    Topping DX7 - DAC and balanced headphone amplifier

    Primary use for me is gaming: TV: LG B7 OLED Systems: Xbox One X/PS4 Pro Connection: HDMI to TV, TOSlink out to Topping DX7 Sound format: Stereo PCM I notice that it's much harder to trigger this issue when using a direct optical connection from the console to the DX7, but I was still able to...

    Topping DX7 - DAC and balanced headphone amplifier

    So glad to find someone else with this issue! Unfortunately, no solution found. Every single thing I’ve tried doesn’t mitigate the issue for long. This issue needs more awareness, especially if it’s affecting multiple Topping products. Topping themselves don’t seem to have any interest in...

    Topping DX7 - DAC and balanced headphone amplifier

    Yes, same cable. I’ve tried almost everything on my end that I can think of, but nothing works. It seems to be a known issue on Topping’s end, and I have no option of fixing it with them. It’s so disappointing. I’ll definitely be more reserved about Topping’s products in the future.

As many said, the clasping force is pretty tight but now they feel perfectly fine. Not sure if my head adjusted or if they loosened up, but I can wear...

    Coming from HD-555, Brainwavz HM5 or HD-598?

    Unfortunately, not using any dedicated portable DAC. The best DAC I have would be my Denon AVR-591, which has a dedicated 1/4" plug for headphones, so the HD-555/598 plug directly into it. It sounds good for home theater/gaming when using the AVR. Other than that, I just use my Realtek audio...

    Coming from HD-555, Brainwavz HM5 or HD-598?

    Hey guys, first time poster here but I've lurked for a while. I've been doing a lot of research on these two cans and I'm not sure which is the right decision. I'm coming from a HD-555 and I'm used to its amazing comfort and general sound signature. I'm usually alone when I listen and...
