    Review by 'MrJoshua' on item 'FiiO FH3'

    I purchased these wonderful IEMs from Fiio’s official store on AliExpress and they were shipped really quickly via DHL, with an import duty of £16 paid online before they arrived. I’m really impressed with the packaging and supplied accessories; loads of different tips to try, a sturdy hard...

    Topping NX2 Portable DAC/Amp Impressions Thread

    OK, I'm currently in the office where I have 4G connectivity and I get a lot of interference :( If I turn 4G off, the interference disappears completely.

    Topping NX2 Portable DAC/Amp Impressions Thread

    Hi Jerry I've had my iPhone 6+ sat on top of the amp and haven't heard any noise so far, which is positive compared to the complaints I saw about the NX1. I'm currently using a micro USB to USB OTG adapter and the supplied USB to Mini USB cable with my Android tablet, but have also ordered a...

    Topping NX2 Portable DAC/Amp Impressions Thread

    Hi   I've only had this new DAC/Amp for a day, but I felt compelled to write an initial review of it as I'm astounded by the sound coming out of this tiny thing! I currently have it connected to my iPhone 6+ using the Apple Lightning to USB camera connection kit and the supplied short USB...

    HiSoundAudio HSA-BA100 **BLACK** !

    I'm assuming they're available now by request, direct from HSA.   I paid for expedited delivery...  They shipped on Saturday the 14th from China and arrived with me in the UK today (Tuesday 17th)!  Impressive stuff from TNT couriers.

    HiSoundAudio HSA-BA100 **BLACK** !

    LOL I don't think the colour has anything to do with the sound... I think they took the opportunity to improve some aspect of the sound while releasing it in a new colour.   Driving them with my Fiio E12 at the moment and they sound a lot more punchy.

    HiSoundAudio HSA-BA100 **BLACK** !

    I just received my new Black HSA-BA100 IEMs direct from HiSoundAudio!   I contacted Jack at HSA to ask a few questions about the standard BA100 earphones and he mentioned that he was releasing a new version which was black and had "15% better sound", which apparently means that they are more...

    FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed!

    This is interesting... I found the E12 added more sparkle to my HD650 than my Voyager... Certainly not more veiled.

    FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed!

    Quote:   I have a production version, but sadly no pre-production version to compare the bass boost to.   I find I selectively use the bass boost function depending on which cans and music I'm listening to.  Sometimes it sounds great, other times it's really not required.   It...

    FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed!

    Pretty sure if you buy new now, you'll get the V2. No idea about a V3... The V2 was only launched last week! And in any case, I think it's more like Beta/Pre-Production vs Production, rather than V1/V2.

    FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed!

    Mine is on its way to me and should be here tomorrow!   I'm excited to see it "in the metal" - I just hope it sounds good with my HD25s as that's what it'll mostly be used with while travelling.

    HD-650 burn-in?

    I really do believe the HD-650 is very picky about which amplifier is driving it.   I am more than happy with the combination of 650 and Graham Slee Solo that I've been running for the past few years.   The 650's also continue to improve - I do wonder whether some of this might be down...

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Thanks all!   I've just ordered a pair...  Hopefully they'll arrive tomorrow.   I'm now re-aquainting myself with my 5's so I can compare them to the 10's :) :)

    Ear Hygiene (please post helpful tips)

    I use some fizzy saline spray from the pharmacist.   http://www.audiclean.co.uk/   Seems to work well, but makes me dizzy for a minute after using it.

    Why is the HD650 'boring'?

    Paired with the "right" amplifier, the HD-650 is everything BUT boring!   They are smooth and I can listen to them for hours and hours without tiring, but the music still feels alive.  There's enough sparkle to the highs for me to engage with the music, but not too much that it gets...

    I can't believe I chose today to come back from my Head-Fi hiatus!   I'd have been down to this in a shot if I'd have known about it!  Looks like you had a great time :)

    REVIEW: Meier Audio Concerto headphone amp

    I've not read all of the comments on this thread, but I thought I'd just chip in to say I like that this looks like Jan's older amps (like a big version of the HA-1 MKII that I've got).

    SR325i vs HD650

    I liked the 325i when I first got them, they were quite detailed and somewhat exciting. However, it didn't take long for me to tire of them - they were hard work to listen to for extended periods... For me it was a mix of them being rather shrill at times, the ear pads were a bit...
