    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Quick question, if I may. I have a friend who wants the best bang for his £50 first pair of tws. What's the latest recommendations please? I have the Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro myself, which I'm very happy with. I originally suggested the old version (pre LDAC) Liberty 2 pro as at one point they...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I feel that Z plus certainly improves the sound for me. These things are all subjective though. The good thing is there are many flavours of MrWalkman's firmwares. I'd definitely give them a try as you've absolutely nothing to lose. You can revert back to stock if you're not impressed.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    For the headphones I use (see below), I don't feel the need for one. I do wonder if my Oppo PM-2's might have more life breathed into them with an amp though. In which case, I'b be curious to see what answers you get on that question.

    Comment by 'nijfi' on listing '[UK] E-MU Teak'

    Any joy with other cables on these, particularly balanced cables, or have you just used the ones they came with?

    Thanks. Apologies, didn't realise it was on a forum. I've kindly been steered in the right direction. Interesting reading and viewing.

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Can you link to the page? I couldn't find it on NP Audio site, or by various searches of zx300 battery. I'm just curious to see what they've done, as those pictures indicate they've moved capacitors around as well.

    OPPO PM-2 Is Available - Post Your Impressions Here

    Thanks, that's good to know? I've yet to take delivery of mine, so would want to hear then first before making a decision on cable. But with all reviews saying they favour warm rather than bright, I'd assumed silver would be the way to go, rather than copper. Any recommendations for a silver...

    OPPO PM-2 Is Available - Post Your Impressions Here

    Thanks. I've followed this thread and read and watched all the reviews I could find. Seems the consensus on sound signature is right up my alley. If there's one thing I struggle most with it's harsh trebles. I definitely favour warm and laid back over anything bright. This would be my first...

    OPPO PM-2 Is Available - Post Your Impressions Here

    Ok, thanks. Yes, earpad replacement is a concern. I saw a post further up about modding the earpads. I suppose once you have the framework (the bit that clips in like speaker grills) at least something can be fashioned?

    Cowon M2

    A bounce for this old thread and a wonderful little DAP. Had mine for about 3 years I think. Paid about £80 as an open box on Advanced mp3 players. It's been superseded by a Sony Zx300, mainly because I needed to use a 512gb card, and I fancied an upgrade. But I still dig the M2 out from time...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Confession time. Today I took delivery of a purple pair of LP3's. A BNIB pair came up on eBay the other night at a reduced price on even the limited time deal with Soundcore or Amazon. I took the gamble, as there's no returns, because the purple ones wouldn't have shipped this early from...

    I've now also read your review that you just put up on the LP3'S, having clicked the link on the other thread. Excellent work!, Thanks. I already had a pair on order so wasn't able to buy from your link I'm afraid, but thanks for the reviews nonetheless.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Sorry. I meant custom as in moulded to your own ear. I've never really got on with silicone tips. Although I've only tried stock ones from an old pair of Klipsch and my current NFAudio NA2's. I tried Comply memory foam and got on pretty well with them so stuck with them. When they all wore out...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Regarding custom eartips. What's the general consensus on here for customs? I see Zenplugs do them here in the UK for a very good price. I've also heard of Snugs. I've not looked into it too much really, but it's been something I keep meaning to do.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Ok, thanks. Mine are on order. I'm interested to see how they perform with FLAC files on my Sony ZX300 over LDAC. I don't realistically expect them to compete with my wired options, but for on the go listening and convenience, I'm hoping to get a decent tune out of them at least. Good to read...

    Every single review I've read has said that the HearID tuning has made it too bright for them. What are you pairing them with? And what files are you mainly listening to?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Thanks for the LP3 feedback. I've only heard two very brief sound tests on YouTube. Comparing them to the MX4's and a Sennheiser (model escapes me now). Both tests made the LP3s sound thin to me. They sounded bright, and with the reviewer and others raving about the bass, all I could think...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    From the wireless earbud reviews I've seen of his, had I been about at the time of release, I would have snapped up the earfuns that he tuned. At that price, they seemed to excel against all the others he tested. I have a lot of time for him. Open honest reviews, and you know that he favours a...

    I was really hoping Oluv would have done a review by now, but he hasn't.

    You may have to wait a while as I'm going to be a bit of a tart and go for the purple ones:smile: There's a bit of a longer wait on those unfortunately.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    One day and 12 hours left to get the LP3s at £120. Which is £20 off, and the claimed price again on Black Friday. I really wish there were some in depth reviews on places like here from actual users that have had them for a week or so on regular play. Rather than just the endless unboxing and...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Has anyone ever used true wireless earbuds with the zx300? I'm thinking of dipping my toe in the wireless waters. Currently I use NF Audio NA2 IEM's and Hifiman Edition S over ears. Both wired into balanced. These will remain my main listening experience as I love them both with the Zx300. It...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    I'm afraid I'm not a very advanced Linux user, and I've zero experience with Mac's or anything to do with Apple. But thanks for the thought. That's a really good tip to familiarise myself with the stock ZX300 sound first. I can see your reasoning exactly. Enjoy what I've got first, then when I...
