    ALO Pan Am desktop/portable headphone amp/DAC: Impressions and Reviews

    After much umming and ahhing I had to search high and low for a setup that matched the musical leanings of my home hifi (that I will sadly have to leave behind as I move halfway across the world :()   Impressions with the DT770 Pro are:   - Tighter bass amped than un-amped - Even...

    ++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the Introductions, Help and Advice forum

    Quote: Hey KG - They're very much like the Triple Fi 10's - laid back in the treble, warm midrange, decent bass.   I've auditioned a bunch of headphones now, from GS1000 to M50 - and the only that sounds "similar" to what I'm after is the Beyerdynamic DT770Pro (the black ones) - are...

    ++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the Introductions, Help and Advice forum

    Hi All,   Had a search and couldn't find an answer...   I need a set of full size headphones to replace my speakers when I move out - am open to amp/headphone combos.     I am looking for a set that match or closely align to the sound signature of my Triple Fi 10's - this is to...

    Quote: I have no doubt this is the case :)   Just for fun - look up an application called "Z-Player" on the market - see if it installs, and have a look how it runs.

    Quote: Unequivocally yes.   I've got a Galaxy S here which has a piddly 512mb of ram as well - and it runs ICS completely fine. What slows anything built on Android down = fancy transitions / applications.   I'm unwilling to accept that people are simply "ok" with poor design / poor...

    Quote:   I honestly don't understand why, in today's market, people are prepared to accept a DAP that has less than fantastic functionality - even if it is for "listening to music" only. To split hairs in this department, especially when they've built it ON TOP of Android is kinda moot...

    The hardware looks great on this - but my god forking 2.3.x for an mp3 player? Nahh!!   I wonder why they didn't go plain ICS or JB - it looks as if all their "apps" are just widgets on a stock launcher anyway?   Also did I mention it's ugly :( - really love the hardware tho (again)

    Sennheiser HD800: Spray Painted Plastic and the New Acid-Washed Jeans.

    I don't know about you guys but anything that colour "silver" looks cheap to me. Sure it's a good thousand pound headphone, but it still looks kinda dodgy? Like I guess there is an element of form over function going on there, but couldn't they make it look a little less space-agey? (Personal...

    from Iriver H120 to....Ipod or D2?

    The hdd upgrade for the H120 isn't massively hard to do - takes you up to 30gb (with a hdd) or 32gb (with SSD, a little more fiddly) but that doesn't solve your packaging problem!

    Just got mine today too - replacement for my E888's whose cable i mangled. Pro's over the E888's - better construction - better fit (for me anyway) - nice box! Con's - weird rubbery cable (don't particularly like these types of cables) Seems like a worthy successor to the E888's...
