I was thinking the carbo bassos but i'm not really sure what level their sound. all the reviews i've read are positive but it's a little FOTM-ish. not to mention importing them is a pain and they won't get here in time for his birthday - which is something of a damper.

 

Do more people have the S2 now?

 

As far as the bassos are concerned, imo they are not FOTM material (believe me, I've been there). But the Bassos are really quite good - I won't ever be letting go of mine. If he is discerning, he will like them. Time to get them from amazon japan is about 1.5 weeks (a few days to get from amazon to tenso, a few days to wait for tenso to ship, and 5 or 6 days to get them from tenso).

 

I don't have the S2's, but I doubt you could go wrong with them based on the reviews and impressions I've read.  Or the TDK BA200 which you can snag on amazon.com now for $120.

I've also stated many times that I like DIFFERENT sound signatures (although the AS-2 and H-200 happen to be my favorites right now). And the V6.

Sure, I know - just following your posts and also your list of fave phones, you do lean a bit more towards 'fun' (in the meaningful sense) than analytical transparency. So far I've seen the RE-400 championed more by people from the clarity camp, but maybe it's Hifiman's crossover phone thanks to having more bass than their previous ones.

I'll give them a comparo when I get back home. I will say though that I am guilty of liking the IE-500's quite a bit as well (just don't tell Sf!).

Won't get there before his birthday?

My Tenores got to me in 4 working days from the day of order at Amazon JP. That's pretty remarkable.

Oh and all the Zero Audio reviews are true, they are stellar IEMs for the price. Nothing FOTM about them at all.

Well I did ask Amazon for next day delivery.

I was still pretty amazed at the Tenso turnaround.
post #11290 of 32903
I typically get things in 4-5 days using amazon Japan and Tenso once I place am order.

The Basso's and Tenore's are not fxz100-200 or even several AT's and not FOTM

I'm getting tired of swapping iem's/headphones in my amp when ab'ing them. I know that there are good and inexpensive gizmos out there that would allow you to have multiple headphones plugged into it at once (with the gizmo plugged into the amp).

 

Anyone have any gizmo recommendations?

Belkin Splitter..I have one on my burn in station. I can burn in 5 phones at once or do abcdeing.

 

  My Audinst MX2 has 2 headphones out. It is my A/Bing dac amp of choice but the belkin comes in handy for guys juggling phones.

Awesome Ds! I suppose the Belkin Splitter doesn't degrade the SQ at all (or very much), so it looks like it would do the trick nicely.

 

Btw, I just threw on my AD900X's for some trance (been a little while - using them mainly for TV/movies). And you know what? I still love them. I do wish that they had a detachable cable (so that I could put a shorter one on), but that really is about my only niggle I have about them. The SQ is sure lovely. Are yours getting any love now that those big bad X1's have shown up?

indeed, it does not degrade anything, but there will be volume differenfes between phones since it doesnt drive all phones, so watch out for the least sensitive/high impedance phones
