  • About

    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    .
    Interests:
    Producing headphone wood cups/leather accessories in my spare time.

    You can contact me at - lohb777@gmail.com
    Headphone Inventory:
    Love to find underdog audio equipment good for electronic music that punches above its weight/price class.

    Signature I'm seeking -

    solid slice of micro-detail
    rich/slightly darker tonality
    controlled textured bottomless full & tight low-end
    lush/liquid balanced mids
    smooth marathon listening session non-fatiguing treble.

    A balance of musicality and technicalities basically.....




    WTB 2018

    1) Elemental Watson Class-A V2 Valve/Mosfet Hybrid Headphone Amplifier



    OWN

    (CANS)

    ****AUDEZE LCD 2.1 - The deepest darkest chocolate with a dash of coffee & cream. Simply the best (for me).

    ****FOSTEX Tx0-RP Mk3 - Exotic wood DIY custom modification.
    Tuning style - bass enhanced from stock tuning, mids neither forward or back with HM5 pads, treble spike (10-11Khz or so) tamed a bit

    ****DENON D2k - torn down/disassembled.



    OWNED

    ****SOLD*** MODIFIED HiFiMAN HE-400

    ****SOLD*** MODIFIED NAD VISO HP-50
    Headphone Amp Inventory:
    ***SOLD*** iBasso PB2.
    Transportable, but 5 watts desktop class amp.
    PLUS LPS 16 volt battery-powered clean linear discharge power solution.

    ***SOLD*** CAYIN C5 - excellent budget level portable amp.
    Organic, wide 3D presentation, paired excellently with my modded T20RP's.

    ***SOLD*** LIGHT HARMONIC GO1000 - transparent and dynamic, but lacking soul.Too cold and analytic.
    Source Inventory:
    OWN

    1) ASUS ZENFONE 2 Laser 6" + UAPP

    2) MACBOOK AIR (Internal Cirrus Logic 4208-CRZ DAC/amp)
    with
    Audirvana Plus 2.x.x


    3) HRT microStreamer (segmented current source TI PCM 1793 chip).

    4) iFi iPurifier 2 - like what is doing.
    Blacker background/tighter timing/better imaging/resolution and 3D layering.

    OWNED

    6) CHORD MOJO - nice to try while I owned it. HRT microStreamer comes pretty close in SQ, like 95% close (last 5% is resolution/3D placement. Internal peak power I view separately from the DAC itself). Battery life short for the MOJO price....= power management inefficient code.

    7) ***TRADED*** BERESFORD BUSHMASTER MKII DAC/AMP - amazing little DAC/amp.Treble slightly ragged with some mastering.

    8) AQ Jitterbug - did not work well with my audio chain ultimately. Bright/brittle metallic edginess was added to upper end.
    Cable Inventory:
    "Cable cautious" rather than "all out cable improvements believer".
    I buy high quality DIY parts built for close to standard cable prices.


    ANTI-CABLES 0.2M RCA-RCA
    DIY 3-line 24AWG UP-OCC USB Cable (Data LINE-Only Modification)
    +
    TERADAK USB Data+Power Y-Merger Cable

    PSA TYPE 6 LITZ INTERCONNECT with CRYO'd 3.5's
    8-line balanced Sterling Silver IEM cable
    Power-Related Components:
    1) Power strip with built-in noise suppression.

    2) Ferrite clip-on barrels here-and-there
    Gear-Fi:
    My custom front/rear suspension mountain bike converted for single-speed city road thrashing madness.
