    Focal Bathys Hi-Fi Bluetooth & ANC Headphones: Early Impressions

    Probably no difference. The Bathys' DSP will be processing the analogue signal fed into it from the DAC/amp, which would probably be inferior to the Bathys' internal DAC in all likelihood.

    Focal Bathys Hi-Fi Bluetooth & ANC Headphones: Early Impressions

    I plugged the Bathys straight into my Xbox controller - it worked great playing PUBG.

    Burson Audio FUNK, 3Wpc Headphone Amp and 45Wpc Class-AB Speaker Amp

    Very curious to know what the output power is for the LE version - no mention of it on the page?

    Low cost Streamer

    Of course it's an audiophile solution - it's something that helps someone who loves sound stream music. I have a HiFi ROSE RS150 which is a very, very expensive streaming capable DAC. When I play a 24/48 stream via Roon into both the RS150 and the CCA, which feeds the RS150 via Toslink there is...

    Is there supposed to be a link on the download page for the CA1000 Mac Driver?

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck resurrecting a 'bricked' pair of Pandas? Mine worked fine up until the firmware update, then worked 'occasionally' afterwards. Mostly I just get a pulsing white light when trying to charge them/connect them to my Mac, no hint of startup noise...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Have you tried wearing them back-to-front? Does it sound the same to your other ear (probably good to rule that out...).

    Khadas Tea - World's First MagSafe Headphone Amplifier for Smartphones

    I've been looking for a DAC that I can slip inside the chassis of my Bottlehead Crack, this looks thin enough to potentially pop inside the chassis!

    Burson Playmate 2 (3W, ESS9038 DAC, Pre amp, DSD512, USB-C, toslink)

    The Playmate 2 is simply too loud in low gain. '01' is too much volume for reasonably low sensitivity cans like Grados.

    Chord Mojo 2 Thread ___ [product released January 31, 2022 -- starting on page 95 of thread]

    A Shanling M0 Bluetack-ed to the top of the Mojo and connected by USB is an infinitely better choice for music playback than a Mojo/Poly.

    Hagerman Audio Labs "Tuba"

    Before you go spending money on another box, what are you using as a source? A Mac/PC, or a phone? Try using a simple software-based EQ adjustment which will be far more accurate (and affordable) than having to buy an analogue device.

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    After five or so years of listening to my Crack but having to put up with the limited range of the stock volume pot, I finally got around to installing a new one. Following the advice of many people both here and on the Bottlehead forums, I opted for an Alps Blue Velvet. After a bit of...

    2017 Audio Technica new flagship ATH-ADX5000

    I would have kept the ADX5000 as my end-game open-back headphones, but the creaking head-band was simply a deal-breaker for me. Every time I moved my head, it took me out of the music and reminded me that I was wearing headphones. It's a shame, as they're terrifically comfortable and they sound...

    Hagerman Audio Labs "Tuba"

    The stock tubes + EQ. If you're trying to change the sound of your headphones by buying and swapping out tubes you're in for a frustrating and futile journey.

    The Bottlehead Crack is an extremely poor pairing with the Aeon, I can confirm.

    The Mobius creates the 3D effect itself - it doesn't require a '3D compatible' source.
