    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    Just bend the leads to the tube gently so that it's perpendicular to the board and then push them down again

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    Gently bend the leads so that you relieve the tension, and then reattach the tubes. I got random ringing (very loud) when they were both unattached. the right one still rings if i clap my hand or cough close to the amp.   i can only hear that when using headphones that show the noise floor...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Now you're comparing open headphones to iems. A hd600 and an ie80 have a similar stage size to me. They both suck at isolation. A closed headphone with good isolation stages similar to my best closed iems. Bass impact aside - it's important to compare similar usage capability as well as...

    Comparisons: 36 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around

    Just recently ordered the focal classics, then the Pro was on stock for 220 USD, so I went for it instead. Good sound, but slightly bright. Soundstaging isn't that great but i'm comparing to HD650... Great clarity but they sound a bit like Ety's - flat and wide...   I do find that I put them...

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    If the ultrasone is similar in sensitivity to the M80's my experience is that the m80 and Vali does not mingle well... The noise level is just too loud on my unit.

    For some reason it's cheap in France, Spain and Italy. For a hopping on amazon, find the sku on pricenoia.com and set a price alert for the European amazon sites. Will get you the best price regardless of which country has the deal. The stock is shared a lot of times.

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Joker eraly on useds ety er4s and HF5 as reference, and considers that bass a neutral (as to my understanding). The HF5 is one of the IEMs I have that have the least bass, so it's all about figuring out where you are on the scale compared to his references. Other reviewers are good as well, but...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    The RE-400 is a clear step up in sound, though it feels more fragile. My Re-400 for example split down the middle of the earpiece and I had to glue it together again. For isolation the Re-400 is not even close to the etys with a deep fir on tri-flanges, the difference in isolation for me is...

    FS ads sorting suggestion

    I was just thinking about this as well, I'm ok with just sorting on currency but I believe it would be better if there was a way to add region to the ad as some prefer using USD/EUR even if not in those countries.   Currently I basically scour the ads for Euro posts, as the shipping basically...

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    The hd700 is significantly more sensitive than the hd600/650. The px100 is a portable and that was doomed from the start.

    NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!!

    It's fine for me as my hd650 is insensitive enough to make the noise go below my hearing threshold. Using any other of my headphones the noise is making the amp unusable. Cranking the amp high won't help in any way with to your issue. Which headphones are you using?
