    Audeze LCD i4 TOTL In-Ear Monitor Discussion

    @KMann My pair also exhibits the same behavior. The left unit is quiet when is inserting and the right unit clicks when inserting. It was previously said that it is due to the diaphragm being ultra thin, sensitive to air pressure. If that is true, then why don't all units have this "issue"?

    Audeze LCD i4 TOTL In-Ear Monitor Discussion

    Hi guys I am a new owner of the lcd i4s, coming from the i3s, isine 20s. My current setup is Lotoo Paw Gold Touch > Cipher i3/i4 > LCD i4 and testing them with IU's "Love Poem" album. I was scared that like the i3s, I will have to even add more EQ on top of the cipher, but oh am I so wrong...

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    My i4s are coming this Monday. Is your recommendation of not using cipher2 for i4 based on no need for mobility alone or is sq part of it as well?

    iFi audio's worst kept secret: the hip-dac!

    Is there a version of this DAC with no built-in battery? I always dread having to send back an item for battery replacement...

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    Thank you for your dedication to the isine and lcd ix series :) Your review provides a great insight for individuals who are wondering which sonic qualities of the 10, 20, or the i3, is the most appropriate for their taste. And just to add in the summary part of your review (I am pasting them...

    AKG's New Flagship IEM - N5005

    I am enjoying them :) they are actually better than an lcd i3 ran through 3.5mm. Using cipher cable, they are on par.

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    My lcd i3s just arrived today and what I can say is, thank goodness I've ordered a lightning to usb c adapter because lcd i3s to Lotoo Paw Gould Touch through the 3.5mm cable was horrible beyond expectations. Cipher cable is a must to make the lcd i3s listenable.

    CanJam NYC 2019 Impressions Thread

    I went Saturday and that was my first CanJam. Man what a blast! I brought my lady with me (still debating whether it was a good idea or not lol, oh well). It was an amazing opportunity to experience gears coming from both ends of price spectrum. Saves me from buying blind. Nice people from...

    Lotoo PAW Gold Touch - Touchscreen, 4.4mm Bal, USB DAC, Bluetooth

    Was debating between this and the cayin N8 for my focal clear and adromeda, but eventually ended up with the LPGT because it sounded cleaner for both said headphones.

    AKG's New Flagship IEM - N5005

    TX-500s worked out really well, thanks everyone for the recommendation :) But for me, needing to replace eartips every 3-4 weeks is a great no-no. So I started playing around with other eartips and it just happened that my andromedas were on my table. So I took out the silicon tips that came...

    Help~ Need recommendation for beautiful vocals.

    Long story short I used to own JhAudio angie and so far it's the only headphone/iems that had ever made me tear up while listening to Rebeca Ferguson; not with se846, nor with ca andromeda, neither with hd6xx. I guess what's been missing is the thickness or full bodiness of vocals? I am...
