Is this a good cable from Philips self...?
Same here, hope you love em! I'd feel bad if you didn't because I did recommend them to you when I had them. What are your impressions when comparing to the GR07 BEs off memory? Was I right?
Upgrading headphones has been a bit of a pain in the balls. Finally settled on the X1 after a lot of deliberating, ordered that. The cable is terrible though and will cause it sound bad, okay... I order a new cable. Need an amp/dac though, so I order a cheap option - the Xonar DG. Apparently that has a high impedance output though, so again I need to order something else, lord knows what though - any recommendations for a cheap amp/DAC to use in combination with the Xonar DG and X1? I'm thinking the Fiio E10 maybe, or the E6 or something. I fully expect there to be yet another purchase necessary after this :P
Yeah, reality sucks like that.
Do you think I, far away from being an audiophile like you, will care about the difference from the impedance output? We'll have to see, though I have no frame of reference.
I see. I might have to use the X1 on its own with just onboard audio then. Far from what it should be, but ah well.
All I can think of that might be appropriate is the E11, which is quite expensive in the UK. But, would that be the end of it? Of course not! I'd need to buy an external DAC as well! Enough, I'm done with this stuff.
edit: Also the E11 can't be listened to whilst charging and can only go for a few hours before running out of power. Great.
As the nice Neutrik connectors seem to fit here is a selection of mini to mini cables of good quality available in Europe:
OH MY GOD this thing is....FREAKIN AMAZING!!! first impression it's sound is very spacious and still got that very nice bass,hell yeah playing it through my Denon pma 720 and it is good test it on my Fiio E10 later......never had a open headphone before always closed but me like....
