post #16 of 21

Very enjoyable read, looking forward to your review! bigsmile_face.gif Am headed to Seoul myself in 2013, so custom IEMs might be a neat break from all the sight seeing.

Today's rig: iPod 5G, homemade SPC LOD, RSA Blackbird balanced amp, homemade copper cable, NT 6 Pro.

Writeup on the NT 6 Pro is still in progress. In lieu of a proper review I'll see if I can assemble some early impressions and thoughts I've noted here and there about it.

Question, in your opinion is going balanced worth the extra time effort and investment? If so I might invest in a balanced amp and a balanced cable for my future 4A

I don't think balanced amps are definitively better than single-ended. For that matter, the rationale for the balanced signal chain doesn't make a huge amount of sense at the scale of mobile devices.

Some amps which are very good happen to also be balanced. In which case it behooves you to use them in balanced configuration. So when you plan your budget for one, be sure to also budget for the cost of an appropriate third-party headphone cable, too.

Hello,

 

Great impressions. My wife and I are considering the weekend in Seoul and I thought I might check Hidition. Did the demos you tried give you a good idea of the sound quality of the real NT6-Pro. If he is revamping his product line, will he add high-en products ? When is the review coming :)
