    Sony NW-ZX300

    Thanks for the quick reply. I've almost made up my mind with your reassurance. Do you use any connector with your 4.4mm balanced cable in order to use it with standard (3.5mm) sockets? Since I'm also on the market for a 4.4mm female to 3.5mm male connector cable...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Shane D, I'm considering getting that KK balanced cable for myself. Do you still consider it good? I would love to go for Effect Audio or Moon Audio products but they are very expensive for me. How is the build of KK balanced cable and how is the sound coming out of them? Any microphonic sound...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I like your logic, though my IEMs (Earsonics SM3 v2) were 400 Euros when they were still sold on the Earsonics online shop. So, I take it you're happy with the sound coming from those cables, is that so?

    Audiophile iOS audio player

    My setup: Iphone X + Dragonfly Red. I've just installed VOX and Onkyo players to test them out. I've put in my iphone's itune library 24 bit files with various sampling rates (including 44.1 khz, 48 khz, 88.2 khz and 96 khz). I haven't paid for premium versions of VOX and Onkyo players. When I...

    EarSonics S-EM6 & S-EM6v2 Six driver universal IEM

    Thank you very much for the comparison. It's vary valuable help for me. I like the emphasized bass on the SM3V2 (which I wouldn't call it a bassy IEM), while I can imagine it could be more refined. How is the bass on the S-EM6V2? I'm definitely not a basshead, I just wouldn't like thin sound...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Thank you very much for your responses. I have an Earsonics SM3 IEM with a 2 pin connector and 3.5mm unbalanced termination. If I go with Effect Audio I should go with this, right? Though, I must admit I don't like the color of that copper wire... I was also considering Moon Audio...

    I'm planning to get a 4.4mm balanced IEM cable with 2 pin connectors. I found this wonderful set which is something I'd love to have and the price is good, too, however it has only 4 pole connectors. http://www.meeaudio.com/CMB-BAL-SET I'm looking for such a set with 2 pin connector option...

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    My wife has an iphone 6 and sennheiser urbanites. Her major complaint is low volume levels she gets from this combo. She listens to classical music and they tend to be recorded at lower volumes. Anyway, I intend to get her a DFR because of its size and good sound quality. Would iphone 6 and...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I apologize for my ignorance... If I have my IEM recabled as balanced 2.5 mm then I won't be able to use it with any other device, such as my laptop, right? Is it possible to have my IEM recabled as balanced with a 3.5 mm jack and still be able to use it with devices with 3.5 mm female...

    Do you mean I'd better check whether my IEMs use 3.5 mm connectors? Maybe Earsonics would re-do my cable? I'll check with them...

    I don't understand. How is my IEM with the 3.5 mm connector (Earsonics SM3) to be used with the balanced out?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Thanks for the quick reply. Wow! Less than 70 % and it sounds so amazing? Then I'm definitely investing in the balanced out! ... The item you recommended is 2.5 to 4.4 mm converter. I need 3.5 to 4.4 converter. Any recommendations for that would be appreciated.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Is this 3.5 mm to 4.4 mm jack fine or would it decrease SQ I'd get from the balanced out? https://www.amazon.com/Geekria-Balanced-Gold-Plated-Adapter-NW-WM1A/dp/B075165H2M/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1512475531&sr=8-2&keywords=3.5+to+4.4+mm Also, is investing in the balanced out worth it? I mean...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Friends, I have two questions before finally pulling the trigger on the NW-WM1A... 1. From what I understand NW-WM1A doesn't have a DAC chip of brands sych as Sabre, Cirrus, AKM etc. Is this a disadvantage or does it mean inferior sound quality compared to DAPs that have those DACs? Could you...

    What is the sound quality of iPhone, iPad, iPod (Touch)?

          Thanks for the answers. She's considering getting portable headphones (cans), so what is the impedance value that the cans should have at minimum and maximum so that she will not need an amp to use it with Iphone 5s (and the same question for Ipod touch, also) ?

    Iphone 5s vs Ipod Touch 5G + The Impedance issue

    I've seen a few comments in several threads, but I couldn't find any recent thread dedicated specifically to the players mentioned...   I have owned a Zune, Ipod Classic 6G and currently I have a Cowon X7. That's my experience with DAPs.   My girlfriend has a 4 year old Sony NW-A800 with 8...

    Quote:   Thanks. That's a relief to hear.   Quote:   How would EPH-100 and GR07 compare soundwise? I think my girlfriend would like the look of EPH-100 more, so I'm leaning towards that, but would I be sacrificing sound quality if I choose it over GR07?   Also, some people...

    Need recommendations for very comfortable, neutral IEMs for around 100 $

    Looking to buy a pair of IEMs for my girlfriend. My budget is around 100 $. May stretch up to 120 $. Most importantly the IEM must be very comfortable. So I'm looking forward to hearing your recommendations for an IEM that's very comfortable, with good neutral sound and good isolation that is...

    Earsonics sm3 V2

    Quote: In the first 3-4 days the body of the V2s hurt my ears more than the V1s used to. I could listen to music with the V1s for 90 minutes before I had to take it out to give my ears a break, since they started out good but began to make themselves felt and finally hurt my ears after...
