Well he seemed to have very little experience with more expensive (or any) phones anyway, it doesn't mean anything..

 

You mean other than the HD-650, K701, and HE-500?

Why does expensive seem to mean good most of the time....?

True, expensive does not equal quality

Hey,

 

Has someone from Canada ordered the O2 from JDSlabs (i'm sure somebody did)?

 

Were there any extras taxes/duties that you had to pay? I emailed the Jdslabs and they responded nobody complained about the extra fees from Canada? Is that true? Thanks.

If you're in Canada, just get one of the much nicer Audio Poutine versions (based in Canada) and don't worry about it. It's virtually the same price anyways.

OK, seriously, no joke here.

 

I have the O2/ODAC plugged-in to my Retina MacBook Pro, only Finder, Activity Monitor, Skype (text chat, no video chat), and Firefox with 1 tab (Head-fi) are open and I can hear the radio. Seriously this is really scaring me. I turned on the O2's gain switch to make sure I wasn't hearing things. It's playing the 106.9 radio station (I know the radio station pretty well). They just finished playing a Nickelback song and now they're playing Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours".

 

 

I am genuinely confused and scared at the same time. What in the heck is going on? D:

 

The radio music is louder when I put the ODAC on top of the O2. Retina MacBook Pro -> ODAC (via provided JDS Labs USB cable) -> O2 (via RCA connectors) -> any headphone I use -> my head and I hear the radio station

*this isn't the first time this has happened either; the first time it happened I just ignored it*

 

 

What the hay? If I unplug the O2's DC power source, I no longer hear the radio station.

And "popping" with the O2/ODAC might be due to the computer. I plugged the combo in to a Dell desktop computer at my school and had no "popping" issues. I get the "popping" sound when I plug in/out the combo when I use my Retina MacBook Pro though.

I got it from JDS. No extra fees. Great service.

Correct. When I'm charging the O2, it seems that I can hear the radio station.

JDS Labs O2 3

 

First Impressions of the O2+ODAC have been posted over at my site, Musical Musings!

mice,

 

it sounds like the radio station is getting induced into the ac adapter line.....guessing here....try wrapping the ac adapters power line/cord into a small ball...or a small loop etc...see if this attenuates the radio interference....

You're not helping me :) I want of these combos so bad. I wonder if we will ever hear from "him" again about the ODA.
