    Cmoy OPA2227 Bass Boost Opinions?

    Hi all, I'm new to the Head-Fi community and was after a bit of help in choosing my first portable amp. I've narrowed it down to a Fiio E5 or a pre-made OPA2227 Cmoy. Would this Cmoy (link below) perform better than an E5? I'm afraid $50 is my price limit otherwise I would be buying...

    Fiio E5 or Gary's PA2V2?

    Hello, first of all: yes, i have used the search function but I could not find a thread that compares these two models, so here I go: I have just come home from demoing Grado's SR60 & SR80s and enjoyed listening to the SR80 far more than the 60s which may be a result of the ear cups but i...

    Fiio E5 light flashing?

    So I picked up one of these to try, but on the first time charging, the red light keeps flashing and won't stop. I know the red light is supposed to be completely off when it's done charging, so I'm wondering if I should return it or not, or if others have had the same problem. Thanks...

    Hi, Recently I received the AKG K518 headphones. I have a  COWON D2 mp4 which the headphones should be connected to, but I feel the sound is weaker than usual and sounds a bit "flat", but on the other hand when I try the headphones with my father's  headphones amplifier, tha Pro ject Head...

    AD700; To amp, or not to amp: that is the question.

    I am set on getting the AD700's. I know people say they don't have to be amped, but I also hear that they lack bass and some amps can help that. I will be running them straight from my headphone jack on my Ipod or my computer, but if you guys think it is worth the extra money for the quality, I...

    M-Stage vs EF5 for D2000s?

    I've been researching an amp to drive D2000s and looks like narrowed it down to these two. Couldn't find any posts that compare the two though, so has anyone had experience with both? Or should I still look at something else entirely?

    Amp for Atrio M5s

    I had a Fiio 5 but ended up giving it to my nephew. I found that it did add a bit of improvement to the Atrio M5s but not too much out of my ipod. I was wondering if any lower end (100$ max) amps could add to the SQ of these phones out of an ipod? Or is it not even worth it? These phones are...

    Hi guys I play on xbox360 and I bought a few days ago this set:   - Mixamp astro - Audiotechnica AD700 - Fiio E5   I'm very happy with this set if I play online games, but I don't feel myself enough "inside the game" if I play single player games (like fallout, dead rising, alan...

    Will be awhile until amping... 250ohm or 600ohm with the DT990? I only own a FiiO E5 right now...

    I really want the DT990. REALLY bad now... But, I am also REALLY struggling about the decision to go with the 250ohm instead of the 600ohm. At this point, I just don't know if I can get away with spending $250 on an amp. I have a wife and a little girl - there exist other priorities than a $250...

    Fiio E5 or E7 with a Cowon S9 + Soundmagic PL50...... a good combination?

    I use a Cowon S9 + Soundmagic PL50 and for the most part love the sound combination. Unfortunately i do find that this combination doesnt always have enough bass or warmth for certain types of music. Would adding an amp add a bit of warmth back into the mix? The E5 or E7 sounds as if it...

    How bad would a Fiio E5 be compared to. . .

    A budget DIY amp?   Reason why I am asking is I don't have that strong of an oAMP on my soundcard or on my ipod, and I've heard any amp is better then no amp. I'm not above doing a DIY but I'd like to keep the price down, this will only be driving entry level 201's and RX700's currently and...

    FiiO E5 USB Interference?

    Hi all, I'm having a fairly annoying issue with my FiiO E5 - it hisses and almost squeals loudly while it's plugged into my USB port (charging) at the same time as I'm using it. As soon as I unplug it from the USB port and use it straight from its battery, it's practically silent between...
