    The IBASSO dzero mk3 thread

    Will this be Apple-certified?   I was just about to buy the MK2 when I read about this. I am looking forward to the improvements.

    Great Rock Albums!

    The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses My Bloody Valentine - Loveless Ride - Nowhere Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden   My reference albums. The late 80s/early 90s were definitely IMO the best years for sound quality. Lacking the...

    Philips Fidelio L2

    Well course the Hugo should be levels above other DACs. It does cost an arm and a leg after all.   And when will the L2 come to the US? There's someone here who's been itching to buy it!

    Philips Fidelio L2

    Agh, why does the US release keep getting delayed? Sometimes I wonder if it's even worth waiting so long for it, but then I would always read Headfonia's review and that strengthens my resolve.

    Review: NAD Viso HP50

    So I've been using the HP50s for months now. For some reason, the T and S sounds are super strong and hurt my ears, I've never had this problem in the first months of using it, and what's even weirder is that these headphones are more known for being slighty dark. Super weird...

    Philips Fidelio L2

    The L2 looks fantastic so I don't believe that the luxury look is lacking. The build quality however, can you give more info? Haven't seen any other person with these headphones mention anything negative about the build.

    Can anyone else elaborate on the black background of the DX90? The fact that apparently noise is there is bothering. Many people say that the X5 gives off 0 background noise so I want to make sure.

    How easy is the UI to use? And how does the screen hold up in daylight? Any glare?

    AK240 - teardown, justification for price?

    Obnoxious answer samsung :/   It's probably because the buyers want to have the best of the best of the best. Basically why I believe you have trouble comprehending why people would buy this is because you're looking at this from a value perspective, while for those people, when they want the...

    FiiO X7 | DXD | DSD | 384K/64B | ESS9018+ Android | WiFi | Bluetooth | 4 AMP modules | Balanced Out |

    Not really an expert but most of these improvements sound great. The most important one however IMO is a vastly improved UI and build. Lots of reviews mention how awful the X5's UI is and how the lo-res screen's glare makes it impossible to use in the sun.

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II

    I really like the concept of this thread but ugh I have to wade through the absurd amount of off-topic talk just to get to the stories :(   Back to topic:   I had my little sister try out the HP50, and at first she didn't like because it didn't have a lot of bass compared to her random $10...

    Philips Fidelio L2

    Being that the LCD-2 is 3-4 times more expensive than the L2, one would expect that.    The LCD-2 isn't what people would call a value option either. I'd love to hear a more detailed comparison between the two though. Hopefully the L2's comparison is favorable enough to further convince me to...

    Philips Fidelio L2

    The L2's mids are nasally? That doesn't sound good, maybe it just needs to burn-in?

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

    Just came back here to say that after 4 months using these headphones for 8 hours a day, these are still going strong!    When I first got these headphones, they didn't really wow me but they are sort of neutral so I guess that comes with the territory. When I randomly switched back to my...
