This is my portable rig. 

Just got a like 2 weeks ago.

My iPhone 5s and an ifi iDSD Micro paired with my shire SE 535. 

At home I am using my iMac instead and my Sennheisers HD 700

 

What do you think?

How's the pairing with the SE535? I find the HD700 with the Micro iDSD to be sibilant with my music

really? sibilant? 

I think its pretty warm sounding and nice :)  

But depends on the music you are hearing and your ears I guess :) 

what kind of music are you listening to?

 

its quite nice on the se535. At work I am paired to my notebook...thats pretty nice. Honestly there is not soo much difference between iPhone 5s and SE535 and iPhone ifi and SE535. 

It's a littler warmer and clearer I want to say but not the wow like at work with my notebook :D

The HD700 was warm sounding and the vocals were to die for, not to mention the soundstage depth. There's a treble peak which on some tracks is unbearable. Not really sibilance, wrong term!! 

 

With my FAD Heaven VI, the most evident difference between my iPhone 5 and the DX90 is the soundstage width and tonality. This soundstage is even further increased with the iDSD. Even non-audiophile friends comment "the sound seems more compressed" with only the iPhone. However, I like the DX90 tonality with these IEMs so… :D

ahh ok...now I know what you mean...yea I think I heard that treble peak once or twice...only have some songs with that issue. 

 

I like it with the SE535 though. Have bought the comply ear tips for the IEM...so much better than the stock tips...you should def try them. 

Otherwise I like my rig so far...just got like 2 weeks ago...dont have that much high res music yet, so I am stuck with spotify premium. Still pretty decent quality though. 

Tried to blind test a flac 96khz 24bit against 320 kbits mp3. that was pretty hard...sometimes the flac was better, sometimes the mp3 or none. 

I even tried DSD once..that you really can hear...at least the songs I had

Now you've got me thinking!

If pelican cases could handle a dap on one side and an amplifier on the other, then drilling some holes on the pelican case for the connections would be an idea. Also some vents for cooling while the both are powered on would help.

But all the waterproofing will be in vain. :(

Its an idea.
No good for me personally as I am a track skipper from hell, but it would be neat.

The i1010 case has an opening port for your headphone cable so you can leave your dap in the case while still listening to it.
