I presume the double negative means you're going to pm me the detailed internal spec sheet?
Point being, we shed some light on the circuitry of specific products and EarBuddy isn't one of them. Nice try, though!
Just have a listen to EarBuddy!
But in long it means using a 3.5mm to 2.5mm balanced adaptor, which adds another adaptor to the chain... An earbuddy with 2.5mm balanced on each end would be very popular
Just buy the IEMmatch. I really can't imagine that the market for balanced justifies the effort for ifi. Maybe I'm wrong. But we're already talking about a very low priced niche product.
Yes, we are.
Of course we always explore our posibilities and move accordingly, One never knows what the future holds.
Earbuddy is awesome when using it with amps that hiss with sensitive IEM's/earbuds
That was our goal. Enjoy!
In my case my amp was too powerful For my SE846 I was at the very bottom of the volume Knob With very little play on my magni 3. So I picked this up About a month ago And it is The best $20 ever spent.
Has anyone compared these to the UE Buffer Jack? It's double the price, and was wondering if there it is different by principle.
At a quick glance:
UE Buffer Jack ~4 ohms output impedance (and I can't find its attenuation factor)
iFi Ear Buddy ~1.5 ohms output impedance (~15dB attenuation)
(and iEMatch is ~1.0/2.5 ohms OI, ~12/24 dB attenuation)
Just tried EarBuddy with Andromeda. Without EarBuddy my HRT iDPS had way to much hiss and volume was on the bottom. Mojo had mild annoying hiss and at bottom of volume control. Vali 2 was not usable due to volume and hiss. Straight out of iPhone SE worked fine except I needed more volume control.
With EarBuddy all of them have the volume control I need and none of them have any hiss at all.
So far impressed. I am not hearing any degradation of sound quality. I would like to know if anyone else with EarBuddy experience hears any degradation of sound quality.
We're glad that you like it!
Is the earbuddy attenuation similar to the High setting or the Ultra setting on the IEMatch?
Hi, the restoration of bits is not in specs of iEMatch. Does it mean, that this feature is specific to EarBuddy only?
My understanding is that neither the IEMatch or Earbuddy "restore" lost bits as such, they just allow outputs with digital volume control to be run closer to full capacity, which prevents the bit decimation occurring at the source end in the first place.
