I am new to the Head-Fi scene. I've always been interested in Audio gear though. I've had some decent lower budget setups for my home and car. I finally came to the realization that I spend 8 hours a day with iPhone earbuds in my ears listening to music while I work. I figured since I spend so much time listening to music in my cube, that I should invest in a good rig.
I've been listening to Slacker Radio on my Galaxy S3 with my old iPhone earbuds, but I recently found my Grado SR60s I got a while back and starting using them again. I had stopped using them because they made my ears hurt after long listening, and they were too noisy for my last office. I've started a new job that has better cube dividers so I pulled them back out. I've enjoyed the new level of detail. I got new ear cushions and messed around with the band a bit. I can now wear them all day at work with only minor pain in my right ear.
I started reading on here about the FiiO E6 and you can't beat the price so I got one. It arrived to day and I've been listening to it sense. It's pretty impressive considering the price and size.
I also read about folks using the Sana Fuse as their MP, which surprised me because I had one of those in a box deep in a closet. I dug it out yesterday and charged it up. I pulled over some music to it and then RockBox'ed it after I read about how the Fuse doesn't playback at the correct speed. Huh?
I also have some Etymotic ER6i IEMs. I'm not to fond of them, but I use them when I'm mowing the lawn and other yard work, lol. The FiiO E6 seemed to help them out some, but still not my favorite.
Now I'm thinking about getting a whole new rig. I want some new over the ear cans , a DAC, and an Amp. Not sure if I'll get a DAC/AMP combo or get separate units. Then the remaining question is if I use the Fuse, S3 or some other MP. Not sure yet.
I've really enjoyed doing my research on here. There are some amazing rigs out there. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
I'm open to suggestions on what I should get.
