    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I'm extremely impressed by how VC sound from monitor outputs on the Prism Lyra. They need a bit less gain than LCD-2s, which surprised me. However, being dynamic coil headphones, they'll vary in frequency response between different amps more than planars. So the quest for a perfect amp should be...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Having installed the upgrade yesterday, I'm impressed so far. It seems to achieve every claim advertised. The new tuning pad options are excellent. The black foam really dials in my system. For $30, it's a no brainer. If Mr. Speakers wants to improve brand loyalty, this is a superb way. I first...

    Android phones and USB DACs

    Too bad. It seems Google changed up the way USB audio works for Nougat. This may drive me to a custom rom down the road. I take back what I said about the headphone output being bad for streaming. It's just Soundcloud.   In the mean time, it would be nice to have a quality but small DAC/Amp...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    I signed up for the upgrade the first day Dan added it to his site. I never got the follow up email he sent out to all those who added themselves to the list. Should I assume I never got added then?

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Agreed. I quite like the Ether Cs for the office. They isolate better than any closed headphones I've had before. They're obviously much less isolating than custom IEMs. I'm glad Vlad is getting into high end headphones. While he doesn't yet know what he's talking about, I trust he will eventually.

    +30 points for talking up the Miraculous Mandarin. Glad the C Flows depict it well. I hope to get the C upgrade sometime soon to hear for myself.

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    I've had the Ether Cs, version 1.1, for just over a week now. I'm extremely impressed. These are the full sized closed back unicorns I've been waiting for. The only compromise I hear from the closed back is a smaller soundstage. That's the best thing to compromise, as it's not sacrificing any...

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    Thanks for mentioning stuff on bandcamp guys. It's the best site, from the perspective of both a consumer and an artist. I'll offer this musical example, which I look forward to hearing on the Ether Cs I just ordered:   https://bleepsequence.bandcamp.com/album/blpsq049-sodag   And what the...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      Clarification: I'm not using Roxannes and HD800s at the same time.  What I'm saying is that by giving the Mojo amp enough power and gain to get the HD800s listenable, it becomes too noisy for IEM use.  This is especially annoying for me, as a portable amp can take high end CIEMs to the top...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Likewise, I'm sure there's a pickup truck that could exceed its listed tow limit by many times and actually pull an oversize load. I'm sure one could tweak the pickup's engine to improve performance more yet. But in the end, it'll still be dramatically inferior at the task compared to an 18...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    You've got my hopes up now x RELIC x.  I'll head back to the hifi store tomorrow and compare mine to the demo unit.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      I won't contest that claim.  No doubt, there's quite a range in sensitivity between CIEMs.  Likewise, there's a big range in sensitivity between listeners.  Unfortunately, using JHA Roxannes, the noise floor is clearly audible to me.  Be glad if it's not in your set up, because the Mojo puts...

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    The frequency response looks quite good, apart from the dip at nine kHz and peak at 10.5. A little parametric EQ should fix both. The white pad seems to take it a little closer to the Harmon target response. I can't wait to hear them for myself Dan. I'm hoping these really are the unicorn closed...

    Android phones and USB DACs

    Wow, I hadn't noticed those. That should cover it. Thanks NZTF. Now you need to give us a detailed review of the Ether C.

    Android phones and USB DACs

    Has anyone yet seen anything about USB C audio adapter cables?  I assume it's just a matter of time, and I hope the new format allows a bit more built in flexibility with signals travelling both ways.
