the Keys make fun of high rez equipment in an interview i read, so i wonder....and most of their albums are "low fi" even

on vinyl...anyway I've been listening to DEEP BLUE for days on the cloud through ATH RE700S, TX2S, IM50S and other

gear of that ilk...actually sonds better than on my On-1s... Dangermouse was co artist on this Keys album and its saturated

with strange buzzing noises and synth warbles that get confusing to really good phones, but that the ones mentioned above

seem integrate into a coherent gestalt....nature of the beast i think...

 idk but the youtube version sounded like a 128kbs mp3 out of my laptop. 

The flac (only around 800kbs) sounded smooth out of my galaxy s4. The youtube version didn't sound bad out of the phone either now i've tested it...

I don't have any real hifi gear to test it :'(

DANNYBAI, hope you got some sleep!  I fell asleep with my new PhillipsTX2 in my ears and woke up

several albums later dreaming i was awake...or something like that.  Those TX2s are growing on me, but

the Doppios blow almost everything else in my house out of the water. and the price is plummeting.  EricP10,

what are your secrets for living on audio instead of sleep????

My TX2 should arrive tomorrow, also got the Tenor's on the way. Together with the Ostry KC06 and Havi B3's that I already have this should make an interesting budget shootout smily_headphones1.gif

There's a thread on hi rez files here, look for it later... The Beck HDTracks release came under fire for not really being hi rez, same site quoted. Sounds fabulous to me, but I'd have to buy the last, CD, mp3 and hi rez versions to be able to say what, if any, differences there are. bit rate/depth make a difference, I'm sure, but a poor recording won't be improved with a higher bit rate. There's lots that make up the final sound. A few years back JVC had a series called XRCD, great sounding discs, regular red book data, but the digits were transferred in a very meticulous way, disc pressing also handled similarly, and got superior sound at red book resolution. More later, gotta get back to the real world, had a fun weekend :-D

The imaging and instrument separation is something mind-boggling. I just can't imagine the Tenore sounding better than this here, but I will find out soon enough. Not as dynamic sounding as the BA-200, but pushing in that direction. Yet, the BA-200 couldn't dream of having the clarity, instrument separation and transparency I'm hearing out of the Doppios... Just stunning to my ears. And also the sub bass is excellent coming out of a dual BA. I have to say the Doppios, TE-05, V and FX850 do something extremely well that's better than the other ones. TE-05 pushing toward a BA sound, and the Doppios pushing toward a dynamic sound. Okay, need to force them out of my ears so that I can go to bed. Good night.

Do you still find Doppio below Dunu DN-1000 and FAD Heaven V?

Great question and a bit difficult to answer. Hmmm? Technically, yes. For example, there's a separation factor I remember when owning the DN-1000 that the Doppio can't reproduce (although it came a little close to it yesterday while having my Doppio connected to the my Schitt Modi and Vali DAC/amp combo. And mids are still more superb in the V than the Doppio to me.

 

Now, if we're talking about enjoyment factor, I would say that the three are about equal to my ears. I did, however, sell my DN-1000, and I don't really miss it (well I miss its unique signature, but not enough to be in a rush to buy it again). I hope that helps.

Thanks Dsnuts and Sfwalcer

I picked up my singolos this morning before I go to work so I have no chance to listen to them until now.

First impression, out of the box this phones are warmer and more musical than Doppios, the sound is not as crystal clear as their big brother.

Bass on singolos is More punchy,bigger and fuller than Doppios.

Mid on singolos is great it just right not as forward as Doppios it just a half step behind.

Vocal is warm and very intimate.Love it.

Treble is well extended no sign of sibilance at all.

So far I'm very impressed with Singolos this phones are musical and fun,I love them as much as I love my TE-05 and Doppio.
