Thanks a lot. I am still waiting on mine. Glad to know that the bass sounds a bit more controlled.
It won't make it a bright or light sounding headphone :ksc75smile:, the bass is still there, but indeed much more controlled and in balance. Just let us know after you've received it what your experience is.

From the eBay description: 2, this cable adapter is made with the Silver Plated Cable inside and made with the Braided cable outside,

Does this mean it is not silver core? That eould explain the price. I wonder how they would compare to the original copper core cable and even the silver one, from Meze.

Silver plated connection not a true silver core cable. My cable from Triton is a true silver core cable, I'm still not sold completely on Silver vs Copper. The treble appears to be more crisp but that could just be the 2 DACs in Balanced vs the 1 DAC in SE in my 300R

Which you like more for daily listening? I I has meze 99c as well and hiby R6 , Amiron is better?
R6 might not get Amiron loud enough, you'd probably need at least FiiO A5 or FiiO Q5 with AM05 to get them loud enough, although you might be listening far quieter than me...

For sonics,

They are almost nothing alike, Meze 99C is thick, bassy, warm, smooth, ClosedBack,

Amiron Home is soft, bass-tight, musical, brighter, open, OpenBack, Large and well-separated, natural instead of thick and warm

You will feel way less bass when going form 99C to Amiron, so if you prefer bass, then there are other headphones even from Beyerdynamic that serve that, Amiron Home really is ever so slightly above neutral in terms of bass :)

As he said, two very different headphones. I run both balanced from my 300R

The Amiron is no slouch though with bass, give it some power and it can produce quite a bit

Agreed, but it never is a bass-heavy headphone kinda like 99C, it stays within what I'd call tight and somewhat neutral.

Well, just ordered a pair of the silver 99C's and they will be here tomorrow. Curious how they will sound compared to my M1060's and HE-400i's even though they are closed.

I had the 400i, sold them. Good phones but I finally realized that the planar sound just isn't for me apparently.

How would you compare the 400i's to the 99C's?

Can't remember much of the 400i. I do know that of course the 99C has more bass, I needed Sheepskin pads to get some bass out of the 400i
