    THE WATERCOOLER HEADPHONE EDITION – Headphones, Amps, DACs, and desktop/home audio related – a freewheeling discussion of gear, impressions, music, and musings.

    I really need to spend more time with the Meze lineup. I heard the Elite last canjam and enjoyed it for the brief time they were on my head. Hard to make a solid judgment while listening on the showroom floor, though. Really want to hear the Empyrean II and the Elite again to compare them...

    Those thiefs! You gotta watch out for that veterans guy… shifty… hahaha Met/chatted with him briefly at the Rosson meet up back in 2022 (?).

    Definitely need to wear a name tag for sure! Those personalized wooden ones I keep seeing in the OG WC thread are fantastic!

    Canpur Audio - Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Question for you experienced Canpur or CP622B folks— there’s a vent on the back (upper portion) of the IEM, is this supposed to be open or covered by your ear? Does this have to do with the BCD driver and should the vent be “venting” at/touching your ear? Or is it supposed to be kept open to...

    Arctic Cables Discussion Thread

    The Opera is fantastic with the Susvara. I have the Talos v2 and got the Opera. I ended up only using the Opera and then getting the Talos reterminated for the Atrium. I’ll be getting the Euphoria soon (not sure exactly when, but soon), so I’ll be able to compare that to the Opera.

    HiFiMan Susvara

    You might also be able to Op-Amp roll with the Burson to help alleviate the treble sensitivity. Just another possible and relatively cheap solution.

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Susvara is pretty neutral, so there are certainly other HP that are even sharper up top. That being said, chain dependency can definitely help. A tube amp certainly can help. I’m not familiar with your Merason DAC, but DAC’s certainly can also reduce the bite from the treble. EQ even could...

    To be fair, every reviewer is not created equal. I like Sandu’s reviews overall. Don’t always agree, but he is pretty thoughtful and thorough. There certainly are other reviewers who don’t do a great job, but still get paid for it, too. I don’t put a ton of stock into many reviewers, but...

    Holo Audio May DAC Speculation

    That’s so great to hear about the Envy. I know it’s a real contender, but being transformed because of the May, that’s awesome! I agree, the WA23 sounds great with practically everything that I’ve connected to it, both up-chain and down-chain. I really, really enjoy the May with the WA23, too!

    Holo Audio May DAC Speculation

    Awesome! I forget if you already mentioned this, so apologies if you did, but how do you like the May with the WA23?

    Definitely would love to! Actually moving back to Orange County in a few weeks, but still not too far. At the very least, come up for CanJam SoCal!

    Selling my Elysian Annihilator 2023 Titanium version. I am the second owner, bought from a head-fi member, of these and have had these for just about a month myself. They are in great condition. Absolutely nothing wrong with these amazing IEMs. I am just looking to go in a different...

    I am using a PS Audio Regenerator. When I switched from the Audioquest Niagara 1200 to the PP3, noise floor for the WA23 went down. General electrical/mechanical noise/hum reduction was quite apparent. So that’s to say my power from the wall is pretty noisy where a regenerator is actually...

    Thank you! I really love the look of the Atrium, in general, but this stabilized pair certainly won my heart. Got lucky when a fellow head-fier listed them on the classified! Thank you!!

    IEMs have been consuming me a ton lately, but this is still home base for me. Hasn’t gotten as much love lately, but man do I still love this combination:

    HiBy RS8 flagship Darwin R2R Android DAP -- Class A -- news and impressions thread

    Similarly, I was listening to Tidal, then jumped to Youtube to watch something. I came back to Tidal and started my music again and no sound/music was output. I think I had to close the Tidal app and open it again? This has happened a couple times — a minor annoyance, but an annoyance...

    In it to win it! Oh wait… not what this thread is for. I split my time between IEMs and HPs, so I’m looking forward to this thread growing, too!

    I actually am finding that agree with this, BA bass with BC, except with the Canpur CP622B. BA bass never bothered me as much as some per se, but dynamic is definitely really hard to beat.

    Canpur Audio - Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I am currently running the EA Fusion1 instead of the stock Socrates and I really like it. The Socrates is a good cable, but as was mentioned, I there are better options for bringing out the resolution capabilities of the Canpur. The Socrates is warm and full-bodied, though, if you are wanting...
