    saw this product few months ago on our australian dealer facebook page here is the full specs. https://www.facebook.com/earspantech/posts/416985999818143 it does have apt-X adaptive but i don't think its Sony hi-res certified like on that alibaba link in the video. the mifo S specs...

    Oriveti OV800 and O800 IEMs - The official thread

    How do the Oriveti compare to the moondrop line? i've tried the O800 and O400 the mids of the O800 are tuned very well, forward, lush and vocals sounds real but i feel the sub bass and the treble needed some boosting for extra detail. O400 just sounds thin with less resolution compared to it. i...

    what tips are you using? did you get the foam tips from Earspan? they changed the sound signature of the N10 pro quite a bit. my initial review of the N10 pro was similar to yours with bass lacking. but their sound stage is not just 3d warping around the head but wide as in vocals etc are...

    ANC on the N10 Pro isn't the best. I rarely use it as i don't travel much those days due to all the lockdowns. It cancels out mid to lower frequencies well enough but leaving a metallic sounding after effect of the outside noise. i've compared it with the BOSE QC it has the best ANC for TWE...

    Haven't heard the N10 Plus so didn't comment on it. The price difference is a no brainer if they sound the same. They are using the same drivers.

    I bought the sony xm3 when its first released. sounded a lot better than my Jabra 65t at the time and that was 2 yrs ago. I personally didn't like the XM3 sound. Just didn't have the clarity. N6 pro has a intimate sound to them because of the forward warm vocals. n10pro sounds totally different...

    i think you might have gotten the older N10Pro with connectivity issues. they did a recall on it. luckily mine had no issues with connectivity. i'm gonna pre-order the wf1000xm4 and compare it with the N10 pro. Its still king of sound stage for me.

    Gustard H16

    I think it might be due to marketing. the Gustard brand seems to sell better than the Topping stuff on Chinese ecommerce sites especially the higher end DACs. I don't think they are doing aggressive marketing here or paying more "shills" ;P than Topping.

    MQA Deep Dive - I published tracks on Tidal to test MQA

    by that logic we don't need consumer law. as long as one like a product its all that counts. its all about "ME" and how "I feel". doesn't matter if a company is committing fraud/scam or having a negative social impact. people here can't openly criticise it because you like the product...

    MQA Deep Dive - I published tracks on Tidal to test MQA

    great video and effort with your testing! amazing work. more people needs to know about the MQA bs. just gotten back into headphones after 7-8yrs happy with my rig and i nearly got sucked into buying a DAC with all those logos MQA, DSD, Hi Res formats thinking I'm paying extra for future...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    I personally don't find Arya bright. far from it. the treble is toned down and slightly rolled off on the top. it really depends on which Cans you previous own and compared it to. A bright headphones would be something like the HD800s and K1000 with super high resolution that pairs really well...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    Yea i heard the H16 is a warmer sounding amp with heaps of power. do you power yours with the balanced out put? the D50s isn't a balanced dac though. That's the reason i'm swapping it with the Bifrost.

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    i'm settling on a dac/amp build for the Arya and willing to stretch my budget. i've settled on a Bifrost 2 for the dac but unsure if i should get the Gustard H16 or the Topping A90. any one tried both? i find the Arya tad warmer so i prefer slightly more detail.

    Hifiman Ananda

    got my Arya and were able to AB with the Ananda. yea its in a different league especially the 3d soundstage (no foam padding needed) and i'm just using the A50s Amp which is not enough to power them correctly with out a balanced cable. If i get my hands on a He6se i'll definitely see which i...

    Hifiman Ananda

    Had my Ananda for a few days now. Only did a initial listing session its not even close been in the same league to my K1000 setup that's been in storage. i'll burn it in for a few more days. Is re-cabling recommended with the Ananda? does it make a big difference?

    Hifiman Ananda

    What do you mean by that? micro as in tube rolling? i'll get this amp and the topping D50s see which sound signature i prefer.

    Just an update on the Nuarl N10 Pro. The retailer has sent me a set of foam eartips yesterday (fantastic service). It fixed the bass problem for me. as i mentioned in my previous N10 review that the Nuarl memory foam eartips seems to work best but still lacking bass. The stem of the earbuds is...

    My wife bought them because of the form factor and pocketability, she doesn't care about SQ. initially my impressions are they have less clarity and sound stage then the N6 Pro but i played around with the USB Audio Player app yesterday to see if i could get more detail by lower the bass. i was...

    I used the Bose QC extensively today for 2-3hrs and spent around 30mins or so A/B testing it against the Nuarl N10 Pro. My setup is USB Player Pro on TIDA with bit perfect out put setting. The Bose QC feels bass heavy and the bass bleeds into the mids colouring the sound. It sounds like a 15"...

    Hey guys, just want to share the Nuarl App as there is a few questions regarding the selections (see attached pic). The selection is pretty limited and the App is pretty useless IMO. Its also buggy with the ANC mode i mentioned previous when you set it to "High" it removes all Bass from your...

    My Nuarl N10 Pro arrived few days ago. was surprised my local dealer in Australia stocked them on Jap release date. got it the next day matching the YEN retail price. Not sure if other dealers have them in stock but you can find the Aus dealer link on the Nuarl dealer list. Didn't have much...
