I've been scolder recently on another thread about making definitive statements. Such as ":I guarantee you will ______".  Here I go again:

 

I guarantee you will catch upgradeitis if you lurk and read in and around Head-Fi.

 

And we all love having it. There's nothing quite like the moments when you've just got that new piece, unwrapping  and getting it set up. very_evil_smiley.gif  L3000.gif  beerchug.gif

How is the sound quality comparison between go dap x and go dap DD?
Before I bought go dap , I was a bit confuse to decide between go dap x or go dap DD?
At the end I decided for go dap X ,the reason go dap X has more function can be us as USB dac + idevice + Samsung android Note 2.
The plus point from go dap DD is more digital out : coax , optical

 

Your very kind Rudi..........it looks messy but sounds good. I only had time to listen for a few minutes. I'll post some impressions later on.

 

IMHO you made the right decision going with X as you and Anak point out for versatility. Plus you already have so many good choices with your great equipment you already have.

So now it´s iPod Video 60GB Rockboxed > FiiO L9 LOD > FiiO E7 > Shure SE215

I run the exact same set up, with exception to the iPod being white.

What's your next upgrade? smily_headphones1.gif

The MH1C's controls do not work in this configuration and frankly I have not tried it with the 11.32 or the Fostex.  One of the tunes that I listened to was from the Tommy album. I specifically remember hearing good separation both in the soundstage and hearing different instruments in each ear.

Does this address what you mean?

Phones with a male trrs will in most cases work as plain headphones with absolutely no problem from sources with a female trs

Produce a stereo audio file with some content in only the left channel, nothing in the right channel. Play it back with a male TRRS / female TRS configuration and put only the right cup of your headphones on your right ear. You'll hear the signal that's in the left channel, when you should be hearing nothing.

It's a really nice setup imo. I am pretty satisfied with it and haven't thought about upgrading it too much as I am already spending too much for my home rig L3000.gif

Whether you can use a male TRRS plug in a female TRS socket depends where the sleeve contact is on the socket. Some sockets have the sleeve contact positioned over R2 of the TRRS plug, some have it positioned over the S of the TRRS plug. Some bridge the R2 and S.

 

To be compatible with iPhone-type TRRS plugs (also used by Nokia and most Android phones), the contact has to be over R2. Some older Android phones have the R2 and S wiring reversed, and so their pack-in earphones will have R2 and S reversed as well.

 

I haven't found a TRS socket yet with an S contact that didn't line up with R2 on a TRRS plug, but I know they're out there. The easiest way to deal with it is to get a 3.5mm F->M extension cord; as long as the socket in the extension cord works, you can use that to plug into the problem device.

 

The T (left +) and R1 (right +)  contacts are exactly the same on both TRS and TRRS connectors. If the contacts on the socket don't line up with them, you have some entirely unrelated problem.

Here's a couple pictures of my ladies....Rockboxed 5.5G iPod / Leckerton UHA-6S mkII / Heir Audio 4.Ai.

 

A change-up is in the works - Coming soon:  DIY iMod and the 4.Ai are being replaced by 4.A customs

Absolutely. The iPod is a fuller, more musical sound, but with the highs a bit lacking and just a slight bit muddier at times.

 

The Clip is a cleaner and more even overall sound, but a bit lacking in depth and hmm..spaciousness maybe?

 

I am hoping that when I do the imod, I will get the best of both. I am hoping the ipod will sound a bit cleaner and have better treble response..happy_face1.gif We will see!
