    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Same case here, my right channel was gone suddenly. I asked the local distributor and he said there were number of users reported this issue. I wanna to report to Focal directly but I can't find neither email nor any contact point in their web. I don't expect a $1000 headphone will die suddenly...

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    It was so sad that the right cup of my ELEAR is suddenly dead. I listened with normal vol. and never drop it on the floor. After some days I haven't use it, the right cup became completely silent. Already swapped the cable and 100% the fault is come from the right cup. I have sent to the local...

      The CS4398 was a Multibit Delta sigma DAC, the topology is still delta sigma. Most of the time in the schiit related threads, the term "Multibit" are referring to Multibit R2R topology.

      Thank you so much for your report. I did have similar finding when I A/B the internal DAC to my previous DAC using ES9028 (Both are high performance Delta-Sigma DAC). I hardly find any difference when I flip input switch back and forth. I was very struggle to get a MB (Modi MB as my 1st...

    Did you try to do a AB test on the Mimby and internal dac ? I did try several dac which I think I can hear the difference when play one by one. However, when I try a blind test. The result was not as obvious as I thought.

      Agreed. That's why I got my jot with DAC first. Now I am very curious about how much improvement can I get for changing to Modi MB.

      Thank you for your advise. I am using foobar2000 on Win7 and I have  try a a few setting on the buffer size, either the default 1sec(I am not sure what is the default value, but should be more or less 1sec), 5 sec, or even up to the longest 30sec. It seems to be not related. Popping still...

    My current PC is running Win7 and if I am not using the ASIO as output, no popping heard. It only happen when I switched to ASIO output. By the way, I have a ASUS notebook running Win10 and just encountered the same problem as your link mentioned. I try to follow the instructions and the driver...

    I did a similar test but changing the subject of chord mojo to B&O hifi plus, which is running the ES9028. By flipping the input switch all the way up and down I can switch back and forth between the Jot internal DAC (AKM4990) and the ES9028. I really can not tell any difference... Maybe both...

    Would you mind telling me where to have this config changed?

    Yes, in fact the list price of jot is very competitive.  I have forgotten to mention I faced some difficulties during driver installation. I have D/L the Schiit_USB_Gen2_1_16.zip and followed the instruction for WIN7 installation. However, it always prompt me to re-plugin the Jot and after 3...

      ar... I am sorry for my poor presentations as some of you might getting me wrong. English is not my native language.   I have been waiting Jotunheim for quite a while, it has been low-stock or backordered since Nov, then I finally noticed it is in-stocked again at the end of Dec. I...

    Maybe there are some RF interference gone into your system. When you touch the chassic, the RF is bypass from your hand to ground so the noise disappeared. Try to put any cell phone away from the setup. Or turn the phone into flight mode to see if the noise can be improved before sending to RMA.

    I have been searching for the same cable for weeks. I am not sure whether I violate the forum rules if I post a direct link here. Go to google and search blue dragon cable. This is the cheapest balanced cable I found for ELEAR with one-click order with the following options: (but not cheap...

      I agreed the TRS 3.5mm plug in your 1st picture (E3.5GT1) will fits into both ELEAR and Beyer T1/T5。However, I don't think the stock cable from Beyer will fit for ELEAR. Allow me to borrow your pictures and please check the red circles I have made. The E3.5GT1 has a smaller diameter at the...

    This is true. I have planned to DIY a short cable and already aware about this issue, yet still bought a 3.5mm plug a little bit thicker than that hole at Elear side. Lucky I found a 3.5mm TRRS plug fits into the hole nicely. But need to solder all the unwanted pin to ground leaving the tip to...

    Looking forward to see your review on jot and mojo combined with Elear. Please keep me posted.   It is not that easy to get an aftermarket balanced cable for Elear. There is a black/blue dragon cable, you would better have a look on that but it is not cheap indeed. Not going to have a cable...

      Thank you so much for your comments. I have a more clear picture now and likely I will go for jot for my newly bought Elear. After all, I prefer a desktop amp rather than a portable amp.
