    They look beautiful and if they compete with the Oxygen, that's very high praise in my opinion. Wish I needed another set, I'd love to add these to the collection. Great review, succinct but informative :)

    Unique Melody MEST Indigo/MEST MKII/MEST/mini MEST Announcement and Impression Thread.

    Intended to do some of this a while back. Mest Mk1 - followed some guidance from this thread. Here are my results. Cable - Xinhs Graphene So first of all I have to give props out to Xinhs. I was ordering in China at the same time he had his AliExpress sale, so I think he was quite busy. AE had...

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Bought some for my wife, have only listened a little so these are, I guess, initial impressions. Tried them from the Fiio M11, iBasso DX220 and Ovidius B1 as source (balanced from the DAPs). Sounded great, did not in any way sound like they needed more power. They may improve even further if...

    iBasso CF01 (Cable Free), BT MMCX adapter for any MMCX IEM.

    Haha! Yeah, wired is absolutely my preference. However my phone doesn't have a jack. I have a dongle for listening (Ovidius B1, with UM Mest - very nice) but for running and for phone calls, I chose to go with wireless. Also, I do not want to use my Mest for running since I sweat like a waterfall!!!

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    The power draw of 0.12W (120mW) is quoted on numerous sources. This is from HiFiGo's page. Google "Ovidius B1 Power" for more examples TaoBao pages selling the B1 say the same. I'm still not sure of power output but that is the advertised input, in watts.

    7Hz Impressions & Discussion

    Hello! I bought the 7hz Timeless for my wife and I tested on Ovidius B1 DAC. Can't get a power output value for the Ovidius, but since it only draws 0.12W from the phone, I'm going to assume 120mw is a safe bet. It drove the IEMs beautifully. Wasn't getting anywhere near 50% volume and I tend to...

    USB-C to 3.5mm adapters (DAC) - Let's find the best

    This is not my list, it's from @OspreyAndy https://andyaudiovault.com/donglemadness/ You'll have to check for yourself which are balanced and which are not. I followed his advice and got the Ovidius B1, it matched his review and description to a "t" and as such, I have been very VERY happy...

    Audeze Mobius Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    For the best possible 3D audio, you'd want a Mac or Windows machine so that you can install the software. The software will then allow the Moebius to be used to decode and present a 5.1 or 7.1 audio signal (like your AVR does, but instead of sending it to the 5 or 7 speakers, it does its best to...

    Great review Andy! I couldn't wait for your feedback on these and grabbed a set for my wife. Have not burned them in. Finding the upper mids/lower treble a little sharp which may well soften over time. Also totally agree that tips are crucial. Have not found the optimum set yet (and the missus...

    Unique Melody MEST Indigo/MEST MKII/MEST/mini MEST Announcement and Impression Thread.

    I think that's fair...for the price I'm happy to take a chance (since reportedly bass doesn't take a hit...) For the life of me I cannot find it on TaoBao. 4 core, yes. 8 core, no. Might have to ask the missus to see if she can find the AliExpress company on TB.

    Thanks so much! My mistake was looking for graphene as the filament material!!!! I thought $60 was a bit cheap for that!!!! Big big thanks!

    Can you do me a favour and either DM me a link or tell me what the product name/code is? I've looked on TaoBao but can't see a graphene cable from Xinhs. At $60, I'd definitely give it a try!

    Unique Melody MEST Indigo/MEST MKII/MEST/mini MEST Announcement and Impression Thread.

    Sounds intriguing, but at that price I'd have to audition. I'm guessing that a fair bit of the difference in sound you're picking up is down to the choice of silver as cable material (not in anyway detracting from your love of the cable) and without a demo I'd be worried it might take too much...

    USB-C to 3.5mm adapters (DAC) - Let's find the best

    I know it's not relevant to this thread, but please let us know what you think of the 7Hz Timeless. I'd love to snag a set, but I have absolutely no justification for it (I'm on Mest and wife has inherited InEar Prophile 8s so neither of us need anything else). Really interested to hear others'...

    USB-C to 3.5mm adapters (DAC) - Let's find the best

    Didn't mean to do this piecemeal, but - Today I gave the Ovidius B1 its first proper go, listening on the way to work. A YouTube channel had been recommended for Progressive House so I listened to that (I don't have Spotify or Tidal but after today, I'm wondering if I should....) Um...I was...

    Not the 8ex, but vanilla 8. High gain all the time. Absolute bliss. Been a good few months of use every single day and I still thrill to the sound. Using Hiby player as I found that the best sounding with the 220.

    DX220 A new view to your music. *** Latest Firmware: 1.19 Local *** Link for User Guide 1st Page. AMP9 Now available! And DC01.

    Your concern was whether there would be too much power for sensitive IEMs. You can compare sensitivity of my two pairs with the Xelento and see if that at least answers your question regarding power. I'm pretty confident you would be ok.

    I use the UM MEST and InEar Prophile S with Amp8 - both pair fantastically. Maybe see if you can pick up an Amp8 secondhand - I doubt you'll be disappointed, but at least it reduces the financial risk.

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    I really think he is the best reviewer of audio gear on YouTube at the moment. He's detailed and specific enough (in language and in areas examined) for those of us who are relatively well versed in audio gear, but also incorporates less technical, more emotive/experiential language and points...

    Sennheiser IE900 Review, Measurements, & Harman Target Talk

    You live in a one bedroom apartment in Wan Chai. Your "extra bedroom" is your living room/kitchenette where you sometimes sleep on the couch. Your "wife" is a XiaoMi S6. This spartan existence is the price you pay for such a heavenly collection of audio gear!
