    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    it's more about the amp's performance qualities: stage, layering, blackness of background, resolution, dynamics, attack/decay, etc Yes, you're generally going to get better performing amps the higher up the audiophile cost ladder you venture. It's up to you to decide if that gain (over a...

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    I just took the plunge and signed up for the trial to find out Amazon music HD still can't directly communicate with DACs! This is just unreal to not have WASAPI or ASIO exclusive, (and CoreAudio support if you're on a MAC). Why in the world would anyone want hires music that's going to have...

    Custom Art FIBAE 7 announcement & impressions thread

    that may have been a one off custom design for @subguy812. He probably doesn't care if you want the same/similar design - but may want to PM him.

    Custom Art FIBAE 7 announcement & impressions thread

    Yes, CA is one of the few - if not the only - upper tier manufacturer who keeps their prices sane. Because of this, they've earned my business twice now. I have the Black and the F7 - both customs. With regard to the F7 - I haven't heard anyone (who got the custom version) voice...

    DUNU DK-2001 - 3 BA + 1 beryllium DD hybrid: the long-awaited follow-up to the DN-2000 and DN-2000J!

    well, I wear contacts, but I understand how the 'pulling' can happen. For that reason, I use shirt clips with my IEMs.

    Endless forms most beautiful is probably one of my top 20 all time albums by any artist. Eagerly anticipating a new full length release from them.

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    or what role that bone conduction driver will play with increased distortion (unwanted resonances, intermodulation, etc).... still looks interesting.

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    for a somewhat budget option, check out Satin Audio cables. Here's a good comparison between their entry level offerings. I have the pure copper (Griffin) and love it with my fibae 7. It won't fade/roll off the high end, but pairs well with brighter BA IEMs as it avoids any zingy sounds -...

    DUNU DK-2001 - 3 BA + 1 beryllium DD hybrid: the long-awaited follow-up to the DN-2000 and DN-2000J!

    Very impressed with these. Ideal tuning right out of the box. Extension in highs is surprising actually, going strong until my hearing goes out at 16k. Bass textures are nice and speed is not sluggish. Decay is spot on and lingers just a tad to sound natural. My only gripe is a 4 dB treble...

    Android: Neutron Music Player

    I think neutron is standard battery drain for 3rd party app, comparable to others. Only real excessive drain for me is 'PCM to DSD' function or very high oversampling in 64 bit audiophile mode. Aside from that, it's similar to Hiby, UAPP, etc. I did note that Mango is better on battery than...

    this is what steered me away from DX220. What amp are you using may I ask?

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    the uneven treble isn't necessarily done on purpose. but yes, you have a good question. Why is it that many IEMs have such uneven treble? I'd venture to guess (but don't know for sure) that it's about how sound behaves in a small enclosed area. Reflections will cause standing waves (areas...

    Did you have to obtain a loan by shady means to obtain your LPGT? Now that's a testament to the love of audio and a solid commitment to the hobby!

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    do you mean frequency response peaks and valleys? An uneven treble response? I'm a bit confused by your use of the word 'phase'.

    Introducing LUNA by DUNU, the world's first pure beryllium rolled foil diaphragm flagship dynamic in-ear!

    I think he means Luna doesn't have any impedance negating tech. Like 64's LID or customart's FIBAE tech.

    iBasso DX150. Dual dacs and interchangeable AMPs. **NEW Firmware that supports AMP9! ** New FIRMWARE 1.05 Dec 30.

    thanks. After I posted, I remembered the SD card flash method. I tried doing that (after reacquainting myself with it - it's been a while since I've done it). It went as expected, nice and clean, but still no working amp9. I ended up borrowing a friend's pc laptop and tried ibasso's android...

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Tag editors have come a long way and are easier to use. Meta for Mac is outstanding. Sure there is similar for windows.

    iBasso DX150. Dual dacs and interchangeable AMPs. **NEW Firmware that supports AMP9! ** New FIRMWARE 1.05 Dec 30.

    Glad this worked for you. I just bought a second hand amp9 on the forums and am having the same issue getting it to work with DX150. I'm pretty good with android, but don't have a windows computer that I can install the 'android tool'. I only have a mac, so I'm not sure if there is a guide on...

    Which music player and why?

    Uapp streams tidal qobuz etc. Neutron doesn't. This and user interface are main reasons users gravitate to uapp. That said I own both, but prefer neutron for PEQ and 64 bit processing quality of local files. Hands down.
