    FiiO M11-Android 7.0, 2.5/3.5/4.4 Powerful Output, Exynos 7872, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, 3GB RAM, WiFi, Two-way LDAC

    Yeah, it really sucks... We are here to share our opinions and impressions, it's not an iBasso/Fiio/A&K funpages. And I think when you compare iBasso with Fiio on iBasso thread, and write about some good Sony DAP in Fiio thread - it's wonderful, cause you can always learn something new.

    Yeah, it's really cool if you can go to your local store (or CamJam) and make direct comparison, forgetting about price and marketing hiss - only sound, only YOUR impressions :) The probles is that not every city has such store :) So that's why many people here are trying to make some sort of...

    I guess X7-II is considered to sound best for now (from FIIO), but can't say of course, didn't hear any of them. My question was about dx220 - m11 comparison, not about 'flagship' definition :)

    :) Usually 'flagship' is simiral to TOTL - Top of the line, the best product that company has at the moment.

    Would be great to hear any sound comparisons dx220 - M11. I doubt dx220 sound twice better, but it's a flagship anyway.

    Reply to review by 'blackyangell' on item 'FiiO M11'

    Thanks for a great review! You've mentioned you had IFI Micro iDSD. I'm listening to FH5 via iDSD now, and I really enjoy the sound, but I'd like to swap it with M11 to make a setup smaller/more portable. Can you help with some direct comparison iDSD - M11? iDSD has such cool features like...

    I don't have M11, but I tried to get MQA stream from Tidal on my mobile, connected to IFI iDSD. When I play some Tidal Master tracks (MQA) from Macbook, I can see clear confirmation from IFI (yellow led light) that it gets high res data to play. But when I play the same tracks from Androin...

    How do you do this? What settings in UAPP should I use to get full MQA unfold on Android without resampling? Thanks!

    Hah, I feel the same thing now comparing my new FH5 to Beyerdynamic Amiron :) FH5 costs 2.5 times less, but I can't definitely say they sound worse or less exciting to me. So much fun in such a small IEM. So now I'm considering about swapping IFI iDSD to M11 for more convenience, can't wait to...

    Hi guys! Quick question: while M11 doesn't support MQA, what will we actually hear listening to Tidal's Master tracks (which should be 24/96)? Will it be regular 16/44 or something else?

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    I've talked to Beyer's support, asking them to give me more info about Impacto - is it really powerful enough to drive 600ohms T1? They told me that it will be loud enough. But I didn't receive their answer about the quality of this loud sound - what about bass control, what about distortions on...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    Thanks for sharing your experience DChrls. I'm using iDSD Micro, and I'm happy with that pairing too. But I was considering Impacto as more transportable alternative.

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    Friends, did anyone try Amiron Home with Impacto dac/amp? https://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/impacto.html I'm curious if this tiny device can drive them with confidence.

    So, let's stop buying any headphones above, let's say, $500, for several years - maybe we will see price recession? :)

    Hifiman Ananda

    I personally can hear, than Ananda has more weight on lows, more balanced, and has wider soundstage, while Sundara is a little bit brighter and has less 'juice' overall.

    Yeah, headphones are like smartphones nowadays - new releases every 3 monthes, full of 'revolutionary' technologies every time :) So, you spent several monthes exploring a new model, reading reviews, asking questions on forums etc.., already going to buy it and.... BOOM!! Take a newer model...

    iFi audio Pro iDSD (Official) - NEW Firmware - MQA and more.

    Hi! I have a question to iFi Audio.. Just wondering - how does Wireless Playback Engine work for streaming? For example, I'm interested in listening to Deezer HiFi. Do I need to setup any applications on my Mac to manage playback? How can I select songs to listen etc? Thanks!

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    Yeah, this DAP seems to be a good choice, but unfortunately, it can't play Deezer Hi-Fi on it... I use mostly streaming in CD quality.

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    I use Amiron with iFi iDSD (not BL), and I'm thinking about upgrading my combo. An obviois option is to upgrade to BL, but will I get a real noticeable improvement? I'm limited to transportable gear only, can't use heavy desktop devices. Did you try Amiron on balanced connection? I can't find...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    Hi exhale, welcome to our Amiron's family! :) I've bought mine in April 2018 (in Greece), and the part number is 3799. As for unboxing - I didn't notice any dirt or anything like that. The box itself was in perfect condition too. The purchase was made in a physical store (not online), and they...

    Hi guys! I have a 1st gen. Micro iDSD (Silver), and I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm going to make some upgrade. I'm considering 2 options: 1. Upgrade to iDSD BL 2. Buy some good portable balanced AMP to pair with my current silver iDSD (want to try my 250ohms Beyers on balanced connection)...
