    DAP's sound signatures just like Headphones are subjective and highly individualized.

    Ahhh, he sees the light. Now you must listen to them. Try it with the Kahn. Tks.

    The iPhone sounds incredibly good for the low cost of the dac cable, but the top Daps do sound better. I hate to admit it, but Wata was correct when he told me this. What is extremely close in my opinion is the Dragonfly Red. Allot of bang for the buck with this product. Try it out. You can get it from amazon and return it if you do not like it. Tks.

    I don't have a way to listen to them right now. If I am at CanJam NY, then maybe I will get a chance.

    My brother uses an I phone coupled with the dragon fly red

    I was stupefied
    Certainly made a believer out of me

    I'm getting driver flex/that crinkling sound whenever I insert my Khans, should I be worried?

    I still think the ES100 is hard to beat. Use your phone as a source and you get great sound quality with the convenience of only carrying one device which can do everything, it even has a mic in it for calls!

    My favourite DAP is the AK SR15 personally - extremely neutral (maybe slightly mid-centric), very small (easily fits in my pocket along with my phone or wallet) and pretty decent battery life too. Quite lightweight as well and extremely durable. The pairing with the Katana is goddamn exceptional, I'm listening to the two as we speak and I am melting...

    Speaking of which I'd love to write another 3 paragraphs praising the Katana once again but i must hold back as I've done this numerous times on this thread :D

    I get that too from time to time

    I have also been meaning to listen to the Katana with the SP1000, but I will only be able to test it out next month... Sounds like an amazing pairing though, since the 1000 is like a SR15 on steroids

    Currently looking at some options from Plussound for an upgrade cable as I really want to see how far I can push the performance of the Katana. A pure purple from the Poetic series with the rose gold split and a Katana at the other end would look royal AF.

    Add: I will also be testing the Katana with my RME ADI 2 DAC in a few weeks and I absolutely can't wait for that, as the RME is hands down the best DAC I've tried with any IEM (sounds better to me than the AK TOTLs and anything by Cayin, which is too warm for my taste anyhow)

    Is there any way to minimize this? Would this end up damaging the IEMs? Love the Khans btw. Good to have something different from the 64audio house sound.

    I minimize it by trying to keep my ear canal wide while I settle the ear tip/ear canal where I want it

    Then allow the ear to close around the ear tip

    Kinda tedious

    But the the juice that a dynamic driver produces is worth the squeeze

    Your brother is who told me about it coupled with the KaiserTone app on the iPhone to play hidef recordings. I still use the N8 most of the time, but that setup is awfully good. Tks.
