Have you tried the X3 line out into one of your better amps? Curious if you notice the same thing. Of course, could be synergy again, the X3/ALO National may have a thing going, haven't tried it with other amps. It does make me suspect the difference is in the amp part, though, whether it is coloration, power, or something else, as bypassing it makes it great sounding in my set up. (in other words, the DAC is 1st rate, the amp is very nice, but has some issues of some sort).

 

If I'm no at 100 hours on the Cardas,I'm pretty damn close. The more you burn them in the less basshead the IEM sounds. It's more mid-centric, but with more bass than the RE400. Lots of space and detail. It's best when adequately amped. I have settled on an Audiofly wide AF56 tip (I still find the wider the tip the better the sound on the EM5813.

V6 with the BTG silver plated cable and DX50 is an excellent combination.

The Cardas I meant is the Cardas mini to mini interconnect, not too expensive on Amazon. The iem is on my wish list, one of these days.
The BTG cable was what I was using between the X3 and the ALO National, it was really nice, but the Cardas has supplanted wit.

What a shoot out, Dallas vs Denver, who'd a thunk...looks like it might be over, though.

Went to a fun show today...Honeymoon In Vegas, doing a run at the Paper Mill Theater, before going to Broadway. tony Danza, fun show! Got a standing ovation, which isn't so unusual, but half the audience @ Paper Mill is elderly, and I didn't think they COULD get up...at least it meant much more than the usual standing ovation would!
post #15142 of 32903

had to actually put down my headphone rigs to see the second half of that game DALLAS VS DENVER

one of the great offensive NFL games of all times...wow, too bad anybody had to lose...but the Broncos

came through at the end...what spectacular passing and catching by both teams....five stars....

 

back at the rig, the ONKYOS ism are singing through the new E12 and sounding very dynamic and rich

theyve dropped off the discovdry radar, but im holding on to mine even as i burn in the X1s and the 1Ks

and wait for the DX50....glorious headphone daze.....

My experience with cheap Micro SD cards is they do not last long. Last year I bought a "Samsung" 32gb Class 10 Micro SD of ebay, it was about half the price that an actual samsung would be, it worked perfectly to its rated capacity and speed, but it just died after several months. I think the cheap SD cards are made from sub par flash memory and are not gonna last to long.

post #15144 of 32903

Yeah I wouldn't buy one of those. I've heard many stories of the speeds being slow (ie fake class 10) and reliability issues. But still, good luck :P

Nah, that's not the main problem. The problem is that most cards branded like 64GB are usually rebranded 2-4GB cards that can't hold that much memory in reality. Price is not such a factor. Actually, I've had issues with Sandisk cards and I've had both a 32GB and a 64GB micro sd cards locked and just becoming unusable after a very short time and both were $90+ at the time I bought them. I would have never said this a few years ago but adata are just destroying sandisk with their quality.

So let me say this right quick. I have the R3 in my ears (thanks to the head-fier who let me sample it). It's so close to being something special from first listening, but it isn't quite there. There is an annoying echo in the vocals that needs to be fix. For the most part, it's a pretty nice and unique sounding IEM. Much more refined than the R1. And ironically, I'm one of the few who really liked the R1, just felt it needed to be refined more. Anyway, I have the R3 and another brainwavz to sample (I'm not sure which model it is). More thoughts later.

post #15147 of 32903

Oh, the R3 is so comfortable to me, but talking about Frankenstein bolts! The TF10 has nothing on these! lol  ... Yet, I would still wear it out in public (I have no shame). lol

So says the guy that won't wear his M500's out in public! :p

The R3 looks like bombs hanging in the ear LOL.

I like their sound but they are definitely on the polite side. More for longer listening sessions where you don't want to be fatigued from wearing them.
