    AirPods Max

    Fun - after three days with this headphone, that’s how I would describe it. When I am listening, I just enjoy the music and don’t think about anything else. Playing with the accessibility options at different volumes also is enjoyable. I understand that the lack of a comparison to my home...

    AirPods Max

    I am curious about this too. I actually use my AirPods Pro with ANC most of the time because I prefer it to ANC off. With the AirPods Max listening so far, I prefer ANC off. ANC on the APM is excellent, but unexessary for me when listening at home and I find that the APM has quite a bit of...

    Back after 10 Years - Aeon Flow Open DAC+Amp Recommendations

    Audio-GD is intriguing, but I have had enough random stuff go wrong with electronics over the years that I prefer a manufacturer with a strong U.S. presence, understanding that I may be paying a little more up front for the peace of mind. I need to stop reading though, because now I am...

    Back after 10 Years - Aeon Flow Open DAC+Amp Recommendations

    The more I read, the more I am leaning towards the JDS stack. It appears that it may hit my price to performance sweet spot and the El DAC would scale up nicely if I decide to upgrade my amp down the line.

    Back after 10 Years - Aeon Flow Open DAC+Amp Recommendations

    I am getting back into headphones after 10 years away. My last rig was a modified Jolida JD100 + RSA Raptor + HD650 and ATH-W11JPN. This time around, I will be using my MacBook Pro as a source, with both lossless and compressed files, and I have settled on the AFO as my headphones. I...

    Around the house unamped: PX100 v. SR60 v. ?

    I am looking for a good cheap headphone to use around the house with my iPod unamped -both 5g and Touch 2g. I listen to all kinds of rock - classic, modern, alternative, alt-country, etc. - and some other types of music including folk, blues, and older country. I used to own HD650s paired with a...

    Apple - Wrong product delivered, no Apple packaging, iPod in a plastic bag!

    Seems to me that someone -- either Apple or FedEx -- screwed up, and that Apple is taking care of the problem no questions asked. If Apple did send out the iPod and it got switched out along the way, Apple has no way of knowing whether you are just trying to get two iPod videos for the price of...

    A900LTD Question

    I have seen conflicting posts as to whether W5000 pads will fit on the A900LTD. Anyone tried this? Did they fit? Thoughts on comfort, sound, etc. Many thanks.

    E500/Hornet Volume Poll

    Below the first hash mark with both the UM2 and the E500. I just got my amp back from getting the M mod, and Ray checked the gain at that time, so my amp is working as it should.

    Hornet Volume Knob Gold or Silver?

    My Hornet is from the first batch -- serial number 9040 -- and had a silver knob. I sent it in for the M mod and some other adjustments and it came back with a gold knob. I actually preferred silver.

    Why your awesome IEMs sound bad from your iPod and what YOU can do about it!

    The described process sounds like a very cumbersome way of getting to results similar to those that MP3Gain and AACGain allow you to very easily reach, and without messing with your tags. MP3Gain and AACGain are also completely reversible. Of course your files have to be in MP3 or AAC format.

    Congratulations, Ray! And for the fourth week in a row, I really need to get my Hornet in to you for the M mod. Now if I could just part with it for a few days.

    Anyone else excited about the (possible) new ipod?

    Quote: Originally Posted by dotbydot do you think it'll be possible to update the current 5G for gapless playback? Or are those new features only for the new 5Gs? That's my question too. It should be a simple software upgrade, but who knows if they will implement it on existing 5G...
