    Sonic Sense Pro Audio

    I saw they were asking for crowdfunding to post their headphone, speaker, etc. samples a few months back but that's it, they fell off the radar.      In the past I've ordered from Sonic Sense on two previous but separate occasions, first for the DT880s and then the Presonus' Eris E5. Both...

    Great review. If I didnt know any better, I'd have said you were "on the money!"

    I am moving to Athens in August so please do let me know if there's another one like this happening. If not, I will be there next year but I do hope to see some good photos. Have fun.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    @swspiers +1 to his POV as I have a similar experience, albeit with the iPad Air.    which says a lot about the iPad. But thinking out aloud, I'm wondering if this means that you need a really good amp like the Lyr and co. to take the 400i to the 'next' level.

    Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC

    FWIW, I use the DC-1 with my Fidelio L1s and I am usually listening at the -20 to -40 setting on the DC-1 with absolutely no hissing whatsoever. The X2s should be even easier because according to Innerfidelity, at 35 Ohms, you need ~0.089 VRMS to reach 90 dB SPL on the X2, compared to the L1s...

    Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC

    +1 to that. I have been reading Keith's posts over in the DAC side of things as well and on Emotiva's own forum. Good stuff. Thank you. I hope you keep it up Keith. Patience is a virtue with these endeavours which is NEVER easy to come by, leave alone sustain.  I know I need clarity to see...

    Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC

    This is GOLD Keith. I am a grown man but I am not afraid to say this- I love Emotiva! I get gooey eyed when I see the DC-1 on my media center every morning and the proudest day of my audiohead life was when my 6-year old said this- "daddy, can I listen to some Lego Chima music on the DC-1 DAC"...

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    Hello folks. FYI, the E5 is on Massdrop for USD 149.99 (lowest join price). My dilemma- I'm torn between a straight up headphone amp like the Fiio E12 and a USB/DAC amp like the E5 to use with my phone on the go. I have an LG G3 which according to gsmarena has very good audio output already via...

    NEW 2015 - HIFIMAN HE400S

    Makes sense because the connectors are 'unique'. I avoid putting them back in the box because of the connectors. They are a curse for those with thick fingers. I had my wife do it till she gave me a cold "seriously" look one day.

    NEW 2015 - HIFIMAN HE400S

    I know Tyll finds the hifiman's to be tizzy but IMO they are not. I held off on buying a hifiman for that precise reason. IME , they were tizzy to begin with and I was a bit disappointed but give them a day or two and whoa mamma! They seem to straddle the line beautifully... or maybe it's...
