    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I have the website up, ready to pull the pin on these if I knew more. Good find, as I could not find that cable in their Audio Cables section. Had to search. I have a couple of "cheapy" cables that I got off eBay, but they are a bit meh.

    I also like the look of that cable, ilianto. The only issue would be the size of the 2.5mm connectors. shame they do not mention it on the site!

    Sigh, well the break is definitely at the left hand side 2.5mm jack. I have tried pulling back the rubber surround and seeing if there is a visible break that I could just solder but there isn't. May just need to make a whole new connection. I have not had a cable break on a headphone before...

    I just pulled out my original nighthawk cable (not balanced) as I had replaced it long ago with some cheap ones on ebay. I remember them dropping out on the left hand side and now there is no sound out of the left. Is it worth repairing these? Easy to do? I cannot seem to find if anyone had...

    Yamaha HPH-200 (Pictures and review) [Updated]

    Clear upgrade. IMHO. I have both and I do not listen to my koss anymore. However, not nearly as portable. I think it is an upgrade in sound.

    Well, it is not the female input jack, thank god. I swapped the sides of the cable and it cut out on the other side, so definitely the cable. Tried cleaning the ends to no avail. I also tried the other cable that it came with (the thin one) and that one is broken at the jack connection...

    Can't.....say I have heard of them before! Will give them a listen. I am constantly amazed by how dependent ALL headphones sound based on the quality of the recording. For example, I will listen to one album on them and find the bass appears 'off' somehow. Like the headphones are not able to...

    Great betula, thanks for that. Was tossing up whether the black or red dragonfly would be sufficient but probably just worth while this my present and future cans to just get the mojo. Will let you know how I go. I am currently using an old Fiio e7 and it is... ok only.

    Ooooo, so what are you looking at for replacement pads? I guess I would have to pay shipping to Australia as well. Was it reasonable to you?

    Thanks, devodonaldson. Appreciate the extra idea. I like that the ifi has bluetooth. Do you still have the dragonfly red and use it? I don't like the idea that it is light on the bass. I like my bass! Very hard to try amp/dacs out here in Australia, as most of my choices are shipped to...

    Ok, so I am still needing a fresh perspective on a portable amp/dac solution for these cans. My local dealer says that the chord mojo is a league above the dragonfly's black and red. Can anyone who has used both comment? I have heard mixed reactions from people with the mojo.

    Thanks for that. Unfortunately not only are they out of stock but they also only ship to the USA, and I am in Australia. cheers though. Any other places you know of? Can' see anything on ebay.

    Yamaha HPH-Pro 500 Review

    Well well well. I bought a pair of round sheepskin brainwavz pads and what do you know? Much improved! Far better than the original pads or razor pads, and the comfort...my oh my. I am using these a lot more now due to the comfort and bass! Still not overwhelming, just there when you need...

    Rockbox Xduoo X3

    cheers Slater, I already read that before installing rockbox and remember it well from my sansa clip. Just thought I was missing something in regards to being able to change the gain switch on the X3 in rockbox. So I gather that I have to port back to the original software to change it and...
