    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    I'm ok with any arrangement. Thanks! Another useful effort is probably to estimate our own 'Balanced Target FR curve' estimated for our own ears based on our measurement equipment. So we can estimate tonality deviation from our FR target. Just My 2 cents. This is my FR target 2019 for my...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    My R70x pads are worn out, getting replacement pad from AliExpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32812213550.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dByrU9B I haven't tested it yet. As how to replace it, just simply remove it and fit the new one. Maybe I don't understand your question.

    Audio Measurements on a Headfi Budget

    I started clueless as well when starting IEM measurement. If your objective is simply to check channels matching, what you need is a coupler that allow you to fit the IEM with same consistent distance to the microphone everytime you do measurement. As on the REW part, watch YouTube video and...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    Recently I bought Yxxxxx 16 cores cable for TFZ T2 during AE 11-11 sale. I bought it simply for the look as it looks nice and matching the TFZ T2 blue color. When I compared it with the stock cable, I didn't expect to hear any differences, but I think I did hear a slight differences between...

    Audio Measurements on a Headfi Budget

    The China generic IEC60318-4 I bought from AliExpress has been delivered last week. So far I've done quite a lot of measurement with it and quite happy with the consistency. Using small Silicone ear tips and proper insertion, I can get less than 0.1 dB level matching between insertions. That is...

I'm in Singapore (Asia) so just inform me when the ER2SE happen to land here in Singapore. I just bought generic 711 coupler complete set with (according to the seller)...

    The Fragrant Zither (TFZ) Reviews and Impressions Thread

    I tried both the demo unit and mine, I don't find them to be V shape. They do have extended sub bass and upper treble, and on my FR measurement they do fall into my preferred FR target. Most likely it is due to different recordings used to listen to T2. Most reviews that said different thing...

    The Fragrant Zither (TFZ) Reviews and Impressions Thread

    It is quite interesting if S2 Pro and Monica use the same driver, because their tuning are actually the opposite, mildly n shape and mildly v shape.

    The Fragrant Zither (TFZ) Reviews and Impressions Thread

    Recently i auditioned several TFZ: T2, S2 Pro, Monica, & King. After the audition i bought the T2 which to my ears sounds very balanced and lively which I like a lot. I was considering T2 and Monica as those 2 are the best sounding among the 4 models that I tried. But Monica significantly more...

    Burson Audio Fun (2w pc Class A Headphone Amp)

    Cool! So my output impedance measurement is not flawed. As for the Burson V6s probably not worth the trouble, thanks a lot for the offer! I will look around locally if any of my audiophile friends have them. I will check again the ripple noise of the power supply, but not able to supply more...

    Burson Audio Fun (2w pc Class A Headphone Amp)

    Unfortunately I don't have the Burson V6s and OPA1611. Ha ha ha... yes that's right not much fun anymore when the stock Op-Amp is already very good. By the way, could any of you measure the output impedance of FUN? I keep getting very low result on the output impedance which is great. But...

    Review by 'earfonia' on item 'Burson Audio Fun'

    Big thanks to Burson for providing me with the review sample of Burson FUN! Class A headphone amp with symmetrical circuitry is not rare, but Burson advertised that they implemented four sets of Max Current Power Supply (MCPS) that is claimed to be superior to traditional transformers for...

    Burson Audio Fun (2w pc Class A Headphone Amp)

    Received the Burson FUN a while ago, just started a brief Op-Amp rolling last night. Agree with some reviewers that the stock Op-Amp NJR 5534D doesn't seem to be a good match for FUN. Or at least doesn't show FUN full potential. OPA827 and OPA627 I tried last night both sounded better than NJR...

    CanJam Singapore 2019 Impressions Thread

    I would like to share my impressions from Canjam Singapore 2019, especially those IEMs and Headphones that were truly impressive to me. Unfortunately didn't try the Kumitate Focus due to long queue and forgot to test Hidition Violet as well. But I can visit Zeppelin in Singapore to try Hidition...

    iBasso DX120 pure DAP player. Balanced, single ended, line out and 2 micro SD slots. FW 2.9.21 now out!

    I don't see any differences on both frequency domain (audio analyzer) and time domain (square wave playback on oscilloscope) measurement. All sound mode look the same. I also couldn't hear any difference testing all the sound modes. I'm just guessing it is probably clocking algorithm, if there...

    iBasso DX120 pure DAP player. Balanced, single ended, line out and 2 micro SD slots. FW 2.9.21 now out!

    Noted with thanks Paul! I have amended my review and removed the comment about the easily scratched back surface. As for the filters, why all of them work fine in DAP mode, but in USB DAC mode only 2 filters work? In USB DAC mode only Slow filter and Super Slow filters work, but filter 1, 3...

    iBasso DX120 pure DAP player. Balanced, single ended, line out and 2 micro SD slots. FW 2.9.21 now out!

    Thanks! Unfortunately I have returned the DX120 to Zeppelin, so I don't have it with me now. For the demo unit that I reviewed, it seems there wasn't any plastic protector over the back side, but I will double check when I go to Zeppelin. Maybe it was early batch unit for demo? I'm not so sure...
