Good afternoon, I agree with Mikey99 regarding the cipher cable, but the “clearly inferior” comment is a bit harsh. I agree that using a good android device and a better amp; I have used the Centrance HiFi M8 and the iFi micro iDSD and they were better. But for me this is a portable/travel solution. I have a good home set up for listening at home when I need to use headphones, otherwise I use speakers. Now for something really cool. I had some custom inserts made for a set of Stax SR-003. I still have the inserts and they mate right up to the LCD i4 nozzles. Gives a bit of isolation and they sound luscious! I also can forego the hooks, broke 4 so far. Right now?
