I thought on the DX100 is that it does best with no bright earphones and headphones while the 801 which has a colored sound goes better with bright earphones such as Shure 530,535 and JH13 (16).

I'm thinking of picking up a secondhand pair of ortho cans for use with my DX100. For those that have tried the combo which would you go for, LCD-2 or HE-500?

I really like both so far but I'm preferring the LCD-2 more.  If you wanna save some bucks, the HE-400 sound absolutely fantastic with it.

What cable do you use with the HE500? I prefer the one that came with the HE-6, as the overall sound to my ear, is just better.

Some may not agree that 801 has a colored sound, but it is indeed much better sounding with JH16 than the DX100.

 

Didn't have a chance to try out DX100 with headphones or other earphones though.

 

Generally, my short audition with DX100 is a pleasant one and I am sure it will attract many listeners who wish for an upgrade from the ipod but yet wish to have a decent UI. It is definitely more detailed and smoother than the ipod, but not really an improvement from 801 (to my ears only).

 

For listener who are used to vinyl and analogue sound with smooth and non-fatigue music, I think 801 will be closer to that quality, yet more detailed.

I use the silver cable that came with mine. Only other cables I have are the canare cables.

I agree that the 801 sound is like from a record and turn table which I love and the DX100 is more about detail. I believe the DX100 with a dynamic driver brings the sound closer to vinyl then BA drivers. Also I use the EQ and I have the bass at +5

Yep I have to agree the DX100 really does sound nice with dynamic drivers. Its pretty good with my Custom TF10s but I honestly prefer using those for gaming instead of music, go figure. Hopefully the Heir 8A will change that when the time comes...
 

 

post #3866 of 12660


Yes me too well the heir 8 should provide good bass which many other BA driven earphones do not aim for.

Interesting, thanks for your opinion. Have you (or anyone else) compared the HE-400 and 500 driven by the DX100? Just wondering which suits the DAP the best?

Or should I just bite the bullet and go for the LCD-2, which I must admit do look cool as ****.

I am quite happy to say that I found a solution for my SD card problem, which was also experienced by jax and cubasesx and nicely described by AnakChan:

Album 5

But what he sees through the player :-
Internal Memory

Album 4

Album 5

Album 6

SD Card

Album 4

Album 5

Album 6

 

What I'm curious is if @Jax downloads and installs something like "File Manager", what does that show him? i.e. is the overwriting part occuring only in the Music Player or is it happening at the Operating System level.


What I did previously and which causes the problem:

 

as shown in Windows 7 explorer:

 

internal

IBASSO\sdcard\Music\<Album 1>

or

IBASSO\sdcard\<Album 1>

 

external

SD1\Music\<Album 2>

or

SD1\<Album 2>

 

as shown in File Manager on the DX100 (File Manger is an Android app):

/mnt/storage/sdcard

this corresponds to the external SD card

the top level folder:

/sdcard

corresponds also to the external SD card

The internal SD card is not displayed in File Manager

 

 

 

Now, coming to the solution:

connect the DX100 to the (Windows) desktop

create:

IBASSO\Music\<Album 1>

 

The folder "Music" must be on the same hierarchical level as the folder "sdcard". Not below.

 

I keep the structure on the external SD card:

SD1\Music\<Album 2>

 

Now the File Manager on the DX100 shows:

/mnt/storage/sdcard/Music/<Album 2>

this corresponds to the external SD card

/mnt/storage/Music/<Album 1>

corresponds to the internal SD card

Both cards are displayed in File Manager.

 

The above was done with a SanDisk 64GB microSDHC card (class 6). Formatted as FAT32. Using either Acronis Disk Utilities or "fat32format" ( http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm )

The card is a primary volume type and not a logical.

 

Hope this helps, and prevents some for sending the DX100 back to iBasso (too fast).
