I have had my AK380 for over a month now and its time to post a review Before I had the AK380 I had an NW-ZX2 for 6 months, an AK240 for nearly two years and the AK120 before that, so yes, I...
I have tried the JBL Synchros line of s300, s500, and s700. As it turns out, the low end model sounds the best to me. These are on ear design, cups are about 3 inches wide. Headband and yokes are...

Gear mentioned in this thread:
Yes, the iTransport is the very first MFI iPod DAC, but now there are more and more development, especially portable DAC, that is Apple MFI.
Figures, that will only be too easy for us wouldn't it.
*sigh* Why does Hong Kong Apple Store have such mediocre customer service, made me ditch my plan of getting a Classic as a DAP.
Any thoughts of hooking an amp to the new iBasso DX50?
The DX50 has no optical out, only analog and coaxial. Any analog amp should do a decent job, and the Headamp Pico Slim, Headstage Arrow, or even the JDS Labs C5 should do a decent job.
(just did some 24bits/96khz to 24/48khz conversions and noticed extra hiss in them when played on ipod touch)

No, it will just be down sampled from the iPod.
