    Thank you. I believe this is wired R-R+L+L- to L+R+L-R-.

    I'm going to search for a shorter cable and / or retailer from Europe (25$ p&p fees for that one) for a while, and if nothing can be found, order that cable.

    That's exactly the cable I use and I love it. It's a little long for my purposes, so I have coiled up a good chunk of it and tied it with zip ties, that bit stays in my pocket with the ES100.

    I had previously soldered my own cables by taking apart the 1/4" plug cable that came with my 598's but over time the plug started losing connection to one channel so I gave up and bought something more reliable.

    Hmm.. I already ordered ES100 and NewFantasia cable for 598s, but got tempting AKG-K702/712 offer a moment ago.. Would ES100 be enough to drive 712s, if I changed my plan and made wireless 712s instead :wink:

    As long as you listen below 90db or so I'd say you'll be fine. I use a bass modded Q701 with my ES100 and it works very well, but I listen between 75-85db.

    Thank you, should be well enough for me.

    Now I just need to figure out should I buy 701 for 130$ or 712 for 230$.
  7. jasonb
    Q701 for $130?
  8. dogilainen

    K701 or K702 for just under 130$, K712 for just under 230$.

    But since I'm ordering guitar from that same shop anyway, and adding headphones would break the free shipping limit, "real price" for the headphones would be 100$ / 200$ :wink:
  9. jasonb
    I wouldn't do the K701 since the cable isn't replaceable. But the 702 yes.
  10. dogilainen
    This is way off ES100 now, sorry for that, but I'm still considering K712 over K702. Never heard either, and have no chance of doing so before purchase, but that "3db low-end boost" sounds tempting. Most likely you haven't heard of most of the bands I listen to, but many of them are "orchestral", powerfull metal music..

    Any thoughts on es100 sq vs iBasso dx160? I just received my es100, suberb sq compared to my m11. I'm just considering sell the m11 to try some other daps like dx160.

    The DX160 has superior SQ to both ES100 & M11. Cheers!

    Althought I don't own DX160 (and before make a final judgement on ES100), did you tried to turn off both bluetooth and USB DAC jitters switchs + both DCT and crossfeed off + filter on sharp roll-off and 1x sampling rate ? (this is how I truely enjoy my ES100)
  14. serwei
    Hmm weird. I'd connected to my Note 8 via otg, and the DAC works, but the Radsone app doesn't see it at all. Lol
  15. Cevisi
    Better then m11 really ?
