    Audeze LCD i4 TOTL In-Ear Monitor Discussion

    I agree. They are not suited for a very quiet environment where one is trying not to bother someone next to them. If the person next to you is a heavy sleeper like I am, it won't bother them. If they are a light sleeper, look elsewhere than a planar iem IMO.

    Dragonfly Black 1.5 disappointed

    Everyones ears are different. Only use what people say online as a guide not as a bible. I find it so dumb whenever I'm browsing these posts and see some people giving or receiving flack for not hearing what others do like it is some universal truth.

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    The Pioneer and Onkyo have different shape. Generally same size but one of the Pioneer corners is angled while the Onkyo is normal. Also the slide to lock switches on the side are different and in slightly different spots.

    post your grado mods....

    For mwcamp77 gimbals and rod blocks, I used 4-40x1/4 thumb screws to hold the gimbals in place. Been great so far.

    A Review of MandarinEs Foam Tips

    Just got the Symbio W tips in. While it took some effort at first, I was able to fit them on my iSINE 20. So far enjoying the small tips a lot in contrast to using the large rib tips that come with the iSINEs to get the best seal. I will have to use them for awhile before a true compare to let...

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

    The iFi micro iDSD Black Label is comparable. It's longer (roughly same length as a iPhone 7 Plus) but still portable enough IMO plus has double the battery life of a Mojo. It has a lot of useful features built in. Adorama frequently put it in sale. They just had it on sale for $380 but I think...

    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    That sucks. Message KMann or send a ticket to Audeze if you cannot swap out fast in retail.

    Tempted to return to Grado / ALESSANDRO.

    There are some many options now compared to 10 years ago for headphones that Grado does not get as much talk outside of the dedicated Grado appreciation thread.

    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    I enjoy using both the cipher and 3.5mm cables and I don't have a preference of one over the other. I still use EQ on both cables to tailor the sound to the way I want it. I rather own a great headphone that responds well to EQ to match with anything I throw at it than own a headphone that is...

    Portable DAC/AMP for iPhone 7 w Low impedance headphones

    Measurements aren't everything. Implementation of the electronics is. While the lightning to 3.5 mm adaptor is decent for IEMs and ear buds, it can't drive more demanding headphones properly. Also, for hi-res audio you need an external DAC. My Zorloo Zuperdac, DFB 1.5, and iDSD BL all beat the...

    Audeze LCD i4 TOTL In-Ear Monitor Discussion

    Assuming it's the same case as the iSINEs, you shouldn't use the included leather case without the inner insert. This it because if the accessories come off, they will fall out of the rather large open holes in the corner potentially making the iSINE/i4 unusable till you purchase the correct...
