As far as the DAC talk - I'll be skipping on the geek. It's definitely interesting but I have zero use for anything above 24/96 coz the difference in sq is so minor it can't justify the file size to save its life.  At the most i might pick up the new asynchronous Hifimediy to test it

 

 I'm interested in that one too, let us know if you get it.

I would be more interested in that geek dac if it could be also used as a portable amp/dac thing with your mp3 players/ smartphones. Some has stated that it might work as an external dac with smartphones via a OTG cable??? Hope that's true. Fingers crossed!!! popcorn.gif

Hmmm interesting, maybe you can send it to the nutman for an audition??? Mochill should be all over this thing then, dat Indian national pride!!! C'mon chill show me whatcha got. ksc75smile.gif

You better sell that C3 of yours ASAP or it's gonna be worthless soon, i'll take it off your hands for $50. tongue.gif

 

So worthless, and yet so priceless - I am in no hurry to lose the C3/BH combo my friend :)

Has anybody given the Sony MDR-EX210 a listen?
13.5mm drivers in each ear for just $25 off Amazon! Sounds insane. 

post #13403 of 32892

They've been on my list for a long time now, there's not a lot on them. They can be had for $16 or so on ebay as well.  I'll try it out again at some point.

I have, I was fairly unimpressed.  The bass lacked control and the clarity wasn't great.  Reasonable for a $25 headphone perhaps, but IMHO not worth it when there are headphones like the 3590/FX40 floating around for cheaper.  Burn in might have improved them a bit but I returned them after two days.

It will be a higher end Dap from Fiio.. Supposedly will be released towards the end of this year. It will be I am gonna guess around $300-$400 depending on components..

Interesting. I will send you a PM I will check em out. Thanks for the offer Shane. Never heard an earphone from India. Could this be the beginning of a new wave of Phones from the 2rd most populated country in the world? Could India be the next hotbed of new edgy but cheap headphone manufacturers?.

I'm planning on getting the X5 as it becomes available for pre-order. Fingers crossed.

And yeah, those look to be really interesting, not sure how I feel about it being bass forward but the packaging and build alone is amazing. Casing made from a single block of bronze, wooden housing. Mmmmm aesthetics.

I just noticed there's a slot for $139 for the Geek which has opened up. Someone grab it!

Not no mores. Someone snapped that up quick like.

Dsnuts

 

 

you should also get the DX50. you know you want it. you could be one of those who has both x3 and DX50 and make a good comparison. (and make me feel better about choosing DX50 over the X3) biggrin.gif

 

oh and btw - how does the xb90ex sound out from the X3? is there too much warmth in tandem, or does the x3 underline the greatness of the XB90EX's prowess? Sony has a pretty wide soundstage but the depth isn't as much as the width, so maybe the X3 which is said to be deeper than wider will make a good coupling with Sonys? That "black background" (or as I understand it, no hiss whatsoever) might also help the xb90ex...

post #13410 of 32892
Honestly, the xb90ex is quite a different iem compared to most of all these new iems lately, which are meant to be more balanced. The xb just throws bass at you...

Also i do wonder if there are any bassier and more controlled iems on the market currently smily_headphones1.gif
