    CanJam SoCal 2022 (September 17-18, 2022)

    Cool picture on the head-fi home page. We do have the best and biggest wildfires to look forward to here in California. (Or is it depicting CA in a nuclear apocalypse?)

    Audio Measurements on a Headfi Budget

    Nothing intrinsically wrong with a 1/24th octave smoothing - it depends what it was smoothing. If your coupler has significant narrowband peaks and troughs that need correcting, it's not likely that any calibration file is going to be universally applicable. At least, not very accurately. There...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    Welcome buddy. It's been way too long! I hope Mark can persuade all squiglink contributors to sign up. It makes sense not just for cross-compatibility, but you really want to be able to reliably compare to Harman, or at least know that somebody else can closely reproduce your own preference target.

    LG V40 ThinQ

    Chris offers wise words which we should all live by :-) One nuance though... LG's Music app can't actually play back 16-bit 44 kHz PCM files without re-sampling, and it won't send a bit-perfect stream to your external DAC either. Below are some tests we did a while back on the V35. UAPP...

    LG V40 ThinQ

    What app were you using on the Samsung S20, and what headphones are you driving?

    LG V40 ThinQ

    You'll need to use an app like UAPP. This can send your digital signal, bit-perfect to any external DAC via USB. Your V40 would not be using the signal from its ESS DACs if you do this; it would simply act as a transport to the DAC in the iFi Go bar. TBH, an LG V40 is probably overkill just...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    Summary on the current state of the ER2SE tour Firstly - a huge big thank you to everyone who's contributed so far. It's grown way beyond just ER2SE :) We have some folks outside head-fi who are interested in joining this tour, so I wanted to put a quick post together to summarize the current...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    No worries @castleofargh. Best of luck with the move :) @hakuzen - I think you're up after Oratory then. We may be a couple of weeks out, but if you're still interested, please pm me to confirm a current shipping address. Is there anybody else in Europe interested in taking the tour kit after...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    Update - the remaining part of the tour kit has now reached Oratory. The plan from this point on is to ship the whole thing together. These are the current contents of the tour package: Etymotic ER2SE + tri-flange tips. Blon BL-05 (for those wanting a fun challenge measuring harmonic...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    A quick update on the current state of the tour. Earfonia's CKN50 + test nest are now with Oratory1990 (the rest of the tour kit is on its way to Oratory from Crinacle). Oratory has written an initial post with some measurements from the CKN50, which is an epic read. He points out a number of...

    Audio Measurements on a Headfi Budget

    Yes, you can do it. It's necessary to get your own HRTF for the best possible spatial surround-sound effects from in-ears. This is what's done for the Smyth Realizer and Impulsifer. A couple of caveats - the in-ear mics aren't perfect, because the presence of the mics change the effective...

    LG V60 ThinQ smartphone

    I believe all V40 models sold in the US were the same - LM-V405UA. If your V40 is carrier unlocked (which would seem to be the least Sprint/T-Mobile could do for you given their aggressive sun-setting) then you could consider switching to AT&T or Verizon. OTOH, the battery life on the V60 is...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    Happy 2022 everybody! I wish you all a year free from Greek letters :) A quick update on this little project - @earfonia's measurements have been added to the database: https://www.hypethesonics.com/er2se-database/ @earfonia has made a number of very significant contributions, which I can't...

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    That sounds like the coupler that @earfonia linked to. If so, that's definitely one of the better couplers out there. Very close to GRAS in terms of both FR and distortion measurements.
