Common, not that drastic :)  But I do agree, the width of soundstage shrinks...

The TRRS-to-TRS adapter makes no change to regular TRS or mic'ed TRRS plugs. doesnt even lower the hiss. 

But the other MicroUSB-TRRS adapter does makes some change. like an impedance resistor.

I dunno about iem's (I dont have any other then re 400B in possesion), but on full sized momentums the sound stage locks inside the head when used withot the adapter.  I've seen measurments that the channel separation (hope that I translated the term correctly) without adapter is only 18 dB istead of 90 or something. This is pretty much what I hear on momentum - the crosstalk is so big that stereo image is severely reduced

Well, finally I have received my HM 700 and It's awesome, the sound is pretty neutral not so warm, not so cold (at least from my experience, very limited if I may add). Just got the RE400b IEM and I'm very pleased.

I'm just wonderin' what other IEM you could recommend for this DAP, besides the obvious RE600b, something We can benefit from the balanced output.

ANyway, I'm very happy with this player.

Glad you'r enjoying it. 

Don't know other 'balanced' gear for the HM700 besides the Hifiman IEM stuff. sorry

I didnt like this player at all. It would have helped if the IEMs were at least good. Using regular cans is a pain with the hanging thin wire adapter and the interface is just blah. My Ipad kills it in power and sound quality. Overall I would say these are only good for people that just happen to like the included IEMs since I don't know of any other good IEM using the same balanced connector.

Hi to all and congratulations @zelda for the review :)

 

I've a particular question: does the HM-700 compatible with Meenova adaptor?

Anyone tried?

 

Thanks_
