    iFi audio ZEN CAN Signature 6XX / ZEN DAC Signature !!!

    Hi Mblain! I've gotten some initial thoughts jotted-down about the Zen Can Sig., so I thought I'd share them for anyone who is looking for real-world experiences with it. Also, I got another factor added: Now burning-in some HD-6xx that just arrived today so I can compare them to my HD-650 on...

    iFi audio ZEN CAN Signature 6XX / ZEN DAC Signature !!!

    It's like freaking Christmas today! So among other exciting things that arrived, the Drop Zen CAN Signature. Ultimately, I'm pitting my similar-price bracket amps against each other: Schiit Asgard vs DROP Cavalli LCX +SDAC vs SP200 vs DROP Zen DAC Signature. Then iFi-only: Drop Zen DAC...

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

    Great thoughts on the Pro iDSD ufospls2! I too have been playing with all the combinations, (Takes FOREVER!) and have had similar thoughts regarding the Pro iDSD vs the DEFINITE upgrade of the amp section in the Pro iCAN vs my beloved Micro iDSD and Micro iCAN units. Though I have...

    100% Baskingshark! I used to think that Westones, Shures, and Ultimate Ears from 15 or so years ago were the pinnacles of what iems could achieve, (Within reason for a regular working-stiff like myself.) and the current crop of KZ offerings bring much - if not more to the table for well less...

    iFi Audio xCAN Portable Headphone Amplifier I’ve taken longer with this review than I’ve taken with any other to date, and it’s for good reasons. (Though I’ve enjoyed the extended listening time because of it.) But first, for those of you who just want to know if I consider it a worthy buy...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    AMEN   I keep wanting an iem counterpart to my SZ2000s...  Still rockin' my OLD original VMODA Bassfreqs, but they've developed a left/right imbalance.  Sad, but it may finally be time...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    Welcome to HiFi living!  Home of the $50-$100 USB cable...  ;-)   If it makes you feel any better, The T1.2 was at the $1000 dollar mark back when I bought mine....  Even if you spend $100 on a cable, you're STILL over $400 ahead of me!

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    Sounds like it's time to ring-up Schiit and let them take a look at it.

    You Sir, are evil, and thus, must be destroyed. Now I have to try these myself! You've piqued my curiosity. Thanks for the heads-up. :thumbsup:

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Just to restate, including the stock and HM5 pads mentioned, (HM5s were Uber-comfy!) the pads scavenged from the JVC HA-M55X are still to me, THE BEST for SZ-2K bass slam. They are as a bonus, also more comfortable than the stock pads to boot!

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    I have different AKGs,but I have never heard a combination with any of my components or headphones that made me feel as you describe. I'd start with. A different set of headphones first, just to be sure it isn't a "bad combo" between the two. (It reads like the only permutations left from what...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    The JVC HAM55x ear pads are my favorites with my SZ2000 headphones. Decent comfort, but maximum bass SLAM.

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    To be honest, I have heard better. But not by much, and certainly no where as easily or inexpensively as I've gotten top performance out of the Beyer T1.2s.... It takes a more expensive headphone, driven by higher-end components in order to out do the T1.2s connected to a decent, inexpensive...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    MY BAD! People start talking SZ1/2K and I get all happy. I just jumped the gun this time around... Everything I said is still valid though, if you have SZs, feed them power and they will rock your world. If you want them, GET THEM! AMP THEM, "PAD" THEM, EQ THEM, & then prepare to be...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    I second the move to replace the stock pads!  I immediately replaced mine with JVC HAM55X pads pulled from an open box pair for less than $20 USD.  Amazon-dot-com has USED-Like New headphones today for $19.00 shipping via Amazon PRIME ($0 cost 2nd-day shipping if you are a PRIME member.)  They...

    Oooooo.....  You Sir, are EVIL, and must be destroyed!  For shame Doc!  Showing me "shiney-things" like this that I will HAVE to buy now!  (Easily one if the cheapest recommendations I've ever seen here!)  LOL   Thank you very much!

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Do you know what a shame is? It's that I spent WAY too much money on a set of ASTRO 40 headsets that don't sound any better for gaming than my SZ-2000s do. (If only they had an attachable Boom Mike option....). sZ-2000s kill straight-up when it comes to 3D audio, and the explosions will make you...

    Review by 'knorris908' on item 'iFi Micro-iCAN Headphone Amplifier, Special Edition'

    Disclaimer:  I was loaned the iFi iCAN SE so that I could have more audio equipment samples to evaluate the iFi iTube, & iPurifier 2 with.  Long after I completed my reviews of those components, I have continued to enjoy using the iCAN SE on a daily basis, and am now writing-up my experience...

    knorris908 Today at 6:01 amDelete Fit/comfort being subjective not only by taste, but also by biology is in my experience unavoidable. Good point about the edge of the metal securing segment. Hopefully that can be a "silent enhancement" in the next run of DUNUs, and made available as a service...

    Part 1 - TORTURE TEST   So, have you ever heard the noise from an old laptop's hard drive spinning-up, or the electronic "chirp" of your mouse cursor moving across your screen during music playback??  Chances are that if you're using a half-way decent PC/MAC from last 10 years or so, that you...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    +1   This, the OPPO HA-1, and the iFi iCAN PRO are the main reasons why I am getting balanced cables for my T1 v2s...  Haven't decided on getting ones for the HD-650 or HD-800 yet, but I may as well.
