    Snr (loaded) 104db to 110db goes up, and stereo crosstalk (loaded) -83db to -109db goes up quite a bit from SE to balanced. So more power and a bit cleaner and greater stereo separation with balanced. Of course what is noticeable to me is the greater power which gives more headroom with less volume and the stereo separation ( soundstage ) is wider and has better imaging.

    However lol, measurements are helpful but your ears and brain are really what counts. If you read the headfonia review he mentions the excellent bass response of the zx300 and I agree wholeheartedly. But there is nothing in the measurements to really confirm this compared to any other dap, but it is noticeable especially if I switch daps. :wink:

    Crap there I go quoting myself again, I swear I hit the edit tab :frowning2: sorry

    I thought some people were mentioning differences of the colour between 16 & 64GB models in this thread a while back?
  5. Bepli
    Nope it was differences between photos on sony site and real life. In real life the outer ring of the ports are more copperish

    Ah ok, I must've misread it.

    @abitdeef So I see accessoryjack has the IE800s at 769 euros. When it reaches 600- and i believe it will- I will go for a blind buy.

    Dont, the cable is really ****ty and not replacable. Its so freaking microphonic.
  9. denis1976
    yes a litlle...but the sound is freaking awsome
  10. Bepli
    A little ? its not usable even when moving barely. I had a pair for 2 weeks and returned it. Its really bad you would need to turn up the volume really high which is bad for your ears. also sound is just okay for the price

    Buy a clamp, use arround the neck or behind the ears...if after all that they don't became awsome , with a natural organic and very pleasant sound, buy a new source....but i think you have a great one
  12. denis1976
    Yes the sound is ok with the zx300, is great with the sp1000cu, source matters, and with this ones even matter more

    I tested with multiple things even there desktop amp, the IE800s are just okay for the price and nothing special. The cable microphonics are bad and considering the price its a no go.
  14. denis1976
    Is your opinion, i respect that, a desktop amp may be good or bad, there are good ones and bad ones, is not a 100% right thing, this iem have a mature tuning,they are not for fireworks, they need to be listened ,with time i think they are lovely, but is only me opinion, just that

    i've been connecting my iPhone X to the X300 in DAC mode and playing standard res files through the Onkyo HF Player app and getting unbelievable sound! Seems as if the app is upscaling the files and turning them into high resolution. The processing seems noticeably better than playing the same files installed on the DAP itself.. Separation, soundstage all seem improved. Makes me want to sync my whole collection to the app.
