Fiio has been very very good to me, so I'm not going to jump ship, but those Onkyo IEM are a must soon.

^ That's why I went for the C3 where I could have very low expectations as far as functionality goes. And it has lived up to those low functionality expectations lol! Fortunately though (and most importantly) it has also lived up to the SQ expectations.

Looks like the jvc s500's have dropped to about 21 US dollars. Ive never owned headphones before....just in ears.

The iems ive used are the carbo bassos, ath cks99, etc.

^ if you can get them $21 shipped, get 10 of them and run for the hills. Oh and hook me up with one as well, still want a new set of gunmetal S500 Zs cuz my set got some minor cosmetic scratches. :  (

Hey y'all

 

I've recently been looking for an amp and dac to add to be setups. I always am looking for bang for your buck (many purchases based on Dsnuts' raves, thanks btw!!) and I figured this would be a great place to ask.

 

From looking through this thread the two best/cheap dacs I found were the Ele and the hifimediy Sabre. Am I correct in thinking these are the best sub $50 dacs that've discovered? 

 

I wasn't able to find any cheap amps looking through the thread.

I have one of these cmoys on its way to my house: http://www.ebay.com/itm/200940914746?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Is there a cheaper/better option I should consider?

 

I'll also be using these through my Macbook Pro or Iphone 4 so would either of those dacs actually increase SQ significantly?

 

Thanks a bunch!

Unfortunately its not 21 shipped. That would be a dream come true.

Itll be about 31 dollars with shipping and tenso fees.

I just read the last few days of the X3 thread. Not really great reasons for people to be jumping ship imo. From all accounts so far, the X3 will have great SQ (both a great DAC and AMP), for a very reasonable price. Sure, there will be a few glitches to work out with the firmware, but that's to be expected. The people jumping ship were probably just not sure that the purchase was right for them in the first place (as in my case).

Okay what's the best product Dsnuts ever recommended to you? Take out cost, but just the pure enjoyment of the sound. 

 

For me>>>>>> the X1

 

 

He's also recommended some things where I was like WTF? I'll visit one or two or those later. lol  (he's been on more than off though beerchug.gif)

If you can get the S500s new for around $40 shipped they are a steal, even at $70 they are still a great buy.  So if $31 is the total price including the shipping and tenso fees damnnnn these have gotten so cheap, crazy.
