    Now that would be hilarious if they would not. LDAC is a Sony thing after all.... Cheers

    Umm, nope. No need. Look at your device or look up the specs of the battery. Say its a 3000mAh battery and allows a 2C (2xcapacity) charge, you can safely charge it at 6 amps, which your USB will have a very hard time to accomplish. Maximum USB charge is 2.4 A anyway. Charging to 100% is fine...

    How many thumbs up can I give this post without silver plated copper thumb? :beerchug: Seriously, it is time to cut the crap - there is a cable thread for that. However, I am soooo not interested, I am not going to Google that for anybody. Moving on. Cheers.

    There is a saying in German: the tone (of your spoken word) makes the music. The same is true for the written words. Your way you put your opinion is text book trolling.... Cheers

    Geek Wold Discussion - GK10

    Nope. No need. It's just a matter of finding the right tips. ATM SpinFit work well for me. For the price these things sound really awesome. DSNuts: Damn you... :) It's your fault that I jumped onto this train and got the Reecho SG-01 along for the ride... Cheers.

    Topping MX-3 a really good all around swiss army knife. BT is Rx only, plenty of inputs. Speaker out as well. FiiO BTA 30. Tx/Rx BT and DAC. Supports LDAC in both directions I am running both fed by a split optical cable. Works good for my needs. Cheers.

    No logic involved. This is just for break in / cable make sound better if whatever believers. It is impossible to argue one way or the other without getting sucked in. Just let it go. Different strokes for different folks. Cheers

    I joined the MT300 club. I also purchased the NiceHCK NX7 Mk III. Needless to say - this all your fault, ehem enthusiasm about those IEM's. I am not regretting though. They both sound really good right out of the gate. I am rotating them with my TFZ No.3 and the NiceHCK DB3. To my ears the...

    MT300 or NiceHCK NX7 Mk III - I see you have both...I have failed to find a comparison. Would you mind giving me a short run down? Cheers

    Wow, I have not heard the name Nakamichi in some thirty odd years. It used to be a very solid company making tape decks, pre-amps and power amps. I also think the only company that got two drivers to properly work in a headphone is 1More. Cheers.

    Shanling UP4 & UP2 - Bluetooth 5.0 DAC/AMP with ES9218P, balanced output, supporting LDAC, HWA LHDC, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC.

    I had this POP every now and then as well. HOWEVER: 1. Never when used as an USB DAC 2. Never when my laptop was the source Thus I suspect my phone BT Tx to do this and since I also had this POP when my phone was (BT) connected to my car Rx I concluded that the UP4 is not at fault. YMMV but I...

    You could go through this thread: TWS - are we there yet Just my 2 cents... I tested quite a few and for the most part the microphone performance is rubbish. You might look into things like the FiiO UTWS1 or BTR5 or Shanling UP4 (love mine) and attach your favourite IEM / headphone. Beats the...

    That is correct. Place your BT device in a metal box and you get next to no signal. Cheers

    KEF Porsche Design SPACE ONE Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones on Newegg Shell Shocker. Down from $380 (really?) to $99. I know nothing about these HP, but if the price difference they claim is for real, then I would call it a good deal. Link...

    Quite frankly, I couldn't care less. If there are reviews here on head-fi, I would give it more credit though... I got my unit prior to it ever got to Drop. Some people do not like ZReviews on YouTube, but so far his impressions have worked well for me. I bought my unit through Amazon, which...
