    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    I don't have the M6 yet, though I'm eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Regarding the Samaung and Sandisk SD Card updating issue, could it possibly be due to the size of the SD card? Older android devices used to have problems indexing and accessing SD cards larger than 64gb and 128gb, and higher...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Oh wow, thanks for the offer I'll think about it! I have an officemate who might be interested, so I've asked him if he might want it as well. Hmmn, personally though, I would prefer brighter sounding HP over darker ones so I guess that means I probably should go for the Sundara. I'll mull over...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    Thanks! It was attached to a diy earbud I bought locally that I didn't like the sound of. Since I was never going to use the bud, and I already broke it when I tried opening the shell (I didn't know MX500 shells had glue and I broke the driver when I heated the shell in my attempts to open it)...

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    So I got my MH755 this morning, and after seeing how short the cable was, I went through with my plan to recable it. After getting the needed materials, I attempted to do it and with extremely little experience, I was able to repurpose an earbud I broke to be put on one of the MH755...

    They are really good for the price. I'd be happy if they released the exact same thing but with a replaceable cable. The cable is the only downside imo, as it is extremely microphonic.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Shouldn't have affected them much, as CNY only gave the Philippines a single day of holiday (Feb 5). They've been very active in the local groups already, so it's possible that they're just not as interested in the international scene because they're too bust dealing with local requests. There...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Don't worry, you lucked out and saved some money. DP100, Panda PK2, SL 1.0 are all better buds. The Tuneout All In SE I ordered was lauded to be balanced and mid centric, but apparently that means drowning out the rest of the sound with midbass.

    I've used Spinfit CP 145 (4.5mm), New Bee Foam Tips (4.9mm), Final E Tips (tightest fit, so I assume smaller than Spinfits) on my CCA C10 before. I forgot if I've tried the KZ Whirlwind tips, but that one might have been way too wide.

    Hmmn, I think "burn-in" might help indeed, but it would be nice to figure out what your thoughts on the KP are after a week. I remember feeling that the KP could use a little bit more sparkle when I was first using it, prior to "giving it to my girlfriend. Fast forward a few weeks, and I don't...

    BEST Sub-100$ BUDGET EARPHONES - Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    Listening to it right now with Wagakki Band and Baby Metal (remastered). Nothing pops up as spikes for me, and sibilance only on the most sibilant tracks (ssss rather than sshh). Treble feels more more elevated than bass, but is still able to give me that sense of 'balanced' sound so it...

    I will in a few days, but with mt current set of iems and with all of them being very competitive I'm having a hard time to distinguish quality in clarity and can only notice via direct comparison the nuances between them. Either the Crescent is much harder to drive than the ****, or the **** is...

    I have the same problem! Haha, I just received my **** and Crescent last night, and I tried to do a short listen between them and all I can say for sure is that I like both of them. I put my **** on a 6 core cable from the banned brand (only mmcx I had lyjng around that was straight down) and left...

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    I'm just new to the hobby so I haven't yet explored many different parts of the hobby. The CCA C10 is at 32 ohm though and I was also able to detect the hiss at home. Haha, trying to look on the brightside, if I do end up keeping the xDSD, I'll take it as a sign to buy some headphones like the...

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    Nope, it is not charging, it's not connected to anything except bluetooth, and the hiss is still there when I disconnect it from bluetooth. Turning it off and on causes the hiss to disappear... At least until I plug it into a source (i.e. my phone via OTG or by bluetooth) then the hiss...

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    So I ended up buying it after demoing the unit at the shop. Listening to it right now, and there is a very noticeable hiss on my iem (BGVP DMG, 28 ohm, 108 sensitivity) that wasn't there on the demo unit. Does this require burn in? I am using the Ifi OTG cable to connect it to my phone (Huawei...

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    Wow, that's a pretty cool setup! I was just looking at the xDSD recently as I'm waiting for the FiiO M6 to drop by our shores and I was thinking that I might do something like that for when I don't mind the bulk. Could you do a short compare between the sound differences between using the xDSD...

    Same phone, Mate 20 Pro. I use the Sonata HD as well, just remember to flash it to Music D if you are going to use 24/96 files. That'll remove microphone usage, but pause and play button will still work.

    Haha, that's true, and I really am enjoying the F300 a lot. I shall cease my attempts as I think this is enough for normal listening purposes (at least normal in my case) to see how easily this iem gets distortion(spoiler, they aren't easily distorted), and I don't want to accidentally break...

    Okie, I've been trying to see if I can replicate the distortion, but I think my current solution (Hidizs Sonata HD) is not able to output enough power. I tried to fudge up the sound as well by using my phones built in equalizer to bump up the volume on the lower frequencies to as loud as my ears...

    Moondrop Nameless, in some stores it's the same price as the Moondrop Crescent. It's the cheapest in their earbud line, and in all honesty, it's actually pretty good when I did a short listen. If I don't need to return it, I'll probably use it for a few days and post my impressions here...

    I'll check to see if it changes by tomorrow. :) I'm kinda iffy about saying it's lacking bass, as aside from the midbass, it doesn't seem to be really recessed as it's there. I think the closest comparison I have for it is the one I see in the Moondrop thread with regards to Kanas vs Kanas Pro...
