    ...but the DM7 is pretty competitive at less than half the price!

    Anyhow, I like to go out at the park either walking the trails or shooting some hoops or hitting the racquetball around and like the small rigs or even to hang the A45 on the fence and use the BT for a less obtrusive experience and of course no potential accidents. So, the all-in-one is an interesting concept that appeals to me. DAP, BT, Radio all in one unit. Had one a while back but but a "not there just yet" kind of thing. I have ordered a couple more recent models to see what we have now...

    I grabbed two form factors. The BT sport earphone style...

    You've got BT4.2, TF card slot, and FM radio for about $10.

    and the headphone style...

    Here we have the same TF card slot, BT4.2, and FM radio but we add passive use with a 3.5mm aux in and we have some EQ settings for the audio player for ~$30. Says NFC and something about aptX but that one I doubt...

    But we will see. Time to see how these all-in-ones have advanced in the last couple of years.

    How do you know it is 4.5X more as the DM7 doesn't exist(yet). :)
     
  7. Redcarmoose
    Yes, my bad, thought we were talking DM6?
     
  8. jant71
    Nope, I'm already accepting of the RHA dominating the DM6. Not that I have heard either one. I'm looking to the near future which will be here before you know it lol!

    How could I not when you routinely cherry pick terms I use in reference to products I've covered? And when the posting guidelines clearly say "If you have any financial connection to a manufacturer, distributor, dealer or any other association, this must be stated up front." it is not fine to omit whether or not financial incentive was involved in the writing of said review. Anyway, this isn't the place for this discussion and it's not like the majority give a flying f. They just want to read about headphones. Adios.

    Ok fellas HQ12 shipped. It is a damn shame we cant talk about them but it is what it is.
    Been enjoying the experience that is the Solaris.

    All I can say about the Solaris. If you can afford a pair. By all means treat yourself. It is as close to perfect sound for my preferences as it gets. I was gonna hold out till the Sony IER Z1R but initial sound descriptions of them describe them to be going for a similar sound.

    From memory the Sonys Had and still have the largest sound profile I have heard in an earphone. Leading to them to be even more speaker like in presentation. However there seems to be something going on in the Sony camp as there are reports for the company retuning the Z1R.

    So I went for the Solaris. Solaris does not have the same large sound but what it does have is a frontal middle and back layer of sound that I have never heard in any earphone. It is the very definition of a 3D sound. I thought my old Z5 had that going on. Soliaris is absolutely magical in imaging with a sub woofer like texture in the sub bass with a large enough sound to make it work correct. It is one amazing iem that I honestly think is worth the price. The other earphones I heard at Can Jam. not so much. In any case. I am looking forward to see what the HQ12 has to offer. And I will not report back on that one. Lame.

    I'm at 300 hours on my CL2 as of this morning. They're ridiculously clear....

    Also, I'm new to DSD files. Where is my problem likely to be? They all seem to lack bass presence. I have a hiby R6 to 2.5mm CL2. The source material is generally old-ish but I notice it on sea change by beck too.

    My high res FLAC files sound far superior.

    Of the various DSD Modes, dop, native and PCM, PCM sounds far better, but that kind of defeats the purpose of DSD....

    So something a bit interesting. Seems Aliexpress has embraced Black Friday. What this means is. You guys will have a 2nd or possibly a 3rd time to buy whatever you thought you missed out on 11/11 day this Friday. Prices for items seems to be hovering to about the same as 11/11. They will have Black Friday sales across the express.
