    Earbuds Round-Up

    Since it's 2.5mm, I only use them with the ES100 and the iBasso DC01 dongle. They seem pretty easy to drive?

    +1 for the Snow Lotus 2.5mm - I prefer it to a lot of other "TOTL" earbuds

    I would say that'll be very likely. Lola/N8s were my favorite CIEMs at CanJam NYC 2020.

    I went with the N8s strictly for the 2-pin hardware, comparing the two (walking between the two booths at CanJam) they're very very similar. You're probably right. Probably in a similar vein, I don't really like planar gear either.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Oh definitely, I don't like the term "basshead" but I'm definitely basshead-adjacent. For reference, my preferred headphones are a pair of slightly modded Fostex TH900. From memory, I wouldn't say there was more bass on the N8s compared to the A12t, but it "hits" different. I can't really...

    Grado Fan Club!

    I think all couriers (at least in the US) are re-prioritizing their deliveries to accommodate for the sudden increase in demand for urgent items.

    Damn in the City too. That the Hudson you're looking at? Not a bad view.

    CanJam NYC 2020 Impressions Thread (February 15-16, 2020)

    Yup, I spent a little bit of both days at the 64 AUDIO booth and in the end decided on getting a pair of N8s. Should be arriving in a couple of weeks. Literally cannot wait. And I completely agree with your cable observations - I even asked Kalani about it. Already emailed Moon Audio/PlusSound...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Can I trouble you for some impressions? Not a lot of English literature out there on these earbuds yet.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Not a lot of information out there in English. I just did a little researching and the only real in-depth stuff have been in Thai(?) or something. Nah, I understood you were coming from a good place and meant to be helpful. And in theory I do agree with your principle but there's a big...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I've tried the Liebeslieds but the weight and form factor didn't work for me. First I'm hearing of the DQSM Turandot - looks promising. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll definitely look into them. What is a reserve pair?

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Yeah, always used the travel pouch/boxes. And they do sound really amazing, but I'm not really into their stuff anymore.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Yeah, probably came on a little strong there and full disclosure my last pair of Rose earbuds were late 2018 but I've had 5 pairs of their earbuds and they've all failed within the year for some reason or another. I'm willing to take responsibility for some of the wood Masya I used as daily...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Rose earbuds are always a bit finicky to get a great fit for me and until someone can definitively prove to me that their product can last more than a year, I'm not particularly interested. Would probably prefer going for ZoomFreds or something
