    Comment by 'Ritvik' on listing 'Hifiman HE-4'

    Sold my first pair, then got my second direct from Hifiman, they put it together from spares they had. Tried that route again but wasn't so lucky this time around. Good luck to the two of us! Incredible speed and air yet so fun, miss them dearly!
  3. Astell&Kern AKR02

    Rare and no longer in production, one of the top single BA IEMs. Comes with just the IEMs, the original silver cable, two spare cables and a large Pelican case Fantastic speed, very airy and expansive sound. Getting the seal/fit right improves the sounds tremendously. Note: Some people hear...
  4. Massdrop X Noble Kaiser 10 IEMs

    Bought in early Nov 2019, these have seen barely any use since their purchase owing to the fact that I had fit issues with them (and most IEMs) and also moved house twice keeping them in storage for the most part. They are in excellent shape with all ear tips unused. They come with the...

    MS Surface + DAC Setup controlled via phone/tablet

    Hi there, I've been away from a desktop setup for close to 8 years now. Education and work have kept me away from home in that time, and now having finally settled down again I'm looking to run a simple desktop setup with a small footprint. I'm looking mainly for advise on what software/player...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Hi there. Looking to pick up a DAC+AMP combo that would drive the TC well. Looking out for suggestions. I've been out of the scene for a while so I'm not too sure where to start looking! Looking to keep costs down to a minimum as this is a temporary purchase until I have the funds and desk...

    Shanling M0 - Smallest Hi-Res Portable Player - New Firmware V3.6

    Thank you. That did the trick! Now the wait for the firmware so playback doesn't stop at random.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Picked up the VE Zen 2.0 with a 4.4mm termination to go along with my Heir 8A. If you can live with ear buds I'd recommend these with the ZX300! Also plan on getting my AKR02 a balanced cable soon, it's a bit tricky as they have a proprietary MMCX connector that no cable makers have. Will need...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Looking at the chart, it would work with the mojo but the touchscreen wouldn't function? http://m.fiio.net/en/products/80

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I think the 4.4mm will render the 3.5mm mute if two devices are plugged in. Haven't tried it personally though.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Delivery here according to the stores was 10th Nov and I even picked the "collect at store" option instead of having it shipped. They dropped it off at my instruction, I got a call from the mailman and thought these were probably some cables I had coming in from Aliexpress! Didn't want the...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    There you go, the stiff bit (entire portion with the heat shrink) is about 3.5 cm or 1.4 inches and sticks up like two antennae.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I've been a bit lazy. An audition would be a 15 minute bus ride away and I've got my balanced cable. Tomorrow! I thought the ZX1 was nothing great, but I did enjoy the ZX2 when I tried it out very briefly. If anyone is ordering the VE cable I would suggest not getting it sleeved. The heat...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Most of what I've read seems to indicate that the ZX300 is an average sounding device. I didn't expect it to sound better than my QP1R, but I'm now wondering if I should cancel the pre order and get the Fiio X7 MKII ....... decisions decisions!

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Going pentaconn balanced is going to set me back a few hundred bucks easy! The one common consensus seems to be that it's well worth it. The 0.78mm cable should be here on Saturday. Getting my AKR02 cable done is a bit more complex though, no one seems to stock the threaded MMCX connectors. The...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    A friend bought a cheap adapter, while the sound quality was fine the adapter wasn't all that well built and came apart in few weeks. He now uses the Fidue adapter, I don't really like "pig tail" adapters but these are exceptionally well built. Of course, you do pay a slight premium for this...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Ordered! Works out to SGD 710 which is about USD 525 or GBP 395. Free screen protector. VE shipped the 4.4mm cable 2 days ago and I've had the WH-1000XM2 for a couple of weeks. Things seem to be coming along nicely. :ksc75smile:

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Units to audition are expected this week in Singapore, across a few places. My Pentaconn cable just shipped so perhaps I'll wait and try it out before I pre-order, don't mind missing out on the free screen protector which i don't think I'll use in any case. Delivery from 10th Nov here, wonder...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Ah I need to have one of the "hand terminated" 0.78mm pins selected to see all the options. The machine terminated pins limit the source end termination to 2.5mm and 3.5mm. Thanks! USD 55 all in, can have no complaints. Their cheaper cable I'm using now has treated me well over quite a few months.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Dignis should have something out soon as well. It's a bit off putting to spend 20% of the DAP's value on a case though! @superuser1 I've got the 3.5mm VE cable. Don't see a 4.4mm option though.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Does any one know of where I can find a non-flip case with access to the screen and buttons at all times? Seen only flip and pouch type solutions thus far. Any leads on budget balanced cables (0.78mm IEM termination) would be greatly appreciated too. For those of you who can wait till 10th NOV...

    Roll call: Indians staying in India, interested in high end headphones/IEMS

    That's true, will be using the 4.4mm jack and the wireless LDAC if I do get one. Most gear is available locally in Singapore, especially if you're into speakers. Believe there are at least 2 of Sennheiser's new Orpheus in the city already! There are a ton of stores but some good deals can be...

    Roll call: Indians staying in India, interested in high end headphones/IEMS

    It's a bit larger, a lot heavier and I expect it to be at least 50-60% more expensive than the ZX300 when it's released. I was just told that pre-orders will start next week with delivery in early NOV in Singapore. Will also try out the WM1A though.

    Roll call: Indians staying in India, interested in high end headphones/IEMS

    Selling my QP1R and thinking of getting the Sony NW-ZX300, primarily to try out LDAC since I picked up the WH-1000XM2 a few days ago for on the go use. Do you think there are any other DAPs out there that are worth auditioning as well? Thinned everything down to the Heir 8A and the AKR02, maybe...

    Roll call: Indians staying in India, interested in high end headphones/IEMS

    Not that I know of. But to give you an indicator, 3 day shipping via UPS on the much larger M1060 was about USD 55, this would be perhaps half that amount.
