    LOL, plus they bought my desktop amp too:open_mouth: I’m still more budget than anything else, these just passed thru in a mini tour. I resisted at first and then decided to see what all the hoopla was about.

    So far I am loving it. I had the original when they first came out. From my own memory it would be impossible to give a comparison. I got these because of the ergonomic shell the first Layla were like Frankenstein bolts coming out of my ears. I could never achieve a seal and the weight was too much. When I would fiddle with them enough to actually achieve a seal, I would lose the seal in minutes. I found my self fiddling with them more than anything.

    The Aion is comfortable and I achieve a seal easily each time. The sound is top tier all of the way. It is a signature that is really checking my boxes.

    How does the Shanling M5s pair with your CFA SOLARIS?
  7. fokta
    the appropriate answer will be in this impression

    short point M5s pair with Solaris, IMO:
    - Solaris with Shanling M5s, Bright sound sig compare to DX221mk2(New FW) neutral tends to bright. without CA custom eartip
    - If you get good seal or use custom eartip like me, somehow the Bass, mid bass & Sub bass : Weighted, enough punch and detail. (yeah, that's custom eartip make Bright DAP may have Bass).
    - better manage a bit of Hiss then DX221mk2.
    - Soundstage, and micro detail in Mid/Vocal and Treble/ Upper High, DX221mk2 is more. so DX221mk2 precieve more airy and clarity.
