    1964 Ears V-6 with HIfiman 601

    Is this a decent pairing? I know the 601 has slightly rolled off treble and a generally warmer sound, and I'm fine with that. I'm also aware that some people seem to detect a slight noise on the 601 due to the NOS DAC; I'm also fine with that. My main concern is that the 601 apparently has a...

    New Hi-Fier Upgrading from S4i

    I am looking for something more balanced in terms of frequency range. Before S4is i used some Koss branded ones that i liked for about 50$ and their bass clarity (for 50$) sounded pretty good. I was looking at D2ks and maybe D5ks but I'm going by the general advice to invest in a "full" setup...

    REVIEW: HiFi ET MA9 - a new reference level DAP

              Higher end DAPs are popping up more frequently these days. There's the HiFiMAN HM-801 and HM-60x series, the iBasso DX100, iRiver AK100, Colorfly C4, and then the lesser known Chinese releases like the QLS QA350, iHiFi812 and iHiFi960. Obviously the demand exists for these...

The front board pieces LiPo connector and power button switch have...

    32GB Kingston SDHC Class 4 To Trade For HM-601 Compatible 32GB SDHC Card Or Micro SDHC Cards

    After a firmware update, I've discovered that my 16gb Duracell Micro SDHC card works fine, with an adapter, but the 32GB Kingston Class 4 SDHC card is still not being recognised, without being taken out and put in again, which is annoying the hell out of me.   I would like to swap this for...

    iPod 5.5g, Classic (current gen), HM601, or others in the $250 range

    So, the headphone out on my iPod Touch is going bad (left channel cuts out unless you apply pressure to the plug in a certain way) so I'm in the market for a new DAP. My first choice is the HM601, but my only concern is that it's too thick, almost twice as thick as an iPod, which would be...

    Music to Show off the HM-601

    Hi all,   Well my HM-601 should be with me today and after reading all the reviews I can't wait. I am little concerned a to how it will sound with my ACS T1 IEMs, as the 601 is described as warm and I guess my T1s could be described similarly(well by a nooby audiophile anyway). Does anyone...
