Thanks,Andy

Andy, are you thinking of the 802? If so, I agree with LECW. There is no real comparison. The 802 is far superior. smily_headphones1.gif

Yes, I was thinking of the 802, that's great that its leaps and bounds better. How about build quality and UI? I've always liked hifiman but the built quality of the IEMs I have bought in the past have been anything but good. Is this something you think would last for years to come?

Howdy, considering how good the price of the Hifiman IEMs were, I think there's only so much one could expect.

 

As for the DAP, it seems ok. I know someone who had dropped it a time or two. Well, it is still working fine. Of course, you don't expect it to be buillt like the AK 240, which costs twice its price. But I think it will last a few years. Depending always on how you treat your DAPs. In any event, Hifiman has a fantastic after sales service if you have any problems. 

 

Hope that helps. :atsmile:

One last question, which do you prefer, the DX100 or the HM802? Which would consider your main "go to"!

Thanks for answering all of these questions, it is a lot of money to spend on something blindly.

Howdy, for pure listening pleasure, the HM 802. :L3000:

I replied you under the 901 thread already. Got the new firmware updated in my 802, so far so good. But it didn't have any problem before the update anyway. I think I'm happier with the 802 than the 901, probably because I listen to vocals mostly.

Definitely! The improvement is pretty obvious: much faster start up (other than the first time when the player need to refresh the music database), CUE support, smoother and more accurate wheel operation, and some others. I don't see any reason not to update the firmware.

Enjoying the 802 w Minibox card w my ESW11LTD now, can't image the sound can be any better from a portable player. smily_headphones1.gif

post #90 of 123

am i the only person on this earth who loves what the 801 sounds like but wonders why the hell hifiman thinks its cool to just stop supporting it with any type of firmware updates at all, despite the fact that they made all these grand but totally empty promises about apple lossless support and gapless playback!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Its so frustrating that they just walked away from the 801, and left all the 801 owners out to dry, saying basically "upgrade to the 901 or screw you".

 

thoughts?
