    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    As I've mentioned earlier, if you don't mind amping, the H6 can easily be the best all rounder IMO. I pair it with a FiiO aux cable with Oyaide copper wires to give it that bit more warmth and also with my iPhone 6 Plus paired with FiiO E07k portable DAC with Apple's Lightning to USB CCK to...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    My current (kinda finalised, because I'm a broke ass student) set up now is H6 with FiiO's RC-MH1 headphone replacement cable with PCOCC-A copper wire, FiiO E07k Andes, Apple Lightning to USB CCK and iPhone 6 Plus. Never been happier. The cable is the final jigsaw puzzle piece. The high...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    Unfortunately I hadn't have the chance to run my H6 in for 48 hours. Barely 1 week into my ownership of my H6, I had to send it in to the service centre. The black felt bag had transferred colour onto the natural leather of my H6. Black marks all over the lambskin earcups and calfskin headband...

    Fiio E07k connection with iPhone 5

    That makes more sense now. Maxing out the volume on my iPhone, I can set 0dB gain on my E07k with the volume on the amp at 32/60. Thanks guys. ;)

    Fiio E07k connection with iPhone 5

    Can anybody shed some light? Am I doing things right? I have the connections right. iphone 5 -> Lightning to USB CCK -> USB to Mini USB -> FiiO E07k -> Headphones. But problem is with volume. My iPhone still needs to be cranked up to around 3/4 volume and FiiO E07k needs to be in 6dB gain plus...

    Audio technica ATH-M50 vs ESW9A

    Haven't tried the M50 before, but I do own my 6 years old ESW9 that's very actively used. Build issue can be a problem though it's made in Japan. Sound wise, think of it as wearing a tube amp on your head. Sounds warm, probably due to the wood enclosure. Forward mids with luscious vocals...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6 Discussion Thread

    Just bought this yesterday at a steal (USD300). Out of the box, these sounded too bright. I was surprised, because I work in a Apple Premium Reseller and we have the H6 demo which I always listen during my lunch breaks. :p Though I am still half skeptical about burning in headphones, but I am...

    Review by 'alleggerita' on item 'Ultimate Ears 700 Noise Isolating Earphones'

    Frankly speaking, I totally forgot about the UE700s till I saw an IT shop in Singapore having a slight discount for it. And another piece of truth, I didn't even know it's a dual-driver balanced armature design till I read the text on the box. That is how UNDERRATED the UE700 is. I decided to...

    Recommendations for in-ear in the £40-60 region

    Am looking for an in-ear as a substitute for my ATH-ESW9 woodies which is a bit bulky to bring out sometimes. So I wish to have an in-ear with a rather similar sound signature to the ESW9s. Mellow mids, no need for extreme highs. With a hint of emphasis in the bass department too. All within the...

    There's no difference. The "A" simply denotes that it's for the American market

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    I'm using a LOD from Crossroads. They are only SGD25. But it serves my purpose so I'm more than happy with it. When it comes to cheap and good amps, I think not many can beat the FiiO E5. ;)

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    Yes I'm using a LOD. But a cheap one. Bass is awesome if you crank it up with the iPhone's EQ plus the bass boost on the E5. But you're gonna lose a bit of details at the high-end, which is to expected. So you'll have to choose for yourself. Usually for me I'll crank up the bass for the R&B...

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    I bought my ATH-ESW9 about 9 months back and it hasn't stopped wowing me since then. This is the most expensive pair of headphones I ever bought at SGD350. I pair it with my FiiO E5 and my 16GB iPhone 4. Quality wise, I have to say its not that awesome considering the fact that it's made in...

    Wooden portable ATH-ESW9 arrived! (with pics)

    Just got a pair of the ESW9 a few days ago and it blew me away. I'm using the ADDIEMs and the ADDIEM is actually very good, very underrated I have to say. But I know IEMs will never provide me with the kind of wide soundstage I crave for. Hence the decision to get the ESW9. Well, I'm not saying...

    New IEMs...

    Give the underdog (the ADDIEMs) a go as well. Dual-driver at a killer price. Quite a good SQ too. And it responds nicely to amps as well.
