For those looking for some info about those IEMs look up super reviews on youtube. He already did an unboxing/measurement of those. The video is an hour long but the actual content is like 15min. The rest is more of a QnA
hollowslyferI purchased these and planned on using them with my Topping DAC. They sound fine if I just use on-board sound, but as soon as they’re plugged into my dac they just get incredibly loud and sound blown out. If I attempt to turn the knob on the dac, it does almost nothing until it’s super low. Do you (or anyone reading) have any suggestions? These are my first IEMs and I’m not super into the audiophile community so I’m a noob. TIA
JamesOgle115IEMs are typically extremely sensitive that's why they can work without amplification (most of them at least). Your DAC probably has a sound floor that is too high for them. I normally don't use my IEMs from my dacs/amps and if i HAVE to plug them in source thats too powerful I use an attenuator (ifi iematch+). Alternatively they're some amps that have a high sensitivity setting like the IEMagny from schiit.
hollowslyferI figured it was something like that, I just don’t know much about audio lol, I only plan to use them occasionally so I guess I can put up with the small hassle of switching devices. Thank you for your helpful answer
