    SONY IER-Z1R

    Went to canjam SG this year, now I'm in a limbo between Z1R and Tia Trio, I found that Trio to have more refined sound especially the bass but less treble sparkle and less grand sound stage. Meanwhile Z1R, I gave it 2 more listening, I must say the sound is a bit less coherent but it conveys...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    It's similar in a way that it has that u/v shaped tendency but other than that it's a very different presentation, pp8 is very squeaky clean studio feel meanwhile z1r feels more like a cafe type of environment. The bass in z1r is far superior in all ways than pp8 but for the highs I think is...

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I can't stand the Z7 and Z1R headphones, there's just something not right about it for me but somehow I like the IEM.

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Anyone tried fixing dead dial and display by themselves? I mean like soldering out old broken components for a new ones? I never opened my unit but the dial and display is dead since September because of slight power surge, the only solution they give me is to flash firmware which is software...

    Hifiman Edition X

    Been trying to find comparison between the V2 and ether, I can only find between v2 and flow or v1 and ether. Could anyone give me the impression between the two?

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

      the fact that DP-X1 is very digital in nature didn't help the IE800 making harsh sounding tone in some parts of songs, so maybe it's the DX200 itself also but I think it's also the synergy that makes the combo good.

    New Inear Prophile-8

    I made a cable from local shop using eidolic jacks and pin with copper litz cable. I don't want to alter the original cable for balanced so this is the end result lol.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    So I guess the whole unresponsive touch screen issues spawn from low quality screen protector? Not software right? If that's the case then I feel much better.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    I almost expected this to be at least around $1200-$1500, thank god iBasso sees what's happening in the market. I'm totally interested in this as a replacement for my DP-X1 because of the amp module, the looks and possible build quality, hopefully on software front they won't disappoint like X7...

    Astell&Kern AK T8iE MkⅡ(Impressions and discussions thread)

      Yeah, but I suggest you get those bluetooth MMCX adapter just so the cable won't move too much from body movements, I got the mk2 but the connector still feels flimsy (although I still haven't experienced any problem after using it for 2+ months).

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    Hope this will trigger a resurgence of high end DD, I just can't get into BA even the higher end ones.

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    LG might be getting a new adopter here, I'm not sure whether it can replace my DP-X1 but it ticks all the boxes. Such a shame Samsung has to go all through this.

    My Xfinity 2.0 display just went out and I want to change gain setting and I'm navigating blind, can anyone please help me through the steps? I mean how many turns to reach HP gain setting etc? Thanks.   EDIT: Turns out my dial and display died, anyone from SEA region got any idea what should...

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

      My IE800 has been a tank, it has survived 2 partial recable and now total recable, never a single problem. The sound from the total recable is a welcome change, it reduces the V shaped tendency and give more meat to the overall sound. I'll probably never sell it along with my T8ie Mk2, they...

    ONKYO DP-X1 | Dual Sabre Dacs | Balanced | Sabre BTL Amp | MQA | DSD 256 | Android 5 |

    I don't mind Onkyo making phones but they should make a true replacement for DP-X1 without making some head scratching decisions on their device. Something that can replace DP-X1 on its price bracket while giving a fight to those in $1500+ area.

    Audeze iSINE 10 & iSINE 20: Audeze releases two new IEM planar magnetic earphones

    I'm quite dumbfounded why do they make it open backed, at the very least make 2 versions of it. I can't listen to this while on the airplane or commuting, the sound might leak and the size is huge by IEM standard.

    Astell&Kern beyerdynamic AK T8iE Review (First Impressions from IFA 2015)

      Currently burning in my T8ie mk2. I find it to have even more bass in a good way and the presentation is more engaging but still less than IE800 "in your face" sound sig. Overall it's the same old same old and I'm currently using a OCC litz copper cable made by my local shop with eidolics...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

      I'm using Geek Pulse infinity v2.0 (which actually works as intended) and a Burson Soloist for my Ether, I always thought the amp was the bottleneck, oh how I was so wrong when I switched from NAD D1050 to my current DAC. The Infinity as an amp itself is too tame for my taste to drive Ether...

    Astell&Kern beyerdynamic AK T8iE Review (First Impressions from IFA 2015)

    This is like a mexican stand off between 3 DD IEMs from German/Austrian companies. I have to say that I feel 3003 to be the worst out of the 3 though, I don't feel anything special when listening with it. I might be one of the luckier ones where the IE800 eartips can fit easily, I feel both T8ie...

    Astell&Kern beyerdynamic AK T8iE Review (First Impressions from IFA 2015)

    I'm using DP-X1 balanced with IE800 and T8ie and found them both to be really good. It's just that IE800 is more forward with it's presentation and lean sounding compared to more laid back and thicker sounding T8ie. Both IEMs can give detailed presentation but it's just that T8ie sounds a bit...

    Astell&Kern beyerdynamic AK T8iE Review (First Impressions from IFA 2015)

    Just got news my RMA is almost done, should be this week or next week. I don't know what I will get but I have a feeling it should be mk2. Hopefully this time I don't need to invest more time and emotion anymore.
