Get a pair of FX750s.Try them out. If they don't fit. I am willing to guarantee you someone will buy them from you at almost no loss..Not a single guy with fit issues on both the FX850 threads by the way. Not one.  Sometimes you just gotta go for it..

I am not sure what is happening with my ears these days. I sent my K545 to Macedonian Hero so can't compare the SRH-1540 to them and also have been using the Momentum On Ear a lot since I sent off the K545 but in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the SRH-1540 I have adjusted my EQ in Media Monkey like the picture. I think its because of the Momentum which has a bit more bass mid bass but won't know for sure until I get the K545 back. For sure both other phones have a slightly less treble energy and I find I have to tone the 1540 down.

Just listened to dr. Chesky binaural headphone trackscthru dx90/tpeos h300. That is some incredible stuff. Reordered jvcfx850, should be here end of week. This dx90 sounds so open and spacious, remarkable.

I fell in love with this song all over again. It's been 2 years since I found it but Wow does the FX850 breathe new life into it

The DNA Pro's I bought were fake. A horribad fake at that where one said had a female 3.5mm jack and the other side actually had a non-detachable cable. Luckily I should easily be able to get refunded.

Having crappy audio karma...first, Krell KSL preamp died on me. Got a replacement, needed a phono stage so had to wait a while to play turntable. When phono stage arrived, plugged in, power supply for Linn turntable died, checked with dealer, replacement (and upgrade to current specs) will be about a kazillion bucks mad.gif OK, managing with CD player and Squeezebox, had brother in law over today, tried to play him a CD, cd player died as well. (nothing special, HHB CDR-850 I got used some years back when the transport of my 2 part CD player died, couldn't be fixed). Now what? Preamp has DA converter (Peachtree, very nice unit), and eventually i'm getting the Geek garbage (all the Geek you can get), so I'm thinking I just need something that can function as a transport, can feed the Peachtree. Read some about an older Oppo unit, DV-970HD, was supposed to be a really good transport, very inexpensive (especially now, not in production I believe, used on ebay for a song-of course, my ebay track record so far isn't stellar...).

OK, another Dogwalk Discovery, hadn't heard this in quite a while, angelic voice, this man.

I just watched this video in the best looking people thread. I thought I would share.

Wut? The best way to take that video in is with your best phones..Who cares about the two women with what looks like scientifically perfect proportions for the female anatomy and beauty that is 11 on a 10 scale! It is all about the upbeat music they are playing in the background.

It does punch above the $200 cost point at MSRP..It is on a similar playing field as the ICON dac and my NFB-5. Which is quite an accomplishment considering this sound and power comes from a sound card the size of a pack of gum. Some crazy good engineering on these Geeks. It has two headphone outs. One being 47Ohm for higher impedance cans and .47 Ohm for lower impedance and earphones..

 

I have been using my Doppios of all phones on it as it pairs extremely well with the Geek Out. The surprising thing was I threw the Doppios on there as it was my most sensitive earphone to test the noise floor on the unit and it hasn't left the Geek Out since.  Getting a nice burn in at the moment.

 

Compared to the DX90. There is a Sabre family resemblance in sound but the DX90 is superior in just about all aspects of sound. The Geek Out is leaning more toward a consumer friendly tuning more than the audiophile tuned DX90. Meaning it has more bass emphasis and sounds more intimate. Where the Geek Out is really surprising is that it has a very pleasing yet technical sound tuning on it to where it will sound right for all types of music. Sound scope is done very well on the Geek Out. The DX90 has better separation and layered depth with a touch wider stage, results of the more sophisticated dual sabre dac and amp chips implementation. Otherwise I consider the Geek Out a very worthy portable dac amp to use with your laptops.


Thanks for this.
