    OTL: Darkvoice 336SE or Bottlehead Crack

    I've had the Darkvoice and 6xx for about 2 years. It's a great combo. I strongly recommend it. That said, I have been looking to pick up a crack. Not because i'm disappointed int he Darkvoice, but because I'm interested in constructing the amp.

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    I wasn’t sure about investing in the balanced cable to use the Meze 99 with my ES100, but I’m glad I did. At first I didn’t notice much of a difference, but after listening with balanced cables for a few weeks and then switching back to SE the difference was noticeable to me. Not the the SE...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    I was asking you if compared to a smartphone, the es 100 audio quality improves a lot The Meze 99s sound good directly from my iPhone with the Apple dongle. They sound good directly from the headphone jack of my iPad. You don’t need an amp for the 99s to perform.

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    IMO, the ES100 is the best money I’ve spent on audio in the last couple of years. It really changed my opinion of Bluetooth. Is it better than USB from you phone to a DAC? That depends on the DAC and your desire for HiRes audio. For me, the ES100 is an awesome portable solution. Drives most of...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    I have the Noir and the mids and treble are more forward with the smaller pads. The bass tightens up but is still present but not dominant. That said, I prefer the larger pads from a comfort perspective. Also, after listening to them for 30+ hours either my ears have learned to block out the...

    Hifiman DEVA - Official Thread

    I checked out the Hart site. I like the modular cable setup. If I ever decide to update my cables or better yet buy more headphones I might get the Y piece for all my headphones and leave longer cables with each of my amps. But I probably won’t be doing that anytime soon. I already have 1/4” and...

    Good to know about the balanced set up. I thought there were a single ended headphone due to the single cable out.

    Hifiman DEVA - Official Thread

    I checked out the Pandas as well. The appeal of the Deva for me is that the BT stuff is not in the headphone. IMO, that gives the headset more longevity.

    Hifiman DEVA - Official Thread

    I just got blasted in another forum for stating that my Meze 99 sounded significantly different after about 30-40 hours of break in. "My brain adjusted, the headphones didn't." IDK, I listen to many sets of headphone and am pretty aware of hwo they sound different so when I introduce a new set...

    Hifiman DEVA - Official Thread

    You like the T60RP? I'm thinking of picking up a set of those. Of late I have an interest in hard to drive SE headphones. I'm making up a reason to pick up an Asgard 3. I currently have the 4xx and like them a lot. I have also peaked at the Deva, but want to try a Fostex headphone before getting...

    I just got that headband for my 4xx. It didn't come with screws. I was able to use the original screws.
