    SASH Deux & Tres; impressive planars from Ukraine

    The thing is I do not know if it's the drivers that have issues, or is it the female sockets on the headphones that have issues. Testing a different cable and reversing left and right will not reveal a difference between the two potential problems. I agree with you that wires breaking free at...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    The number one feature that caught my attention is their claim of pure graphene driver. Because as far as I know, almost all or maybe all headphones and earphones out in market today that claim to use graphene drivers are in reality using a normal dynamic driver coated with graphene, instead of...

    Don't forget Oppo /Dynaudio too haha. I own the LG FP 5 (the FP5, 8 and 9 all sound the same anyway, so I may as well just buy the cheapest one) and I love it, although only on the treble boost eq setting. I tried the Huawei Freebuds Pro and didn't like it as much. A bit too bass heavy for me...

    I had a similar issue with Drop Grell TWS, only the Symbio tips work for me.

    Understood! May I ask where in Singapore did you try the Oppo Enco X2? I'm currently in Singapore right now.

    Any reason why you recommend the Freebuds Pro 2 over the Oppo Enco X2? Have you tried both and preferred the former?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Haven't been following this thread for a while so I might have missed out: has anyone tried the Oppo Enco X2? I have 3 TWS on my radar and it's the only one that I can easily buy right now (other 2 being the Pixel Buds Pro and Huawei Freebuds Pro 2). Getting it from China, it should cost me...

    RAAL-requisite CA-1a Circum-Aural Ribbon Headphone is here! @HeadAmp

    A very small quibble, but technically they're not the first cirum-aural ribbon headphones, there is a small Chinese company selling cirum-aural ribbon headphones only in China since a few years ago, I bought a pair and eventually sold it, it was really good for its price ($300-400ish). I've...

    Former Sennheiser engineer Axel Grell made a $200 pair of ANC true wireless earbuds - the TWS/1

    Hard reset is done by pressing your fingers on both side and holding for 10 secs. You can hear some beeping sound at the start, but you don't hear anything at the 10s mark. After 10 secs, put them back in the case, delete the pairing from your phone, then take them out and re-pair them. That's...

    Former Sennheiser engineer Axel Grell made a $200 pair of ANC true wireless earbuds - the TWS/1

    Received this pair of earphones and man, they were the most problematic TWS I have right out of the box. Initially only the left unit will play unit while the right stays silent (but I know it's functional since there is still the beeping sound as I tap on it) so I did a factory reset. After...

    Isn't KZ's style more to stuff 3 drivers inside, but only 1 is actually hooked up and in use while the other two are for looks? Lol

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I have both the Mode II and the Motif. The Mode II does not have ANC, while the Motif is the only Marshall TWS to have ANC. I haven't done any serious testing of the ANC but in general, I find it to be above average. I mostly use the Motif with the ANC switched on.

    Astell&Kern AK UW100 TWS Earbuds

    Erm did you just market it by saying that it's better because it uses Knowles BA drivers rather than dynamic drivers?

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I can't say for sure... I only know that they haven't fix the supply for good, that's why the silver finish cost $10 more, and there could be supply disruption limited to the silver model.

    Just a photo of the store I was at and what they have available for demo. I tried the LG FP9 on the 12th, tried the FP5 and FP8 today so will give a quick summary of what I think of the sound. On paper I expected all 3 of them to sound similar, because they have the same sized driver, and...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Went to test the Nuarl N10 plus at a local audio store. The shop assistant gave me an odd look and plopped the LG FP9 in front of me too. He said they can't move the Nuarl N10 plus due to how huge the iems and charging case are, while the FP9 are selling like hot cakes. No harm trying both...

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Has anyone installed the MB DAC card himself in the Asgard 3? Thinking of buying a used unit and getting the card separately from Schiit to install myself, not sure how hard or easy it will be. I couldn't find much info, except for a video installing a ESS card in Jot 2 and it looks to be a...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I have a Schiit mani that is gather dust now. I had to keep my turntables because my cats love to jump down on them... Have to find out what to do to discourage them from doing so. Saw many comments on the OG Mani that while the MM portion is great, they found the MC portion lacking. So will be...

    Yea I remembered seeing those when it came out, read up on them but lost interest because of their size. The verge's review on the Linkbuds made me interested to try them out for myself.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    The linkbuds are definitely one of the most interesting TWS releases, can't wait for them to come to a sony store near me so I can test them out. I'm not sure I will even group them as earbuds since they're even more open than earbuds with the donut shape.

    Single Dynamic Driver Lovers Discussion

    Ahh a thread after my own heart. I didn't plan to only listen or buy single DD earphones but along the way, I discovered that most of the earphones that I like listening to are single DD earphones. My holy grail target is the Futuresonics customs (still not sure the 5 or 6 will be more...

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Apologies for a question that might have been asked multiple times before: Is there much of an audible difference between using the Asgard 3 with a Modi MB vs the Asgard 3 with the MB card? I understand that you're losing port options going from a Modi to a card, but I can use the preamp out...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Thanks for the link! Hopefully they can somehow turn the Modi MB into the Modius MB with a price tag of $350. It'll be a darn shame if they cancel the Modi MB and the cheapest MB DAC you can get is the Bifrost priced at $699.
