    Desktop Amp for DT880 600Ohm

    I've been using my iBasso DX50 to run my DT880s and I love the sound I'm getting, but clearly they could use an amp with a little more oomph. I plan on using the DX50 as my source, or in DAC mode to play audio from my computer. I don't have a budget specifically in mind but as many of the cheap...

    Hisound BA100 IEM Appreciation Thread.

    In case anyone is wondering, there are two different revisions of BA100. The new version has two places for the tip to sit, and brass inside the tip. It also has only one vent hole per ear. The older version, which you might find if you buy off Ebay, has a shorter tip with only one slot, and...

    Hisound BA100 IEM Appreciation Thread.

    Not to mention the elephant in the room - placebo. I'm sure I would have had very different first impressions if I had read Keanix' thoughts before listening; that's just natural. For that reason and every reason brooko mentioned, it's important to get well adjusted before making judgement calls.

    Hisound BA100 IEM Appreciation Thread.

    Mine just came in. Listening to them as we speak, but I haven't had enough time with them to comment on how they sound. They are incredibly light and comfortable, though, much better than the IEMs I've had in the past.   Oh, didn't someone mention that theirs had a single port on each side...

    It looks like that site (noisymotel) only ships to Australia and New Zealand. Do you know of any other places to purchase from, or can you point me to 'Jack' so I can see about purchasing directly from him?

    Another good recommendation! How do you think the BA100, HA-FXT90, and EPH-100SL compare in terms of clarity/detail, mids, and lows?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I like the mild v-shape of the HA-FXT90, do any of you have experience with that model? Bass is fairly important to me but of course detail reigns supreme.   As for the rock-its, I gather they sound great but iffy build quality, poor stock tips and over-ear...

    JVC HA-FXT90 Thread

    Alright, I have looked through those as well as theheadphonelist.com's reviews, and both were very helpful. However as an audio newb I'm still not sure whether I would prefer something balanced or stronger in the mids or v-shaped.  Based on the music genres I listed, what do you think would be...

    $100 IEMs for everything

    Hi fellas, I recently lost my pair of Bose IE2s, and am looking to get something to replace them and hopefully outperform them. I listen to a pretty wide range of music including classic and contemporary rock, electronic, and alternative. I'm hoping to find something comfy, balanced, and fun for...

    JVC HA-FXT90 Thread

    How do these compare with other IEMs in the ~$100 range? I listen to a wide range of music including rock, electronic, and alternative.  E.g. Yamaha EPH-100SL, Rock It R-50, Shure SE215, and others?
