The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1607

I'd like to see an in depth review on the PHVI too and compare your thoughts on them to mine. Maybe this thread can finally bring these amazing headphones into the light, just like it did for the Heaven V!

Hey waynes world buddy! I think the group may hate me if I give these the proper HYPE they deserve. But I will comment further after some more (significant) listening time. Right now I'm blown away. 

 

And I can say right now without a doubt these are the best headphones I've ever heard. Nothing I own or have heard before comes close.

Another probably last quick question.... since i am too lazy to ask in their dedicated thread. :tongue_smile:

 

What got me confused is the stupid "MASTER" output volume on the computer. Normally there is only one volume on your computer which is your speakers, and you ALWAYS crank that to the max when you use an external amp. Then you just adjust the volume using the knob/ buttons on the external amp unlike the geek....

... so what level are you suppose to set the "MASTER" volume then use the buttons on the geek to adjust to the proper loudness??? So zero is the loudest/ most powerful setting and the buttons will scale according to the "MASTER" volume on your computer am i correct???

 

This is where it is confusing to me. LoL

This is a headphone. And now I have satisfied that itch for the perfect headphone for me. Just peeking in though. lol

 

:beerchug:

Good point! I originally thought that went for headphones as well, lol!

 

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

 

 

And a magnificent headphone it is! Did you order them at amazon japan, or a US store?

 

I read from your impressions that they're fantastic, and basically a good companion to the heaven V earphones.

 

And I agree with wayne! I hope you bombard this thread with an exquisite review/impression of these headphones, I remember reading that it does compete with the higher end fostex, beyer, Audeze headphones! 

 

I wonder if these beat those phillips x1s.... (easy answer right? a big yes, maybe? :beerchug: )

Actually I think you set the master volume to 0 (max) and then the volume controls on the right will correspond with your OS controls. At least that's what I've been doing.

Ordered from amazon.jpn who had them on sale for $560 (it was cheaper than the inferior Hope IV at the time). Since then, the VI has gone up quite a bit (closer to suggested retail price, and the Hope IV has dropped to under $500 (which tells me those won't be on the level of the VI).

 

I still love the X!, but yes. The X1 is not even close.

So most people have already received their 450's and with all LH's work to get the 450s out last week as well as alleged Easter working to get the rest done, I only got my shipping notification yesterday?

I can't wait for the LH Geek Out ride to be over so I can be done with these clowns.

Sf, the thing is measuring in dB, and looking at your current setting, any music you are playing will be pretty low volume due to it being negative 21dB. You'll notice the slider doesn't actually say which end is min/max volume. Set it to Zero(Loudest, no dampening), which is as you said, the standard and adjust the volume from LH Console or through whatever music player you are using. Should work like normal now.

Anyone want to get a Geek out 720.. http://www.head-fi.org/t/716123/geek-out-720#post_10490025  Good deal.

Ds...I have dx90 arriving tommarrow. I know u love it with fx850. Is it because both are good, or is there even extra synergy with them.

Both synergy and ability..The DX90 is the most neutrally accurate sounding source I have ever owned which brings out true qualities of other factors in the equation. Be it a recording from the music itself to the phones you use with it. For example that natural timbre, detail and large stage of the FX850 meshes extremely well with the sound of the DX90. And both having a large wide stage as a source and a phone means your gonna get a pairing that just sounds about as good as it gets really. .


Same with the L2 using the DX90..It just sounds expansive and alive..The greatest aspect of the DX90 is that is pairs well with everything I own actually and don't pick n choose what it likes..This is how transparent the sound is from the DX90..The weak link will most definitely not be the source in this equation.. An excellent clean source with an excellent phone and you get a sound explosion of the extremely enjoyable kind..

Nice. Pretty excited.

So I did some comparisons of the Geek Out with my DX90 and the Geek Out for what it is I would put the sound quality at around the $300 level in sonics. 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.
