Ah, I see. Do you happen to know where one can buy a 6FT cable? I tried some 3.5mm cables lying around, but none fit because of the stupid jack.

I believe SoundMAGIC don't make any other cables besides the two you already have and the coiled one, which is shorter and heavier. Best you use the stock cable, with a 1-2m extension cable attached, seeing that no jacks will fit into the headphones (due to proprietary entry). There was a guy in the HP100 thread who modified a V-Moda cable to fit, but as said, it requires modifications.

My opinion, no need for an external amp. Would something external help? Maybe, depending on what the external component is but "need"? Nope.

 

So far I'm looking at portability (this is a portable pic thread afterall ;-)), so I've not tried amping it. I think different amps would change the way it sounds subtly however I don't know if I'd say that it's "better".

 

But one modification which would improve the above configuration is balancing the cable. I've already tried it at the Fujiya show with a Whiplash TWAu balanced into the AK240.

I don't know why some of you have "open" headphones for portables. I mean c'mon, open headphones are the worst type of headphone to go out in the open.

Portable doesn't strictly mean "down the street" - it might be a setup you take around the house, to work etc

I think most people use the word "portable" as going places. I can understand need for doing things around the house, but that is not what some of these setup's are used for. I think if it's for work, then wouldn't that just be a regular setup? I guess if it was "transportable", but I can't understand the "portable" part.

If I may help, the mid-fi photo thread has more portable rigs smily_headphones1.gif I agree big rigs belong in home head-fi. If you need a rucksack to carry kit then whether it is wall powered makes no material difference when power sockets are everywhere

The different between ALO International and International +

International + :
DAC Is IDevice like iPhone 5 s and IPad Air ready for use

The physik is lighter

Can be charge with micro USB .

My short impression :

High : more detail , better clarity
Mid : more clear and better pronounce
Bass : has better bass detail , but not as deep as Imternational
Separation : better than international
Soundstage : wider , the depth International is better

Overall : SQ has improvement in detail and clarity , wider soundstage , I remember sound character like my Duet , Duet has more balance

IMO

 




Is that Mike's Samsung and headfonia table? :D:D:D
