    Grado Fan Club!

    I broke down and ordered the HF3. RIch Grado emailed me to let me know there were 2 left. I seriously doubt I'll be disappointed. I have a 225 now, but over the years I've had pretty much everything up the line up to RS-1, including HF-1 and HF-2.

    Does the wind cause the vents to make noise while outside?

    ISN Earphones impression thread. New ISN D02 carbon crystal dynamic!!

    I've read that it's 20 decibels. Been on the fence about the H40 for a while. Being able to use earphones for outdoor use is a factor. Is the isolation better or worse than BGVP DM7? DM7 seemed to have decent isolation, but the sound wasn't my cup of tea. Does the wind hit the vents and cause noise?

    Does putting tape over the vent holes improve isolation? Does it affect the sound adversely? Someone had previously said the H40 sounded more balanced.

    ONKYO DP-X1 | Dual Sabre Dacs | Balanced | Sabre BTL Amp | MQA | DSD 256 | Android 5 |

    Thanks. I was trying to heat the screen with a blow dryer, but trying to pry it myself I would have cracked it, so I stopped. I'll check with my local repair guy.

    I realize this post is a year old, but I could use help replacing the battery. I bought one on AliExpress, just need help with removing the screen safely. On a related note, I also bought a replacement battery for the Opus 1 and had success replacing it.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    The R6 Pro aluminum version is perfectly fine as a gym device. I use mine lifting and doing cardio, no problem. The stainless steel version is over 1/2 lb heavier I think that would be pushing it. I had a Cayin N5iiS previously which is about the same weight as the R6 Pro SS version and it was...

    There are no issues using a San Disk Extreme 1 TB memory card. Just an FYI.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    It seems he went strictly by measurements, which is laughable Edit: I know measurements are his focus, it's just one-dimensional.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    Anyone using a 1 TB card yet? I just ordered a San Disk Extreme 1 TB from Western Digital for $299. It should work, no?

    Cayin N5ii Android based Master Quality Digital Audio Player

    The N5iiS and N5ii work best as standalone players, IMO. Great SQ, build, storage capacity; but if you need WIfi/streaming features or DAC look elsewhere. Neither seems finished.

    Cayin N5ii Android based Master Quality Digital Audio Player

    Wow. It works like a charm in the DP-X1. I don't understand. I tried downloading the apk version of the Amazon Music app also, with the same results.

    Cayin N5ii Android based Master Quality Digital Audio Player

    I guess this would negate it on the N5iiS and N5ii: "Which Android devices support Amazon Music HD? Most Android devices released since 2014 can support HD/Ultra HD playback (up to 48kHz). Please ensure that your device is running on Android Lollipop, or later. At this time Amazon Music HD is...

    Cayin N5ii Android based Master Quality Digital Audio Player

    I put Amazon Music on my N5iiS and I can't get it to play. It continuously buffers. I can switch the output to Amazon Echo and that works. Go figure. I assume it can't access the internal DAC.

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I've tried both the white 680 ohm resistance filters and without filters at all, and neither sound as good as the stock brown 1000 ohm filters. The white filters do sound close to the stock, although the upper mids sound more emphasized and bass sounds tighter with less emphasis. With no filter...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    I know the consensus is that the new B models are for bassheads, but I think it's highly possible the b is for bluetooth cable.
