    Smartphone+DAC vs DAP, relative impressions?

    Funny I'm in a similar position. I'm wondering if i can get the same quality or better than m17 quality with phone and dac combo for cheaper or leaps and bounds better for the same price as m17. I have lg v60. Googled that question and i ended up here 😉

    If you install viper4android, the best iem is going to be 64 audio u18t. Those 18 ba sounds like a theater with v4a

    I have the up and love them. But they sound like other electrostatic iem to me. I have the mest mk2 too imo they overlap and don't compliment each other like i thought they would. If you have mk2, no need for up at $699 plus tax. But if you don't have mest then up is a great iem and very fun!

    DX320 ROHM dac chips, Android 11, AMP11MK2s. New images and information on 1st page!

    Not true. Never need the fan or dc jack for power it's an added bonus. But i hope the new ibasso can beat it in audio quality.

    Unique Melody Newest Flagship-- Mason Fabled Sound Special Edition/Mason Fusang CIEM&UIEM

    I thought i was the only guy to notice that stuff. Whenever i posted gripes about an overpriced American IEM in a forum i would get double teamed by the promoters disguised as headphone supremacist. So i stopped posting my gripes.

    What's the ULTIMATE bestest IEM?

    You can look at reviewers rankings list. Gotchas to look out for: 1. Reviewers that don't have iem rankings or they never say any iem sucks or is overpriced. Every review just talks about the sound and maybe a few weaknesses. 2. Products that rarely come up in any of the greatest iem lists...

    Does v14 have that slam like a dynamic driver where you can feel it shaking your body and the bottom of your feet on tracks that require the "slam"? Would it satisfy basshead kind of slam? I find some not all ba drivers can replicate the sound but not the vibrations but some ba drivers can...

    Genre makes all the world of difference. Some reviewers say they're top tier for hip hop.

    LG V30

    That's the thing. There was always a war between phones and daps. Phones were getting so good they were about to reach a point where we didn't need a dap. Alot of people, like myself stopped purchasing daps once they realized lg v series were good enough... But the death of lg makes me...

    No they retail for around 700 to 1200 before they perished but you can get a good used one fir that price.

    I actually own a few daps but that's because at the time i couldn't root lgv60 and i haven't rooted my device yet. Manufacturers made it a lot harder or more time consuming to root lg v series. I believe that lead them to their deaths.

    Imho, you really don't need a dap especially a mid range dap if you have vpa. Just a waste of money unless you don't want to spend time tuning vpa then a external dap might make sense. But the dap manufacturers and their headphone supremacist affiliates in this community would lead you to...

    LG V30

    Yup. Before i thought a dedicated dap would be better but u will get more of a drastic change in audio with viper. Definitely good enough. The main thing or the most important is the iem your using. And v14 has enough drivers where the benefits of viper4android will be amplified across the...

    Did you ever find the u18s to sound veiled or even extremely veiled at times?

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    I can agree, there's alot of old tech even better than new tech. However, companies still need to keep up with the latest tech. It doesn't mean they have to get rid of the old stuff that's great, but they should give fans the option to choose. Moreover, I would love to hear a u18t or u18s...

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    I find 64 audio iems are usually more durable and i feel comfortable working out and running in them. I have some of the other iems you mentioned and they sound awesome but don't have the layering and details or soundstage or durability like u18t IMHO. But i agree, one might find that the...
