    Hello
    Does all of you listening Meze noir with stok big pads? or someone prefer small second pads?

    I notice that stock pads more bassy , small pads more neutral.
    Bit for me i thing second small pads a boring. stock bug pads much more fun

    Using the USB DAC function overrides the Steinburg. Connecting an AUX cord from the hp out of the Steinburg to your FiiO will make the FiiO an amp. There are upgrades for sure for both, though I haven't heard either of those pieces, I'm sure it would be marginal.

    Burn In is simply just using the headphones so the drivers loosen up. You can use normal music and/or something like the JLab Audio Burn In track.

    Sorry but I don't see how I can connect them together, my UR22 is connected to my KRK monitors so the line output is already used.
    Anyway, i primarily use my UR22 for my monitors and switch to the FiiO when I want to listen with my 99 Classics.
    By the way, how would you compare the 99 Classics to the Fidelio X2 ?
    I was hetitating between these two headphones.

    For anyone interested, I have my 99c for sale with an extra SP-OFC cable terminated with a 4.4 balanced jack.
    I believe they are the first edition with the smaller pads as my box is very different to those I see being sold now.

    The 98
    99s are much more alive to my ears. More resolving, better dynamics, better presented mids. More capable of picking up artifacts, and just more engaging for me. The X2 was less warm, bordering on a darker sound from my experience. They do have a considerably wider Soundstage though. The Classics are far and away my favorite closed back can for this rock n roll metal maniac. And I've owned and tried several at and below the 300 dollar price point.

    Well, we're not into describing our products as upgrades of other manufacturers' products. But there are many happy iFi+Meze users here, someone should help you out shortly.

    Yes, I prefer the 99C over the X2. My X2 actually hardly get used. It was one of those gears I had to buy to try. I like it but doesn't get much use. May put it up for sale.

    Nope. 4th generation pads.

    I would say so, yep.

    Bought the small pads from an official retailer in Spain, they are exactly like the big ones, only that smaller obviously, to my ears no big change in how they sound when driven by an Astell Kern Kahn.

    It's SO strange.
    If people want original 1st pads why they made NEW original pads that different from 1st version of meze 99 classics pads???
    So strange!
    And we have hot and 1st version small pads on old meze 99 classics, and NEw version of small pads in package of NoIR

    No one knows. It's an unanswered decision by Meze audio. A secret.

    My god, the balanced Hiby R3 and Noir combination is almost next to impeccable. I was thinking of upgrading to the Fiio M11, but why when I'm perfectly content with my set up? :o2smile:

    Solid for the money, isn't it :ksc75smile: ?

    It's quite amazing that such a DAP can be had for its price.

    I’ve just bought the classic 99 to pair with my iPad Pro which seems to have a decent dac within. Out of the headphone socket it sounds pretty good - slightly dark in the high frequencies but a great headphone for mp3 quality. My other cans are Stax 009S so bear that in mind. Excellent build quality for the price too. There’s a Canjam London in a few weeks so I’ll look at the upgrade cable as well.
