    Sony IER-M7 Impressions Thread

    @DynamicEars On second thought, why Sony has decided to put a nozzle filter in? Does it mean that the original sound coming out of the 4 BA drivers is somewhat "problematic"?? On the Sony webpage...

    Sony IER-M7 Impressions Thread

    Hello, good morning / evening, The M7 has 4 BA drivers whilst the M9 has 5. Does anyone know if the 5th one in M9 is the super tweeter driver that is absent in the M7, or the use / allocation of these 5 and 4 drivers are entirely diff?? Thanks .. Also I haven't read all the relevant posts on...

    64 Audio | VAC Pro - maintenance tool for all in-ear devices

    I will probably buy this VAC Pro as some of my IEMs don't have much "protection" between the drivers and the nozzles, i.e. exposed, so being able to use a tool and a brand that I trust would be quite essential given the prices of the IEMs in my collection. Just curious, as many here are...

    Recommendation for a DAC or AMP with "black" background ?

    The Phonitor 2 was designed to be use in studios as another reference and check to a mix / mastering to studio monitors and the 2 does an excellent job in this regard. My experience is that a true neutral flat reproduction system will give you a truly balanced reproduction if this is what you're...

    Recommendation for a DAC or AMP with "black" background ?

    I have the Phonitor 2 and yes its a wonderful piece of gear and background is relatively dark enough, I use RME ADI2-Pro FS to drive it and this DAC is also very clean and transparent. The overall resultant sound is of high quality, but I think there is still room to enhance the "dark...

    Recommendation for a DAC or AMP with "black" background ?

    I'm not sure in my case if this is predominantly to do with masking and dominant note although these 2 do have a bearing on enhanced sound refinements as a result of a black background. Agree that good power management makes a lot of diff. I've also done "experimental" setup thats uses ground...

    Recommendation for a DAC or AMP with "black" background ?

    Verbalizing sound is always a challenge! So when you say "dark/silent/black", are you also referring to some kind of sound purity/cleanliness, so much so that you could hear much more of the refinement of sound/music reproduced? If you are talking about such a perceptual listening experience...

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    You're welcome. The SQ of the M2 is "best" amongst the 3 DAPs (707/1Z/M2) out of the box but if portability and convenience is a must 707 would be the choice (assuming sticking to Sony of course), after all carrying around a $3.5K+ DAP outdoor does require extra care and attention ..

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    TBH, the SQ diff between 1Z and M2 to a degree depends on the sources, the genres, and the IEMs/HPs used. Say, the diff is much more noticeable when playing the "Blue-Coast-Collection-SACD Hybrid" album (CD tracks ripped to FLAC files) vs playing Diana Krall's Wallflower (Deluxe Edition) [48kHz...

    SONY NW-WM1Z M2 / WM1A M2

    I have the 707, WM1Z and WM1ZM2. Whilst the 707 in itself is already a good DAP:- small enough size/weight for true portability and a reasonably high level of SQ, but when it comes to pure sound quality the 1Z and the M2 are definitely better - soundstage/imaging, resolution and dynamics. I'm a...

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I have the u18t for quite a while now. To my ears its a fairly "technical" IEM meaning that it's more neutral, nuanced, good imaging and honest to the source. If your source has bass and good bass it will give you that. To some it may not be a very 'rich" sounding IEM and if that's the kind of...

    Review Tago Studio T3-01

    The T3-01 has been with me for around 2+ years and it is genuinely an unique sounding headphone, unlike the Grados that the T3-01's sound is not Grado-bright but with some kind of weight (vs thin sounding as in some mid-to-treble emphasised headphones) that makes it un-fatiguing to listen to for...

    SONY NW-ZX700

    I use an IEM that has a sensitivity of 121dB/mv, 38.5 ohm impedance and there is no hiss at all, the IEM is the EarSonics S-EM9. If I use the Kojo E-G together with the 707, the background is dead silent even with this high sensitivity IEM, and you can pick up the room reverberations from the...

    Yamaha YH-5000SE — a flagship from an orthodynamic headphones veteran!

    one must compare like with like, I'm referring to well executed live in a good acoustic hall vs well executed recording reproduced by a well set up headfi or 2-channel system, there is no point to compare a crapy live to a well made recording

    Of course there might be exception to all technological advances that there might exist some old products which could still be strong contender of the latest !!!

    Yamaha YH-5000SE — a flagship from an orthodynamic headphones veteran!

    Never mind the terms you prefers .. it boils down to if a track say has 10 salient sound/data points and your 1991 picks up say all 10 and are you saying that the 5000 say just picks up like 7?? If this is so it would be strange. What tracks are you listening to? If you can point out what...

    It can't be true, YH5000 SE compared to a year 1991 HP, and the 1991 wins ??? How come. I think it takes a lot really a lot to convince others that this is really the case! There is a whole thread on this Sony 1991 cans...
