    USB-C to 3.5mm adapters (DAC) - Let's find the best

    Brain burn-in maybe. Its considered to be close to Zen Air, so possibly its the warmer smoothening/analogue of the treble and vocals that irks you. if i recalled it right, Nympho have similar impression and consider the more colder, sharper and detailed Tempotec to be better.
