Capri, i'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong w/ ur ears. Everyone has different preferences. Sometimes i'd go as loud as 45..

For long listening session, i never go too loud though.. just to be safe

 

haha merry xmas to you too oscar

 

thank you :)

did anyone try to hook up their ak120 with iphone or generally ios device ? Since the launch of ak10 it could work :).

Does not work as usb dac with iphone/ipad using cck. Requires too much power, but does work if you use a powered usb hub

haha I knew it. Did you try it ?

Yes, and I did get it to work with my ipad mini retina using a cheap powered usb hub from amazon. Only issue is you are tethered to an outlet so you can't use it on a plane to watch movies with your ipad.

Too short? How long is your battery last? What volume level did you use?

Those who paired up their modded ak120 especially b mod with rsa sr-71b, does ur setup get hot after 2 or 3 hours of music? Mine got quite hot after some times
post #4888 of 6936
My B mod is paired with intruder. Can get warm but mostly only use for 1-2 hours at a time.
post #4889 of 6936

Yup, i'm pair with SR-71b, it's quite hot actually. I did remove the back cover and saw the insulator on top of the DAC chip had sign of heat as the insulator color changed, but i don't think it going to melt the plastic insulator. Maybe should have add a heatsink to it haha.

I noticed my battery life is short too. But I'm wondering if something is just wrong with my battery. According to Vinnie you'd generally lose 2 hours of battery life vs a stock unit. So :(...
