I use SanDisk SDXC cards and I am happy with them. However, the price of a 512GB SDXC card is IMO as far from value for money as you can get, so I will wait for the price to drop... I think some of the users here have 256GB cards. Maybe they will chime in ...

Yeah I'd wait for the prices to come down. The best buy is typically several steps down from the max capacity available. Price out 64GB and 128GB cards and compare (multiply) with the 512, and you''ll see what I mean.

Hi everyone this is my first post in this thread as a new HM-901 owner and I am very pleased with my recent purchase :D

Exploring familiar music in hi-res is such a pleasure!!

Many thanks to all members who have contributed to this knowledge base for our benefit.

A few questions for seasoned owners.....

 

i) has anyone found a way to use the supplied power adapter in-flight for charging/maintaining battery charge?

I have a 20+ hour flight coming up soon o_O

I will look at buying extra batteries and charger in the near future but not right now if possible.

 

ii) I am interested in full sized headphone recommendations for the 901. I have all 4 Hifiman amp cards and I am currently using the RE-600. I have read many reviews but would like to know what pairs well with this player.

 

iii) I have ordered various tips to improve the seal I currently get from the supplied bi-flange tips on the RE-600. I am hoping for something close to the Ety seal I got from my ER4s before they were stolen. Any advise is appreciated.

 

Cheers

IMO The RE-600 is a no brainer for anyone who has the HM-901 with balanced card. Best value IEM I have tried so far with HM 901, So much sound quality for so little price (especially if you buy used). The double flange tips are the best for me also, have ordered a triple flange tip from ebay, will let you know how that goes. What kind of HP's are you looking at - Closed / open / portable / indoor use ?

 

I find the Shure SE 846 a very good match with HM 901. I recently got a balanced card & it has improved the sound stage , even when driving them single ended. Can't wait for my balanced cable to arrive.

My HD600s sound great with my 901 & minibox, for closed I'd look at Beyer or used Denon D2000/5000

@ bonitomio

 

For headphone recommedations it's going to depend a lot on your music and sound preferences as well as use (as mentioned above). Personally I use CIEMs for travelling / on the go and open full size at home.

 

I prefer orthodynamics for full size because of the transparency, tight and deep bass as well as smooth treble that I haven't found in even the best and most expensive dynamic headphones (HD800 and TH900).
