Was looking for a cheap open-backed to have some good bass and also give some decent staging. Picked up a Fostex T20RP. OOTB, hate the pads but have some good ones on the way. It likes a lot of power but even with the N3P and DX160, some pretty good sounds (it's SE terminated). It's funny that I like the tuning of this rather the Dekoni Blue I had. Just a fun sounding piece.

Hey all just a quick pop in so thought I would say hi.
@Richsvt sent me a quick PM after seeing my recent for sale ads, caught me sneaking in ....I'm pretty much out really, still like my nice Audio and still own a few bits but I have recently moved a lot over to Bluetooth, it in no way is as good as my wired gear but the margins are definitely getting smaller and what with the convenience rolled in I just seem to be using it more, especially on the go and at work .
I'm also not using a dap on the go anymore either as I recently upgraded my phone to the new Sony Xperia x1iii and being totally honest I love the sound using there software integrated with the phones hardware, I also received a pair of FREE Sony wh-1000xm3 a few weeks ago and really like them, there not audiophile a bit too much bass for my tastes, staging could be a bit wider and on occasion with the wrong tracks can sound a bit muddy ....but they have excellent mids and layering and some of the best vocals I have heard at times especially with hi Res music, the ANC is truly awesome on these too as is battery life , finding again I'm just enjoying them and the freedom of no wires ....I have tried these with various sources but they seem to work and sound at there best using my Sony phone ldac and there software , tried them on my dx,160 and they were ok but not a patch on my phone ....
I'm also using a pair of soundpeats h1 which on the go I really like, they aren't as smooth as my comets which I was using and the comets in ways are better. Again way to much bass, trebles rolled off a tad and mids/vocals can sound a bit rough/off on occasion, but these have excellent layering/staging and the crossover works a charm making them very enjoyable...
battery life is amazing on these 11 hours one charge and case will charge 4 times, also with a decent android phone I have NEVER once had a drop out unless going too far away.
so I there you go I have gone from audiophile to consumer :scream::scream::scream:...the shame of it! Lol
honestly though both stand out products , there not gonna beat your Andromeda, comets, Ananda but the margins are closing much more than I ever thought they would and if you just want to enjoy music without the dissection then both are pretty good.
anyway hope you are are all good and well and not been remortgaging for the next best thing:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.
also I want to send a quick shout to @mbwilson111 as I'm so sorry I haven't been in touch , I have actually been a bit I'll this year so my focus has been juggling work and illness ...don't worry I'm still going ok and here to annoy everyone.... hope your well Mary.

Thanks my friend hope your well as I know you too have a few things going on ...I will always love my music and still listen to iems/or headphones virtually every day, one of the standout albums for me this year has been Moby's "reprise" album it's reworkings of his hits done more in a acoustic/classical style ...check out tracks " natural blues" with Gregory porter "strange ways" and reworking of David Bowie "Heroes"
Really like this album although all tastes differ.

All is good my friend, thanks. Other than my dead ear, I have nothing really to complain about.

The past couple of years has been very stressful for us all.
Yeah one ear in this game isnt good....also not much cop for glasses either lol
Yeah a lot has changed since I was here thanks to the virus that I wont mention.

Goo d to hear from you. I know what you mean about the Sony. Not the absolute best at any one thing, but they just work to give enjoyment.
