I have some (maybe considered many..but not too many), personally, for my serious listening/enjoyment, i much prefer to use ipod+dac+amp, than my DAPs. DAPs are good, but to me personally, i (much) prefer the sound from my combos. And for the head/ear phones, between this two models, i prefer to use full size cans while at home - but sometimes i also enjoy IEMs too, occasionally. When i listen to music, the MIDS is the most important part for me, followed by clarity and accuracy of the tone. I don't mind if it's warm or darker sig, as long as they can achieve those i mentioned, i think still enjoyable to me. So if asked me to rate, actually is kind hard for me to say this and that is no1 or no2, because every music has different colors, so some might good with this, and some with that , but based on my personal taste, here's some of my fav that i listen currently:
HifiM8 - with HD650 / ATH3000ANV / Parterre / HD800 (M8 almost can drive anything with good)
Theorem - with DT1350 / Parterre / HD800
IPC/Theorem/Glacier - with my T1 - this combo drives T1 with satisfaction IMO.
IPC/HPP1/Glacier - with my HD800
IPC/CLASdb/Glacier - with my HD650 and TG334
HPP1 - with ATH3000ANV
AK120 - with UM3xRC / S-EM6
Tera - with Parterre / W4R
HM901 (with minibox card) - Parterre / DT1350 - i think the best one is with DT1350, there's a nice synergy going on between the two.
--- The HM901 is actually nice, but i feel like they don't really there for IEMs. I feel like the volume step is a bit too much (means powerful) for IEMs especially the sensitive one. Not sure with other card, but i feel like HM901 is better to go with 50ohm - 100ohm of impedance. I could be wrong though, this my personal opinion only. They do have capabilities of driving cans like HD650, but if i compared with my combos above, i much prefer them to HM901. But with DT1350...i feel like they meant to be together. It's a perfect match.
-- i have some more combinations, but at the moment, those above i use more often. :)
good idea !
Great idea, on the way very soon. (Kemang Common People ok?)
Sure, next trip to my favorite country is within the next 2 weeks.
