*Review to come*
Bought those as a portable go-to set (subway use, airplanes, travelling, etc.) and am so far very pleased. I previously used Etymotic IEM's (ER-4P and HF3) which are known for their clarity and...

Sounds great with the modded AKG Q701. Nearly as good with that as my main amp that originally cost $350. Impressive! In fact, the Vali added nothing to the sound of the modded Q701, which is...

You know. I forgot how they sound with the stock cable. I would say not much difference if any at all. I can just use it with my balanced amps..
That's why I get them re cabled anyway..post #4763 of 58407/21/13 at 4:03ampost #4764 of 58407/21/13 at 5:44am
They have less slam than the 5LEs so, something is not optimal here.
I quite enjoy the lively DP1 with them, though.
I quickly tried the 5LEs (when I took their alpha pads to put them on the 6s): the difference in refinement is stunning! The 6s are sooo smooth by comparison, as if they had no distortion. The 500s were more like the 6s in that as well.
But that's for another thread, back to the 900s now ;-)post #4765 of 58407/21/13 at 7:22ampost #4766 of 58407/21/13 at 7:33amQuote:
I suggest looking at the Stratus, EC 2A3 or perhaps a ECP amp before the WA22. The Zana I can't comment on.post #4767 of 58407/21/13 at 7:50amQuote:
i wanted a stratus, but im too impatient to simply pay $2600 and then have to wait months for one.post #4768 of 58407/21/13 at 7:57ampost #4769 of 58407/21/13 at 8:02amQuote:
i bought the DLIII when i bought HD 650s. i had an entry level pro-ject headphone amp/dac before that. the amp was actually pretty good for hd 650s, but the dac was really bad.post #4770 of 58407/21/13 at 8:03amQuote:
You only have to make a downpayment and then wait two months. Come on DG and join the club!
