    do you use stock cable or any upgrade one? if latter, can you please compare your impressions vs. the stock ?

    To me, M9 provides perfect tonality and silky-smooth upper mid/treble section, which is absolutely fatigue-free and comfortable for long listening experience. I wonder if EXT produces the same or deviates to, as example, a brighter side.

    Odin vs VE EXT- which is more musical (warmer) and less analytical? and which is brighter and higher-mid/lower treble focused?

    Much obliged for detailed answer. Have you tried cable rolling? Probably, a solid copper cable could have reduced the mids and tame the highs, with emphasis on the low-end though.

    As we speak about the sensitivity to specific mid and/or treble region, I would address the question regarding EXT/Odin compared to Fir M5 and Sony M9. I look for smooth and comfort sound, as example, couldn’t live with Anole VX, because they were hot somewhere in upper mid/lower treble. On the...

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Agree and disagree (or just ad my 5cc) - as example, I can feel the difference on my ier m9 between spiral dot and type-e, but I wouldn't use epithets like "dramatic", "night and day" etc. As to the graph - as reference point only. On your graph - V14 has deeper bass impact, but at the same...

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Actually, am worried about the treble performance of V14. Some say it is harsh and peak; the other find the treble smooth compared to VX. Also would be great to have the treble part of V14 and Odin compared. As to VX , I couldn't stand the heat in the upper section. Would be great to set the...

    Very great and detailed comparison indeed. Cab you please through a couple more words in regard of treble V14 vs Odin? quantity and quality - wise. Which one is more comfortable for longer listening?

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    @jwbrent V14 graph looks very very similar to VE8 - taking aside the sub-bass area, the treble peaks in 6-8 kHz are practically the copies of each other. Therefore, would be great to have a short (or profound :) ) comparison of both IEMs. Also my personal concernment would be covering the...

    Great summary, which gives even more value by comparing with other units. Have you happened to lay hands on Sony M9 by chance? What would be their position compared to 8SL, VX and U12T?

    I used to have VX paired with sp1000m. Couldn't stand that combo because of harsh treble - had ringing in my ears after half an hour of intensive listening Sp1000m is not considered to be on brighter side, if I got the right impression. Had an idea to buy 8sl, as advised by a headfi-er, it is...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    I do not use Tidal, cannot comment on that. My choice is uapp, because its UI appeals to me - very intuitive and lightweight in positive sense. Both Cayin and Hiby look clumsier (a.e., сannot display the covers and scroll the folder tittle in the "folder" section). For the reason of UI I...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    It is solely the issue of uapp , cayin does not have anything to do with that. A time ago I got in touch with the uapp dev and here is the comments from first hand: ".. We use the direct mode but we haven't found anyone who could deliver adb logs such that we know how to play native DSD...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Which version do you use? Problem eliminated as I installed the previous trial versions of UAPP (5.7.3; 5.7.5). As soon as I upgrade to actual full version from Google Play (5.8.1) the problem reappears. Obviously, there is a bug in current version. Still waiting for feedback/solution from...

    That is clear, thanks for noticing. Problem with noise during skipping tracks remains.
