  waiting the two pin connectors to finsh silver detachable cable for my hd 25 :D (location of the female jack 3.5 on the cup side is temporary)  
 
Has anyone compared the HD25 with the stock cable against the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 On-Ear's?

T1 gen 2, PONO, balanced cable (required for power), sounds amazing but not for the bus!

First post.



Subpar phone camera and skills.
Sony ZX1 >> Fitear MH-335DW (not mine lol)
Pretty spectacular sounding, regardless of the price, in my opinion.

Not that great for use on the bus, but perfectly portable for use around the house:

I only use my CIEMs with the AK on the bus, full size cans are too cumbersome when I'm out and about.

Agreed! I don't even want to bring closed headphones out :p IEMs are just so much easier.
 
Anyways, happy Sunday, fellas!

Been testing out the Shanling M2. It's okay for the price. Very, very dark sounding.

That's because of the "impedance mismatch" with the Angie. The Angie is a multi-driver in-ear with varying output impedance (read: it's very likely that the impedance in the treble is clearly lower than in the mids and lows, based on your description) and the M2 has got a quite high output impedance (I calculated something around 7 Ohms) -> frequency response output gets altered (the way the alteration looks like always depends on the headphone's specific impedance response).
