    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    Hey what a coincidence, a year ago to the day! I can still safely stand by the 64 Audio Professional Cable. It's what I've been using with my MD+ almost daily for (apparently!) over a year. I'd tried a few others before 64 Audio's and honestly nothing comes close to the look, feel and sound. I'd...

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    Since the X5iii has an output impedance of <1Ω you should not noticed much background hiss, if any. It seems like that's the sweet spot for these IEMs, although it's hard to say for sure since I've used them with a source with an output impedance of <1.1Ω (FiiO E17K) and noticed a very faint but...

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    I also found the included foam tips rather large. Usually I'm medium all the way in foam tips but I used the smalls out of the set that were included. I had some spares of these laying around and the mediums were perfect for me, so I'm sure the smalls would work for you. EDIT: For what it's...

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    That sounds promising... I'm sure the <0.4Ω output impedance rating keeps the blacks pitch black? No doubt that it would but figured I'd ask since you have been enjoying the combo firsthand, getting rid of that ever-so-faint hissing is my priority #1 :) I also opted for the Null Audio Brevity...

    Comment by 'mwillis' in item 'Shanling M0'

    Are there any other DAPs you would recommend over this for under ~$200 USD? This thing checks all my boxes but I just want to make sure I'm getting the biggest bang for my buck. It will be driving primarily Massdrop+ UIEMs, so output impedance <1 ohm is absolutely the biggest requirement. I'm...

    Best sub-$150 portable DAC/amp for sensitive IEMs

    I actually am close to pulling the trigger on a Topping NX4 DSD, I could get one for $126 brand new through eBay with the 15% off deal they have going today. It has an output impedance of ~0.5 ohms, which would be perfect for my MD+ IEMs. EDIT: Well I just spent $200... got both the NX4 DSD and...
