    Looking for a DAP between USD $750-1000

    The last time I visited Head-Fi, the newest DAPs I can remember were the iBasso DX80 and FiiO X7. I am completely out of the current loop and overwhelmed by new options, to say the least. I am looking to buy a new DAP to use as a source for my home theater stereo and on-the-go listening. I need...

    It's been a few years. What are the current "best" IEMs for approximately USD $70?

    My 18-year-old daughter wants a new pair of IEMs for music, TV, etc. She's not an audiophile but would like something nicer than her standard Skull Candy fare. At that price range, the last killer earbud I know of is the HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline. Are there other recommendations I wouldn't have...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    Guys, I can't find the original FLC8 stock cable on Ali or LMUE and I really want an inexpensive (< $50), functional cable that will not stretch my FLC8S' sockets or jack up my sound. I'm not even going to consider stuff like Moon Audio because I'd just as soon buy an entire pair of IEMs for the...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    So is the reigning solution for cable frustrations to pick up the original FLC8 cable, instead; or are there any inexpensive aftermarket options currently available? I'm not a believer in cables fundamentally altering sound signatures or anything like that. I don't want a $7,000 liquid crystal...

    The discovery thread!

    Well, SWIII it is. Jim wouldn't trade the DZ7 for the QT5s; which, on one hand, sounds perfectly fair. But under the specific circumstances I'm in, if I were him I would have extended that olive branch to my customer. After all, I've already lost $80 in unrecoverable shipping costs for an IEM he...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    And I would have no way of measuring that accurately. Is there any way to be positive based on the packaging or something?

    The discovery thread!

      Based on what the two of you are saying I might skip the SWIII, as I am treble sensitive and I hate sibilance. Even a little bit of it irritates me; god forbid it should be exaggerated.   I'm crossing my fingers and hoping Jim will trade me a pair of DZ7 because at this rate I have no...

    Zero Audio ZH-DWX10 DUOZA dual dynamic driver iem

    I've never felt like the Duozas had any weak points, per se, in terms of build quality. The housings are massive and bulletproof and the cord is my absolute favorite out of my entire IEM collection. I've never had any concerns about the strain reliefs, either; but yeah, at this point I think...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    I think for me the solution will be either to simply never remove the red sub-filter (which I love and prefer), or to very rarely do so. I've found that the sub-filter is very difficult to replace with tips and the nozzle inserted, as they force the edge of my rather large fingers away from the...

    Zero Audio ZH-DWX10 DUOZA dual dynamic driver iem

    I don't know if anyone will read this, but I have a neat story to tell.   The other day I noticed one of my pairs of IEM were missing: I couldn't find my Duozas anywhere. I love them; they're important to me. I searched everywhere at home, in both of our cars, etc. Gone. Then, today, I pulled...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    Sorry, it wasn't a question. I'd just skimmed the thread and seen this posted 2 weeks and 6 days ago:     Since then, nearly three weeks ago, I haven't seen you post here. I guess I was worried that even iBasso had sort of abandoned the thread. Evidently not. Sorry for the confusion.

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    No impressions yet re: the new firmware? No Paul?   I'm confused. Tell me the DX90 thread isn't dying out just because the 80 has launched. They're both incredible DAPs.

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    Oh my.   So after my first pair of FLC8S blew a gasket (literally) I decided on a whim to jump on the QT5 hype train, which derailed brutally, wounding nearly everyone aboard. Immense buyer's remorse set in immediately, and was exacerbated by $80 I lost on shipping & handling charges—money I...

    EDIT:  OOPS! I had accidentally posted something intended for the FLC8S thread here. I apologize if it seemed like I was trolling; I was not.
