    Are the Meze 99 classics any good?

    I seem to have an issue with headphones that have excessive midbass, I’m looking for a pair of headphones that are more comfortable than my NAD HP50s which seem to do everything else right.

    Recommended Upgrade from HP50

    DIY balanced cables

    Figured I would share my balanced cables I just made for my 400i's. The connectors are excellent from alliexpress, soldering was easier than some others. I used a bit of heat shrink for the strain relief's and copper from a stripped CAT6 patch cable.

    Xonar D2X Sound Card VS Fiio X5ii (Same DAC)

    Im undecided as to which DAC to use...the one in my Fiio x5ii (PCM1792A) or the Xonar D2X sound card which is a TI Burr-Brown PCM1796. Theoretically the one in the sound card is technically higher end i think. I also have a fiio x3ii which has a cirrus logic CS4398 but imagine that its lower...
