DAP Suggestions? (No Sansa clips pls) - Page 2

If you do a blind test listening to your favorite music, are you able to identify which dap has 5.5Ω's and which one has 0.5Ω's?

Probably depends on whether or not you are using sensitive IEM's....

Which ones are the sensitive IEM's? Examples please.

I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't, even with my Shure SE425s, which get a 1.5 dB spike in the very high frequencies due to the output impedance. The difference is too small and the affected frequencies are too high. With other IEMs like the UE Triple Fi 10, the difference grows to 4 dB and might well be audible.

With flat impedance headphones, I certainly couldn't ABX it.
