    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I'm afraid not. At least not well enough to make AFC sound their best. It requires more current than most portable device can deliver. IME, AFC will sound best on desktop amps. Most people I see complaining AFC sound too thin is because it is more or less under driven. Get something like the...

    NEW! SENDY AUDIO AIVA Impressions?

    In reference to T1, together with Aiva is like you said treble focused. As I mentioned while ago, the Aiva reminds me of T1. My overall impression is that Aiva improves on the shortcomings of T1. As far as poor recording is concerned, the Aiva is way less harsher and enjoy listening on it more...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    Has anyone tried or found an alternative headband for the cascade? The headband is what stopping me from making this headphone stay longer on my head. They are just not comfortable. I hate it when I had to stop listening to this headphone just to relieve the discomfort. I hope CA can look at...

    NEW! SENDY AUDIO AIVA Impressions?

    Yeah the graph you see for this can looks bad. But the result can vary from one person to another. When I tried this on it's just amazing. ignoring Zeos' hyperbole, I can see why he is saying this is a steal for headphone.

    NEW! SENDY AUDIO AIVA Impressions?

    True, for 600 USD it’s still a bargain. I have headphones that cost much more that I think will never use again and would sell soon (e.g. AFC) I am not supposed to buy this yet as I have not tried the headphone myself. But saw the drop yesterday and placed my order immediately. After work, I...

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

    "Free USB bandwidth after playback" was already enabled/ticked. Disabling/unticking actually solved the problem. Did you actually mean disable rather than enable? Anyway thanks for pointing me to the right direction.

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

    When playing a track either from the beginning or coming from a pause, around 2 seconds of audio is cut at the start of the song. I'm using the E1DA USB DAC/amp with Samsung Note8 on Android 9. Tried playing with the settings but can't find anything that works. Neutron does not show this...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    I use cascade with cloth pad as portable. To me yes, it's an iem replacement if you can live with it when out and about. Regardless of price no iem can match the experience of listening to a headphone. Just like a headphone to a speaker. imo the headband fit needs improvement. At least for me...

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    I like the look and color of the ear cups too. But the headband could be better. It just look weird when I have it on my head. I like to use it when out and about and people really notice how it looks weird. I am wonder if the cascade cups with the haedband of ATH-M headband could look way better.

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    Got this and the construction quality is excellent. They throw in a nice case too.

    Well, they kicked me out of the official Chord Poly Thread ...

    Yeah I remember you are very active arguing the merits of the specs back then. But with the price of poly, they only need to sell a few and they can turn a healthy profit I guess. Not sure how much it cost now but it was more than the mojo as far as I remember.

    Well, they kicked me out of the official Chord Poly Thread ...

    You can't convince people if they are already sold or rooted very deep into their beliefs. It's like religion. No point in arguing, it's just not healthy and the only thing you can do is move on. I don't post here as much as I used to but still lurking about because it's still a good forum to...

    Questyle QP2R

    yeah that’s the most important feature added:)

    Questyle QP2R

    sounds like a qp2r, replace the 2.2mm out with 4.4mm. slightly increased voltage output in shinier package. The slightly higher voltage out compensated by slightly higher thd + n. Just hope the hiss is gone with very sensitive iem. I would have gone for a QP2R + 2nd micro sd slot.

    Best dynamic driver IEMs?

    e-earphone and other audio shops (even yodobashi) is like disneyland to Audiophiles. Whenever I'm in Japan I always bring something back home. Japan has a very good used/second hand market. I will be coming back in August and I'm going for an ex1000 hunt.

    Best dynamic driver IEMs?

    GR09 is a warm (forward bass and smoother treble) compared to T8ieMK2. It does not have the sparkle that may give it an impression that it sound less resolving. I find it very sensitive to tips. Find one the works best for you. I don't like foam tips on GR09, makes it sound a bit dull.

    iBasso DX120 pure DAP player. Balanced, single ended, line out and 2 micro SD slots. FW 2.9.21 now out!

    Anyone curious how DX120 performs when measured, head over to ASR. Measurements look good except of a sharp roll-off starting at 1Khz in Frequency Response.

    On headphones, yeah it may have effect, but DAP like qp2r? Please, .. unless you show an evidence.

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I have the V280. Should be no problem with AFC. Output imoedance may not be exactly 0 but low enough to be worried about it regardless of tge headphone you use. Beside, AFC is purely resistive and has flat impedance curve. Output impedance won't matter.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    Yes, I get that in UAPP but not in Neutron. However, Neutron now crashes randomly and sends a loud pop to the headphone. Just connect DX200Ti using USB to an external DAC that has USB input and use 3rd-Party apps (UAPP, Neutron, Hiby , etc). This used to be the only way to bypass Anroid audio...

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    I'm on the latest FW (both official/add-on) When playing DSD files using 3rd-party players (UAPP, Neutron, Hiby) I hear noise in addition to the music when connected to an external DAC via USB. Anyone else have this problem?

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Speaker systems always when it's available but it can't be with you all the time unlike KSE. I'm still amazed at how my silver phantoms sound. But sadly, I can't use it as much as I can with KSE.

    New Inear Prophile-8

    Try a different source and see if that is the cause. basically check each components in your chain (from file to earphone). I don't hear anything like you are describing with PP8. I suspect it maybe due to your source. I had a Fiio X7 and had all sorts of distortion (interference) when near...
