Thank you. 20K per component, so it will be 60K for DAC, amplifier, and headphone.
Thanks to a very good friend in audio, I got myself an HD800 loaner (with balanced 8-core crystal cables, or is this silver litz?) for a week (or until he tells me that he needs his unit back).
In my opinion, if you have these two headphones (the HD800 and the Elear) and budget is an issue (i.e., you can't go for the summit-fi offerings), these can cover most, if not all, music genres that allow for a very enjoyable listening experience.
depends on which headphone as well. the ones i have easily surpasses 60K, headphones alone. but shhhh, don't tell the better half.
Very much agree Sir! When my parents notice that I am again bringing new audio gear in the house, I just tell them that a friend just traded me his/her gear or there was a big sale that I got the item for 50%-70% lower than SRP.
shure has finally released their own bluetooth cable, with up to 8 hours battery life. unfortunately, the official page does not provide the supported bluetooth codecs:
thanks for the heads-up. codecs are probably the usual: aptX and SBC/A2DP.
I was fortunate enough to audition the Elear in a meet-up. They sound great and feels great on the head and ears.
did a little bit of digging and found this in the BT1 faq:
Q.) Do the BT1 cable and earphones support Bluetooth aptX codec?
A.) BT1 products do not support aptX codecs.
^Ah, ok. Not a big deal for me. When I go wireless, it's mostly for convenience—not fidelity.
Besides, apt-X is not lossless, so no need for my ear canal to go anal.
Mm...best solution if you have multiple in-ears in your collection with mmcx and two-pin or rarer pins like the proprietary pins that Fitear uses ,it doesn't really matter, and you want wireless freedom.......is still the Astell & Kern XB 10. Field-tested this for many months now and it works beautifully. And you can use your custom cable including balanced 2.5 mm. It is on sale right now:
Outputs better than AptX with aptx HD (so 24 bit/48 khz. tracks, bluetooth streaming is no problemo).
Langya ka. Impulse purchased it just now on Amazon, for $129+.
But thanks for the BI reco.
Mm...It adds more enjoyment options to your in-ears/ciem arsenal. It is the best bluetooth solution right now and certainly is the standard for wireless fidelity. Wired sets are still better but you gain wireless freedom that is more than good enough for casual audiophile-grade listening.
^Yeah, I looked for your other BT recommendation (Noble BTS) at the SG CanJam six months ago, but they did not have it in stock. So I just went my usual wired way, and forgot about wireless since.
But AK had me at HD, for only $30 more than the Shure BT cable. No-brainer!
It'll keep me occupied until the 10x expense of an X.
Firmly within the Sony audio camp. #FanboyModeOn
Thank you so much for this!
Is that an X2?
It's just a WM1A.
hi guys. saving up to upgrade from an ATH-M50x to either a Fostex T50RP MK3 or the Oppo PM-3. Would any of you guys had the chance to use these headphones before? would i be needing a separate amp to use and enjoy them? TIA.
been enjoying these babies for over a month now; this is my first iem and im now "rediscovering" my music library
