    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    My ears heat right up in a closed back headphone. I don’t care how good the MDR-Z1Rs sound, I won’t be able to hear them once I rip them off due to discomfort. Open back on the other hand let my ears breathe and I keep them on much, much longer. I heard the HD800s are getting closer to to the...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    But I’ve read in a few different places in this thread of people claiming that the 1A/TZ/HD800 combo was amazing.. now I’m confused

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Can I ask why you wouldn't recommend the HD660S with the TA? Would the TA not be enough to drive them? or you just don't think the HD660s would do the TA justice? So, what you're saying is, to hear the real difference with the TA, I'd be looking at needing to get the Z1R, huh?

    Thank you!! Would you happen to have a link to that rear USB adapter? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the TA.. What I'm reading is that with a set of headphones, I'm going to notice a world of difference, right? Anyone here listen to the TA through the HD660s?

    The Official Sony TA-ZH1ES Hi-Res Headphone Amplifier (Live From IFA 2016)

    What cable (or cables?) is it that is used to plug the WM1A into the TA-ZH1ES? Also, my guess is the TA needs to be plugged straight into the wall, and not into an extension cord/surge protector, correct? thanks.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I had about 40 hours on my ZX300, and I plugged it into the electrical outlet with my iems attached to the balanced, turned it up to 50, and let it run for a week on a loop. After that, I had over 200 hours on it, and I didn't hear any difference. Not quite sure why, as I realize my experience...

    Has anyone here listened to the WM1A through the Sony PHA-3 headphone amp, and if so, what'd you think?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Anyone come across a small circular hard case for their iems where there's actually enough room for them? I have a pair of SE846s and the upgraded Sony cable which is considerably thicker than the stock cable. Every circular iem case I've found has a diameter of 3" or less inside, and I'm...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Last word on the Shure SRH1840s with the WM1A. They're probably going back. The precision, clarity, soundstage and separation were incredible. But these are truly neutral headphones, and with a fairly neutral sounding DAP, the sound is just a bit too thin, dry, and unexciting. They lacked...

    R5, a new Android DAP by Hiby

    Just bought the Shure SRH1840s cans which I thought I'd be using with my Sony WM1A, but that DAP doesn't really adequately power these headphones. I was going to return them, but then tried them with the R5, and WOW, the synergy is perfect. They work out perfectly with this DAP. The increased...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I prefer strong, forward mids, not too much bass, bright, sparkly highs. Yes, wide soundstage and retaining that excellent, native separation. Warmth and thick vocals not as important. I’m on 3.02 and no idea what region. I don’t have a PC to check, only a Mac.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Finally received the Shure SRH1840s today and am listening as I write this, connected to my WM1A. I'm still waiting for silver coated OCC 4.4 cable from Surf Cables, but am listening through the SE with the stock cable for now. I'm needing to turn the volume of the WM1A up to between 85 and...

    Is there any alternative to Android File Transfer for us Mac users? also, I recently purchase a CD ripping program for Mac called dbPoweramp which includes a metadata tag editor called, "Perfect Tunes." I've been able to use the program to go into my Sony DAP (connected to my Mac with cable) to...

    I'd buy an Android based phone but I have too many other Apple products and need to stay within the ecosystem so that everything syncs and handoffs to eachother. I'm thinking that apple is eventually going to come out with high-res DACs in their phones anyhow

    My apologies if you were the one he was referring to when he said that someone suggested on the forum the R5 sounded as good as a phone! LOL!

    Sounds no better than a PHONE?!! That's nuts! This thing is incredible for its size. And sounds WAY, WAY better. And I love all the sound enhancements/adjustments. It's gotta be the best thing out there for it's size/price. Whoever thought that must've been using some really inferior...

    R5, a new Android DAP by Hiby

    I'm really impressed by the R5. It sounds amazing for such a small player, really packs a PUNCH! I purchased it at the same time as the $1200 Sony WM1A and had to listen to them both several times, switching back and forth, before I noticed a difference. The WM1A has just slightly better...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Anybody ever hear such thing as a metadata editor that goes into your DAP, like a WM1A/1Z (while connected to a computer ) and cleans everything up, replaces or applies new album artwork, and allows you to make manual batch changes? No such thing, right?

    I haven't heard the M15, but you're probably correct from the looks of it. But of course, it lacks the Sony sound signature.

    I'm sure this has been covered somewhere here, but is there a Sony glass screen protector for the WM1A? If so, can someone reply with the model number? I bought an aftermarket one, but I've always had the best experience with the Sony branded ones..
