    Ibasso DX90 or Fiio X3ii (Second Generation)

    I have both the Ibasso DX90 and Fiio X3 second generation.  I like both but prefer the sound on the DX and the UI/size on the X3.  While sound is the most important....I wonder if it is worth double the price.  Also I think that I may like the sound of the DX90 better because I know that "it...

    Sony NW-ZX1 128 gb vs. iBasso dx90

    I have the ibasso and i'm really satisfied. Value for money'wise - its truly a great bargain. I'm considering purchasing the sony ZX1 but i read it's cpu is kinda weak and will have trouble playing 24bit tracks. I use a Topping NX1 as an external amp so the power is less important. It seems to...

    Advice on tracing the hiss, please!

    Hello there! I recently purchased the soundtrack of 'Frozen' in 24/48 (beautiful music, if you ask me) and on my speakers it sounded nice, but the trouble began when I listened to it with my AKG K550 on my way to work. I do like it a little bit on the loud side and imagine my frustration when...

    HiFiMAN HE-500 = Waste of Money (and general discussion)

    I'm not an "audiophile". Let's start off by making that clear.   I just like music, like most people. However, unlike the majority of people nowadays, the quality of my music listening experience matters to me. I visit Head-Fi regularly and learn things everyday. I think I know enough by now...

    Thinksound Rain2 to pour in ears soon: Impressions and Discussions Thread

    Funny how things work out. Thinksound has been one of my favorite small earphone companies since they started putting out products about the time I became a member of the head-fi community.

    If I like the sound of Senn HD 25-1ii, which iem?

    Hi forum, I'm in the market for some IEMs and figured this would be the place to start. It's been a while since I used IEMs, as I've been using my Senn HD 25-1ii closed earphones for ages. I do like the neutral sound, though maybe they could be a tad warmer and have a tiny bit more bass. So...

    How to get the most natural, Brilliant and true to life sound from my ATH-M40X?

    They sound great, But it wouldnt harm to get a little more. I find when using EQ i raise up the high frequencies- But i don't like EQ, It almost always distorts something. I guess what i want is a more brilliant sound (I reaise the highs in the EQ) Natural and forward-That it won't sound...

    The DX90 by iBasso . . . Sound impressions . . . . . . . New Firmware, 2.5.1 . . .

    On turn on and turn off, there is a slightly audible click. This is the relay inside of the DX90 and normal.    So do batteries make a difference? Some say they hear a difference using the OEM Samsung battery for the S3. Opinions matter.    Can you improve what you hear by using better or...

    Trying to Remedy Ear "Fullness"

    Over the past few months I've been using my DX90 / ATH-M50x combo as a travel setup, and since I've been traveling quite a bit for work I've been listening to music through headphones more often than normal.  Unfortunately, I've experienced ear "fullness" (the only way I can describe it - the...

    A little confused over Amp/Dac combos.

    I'm a little confused over a purchase I've made and am looking for someone to explain it to me. Bear with me on this, over the years I've owned many different Iems, daps and portable Amps but never a DAC or DAC/amp combo. In the last couple of weeks I've bought a Sony PHA-2 amp/dac. I bought it...

    Apple MFI Pricing?

    I didn't really know where to put this since it originally related to my search for an iPhone DAC that would allow me to enjoy superior sound with my iPhone and not have a separate gadget for music (I subsequently ended up with a DX90 and love it!).   However, I've just noticed that on the...

    Issue with tag on DX 90, Help :)

    Hi all, I have a DX 90, and rid my CD's thru iTunes into AIFF files.  I like the player, the sound, battery life is ok, etc. My problem is I get a lot of "null" & "SD Card" displays on almost all of my songs.  I would say about 65-70 % do not show the artists name or album title.   And I...

    These Narmoo folk seem to be on a mission. A mission of greatness for the money and I have to say with each new introduction of their earphones the SQ of the earphones seems to be getting better and better yet the cost is laughably affordable. Introducing the newest earphone from Narmoo. The S1...
