Separate names with a comma.
If they aren't better than the Orpheus 2, MD better PAY me to use these headphones!
I hope Fostex brings out a new Th900 that is flatter and keeps the old th900 too.
What in the world is going on here?
People get way too caught up in the 'it costs more so must be better'
Here I am listening to these $60 Grado SR60e's I just got off massdrop and think they're 90%+ of any Grado I've heard/own.
Hey guys, can anyone make a portable DAC/AMP recommendation? Sources: iphone6 & macbook pro.
Headphones and IEM: Fostex TH-X00 and Sony XBA-Z5.
Main requirements: portability, direct line in (lighting port) on the iphone 6 (preferably without needing to use a CCK), and of course enough sound quality improvement to make it worth carrying another device along with me. I have itunes Music, but if it makes more sense to switch to spotify or tidal to go with an android based DAP I'm not against that.
Goals, to be able to make the most out of the headphone and IEM i'm using. I prefer a neutral / transparent rendition of the headphone/iem signature
So far on the radar are Cozoy Aegis, and Oppo HA-2... potentially the Sony PHA-1A but I've never used a DAC/AMP before with my headphones so I want to make sure that it's worth the extra money.
Mine came in too. The SR60e is disgustingly good for its retail price
While not familiar with their current lineup, I found an incredible increase in clarity playing through fiio's Eo7K using an LOD as opposed to coming straight out of my iPod touch 3rd gen. I can really recommend their products, as it felt solid and was completely metal.
The THX00 was unanimously well received in the Seattle meet today.
"They hit it out of park. "
"Can't wait to get mine."
Really want to hear more comparisons to the D7000. Also for those that have heard the 600 & 900. How would you rank the D7000 between the Foxtex's versions?
has anybody compared to the th600?
I was able to a/b the d5k and thx00 for about 20m during the meet, I'll write more tomorrow or later tonight between the two.
The MD discussion board is quite ridiculous and, at times, amusing. I'm not sure what I'd think about the hi-fi/head-fi/audiophile community if this drop was my first experience and interaction. Luckily, you and a few others on the MD thread are keeping it real and interjecting some reason. Keep up the good words and reasonable thoughts.
They better be. It's a $600 headphone retuned to be more neutral and audiophile. It better be "out of the park" with it at $400
Awesome, and good to hear! I'm really looking forward to receiving mine.
On another note, my wife and I are hoping to move back to Seattle (or Portland) fairly soon. We relocated to Pittsburgh for grad school and such, but it's time to move back. I'll be sure to attend some meet's after we find our way back. We're really missing the PNW!
Looking forward to further impressions.
how big are the Seattle meets? Worth traveling down fro Vancouver for?
