HIFi M8 -> iPad4 (FLAC Player via lightning to USB cable) -> DreamEarz AUD-8x (Balanced)



HiFi M8 -> iPod Touch 5G -> DreamEarz AUD-8x (Balanced)


HiFi M8 -> iPod Touch 5g -> Sennhesiser HD600 (Balanced)


The AUD-8x cable is the Whiplash TWag V2 Gold OM cable with 4pin XLR

The HD600 cable is the Headphone Lounge Copper with Neutrik 4pin XLR

I'm just waiting for my custom lightning to USB cable to arrive from The Grobe and also a Toxic Cables Silver Poison SE IEM cable :-)

This is my first real foray into balanced cables and I must say I am really impressed with improvement over SE. Improved detail and clarity are the first things that hit me (as Rudi would say "IMO") :-)

How are you finding the hd600 as a portable rig? For me they have no isolation so impossible to use it unless it's just for waiting in the car or something like that

I'm loving the HD600, prefer them to the HD650 which I have owned previously.

They are only used at work (at the moment there's only me) or at home at night when my son and fiancé are in bed so the isolation / noise leakage out isn't a problem. I don't find them to bad for letting noise in, but I can still hear my son or fiancé if they want me.....although she seems to just text me if she wants anything....as she never knows if I am using my HD600 or CIEM's.

I did give them to a friend to listen to yesterday (who was blown away by the sound with the M8 and Touch), I didn't actually realise how much sound they leak out until he put them on!!!

Just received my custom made Lightning to USB cable for use with my iPod Touch / iPhone 5 and M8. I think this has worked brilliantly, just the right length and looks clean and tidy.

Thanks. The Onkyo's are no good though. Very lacking in the low-mids. Also defective (right channel on TWO different ones is bad). Going back to my Klipsch Image One until I can get Momentums or NAD Viso.

Thanks! I started it almost two years ago. Once I get freed up and get more work I'll hopefully be able to finish it.

Tonite I heard the comparison between Ko Jo KM 01 vs Cypher Labs. duet

Source : IPhone 5 s
Dac : Cypher Labs Class -DB 2,00 VRms version
Amp : Cypher Labs Duet
Ko Jo KM 01
Iem : Earsonic SM 64 v 2
Headphone : LCD XC

My impression :

Ko Jo KM 01 :
High :
Slightly more extended than Duet , better clarity

Mid :
Is slighly sweeter and clearer and cleaner than Duet , more intimate too, this is the strong point from Ko Jo KM 01

Bass :
Less Bass impact , very Good bass detail and very clean bass , less bass body

Separation :
Very Good separation , it is about on par With Duet

Soundstage :
Ko Jo soundstage is less Wide and Depth than Duet , it is more like small live jazz hall

Power :
has not enought Power to drive My LCD XC

Hiss :
No hiss

Background :
black background


Cypher. Labs Duet :
High :
Slightly less extended and less clarity than Ko Jo KM 01 , but more pronounce in the treble

Mid :
Is sweet but less intimate than Ko Jo KM 01

Bass :
Has better bass impact and faster bass Speed , bass clarity is on par With Ko Jo KM 01

Separation :
Very Good music separation , This Two Amps has about The same music separation

Wider and deeper than Ko. Jo KM 01 , more like big concert hall

Power :

Overall :

These Two amp has almost The same sound character ,
Ko JO has Theorem strong Point In term OF. Clarity and very sweet and intimate midrange , but less bass impact
It is very Good For iem , but not so Good , because lack Of Power , not The sound quality
