I have x3 and x5 and don't need an amp😜...but the sound is definitely worth it and more😁

Speaking of amps, I bought the Fire Phoenix DAC 02 desktop USB/headphone amp a couple of years ago for my son. The sound quality is definitely very good for the money, and it has held up well to teenager abuse. Penon Audio carries it: http://penonaudio.com/FIRE-PHOENIX-DAC-02

No DX90? :)

 

I'm actually looking forward to X1.  X5 is great, but a bit too bulky to drag around.  I have been using HM700 with included armband, great when exercising, but handicapped by balanced output wiring (though RE-400B sounds friggin' awesome, that soundstage width is mindblowiing!).   Oh, and X7 android beast is coming up next :)

 

Btw, how does KC06A sounds paired up with X5?  I really enjoy DM2 with X5, though had to downgrade from fw2.0 to fw1.2 because the latest one sounds a bit neutral versus 1.2 being a little more colored which I enjoyed better.  X5 (fw1.2) + DM2 (w/red duct) => slamming bass impact!!!

Thought I'd revive this thread, if only for a little while.

Anyway, I'd like to ask a question: Don Scorpio Drama or Dolphin and why?

 

Thanks in advance.

I purchased a pair of $11 headphones based on a recommendation here.  They came in a very unmarked package without even identifying the brand from China.  And the headphones did not even show R or L.

 

Have not broken them in yet.  And I am realizing that I don't really like IEM type headphones that much; prefer ear buds.  Anyway if the phones start sounding good I will go back to AlliExpress and figure our what I had purchased.

Kc06 + soundmagic a10 (bass boost on) is a great combo. Takes some of the sizzle off of the kc06 and gives it the low end kick in the pants it needs. Soundstage is nicer also.

Sizzle baby sizzle 😋

Sidy DM2 just came in, thumbs up!

 

They're ugly as s**t, but they sound great! Very full sound! Where it falls short to the kc06 in high end detail, it makes up for in the low end (red filters used)

 

Well worth their price tag, and come with a fair amount of accessories. Silver tips are a waste.

As I've been told, silver tips won't be included moving forward.  Yes, the bass punch is awesome!!!

Tenores vs kc06a or something else? Close to pulling the trigger now.
