Forward with elevated low to mid. Pair carefully.
Immediate noticeable difference between the stock adapter and became fatiguing after a short listen on my already mid-centric UE7s. Where the stock sound is more neutral, this somewhat colors/warms by bringing the presentation forward with elevated lows and mid. I even tried to put it through my FiiO E12A to see if it would back off. Just barely. Build quality is fantastic and sturdy. Love the braided cable. I would pair with iems that are flat/neutral to give them a little more punch. Otherwise, may not be everyone’s flavor. May just stick with the stock adapter until i get a set of leaner or flatter iems.
After listening to them on a pair of Andromedas (another BA set) and Xiaomi Pistons (DD). I noticed it didn't seem like it was just boosting frequencies, but almost like gain as well. I first noticed on the Andromedas it was almost like the vocals were clipping. Then when I switched to the Pistons, it wasn't as bad, but it sounded more muffled, per se. So if that's what the DAC is doing, there's certainly loss of clarity (think compressor or limiter) and stage. Not as fatiguing on the Pistons as the other 2 sets, The kick on the Pistons were definitely in your face. Didn't think this thing would change the signature so much.
Would not recommend to a friend.
impedance matching issues most likely.
