  1. Multiple iem cable impressions

    Linum Super Bax Connection: 2pin, 3.5mm TRS Source: AK380Cu+AmpCu 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...
  2. Better Audio Quality for Crossfade M-100

    Hear is an audio fix to get cleaner audio for M-100: 55Hz -1 77Hz 1 110Hz 0 156Hz -1 220Hz -2 311Hz 0 440Hz 2 622Hz 3 880Hz 3 1.2kHz 2 1.8kHz 1 2.5kHz 0 3.5kHz 1 5kHz 3 7kHz 4 10kHz 3 14kHz 2 20kHz 1 Frequency file - [URL]https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1h9rzzhe4siSHhfX0NNOGRXTDg/view?usp=sharing[/URL] 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.
  3. FiiO X3II DAP firmwares with custom themes

    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....
  4. Flawless Album Suggestions

    Well, I think it is safe to say anyone reading this article is an Audiophile, Audiophile wannabe or somewhere between the two. I also think that the threads on this website are a great resource for any grade of audiophile to mine for new and excellent music to discover. One of the threads I found to be interesting and very helpful is the Flawless Album Suggestion thread. What is a "Flawless Album"? Well here is the definition as laid out in post 1 of the thread "The criteria is simple:...
  5. The Audiophile Scene in a Third World Country - FUN READ

    This will be a cathartic experience on my part since I haven’t written for a while after leaving The Huffington Post.   A little background, I live in NYC but was brought up in Bangladesh (used as a representative third world country among many others). 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...
  6. Chord Mojo FAQ

    I'm creating this to answer all the repeat questions in the main Mojo threads.   Power   Q. My Mojo gets noticeably warm while charging and playing music. Is this OK? Yes. The Mojo uses 1.7W of power, so it will get comfortably warm during use, and has thermal cut-outs that prevent it overheating, even if charged at the same time. Mojo actually has three independant thermal cut outs a special high temperature battery and very sophisticated charging circuitry . Picking up on an...

  11. Brooko's Test Tracks

    So I can keep them in one place - and refer to a list (by link) with my reviews, I've compiled a list of the test tracks I use.  Some are definitely for a set purpose (eg Amber Rubarth's Binaural "Tundra" for imaging and sound-stage), whilst others are simply tracks I know well - and use so that I can cross check headphones for a wide range of suitability across genres. Still others are there simply because they reflect my eclectic taste in music   All of the music listed I do actually own...

  13. The Best BASS Headphones ( a Head-Fi Wiki)

                Group 1  "Cannons"   Cannons are headphones that produce an excessive to enormous amount of impact that can be felt from the cups to the ears  and beyond. They vibrate the skull, they vibrate/tickle the cheeks, upper neck and cause physical sensations. This physical sensation can and does interfere with the accurate delivery of what are widely referred to as good response curves. The "mids" as they are the adjoining range are most affected by the over boosted low...

  15. Ibasso DX50 FAQ

    The Ibasso DX50 is a $239 baby brother to the $830 DX100. Smaller, less powerful, with less onboard storage (8gb vs. 64gb) and using a Wolfson WM8740 24Bit DAC Chip opposed to the ESS Sabre 9018 desktop-class DAC chip in the DX100. However, with a nice onboard amp and a crystal clear analog lineout, the DX50 is quite a bargain and flying off the shelves. Lots of owners means lots of questions, answers and useful tips. This FAQ is created as an attempt to answer some of the most common...
