The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 994

post #14896 of 26054

Wow, the Sony sounds great (but the top of the line model is not inexpensive...then again, if I were spending that money, I might feel better doing it with a Sony than iBasso, A and K, etc I'm guessing the UI would be much better, for one thing, and easy to deal with in case of problems.

As for the FAD iem's, keeping an eye, interested, of course, though reading about FAD phones, they would say it's not just the drivers, but all the materials used for shell, etc, that make the sound of their headphones.

Mine still haven't been shipped either, and the order shows up as processing. Hopefully they will ship soon!

 

It was already said that S1, R3 and the Deltas will be delayed and will be shipped after the 10th of October.

Wow! I think I might save up for that ZX1. I have way than enough music to fill it up. On related news, I finally got a tracking number for my DX50 (thank you mp4nation). As for the earphones (waiting for the R3), mp4nation told me that might not ship until mid October. They are having some type of issue with the manufacturing company.

Oh, the Dunu DN-1000 is in the Chi! Hopefully I'll see it today or tomorrow.

So of those of you who have heard both, which is more refined and which do you enjoy better, the R3 or the 750i?

Oh and that new Sony DAP is not bad, but lordy lord $700 something for a mp3 player??? Hope it also has wifi/ app usable since it's android based. The 125gb storage is nice, no micro sd slots though sadly. Hope it sounds nice!!! :ksc75smile:

Yes somehow 700 bucks seems steep. I wonder what it would have cost if the greedy 'stards at iRiver hadn't pushed that 1200 buck 120 on the market?

^ Wait that Astell & Kern 120 is by iRiver??? :blink:

http://www.amazon.com/Astell-Kern-AK120-Dual-DAC-Mastering/dp/B00D648BDA

 

But yeah some of these audiophile grade DAPs are getting stupid in their pricing. The new Sony one at least is semi-smart phone-like in features but majority of these high end DAPs are crazy basic without even a functional/ stable a lot of the times. LoL

 

Kinda fitting...

http://www.head-fi.org/t/682750/the-sad-state-of-the-so-called-audiophile-dap-market

 

But there seems to be a lot more options these days so it ain't THAT sad, but his basic argument is indeed very true. Even with Sonys crazy experience/ expertise in tech they can't seem to create a good functional software with great UI for nothing. And lets not forget Sony was Apple before Apple became Apple, Sony's old propriety cables/ plugs was a major pain in the arse as well, even worse than Apples tbh. Apple is indeed the masters of copying.

Yup A&K is an iRiver by any other name. Nobody would pay 2.5 time the price of the last iRiver offerring so what to do. We take a lesson from marketing and invent a snobbish sounding name that has no foundation in reality an viola the 120 is born. Now you can charge that 1200 bones and people will think M Astell and M Kearns are hard at work in their Laboratory overlooking lake Como creating the 2500 player with buggy firmware for you to buy so you can play ultra hi rez audio, real soon now,...as soon as we figure out how to actually rewrite our firmware which has been commented in Hindi because we couldn't get it to work and farmed it out to some code whorehouse in the back of an abbatoir in Bangalore where we pay 1 cent per line of code.
