Though perhaps because WM8994 is newer, Wolfson has continuously improved the audio quality to the point where their portable application DACs compete with or outperform their older DACs.

The problem comes from the notion that parts equals goodness. Bits may have some character but there is so much to consider in these DAPs that trying to determine whats good from a parts list is a useless endeavor. Folks like absolutes so that they can connect the dots but it doesn't work that way. 8740 has better stereo #S so....

I would like to try the fischer audio's out too. Any more micro-detail than this and I end up selling my D7000's and getting a C&C XO2 very_evil_smiley.gif

It sounds better to me than my iPhone 4s. There seems to be a little more omph. I like it out of the sansa clip, no eq.

They're not good for jazz. Treble is dry. Cymbals don't sound natural frown.gif

 

For sale for 190€ incl. shipping from EU. 3 days old, got them by Friday. Basically I've just passed the weekend with them. I have the original box and receipt as they came from amazon.jp

Dude, wait till the 200hrs before taking such a decision. The cable is copper/silver and copper/silver cables need 200 hours to break-in. I'm PRETTY sure SQ will still improve quite a bit.

Am i the only one here having problems with the vocals on the fxz200? Somehow i hate how the vocals sound on this earphones, everything else is perfect. For example when im listening to Adele songs, her vocals would be too deep into my head that it feels like it sounded mono to me? It feels like someone is singing into my head instead of on my ears.
