    Looking for a DAP between USD $750-1000

    The last time I visited Head-Fi, the newest DAPs I can remember were the iBasso DX80 and FiiO X7. I am completely out of the current loop and overwhelmed by new options, to say the least. I am looking to buy a new DAP to use as a source for my home theater stereo and on-the-go listening. I need...

    It's been a few years. What are the current "best" IEMs for approximately USD $70?

    My 18-year-old daughter wants a new pair of IEMs for music, TV, etc. She's not an audiophile but would like something nicer than her standard Skull Candy fare. At that price range, the last killer earbud I know of is the HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline. Are there other recommendations I wouldn't have...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    Guys, I can't find the original FLC8 stock cable on Ali or LMUE and I really want an inexpensive (< $50), functional cable that will not stretch my FLC8S' sockets or jack up my sound. I'm not even going to consider stuff like Moon Audio because I'd just as soon buy an entire pair of IEMs for the...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    So is the reigning solution for cable frustrations to pick up the original FLC8 cable, instead; or are there any inexpensive aftermarket options currently available? I'm not a believer in cables fundamentally altering sound signatures or anything like that. I don't want a $7,000 liquid crystal...

    The discovery thread!

    Well, SWIII it is. Jim wouldn't trade the DZ7 for the QT5s; which, on one hand, sounds perfectly fair. But under the specific circumstances I'm in, if I were him I would have extended that olive branch to my customer. After all, I've already lost $80 in unrecoverable shipping costs for an IEM he...

    And I would have no way of measuring that accurately. Is there any way to be positive based on the packaging or something?

    The discovery thread!

      Based on what the two of you are saying I might skip the SWIII, as I am treble sensitive and I hate sibilance. Even a little bit of it irritates me; god forbid it should be exaggerated.   I'm crossing my fingers and hoping Jim will trade me a pair of DZ7 because at this rate I have no...

    Zero Audio ZH-DWX10 DUOZA dual dynamic driver iem

    I've never felt like the Duozas had any weak points, per se, in terms of build quality. The housings are massive and bulletproof and the cord is my absolute favorite out of my entire IEM collection. I've never had any concerns about the strain reliefs, either; but yeah, at this point I think...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    I think for me the solution will be either to simply never remove the red sub-filter (which I love and prefer), or to very rarely do so. I've found that the sub-filter is very difficult to replace with tips and the nozzle inserted, as they force the edge of my rather large fingers away from the...

    Zero Audio ZH-DWX10 DUOZA dual dynamic driver iem

    I don't know if anyone will read this, but I have a neat story to tell.   The other day I noticed one of my pairs of IEM were missing: I couldn't find my Duozas anywhere. I love them; they're important to me. I searched everywhere at home, in both of our cars, etc. Gone. Then, today, I pulled...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    Sorry, it wasn't a question. I'd just skimmed the thread and seen this posted 2 weeks and 6 days ago:     Since then, nearly three weeks ago, I haven't seen you post here. I guess I was worried that even iBasso had sort of abandoned the thread. Evidently not. Sorry for the confusion.

    No impressions yet re: the new firmware? No Paul?   I'm confused. Tell me the DX90 thread isn't dying out just because the 80 has launched. They're both incredible DAPs.

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    Oh my.   So after my first pair of FLC8S blew a gasket (literally) I decided on a whim to jump on the QT5 hype train, which derailed brutally, wounding nearly everyone aboard. Immense buyer's remorse set in immediately, and was exacerbated by $80 I lost on shipping & handling charges—money I...

    ZhiYin QT5 4BA + 1DD Impressions Thread

    I don't listen through my phone; however, it is a Samsung Note 4. I own three DAPs: FiiO X1 (rarely used), iBasso DX80 (my current bread 'n' butter), and an iBasso DX90 (for when the DX80 is charging).

    ZhiYin QT5 4BA + 1DD Impressions Thread

    It makes me sad to see that iBasso has refused to add true PEQ to their DAPs, because they're all I own and multi-band EQ is a **** substitute. It'll be nearly impossible to adjust these things with any real specificity, should I feel the need.

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    After my FLC8S were found to be defective I read several reviews of the QT5 and used my refund to swap brands. They will arrive by end if day tomorrow and I'll post my thoughts by next Tuesday. What I had initially read was incredibly positive. Now Brooko has me scared. Why the hell couldn't my...

      If you're willing to share a download link with me, I'll gladly try it.   I haven't had the chance to A/B your firmware yet. Life has been complicated lately; however, I intend to get around to it very soon. Thanks again.

    iBasso DX80 . . impressions and reviews. . and discussion NEW FW: 1.6.0 ** link . . 1st page . . .

    Sadly, the Titan 1 and I never really became good friends. By my estimation it was overhyped by about 6,000%, as I find it to be overly bright and fatiguing and not to have any particular stand-out qualities that other 'phones can't replicate or outclass. I've used the Titans once in something...

    I copied your email address directly out of your forum post and re-sent the pictures. If that doesn't work can I attach them directly to a PM here on Head-Fi? EDIT: @flcforrestwei Sadly, the fix you sent me didn't work. The rubber valve tore instead of coming back out properly. Now the IEMs...

    So after about one week with my DX80 I've fallen completely head-over-heels in love with it. I'm still rocking FW 1.3.3 because I wanted extensive experience with that before I began flirting with alternate versions--especially if they newest might introduce bugs. My initial impressions are...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    So I've found a defect in my FLC8S that is clearly responsible for my ULF filters popping out of the left monitor. I've lost two today alone, one of which I was unable to find and is now gone for good. If you look closely at the ports next to the nozzles you will see that they have rubber...

    FLC Technology FLC8 and FLC8s Impressions Thread

    One more thing to watch out for: while tip rolling the other day I had one of the ULF plugs (the tiniest, of course) pop out of the IEM and go rolling across my counter. Had I been doing this anywhere else or not paying complete attention, I might have lost it forever. I recommend checking all...
