    Audeze SINE Series

    So I hear the more recent EL-8s are much better and free of problems of the past. Any comparisons of the Sine vs. EL-8C, a good recent pair?

    JH Audio Layla Impressions Thread

    It sounds pretty good, and the cable itself is lighter too. The only downsides are that the Y-split is closer to your neck and the 2.5mm jack is a straight jack instead of an angled jack.   I've gotten used to both changes. I actually like the Y-split being closer now? The straight jack is...

    JH Audio Angie Impressions and Discussion Thread

    There is a slight emphasis on the vocals but nothing like the SE846 or LCD-2 where vocals are thick in your face. I think the Angie sounds pretty neutral overall and even across the board. It definitely doesn't have recessed mids... but to say up front vocals would also kind of be an...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Yeah definitely looking forward to it. Your impressions helped seal the deal for me, along with Drew's reasonable pricing.   Some these Layla cables are the price of getting a JH Rosie as a 2nd IEM.   I will try not to hype these up

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Man... I've put some natural burn-in time on the AK120ii now and this thing is seriously kicking ass across the board. Dynamic and explosive while being silky and layered... from memory the gap between it and the AK100ii is widening in my mind...   Seriously what an awesome... Layla is just...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    I'm at work with my 120ii => Layla set up and pure awesomeness is exploding in my ears. I'm being gobsmacked by waves of heavenly angels singing my auditory senses into submission.   Like many have said on this thread... I think the AK120ii is a great place to stop for a while. Rest a year or...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Yeah I agree with the not stacking part. I used to stack when it was fashionable to do so on Head-Fi. The situation is so different now that we have high quality DAPs we could never have dreamed of in the past. I remember when iMod and Sony Walkman (Hello Cowon Daps of the past!) were the best...

    I have been purposefully avoiding it... along with the AK380... I'm fearful of what I might hear... Haha

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Funnily enough the Jr is not like the AK100ii.   It's very lively and exciting and engaging. It's even brighter than the AK120ii, but the sound is so meaty... tonal density of the Wolfson will be like WOAH... this is what was missing from my AK100ii. Hence my initial reaction to it was so...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    I see... yeah... I don't see your posts as hostile at all.   I'm trying to be a good communicator but failing miserablly... how about me just saying the AK100ii sounds more relaxed? and leaving it at that?   Haha.. I think the word "fatigue" might not have been the best choice... when I said...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    It's not fatiguing, AK120ii is silky smooth with very black/silent background, only comparatively to the AK100ii... again only comparatively to the AK100ii... the AK100 is like a calm silent pond in a quiet forest, very relaxing. It's like the AK120ii on sleeping pills... haha or relaxation...

    JH Audio Layla Impressions Thread

    Yeah I'm still sad about your situation. I have no idea why to my ears my particular Layla sounds so neutral and even. It's not like I don't have enough experience to know what dips and peaks are in the frequency response.   I love studio reference like linear sound and my particular Layla...

    Yes! the difference is HUGE~~~ MASSIVE~~~~ BIGGER THAN THE UNIVERSE times a ZILLION Universes   GO SPEND MORE MONEY!!!   I'm obviously kidding . The differences are slight. Like "Brooko Slight/small/tiny" Yes... really. In fact I'm not surprised people who have had a quick listen to the...

    Brand Spanking New A&K AK120II and AK100II

    Thanks! I feel very fortunate and also very excited to get to know the AK120ii better.   I started with the AK100ii and then sold it thinking I'll get the AK320 and then I got sidetracked by Cowon Plenue S and had a small fling with the AK Jr... back now with serious business.   This should...

    X7ii has been announced... so it begins... Haha   Fiio usually updates every 18 months for there DAPs so it's not surprising... the X7ii will be pretty amazing I bet. The DAP market will continue to grow... AK will probably have a $10,000 AK720 by then... not to mention a dozen super hyped up...

    Astell & Kern Junior (AK Jr.) Impressions Thread

    I know there is a lot of unhappy people on this thread... but I personally do like the JR as a product.   It sounds great for the price... I prefer the sound over the Ibasso D90 and Fiio X5. I also like the UI better too... In fact on just sound alone I think I prefer the JR over the AK100ii...

    Wow the AM2 module has me excited... as somebody who closely followed the original X3 thread and being dissapointed when the project was cancelled and then thrilled when revived...   Fiio has come a long way. Just amazing.   I remember buying and listening to the original X3 thinking it was...
