I'm not sure if it's better, it's just different, it's not necessarily bigger but I think maybe the staging is more coherent or continuous and starts from right within your head, in any case it is quite different, and I am possibly not describing it properly.

 

CIEM's have other drawbacks though: comfort, timbre, resale, fit, impedance matching etc.  I really want to get customs in the future also,but I didn't really use my last pair much...

My Cowon X9 has a claimed 110 hour battery life. I can't say I have scientifically tested that claim, but I have only charged it up twice since the beginning of March. That said, I do have other players I use also.

No, but it is somewhat Xiu Xiu-like, and that's actually where my handle comes from in the first place.

It was RWA modded and the mids was quite astoundingly clear. Otherwise I'd love to audition a pair for an extended period.

 

I've spend a good deal of time with the non-RWA modded version, and I think it sounds quite good myself. I haven't really come across any consensus as to what the RWA mods actually sound like, but they seem to give it more sense of immediacy and impact for some folks I've talked to about it.

Excellent choice!  wink.gif  I think that if Dan allocated a dozen pairs for a huge tour, that would help him out a lot.  It's really hard for people who haven't heard it to understand what we're on about.  Unfortuantely, outside of meets and friends, a purchase is the only way to sample it.  And a lot of people are reluctant to take that kind of a plunge.

A non-sucky-sucky XBA-S65 maybe?

 

I can't really get review units unfortunately, though I have tried in the past. What's actually cooler from Sony is this thing: http://www.sony.com.au/product/nwz-w273 Which is a whole headphone / walkman unit which is waterproof. Sony has been making variations on this for some time but this is the first on you can wear swimming which is cool.

 

What?  Lemme talk to them for ya!  On the waterproof thing, I'll PM you.

I think mine would be the GR07.

 

That's also been showing up quite a bit in the responses.  Not surprising, but I've never heard it.  frown.gif

Looks slick!

 

Hmm, I might not need a new DAP after all... but something about that unit appeals to me.  Seems to remind me of something.

I don't know. I think it looks a bit like a Zune with a smaller screen.

 

Yeah, I guess you could say it's sort of Zune like in appearance.

 

biggrin.gif  That must be why I dig it.  Still rocking my Zune 30 after all these years...

I think the US is still pretty enamored with Apple even today.  It's a pity though, as the Zune was a worthy contender.  Even to this day, I think it sounds pretty good.  And other than a few minor inconveniences (no storage upgrades, WMA Lossless, etc.), it still serves me well.

I think it's time to share another song from some of the anime I watched:



I can't really describe this without context of the anime, since the anime itself is awesome in so many different levels, it's just hard for me to detach myself. If anything, I'd say that it mixes in the feeling of the ancient mysteries of eras past with the sense of their otherworldly power, and they are being occultly revived.

I love seeing this ad on head-fi:

 

 

 

I think we slim our wallets a little too much 'round here.

I think the important question is, how well does it protect your IEMs? I mean, that's what a wallet is for right?

Looks interesting. Wake me when they release it (no way in hell I'm subscribing to that thread lol) biggrin.gif

Kinda quiet in here tonight... oh darn, it's already 5:30 a.m.!  Oh well, there goes another sleepless night.

 

Mupps, you got a Diary post coming soon?  I can sense us natives getting restless...

Oh trust me... Try to load 48+gb of data on the crappy Studio DAP... One time I waited 7 minutes for it to go to the "Now Playing" screen... LOL! But yeah, it takes a bit at start-up but no biggie. This C2 is actually one of the best players I've had, which isn't saying much since my favorite players were old Archos ones! ;)

I absolutely adore it! For me, it's one of the most moving and electric avatars I have seen on head-fi in quite some time. Hoping there's more of where that came from in yes.gif Summer 2013.

post #11217 of 21761

Yeah... um... okay, gonna stay away from the avatar topic.  Those of you with a memory know why.

post #11218 of 21761

My memory usually serves, but is skipping right now apparently... biggrin.gif not recalling your experience.

If I am correct,  it was referenced in another thread the other day....

 

Very best,
