    Focal Clear headphones

    Super helpful. Thanks very much for the additional info. I see you’ve also got the Hd650s. Are your impressions with the Senns and SMSL also positive? My two most-used headphones are the Clears and the Hd6xx. Thank you!

    Focal Clear headphones

    I was just starting to wonder if anyone was using the Clears with any of the THX amplifiers. I have some tube amps when I want a little more spice, but I'd love to hear more about how the Clear pairs with the SMSL amp you've got there. That sure seems like a lot of amp for the money, and any...

    Cayin HA-6A Tube Headphone Amplifier (KT88 and EL34) with XLR4 and 4.4mm Impedanced Matched Output (US$2,399)

    Very curious to see if this might also be used an amp, or a preamp...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I own a Freya, Bifrost, and Lyr 2, and so I'm curious about the Mjolnir 2, but, really, the killer product that I want to buy from Schiit is a Freya+ plus Mjolnir's balanced HP output. Think of it like a tube Ragnarok in terms of quality, but as a pre-amp only ( and potentially with 2 x XLR). I...

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I can’t help here, but as the owner of a Freya who is considering a Wa22 I’m very interested in this comparison, too.

    Please do! I’m interested in both it’s synergy with the Chord DAC and it’s ability as a preamp. Thanks!

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    Thanks for this. I’ve got the Clear and Hd6xx so this is great info. One question for the group: My use case would call for the Wa22 to see a lot of use as a preamp feeding Dynaudio Focus 160s with Hypex Nc500 monoblocks. Is there a good consensus about how the wa22 works as a preamp? Is it on...

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    As a Freya owner, I don't think there's enough here for me to want to upgrade to Freya+, but if I were buying new, I'd be very happy with the changes, as they've solved nearly every quibble I have with my unit. What would have gotten me to upgrade? Turning Freya into Ragnarok2 + tube minus the...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the thoughtful reply. My comment re: the HD6XX being expensive was mostly tongue-in-cheek, and I agree with you that headphones make a far bigger change than sources. My situation is only made a little trickier by a potential move that would put the Bifrost / Lyr 2 in a different...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Just a quick note to say hi and subscribe to this thread. I just picked up a pair of HD6XXs for the office, and I'm really happy with them so far. This is not my first experience with the HD650, but I "needed" a comfortable, easy-to-listen to headphone for long working sessions, and the HD6XX...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    yep - that's what i was afraid of. Good excuse for me to upgrade, I guess.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Could you be specific about which model you're referring to? To be clear, I am talking about Apple TV 3, not Gen 4 standard. When I try to connect via Bluetooth, it only references connecting BT keyboards. After noticing that fine print, I found this, which seems to confirm: context...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Yes, I have a previous generation Apple TV, and it doesn't support Bluetooth headsets. I *think* the AppleTV 4K does, however. So, it might be time for an upgrade because movies with Bluetooth headphones are a big reason I was eager to try the Mobius.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    A quick update here. I've solved - but not fixed - my problem. It turns out that both of my sources ( Sony Bravia TV and AppleTV ) are Bluetooth enabled...but not for audio in this way. Most Bravias are, but for whatever reason, mine is not. And I'm using the last generation of AppleTV. Just my...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Good question. When I get home, I will make sure that I manually disconnect my Mobius from any other sources before trying to set this up again. This step hasn't been necessary to switch between sources where its already working, but perhaps something there is preventing the headset from making...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I am. Trying to pair using the same sequence that connects my Mobius to my laptop and iPhone. The TV just sort of hangs there, searching for devices, and the Mobius is in pairing mode. They just never connect.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I may have posted about this before, but I am unable to get my Mobius to pair with my Sony Bravia (Android) TV or my Apple TV. Both of them are Bluetooth enabled, and have easily accessible "pairing" or "add new device" options, but neither of them will connect to my Mobius. For whatever its...

    Focal Clear headphones

    I wish I could be more helpful here, but my Lyr 2 is different enough from your 3 that my input would only of limited use. No issues with the pairing on my end. I do hope you can get this sorted out, though. Must be frustrating.

    Just curious - how does the WA6 compare to the WA33? Different leagues, certainly, wrt price, but if you have any thoughts, I'd be interested.

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    My apologies if this has been asked before. I wonder if I'm missing something here, but i've been trying to connect my Mobius to either my AndroidTV or my AppleTV without much luck. In both instances, when I try to pair via Bluetooth, the circle simply spins indefinitely, and the headset never...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I swapped my original order Mobius out for a new pair that arrived last week. I didn't consider the hiss a major issue before (noticeable, but not a deal-breaker) but I am happy to report the new pair exceeds expectations. Just a great pair of headphones, with so many tricks up its sleeve.
