Awesome thread. Picked up a lot of good info, been looking for mini mini USB cables for quite sometime, thankfully I found this thread. I'm really enjoying the audio of my phone, snapdragon N3,rooted,custom ROM, with V4A.V4A,has been unbelievable for this device, really changes it.
Anyway, I received my new IEMS, I went with Heir Audio, 8.a, and I'm loving them. They are perfect for my sound tastes. Plenty of bass, great vocals, I'm happy.
I've been listening using just the N3 and my Fiio e18. Both ways sound incredible, Fiio definitely has an improved sound. I purchased the E18 prior to the Heirs.
Just wondering if I could get some opinions about using a different amp/dac, as I want to get the most out of my IEMS.
I'm not adverse to getting a portable player either, I'm really interested in getting the full experience.
I also have an ipod, which a rarely use. I'm going to try it tonight though.
Last question, right now I'm using just the headphone jack as my mini USB cables broke, I have yet to hear the new IEMS with the USB cable. I was wondering if there would be a noticeable difference with the USB cable? I plan on getting USB audio player pro (read about it in this thread). Thanks in advance.
