    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    I got these around a week ago and like them so far. The only wireless earphones I had previously were the Samsung galaxy buds+ and it looks like they will serve different purposes. I'll use the Samsung for the gym and office/commuting uses will be with the Sony. All my previous wireless...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I keep looking for alternatives at under $500 as the bottom of the front screen not being used does annoy me a bit. I can't find anything with the UI and long battery as most daps last somewhere between 8-12 hours. Sony daps have been the only one where I don't need to worry about battery life...

    FLAC downloads for Asian Music?

    Hi, I couldn't really find a good option so asking here. Are there are websites where I can purchase asian music in lossless format? More specifically kpop and cpop type of artists is what I am looking for. I do see artists on 7digital or similar websites however it's typically an album or two...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    I imagine we should be getting some sound impressions soon from those who purchased during the preorder stage. I got my universals in the mail today and I purchased mine a few days before the pre-order price ended. I got mine completely in black and I wish I got a logo or at least a better...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    I do enjoy the FH5 a lot however some people have had issues with the shorter nozzle. I do recall that Fiio released a longer nozzle FH5 so I assume this is no longer an issue. I don't listen to any of those genres however I assume an elevated bass response is vital. The FH5 definitely has more...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    I recently picked up the Andromeda in a local deal. I owned them around a year ago and regretted it ever since. I'll be pairing it with a Sony ZX300A using the balanced output. I've been using the Fiio FH5 so it's a much different sound signature than what I've been accustomed to lately. I've...

    Forza AudioWorks Impressions Thread

    What's the typical return time from website order to something getting shipped? I ordered an iem that should come in the next 4-6 weeks and a quicker or similar return time would be perfect. The website also shows the number in stock and that number changes and I change the termination, etc. Is...

    Custom Art FIBAE Black Announcement

    You could do what I'm doing. I will be getting universal's and if the fit isn't good I will go with custom tips.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I have the Jabra 65T Active and unfortunately I will be returning it. The connection isn't good enough as the music keeps cutting in and out. This is with my Samsung Galaxy S8+ phone and my Sony ZX300A. My Bose soundsport wireless has a solid bluetooth connection so not sure why so many...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I bought the Jabra 65T active today. It's on sale at Amazon (as well as the Jabra website) and depending on your credit card you may get a discount as well (I got $15 off) so at that price, it was too good to pass up. There's a refurb on ebay for the same price however I do get a longer warranty...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    I was definitely expecting a higher price tag and a shorter introductory price period after all the posts by those who had the review unit. The posts makes the signature would be similar to an se846 type signature except with more treble? I don't need massive amounts of bass so the fact that...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    I have the stock cable as well as the 4.4mm balanced cable by Fiio. I have no issues using either during my commute. There are lighter cables but I wouldn't notice unless I had the lighter cable to compare with. I have an ALO Audio balanced cable on another mmcx earphone and it is much lighter...

    CustomArt FIBAE Impressions Thread

    Both. You would need to mention that you want universal when you order them. I've asked the same question in the past and it isn't that clear. A universal option in the ordering process would be a better process than adding a note.

    The discovery thread!

    I'm not at the point where I can declare one better than the other yet as I'm still looking for some better tips (it isn't obvious at this point which could be a good thing depending on your perspective). I'll purchase some of the more popular options and see where I go from there. My...

    The discovery thread!

    I picked up the dm6 recently after watching a YouTube video by @Hawaiibadboy and I'm impressed. I was hoping for sales after massdrop delivered but luckily I found one in the ads earlier. I have the Fiio FH5 and the dm6 should be good alternative when I want a different signature. I love good...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    If it's anything like the one they had before they changed their lineup, it's nothing special. I have the mmcx one. I found this link https://assets.ultimateears.com/ue-custom/ue-custom-qsg-eng.pdf however it shows aac, sbc and modified sbc. The picture shows the volume control currently on the...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    I received the 4.4mm balanced Fiio cable as part of their promotion today. The cable came in 3 weeks from China which isn't too bad. It looks the same as the stock cable except for the termination. I bought an ALO Audio silver balanced cable so this cable could be a good backup if anything ever...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    The only way to tell is to hear it for yourself. I have the ZX300A and recently got the chance to hear the wm1a and it confirmed my purchase. I use the ZX300A primarily during my work commute, in my office or in coffee shops so there is more background noise than normally. The increase in sound...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    I wouldn't underestimate the CA Comets just because they are $199. They are surprisingly good considering the low cost.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I've enjoyed the zx300 for a bit and really like it as a dap when running it balanced. It feels like Sony wasn't paying much attention while developing the single ended and the USB dac function. There's a noticeable delay when I try to skip tracks or with any pause in audio playing. Is there any...

    FiiO FH5 - Quad Driver Hybrid In-Ear Monitors || Knowles Balanced Armature Drivers

    You should be able to twist it back in place shouldn't you? Also, I would contact fiio to see if they can send you another cable. On another note I got my spinfit biflange tips in the mail today. I was using the grey balanced tips by Mee audio and the spinfit definitely has better isolation...

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    I like them a lot more than expected. They are reasonably priced and fairly balanced for the most part. The zx300 and the FH5 sounds like a good combination so far.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    What volume are you typically using when driven balanced with iems? I have the same model however haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary volume wise. I'm typically at 25-30 when balanced and using high gain. I haven't used full sized since I don't have a cable for my headphones however I...
