    Used in Dac mode, the DX220 drains the internal battery. iBasso justifies this with possible damaged source devices which couldn't handle the current in case the USB power would be used. In my opinion it would be possible to handle technically. When the DX220 would be designed in a way that the...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    That's quite difficult to answer for me and therefore I kept both up to now. I experiment also with reversible different internal dampings and earpads, so the current sound of mine is also slightly different from stock. When both were stock in the past, i preferred the heights of the blue and...

    Fostex TH900 mods

    Has anybody compared the Dekoni Hybrid pads to either the stock ones or the Dekoni Sheepskin pads? I use the Sheepskin pads, but I can hear a less dominant bass which you can also see in the measurements from Dekoni. Fostex TH-900 mk II Measurements According to the graph, the Hybrid pads...

    Looks interesting. Do you have a link to a good braiding tutorial for 8 strands?

    I had this on Windows 10, so it doesn't seem to be OS related. On another day with a different USB cable everthing was fine. But i tested it only this two times as i usually use a different setup at home and doesn't need the DX220 (at home).

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Has anybody tried the Dekoni Hybrid earpads? I'm curious how they sound compared to the stock pads. I changed my pads to the Dekoni Sheepskin pads (standard sheepskin, not the fenestrated), they are made of a really nice material, but i could hear the slight drop of the bass which you can...

    Have you now found the ideal damping amount and position? Some posts ago you weren't complete happy with the damping mod.

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Up to now i only played around with new Dekoni pads, attenuation rings and several kind of dampening materials and amount. It's interesting how such modifications affect the sound and i like to experiment with this. Have the Lawton cups the same size as the stock ones or do they have a...

    I don’t know this specific amp and i never tried to use an additional amplifier, because then you have two amps in a row. From the smsl sp200 amplifier product description i can see there is a gain switch at the front plate. Does this make a difference soundwise when you connect it to the...

    Thanks for your detailed explanations, do i get it right that both options have two volume pots? Or which solution would provide just one volume pot?

    Just for my understanding that i got it right: Headfi does not tolerate when a private person does a mod and likes to charge the expenses for it? This is already categorized as commercial action and is not tolerated? Just wondering and try to understand the principle behind this.

    Well, you could create a new thread in the "introductions-help-and-recommendations" part of the forum. Don't forget to mention your budget and which headphones you want to drive. Your taste of music might also worth to be considered (e.g. classic vs. EDM). When you expect a more or less helpful...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Will do when i get them! No offence, even if you or somebody else guesses it wrong, as a German you do not exactly know how people from other countries see us, this might also vary, just picking up some popular stereotypes... well, i admit there is some truth in them. :wink:

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    As i like a big bass too, i'm tempted also to do this mod. Is it possible to buy some spare filters for modifying them? I'd like to keep the original filters unmodified e.g. for a comparsion reference.

    DX220 Thread for software requests.

    Hi Tim, that's a very good and detailled bug description and that is exactly what i mean. With this the developers could reproduce the bug or what is missing in the flow and fix it. I just hope that when life in China hopefully in the near future went back to normal, @Paul - iBasso would...

    DX220-EX Impressions

    Thanks for mentioning, but the DX200 has a sub bass roll off compared to the DX220 where this was fixed/improved. Not sure about the TI version, but i guess it's the same as the DX200 in terms of the frequency graph. The Amp8EX-FE i already have.... I still hope that maybe an official DX220EX...

    Ohhhh no... another must-have... :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: then i feel that the DX220EX is just right for me as i like plenty of punchy bass. :) I can offer you to sell your DX220Ex to me, you can have my stock DX220... :wink:

    TOTL disappointments

    I also disagree with your statement, see below. I agree that the Fostex TH900 series (MK1 and MK2) are true basshead headphones and they are TOTL from Fostex. They have so much bass that classic music lovers complain the bass is too much. For classic music there are better headphones out...

    It's true that there is a lot more than just the DAC chip. That DAC chips are cheap might be true for most of them (however what exactly do you call 'super' cheap?), but not for the Sabre Pro series as it is the flagship and this is comparable pricey. The ES9038 Pro is the current flagship...

    As others already explained, you hear never a DAC chip alone, always the implementation including the subsequent analoge amplifying stage etc. I've never heard of this general consensus Sabre DACs are brighter than neutral, therefore i disagree. If you can provide me some references (e.g...
