An unfortunate Hemp experience 🤨😒. While taking off the G-cushions to put on the F-cushions, the body of the right speaker housing split all the way around where the hemp is. I have already packed it for shipment to Grado Labs. It makes me wonder about using (compressed?) hemp as a dominant material for headphone speaker housing…🧐

Sorry to bother you again.
This morning I suddenly remember why my list are like this( listed 3 or 4 years ago).
There are only a little room left on my desk. So it needs to be less than 16cm or about 18*(22-30)cm.
Schiit lyr3 could be the perfect in size, sadly I can't get it in China.
I saw your guys talking about JDS element, how about it ?
or any other choice?
order from schiit.com? Schiit Hel 2 is little, powerfull and nice. all in one. perfect with grado

Sorry to hear that. Did you manage to take a photo before sending it off to grado. Never heard that happening before. And there are a few wooden options out on grado. I have seen the push in units starting to work loose where they glue in the speaker units even on a ps 1000. But you can normally just reglue and push back in. Not good if these new ones can split easy. And most people cant send them back .

Is this schiit Hel2? the little black one?
I can buy it online, but it will take an extra fee up to 200 USD to get it .......
This aftenoon I ordered a little Dot mk3. I found a way to lie the amp down on my poor little desk.
Now I need to find either a small dac or a bigger but thin dac......
Do dac influence sound a lot? Or mostly by amps?
For now I was using a cheap and old dac/amp combo similar price as topping amps. Maybe I can use it temporarily while I waiting for the new one.

I am from China and a Grado fan.

For many DAC/Amp were made in North Am and Eu, maybe you guys would have tried more choices.

I have rs1i, ps 500,Ps500e,Gh1,Gh2,do you have any recommendations for these.

I thought maybe it would be impossible to go along well with all these. The rs1i,ps500e and gh1 are my main force. And there are just a little room on my desk for the device, so plz DAC/AMP Combo device.

my thoughts are as follows, will these be a good choice?

1.hugo 2

2 Moon 230HAD

3 QUAD PA-ONE+

4 audiobyte black dragon(but it‘s no longer selling in China)
5.or other advices?

Not a native English speaker.if I write sth impolite, I don't mean it

Thanks
The Hugo2 is the best in this price range.

I use the Hugo2-2go with my PS500e on some walks in the park. Each time I am impressed that such a level of quality can be heard outside.
The level of subtlety on the inflections of the voices is very present.
At home, I also use bluetooth mode while watching TV and that is also a bonus. I have just acquired a Mojo2 but the Hugo2 will remain my companion when I want serious listening outside.

I suggest you to listen one before to fix your choice.
