    The Qudelix-5K thread

    You can’t listen to a graph. Qudelix were reluctant to share FR, with good reason. The QX-Over sound excellent without EQ, the bass is big but the treble isn’t boosted and the mids are extremely present, so not a V shape.

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Ha! That wasn’t me guv, I swear! Truthfully I couldn’t justify the expense of the latest round’s big boys so shortly after the Semper, which haven’t even had what I’d call proper ear time yet. I know they’re amazing but, as the consensus seems to form, they’re side-grades rather than wholesale...

    Dynamic drivers need more burn-in generally. IMR ship iems with 15mm drivers that shed 2 whole mm after 200 hours, that’s as measurable as it gets! Mine will be with me tomorrow, I like the idea of mid-centric iems but not a mids soup… EQ doesn’t really help I imagine?

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Damn it the Knights are freshly sold out… with the R1 on that BT cable, the R2 in my wife’s ears, and the Semper very much for home listening due to the fiddly fit, I am all out of IMR for a bunch of use cases. GOTTA BUY SOMETHING

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    IMR’s special bass ingredient for me is its rhythm. There are many iems out there that have that “toe-tapping” factor. So people who wear them tap their toes. You can see them on the subway. They tap their toes, gently. Sometimes they even have that look on their face, like they’re, you know...

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    Yes; it was so too when they launched the 5K. It gets anywhere within three to four days and tracking is super accurate.

    Thanks for those impressions. Can’t say it has me very excited about this unit, as I’m more into colored signatures. But your wording conveys the DAP’s character very well and that’s rare and precious!

    Ordered the QX-over too. I don’t even use either EQ or Crossover on my 5K :thinking: I just believe in the power of Qudelix:v:

    Shanling M3X Portable Player - Our smallest Android Player

    I don’t know, I don’t have it :tired_face: Bass is said to be linear and not over-the-top, so it may either betray the inherent bassiness of hip-hop or keep it from going overboard when the mix is already exaggerated in the lows.

    Shanling M3X Portable Player - Our smallest Android Player

    It’s also on Hifigo (who take care of shipping and VAT fees). As you say it’s more expensive than the regular version, but comes with a leather case in the box as well as a 128Gb card, stands, collectible art, the works. Is it normal that I find it irresistible even though I’d be feeding it...

    The TWS + Neckband + BT Cable Adapter Thread

    Or aptX Adaptive! I know not that many sources support it but it’s the quickest and best optimized high-quality codec, with no latency.
