    Earbuds Round-Up

    I normally use her cable down with double foams (one full and one donut, from ve ex-pack). I've tried around ear aswell but it hasn't usually felt that stable. However right now I'm listening to Maria cable around ear and fit seems actually pretty stable. Bass seems to be a bit less present...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I bought Rose Maria as upgrade to Rose Masya (mk2), as Masya had become one of my top favorite earphone. Masya has bright but very smooth signature, with spacious soundstage width and depth, and quite decent bass extension for earbud. Maria is clear upgrade to my ears as could be expected...

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    Those gold portas look sweet! I'd suggest porta pros, as I personally prefer their looks, they're foldable and they're a lot easier to mod (kramer mod) if you want to open up the sound. Porta pro driver is open compared to same driver in shell on kph30i, so in theory porta pro could sound more...

    Xuelin H6 (ihifi1969) review and impressions

    That's definitely a bad act on Xuelins side. Gapless should be so easy to add in firmware, at least with cue file. I mean it's already one single file and cue just adds track marks. H6 supports cue, but it STILL has gaps between songs, even though it plays one single file. What a flaw.

    Topping D50

    I sometimes have problem with my D50 and Thinkpad T400 that usb remains unlocked. It happens when I boot the laptop and somehow D50 just can't seem to get the usb input. Happens pretty rarely though. I use second usb port on laptop to provide power. When this happens, Usb is usually recognized...

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    Thanks! These parts were something I had readily in hand. I probably bought them from ebay. But if you want to make better and more solid adapter with a same idea I would suggest to use these...

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    I made little diy mmcx "extension pieces" for my srh1440. Mmcx sockets on Shures are deep in the shell so normal mmcx connector won't fit in there, so I made a little extension pieces which allow me to use normal mmcx cables. Solder work and with heat shrink. Heat shrink makes snug fit to...

    Colorfly C200

    Interesting that you got dac feature working with C200. May I ask what's the driver for win 10 that you use?

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    I made kramer mod to my kph30i. It needed some force to remove driver from front housing part, and I used pieces of double sided tape to install driver back to housing. Treble gained a bit more sparkle and sound is more open. Very happy with my kph30i! :L3000:

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    You're absolutely right. To my ears kph30i didn't sound too impressive out of box. Breaking in / loosening the headband clamp is also important as it improves comfort (and sound). But to me modding and experiencing is just a great fun, even if headphone didn't really need it.

    Xuelin H6 (ihifi1969) review and impressions

    I myself have always gone with more simple user interface daps, so next one could be something more fancy. Still, I fell love with small led displays with my first better dap Colorfly C3. There's just something very cozy when display isn't that big, especially when listening in the dark. It lets...

    Yeah, I would assume that too. Odd choice for mesh.

    3.5mm socket looks the same, except gold colored. Those cups and whole set looks really nice, but I would prefer more open mesh. I don't know if that mesh would actually affect to sound though.

    Hifiman IEM's: RE-400 and RE-600

    I seem to get better sound from my RE400 when I wear them cable up. It not different tonality really, but more open soundstage, like soundstage gets more clear sense of depth and imaging. I guess it has something to do with my ear canal shape or direction, so iem would be in slightly 'better'...

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    I believe that backing foam is in kph30i just to make it sound different from portapro, and/or to reduce sound leakage. Or it's just there to mask the outer shell holes. It would be interesting to compare portapro with G pads, and kph30i with G pads and without foams. How much difference would...

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    Yeah pretty much :beyersmile: . But taking them apart is pretty easy when no pads are installed! First disassembly though is more or less ripping apart!

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    I did a little comparison with and without driver backing foam on kph30i. I first removed other side and compared it against foamed side with channel balance control. Seems like foam causes some veil in treble. Side without backing foam was slightly more refined in treble, bass feels unaffected...

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    Nice avatar! :beyersmile: My exact thoughts, needs quite a bit more volume with G pads. Same thing with my Grados with G pads. Kph30i feels like super light full-size headphone with those G pads and sounds indeed outstanding. :L3000:

    Cool, you got them pretty quickly! G pads are indeed pretty huGe. I'm still waiting for my pair. Awesome that you find the sound pleasing!:L3000:

    BEST BUDGET EARPHONES THREAD- Chi-fi, Obscure brands and impressions sharing+PERSONAL RANKING LIST

    Today my Sony mh755 iems arrived. Ordered them in 28.8 for 5€. Long delivery or what? And I assumed that I'd get fakes. BUT I'm positively surprised, these are mindblowing nice for 5€! Genuine or not, they sound fantastic! How balanced sound signature! And soundstage has great width and depth...

    You're welcome. I had to wait my pair month or so, so delivery might be very slooow.

    Koss KPH30i appreciation thread

    Crazy pad experiment with kph30i! Pads are cheap not-genuine Grado G cushions, and they fit quite well actually. Of course little cut for cable would be necessary but these are for my Grados so I won't be doing that. But oh boy how they sound! Much bigger soundstage width and depth, whole...

    Yeah, mmcx connector can be unreliable, but there's a way to fix them once signal cutting occurs. Now I don't really have much real life experience, but I assume that it's almost always center pin which becomes loose on connector side. One mmcx connector I installed on my Hifiman RE400 iem had...
