I bought this Cayin N3 in Europe, where its still not easy to find.. I'm from Portugal and bought it from a Spain online store. Now, i had this DAP for a week now, and its been a disappointment at most. Right on day one i found that this DAP sounded a bit "recessed" in the treble section and it sounds like a very thin membrane exists between me and the sound. It lacks sparkle a lot, and that makes it seen like everything is mostly muffed and it makes it sound not airy at all making it seem almost "unreal". I don't know if everything is ok with my Cayin N3 but i find listening to my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 or even my OnePlus One much more enjoyable because theres no sparkle in the N3. I own a xDuoo xd-05 DAC&Amp and its known for being a bit sparkly maybe a bit in excess but although they share the same DAC chipset, i'm not even comparing with it, i'm comparing it mostly with my Galaxy DAP and my smartphones and tablets that the N3 was supposed to replace most of the time. Is there something wrong with my N3? It has good mids, good instrument separation, but it lacks sparkle and liveness and some sounds sound a bit distorted like snares and hi hats that sound kinda horrible. I want a DAP with a neutral sig thats more analytical and i didn't found that on the N3. Maybe my N3 is damaged? i don't know.. Gear used with the N3: Sennheiser HD598SE, Macaw GT100, Vsonic VSD3s, XiaoMi Piston v2, XiaoMi Piston Hybrid, VJJB V1s, SoundMagic E10.
