Today I purchased schiit magni & modi combo and I am so happy that I did.
Neutral to a little cold sounding schiit combo balances out with warm sounding r70x and it sounds much better than fiio e17.
It's a completely different experience.
I am looking forward to try other amp/dac in the near future.
I have a question tho: do you guys EQ for these headphones?? and what are other amp/dac you would recommend for r70x?
On EQ, earfonia has already did EQ setting recommendation simple 3dB up on highs if you are listening to classical music. I did it and works very fine for me.
Please read earfonia's review sound quality section again.
I'm happy without EQ for the most part. For amps I only have portables, but find the Objective2, C5 (Cayin), E12A and Aune B1 all drive the R70x very, very well. Would like to pick up a desktop, but for now am satisfied.
I shall try that! thank you
thank you for your recommendations!
I was actually thinking of getting O2 except that I heard they sound very similar to what I have (magni) and it costs more.
Not having tried the Magni, I can't comment on that. One thing that I like about the O2 is that it has a battery, so is "transportable."
Good to know! Thanks for your feedback!
Yes, when paired with matching amp, R70x performs much better.
It is quite rare for a headphone with such a flat and neutral tonality. But still speed and detail can be improved from R70x. But tonal balance wise it is top notch.
When I review AT-HA5050H, and pair it with T1, in my opinion that combo T1 + HA5050H outperforms R70x, but we are talking of a $ 7k combo here.
Agree with your statement:
"General Sound Signature
To echo the other reviews: these are very neutral-sounding cans. That is, there’s no particular frequency range that seems either pushed or recessed. I’m really looking forward to seeing good measurements on this because the impression I have is that the frequency response is very flat. Not bright, not dark, just neutral. Well, maybe just a small touch of warmth, but it’s pretty subtle. I’m very familiar with the Audio-Technica V-shaped “house sound” and these do not have that. It’s a whole new sound signature for AT."
Very nice review, thanks!
She's calm cause even she knows I'm hard to impress.
I want a HA5050H for my T1~~~but too expensive...my wallet...oh well...lol
So i have been using r70x with magni/modi combo for a couple of days now. I really like the sound except for some songs, it sounds a lil too bright and can get grainy at times. Should I go ahead and try Vali?
I recommend to try EQing to compensate your R70x bright treble before you buy a new amp.
Using r70x < mogami cables < Audio-Gd nfb28 (2014) hmmm love it ;D
I am really new to headfi and never tried EQing. Could you briefly explain how I should adjust my EQ?
Thank you so much!
