How do you know the ridges are on the right? They're on the left with most phones.

With the Pistons the ridges are on the right earpiece.

The real Piston has a blank smooth stem on the left, and raised ridges on the lower part of the right stem. This is how I can quickly tell what side is which in the dark. I'm sure there's other little things to distinguish?

 This :p

 

By the way IEM, you are approaching the 1000 post mark REAL soon!! :D

With me having a Xonar DG sound card, will I need an amp/DAC or just an amp? Not too sure what to get for my IEMs and M-Audio Q40s (Basically low impedance IEMs and 64 Ohm headphones). Looks like the Geek will be delayed a bit, not sure of any other 'smaller' options will suffice. I usually plug my IEMs/headphones into the front audio port on my computer so I'm not sure where I'd put the amp or whatever.

Because a very reliable source on head-fi who lives in China said that's how the Piston do it. Just like Americans drive on the right side of the road, and Europeans and others the left side.

Do not throw away that hard paper package because on it are instructions for wrapping it on the holder and the L/R orientation saying that the ridged one is the right. I was scratching my head when I got it because the two sides were *almost* identical until I reviewed the package.

There are other things written but I do not know how to read Chinese.

The Q40s should be fine. Low impedance IEMs might be a problem because of the output on the DG.

If you're getting funny issues (ex. audible hum) you may need an external DAC.

Got my H3s tonight. They sound so lush and full from the get go..Will have more on them once I get some burn in happening.

 

And yes these are tuned similar to my SRH1540s..Exactly what I was looking for!!

I post this in the DN-1000 thread.

 

Dunu announce that DN-2000 will be release after February 2014 base on this announcement using Google translate and someone from China has a review on it already. The review includes lots of pictures too.

I might come out of retirement for the Fostex if they build up enough warranted hype? Otherwise..DUNU forever?!


Are you sure about that? I just post about the DN-2000 which is releasing in February. I hope it come with detachable cable so that I change the cable with a mic.

congratulations  you got what you wanted!  looking forward DS to your review....

since Geek Plus delayed, i went ahead and got the Audioquest Dragonfly v1.2 dad  delivered today.  out of the box

sounds muddy and constrained, like music is squeezing through it. they recommend at least 20 hrs of burn in, but

I'm sure more than that would be more better.  my ol version 1.0 has thousands of yours on it and it just flows music

like water downhill.  can't wait to hear it sing with the new circuit and power improvements!
