    EarMen Sparrow

    Camera connection kit works, pretty sure the Lotoo does on its own as well. However! I know for a fact that this Lightning to USB-C works: € 12,26 | Lightning Naar Type-C Otg Kabel Voor Shanling M2X M5s Up4 M0, Xd-05 Plus, NX4 Ds, fiio BTR5 3 Iphone 11 Xs Max, Xr, Xs 8Plus, Ipad Pro...

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    Time for some newsletter sign up I guess. Thanks for the fast/clear answer.

    EarMen Sparrow

    I agree with you regarding the sound, and also did the firmware update. But STILL it was picking up data sound or phone signals all around the place randomly when on a stroll or even at home connected in various ways to an iPhone 11.

    So you mean the Earmen TR-Amp or Fiio BTR5?

    EarMen Sparrow

    That’s interesting either way, any info (good or bad) should be valuable for Earmen developers. I use an iPhone 11, tried it with both camera USB adapter and a Meenova usb c to lightning, walking around through my city in the Netherlands. For what it’s worth.

    EarMen Sparrow

    I have owned the Earmen Sparrow and still own the BTR5. I loved the Sparrow sound and size wise, didn’t drain my iPhone 11 battery, works with certain lightning/usb-C cables, even had a leather cover made. BUT! The Sparrow was picking up signals from data, just like cellphones used to do. First...

    I can’t recall what he’s saying in that gif. Please enlighten me before it drives me nuts.

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    I like that! With linear acoustics tailored to extended waiting sessions and not so smooth, gratifying shipping performance, the HD 560S was crafted for the patient audio enthusiast.

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    I wouldn’t get hyped too much, as sound is a very personal matter. Pre-orders can be a bitch. That’s the same reason why I don’t pre-order an Xbox Series X. I usually verify with an online shop if they have stock by just calling them, then I order. Can’t trust online stock counts either.

    I believe so too. I wouldn’t call the Mounties just yet, kgb3366.

    EarMen TR-Amp

    What update was that? I did do a firmware update once that could be found on their website. I did inform the shop I bought it from, and they said they would look into it. The problem is that it’s not something you can test, it comes and goes. The only way is listening and walking around or sit...

    EarMen TR-Amp

    Initially I thought it was the cable, but after trying different cables and IEM combinations I was starting to worry. Next to that I have walked around with a Fiio BTR5 in Bluetooth and wired mode, never had that issue either. I don’t know how to accurately describe it, but it’s the same sound...

    EarMen TR-Amp

    I loved the Earmen Sparrow sound- and size-wise, but sent it back due to the fact it was picking up data noise as I walked down the street. This would become extremely clear when you’d be in between songs. If that wasn’t the case the Sparrow would have been a very much loved mobile dac for me...

    Ok. After trying the Earmen Sparrow for some time I’m sending it back. It picks up data noise and ruins songs. First I thought it were the cables... but it’s the Sparrow.

    I have found a solution for the lightning to usb c issue. A Meenova micro-usb to lightning cable and an Aukey micro usb to usb c adapter are confirmed to work by me.

    Bought this and have no regrets whatsoever. I love the sound it gives to all my IEM’s and headphones. And yes, it’s so damn tiny and pulls hardly any juice from my iPhone. The thing that remains is finding a decent shirt lightning to usb C cable that actually works.

    Thanks for the review. I have just received my Earmen Sparrow and I’m very happy with it. The only downside is the fact that one still needs to use the camera connection kit. I have owned the Lotoo lightning to USB C cable, but was appalled by the quality and the €39 price tag. I’m now looking...
