The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 928

As of today, a seller on AliExpress is having a 9 day, 50% discount, resulting in a price of $102.63 for the IHIFI760. This new portable audiophile music player, for those of you who aren't yet aware, supposedly has the audio chops to perform just as well as the Fiio X3. There is some talk in this thread about it, but, until now, only a user or two at a Russian forum have offered substantial feedback.

 

EDIT: AliExpress is confirmed to be legit. Thanks squallkiercosa for the information!

 

EDIT2: Just to reconfirm squallkiercosa's buyer's experience, AliExpress has a form of buyer's protection very much like what you would find on eBay.

 

Noticed this on the Deals Thread III, some people think it may be competitive with the X3, any interest out there? :biggrin:

I've dealt with Aliexpress before, they are reliable.

Here's a few impressions with different phones

I'm using the viper4android app on my HTC One and the S2's sounds really great in that combo.

V4A is not a player. It's supposed to work great with Poweramp (I use it with Neutron). Google viper4android and try it out. It's free so nothing to loose.

hmmm, that little DAP looks quite good. I would get it just out of an interest, especially at this price, but sadly, I'm saving up for something else (Also sadly, it too is audio related :| this hobby's gonna drive me mad)

OK, haven't done this before, forgive the poor pictures-iPad->email->upload, probably would be better quality with my digital camera, but thought this would be easier to manage (actually didn't really turn out that way).

Anyway, I'm not the headphone guru DS, Dannybai, EricP10, and the other SUPREMUSes (?SUPREMI?) out there are, but I've listened to good gear for a long time, and am amassing a rediculous collection of headphones over the past year or so, so here goes. This is a matter of taste, of course, what your sonic preferences are, but I think these Martin Logan's are the real deal, especially at what look to be current prices. I think they are probably worth the $300 list (though, at that price and, I'm not sure price and "worth" is so easily correlated. Suffice to say I think they are competitive with the phones I've heard in the $100-$400 range, though that is by no means an exhaustive list, pretty much what's in my profile). At the discounted prices, I think they are worth it even if you HATE the sound preference, just for the look and feel of them (the leather is the best looking/feeling I've come across outside of expensive furniture). Here's the package:

 

O

 

Nice solid box, feels like luxury when you first open it...

 

 

Not sure how easy it is to see, but the case us actually black, leatherette (not like the headphones), solid but light, has a little pocket inside that holds the removable cable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here they are, definitely the ones I own I'd most like to be seen outside in! As I mentioned earlier, they aren't bass monsters, they are very finicky as to how you position them (even slightly off and you lose the bass, it is there when on correctly, controlled, rhythmical, but less than my Senn 650's or AT A900x in amount, going from memory, haven't directly compared yet). The design in on ear, ane the cups angle forward in a funny way and have slight angle as well. They do clamp a bit tightly as well, some might find this all uncomfortable, I'm usually very sensitive to all this (and like iem's better as a result, though fit on those is another story), but, in my short time with them, haven't found comfort to be a major issue. LOTS of detail, imaging, fun IMO

More people should be looking into the Fidelio S1 - significantly cheaper than the S2, and according to Joker only a very small difference in sound quality.

post #13916 of 27236

I've also been wondering about the S1-S2 seems to get all the love around these parts, don't recall evan a mention of the junior iem (of course, got swept up in the hype train, have S2's on the way...)

I think the problem with the S1 is the many reports of bad build. The S2 is extremely well built while there's a lot of reports of issues with the S1 (apparently there's many people having trouble with some kind of plastic ring getting broken).

Man i hope that things sounds as good as the X3s and the DX50s. Fingers crossed, cuz it doesn't hurt to have more options even though i am not really looking for a new DAP................................... yet. :ph34r:

I found the Colorfly C3 on sale from the same seller for $52 shipped. I bit, but may take up to a month for me to receive it
