Different beast IMO, U3 has many features like dolby headphone, optional SPDIF out? microphone input etc and would undoubtedly be superior for video gaming and movies.

@dsnuts , would XB90 benefit any improvement using bigger bore tips just like XBA3? OK, I see your point regarding XBA3 and MDR R1. I have no interest on XBA3 as a starting point anyway so I would not have chance to experience it's quality. I'm waiting for FXZ100 impressions.

yeah, XB90EX sounds much more open and nicer with wider bore tips. stock tips restrict the sound too much...

So,  question here.

 

 

i got my FP DAc,  once its plugged on my laptop, its like using  that soundcard, so everything is thrown and proccesed by my FP. once i play a mp3, the DAC and amp of my FP makes all the work, right?

 

 

  But, i dont get how these Ele Dac works with a portable device, how does it works?  for exampe if i use it with a Blackberry that has a very bad dac+,  garbage comes out of the BB and goes in the DAC, the Ele wont transform the mp3 i am using so whats the point?

 

Sorry,  can som1 explain me how it works? i dont get it.

Check these out guys. SOMiC MH463 Open air earphones with 50mm transducers--about as large as they get... I bought them for $44.

 

I have them on my ears now and I must say... they sound like what their specs would lead you to expect (open air soundstage, huge drivers for big impact) and nothing like what their price tag would lead you to expect L3000.gif

Where did you find them for $44. how is the detail and bass?

post #5032 of 26094

This is how they sound to my ears

1000

In perspective, that's some of the most linear treble I've heard from cans.  The bass boost gives a not unpleasant warmth but EQing it out in favour of a subbass boost makes the sound much clearer, challenging IEMs for clarity (which have always been clearer than cans in my book) while beating them out in soundstage.  Unlike my other cans that just make pathetic farting sounds when you try to push them below 30Hz, these dish out real subbass with their big 50mm drivers when you EQ it up.

 

These popped up out of nowhere in the computer store at my block (I live in Hong Kong).  I was like "huh? 50mm drivers?  Open air?  At this price?  Here?" and picked them up in a heartbeat.  Glad I did L3000.gif

 

Hmm here's the first international place I found selling them

http://www.focalprice.com/EP0109B/SOMIC_MH463_35_mm_8__30000_Hz_Wired_Dynamic_Headphone_Black.html

 

Still a good deal at $69 I'd say smily_headphones1.gif

Na I would rather get my $148 back. Nice to pay $51 just to try out a sound card/ amp. You live and you learn..Post office sucks that might be the reason why they are going out of business.

 

It is great there are a lot of great DAC/AMPS made in China but this is unfortunately the cost of getting a DAC from China. The risk of return.

It is a simple version of your Fire Phoenix..It connect through USB on the back side to your computer. And out in the front end though 3.5mm jack. So you can Just plug a headphone right into there and listen to your music or you can hook an amp from the ELE dac to your fire phoenix using something like this.

What I like about it. Is it powers through your USB so no external power is needed on the Ele dac. Very easy to use especially if you lug around a laptop.

Wow, post office? I thought you're using FedEx or something and for this money you should have.

Even simpler, any DAC creates a new analogue stream from digital information. Hence "DAC". It bypasses any DAC in your Blackberry etc. It goes MP3/FLAC -> DAC -> headphones, not MP3/FLAC -> Blackberry -> DAC -> headphones.

Brutal. First Doc gets denied his $79 AD900's, and then you get burned. Black Friday indeed!
