  1. Blur Beautiful Witch '美魔女' aPs 300ohm 2.5mm earbud

    I'm hoping to move these buds to a new home. It's one of 3 Blur models I currently have, and it's close enough to another that I can't justify keeping them all. I find this model to have excellent tonality and timbre and fantastic transparency - tons of detail, and a mid-forward signature. I've...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    New second-hand Atticus owner here, and very happy after a full day+ of listening. I'm definitely noticing the amp pickiness, or at least much improved performance on higher power. I was assuming I'd be using this at my desk with Jot2/Bifrost2 combo, so that's fine. They sound quite good out of...

    Dan Clark Audio Aeon RT Closed thread

    Quite good. No measurements or anything, but they're among the best I've got. Better than Argons, Meze 99 Neo.

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    I can concur. The newer mimby firmware/chip along with an Eitr is pretty noticable compared to older firmware/chip Mimby alone. A newer mimby with unison USB is what's needed, since Eitrs are hard to come by now. I'll add that of someone really wants a like-new Eitr, send me a PM. Mine's been...

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Check out DCA's AEon - probably Open X or RT Open. The OG Flows (non-RT) might be worth a look too. They're a little pricier than Sundaras. Build quality is great. Not easily detachable pads is a downside, but they're super comfortable and sound awesome when adequately driven.

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    Is this another headband that doesn't have any swivel to it? Granted, the Ananda fit me well enough, but it's surprising they would go this route.

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I'm really not sure about the extent of the impact, but the DCA perforated pads might be something to check out, too. I'll say this based on my experience with the AFC RT, they handle EQ very well.

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    I have both the 789 and Jot2. For a quick rundown of differences (as I haven't listened to them side-by-side in many months): The Jot2 displays dynamics better, comes across as more punchy to me, and sounds a little more 'meaty' for lack of a better term. The 789 sounds to me more transparent...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    I had a similar situation with my 660s that I bought used. There was a creakiness, but I didn't have the loosening issue. I fixed 95% of the creak with some careful application of WD40. If it comes back, I'll try some silicone lubricant or something else. I haven't had any of the loosening you...

    Have you observe it working differently with a different source? A computer or iOS device, maybe?

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I'm not sure where you're located, but they have a US outlet I've ordered from. Pads a couple times and a whole new HD650 headband/yolk. Pretty easy process, with an actual human customer service rep to talk to.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I don't think so. If I recall the plus is 32ohm, and the RY4S 300ohm is a different model. Just my opinion, but both are good! Certainly considering price/performance.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    I'll add that this is the normal behavior and similar setup as I have with my BF2. I can't help with comparison to older schiit gear, though.

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    Which DAC card? What's your preference between balanced and multibit? It might be worth noting the DAC cards (at least the balanced one) doesn't output a full 2V to the amp section. At least that was the case with the balanced 4490 card in my Jot1. Might not matter for preamping active speakers...

    Blur Earbuds Lovers

    I've found it depends quite a bit on the earbud/headphone. Some (usually efficient/low impedance) don't sound much different at all. Others that are harder to drive often sound more full (vs a little thin on the ES100) and to me it presents dynamics better without seeming to strain or get peaky...

    Sure! It's a Schiit Bifrost 2 and Jotunheim 2. I've got a Loki mini+ in there too, but I don't often use it.

    Blur Earbuds Lovers

    I've had my first set of Blurs for about a day. With only some hours of listening, I can say these are special. Unique tuning and presentation as others have mentioned. Bass presentation beats my expectations, sounds really good, extends well for buds. Mids and particularly vocals have a unique...

    The Deals DISCUSSION Thread (READ THE FIRST POST!!!)

    I've taken a gamble on a several B stock items and it's always worked out for me. A majority of the time I haven't been able to find a flaw at all. Bifrost 2, Modi 3 most recently. I did get a Loki+ that needed a little fiddling to keep the LED from shining through the bottom front edge of the...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    I've got this one: https://store.hifiman.com/index.php/headphone-travel-case.html initially purchased for Ananda, but it fits an Arya as well, although quite snuggly, or with the earcups twisted/stacked a certain way. It's a nice case, but says currently only available outside the US.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    This was my experience too. I like being able to put a Loki in the SE path and not feel like I'm losing much, and still have the balanced path all the way through.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    For me the Yincrow RW-2000 and Newbsound X made by @irv003 get the most time. I've a K's 300 for at the office and a few budget sets for exercise (X6 and RY4S). A set of Blur buds from Master Wong is on the way. I don't have 30 sets, but clearing out much of the rest is in the future for me.
