    Any One Else Agree That IEMs Using Portable DAC/AMP yields little to no improvement? Agree or Disagree?

    I get noticeably better sound using my desktop DAC amp and my Etys vs. using my phone and a $50 DAC amp portable setup. A pair of HiFi IEMs with that nice flat sound will still appreciate good upstream components, even if they are being driven loud enough by the phone...

    Upgrading DAC and amp, need suggestions...

    OP Update: New setup is Etymotic ER4SR, SMSL SU-8 DAC, Loxjie P20, some Russian PAHNO 6H3NE tubes, a $50 balanced cable and adapter. Full balanced and plenty of watts. Sure as hell, there is a massive leap in performance in every area of performance, especially low level detail, dynamics, and...

    Arizona Head-Fi MiniCon the Third: March 23rd, 2019

    Does anyone have ANC headphones I can demo? The meet will be the perfect place to test the noise isolation capabilities.

    Arizona Head-Fi MiniCon the Third: March 23rd, 2019

    Maybe having a potentially smaller turnout could be a blessing in disguise in regards to the ambient noise level being lower... I've always wanted to get true intimate experiences with gear at head-fi meets, but it can be really difficult with such a high noise floor. I was wondering if...

    Upgrading DAC and amp, need suggestions...

    Since I use Tidal alot, should I buy a DAC that does MQA? After some research, it seems like DSD might be a dying format because it's not streamable. And streaming seems like the new default, most popular format to me. Last time I was at head-fi meet, 90% was streaming Tidal or Spotify. Zero...

    The Bose QuietComfort 35 II Sound Great

    I've followed Bose products for the past 10-15 years and always enjoyed their sound signature for casual listening and convenience. Even remember being impressed with Bose sound as a child with totally virgin ears. As I got into this hobby I fell in love, got some serious equipment and found...

    4 pin XLR to 3.5mm balanced cable?

    I am buying a friend some balanced cables for his Denon 7200 headphones. He needs the length to be atleast 4ft, but not longer than 7ft. Wants a nice colored nylon type of cable. Something like this would be perfect, however the length is too long...

    Best bluetooth IEM's under $50?

    Looking for a pair of decent, basic Bluetooth IEM's for my girlfriend. She's not worried much about aesthetics, features, or battery life. She prefers a somewhat boosted type of sound signature. Something with a little extra bass and a forward type of sound while still being smooth. Any...

    Friend is selling turntable. Should I buy?

    I have a buddy who is trying to get me to buy his turntable. Ive never owned one before and am a total noob when it comes to vinyl. I have heard some high end stuff at meets and always liked the smooth sound, so have been curious. Here is what he is trying to sell me: Music Hall mmf-2.3le...

    [A 'Mini-Con'!] Arizona Head-Fi Meet: October 21st, 2017

    You will be pleasantly surprised how good IEM's can be. The best IEMs out there will easily compete with, and sometimes surpass a similar priced headphone in some respects. The main area where full sized headphones usually win is soundstage, although some IEMs can have very good soundstage too...

    Headphones should sound like headphones

    Yeah, I’ve tried some Shure SE215, vmodas (cant remember which), Beats, Bose, and a few other sort of expensive ones. Honestly, the $10 Monoprice 9927 is amazing for what it is, presenting a fairly uncolored and open sound sort of like the Etys, but a bit rolled off in the treble and sounding...

    Headphones should sound like headphones

    With my Etymotics, everything sounds like it’s coming out of thin air and presenting the music in a hologram, or USB port plugged into your brain Most headphones I’ve tried sound like music is coming through a tube to try and make it seem like your hearing it live. That’s the best way I can...

    Headphones should sound like headphones

    I think manufacturers and Head-fiers should recognize that the ever popular trend of trying to make headphones sound like speakers in a room is an exercise in futility and waste of your time. A lot of it comes down to the diffuse field vs. free field argument. To the unfamiliar audiophile...

    Etymotic, still the best?

    Im not so active on these forums anymore. I try to focus on the music as opposed to the gear. I only buy gear when I have to. I recently lost my beloved Etymotic mk5 and need a replacement. So here it is, 2017. Lots of options nowadays. I can't keep up... I'm thinking about buying another pair...
