    Sony Walkman OS custom firmware (non-Android)

    Personally I found the stock WM1A and WM1Z underwhelming for their asking price. Sound wise I can't remember the smaller details but essentially the WM1A and WM1Z just had their warm and neural ports swapped. The WM1A had a warm SE output and a neutral BAL output while the WM1Z had a neutral SE...

    Haven't Campfire Audio's recent iems all been terrible?

    New Successor to the DX-160 & DX-220

    I was going to post a detailed comparison between my N3Pro and DX160 originally. But the DX160 was a little to a lot better in every aspect so it wasn't really fair, price aside, so i scrapped it. Wouldn't look good anyways as it would appear like I'm shilling for iBasso even though I got the...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    From my experience demoing hundreds of sets of iems, blanket statements like multi ba having better layering compared to single DD or DD iems having better bass is a case of correlation does not equal causation. There are many sets of multi ba iems I’ve demoed, quite a few of them being...

    iBasso DX160 (2020) vs Sony NW-ZX507 detailed comparison

    M11 Pro. The M11 Plus LTD is supposedly better but I haven’t heard it yet but people say it’s an upgrade over the M11 Pro And there’s no need to get used cables, there are plenty of high quality cables on aliexpress under 50 dollars. Check out this thread and maybe get a recommendation from...

    iBasso DX160 (2020) vs Sony NW-ZX507 detailed comparison

    Glad you liked it :) That said if I already had the ZX507 I’d go for a straight upgrade (FiiO M11 Plus LTD for example) rather than a small upgrade/sidegrade.

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    You know i always wonder if the coathanger had similar enough resistances to the other cables they tested by virtue of being shorter and thicker than other cables.

    That seems to be more ideal to my ears based on the iems i like.

    No not that, I'm talking about the iem measurment setup, the one with the FR graph

    FiiO's Crown Jewel of Portable Music Player M11 Plus LTD Is Officially Released!

    I've only compared the M11 Pro to the DX160 and the M11 Pro was more holographic player in that instance. It was a small all around improvement over the DX160 so i'd expect the M11 Plus LTD to be even better. The only reason why i didn't get the M11 Pro and got the DX160 instead was because of...

    Drop + JVC HA-FDX1 Dual Carbon IEM...available in the US!

    Then I recommend the **** UPOCC cable. Feels and looks super premium too. Wait for it to drop to $40 or less. It often does.

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    With an 8 core silver cable it is MUCH improved. With the silver cable it complements the FDX1 nicely for me, i like its vocal presentation better and its comparable to the FDX1 in terms of technicalities but with a slightly warmer presentation. That said, for $1000 i woudn't consider it. I got...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    Never had the opportunity to but would love to try. I'm a believer that lower resistance gives a more unadulterated sound. That said, some people have argued with me that (particularly on higher end iems) the supplied cables were factored into the tuning of an iem and that changing to any...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    On some cables, I can immediately differentiate which is which. Those who have tried Sony's kimber cables have also immediately considered them warmer and darker than usual. On my IER-M9 the switch from its stock cable to an 8 core silver cable was really substantial, changing its warmer tone...
