For anyone looking at these DON'T!! Go buy yourself the Sundaras or the Sivga P2 from Amazon, at least there you will have warranty and customer service. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LT8eKoVoDEk&t=145s

A few have complained that these just don't like being ran as single-ended and that balanced is the only way to go. All of those with this complaint mentions that they have a Drop THX 789 (if they mention their amp at all). Is there maybe some fundamental shortcoming that the 789 has in its circuitry for SE vs balanced? These reviewers also don't describe how long their cable runs are but I'm assuming that they're at a desk and just using the cable that is shipped with the Aiva, with no extensions. Has anyone tried plugging these Aiva's into any different amps, maybe one that is solely designed for SE, or even only as balanced? I have a Schiit Asgard 3 and I'm sure it has far beyond the power needed to drive these. The Asgard does not have balanced output though and that is the only thing holding up my purchase here.

The 789 also uses a log scale volume pot so changes below around Noon on the dial don't greatly increase the resulting volume. This is in contrast to the SP200 that uses a linear pot and probably isn't the best option for just IEM use because of it. I'm not surprised you don't have to make much adjustment for other iems, damn near all of them can be driven by a hamster wheel as long as noise and OI are low enough.

Hi guys, I made an TWO(2) EQ settings for the SendyAudio Aiva to be used with EqualizerAPO <https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/>. I had to make two different settings because the sound is different depending on the pad shape and sitting position on the measurement rig. It's a work in progress so I hope you guys try them out and see which one suits you best. Note: Optional EQ Settings (OFF by Default) Filter: OFF LSC 12 dB Fc 105 Hz Gain 5.5 dB (Harman +5.5dB Bass Boost) Filter: OFF PK Fc 5900 Hz Gain 7.8 dB Q 7 (Rtings PTRF Soundstage Boost) Filter: OFF PK Fc 9500 Hz Gain -10 dB Q 7 (Rtings PTRF Soundstage Boost) (*Rtings PTRF are to be used in conjunction - need to have both ON)

I actually used the EQ settings you posted on Head-Fi. I thought they were the same, but I see now the 2 here are different. I'll configure them all and compare. I use ReaEQ (Reaper) for EQ so I need to convert the Q values to BW first.

I think I prefer a combination of your settings. I'm currently using your V2 settings as a base, but with the PTRF soundstage settings from your HeadFi settings. I also disabled the 13200 Hz setting.

from what I've heard from other people sundar's are more detailed/accurate, if you get a good aiva (seems to be a lot of variance) they are warmer/funner, even though they are both planars they are tuned quite differently

Any suggestions on Sundara vs Aiva? Sundara is running at $349 now, which seems to flip the table about price value.

well you should never really go off of what one reviewer says the more the better personally I like that Z just says what's on his mind and has no filter shows that he doesn't care what other people say and really reduces the odds of him getting bought out for reviews lol

I don't watch any of those reviews these days. I audit and only keep what i think worth keeping. My point system can easily has 20+ metrics. Most of the time it is a waste of time for me to listen to what others say about something unless it is about ceveats and quality problems, especially when the vlogger is a bit wordy. I still prefer written reviews these days because they are fast to went through.

think there has been a lot of variance with these... Z reviews loves his but all his supporters that got them say they don't sound how he described at all he got his from cam jam though so probably a cherry picked good one that they wanted to show off

He said the Sivgas, and the Blons, and the monoprice ones. Thought they all sounded pretty much the same and loved them all. He just likes the drivers, and not EVERY person disagrees with him-the majority of people like these headphones. I think they sound good for music, but all of this drivers versions sound off to me when listening to podcasts or just human voices alone without music or instruments.
