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

    Meze has a single ended cable but it's 3.5mm. I don't think they have a 6.3mm. Other than that, there is GUCraftsman which sells cables on Amazon. But they are over $100. As far as Aliexpress ... you should be able to find plenty of affordable, decent-good cables of that type either...

    Yes, except for Amp9. Much to the dissapointment of quite a few DX220 owners who moved or wanted to move to the 240. I think the issue is that the nutube and it's mount is a little too tall/thick to fit in the thinner 240.

    Yes, Beyer DT880 and DT990. Bigger fan of the 990 but like the 880 too. Had them for a long time. I use them off of an OTL tube amp. The highs don't bother me at all. Nothing about the treble bothers me. I could be wrong but I think it's the higher treble that gets most people that are...

    Bggar just reviewed the Shuoer S12. He likes them a little better than Timeless. However, they appear to have several db more energy through much of the treble. I don’t think thats going to fit the tastes of those who find Timeless already bright. Bggar claims its not am issue for whatever...

    I think Timeless may be the only iem with which I was able to get a decent seal with the Symbios. But they are so uncomfortable for me that I can't tolerate them. No matter because, sonically, there are other tips that I prefer.

    Interestingly enough ... if you compare graphs, Zen, Zen Pro and Timeless aren't radically different in terms of FR plots (especially Zen Pro and Timeless) aside from the Timeless extended treble and a bit more bottom end. Regardless, they are very different "flavors".

    I'd have to give that some thought. Probably have to do some critical listening between the 2. Off the top of my head, Zen is really pretty good in the mids but treble rolls off early. Definitely have to give it to Timeless up top but maybe Zen through the mids. Zens magic is in it's...

    Astell&Kern Launches KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player

    Just to keep the adapters plugged in? I would think that would be safe. Using at the same time, I don't know. But, for example, the 3.5 adapter only allows you to use 4.4 or 2.5 in the 3.5 single ended jack. You'd still have to remove the adapter to use a 3.5 plug in the 3.5 jack. They'd...

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

    That's the cable that's braided before splitter and twisted after splitter, right? I've seen that cable before, and thought it was a nice looking cable with that twist after the split. It's single crystal copper if I remember right. But always thought it would be heavy. Looked for it on...

    Astell&Kern Launches KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player

    Of course it is possible to simultaneously plug into both jacks at the same time ... but that doesn't mean it will work. :D Seriously though, not sure what you mean. You mean so 2 people can listen at the same time, one balanced and one single ended?

    Astell&Kern Launches KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player

    That was the intention, to use with IEM's and full size phones but I never really ended up using it much with my full size phones. Not yet anyway. I tried it with Meze 99's just for fun and it easily drives those but that's not saying much. Seemed like it would do ok with Hifiman Drop HE4XX...

    Interesting. I have an MMCX assist tool (I've never used nor needed to use it) but my Timeless didn't come with one.

    Astell&Kern Launches KANN ALPHA Digital Audio Player

    DX300 is out of production from what I understand. I think it's because of lack of availability of the Cirrus Logic Dac chips. Not sure if it's on pause or completely discontinued. If you find one, try to audition it first. I have an Ibasso DX220 as well as the Alpha and I didn't really like...

    Did that MMCX assist tool come with your Timeless? Either way, I don't think it will work because of the infamous Timeless disc.
