I've not heard either of these phones.... I was just trying to be a good soldier by referring you to DannyBai's answer to this exact same question posed by peter123 a few pages ago. As both of you are interested in these, you might want to contact peter123 to share information.

 

Cheers

Hey wait a minute - you can't "out impulse buy" me! Man that hurts. I might just have to back up your play lol! Have to add $40 (probably) for tenso though, so that will stop me until after I eat dinner at least...

That's a steal at 90+. I paid close to 160 for mine. You should have bought a few and sold them here. wink.gif

Just saw it: Get it September 10, 2013.


..... Yeah, can't wait that long.

You should buy the Onkyo headphone with the cheaper cable and then buy a pure Silver cable with a Rhodium jack from me. :D

Managed to get the Onkyo headphones for $123 shipped to Australia and the earphones for $90. Ordered on the 16th of July. Both are the HF300 versions.

Where did you find them at such a price? Link please. tongue.gif Now that I've got a little of the IEMs' taste I'm considering the Headphones.

Amazon but the price went up. I was very lucky to get my foot in first.
post #12383 of 32910
Darn, I paid quite a deal more for my Ie-hf300, and the price is at a stable 160-170usd from Japanese sellers for the Headphones. Curse my inability to find good deals!

I wonder what the new Fiio cable is like in real life, and if it's compatible with the Onkyo's http://www.fiio.com.cn/products/index.aspx?ID=100000042938762&MenuID=105026014

those look so good, I might just buy whatever with detachable cables just to get those and put them on :D

Afaik, the ES-HF300 is using a new type of connector. Which some complain to be rather hard to plug-in or remove. Onkyo also seems to be releasing both the cable as a sort of upgrade, and an alternate version of the 6N ones with a built in mic and volume control which is to be released in the near future.

hey guys.

 

I kinda remember that someone here was talking about these:

 

http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=87

 

Have any one of you had any experience with these? they sound any good?

As I understand, the internals are the same as the little inline USB powered HiFimeDIY Sabre USB DAC.

The primary difference appears to be that you get a nice chassis and you can power it with a separate, but not included, power supply. Also, the output is coaxial rather than 3.5mm. But otherwise, the sound should be identical, don't you think?

Well, I haven't tried this version but that was actually discussed long before it even came out on another forum where people were talking how it should have a USB isolator chip and that it will be better and cleaner and they were making by themselves pretty much what this version is from the original HiFimeDIY. And I know it was quite expensive to do that as a DIY project, so this version is actually cheap for what it is but I have no idea if it sounds different although theoretically it should be a bit better but you do loose portability and have to use a RCA to 3.5mm female adapter to connect headphones but I guess if you're going to use it with a desktop rig it might probably be the better choice of the two.

post #12390 of 32910

I'm thinking about getting one (because I don't have any good source gear) and I figured I might start with a good desktop DAC... the price goes up to 85$ with the power supply, which is the same as the price for fiio e07k or e17 (if you add a little bit). So I can't really decide what to get...
