Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI) - Page 100

post #1486 of 14729

Finally got the portable set up that works for for all my situations.

 

This is for road trips and when I'm gonna be away for a few days.

 

 

This is for chores around the house, little walks, etc.

 

 

And this is my quickie set up, for when I don't feel like or can't carrying a bunch of stuff.

What are those tips on the ie8s.  Do they help with isolation or sound quality at all?

Personally I love them :)

 

 

Hello jham, as quoted, Paul's rig has the S-series. I haven't tried comply yet, but I will say that the foam tips I'm using on my IE80s definitely affect both isolation and sound. Isolation has significantly improved, and the bass has become a little heavier (I use the minimum bass-dial setting now, from 2/5 before), while the highs' presence is reduced. The IE80 is not a sibilant headphone, but foam tips made my highs 'duller' (opposite of sharp, I guess). I am in favour of the sound change, as I use them a lot on airplanes and trains, where more bass rumble isolates better.

 

My foams - Hippo M+, from Jaben at 12 SGD for 6 pairs. They aren't premium for sure, but they are easy on the wallet and I like them!

It's pretty darn small, but a super sharp drill bit or dremel sanding bit and a high speed might fix the small hole problem.

That's my portable kit. A plethora of MD/Hi-MD/Auvi recorders to shake off the iPod monotony.

 

Bonus is they have a built-in line out mode which means no LOD or DAC.

 

FXZ200, GR07 MK2, FX700 and the JH16,

 

MadDogs by headfi's very own Dan, beautiful sound by these babies. Great isolation plus comfort for portable usage

 

Objective2 and iBasso DB2/PB2 combo. They power the MadDogs and the JH16 fantastically after an upgrade of buffers and opamps from Ron (HiFlight on headfi) for the PB2.

post #1491 of 14729

How are the FX700s? Do you consider them to be an upgrade compared to the GR07s?
 

post #1492 of 14729

Nope, they have their strengths though.

 

A very unique sound which is more midrangish and sometimes a bit of sibilance.

Nice here is mine

 

RH1 > Toxic silver pioson Mini 2 mini > RSA The Shadow > Toxic silver pioson EIM cable > Heir 3.ai+

(running the RH1 via line out)

Gotta say, the RH1 has a very clean line out.

 

Just remember not to plug in your IEM,s direct when running in line out modefrown.gif

 

Destroyed a pair of IEM in the process.
 

 

Edit: The RH1 looks very classy in your pic. A sort of dignified elder gent who heading into the sunrise and might not be the latest/greatest but can still pull a trick or two.

 

I also use MD recorders as a DAC for my laptop.Google to see how to use a MD as a DAC/Soundcard. Sounds great too.

That is true. I have a few Hi-md players. So am using RH11 solely with an amp and the NH3D for use with no amp.

 

The combination sounds very good.

post #1496 of 14729

Stock up on EH50/70 Hi-MD players as they run off AA and have the HD Digital amp if your RH1 goes bust.

 

Just ordered a pair from Japan plus a still in box NH900biggrin.gif.
 

post #1497 of 14729

Nice I also have a NH900 and love the lay out of the player. I might have a look at the H70. never really thought abut that one.

Back To The Futuretongue.gif

 

My future portable player. Still sealed and intact. Digital amp and inbuilt line out.

 

The joy of unboxing a gadget with all the accessories and kit&kaboodle is sorely missing today unlike these babies.

 

We don't even get a proper charger and separate usb cable for crying out loudangry_face.gif

How quick are the transfer rates? smile.gif

REALTIME!!  (Find me a slower recording rateetysmile.gifetysmile.gif)

 

 

I use PCM mode recording optically with FLAC/WAV/CD only.

 

I belong to the school of thought which believes music is for listening and relaxing and not comparing your "size".

 

Its not a personal taunt to you or anyone else but just my general belief.

 

I realize some prefer quicker ipods and even I have have a few Sony DAP,s such as the Vaio VGF-AP1L, HD1/3/5 and the A3000/1000.

 

For me nothing beats the silky smooth MD sound especially the Digital amps and the Sharp 1 bit Auvi amps. They are legendary in sound.
