The discovery thread.! NEW Zero Audio Singolos! pg1644..Doppios! pg1197 - Page 365

I would say about equivalent to the clip. Perhaps a bit wider stage..Not quite the Z but the Ele holds its own for certain. It is just nice to have a DAC that will sound much better than your onboard Realtek sound that cost $18. And even better when a small amp is in the mix. I would try one out. As you can see the initial group of guys all agree. Quite fantastic for the bucks. You would never think this little gadget like DAC would throw out the sound like it does.

I think it's at least 1 step up from the Sansa Clip sound.

BTW, I've used Sansa Clips of various versions for years, and really like them.

Given many of them for gifts.

Now other really entry level question to Ghostfit or Dsnuts. Does this ELE DAC has better output sound quality than Sansa clip or Sony Z player? I don't remember anyone mention it.

 

Thanks for all your help!

Ya I think your right BG.

You know. this phrase is all too familiar.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I doubt you'll ever hear this kind of sound for this price

 

I'm leaving head-fi. for my wallet's sake.

 

of course I'm joking.

The Ele pairs very well with my Miles Davis Tributes, presumably the Trumpets as well. Should get a chance to really sit down with it tomorrow.

Just for you guys.. A new discovery.!

700

Rosewill Woodies..!  Why am I posting this here? Well it is the first time I have gotten free earphones. Recently for black friday newegg had these on sale from $20 to $10 with an additional $10 off with a special code. Maximum 5 earphones for order meaning

 

5X $10= $50 -$50 code= $0.

 

So how does a zero dollar earphone sound?. I got these thinking I bet these will sound terrible. Actually they are ok. Nothing I would buy with actual cash but ok. These have an ok balance with the typical mid bass lift many cheapos share..The highs don't extend all that well and the mids are very dry and not so deep. Instrument separation is actually decent on them but has a closed in sound meaning a small sound stage. The sub bass is rolled off and so it is all about the mid bass and almost no sub bass. But considering I got them for free. These would actually make good gym buds as they are really light and have minimum microphonics. Do I recommend them? No not really. Now if you get them free like I did well then. This pouch alone is worth getting a pair for free. The eartips are actually decent as well.

 

Yes these are indeed in the HA-S500 take a pic sweepstakes. Nothing like good looking cheapo buds to make you want to win them. Lol!

Yeah, well you better not leave until you at least get that ele dac!

 

Or those somics...

 

Or those fxz100's...

 

Changed my mind - you better go now lol!

Can anyone comment on the ele vs uca202/uca222 specifically the line out?  I really like the uca, but I want another dac for a different system.

Sorry don't know nothing about the UCA202.  These things cost $18. I would try one. It is a simple USB in and 3.5 out. Sounds great. Is nothing more nothing less.

So I just got MH1Cs. I'm listening to them right now and I think they are definitely worth $30 already. I really like the mids, I'm not sure why. Symphonic stuff also sounds nice on these; can't wait to burn them in. I'm probably going to end up getting an ELE to go with 'em.

 

One more thing I just heard: female vocals sound awesome.

Ele Dac recommended 100% for these. The synergy is crazy using the Ele. You think they sound good now. Wait till you hear them on the ELe dac. Simply amazing.

Ya here is the retardedness of this situation. I will spend more money to ship out the prizes than what I spent on the prizes themselves. But hey all in the name of some fun happenin. If you guys don't know, we are doing a special event on the HA-S500 thread. I encourage you guys to check out the HA-S500 thread on the 21st. Will be some fun pics I hope.. Grand prize has not been announced quite yet but we do have a very used but not abused 8 gig Sansa fuze in the mix.. Ooooo.

These IEMs are very surprising, I think I love these things. I didn't expect them to sound this good, I can't wait to get the dac. The bass might be close to my HA-FX1Xs when it comes to techno.

 

Is the ELE amped at all?

It can't be worse than my laptop headphone out anyways.  I guess I'll probably just pick one up and give it a shot.  If it's half as good as people are saying, I'm sure I'll enjoy it
