    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Well the problem for me was when I try to press it deep in the ear canal with the stock tips, it would hurt my ear. Because the metal nozzle is almost flush with the tips opening it was hurting me a bit.

    Oh, so I was the one who snatched the 3rd, and you caught the 2nd. Who will get the last one, I wonder? The world is indeed small.

    CCA in ear monitors Impressions Thread

    CCA CSN was delivered today. The stock tips that came with it are so uncomfortable, had to swap them for starline tips(and the reverse starline tips). Trying them out as I am writing this. One thing that I did notice is that they will not likely be too comfortable (definitely not possible to...

    I don't think the spec is the problem here, as it's the previous Samsung flagship! I guess it's because their software is not right smh. Hopefully it will be better after the next upgrade.

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    db(decibel) is a relative measure, it's not an absolute scale. So what you hear is actually the perceive difference between different frequency. For example if you match both of them in 800hz you will see that fh3 has less sub-bass. Or you can also match them at 500hz, which shows a completely...

    IEMs with huge stage and holographic imaging

    Yes if you take the poll here of course audio will come out first. But think about this, given the choice of upgrading graphics card, and sound card, which one will a gamer upgrade first? That was my point, as long as a game has awesome graphics with great game play, it's all good if the audio...

    I guess ks1 has to compete with cca csn, trn ta1, and possibly dq6. While Kbear lark will compete with heart mirror and ssr. I want to buy them all, lol! :beyersmile: I already ordered the heart mirror, do you think kbear lark make sense after that? Also I don't know whether you have the csn or...

    IEMs with huge stage and holographic imaging

    Part of the reason may have to do with what gamers want. They will want a better graphics in their game than sound. Apart from titles from sound sensitive genre like fps games, audio will always be overlooked over graphics. After all we we process more information through our eyes than ears.

    The discovery thread!

    Seems like a steal, my wife is not comfortable with something like edifier x3(iem like), but is comfortable with her stock earbuds bundled with her iPhone. Most probably this will be really comfortable with bt connection for her. I will order one as soon as I can.

    Tempotec Sonata HD Pro DAC/AMP-> Amazing sound, small size, affordable price!

    Oh, my global volume is really low! 4 bar out of 16 bar in my macbook, and about 5 out of 15 in samsung s10e pro. So I always have low volume without 1 or 2 click away from max in sonata hd pro. Would the sound improves if I put it in half and blast the volume up in my macbook?

    Tempotec Sonata HD Pro DAC/AMP-> Amazing sound, small size, affordable price!

    Just was wondering something, do you guys put it to full volume all the time and control the volume through the music player? Or do you put it some few clicks away from maximum? I am wondering whether it's better to not put the maximum volume as that can cause distortion. *Edit* I do feel a...

    Lol, yeah, at first it was also uncomfortable for me! But after some days it became normal for me. The amount of details they retrieve is just amazing. Maybe I should try out the starsea along the line.
