Just listened to dr. Chesky binaural headphone trackscthru dx90/tpeos h300. That is some incredible stuff. Reordered jvcfx850, should be here end of week. This dx90 sounds so open and spacious, remarkable.

I fell in love with this song all over again. It's been 2 years since I found it but Wow does the FX850 breathe new life into it

The DNA Pro's I bought were fake. A horribad fake at that where one said had a female 3.5mm jack and the other side actually had a non-detachable cable. Luckily I should easily be able to get refunded.

Having crappy audio karma...first, Krell KSL preamp died on me. Got a replacement, needed a phono stage so had to wait a while to play turntable. When phono stage arrived, plugged in, power supply for Linn turntable died, checked with dealer, replacement (and upgrade to current specs) will be about a kazillion bucks mad.gif OK, managing with CD player and Squeezebox, had brother in law over today, tried to play him a CD, cd player died as well. (nothing special, HHB CDR-850 I got used some years back when the transport of my 2 part CD player died, couldn't be fixed). Now what? Preamp has DA converter (Peachtree, very nice unit), and eventually i'm getting the Geek garbage (all the Geek you can get), so I'm thinking I just need something that can function as a transport, can feed the Peachtree. Read some about an older Oppo unit, DV-970HD, was supposed to be a really good transport, very inexpensive (especially now, not in production I believe, used on ebay for a song-of course, my ebay track record so far isn't stellar...).

OK, another Dogwalk Discovery, hadn't heard this in quite a while, angelic voice, this man.

I just watched this video in the best looking people thread. I thought I would share.

Wut? The best way to take that video in is with your best phones..Who cares about the two women with what looks like scientifically perfect proportions for the female anatomy and beauty that is 11 on a 10 scale! It is all about the upbeat music they are playing in the background.

It does punch above the $200 cost point at MSRP..It is on a similar playing field as the ICON dac and my NFB-5. Which is quite an accomplishment considering this sound and power comes from a sound card the size of a pack of gum. Some crazy good engineering on these Geeks. It has two headphone outs. One being 47Ohm for higher impedance cans and .47 Ohm for lower impedance and earphones..

 

I have been using my Doppios of all phones on it as it pairs extremely well with the Geek Out. The surprising thing was I threw the Doppios on there as it was my most sensitive earphone to test the noise floor on the unit and it hasn't left the Geek Out since.  Getting a nice burn in at the moment.

 

Compared to the DX90. There is a Sabre family resemblance in sound but the DX90 is superior in just about all aspects of sound. The Geek Out is leaning more toward a consumer friendly tuning more than the audiophile tuned DX90. Meaning it has more bass emphasis and sounds more intimate. Where the Geek Out is really surprising is that it has a very pleasing yet technical sound tuning on it to where it will sound right for all types of music. Sound scope is done very well on the Geek Out. The DX90 has better separation and layered depth with a touch wider stage, results of the more sophisticated dual sabre dac and amp chips implementation. Otherwise I consider the Geek Out a very worthy portable dac amp to use with your laptops.


Thanks for this.

I was just going off what james444 told me via PM:

 

"Hi there, yes fit may be a concern in your case, since their housings are pretty large. Particularly if you like to wear them downwards. A friend of mine with smaller ears tried my FX850/750 and he had less issues with them over-ear. The nozzle is angled in a way that places the earpieces almost parallel to your ear in that case, and you don't have to fit the whole diameter of the housing. For some reason he even preferred the 850 over 750 for comfort.

 

But downwards and small ears is potentially problematic, sorry to say."

 

Out of all the IEMs I've used, the XBA-H1 was the only one that the housing size caused a problem. It hasn't been a problem with the SoundMAGIC E10, JVC HA-FX101, Xiaomi Piston or the Zero Audio Carbo Basso.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could help me pick an IEM.

I currently have 3 which I rate as follows: Zero audio carbo basso > Vsonic VSD1 > Sony XBA3 (blasphemy perhaps?)

 

The VSD1's shell is completely broken and I just couldn't fix it.

The Bassos have driver-flex and one side is usually softer than the other now.

I'm left with the XBA3 but I just feel like it's missing something =(

 

I'm not a bass head but I do prefer having it in good quantity and quality. I listen to a mix of music, usually instrumental/classical tracks.

I prefer fun, warm, non-fatiguing IEMs that have a big sound stage.

Comfort, easy fitting and no micro-phonics are important.

 

Though my budget is around $120, I was looking at the Zero audio carbo tenore and the Audio Technica IM70.

Open to other suggestions of course.

If it weren't for the statement in bold letters above, I would've suggested the Brainwavz R3.

They are one of the most overlooked dynamic IEMs in head-fi.

 

For the music you listen to.... the R3 is splendid.

Try asking Joker at his thread. I'm pretty sure he can point out a few suggestions.

 

Goodluck!
