Linum Super Bax
Connection: 2pin, 3.5mm TRS
Iem: Zeus-XRA (XIV set up)
Pros: Small size, flexible, performance/value ratio
Cons: 2pin connectors look cheap and bended. Only available in 3.5mm TRS, would be better to have memory wire.
Sound Stage and Presentation: The stage is just the right size. It’s not too huge nor too small. However, the depth of the stage isn’t on par with TOTL cable. The sound tends to go a bit to slightly warmer than neutral (Zeus is kinda...
The many cables of the ifi iDSD Black
Having owned this since late April, (thank you so much Pat for the opportunity to use and review this product!) I have had the pleasure of using this DAC with various home and portable audio products. Since there are so many reviews dealing with this product and its capabilities, I decided to show about its versatility. Therefore I will show you this DAC and the cables used to connect to the following items:
Cayin i5, Pioneer XDP-300R, Astell & Kern AK...

This works with foobar200 default equalizer. I recommend keeping the volume low and a break every 30-40 minutes so you don't hurt yourself.
Please let me know what you think and enjoy.

Superlux HD661 is Superlux's cheap clone to the Sony's legendary MDR-7506(Minus the Audio Technica Wing-Type headband). Due to Superlux carelessly aiming for the MDR-7506 frequency response(Since they could also aim for Balanced Frequency response because Sony designed the 7506 with refined mids), you will have to deal with the "Treble Cannon" nature of the HD661. Songs that has a very forward treble will be unbearable with this cans that you might throw them away.
The last regular firmware version of the FiiO X3II digital audio player is 2.0 at FiiO's site. An interesting previous version is 1.4, the last with OTG support (adding storage on the USB port, which is not officially supported but works for most).
FiiO allows the firmwares to be customised with alternative images and graphical properties (colours, font sizes...). FiiO shares instructions on how to customise a firmware, how to install a firmware, and its own large text font firmware....

Those who have not heard of the place – open up a world map (do they still have those – or has Google Maps killed it already?) – and look to the right side of India. I sort of proudly say to all that I am Bangladeshi even though...

Chicolom's FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Why are Gaming Headsets often said to be inferior to regular headphones?
In general, headphones (especially "audiophile" or "hi-fi" headphones) tend to have better sound quality than your typical gaming headsets. This is due to a number of reasons, such as: a design more focused on maximizing sound quality instead of maximizing stylish "gaming" looks, an Open Vs. Closed design (most gaming headsets are closed), and simply having more experience...
NO UNSOLICITED PRIVATE MESSAGES ASKING ABOUT GAMING HEADPHONES. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS ON THE THREAD.
This quick guide is for Headphone gaming WITH virtual surround. NOT stereo, so those looking at this guide as a headphone guide for stereo gaming will need to note that my reviews aren't based on stereo gaming. I play most games with virtual surround DSPs like Dolby Headphone and THX Tru Studio, so I CAN'T make suggestions to those who wanna play in plain stereo, as I find most headphones to...
