    M-Fidelity (formerly Starkey Norway) SA-43 Custom IEM Review: Expansive Space + Options

    I have the same problem. The right channel volume is lower than the left. I have sent it back to Norway and they will ship it back soon. This was after weeks of trying to get the UK division to fix the problem, but they did not succeed stating that there was no problem to begin with! They tried...

    M-Fidelity (formerly Starkey Norway) SA-43 Custom IEM Review: Expansive Space + Options

    Hi again   I have recently started to notice some distortion during some of my music listening. This usually occurs in metal music where the guitars are using heavy distortion (the good kind!), and it occurs in the higher frequencies. I seemed to have solved the problem with distortion with...

    Hi   I am looking for a pair of headphones as a backup to my custom Starkey SA-43 iems.   Of course, the sound has to be of a very high standard.    My iems are almost perfect for me except the bass does not go down to the absolute lowest registers.   I am looking for a pair of...

    Has computer/laptop DAC technology matured? Realtek vs ......

    Just wondering if computer DAC technology has matured to the point where it is pretty much equivalent to high end DACs such as wolfson etc.   I am using a Realtek ALC888s which can output 24 bit 192 kHz. I get no noise or hiss and it sounds pretty good on my Starkey SA-43 iems.   If...

    I am now wondering if an unamplified signal from a good quality dac will actually solve my problem of the bass distorting.....   What do you think?

    I would also like to know what DAC is used....

    Sorry, but I have another noob question.   How do you know that the HiFi Man DAC or the ebay dac produce an unamplified signal?   Thanks

    They sound great. I just wish that bass would go down even lower. It becomes inaudible at 20Hz.   I actually have a question that maybe you can help me out with.   I purchased a cMoyBB 2.03 amp but I am not completely satisfied.    My signal chain is this:   Laptop headphone out...

    Help finding IEMs or headphones under $800. Big soundstage, rich vocals, slightly sparkling highs

    Starkey SA-43. Enough said. Best soundstage and you can customise the sound signature with the unique two switches.   When ordered, product should arrive at doorstep within 2 weeks. That is what you call service.   Edit: Might be out of your budget though!

    Is it just me, or are the iem's larger than other customs?   They seem to stick out of my ears more than the others.....   If so, they should try and make them smaller....and make the bass go (even) deeper. Then there would be no question that this is the best iem on the market. (except...

    Hi   I have just recently received my SA-43 iem's.    What would be a good PORTABLE amp to pair it with. I head the pico slim is good, but it is too expensive for me.   Would the Fiio E17 be a good choice. Would any other Fiio's be good?   Is an amp actually needed/recommended...
