Very cool doc! Great prices happening for them now it seems. They sure are nice looking on-ears. As much as I think the M500's are beautiful, they are somewhat bold looking and I'm not sure that I am cool enough to wear them out and about lol. I wonder how the 90's sound compared to the M500's? That would be an interesting comparison.

Onkyo's and KEF's motto: go big or go home!

I wear them occasionally, they're actually pretty tame compared to something like the Diamond Tears or even JVC's Full-sized cans.

I'm finding these IE-HF300s somewhat v-shaped out of the box; or rather that the mids are somewhat recessed.

 

These are definitely vented - they sound open backed almost like the grados i used to have.

You got the headphones or the earphones.? Wish they would call them something completely different.. The headphones have a much laid back sound vs the earphones but the earphones are definitely mid forward..Almost too much so on open listen. It was that way for me at least..I was getting shoutiness happening. Both need a good burn in. Don't know how long it takes for titanium drivers to burn in on the headphones the earphones should improve even over night.

Highly recommended to upgrade firmware. More bug fixes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyakrf9URcA&list=PLwVIrRPoDClqsbZWM7I6v4xq_Zt8sQkeX&index=1

Wait! Did I just read that they fixed the issue where if you had too many sub-folders that your music wouldn't show up? :O Because if they did, I definitely know what my next audio purchase will be.

Another cable for the X1! They even have a specific option for the X1 on their cable (I know it's just a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable but it's still pretty cool)
Looks really high quality, might snap one up since the Zu is no longer available :\

Love it :) 
Really chill and relaxed

 

 

ALSO: What's a good portable solution for driving the X1 out of my laptop? Looking for a good dac + amp that's relatively affordable...

post #13899 of 32858

Guys, I have an issue. My computer is on the floor to the right of my chair as I cannot fit it on top of the desk. My problem is the wire on any IEMs / headphone I use ends up getting caught underneath the right chair arm and there's been times when I've forgot and went to turn my chair left to get up to go to the toilet or whatever and the jack has either ripped out of the 3.5mm port on the front of my PC or the earbuds get ripped out of my ears.

You can check FiiO E07K or E17

Just get an extension cord like this -

Thanks Jakkal
Is it even worth upgrading from my MBP 2011 output to E17? Any significant changes in SQ?

post #13902 of 32858

Are the S2's worth it even just powering them by a smartphone?

MBP? MacBook Pro? I'm not familiar with MBP integrated audio, but for sure E17 is better AMP and is portable so you can use it with your DAP as well.

Someone in the HTC One thread posted great synergy between S2 and the One.

I have the Galaxy Note II which is pretty good for a smartphone in terms of audio output. Not as good as the more recent releases like the HTC One and Galaxy S4 but it's not far off the iphone 5.
