Yeah, and then look at X5 thread :)  Now, people are talking about X5 is not being enough so they are getting E12 with a stack up kit lol!!!  And a few days later report back "uh, doesn't make too much difference, but I keep it anyway" Of course, if you want to drive 300 ohm load, you need external amp.  For in-ears - X5 will be great.  Btw, I think X1 will be the real deal.  Scaled down version of X5 for $100, that should be a killer!

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 😋
