I'm going to wait a while before I pass proper judgement.
Yes the Voyager is Single Ended only. But so far I'm very impressed.
It has two settings, - Flat or Contour. In the instructions Contour is advised for poorer headphones but I'm finding it very usefull with
bigger cans like the Beyer's. It adds more body.
As a whole so far I'm finding the Voyager to be a slightly warm ( just a smidge ) & natural amp, No noticeable floor noise on headphones. ( Havent tried my IEM's yet )
Actually I would say so far, Out of all my amps this one has the least noticeable background noise.
And I swear I'm hearing information that I haven't before, Like the Voyager is delving deeper and pulling out more detail. ( Does that make sense? )
As I said I will wait a while before I compare the Voyager against the Pelican,
1, Because my HD25's dont have the single ended adaptor yet.
2, One is balanced, One isn't.
3, I want to let the Voyager settle in a bit first.
To my ears at this moment, The Voyager single ended has an edge over the Pelican single ended, Again, More body.
But I will wait like I said.
I'm currently listening to "For Whom The Bell Tolls" By Metallica on their Ride The Lightning album, And Damn it's lively!!
