    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

    ^^ Wait for used Clears to start selling, you'll be glad you did. I saw one set for $800 "Like New" earlier this week.

    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

    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...

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    Are balanced amps better? Short answer: Just being balanced doesn't automatically make an amp better. Long answer: Within the low-mid tiers, where a lot of enthusiasts shop for desktop amps, balanced amps are generally better built. Also they offer more voltage at lower gain, and provide more...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Obviously, that's why I'm moving on (and I referenced the AEONs in my replies, even). Did you? ------------------ Anyhow, I'm moving on to test the AEONs with portable gear, and not too surprisingly, they sound pretty thin directly out of my DP-X1a, even balanced, so I had to EQ in a little...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    What? 9/10ths of the time people don't look at a graph before buying. *I* don't even always look at graphs before buying. (You realize only a few review sites even show graphs, right?) Most buy because they think a headphone will sound good, not because it's going to be the pinnacle of accuracy...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    These blanket statements are getting ridiculous, and I'm starting to suspect you're unfamiliar with what "objectivity" means. No, that's not even the PRIMARY reason people buy headphones, which is: because they like how they sound (or at least suspect they will due to other people's impressions...
