    Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Dr. says "No more Headphones".... : (

    Neal Young as well as hundreds if not thousands of tinnitus sufferers keep listening and enjoying music. No I don’t use closed back headphones at loud volumes but I just bought a shamefully priced KEF speaker setup for my desktop and I still love music. Put in a White//pink noise machine or one...

    Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Dr. says "No more Headphones".... : (

    I appreciate your thoughts. I have an appt with an ENT on Thursday and I am sure he will send me to an audiologist. A couple of years back, I was listening with noise-canceling headphones all night and I was also getting into this hobby. I felt a slight tremor in my left ear, I suppose, from the...

    Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Dr. says "No more Headphones".... : (

    You left out stupidity. I had very occasional noticeable tinnitus, but it never seemed constant or I didn't notice it. I bought a Dragonfly Cobalt- like the Red or my ifi Go Bar wasn't enough and turned on Roon, which played at maximum volume and I thought my head was "going to explode"- I...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    I use both- the Go Bar for weight and the Gold Go Bar for sound quality. I would sy the improvement in sound in perhaps 10-15% if it can even be quantified. It just sound a bit more detailed. It depends on your source as well. It's a little better so if you ewant the best and can pay the...

    Campfire Audio Multiverse

    Quick question- I just tried the new cables, and the ear loops are very stiff. Do they loosen/soften up, or is that just the way it is? Thanks for your time.

    Campfire Audio Multiverse

    Thanks very much- I just ordered them. What do you think of the FH9? The FH7 & FH9 were on my radar for a while. I wound up with Moondrop Blessing 2 as a reboot into IEMs just for while I'm getting ready to sleep to wind down. I was into IEMs for a while until wireless became prevalent. My high...

    You are speaking of the LC-RD? Are they the cables you say are "very nice"?

    Campfire Audio Multiverse

    I bought the exact Solaris Mercury from that 78-piece lot. I love the sound, but the three cables are thin and uncomfortable around my ears after extended listening. The Solaris sounds spectacular. I can get that Fiio cable at Amazon to give it a test- would you recommend it? The marketing...

    Campfire - Solaris

    The version of the Solaris Mercury I purchased sounds terrific, but it isn't easy to compare the Stellia. They both are highly resolving. My question is back to the cables. I received three individual Silver Litz cables (2.5, 3.5, 4.4). I read on these pages that the Fiio LC-RD Pro upgrade...

    Campfire Audio Multiverse

    Congrats on this teriffic IEM! I was searching for a new Solaris 2020 which was totally sold out in my search. Then much to my surprise, I happily found the Solaris Mercury available and my new favorite dealer sold them to me for the price of the Solaris 2020. These are remarkable sounding...

    Campfire - Solaris

    I was a big Dunu booster about ten tears ago, starting with the DN1000 to the Titan 1 & 5 and too many subs $400 Dunu IEMS that I loved. I was looking for the SA* but couldn't find them. Wound up with the CA Solaris. Thanks for your input!

    Campfire - Solaris

    I ran the clears as my daily driver and didn't seriously consider IEMS as I didn't know how good they could sound. I didn't know about the "Multiverse" event, and I was looking for the best-sounding IEM most consistent with the Focal house sound. After months of reviews and YouTube videos, I...

    Campfire - Solaris

    I just bought a pair of the Solaris Mercury during the September Campfire Multiverse event. They are encased in mirror like chrome with s stainless steel spout. I am burning them in and they sound like the 2020 Solaris out of the box which I love May be putting a review together. My preferred...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    I haven't had bad results with my iPhone 14 Pro Max. I wouldn't call it a drain; more like a slow draw. Perhaps when your battery gets older, it may drain more quickly. For the most part, I use the Go Bar with my 2018 iPad Pro and Ipad Mini 6. I am amazed at how little power it seems to use. I...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    Received my cases for iFi Gold Bar and Go Bar. Took a bit of work. I had to order a couple of times to get the shipment to the states. Started Nov 2. What do you think?

    Comment by 'flippant1' on listing 'iFi Pro iCAN Sig + iPower Elite'

    Thanks- I appreciate your getting back to me. I love the utility of the RME. Do you think the iFi is overkill? Do I need it, or would you use your money elsewhere? I never have the volume on The RME Pro above -40 balanced with an adapter, but in forums I read the RME did not bring out the full...

    Comment by 'flippant1' on listing 'iFi Pro iCAN Sig + iPower Elite'

    Hi Sajit - I saw your review in which you said this was a broad combination with the Utopia. I have Utopia, Stellia, and LCD-5; I was looking to combine this or another power amp with the RME-ADI-2 Pro, acting as a preamp. I appreciate your reviews, and if I buy this, do you think it is a good...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    OK- For a good definition of an OTG cable- just Google it. "Polymathic" is correct that most USB-USB-C or USB-C-USB-C cables will work. The quality and character of that sound will differ. Some may give you distortion because an OTG cable has specs to meet the correct resistance. Preferably use...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    No - absolutely not. Any cable will not work. I will search my threads. I had the specs. There is another member who monitors this thread and I believe he has bought slightly longer cables but I will check and get back to you. He mentioned the length and brand of what worked. I know the short...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    I believe you will wind up happy. I’ve been on these forums awhile and everybody is usually complaining about additional cables & adapters or singing praises but yours is the first real serious problem I’ve seen. Occasionally it can get finicky with Tidal but no consistent problems. For the...

    iFi audio GO Bar - The Best Pocketable HiFi System, Bar None!

    The Go Bar should not sound poorly in any situation. If you are using the cables that came in the box and you don’t have any other cabling issues, - return or exchange. I have both a Gold Go Bar and standard Go Bar and use them in all kinds of situations with my iPad, iPhone, MacBook and Mac...

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I saw Bruce Springsteen at a small club called "The Bottom Line" in NY. The venue was about 200 people max. It was in June, the summer Born to Run came out. I took my Honda 450 to Manhattan to meet with a girl (woman) 19. I was in love. We waited outside in a line for about 6 hours to get in, a...
