^ NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

 

Fufufufufufufufufufufufufufufufu Danny say it ain't so, say it ain't so. :triportsad:

^ No worries meng, peps are gonna unload those FiiO X3s and other FiiO products like mad when those X5s hit the market. hoho Then these prices will be the norm soon. Would have hop on it myself since i saw it earlier but not really feeling the looks of the X3 and already have E17 so......

 

Yeah my bad should have given ya'll a heads up sooner but was too busy testing the gears. haha

 

The E17s can be had for $80 and under these days......

 

Plus the newer FiiO lineups are much better..

 

So no rush.

 

:)

 

edit: also i think FiiO is coming out with a revised version of the E17s so stayed tuned, like i said no rush, i am just waiting for that $100 FiiO X1s to hit the market. haha

Just wait a bit more like i said cuz there is gonna be a revised version of the E17 soon to hit the market so the old version might drop even more in price. Not sure when it will be release cuz i read it somewhere here in the forums passingly only so........

For those that feel that these Logans sounds a bit thin/lean in the bass department if you have a powerful DAP/AMP that has a clean and warm sound such as the FiiO X3s or the E12 it might just make these Logans sound very musical even with the stock cable. There seems to more changes in sound from change of amps/dacs than from cable changes. Well at least the changes in sound is more dramatic with sources...... 

 

Hn, E12, hnnnnn, hnnn :smile:

^ haha just a guesstimation based on how gears normally gel, and my experience with the E17 dac vs. the Audinst dac on the Logans. 

 

You should be pretty set source wise Masa' WAYNE. That C3 and E12, or even that lowly BH amp should in theory sound amazing with these Logans.

 

But you ain't gots dat GODLY Vali though. :tongue_smile:

Not sure if I missed it but how would you say they compare with the Heaven V?

To be brutally honest, the Vali is great but i wasn't completely floored nor mind blown by it. Maybe it has to do with my weak sauce dacs, but i am not hearing this so call "wetness" factor in them. The amp on my Audinst although not as powerful sound pretty similar, but since i am using the Audinsts dac with the Vali as well it makes sense. haha :duggfloat:

 

Was hoping to hear that they will make my gears sound liquidity, silky smooth and refined or something like that but not hearing it. LoL

 

Thought it seems pretty damn neutral/ uncolored/ transparent for a tube amp, but it is solid state variant so.......

The V Aging is on loan right now but I did have a listen comparing it to the VI and there's a big difference in sound. TE-05's bass is lighter and tighter. VI's have bigger bass and thicker, more lush midrange. Treble is close in details but the VI's sounds better and more refined. Overall stage is better on the VI's as well. I'll have the non-V Aging V's in a day or two to compare and I'll post a better impression.

Thanks Danny, looking forward to it!

They still don't match the value of the M-80 that I picked up from Radio Shack for $40, and I couldn't stand wearing those. Gave them as a gift to my sister.

 

The Chinese stuffs is my specialty. If I don't try them, no one will.

 

Take a look at this bad boy that just came out a few days ago:

 

Senmai HD-900 ~$70

http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.1vBLdf&id=36528803387

 

and this:

Somic MM185 ~$50

http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3.w4011-3256831387.76.lqyKyS&id=36979108206&rn=39f9b881887822980c5bc433580fa1b5

 

They look far more appealing to me to try out. I also don't trust items being discontinued without a follow up newer item being announced.


A couple things holding me back from Mikros 90:

 

1.  Living in Canada just means I have to jump through hoops to get proper value.  I have a pretty small budget -- Mikros even at the lowest reported price would be the most I've ever paid for a headphone.  But paying the prices we have here for them, or finding a way to buy them in the US and shipping will still push it well above what everyone else is paying for it.. and that just feels wrong to me regardless of whether or not they are worth it. 

2.  I think someone said it was impossible to wear glasses with the Mikros 90.  I have enough trouble keeping my S400's on with glasses for more than an hour, and I've already changed the pads.

 

Also.. I refuse to succumb to the peer pressure!!
