    Why the Beats Hate?

    If you guys still think beats still sound bad you guys are sorely mistaken, with many high profile audiophiles shocked by how well they sound.  Good job guys, following in the age old tradition of headfiers that know about a headphone before they have heard it. What a joke you all are.

    Astell&Kern XB10 Extreme Bluetooth Adapter

      I'll be honest, I paired mine with my dad's samsung and didn't notice a huge different between that and my iphone. AAC does a pretty good job I think, but really what I think most of the fidelity comes from the xb10 hardware itself.

    Astell&Kern XB10 Extreme Bluetooth Adapter

      I just figured out how to do it... I'll edit the post above. The real issue is the manual sucks haha.  Also, do you find it hard to remember which buttons do what? It hasn't been great for pressing while not looking, I think something that many users might want. Since I mostly wear mine on my...

    Looking for a $300-500 cable, first time buying a cable

    cable length is the most important factor in sound. As long as you are not over 10 meters, you probably aren't affecting sound.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    So that's a 8+ hour run ? That's pretty crazy, good for you.   I know there are times when you want to be without your phone. Sometimes, when I really need to get a lot of work done in a 10 hour period of time, I lock away my phone. But then I have my computer. I'm sure there are other...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      You already are carrying an additional device. In your argument, you are carrying expensive DAP, phone (because who doesn't carry theirs) and mojo   In my argument, you are carrying phone, mojo, battery. And the battery could be smaller than the DAP, and the battery could be smaller than...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Yeah, I don't think there is any real justification beyond "I want Gadgets" which is fine. I also want gadgets lol. To say otherwise i think is intellectually disingenuous and is part of the worst parts of this forum. This is a place where people want gadgets, just admit it.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      Why not buy a battery pack?   I'm not criticizing how people spend their money, I'm just purely interested. I know there is a bunch of adversarial traditions here on head-fi, which is why I don't come here often. I've gotten into bluetooth solutions for headphones so I've come back but...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Whats the point of having a high end dap like an AK and then using it with a portable dac/amp like the mojo? Why wouldnt u just plug your iphone into the mojo ? Why wouldn't you use the AK DAP straight up?

    Bluetooth for customs?

      I am really confused on what makes customs different than any other earphone? (I use customs btw).    The downside of a solution like the westone or lear audio solution over the bts (or the xb10, which i have preordered), is that you cant use your customs wired without changing out the...

    Aftermarket IEM Cable List (Now more Visually Stimulating)

      1) I can connect directly to my phone. I have tried big name cables (I used to own ALO cables, I've auditioned whiplash audio).   2) It isn't my major, its my profession. Cables do make a difference, but it is very cheap to make a clean cable. The problem is it is very cheap to make a high...

    Aftermarket IEM Cable List (Now more Visually Stimulating)

    Hey guys, I just got a custom Beat Audio Signal cable, its pretty sweet. There is no sound quality differences between this and the stock UE cable (sorry cable believers, you aren't going to convince a physicist that there is anything but placebo sound) however the cable length, quality ect...

    Nobel Audio BTS with Ultimate ears custom earphones

    Hello,   I have a set of UE 7's that I use as my daily driver. I've wanted a set of bluetooth earphones for a while now. Has anyone used the nobel audio BTS with the ultimate ears headphones? Anyone have a better bluetooth solution? I have two concerns:   1) I want a shorter cable, but worry...

    Herus+ DAC/Amp (CONUS only)

    Hey guys, I have a few month old Herus+ DAC/Amp that sounds great on a computer or iOS device (i'm sure it works with android too but I havent tested it).  I don't have the original packaging, but I have the warranty card. It was purchased in Hi-Fi Taiwan earlier this year.  Im asking for 300...

    Aftermarket IEM Cable List (Now more Visually Stimulating)

    I looked on their website.... it doesn't seem they have the connector listed... Do you have a picture with your UERM's with the cable or do you not have one?
