    Headphones to match Hifiman HM-602

    I recently got the HM-602 and I have sold out almost all my portable gear. I just find the sound of this dap to be simply great! The analogue-like sound of the non oversampling td1543 dac chip is just what I have been looking for. I enjoy it very much with Yuin G1A. This is my favourite. The 150...

    Great service for Hifiman 602

    Just broke the display glass on my 602, mailed the manufacturers in China, got great attention and received a free pane a few days after. This is how business is made!

    What Hifiman IEM to Hifiman 601?

    I have a Hifiman 601 and want IEM to use with it. Is there anyone who have tested different Hifiman IEM with 601? I use Grado SR 80 today and really like the open airy warm sound that combo gives.   There is no hifiman dealer where I live, so I cant listen to them. Hoping for your help.

I read some where that it takes a 15V battery, so I bought one on Ebay, but it does not work for some reason. Can someone let me know the specification...

    Any great portable digital players?Just got SONY EX1000, but also got frustrated.

    I just got EX1000 by SONY. It seems the majority that owns EX1000 doesn't use Ipod Classic to pair them. Ipod Classic really can't drive EX1000 very well, maybe only up to 50%? But this pair sounds no good. Singers' voice is awkward in some points; sounds go very awkward when i play some...

    HiFiMan 602

    Hello,   I recently ordered a HiFiMan 602 on Amazon in the US (shipped from local store).  When I got the box I noticed that it didn't have a USB cable and the AC adapter was for Japan.  I am a little concerned that this is not the version intended for the US and may be an older batch or is...
