    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    As a basshead, I'm interested in it. If that 12mm is anything like the one in the Legatos, then it can move some serious air. Personally, I'd like to see a dynamic for sub-bass, planar for bass to lower treble and EST for treble.

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Ah that makes a lot of sense because my right ear has always produced more wax than the other. Maybe I'll try tuning these without the filter installed to rule that out for good.

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Well, turns out it's the IEMs. For whatever reason, after listening to them (Legato) for a little while, the right channel gets quiet. I picked up another pair, and while it was fine for a couple days, it now does the same thing. If I stop using them for a little while, the problem goes away...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    I recently upgraded from the iBasso DC04 Pro to the Topping D5 for my Legatos. Definitely cleaner sounding with improved imaging. The right channel on the iBasso got quiet after about 10min, so it's a dud. It got pretty hot during usage, so I guess that was the culprit. Thus, the Topping D5...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Spiral dots (JVC EPFX10) on the Legato are nice, some favorable tradeoffs. They sound more spacious, and they're also less fatiguing. They aren't as flared out as stock and the material is softer and more flexible as well. This allows for deeper insertion and better comfort. The bass sounds...

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l_nB3jSGtf0yADYhHzxiteW97wynnJBB/view?usp=drivesdk Google drive link to wavelet eq. Kinda funky looking, but it sounds pretty good to me. Second eq for when the bass gets too bloated in some songs. I tried some comply 400 tips yesterday, and they screwed up...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Basshead/soundstage-head here. I've been running 7Hz Legato with a custom wavelet eq that I made along with an ibasso dc04 pro going to my phone for a few months. Balanced silver plated copper 16 core cable. Stock, the tonality isn't really my taste, but the 12mm+6mm responds very well to eq...

    Looking for Bluetooth DAC

    I like that option a lot more. Didn't know they made those. Done, thanks!

    Looking for Bluetooth DAC

    Currently using a modius which I'm satisfied with, but I'd like BT for my phone. I thought about getting a USB switch and cables to make it work, but I'd prefer wireless, so here we are. Requirements: XLR outputs Bluetooth Schiit Modius or better sound quality Around $400 give or take Thanks...

    Sony MH750/755 upgrade path?

    Thanks for the recommendations so far. I'm also looking for a single driver IEM, be it dynamic or planar. I'm not really wanting to mess with multi-driver configurations due to increased power requirements and lower sensitivity - not good for driving from a weak phone amp.

    Sony MH750/755 upgrade path?

    So, I had to put my Sony phone through RMA and I got one of these back out of luck. I knew nothing about them prior, and I was like what? How do these sound so good. I ended up returning a pair of Raptgo Hook-Xs that I recently bought because of them. Wavelet app to neutralize it and then add a...

    Looking for IEM under $500 for phone

    Thanks for those two great resources! Looks like the Variations is the one to get, and it's also easier to drive than the Monarch which will give me more volume overhead on the phone. Crinacle also said good things about it in his latest review.

    How would the Variations compare to the Thieaudio Monarch?

    Looking for IEM under $500 for phone

    I was looking at the Dusk and the recent Variations by Moondrop. The Variations looks pretty interesting.

    Looking for IEM under $500 for phone

    Will be my dedicated IEMs for my phone. I like a warm sound with a large soundstage. Dynamic driver preferred. I primarily listen to lofi and its analogs, so something that has some kick in the bass is strongly desired (basshead). I know my way around equalizers to balance the resonances and...

    Looking for a niche DAC

    I can't find anything like this. Here's what I'm looking for:   Integrated 2 channel speaker amp (doesn't have to be super powerful- 40-50w is perfectly fine) Balanced DAC with XLR outputs (I use monitors and want to be able to use XLR outputs to connect them to the DAC) Said DAC needs...

    Mini review: HD800 vs. K7XX vs. Frankenheiser LCD-K1000

    Just keep in mind that you might be doing a lot of tweaking to get them to sound right. Putting speakers in a design like mine is sorta like putting a -8dB high-shelf filter on them, along with some newfound resonances and other peculiarities. I'm using 4 25ohm resistors through all wires to cut...

    I'd be interested to see any before\after measurements of these modifications on this dac.

    Pro700 MKII Bass Mod

    Oooh...it's been a while. I think I unscrewed the baffle, latched the earpads on the plastic lip, put some tape around it and screwed the baffle back onto the headphone frame.

    Carolina CanFEST 5 Head Fi Meet, March 19, Charlotte, NC

    Wilmington is a definite no-go for me. I can probably get to Charlotte in about an hour and some change. Wilmington is over twice that.

    Carolina CanFEST 5 Head Fi Meet, March 19, Charlotte, NC

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to come, but if I am able, I'll be bringing in a special pair of headphones I made along with the Emotiva Mini-X A100 and an SMSL M8.
