    Cheap ebay 6120A2 amps - any experience with these?

    Quote: The fiio e9 uses opa2134 for the gain stage and tpa6120 as a buffer. This only has a tpa6120. They also used a different cheaper power supply scheme. This might be good for someone looking for something cheap to power demanding headphones.

    EarPods - Apples newest entry into IEM

    Quote:       I just did some research and apparently Apple might have dumped Foster for Foxconn for earphone, but I still think they are some type of biocellulose (as paper is bio cellulose). The Taiwan manufacture also aquired some patents from fostex.       Quote:

    I had one with black plastic and newer ones with "white" clear plastic. I believe the black plastic ones are the older revision before they switched to ccaw voice coils. They have a bit less treble and more smoother presentation(from memory(I went through the copper then the ccaw version and...

    Can I run a USB DAC on Grados without an amp?

    No, most line out have DC offset which while some headphones can with stand for short periods, will lead to the eventual destruction of your headphones. Also loading a dac output with a low impedance grado might not be a good ideal.   Also I suggest buying a amp first.

    is there a large amount of people here who hype up products quite often?

    Frankly any discussion/statement of any product contributes to increasing the popularity of a product. And then it self propagates if it become too popular

    Etymotic HF5 opinions

    If you're coming from the d2000 the sound signature would be vastly different. You'll probably first think they are too thin and lack the rich bass and mids of the d2000. If you use the hf5 exclusively for a long period It'll start to sound better after adjusting to the sound signature.

    HPA labs Cmoy from ebay...any good?

    smd cmoy everything is surface mounted so no opamp rolling, but in theory smd opamp would provide better bandwidth also I see caps for bass boast but no switches so the bass boast might be permanently on.
