    Comment by 'Turbulance' in item 'ddHifi TC28i Lightning to USB-C Adapter For iPhone'

    I recently purchased one of these from the DD Store via AliExpress. It worked for about 4 weeks then it started to have trouble connecting with iOS stating it wasn’t compatible. At first it stopped working only on one side, the side I was using mostly, but soon it was failing intermittently on...

    Hifiman HE400se

    Thanks for confirming that. At least I can upgrade the pads if I’m not happy with them or they get damaged. Does anyone have a good suggestion for a balanced 2.5mn cable?

    Hifiman HE400se

    I’ve ordered a pair and they’re slowly heading my way from China. Question for any owners out there; are the ear pads removable (like every other Hifiman) or are they glued on?

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    For me it was my left ear that was the hardest to fit this new design to, though I have found that with perseverance I have sort of got used to them. Now I can use them for a couple of hours before I must give my ears a short rest period from them. But, on the plus side for me, the fit is...

    The discovery thread!

    I have just received my new Smabat Black Bat IEMs. I thought I would share my unboxing with the group. The IEMs are extremely comfortable and fit firmly in my ears. I doubt they would fall out. They have a single dynamic driver but with some form of graphene coating. The IEMs also have an...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    So far mostly good. As far as this pair of ASX, I am very happy with their sound. To be honest I really like the tuning of these IEMs, I do not find the bass to be muddy and neither do I find them dark. Not sure why some of the reviews have been so negative. The only downer for me so far has...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Just got my KZ ASX delivered. Decided to use the stock cable and large tips to test. Listening to my Tidal, Headphone Testing playlist via USB Audio Player Pro and my Fiio BTR5 connected via USB-C. Very happy. Extremely detailed sound and I'm hearing a few things I've not noticed in my other IEMs.

    Ultrasone fans where are you?

    Got my Ultrasone Signature Studios a couple of days ago. I’ve used them as much as possible since getting them. I’ve been waiting for them to burn in before commenting. I can say I’m extremely happy. They have slowly mellowed and I expect that they’ll continue for some time yet. But they are...

    FiiO Flagship Portable High-Fidelity Bluetooth Amplifier BTR5 is available now!

    Unless it hasn’t been answered previously. The BTR5 has a single ended (3.5 mm) output and a balanced (2.5 mm) output. Single ended output uses only one DAC because it provides only needs a left and right signal and shares a common ground to each driver. Balanced output require two DACs...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Thank! I had just got my pair of the older ST-10 earbuds out of the letterbox when I saw a message on AliExpress from NiceHCK informing everyone of the new models. I was a bit annoyed about that but note it looks like I made the right choice. There are still plenty of the old green ST-10...

    Comment by 'Turbulance' in item 'SMABAT ST-10S'

    Both the silver and gold ST-10s models have a longer acoustic tunnel than the older ST-10. Smabat claims this make for a better bass response. I don’t find problems with the bass in my set though, so I’m not sure how it could be any better than it is. The silver ST-10s has impedance of 40 ohms...

    Comment by 'Turbulance' in item 'SMABAT ST-10S'

    The day I received my pair of the original Smabat ST-10 earbuds was also the day I got a message from NiceHCK AliExpress store announcing these new versions and that they replaced the original earbuds that I had just got out of the mail. Great timing NiceHCK! I contacted them and they offered...
