Also, is there an affordable replacement cable for the x3?

You could try this ..though the cable is not detachable

Looks like Sidy has some new releases.

 

Twister's review is also on their Taobao page. Very cool.

I want the hk2 and kt100😉
post #3920 of 5008
I'm getting the hk2. If it's an improvement over the hk1 that will be awesome. The hk1 is an epic phone that I still use from time to time.

The frequency response graph shows it will be awesome 😊.. The kt100 is a high resolution earbud will 99% pure silver cable 😃

Just got my KZ-LP from when they were like half the price. They came in great-looking hard carrying case, build is solid and the earpads are f-ing glorious! Awesome buy for the price! Hope they'll sound good as well!

Was browsing Taobao a month ago when i came across a DIY DAC/Amp

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.25.l3Njer&id=35064149539&ns=1#detail

Its available for around  27usd

 

Volume Knob and 3.5mm output

 

USB input and line out

 

Dimension (quoting Taobao page) : L 80.5mm x W 57mm x H 28mm


Xiaomi Piston's case as comparison =)

 

 

 

Spec: PCM2706 + ES9023 + AD823

 

no technical information about this dac/amp is available, but its said to be able to power 16-150ohm headphones.

Another shot on the internals =)

 

Connected to my Takstar Pro 80.

 

Oh and this dac supports OTG

I kinda wanna pick up your G989-HD BHazard.  Saw it on ebay.  How does the E-95 compare to it?

So far I love the KZ-LP headphones. The build quality is just incredible for the price and sound is great as well. Am listening through X3 as DAC right now and I hear slight harshness in London Grammar songs on certain passages that shouldn't be there. Might try later from X3 as DAP to see if the amp section can get rid of it.

 

Thanks @bhazard for pointing these out! I would really want to know what does the description on the taobao page say about these. The english translation doesn't make sense to me.

 

Also, I received only one cable and I'm not sure if I should have gotten two or not. I was kinda looking forward to the in-line mic cable.

 

Here are a few pics I took because they are so sexy! :)

what do u need to translate?

post #3929 of 5008
With IM50/IM03 memory wire the trick is to find a good roomy case for it. Takes awhile to get the shape right, then need a big case to keep from messing it up. I'm traveling this week, thus hasn't posted much in the last few days wink.gif, but once I'm back I will post a link to a case I got from Amazon...

Actually, here it is http://www.amazon.com/Case-Star-Rectangle-Bluetooth-Enclosure/dp/B00GOLVYWM/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1403262701&sr=8-7&keyw

Takes awhile for a smell to air out but it's a great one for memory wire headphones.

Well basically the whole thing :D There are bits about them being OEM seller to western brands but I guess it only applies to the body of these headphones, surely they don't have the same drivers as VModas, right? 

Also, there's something under the 6th photo which translates to english rughly as "these are not hifi headphones" and I'm not sure what I should make of that.

 

If you would be so kind and translate it just so I know what I actually bought, that would be peachy :) (link to product page http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39260593836)
