    iPhone dongle

    So if I listen to an iPhone 7 onwards there will be no difference in sound between different iterations because I am listening to a DAC in the dongle?

    Tidal download queue.

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum to ask this in. Can anyone tell me where I can see the download queue in Tidal on IOS? Seems to have disappeared in the most recent version.

    Sorry. Awful

    Sorry guys. This new site is bloody awful. I have been active on Head Fi for years but this has killed it stone dead. :(

    Seriously considering selling CD collection.

    Having not played a CD since joining Spotify several years ago and now Tidal, I am thinking of finally selling my CD collection of about 600 discs. Has anyone else done this and regretted it. Or not?

    DAP or DAC/Amp?

    I hope it's OK to ask here. I've only ever used Apple sources and would be very interested to try something different. Tidal is my source of music. DAP's that play Tidal seem to be few and expensive. Would a DAP/Amp be a sensible way to get away from the Apple sound, or are there other...

    Portable DAP for Tidal

    There seems to be limited options for DAP's that play Tidal or similar. Is this an area that is about to unfold? Surely streaming is the future for a lot of audiophiles?

    IPhone 6S measurements

    With all the talk about issues with clicks on the 6S ( which mine doesn't seem to suffer from) I have kind of lost track. What is the consensus on the performance of the 6S as an audio player? Does it still measure up well against high end DAP's?

    Audiophile in mainstream press!

    This article was in Sunday's Observer Magazine. An interesting, honest account of life as an audiophile. Made me realise why I have never felt comfortable with the description. Music is paramount for me.

    Tidal vs Spotify

    Is it logical that I reckon that I hear a difference in SQ between Spotify and Tidal? Spotify Premium claims to be 320 Kbps. I cannot appreciate the difference between 320 and lossless. It seems to me that it is possible that Spotify is streaming at a lower bitrate than they claim. Anyone...

    Post CanJam cynicism.

    I will post this here as I know you guys can take it! This kind of strikes at the heart of what HeadFi is about. I love being on the forum. I probably spend as much time on here as I do listening to music. (I might want to address that!) Anyway. I went to CanJam London yesterday. Met some...

    Different impedance. Benefits?

    if a headphone is available in two impedance so, what is gained by going for a higher impedance?

    Colour for CIEM?

    I don't know if anyone can help. I've ordered some CIEMS in light smoke translucent. I'm worried that they might look a bit medical. Like hearing aids. Anyone got CIEM's in a similar finish. Anyone got an opinion? Much appreciated.

    Well. Here's irony. I just ordered myself an expensive pair of CIEMS just as my Tinnitus seems to be getting worse. :( It used to be that I only heard it in a quiet room. I now hear it in a noisy room and even when listening to music, in quieter passages. I always said that by the time you can...

    BA vs Dynamic drivers

    is there a reason why bass from a BA would have a different quality to a dynamic driver?

    Expectation bias and auditioning.

    I am off to hear some £1k CIEM's tomorrow. It is a very powerful thing psychologically to be told that I am listening to something very expensive. Any tips to hear what they really sound like rather than what my vivid imagination hears?

    Can processing only ruin your music?

    i had a friend who was a sound engineer. He was firmly of the opinion that heavy processing of sound by end users could only bugger up ( technical term!) the signal. I was looking at this device. An anathema to a purist but would it do as claimed and make music more...

    O2 powerful enough for HD600?

    Bear of little brain here again. Is the O2 Objective technically powerful enough to drive the Sennheiser HD600 at high volume?

    Channel balance

    Sorry to keep on about this but it is really spoiling my enjoyment. I am getting the sense that the right channel dominates. The same happens with all my headphones to lesser or greater extent. I don't know if engineers do favour the right? Or if my hearing is faulty. I have tried using the...

    Channel imbalance.

    I thought there was something wrong with my 'phones at first but all the pairs I own have the same skew to the left. I think it is hearing loss in my right ear. So I tried to compensate using the balance control on my 5S. The problem is that even making the smallest adjustment toward the right...

    Amp advice.

    This may be an abuse of what the SS forum is for. It is also a bit much to ask. But. Could anyone give me any insight into these three amps based on the specs?

    Diminishing returns with high end IEM's

    I hope no one minds me posting this here. I am hoping for an objective response. It seems to me that no IEM at any price is perfect. In fact the more expensive the more "Marmite" with major flaws being traded for strengths. Is this an accurate assessment? Is there a quantum leap in enjoyment...

    Am I having fun yet?

    This is a weird one. I have been using a pair of ACS T15's with custom tips running through a Digizoid Zo. The sound is easily way out in front of any headphone I have owned before but. I cant put my finger on what is wrong but I don't seem to be able to just listen to the music rather than...

    Who got headphones?

    I posted this in portable where I tend to post more but I hope it's OK to ask here as well. Who got headphones for Christmas and what did you get? Doesn't really count if they were a present to yourself but post anyway. Very happy holidays to all. :)

    Who got headphones?

    Ok. So who got headphones for Christmas and what did you get? Doesn't really count if you bought them yourself but post anyway. Very Happy Christmas to all.
