I'm LOVING the SXFI Amp with my Massdrop FOCAL Elex (using Creative's SXFI AUDIO-TECHNICA AD700 audio profile), FOSTEX TR-X00 Purplehearts & E-MU Ebony (both headsets using the E-MU Teak audio profile), SENNHEISER HD 6XX (650 audio profile), AKG K7XX (K701 profile), HIFIMAN HE-4XX (HE-400S profile) & MONOPRICE Monolith M1060C Planar Magnetics (AUDIO-TECHNICA AD700 profile), BEYERDYNAMIC DT 770 Pro (oddly, the AUDIO-TECHNICA AD700 profile sounds better with these than Creative's BEYERDYNAMIC DT 800 profile), SENNHEISER HD 598Cs (598 profile), SONY MDR-7506, AUDIO-TECHNICA ATH-M40x (M50x profile), KOSS KPH30i & KSC75X (Porta Pro profile), and also with my CREATIVE Aurvana Live! & Aurvana SE (both Super X-Fi Certified). I'm excited to see how the SXFI Amp sounds with the SONY WH-1000XM3 bluetooth headphones (I'll activate them using a HAGIBIS Bluetooth 5.0 aptX HD [Model X2] wireless transmitter that I bought for the SXFI Amp at AliExpress.com) & FOSTEX MOD HOUSE AUDIO Argon Planar Magnetics which I've custom-ordered (I may later purchase, too, the Aurvana Trio earphones and stand-alone SXFI AIR headphones). Also, when I can afford them, I'd love to see how the SXFI technology impacts the SENNHEISER HD 820 experience (if anyone's tried this combo, please let me know! :). For those who may own the MEZE 99 Classics, I've found what works best for them is the SXFI sound profile for the AUDIO-TECHNICA AD700 headphones (my second-choice profile picks for the Classics would be three audio profiles posted in Creative's SXFI mobile app and within its Sound Control dashboard for PC -- those for the SENNHEISER HD 598, BEYERDYNAMIC DT 800, or AKG K701, in that order). For SXFI Amp use with my laptop, I downloaded the SXFI Control Panel (dashboard) for Windows 10 here: SXFI Dashboard for PC. Do make sure, though, when configuring your PC, that you set your Windows Control Panel Sound Controls to 7.1 Surround Sound and also disable any conflicting Spatial Sound settings, such as Dolby Atmos, under the Spatial Sound tab. Believe me, SXFI sounds MUCH better than anything Dolby has yet produced for PC spatial sound. Having installed the SXFI dashboard, it's with this that I toggle between Creative's different headphone audio profiles, to test which profiles work best for the various headsets I own. If you're using moderately high-end headphones, or, alternatively, if in doubt (or if you simply don't like the sound of Creative's generically labeled 'Unknown' headphones profile), I find that I opt most often for the AUDIO-TECHNICA AD700 profile, which seems, for me, to work best across the broadest range of different headphone makes and types.  Though clearly not the optimal solution, adopting these 'makeshift' SXFI profiles still creates an astonishing audio soundstage that sounds dimensions better than the closed-in 'cans' nature of the lows-mids-highs we're traditionally used to, even as we sport our most 'open' audiophile incarnations. The current makeshift profile situation will gradually disappear as more and more sound signatures are mapped to augment the SXFI database. Even as it now stands, I'm extremely impressed with the strides Creative has made with its new technology. The SXFI Amp compatibility reference for the HAGIBIS aptX HD Bluetooth 5.0 (X2 transmitter) is an online article I came across: 'SXFI Amp Goes Wireless with Hagibis X2 Wireless Audio Adapter Bluetooth 5.0 aptX Receiver Transmitter'. To aid in testing the SXFI audio profiles, here's a playlist link to 100 sound-test tracks for audio quality': SOUND ~ Test tracks for Audio Quality. Cheers!

Have you tried it with the Sonys with the bluetooth adapter? (I am almost more curious about how well it worked going through the adapter)

Unfortunately, the article about the Hagibis adapter is not accurate— at least per the manufacturer’s instructions for its “transmit” mode, because it simply didn’t work. Wasn’t that expensive, and maybe I got a “dud” — but maybe Creative can get “creative” and come up with their own wireless adapter that actually works. 😎

NEW Sennheiser HD 660 S
So this is why we've been getting such great deals on the HD 6XX (650). The new HD 660 S has been recently announced. There don't appear to be any (legitimate) reviews yet. While I'm curious to know how they stack against the 650's, I'm so content with my 650's that I doubt I'll care to drool over the 660's. https://en-us.sennheiser.com/headphones-audiophile-high-end-hd-660-s#product-reviews

Connect CLX to Bluesound Vault 2i as my DAC to play Tidal MQA and FLAC files on my NAS to Seinnheiser HD 800 and HD 650 headphones. Also, running Roon on my digital music library conected to a NAS. CLX has 2 set of RCA connections: SE input and SE pass. Can I connect any of these RCA connections to my Vault 2i? I have not made connections yet. Thank you in advance. [image] [image]

Headphones lost in mail
Have been following my headphones to Germany through the DHL tracking though they are said to have failed delivery. When I contact DHL parcel here in Berlin they say that the tracking number provided by Drop and DHL global is invalid. Even one collegue said that they were sent to a completely different address. However after calling on Skype DHL global back in the US they said that the address is infact correct and the headphones are laying in transit somewhere in Germany , but have no way of sending them themselves out to the correct address. Anyone have similar issues and resolve for such situations ? Would be great if Drop would offer a DHL express service for international shipping as that customer support is much better.

My hd 6xx sound like crap. Dull and congested sounding. Did i recieve a defective product ?
Got my hd 6xx today. Straight out of the box it sound veiled, conjested and dull. I have the hd 598 to compare to and 598 sound like from another world compared to 6xx. I am thinking i have got some defective product. I can't return it because i live in India(oversea shipping and all) Mine is made in Romania. I found online that some romanian made unit has some difference, and later they fixed it. Anyway i wasnt expecting anything dramatic difference like this. There isnt much channel imbalance to speak of but the overall sound is dull and congested. I don't know how it could be. I power it via fiio btr3 . It outputs like 60mw to 50ohm or something. I don't have any other dac or amp. is it the problem. Would buying a amp solve the problem.
