D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions - Page 20

post #286 of 671

These are kinda crappy—I don't have any good cameras/ lighting at home right now.

 

iBasso D7 Sidewinder - top view

 

It's almost the exact footprint of an iPod classic. Very compact.

 

 

iBasso D7 Sidewinder - Font View

 

Simple layout and controls, same as pretty much every other iBasso. Notice the finish—it's a very pebbly/ soft finish, almost like velvet. Notice near the Gain switch how it's marked up a bit, right out of the box. This finish will be very easy to mark up.

 

 

iBasso D7 Sidewinder - Back View

 

Nothing to write about really.

 

The D7 includes a warranty card, extra screws for the chassis, two USB cables in different lengths, a pleather case and rubber feet.

 

I can't wait to really get listening to this. Impressions to come!

Thanks for getting some pics up! I had some trouble doing so last night, so didn't get to it. The pics capture the "matte" finish which I like (as you mentioned.)

 

I like the solid feel of the volume control.

 

Congrats and happy listening! I have some Jam Band music kickin' off Pandora beside me while I work, right now...

D7 on its way to be use at the office with my 535s and workstation, wondering if I use the built in amp or pair it with my D6, you guys think it matters in the IEM realm?

Hey, sorry about the ignorance, but how long does iBasso normally ship its products? I put in the order just over a day ago, but I received nary a confirmation of order from iBasso, except for the payment receipt straight from PayPal. Is this typical? Don't merchants usually thank people for purchasing their products, send you a receipt, yada yada yada? I find this lack of correspondence alarming.

it's normal. many received their product before the buying confirmation even showed up on their mail box.

Weird. So people get the tracking number after the package shows up at their doorstep? If iBasso is using EMS from China, it shouldn't take more than 2-3 days to get to where I live (Taiwan)... hmmm

That finish looks kind of like Nextel to me.  I've had Nextel finished audio gear in the past and it does show rubs pretty easily.  I prefer a traditional anodized finish personally. 

 

Does anyone know if the silver finish is like this too or is it anodized?

I'm powering a pair of Q701's with mine and they sound great.  No harshness, sweet mids and plenty of bass.  They don't sound underpowered to me.

You will receive your first email with the tracking number, there is no purchase confirmation email.

Not sure but I ordered a silver one so I'll post pics when I get it.

Most of the 'thank you' message you usually receive for online purchases are computer generated. iBasso's website isn't that sophisticated. Their emails are all manually typed. I like that as it gives you a sense of personal attention. They are considered super fast in reply already and there is nothing much to worry about.

 

I think that they have some of the best service reliability anywhere else in the world.

Hey, where's the NSFW warning? biggrin.gif

 

Nice pic! How's it with the CMOY (vs the D7 headphone out?) If I missed something you already posted with this comparison, sorry in advance.

Yeah, while I know those messages are automatically generated, it is still really odd to not see anything at all after paying. It threw me for a loop. So not receiving anything at all for two days just means that they're busy, or should I send them an e-mail to politely remind them that someone ordered something?

They will know that you have placed an order. I haven't heard of any cases whether iBasso has actually missed an order, unless you are the first! XD

 

I never receive any confirmation at all. The only email I received was the tracking number.
