Yup. They are separate. I just mentioned those two, as they are most known. Audinist HUD MXII is solid. It's not outstanding, but it is nothing short of solid and very practical.

Great work by Hidition. Those in Korea should visit Hidition. Tell them I told them about you(just say a student reviewer :p). They are really welcoming to visitors(they apparently have a English speaker at their HQ as well).

I looked at they're website, do they have any midrange 2-3 driver models? I didn't see any, the high-end stuff is out of my price range.

NT-RM(recording masters) is a 3 driver mid-high range(~$700) model. But they don't have anything else but single driver models(though they are still pretty nice).

I've always wanted to try Hidition or visit them. Damn work.

You should try to find some time :p It's a fairly quick trip(near Seoul University). Though the hq is really hidden. I had some trouble finding it at first.

I live far enough from Seoul, but get to visit SNU once in a couple of month or so. Hopefully they have some parking spots nearby...

 

Guided by your suggestion, I looked up some reviews on the MX-1/MX-2. MX-2 doesn't sound like much of an upgrade if not a sidegrade. Found a classified for a MX-1 (KRW99000 shipped) and jumped on it - I've seen it go for less but whatever, still like half the price of a new unit. Should be interesting cuz I also ordered a HIFImeDIY dac (the async version) just a few hours prior. I have enough computers/tablets and whatnot to keep a spare dac or two at that price :)

Lol. Tell me what you think about them.

For those in Korea: http://item2.gmarket.co.kr/Item/DetailView/Item.aspx?goodscode=591151798

Q701 is selling for 51,000won. Something is wrong, but what is there to lose? If it's fake or defect, you can send it back. If it's real, you get a Q701 for 1/5 of price.

Hi guys! :) How is everyone? Korean living in London here. Lived in Europe since childhood, I but I still speak the language very well. I always have a good time when I go back and visit friends and relatives.

 

Audio-wise, I'm pretty much settled on what I have now. My portable set up is pretty much the ipod shuffle and the apple earphones. I prefer to enjoy my music at home. 

I haven't listened to much K-pop at all, mainly because I don't know where to start. - a few songs by Youme, Busker busker ... and maybe a few more others...

 

These days I mostly listen to classical and 60's rock, motown, soul, jazz.

Welcome! You should visit Korea sometime. It's fun!

Hello! I am a Korean high school student living in Korea, that grew up in the United States for the past 10 years. I am pretty new to this hobby, but never knew there was a Korean community here at Head-Fi. Pleased to be here, and hope we get along! By the way, I got my InEar LivePro 2 reshelled at Hidition last week. It should arrive in few days, and their customer service is great! Will post some pictures when I get them :3

They do have great customer service. It was nice talking to them. It's also nice to see another high school student! Happy listening.

This is an interesting thread. I think because of this thread, I will make a trip to Korea to hang out a little bit in September.
