    Audeze SINE Series

    So I've just picked up a pair and I love them. I find the size a bit awkward with my ears but so far find them comfortable as long as I have them back a bit otherwise the pressure on the side of my head gets to me a bit. I've never heard a planar before and the detail and separation is...

    LG G5, Possible DAC or Camera modules. Audiophiles enjoy ?

    A lot of people use PowerAmp, but I used a trial of it and found it didn't sound really bad.  Switched to VLC and everything sounded much better.  I've just downloaded Foobar2000, which is my standard on the PC and they've now released an Android app. So I expect that to be my standard from now on.

    LG G5, Possible DAC or Camera modules. Audiophiles enjoy ?

    Thanks for confirming that the 3 pole should work fine.  I'm waiting for a response back from LG this week about the module and will most likely end up getting it replaced.  I got a 6.35mm to 3.5mm adapter so I could try another set of headphones that I know work perfectly (Denon D7000) with the...

    LG G5, Possible DAC or Camera modules. Audiophiles enjoy ?

    I think Ok.  So I have a ridiculous amount of different cables and adapters, but the one thing I don't have here right now are the Ultrasones.   It looks like one of the cables, going to a pair of earphones, is just busted.  No matter what is driving those I don't get sound out of one ear...

    LG G5, Possible DAC or Camera modules. Audiophiles enjoy ?

    Hi,   Hoping you guys can help me. I've been working on the assumption that someone made a 'poor design decision' with the B&O HiFi module, but thinking now that I may have a faulty one.   I have the H850 standard UK version of the phone on EE and bought the HiFi module as soon as I could...

    UK 2015 Head-Fi Meet (Cambridge - Saturday 25th April)

    Re wifi, if we have good phone reception we have other options as well.  I have a good 4G data plan so if the reception is good some of us at least can use that as a wifi hotspot.  If not we will still have BT but hopefully the phone signal there is good and we can save some money.

    UK 2015 Head-Fi Meet (Cambridge - Saturday 25th April)

    Excellent to see this!  Andy kindly PM'd me to let me know this is happening.  I missed the London one and have been waiting for people to organise another.   I'm definitely in for this.  I'll be bringing along the Icon Audio HP8 MKII valve amp and an assortment of valves, a Musical Fidelity...

    Reply to review by 'fragmentedgod' on item 'Icon Audio HP8 MKII'

     Great review!  Really easy read and really informative.  I have the amp and I love it but I have issues with it being too bright, which is something that people say just isn't so about the headphones I'm using (Denon AH-D7000).  And on the back of this review I'm now looking for some Full Music...

    [LIST][OPINION] Amp recommendations for Fostex/Denon Headphones.

    Given that your amp is three times the price of mine, and that I know mine is not the best match, I am not surprised that you aren't hearing the same things!  It's good to know that there is definitely room for improvement with the 'phones.  I simply don't have the funds to get that amp so for...

    [LIST][OPINION] Amp recommendations for Fostex/Denon Headphones.

    Hi,   Thanks so much for this thread!  Really useful and definitely helping me make my next choice.   I bought an Icon Audio HP8 MKII ( http://www.iconaudio.com/portfolio-item/icon-audio-hp8-mkii/ )a year ago, intending to pick up a pair of HifiMan HE-500s.  I ended up deciding not to go...

    UK 2012 Head-Fi Meet - September 15th Cambridgeshire.

    That's amazing.  I am definitely happy to do this, and can then compare it to my (much cheaper heh) valve amp as well.  I think, given your comparison between this and the BHSE, it would be worthwhile giving people the ability to audition this against the BHSE and perhaps the Stax (if that's all...

    UK 2012 Head-Fi Meet - September 15th Cambridgeshire.

    Definitely excited to hear the Stax. I have a strong feeling after the meet I'll be picking up some Hifiman headphones :).  Saving the pennies to have enough around to get something after cause I know I'll be itching!!   Well, here's 999 for the people out there waiting.  I'm fine not...

    Quote:   I'm also really curious about how to manage the hygiene aspect.  I expect most of the time I will have my main cans with me testing out different amps/sources, but I want to be able to offer people the chance to listen to them as well.  Wipes isn't exactly what I had in mind. ...

    UK 2012 Head-Fi Meet - September 15th Cambridgeshire.

    This is starting to get close now so I'm thinking I need to actually make bookings etc.  I remember talk about making group bookings that might give us some discounts.  Is this still on the cards, or was the last word just to make our own bookings?   Also, has anyone made any plans yet to...

    UK 2012 Head-Fi Meet - September 15th Cambridgeshire.

    Quote: I had no idea that it had gone up in price that much!  It's a really good amp but I don't have anything to compare it to (aside form portable amps that can't drive the bigger headphones as well and headphone outs on stereo amps).  It will be there so you're very welcome to have a...
