    FiiO EH3 NC - Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

    @misteral201103 Indeed someone could say that the EH3 NC are tuned to a consumer friendly sound signature, but this statement says is actually what? Aren't we all consumers? This doesn't describe anything in my opinion. Maybe we are spoiled with the marketing bla bla of SONY, BEATS, and BOSE and...

    FiiO EH3 NC - Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

    To answer your question right away, yes, you can have the EH3 NC 3.5 mm wired AND have ANC working! ....but: 1) You have to first switch the headphones on and then connect the 3.5mm wires. If you first hook the cans up with the wires, the EH3 NC won't swich on! 2) and this is just a first...

    FiiO EH3 NC- aptX/aptX Low Latency/LDAC/aptX HD,50 hours battery life,1000 hours standby time,Bluetooth 5.0,ADI noise cancelling technology,One-touch NFC,Large 45mm drivers

    Here is a screenshot I made yesterday from the FiiO Music App connected to my EH3 NC and it looks like these cans do support HWA!? Btw, they also support SBC of course, but it only shows up at the status page at the app when you deselect all of the above codec choices and hit the confirm...

    FiiO EH3 NC- aptX/aptX Low Latency/LDAC/aptX HD,50 hours battery life,1000 hours standby time,Bluetooth 5.0,ADI noise cancelling technology,One-touch NFC,Large 45mm drivers

    It's 30 dB ± 5 dB of ANC ...and as I just got them yesterday, it' quite OK so far! Not top notch, but really good, especially for this price. Look at my first impressions thread here in the forums if you want to know more.

    FiiO EH3 NC - Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

    FiiO will come out quite soon with their first approach on a full size wireless noise cancelling headphone. Since I personally am very interested in these cans because I'm in the market of buying my first wireless NC headphones, I did some research on them and this here is what I found so far...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    My DX90 (FW 2.0.5) also suffers from the -more or less random- 1 second pause/resume problem. I think it's mostly happening when I insert the micro SD card (SanDisk Ultra 64 GB) in the DX90 after copying new music onto the card. It's not a big deal since this isn't always happening. Anyway, it...

    NAD Viso HP50 : Another superb headphone from Paul Barton?

    Fantastic!  I, too enjoy my HP50 a lot atm. The headband design was also discussed here earlier. Frankly, I don't like it either, because sometimes it gets a little bit uncomfy at longer listening sessions. But due to the quite firm pressure of the cups you can find a fitting where the headband...

    @musicheaven: thanks for clearing that up. I did a quick read through the posted links about the ES9018xxx and the antialiasing filters. Seems, that it will be labor-intensive to tweak them for hardware manufacturers like iBasso and the likes. The only thing which gives me hope in that regard is...

    I just read in a whitepaper of ESS, that the SABRE32 Reference audio DAC series, especially the ES9018 features "Customizable filter characteristics which allow a user programmable filter for custom roll-off response". Here's the source (PDF)   Hmm...If I understand that correctly, this sounds...

    I'd really like to have three filters to choose from e.g. > "2.0.0 style" or mid roll-off > sharp roll-off > slow roll-off ...or even more variants to select from   IMO: on the one hand, the slow roll-off seems to be the better choice for everyday use. But on the other hand, there are...

    Hmm...I really have to bang the drum for the DX90 in regards to it's usability. OK, it's not perfect (what UI is??) at this stage but if you have a qiute decent folder structure and/or a good file-tagging, you won't have any troubles. So far my DX90 never froze or showed an odd behaviour^^  ...

    IMO the HP50 outperforms the B&W P5 easily...and besides, the HP50 plays actually in a class above...and is a circum aural design vs. a supra aural from the P5. A friend of mine has the P5 and tbh, they're fun to listen to...but that's it. The HP50 on the other hand has tighter, punchier low...

    I truly can confirm, the HP50 and DX90 are indeed a very good combination

    First I wouldn't generalize that 24/48 is "not worth the work" you put into ripping. There are albums that are just amazing in 24/48. On the other hand, if you do your own vinyl rips, I'd also suggest to set 24/96. This is IMO the sweetspot between resolution and filesize. You will be happy, I...

    @pauldgroot: Oh, what an interesting idea! ...I just started auditioning... There's really something about it...on very first listening I hear that the bass on my newly bought NAD Viso HP50 are reduced when i use the line out but the cans sound maybe more detailed!!??   Let's give it a try...

    Focal SPIRIT PROFESSIONAL Impressions thread

    Anyone around who can compare the NAD Viso HP50 with the FSP?   I just got the HP50 and they sound fabulous (no burn in yet^^) but the fit is really "odd". This rather flat design of the headband hurts after about 15-20 mins of wearing. I read here that some people complain that the fit of...

    Nicely done & congratz! Make sure you also try FW2.1...just for comparison^^   OK, I don't have the 2.18beta, but the 2.14beta and personally, I like the 2.1 a bit more when it comes to sq.   @Silverprout: nice album, ey!?

    Yes, I second that. That was kinda wicked to post it with a newly generated account..lol   Anyway, I hope James will push the RC of the firmware before the weekend *fingerscrossed*.

      Man, you nailed it! I completely have the same experience with my Sennheiser IE8...These IEM's pair amazingly with the DX90. Regarding the FW issues I also came across these "shortcomings"^^

    oO, what happened to this guy's very first posting, where he provided a DL link to the 2.18beta? This was just about one hour ago but somehow this post doesn't exist anymore...strangely^^
