It most certainly does.

The Accudio app certainly cleans up the high end of the ATH-ESW9.  I keep touting that app recently, but is a little wonder....with the Fostex of course.

Just sayin' cool.gif The e17 fares better as a desktop device since it's dac section is better than most

E17 as portable amp is still better than no portable amp lol. My budget currently doesn't quite cover a portable and a desk rig so I got the e17 to use for both eek.gif

True haha. I meant assuming you already have a nice setup at home, it wouldn't make sense to use the e17 as an amp only. When I had the e17 I pretty much used it on my desktop only since I didn't sense a strong difference between it and my iphone 4s headphone out when on the go.

Doesn't it annoy you having to turn your iPhone on airplane mode? Kinda renders your phone useless.

I wish I could get it on my iPod :(

 

You know the other app you recommended, Dennon works really well. I love the being able to make infinite changes to the EQ. I have not had a chance to listen to my phone but when I do, Accudio is being used. I even have a pair of Sony earphones that it knows :)

Any general pointers would be much appreciated, but I'm in the UK and model numbers are oftentimes different.

I'm not even sure why I want one - I just do! (I guess that's how a capitalist system thrives)

 
Get a NH600 used. Cheap as chips ang Hi-MD recorder. Lookup ebay for plenty of cheap recorders.

That is goyjuss! Sadly, I would guess that prices are commensurate.

I bought it for $175 (incl Shipping.) but yes this is the silver one...

 

I also have the blue one. ...

Which cost me $235 (including Shipping)

Is the NH600 high quality though? One of the ebay ads mentions that it was an 'entry level' unit.

post #1601 of 14333

NH600 is indeed entry level and mainly made of plastic. Still sounds okay.

So, grabbed some battery's for my MZ-R051, and used the line out of Hifiman HM-601 as a source. (FLAC)

And what do you know, it sounds pretty good. wink.gif This R051 has some serious bass punch when engaged. You don't find bass like this in our MP3 players today. Overall, I almost rate the sound that comes out of R051 HIGHER than the Hifiman HM-601 headphone out performance. I've created a hybrid of HM-601 warm sig and Sony house sound. biggrin.gif

The only problem is I kind of don't want to become attached to this because the battery's, discs and transfer times will cause me a slight hassle.

I'll transfer some Colorfly CK4 line out on a disc next. Thanks for reminding us about the old school gikigill wink.gif It sounds pretty damn fine.



(sorry for drifting off topic, but hey' it's portable and also a rig)

Slightly off topic, too...I always chuckle at the names of custom cables - silver leopard, silver rays, etc...it reminds me of late night informercial knife-hawkers...sort of. 

 

post #1604 of 14333
Yeah, silver leopard, white widow, silver ray, snake oil....they all sound the same

Looking at a DAC as well. The comply tips look horrible and gross in the picture, I promise it is just the lighting. They are almost brand new, and I always clean my ears before I put them in.

 

 

 Your Comply look like cheesey Wotsists....
