    Headphone/DAP popping noise?

    I have recently become concerned due to a popping noise from my setup (EM-U Rosewood wBlack Dragon cord/Cowon P1), similar to the staticy noise your headphones make when you insert them into a jack. It is very quiet and short, and is only audible in low volume, but it doesn't appear to affect...

    FiiO M3K review

    About one month ago I ordered a FiiO M3K off Amazon. Yet I have noted lot's of people have said the ui is bad and laggy I beg to differ. My review is lag-free and easy to navigate the only time I get lag is when playing 20 min + dsd songs. The build quality is great the only MINOR issue is...

    Which way is better when I connect both my Fiio A3 and A5 amp to my Cowon Plenue D??

    Hi there, So I want to know which way would give more sound, power etc: 1) Should I connect my A3 1st to my PD and then the A5 to my A3? Or 2) Should I connect my A5 1st to my PD and then the A3 to my A5? Because when I tried the number 2 way it "seemed" like I got more power but wasn't...

    Recommendation Needed on DAP

    Hi, I'm relatively new here. Been following reviews closely for DAP and IEM. I currently own FIIO X1 and RHA 750i. I also have Harman Kardon and Edifier speakers setup at home. My current music collection has mostly 320 kbps MP3 and I'm gradually upgrading to FLAC and ALAC. I have around...

    Need help deciding on a DAP.

    I think I've narrowed it down to the Sony Walkman NW-A35 and the Cowon Plenue D. I originally wanted the Cowon due to its apparently better overall sound quality and battery life. However, I hear there is a file limit on the Cowon that limits it to about 16,000 files and 8,000 folders with a...

    Im thinking of buying a DAP and over-ear headphones. I was first intrested in Pioneer XDP-30R but then i read in this forum that many people thought the volume was to low on Pioneers DAP´s. And then i read that EU had some law that the volume on DAP´s must be limited. I like to listen to music...

    ibasso dx80 vs fiio x5 3rd gen

    Hi everyone trying to decide between the ibasso dx80 and the fiio x5 3rd gen. From what i can tell the fiio seems to have a better ui and i think firmware in general however the ibasso is a bit better on battery life. The sound production seems to be pretty much only subjective but as someone...

    Great DAPs for 500 - 700$ (doesn't matter if it's desktop or portable)

    I was going to get a new DAP and my budget is around 500-700$, though I don't know where to exactly start, I just need a great DAP to use simply for listening. Though I don't mind if it had extra features such as a built in amp or DAC or it being desktop or portable. Also it'd be great for an...
