Talk about comfort, I feel almost nothing with these tips and lightweight housing for as long as I want for listening to my music. My ears are super sensitive to anything intrusive. I admire those whose ears can take a abuse such as deep penetration. :)
This little amp deserves some recognition. It's not as neutral as my favorite Leckerton, but it's a damn good amp with dead quite background and some punchy bass. It has dual batteries with enough power.
I decided to recable this little LOD to complete my year of DIY'ing. Yes luckily I still have some time left for 2013.
I'll look on eBay, thanks.
As for the image posting, nah, I got an email and a PM about restrictions as a new user, and not being able to post images was one. I would post an imgur link, but that's pretty much the same and I don't want to bend the rules at all if possible on my first day.
With regular single-ended drive you have 2 signals: Left +, Right + and ground, both sides share the same ground. With balanced driving, you use 4 signals: Left +, Left -, Right + and Right -. This means that instead of a "passive" ground signal, you get an active negative signal, pulling the driver in the opposite direction. = More control, more power, better channel separation. With my CIEMs it's the most amazingly 3D experience I've ever heard. Tons of detail suddenly available because the soundscape isn't as crowded, everything has its own clearly defined place (on good recordings, naturally).
ALO does sell them separately.
And I'm sure other do as well.
That's a pretty reasonable first step. Sould set you up with some pretty high quality sound right off the bat!
Great start! Now the smartest thing you can do is get out while you're still on speaking terms with your wallet and never come back to Head-Fi.
