    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I think they'll go with an entry level design. Not sure of the material but I'd put my money on 3d printed shells. They should absolutely go with APEX, maybe offer choice of one module to keep costs down. Apex (and Adel before) is where 64Audio made their name. People who suffer tinnitus, or are...

    Astell & Kern SR15: A&norma Impressions & Reviews

    Thanks Jason. After about 60 hours Firmware 1.33 I'm loving this little DAP. and that's another thing, I was surprised at how small/portable the SR15 is. really looking forward to further exploring capabilities of the sr15 One other question, what version of the firmware introduced the power...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    The single ended and Balanced both sound really good. Given I'm about 60 hours into using it (and it was open box item, not used) I'd say they are both outstanding sounding DAPS I was really disappointed when Opus went silent, I could have happily lived with my Opus warts and all. The balanced...

    thebit Opus#1 DAP from South Korea

    Used mine daily until recently, battery issues. Went out and battery showed 38%, 15 minutes later it shut down and was down to 2%. Since no one has heard from the bit I bought A&K &Anorma SR15. A bit pricey but amazing sound

    US Head-Fi Tour: VISION EARS ELYSIUM vs. VE8 vs. ERLKöNIG TOTL CIEM Tour - Starting November 2019

    one thing about the Elysium and VE8 was that they're huge. I've never had any issues with IEM size before but these were not IEMs that I could comfortably wear for extended listening sessions. I did get the best seal of any universal IEM I've ever had. @toaster22, is the Erlkoenig as big as the...

    US Head-Fi Tour: VISION EARS ELYSIUM vs. VE8 vs. ERLKöNIG TOTL CIEM Tour - Starting November 2019

    Elysium & VE8 West Coast kit on it's way to Aaf Evo. I enjoyed these, was sorry to see the VE8 go, the Elysium just didn't do it for me. I'll write something up a bit later.

    US Head-Fi Tour: VISION EARS ELYSIUM vs. VE8 vs. ERLKöNIG TOTL CIEM Tour - Starting November 2019

    In Universal I am definitely liking the VE8, there's something about it that just grabs me. The ELY's midrange though? to die for, but the lightweight bass just kills it for me and I'm not a bass head. One thing I should mention, with the Spinfit CP145s I get the best seal I've ever gotten with...

    US Head-Fi Tour: VISION EARS ELYSIUM vs. VE8 vs. ERLKöNIG TOTL CIEM Tour - Starting November 2019

    received the west coast tour kit from Tybot. Will post pictures of the kit later today. first impression of the Elysium (after an hour or so listening), liquid... mid range vocals to die for, not a bass head's IEM. Extremely smooth balanced sound, hits all of my sweet spots.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I'm guessing you're talking about the original U10 and U12. From what I've read in these thread the Ifi IEMatch works well as do other impedance adapters. That said I have not had to use one so not talking from personal experience.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    not specific to the U12t but I find the spinfit 145s and Spiral dots work really well with my U4SEs.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I initially wrote 'the original U4SE' but changed it since I didn't think that 64Audio created a second APEX only version of the U4SE, I've only seen them in B stock. Thought they were just left over originals. Either way it's one fantastic IEM, punches way above it's weight class.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    While the B stock sale is really tempting I find I'm fiddling more with getting a good seal with multiple tips on my U4SEs. I'm now in a quandary between A6t and N8T. Has anyone done that comparison? On tours loved the U18T and U12T, but again not interested in a universal.

    XDuoo X3 DSD 24Bit / 192KHz CS4398 Chip Lossless Music Player

    Slater, I think on V1 the buttons were labeled differently. Top row was Power symbol and BACK middle button was option on newer ones upper right is ESC and middle is MENU. there may have been other variations but the labeling of buttons was always my goto for determining v1 vs v2

    NEW XDUOO X serie DAP-X20, X10+ & X3+. XDUOO Are on FIRE!!!

    Xduoo's track record of firmware updates is abysmal. So is their customer service. That said the sound of the original X3 was outstanding, it was a shame the pitch error never got corrected by Xduoo, as Rockbox port didn't sound the same. just know that if you go with Xduoo and there's an issue...
