they might do better with one.

I gather these members mentioning no amps have both owned Dunu DN-1000 and tried some amping? You've heard them and they don't benefit at all have you? I can tell you now despite thier low 10ohm impedance they scale up well with some amping. Now remember, I never said an amps required for ALL IEM I merely recommend one for the Dunu.

Now please tell me you've tried them.

I meant that he wouldn't need it for an EPH-100. Maybe I was being a little unclear.

For DAP's, I have two GoGear Vibes. One is a smaller, fatter model SA1VBE04K (4gb) that is apparrently $50 MSRP. The second one is a longer slimmer 4gb whose model number I cant seem to identify. I know price doesn't exactly mean anything, but I'm going to assume the first one is of decent quality? The second one I think was only $20, so I'm not too sure about it. If you guys happen to have any knowledge of these, that would prove helpful.

Not sure is it ok to ask here,but i was wondering was yamaha leaning to the bright or dark side? Im currently looking for a good SQ mp3 player, have surf in the internet about Cowon i9+ ,i10 ,J3 and S9. Not sure which would be the best that suit this yamaha, I'm more into clarity and instrument separation. Any other mp3 you guys would recommand? Would love to have a expansion slot too. :o

I would say they are rather neutral and if you have an iPhone 4s up to 5s, that is all you need

Currently using a Sony Xperia V, as i was wondering if a standalone mp3 player would have better SQ than phone chip? So i don't really need to a dedicated mp3 player to have its full potential ? Or am i just being paranoid about SQ?

Mp3 player are soundwise no better, only the more expensive Hi Res players. The Sony Z2 should also sound very good if you want to stick to them. The EPH-100 is neutral but not unforgiving when listening to not so well recorded music , so don't bother to much, and have fun listening

Alright then =D Thx man. I thought of this when im using my laptop and phone,the sound sounds very much different . From the laptop, vocal is very loud and bright,but the bass is distorted. While on my phone (Seems its using qualcomm DAC),bass was nice but the vocal were pretty dull. So im just wondering does the sound card (DAC) does play a role in this situation.

Hi everyone this is Kevin and it is my first post. I've been doing some research over the past few days for in ear headphones to listen to music on daily commute to and from school. I listen to mostly 90s pop and pop right now, as well as some rap. So, I really was interested in the Yamaha eph 100. But then, I read about some defects of people's posts I'm 2012 about the right earphone losing sound. I was just wondering if people are still getting this problem in 2014 or did Yamaha fix it. This information would be much appreciated as I may be looking to purchase in a week or so.

Thanks, Kevin
