    There's no "may" about it, it's a real 256GB card. While it is slower it's still very high quality with excellent reviews.

    Those are really nice, BTW (if your player supports them), just as fast as internal storage. Edit: I noticed they're sold out, but you can still get this Silicon Power 256GB for $90. Yes, it's a real 256GB card, not a hacked fake, I have one of these in my camera and it works like a champ...

    These are on Tyll's Wall of Fame, and I bought a pair. They're quite good, one of the better wireless, BT headphones out there, for only $129: JBL Everest Elite 700 https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B079DD918L/ref=s9_acsd_bw_wf_a_dlpf8f60_mdl?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    It was on Amazon, but the guy had about 150 sales under his belt and a 95% rating, so I figured it was probably real.

    Pound for pound, probably the best value in IEMs, period. They sound as good as, if not better than, competitors costing >5x more. KZ ZS6 Custom-built Hybrid HiFi In-ear Earphones - $31 https://www.gearbest.com/earbud-headphones/pp_770863.html

    They do use MMCX and do respond well to balanced cable upgrades. IMO, these do require a lot of EQ to get a neutral sound out of them, they're very, very dark without it, but fortunately they do EQ well and have beautiful, if slightly forward (+2dB), mids. From that perspective they've caught on...

    USB cable supposedly improving DAC sound quality? How can I take other posts seriously after that?

    The placebo effect is very powerful. Having been involved with a DBT involving USB cables; $3 (Monoprice) > $1000 (Audioquest Diamond), all 1m, there was no audible difference. and yes, my friend finally noticed that someone swapped his cables, but only because he needed to move his gear...

    How many DACs?

    Today I was counting DACs & DAC/Amp combos I've accumulated and was surprised to find out I have 22, with 9 of them attached to my computer at the same time (and a few I'd forgotten about). :rolling_eyes: Time to clean up after the holidays, I guess (I don't want to even talk about how many sets...

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=26-380-027 Beyerdynamic MMX41 iEs for $17. They're merely okay but can take workout abuse, so there's that.

    Today I was informed that the Black Friday iSine 10 deal (not sure about the other models) directly from Audeze could take weeks to fill, so I hope no one ordered these as Christmas gifts, and if you did you may want to organize a backup gift. :neutral_face:
