    FiiO Q5, Flagship DAC/Amp, an Dual DAC, USB/Optical/Coaxial/Line in, share the same amp module with X7.

    I currently have a Fiio E18 and I can't wait to upgrade to the Q5. I know whatever Fiio puts out will be HQ. aka subbed

    Missed opportunity to tell everyone how good the Macaw's really are. I'm using some double flange tips with them and they're just so yummy. :D

    Pioneer new DJ In-Ear Headphones DJE-2000 and DJE-1500

    The 1500 has a load of bass and treble. Stock sound is very V-shaped but as someone else mentioned the DJE series is VERY eq-able. I just wish I could have gotten use to the fit but my ears just weren't compatible. I had the same problem with the IM70, so I know it was just my ears.

    MacaW GT100s(inverted dynamic driver) impressions thread

    I'm really enjoying the black filters + auvio tips. I think silver filters are the best overall, black are the funnest, and gold are trash imho. Gold just sounds like silver with less bass. Auvio tips are working well but I've yet to try any extensive tip rolling or even the included foams...

    MacaW GT100s(inverted dynamic driver) impressions thread

    I have to say, besides the cable being a little more flimsy than I originally thought it would be. These, so far, live up to my expectations. The BQ is way above something of this price range, the packaging was done very well, the sound without burn-in & just the stock tips is pretty damn good...

    Thanks to Twister & Selenium's reviews I now have the Macaw GT100s coming to me. :D Managed to keep myself from buying new headphones for so long, but that invisible itch is daunting. :)

    I went ahead and bought these off Amazon because I have prime for two-day shipping. These look like they're tank level bq. :)

    Pioneer new DJ In-Ear Headphones DJE-2000 and DJE-1500

    So, I received my cable. It's the Shure SE846's cable. Super strong memory wire around the ears but less memory in the actual cord, feels a lot cleaner (which may be placebo). This cord just is all around better than the one that came with the IEM. Still waiting on my Sony Hybrids.

    FX850 is probably a step above the rest.

    Pioneer new DJ In-Ear Headphones DJE-2000 and DJE-1500

    Okay, initial impression is that they sound good. Clear mids, deep bass, a bit of sparkly on the top, but the fit is something you're gonna have to get use too. I'm having an extremely difficult time with it. I think I might have figured it out with the medium auvio tips but I'm honestly not...

    Pioneer new DJ In-Ear Headphones DJE-2000 and DJE-1500

    Yeah, this is actually what caught my attention and why I didn't just jump straight to the major leagues. I have high hopes for the comfort on these headphones and if it works out I would love to see TOTL universals implant a similar design.

    new akg k323 xs

    I've been trying a lot of headphones with the 75ohm impudence adapter and today I grabbed the K323 out of my bag of random cheap IEM. I forgot how good they sounded and decided to try the impudence adapter on them. Man, I think these took to that a lot better than any headphone I have tried thus...

    DJE1500 can be had for $155 on amazon. I enjoyed the last headphone you suggested to me(X323XS); so I might check them out. Not really interested in the UE900. I've heard them before and I felt like the mid-range was heavily recessed. I thought about going with the IM03 but I had terrible fit...

    CKR9 was definitely on the shortlist. Along with the UM Pro30. I'll check out the ASG1+ & Rockets.

    Almost time for me to make some new headphone purchases. I'm getting that itch. I think I'm going to pick up the Philips X2, Vmoda XS (because I enjoyed everything about the M80 except the fit, yuck), but I need your guys help with IEM. So what's the latest buzz worthy IEM under $500? My sound...

    @Hi Trust me, mate. I know all about the kool-aid that Mo' sells. The does only hype phones that are a little deserving of hype though and so far he doesn't seem to want to sell the Tenore (aka the IEM he called "End Game) or the ED3. Give it a couple weeks and he'll have a new end game, but...
