    Earsonics EM 10

    Still I can hardly justify that for a regular person like me. I felt sound improvement on EM10 with added external dac/amp, but nothing when compared 20$ and 200$ cables. Even with amping I was failing to guess which is wired and which is "lower" quality bluetooth amp. Personally it seems that...

    Earsonics EM 10

    At the beginning I was trying to use it with my phone and felt a bit disappointed, but once I've added portable dac/amp things opened up. For sure my closed backs are no match in SQ against EM10. Music is way more detailed and melodic on EM10, but I still miss that tight bass sometimes that my...

    Earsonics EM 10

    But how much out of head experience there is with IEMs ? I mean i tested many cheap gizmos and EM10 and all of them had more or less similar soundstage. Some seem a bit larger maybe because of different bass response, but none came close to my intimate sounding over ear headphones where sound...

    Earsonics EM 10

    I believe many of these reviews/reviewers are very biased, especially on highly priced products. Through reviews I read that earsonics purple IEM is superior to nearly 2x priced EM10, which would be weird pricing model from the same company. For me the only thing that is missed is how the bass...

    URBANFUN YBF-ISS014 Impressions thread

    The base for such priced IEM is phenomenal, yes DD base can be easily tuned to high quality bass, but here it’s even close call to my portable planar hp. I just couldn’t get through their higher mid/low-high frequencies. Sharp with too much attack and a bit dry sounding, there is not enough air...

    Earsonics EM 10

    I don’t think it’s dirt, I’ve re-shelled EM10 and sockets where replaced. It’s constant distortion if I push volume bar to a decent amount, it reminds me the sound when the speakers has ripped bass woofer, but it happens across all frequencies. Low volumes sounds ok’ish but still doesn’t have...

    Earsonics EM 10

    Thanks, hopefully it's fixable. I've contacted earsonics as I really want to get back to EM10 sound. Re-shelling was done and everything was all right for a month maybe. Can it be that these BA drivers have a short life span ? Maybe EM10 are very sensitive cIEM's and somehow I could damage...

    Earsonics EM 10

    Maybe someone experienced similar issue. My right side of EM10 got broken somehow....it plays more quietly and if I crank up the volume it's starts burping. Does anyone know if such issue is fixable or it's a game over for me ;/

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I agree let's not go off-topic, but BT itself is slow, this +HS is basically Wifi hidden under BT and uses IEEE 802.11. AAC is very well done on iOS and I can't sense any difference with wired dac/amp. Only disadvantage is that my iphone starts lagging when I use IEMs over BT dac/amp and...

    correction no dedicated video protocols over BT due to its nature and limitations :)

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Your link has nothing to do with streaming video/audio and this magical 24mbit/s is not over the bluetooth. Different purpose and different protocols are being used, you should be aware of such in software dev. Streaming audio via BT doesn't have good throughput, no protocols are available for...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    This is the link of what bluetooth is “capable” off.. As I said in BT connectivity numbers doesn’t have much in common with real-life experience. Better show me an app/phone that is capable to transmit video over BT. Ok if not found at least give me a codec which transmits video over BT :) Large...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I’m skeptical on such tests. How do they decide through which bitrate music is being transmitted ? Software layer is VERY important here and how it deals in unstable connection, lot's of calculation needs to be done on both ends. Data needs to be compressed to some degree when loss happens and...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Honestly I've spent all day trying to spot the difference and couldn't. Seems that soon cables will be the thing of the past and needed only if additional amping is required. I was so skeptical with all that bluetooth SQ while passing the data, but now I don't see any reason to go back to cabled...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Is there any audible SQ difference when passing data with bluetooth or cables ? I've just received portable bluetooth dac/amp and honestly if I'm matching it against my wired S1 without any EQ filters I can't tell any difference between them from any of my HP. I'm not even using their highest...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Finally my BT Shanling UP4 have arrived and I was comparing it against S1 today using Earsonics EM10 and oppo pm3 hp. Honestly I was surprised with the quality that UP4 is able to push over bluetooth. Biggest S1 advantage over UP4 is EQ presets, but UP4 wins easily in portability/power. My ears...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Well for iphone users be aware that Lotoo S1 will have background noise/EMI if you will use mobile data. For me it makes S1 unlistenable. With WIFI only S1 is nearly silent, plane mode dead silent. I've ordered EMI shielding tape+wooaudio cable, will try to shield an inner shell of S1 and see...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    I’ve ordered wooaudio lighting to usb-c cable. The interference with iphone7 and my cIEM EM10 is too loud to be honest...I hope this cable will fix it, if not :/

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I do not see any issues with my old HP and I still mainly lean to them even after many purchases. Someone said that because of long-term and excessive listening through the same HP I've got a "brain burn in" and now it's hard to quickly appreciate different sound. Curiosity of trying new stuff...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    My old pm3 holds it's test of time. I get easily drawn into music with them and they are the reason why many times I had to go to work with little sleep. Maybe I haven't heard true high end sound, but am I missing a lot ? I've seen headphones going to ridiculous prices and needing a proper...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Totally agree that you can EQ things to greatly increase SQ of HP, but for regular person like me, simply can't be bothered. Even when buying audio gear, the sound that excites me most at the shop, I find it later hard to listen for long sessions. Can't make correct, quick decisions and need...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    HD650 didn I might not be good with describing sound, but for me my pm-3 bass was tight, more controlled, faster and created more air pressure maybe as it is closed back. My colleague was convinced that he can emulate this, but whole day spend and all he could do is to bring hd650 to more...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Bet there are lots of music based for such low frequencies especially in electronic. I don't believe that EQ is a holy grail unless I will see it, but so far whole days effort didn't brought dynamic headphone bass sounding close to planar. Yes PM-2 is a lower class sibling of PM-1. I'm...

    With balanced output I get too much interference with phone. Especially when my hand is close to it :/
