New Head-Fier
Pros: 1) Soundstage - biggest I've heard, even if we're talking about using DSPs
2) Transparency - nothing is bloated or recessed
3) Bass control, treble control, basically - every sound is in its place
4) Manageable power draw from phone, WAY less than that of iBasso DC01
5) "Modular" design - you can choose any cable you want
6) Separation - every little sound just flows into your head without any effort, bad masters sound even worse, close to unenjoyable
7) Price - I mean, 100$?
Cons: 1) No signal validation - you will hear everything your mobile phone modem will try to do if your signal level is low
2) Boring as hell - if your headphones are, there are no character to this device
3) Soundstage can make you seasick, and that is not a joke, I've never been seasick in my whole life, but some badly (not just unmastered or semi-mono) mastered songs were a challenge
4) Separation - can dissect some tracks so much, that they will sound absolutely disassembled and disconnected
Preferable scenario - dynamic driver headphones/earphones.
I've had Cayin N3, iBasso DC01 and this thing.
This thing is now my daily driver.
Can get pretty intense in soundstage/separation/imaging...
