    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    The SR2 is neither warm and relaxed and by no means shrill and shouty IMHO (and I must have missed those impressions...). Maybe it's from radically different sources and since the SR2 has great transparency the source is to blame but honestly I plugged the SR2 from my Lotoo PAW S1 to my DX160...

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 09/29/21 1.04.305 !

    I have not published it yet, but I am working on a SR2 review and DX300 is a good match :) SR2 also packs superb value for money, I love listening to it... nice change from IEMs to have a semi open headphone and it's so comfy

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    No dip in the lower treble for sure, yes my Audioquest Nighthawk were on the darker side and SR1 to a much lesser extent weren't the most sparkly but SR2 is a game changer as far as clarity, transparency and sparkle go... really stunningly good! I am really so impressed by the SR2

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    Not much activity there, impressions? I loved SR1 and regret to have parted with it, good thing to drop the MMCX connector for the SR2 though. I feel the SR2 is calling me :P @Paul - iBasso Is there a balanced upgrade cable in the works?

    @Paul - iBasso I love the SR2 and the stock cable is superb, still... any plans for a balanced upgrade?

    iBasso IT07 IEM, 7 Drivers. Release: Mid. November 2020

    Yes IMHO the SR2 are insane value for the price, from description of IT07 there seemed to be a similar vibe of musicality combined with technicalities

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    ...sure post additional impressions when I have cleared a bit of my IEM reviews backlog let me just say that each time I finish my "work" I pick the SR2 up it's a very addictive headphone with impressive price to performance ration and there should be huge buzz around the SR2, they deserve it. I...

    It's not the Diana (still have to hear this one) but I have been rekindling with headphones lately and I am extremely impressed by iBasso SR2 :heart_eyes: which holds insane value for money IMHO, but iBasso has always been a specialist of that... Vocals in particular are simply fantastic...

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    I love the SR2 and let me say it's a fabulous pairing with iBasso very own DX300.... a very analog sounding combo with superb vocals and a smooth, liquid and lively midrange... I get dreamy with those on my head :)

    ...benefit more than all BA IEMs which DC mode don't bring as much to the table. Even easy to drive headphones though benefit from DC mode, at least true of my dynamic iBasso SR2. I don't have a headphone collection so I can't elaborate more... waiting on DCA Stealth we'll see how this turns out :)

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    And the Eagle has landed... couldn't resist :p From memory SR2 is clearer sounding than SR1 but the same linear philosophy, a very elegant sounding headphone... need to burn in now and enjoy, good to take a rest from IEMs sometimes :) @Paul - iBasso The second set of pads is different is it ?

    iBasso SR2 Reaching for more music.

    Great thanks! The SR2 will be my first headphone review, I'd like to go balanced to check how it scales even further :P The stock cable is really great! From what I remember reading from @Paul - iBasso it's not SPC but a silver/copper alloy quite interesting!

    Shanling M8 Android Portable player

    Burn in is smoothing things out in a great way, the M8 is an intoxicating DAP to say the least, I am running iBasso SR2 headphone it's pretty amazing how they scale up... I haven't plugged the Zen Can to the M8 yet :p Vocals are really intoxicating it's amazing... And the PRaT is off the...

    iBasso IT07 IEM, 7 Drivers. Release: Mid. November 2020

    I know it's apple and oranges but have you heard iBasso SR2 headphone ? Looks like tuning wise there could be similarities :)

    HiBy R8 User Impressions

    While I am here, having a blast right now with R8 and iBasso SR2 on this album the drums are insane good :heartbeat: Honestly the bass coming out of the SR2 driven by R8 are just superb and I feel like I have the authority of an amp (granted, SR2 is easy to drive at 24ohm and 108dB...

    ...I forgot that headphones are a much complimentary must have... I have put this on the back burner using IEM so much and lived with the occasional SR2 listen but when I listened to @lafeuill D8000 Pro well there is something to be said for flagship headphones... that's why I am getting...

    HiBy R8 User Impressions

    I really didn't notice any graininess with any IEMs but again I have been using low gain across the board with turbo on, even SR2 didn't medium gain... didn't find turbo to make things more forward or increase volume but rather improve soundstage and dynamic range mainly. Medium gain can be...

    ...I get your meaning. I remember you mentioned getting into sedentary stuff? Burson and Vioelectric look cool ! Not even amped I picked an iBasso SR2 (had no headphone anymore, wanted something "cheap" but good) and my just out of R8 this headphone is pretty impressive... fantastic value for...

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    ...listen of nice stuff like @lafeuill D8000 Pro (ah and @popof94 Susvara out of Egoista 645 remains a religious experience) and my faithful SR2 which is semi open and does get listening time only when kids are at school... it pretty much was all IEMs. Each time I'd pick a headphone I'd tell...
