While searching for that Japanese distributor I came across a website suggesting a new firmware should be released mid-september....:D

At this time I've listened what I put on the list but I'be found something that I would like to share.
In this page they recommend 'killer' recordings http://www.commonsenseaudio.com/cd.html
But what surprised me it's that they recommend Tracy Chapman's homonyms album entitled "Tracy Chapman". It's a record that I love and had in vinyl, cassette and cd but I've never considered like a "reference" recording. So I loaded the HM901 with the Flac and I'm surprised for all the detail, dynamics and balance in this album. Again, what surprised me it's how the HM901 bring to life a record that I though knew by memory. smily_headphones1.gif

I ordered my 901 with the balanced card. They never sent me any other card.

Probably means "eponymous" for the self-titled album?

I apologize.

The word "homónimo", in Spanish, has one meaning like "with the same name". It seems that "homonym" doesn't has that meaning in English.

Thank you for the correction!

REM actually has an album entitled "Eponymous"!

I have a question about the volume. I've seen several mention to the "big" step around the level 3 of volume. Well, I feel that, due the low distortion of the player, it's kinda hard to know how loud are you really playing your music, specially with in ear monitors. So, is it a way to calculate the loudness of the player, while using iem, to determine the safe levels of hearing? I would look for something like: "from zero to level 3.5 it's safe for long periods"... I think you got the idea.

Every iem have different sensitivity and impedance, different amp cards make differences too.  I think it's impossible to tell by only knowing the level of the volume knob.

Agree. My EarSonics SM3 has a sensitivity of 124dB and the HiFiMan RE-262 I had is only 95dB. This a difference of almost 30dB. Better just keep the volume at the lowest level you need to hear the music properly.

Depends on the card and iems you are using. With balanced amp card, on my SE5, 2 is too loud, the step before 2 is low but nice. With the 335 that are much more sensitive, two or three steps before 2 is plenty loud for me.

HM-901 + Balanced Card Incoming...

 

Hopefully, this will be my last stop. Will be comparing it to my AK120 and DX50+Pico Power
