    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Would you consider the Xelento 2 a dark or warm sounding IEM? What full size beyerdynamic headphones do they sound the most like? The "original" beyerdynamic tuning of DT1770, T5.1 or T1.1/2 or the later and much darker sounding T5.3/T1.3?

    I agree that they are good. But my SR225e gets more listening time and impress me even more each time I listen with them. It’s in the edginess and the slam of the old Grado sound and the Hemps does not have that same open, airy and sparkly sound. But good that there is a Grado for every taste ☺️

    Yes. I had that happen. Now I always make sure that the LED blinks when putting the buds in the case to make sure the charging pins are connecting.

    EarMen Angel

    I sometimes wonder if EarMen named the Angel as a comment to be seen as a direct counter to the Diablo. A direct comparison would indeed be interesting. I almost purchased a used Diablo to hear for myself.

    I work at a toy factory, LEGO to be exact and I can't get enough LEGO builds. Just wanted to share this LEGO Jeep carrying my Etymotic ER-4XR.

    The Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350 Impressions thread

    I just realized that it is not DT-1350 that I had in my drawer... I have the T51p. But I had DT-1350 before I got the T51p and both of them sound great. I really like what I am hearing from these. I need to use them more often.

    The Beyerdynamic T51p Discussion Thread

    I just took my T51p out of the drawer after not having used them for a long time. They still sound very very god for a small portable headphone. I think it is time for them to come out more often.

    This makes me want to take them back out of the drawer again. I haven’t used mine for a while 😎

    EarMen Angel

    Apple has indeed put a chip inside. A chip that is required in order to get the digital sound output from iOS devices. EarMen and a lot of other manufacturers do not include this chip because Apple probably take a hefty price for anyone to purchase it and that would make their products even more...

    EarMen Angel

    Some people mention a firmware-update to the Angel. I have only used the firmware that it had from when I got it. https://earmen-eu.com/products/earmen-angel?_pos=2&_sid=62a6f9e17&_ss=r I can see on this page that there is a dead link to downloading a new firmware. Can anyone help me get the...

    I use this one: Lightning to USB Camera Adapter I also get MQA from Tidal with a Green LED from my iPhone this way. A very capable portable set!

    EarMen Angel

    In order to run it from iOS, you need the apple camera connection kit lightning to usb-a dongle. The the Angel works great with iOS.

    I have liked the TR-Amp for a long time. The Angel is in another league.

    EarMen TR-Amp or Angel FTW! If it is musicality, dynamic and punchy low end.

    Review by 'rasmushorn' on item 'EarMen Angel'

    EarMen Angel I would like to share my impressions of the EarMen Angel. I have had my eyes on the Angel right from the beginning when it was launched and I wanted to buy it as an upgrade from TR-Amp, from the same company EarMen. I was hoping the Angel had more of that wonderful lifelike...

    Etymotic & Westone - Discussion & Impressions (index in 1st post)

    I agree. But after searching on eBay for 3rd party T2 cable for a long time, and not being able to find a suitable one and Etymotic also does not offer a balanced option, I cut my kidney out and traded it in. So, last week I bled the money for a balanced T2 Linum SuperBax 4.4mm TRRRS for my...

    Am I the only one who thought that APP1 sounded better with ANC or transparency mode ON but with APP2, I think they sound better with both OFF? Cleaner, more transparent and a bit more midrange?

    WOW, the bass on the APP2 is REALLY hitting hard and goes deep. Try this track: I would say they are now closer to APM in signature and the ANC is super effective. I have used them on the treadmill in the Gym the last two days and I can bring the volume down to 20-30% instead of 40-50% on the...

    I think the shipibo pads make them look longer but they are about the same size as my Hemps. Serial #825, so right from the beginning.
