I will first start by declaring that I'm no audiophile, and that this is just a review coming from an average consumer. I know a lot of you will facepalm by my review, but I will post it...
The CAL! 2 is a big improvement over the first version. Creative brands this as a "premium headphone" on the box, but is it? First thing I noticed was the soundstage. It's MUCH better than...
As nicely explained by Victor in his review of the same CIEM, this is the previous flagship model from FitEar. In fact, unless you are married to the emphasised bass of the MH335DW, this would...
First of all, I am not a audiofile with several pairs of $1,000 headphones. I am more of a casual listener but I do like good sound. This is also my first review on head-fi so give me some feedback...
I love these headphones! So comfortable you will forget you're wearing them. My cousin once commented "This is the best bass I've ever heard in a headphone!" While I know there are headphones out...

Maybe... but when I read that Anedio d2 is in another league....
I don't know... I'm reading many online impressions.
Another dac I'm reading of is Audio-gd Master7 and Lynx Hilo.post #483 of 7814/12/13 at 6:19ampost #484 of 7814/12/13 at 6:37ampost #485 of 7814/12/13 at 7:17amQuote:
Are you not interested in DSD?post #486 of 7814/12/13 at 8:02am
So and so.
Even if I have some sacd iso it could always be converted to 192/24 or 96/24 pcm file.
DSD is a plus but it's not necessary for me to be on my future dac.

I would think that most people who ordered would have just barely received their unit, and not had much time to form impressions. Apparently Matrix sold out of the first run and there's now a short wait until the next batch is ready. So there must be at least a few users out there.post #490 of 7814/20/13 at 9:11ampost #491 of 7814/25/13 at 2:11pmpost #492 of 7814/25/13 at 3:27pmThread Starterpost #493 of 7814/29/13 at 9:14amQuote:
I was also wondering the same thing.....post #494 of 7814/29/13 at 9:44amThread Starter
Sorry, I haven't heard the Teac unit. I did a review of one of their network streamers back in the day and had some rather harsh words for it. Since then I get no replies to emails about potential reviews. Oh well.post #495 of 7814/29/13 at 12:52pmQuote:
Ha Ha......they have locked you out of all future products......It always astonishes me when companies do this
