    Why are there no AAC transmitters?

    Just came from the thread on the newly released BTA30 Pro, which supports AAC RX but not AAC TX. I've been looking for a TX alternative for AAC transmission for a while, preferably one that also supports AptX LL. I'm using the AirFly at the moment, which supports both but connects via a...

    XLR Switch 3 in 1 out

    Hello Head-Fi'ers, i am thinking about getting a Topping A90 for my RME ADI-2 DAC FS and maybe 1-2 other DACs (Denafrips ARES II and Topping D90SE) to use with this AMP. Since i don't want to switch the XLR cables, i need something like an XLR switch. I could get the Topping Pre90 with...

    What would you say the best virtual surround software is?

    The best virtual surround I've ever heard remains the Sennheiser GSX 1000 but I have long since moved on to greener pastures when it comes to my computers audio. What would you say is the best virtual surround software currently available for Windows? For gaming rather than music. I know some...

    question: amt vs planar in pure speed?

    i know that it's all about implementation, but just like a normal dynamic driver can't reach the speed and details of an electrostatic, i've been wondering which one between a planar and AMT has more potential as a driver.

    Planning on getting the Zeus, but don’t wanna switch from my aune b1s. Will it be able to drive the Zeus at 115db (drumming requires high volume, especially cus it’s an open back) on class a positive?

    TWS questions

    Hi, I'm planning to buy some TWS earphones as I'm always using my xioami mi pro HD at work and the cable is always annoying me. The thing is that I don't know what audio quality I can wait from TWS earphones. I also have some takstar pro 82 and I love the sound of them in the mid bass position...

    Tube Amp and MDR-Z1R

    Hi all, New to the forum, but have been into audio for some time (though only made more significant investment into it recently). I’ve been wanting to experience a more “tubey” sound, and wanted to get some opinions on whether I even have the right headphones to go into that. I own a pair of...

    SHP9500 vs. K701/K702 vs. AD900/ADG1X vs. AD700X

    Hi everyone! Which of these 5 headphones/headsets are the best for FPS competitive gaming? - AKG K701 - AKG K702 - Philips SHP9500 - AD900X/ADG1X (have been in talks with Audio Technica and ADG1X is confirmed to be a AD900X with a microphone attached to it. :) - AD700X (edited) I don't mind...

    Audirvana settings and a question regarding DSD

    Hi. I configured my A+ SoX settings using people's settings from across the internet. But there's one thing none of them mentioned: The delta-sigma DSD filter type (the one with letters and order (eg. A (5th order))). 1) What is the best delta-sigma filter setting? Does it do anything drastic...

    Are bluetooth headsets today able to to do stereo sound and microphone communication simultaneously?

    It seems I can only post here. I have a bluetooth headset and when I play games with it, it can either produce stereo sound or allow microphone use, but cannot do them both at the same time. I found this post:

    Question about the OneOdio A70

    Hi everyone, I've been thinking of buying the OneOdio A70, but it'd have to ship from very far away and the shipping costs are a little high. The OneOdio A70 has a feature where you can use a wire to plug it into another headphone, my question is, can this connect only to another OneOdio or to...

    How should I route my setup?

    Hi! I just received my ESP-95X, which is a fantastic pair of electrostatic cans powered by an energizer with a 3.5mm input and only one RCA input, which is problematic. It's problematic because I have two sources--a turntable and a Schiit Modi 2 Uber, both of which produce RCA outputs. Why not...

    Questions about digital coax/optical

    Hi I use a mojo as a portable DAC. Unfortunately for some reason it's breaking down crazy fast and the micro USB input won't last much longer. Durability is awful. Got an early model I think. USB needs to be angled just right and even then I need to put a lot of force on it for it to not...

    New to remixing, any help?

    So I've been lately on doing some remixes, like 20 or so but never actually get to end them. Not until this last one:!Wbg03Yaa!7rYT_cwdllbQ7rOLW4rGppZ1R2oBpM3yrRyBW3j84l0 So my question is: what do you think of it? P.S.: I know I could just upload the file to Head-Fi but it...

    NVX XPT100 - how to fit replacement earpads?

    Hi, I've bought a pair of replacement ComfortMax angled earpads. How do I install them? I thought they'd come with the plastic 'ring' (more of an oval) that I can just install by twisting the old earpads off, put the new ones in place, then twist them to lock in place; but these are just the...

    Is it safe to leave my portable headphone amp plugged in?

    Sorry if this isn't the right forum to post this. I couldn't figure if there was anywhere better. I've recently purchased a used Oppo HA-2 for use at my office desktop and for when travelling. Considering that plugging into a PC for audio input also charges the device, would it be wise to leave...

    Does lowering DAC volume compress music?

    My hypothesis is this: Let's say that my DAC normally outputs a signal which can reach a maximum voltage of 3 volts. This way, I understand that the DAC 'represents' the signal's dynamic range with a bandwidth of 3 volts. Now I lower the volume of the DAC (either through hardware or software)...

    LEAR BD4.2 vs Shure SE846? +1 'subwoofer' or +2 Dynamic?

    As title suggests, wondering if anyone owns both pairs and can comment on how they compare. Lear Audio's BD4.2 (Custom) and Shure's SE846 (Universal) Pricepoints are similar and they both have got their special thing going for the bass. Shure's got their 'true subwoofer' driver and the BD4.2...

    As the title suggests, I'm trying to identify the sound signature from the relative response graphs. Both graphs are for iem's produced by the same company and same product line. I'm essentially looking for a bass elevated iem with relatively good mids and highs. Can anyone kindly help in...

    What makes the price of a DAP?

    (I don't know if this is the right place for such a thread, if not feel free to move it) So, today I was looking for great DAP in the sub-300$ range, and I ran into a review about the Cowon Plenue V which stated it was using a CS43131 chip (a DAC + amp combo). As written in this same review...

    Open back headphones around $400?

    Hello, I'm looking forward to buying an open-back headphone, and I can't decide which one to buy. I have listened to the sr325e and I really like them due to very clear mids and treble. I do not like the Sennheiser headphones because they do sound a bit "boring". The HE400i is on sale at a...

    Why and 'how' do people use digital audio players?

    Ok so I just went to a local audiophile store in Singapore. I noticed while I was trying out their headphones A LOT of people were trying out their digital audio players. The only thing I can guess why people use digital audio players is that they have a better DAC and would most likely be able...
