    New amp sounds like trash...?

    FWIW I had the same experience with a Schiit Hel. It sounded so bad on first listen I was making steps to return it. I moved though, recently plugged it back in and something must have changed because it sounded perfect. Definitely go with the wiring advice from the posts above.

    This sounds promising, thanks tons for the post! I'm glad you were able to get rid of the hiss but personally I'd rather not deal with an adapter. Hoping the repair is a success but will keep this in my back pocket just in case 👍 Edit- here's the adapter Resolve is talking about at Garage...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    My review is up. Compared to the Arya & HD800S, and tried EQ'ing them as well. There seems to be some staunch supporters of this headphone but I'm ready for the flames 👨‍🚒 Link here.

    Cayin HA-6A Tube Headphone Amplifier (KT88 and EL34) with XLR4 and 4.4mm Impedanced Matched Output (US$2,399)

    I was getting hiss and the repair guy is checking it out. It may involve a simple resistor change but not sure exactly.

    Cayin HA-6A Tube Headphone Amplifier (KT88 and EL34) with XLR4 and 4.4mm Impedanced Matched Output (US$2,399)

    I mailed the HA-6A to a repair center in Arizona on Cayin's dime, on May 29. It's been almost a month but AFAIK it's still at the repair shop. I luckily have the WA22 to keep me company but that's about all the news I have.

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    I don't know guys I'm testing all of these and for the money the O2 is top notch. For the naysayers what other amps at this price point where you thinking?

    SONY WH1000XM3 - better than QC35 in noise cancelling?

    I ran an ANC test on the XM3 with other popular headphones here (at 25:19): XM3's came out on top, followed by the Bose NC 700's. The slightly higher clamping force helps.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    Will probably be a high level "What are the major differences & sound signatures between all these different types of DACs?" review (r2r, multibit, chip, fpga). Would love to compare to a BF2 but I can't seem to find one

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    Initial impression is it's super smooth, I can see why it's so popular. Still trying to decide if what I'm hearing is actually more "natural" or not like R2R fans tout.
