Either I get a good dac and start copying over music onto my laptop and just be satisfied with the iphone for portable use; else get a good sounding hi-fi(ish) DAP and again use the iphone for day to day listening. 

 

I definitely wouldn't EDC a DAP in addition to my iPhone...

 

 

I'm in the same situation, and I've come to a conclusion that DX50 is the way to go for me, unless the reviews are negative...

I'll hope for that with you. smile.gif


Crap. I forgot about the DX50... I can't get both...

Hi guys!

 

Has anyone here tried the Apple In-Ears? After reading Rin's analysis on them, I'm quite intrigued and now having second thoughts whether I should get the S2 or the Apple In-Ears. I've searched past threads on them but they don't really provide detailed impressions and comparisons to other good sounding IEMs. Any impressions on those is highly appreciated.

Cheers!

I know no one has heard it yet but do you guys know if the geek dac will have any bass, or will it be an "audiophile" sound?  I'm guessing since the based it of the davinci it would have some type of similar sound. Was the davinci bassy at all or was it neutral?

Btw, I already repackaged the S2, like new. Drop me a price and we'll go from there. wink.gif

But pshhh android lag? Thats so 2012 (i honestly have no clue dont quote me on that lol). Yeah lets not get into an android vs iPhone thing... That never turns out well lol.

PS what the heck are you using a 2.2 ghz phone is pretty ridiculous

= nah was just messin' with ya'. I don't own apple or android, don't like both for numerous reasons. My Nokia N9 with Meego OS lags even with 1gb of ram cuz damn Nokia burned their own platform for evil Windows. What a shame, cuz it's a crazy nice OS just like WebOS even though it's only their 1st/ final edition. Hope Nokia comes to their senses and go back to it later on but i ain't holding my breath. rolleyes.gif

Check out the kickstarter vid on the geek for your answer. The dac will have bass.

I had the original version and it was cold and clinical to my ears, with a distinct lack of bass. Not sure if the newer version is improved.

Thanks for the feedback!

I saw the measurements on innerfidelity and they're quite impressive.

But coming from a warm signature preference (H200, Basso, and XBA3) I guess I'll be right at home with the S2?

It appears that the DX50 has the same DAC chip as the fiio x3... And while implementation plays a big part in sound quality, it is my understanding that they would sound pretty similar because of it. Initial reviews of the x3 say that it is only a little better in overall sound quality than the latest iPod nano/classic so I'm not sure if its worth the effort of buying the dx50 as an improvement over the various i devices I have now.

The graph does look really good. Perfectly extended on both ends and almost ruler flat below 1k. I'd be curious to hear the new version.

yeah, but they also said it was mainly the AMP in the x3 that was warm and sounded off for some... also, ibasso house sound is said to be different, so if you'd like to know how the DX50 sounds, refer to the amp/dac offerings with the same dac chip from ibasso... should make more sense than making conclusions based on a DAP from different company. I'm pretty sure that ibasso will sound different from the x3 and the feature set seems to be more user friendly on the dx50 compared to the x3. only time will tell which one is "better", but fortunately for us - we won't have to wait that long to hear from the users :)

What do you guys think of the ATH-CKS99 and how do they compare to the head phones I have?
