audiotechnica ath-sr50bt..
A very good headphone under 200$ The package include a short cable for recharge the headphone and a 3.5mm cable, instruction and carrying pouch. Very well designed, solid and similar to msr7. Sounds good and with solid bass, both with cable or bluetooth. Has a lot features and i m worry because i can t buy One for me: i have a msr7se and is a Little Better, expecially with furutech cable. Pads are bigger and solid than msr7 and i think that Is the reason because sr50 has solid bass, a Little + than my msr7se [image] [image] [image] .

Shure se846 - new lower pricing?
Now that Amazon is retailing them at 899 (as opposed the the 1249 launch price and lower than the previous 999 retail), we should be able to drill the price down even lower than the last Massdrop price (820), no? That's when I last bought a pair. Asking because if we can, it would let me buy another pair at potentially less than the replacement cost of the two buds I've got. Reference:

Specialist iFi audio ZEN DAC Signature now on sale on Drop!
We are excited to announce that we will also be launching a bigger and better ZEN DAC exclusive to Drop for a period of time. Based on one of the most talked about USB DAC/headphone amps on the market today, we combined improved circuitry with newfound singular purpose to produce a transportable DAC which concentrates on the DAC function and is dedicated to driving high quality amplifiers like the ZEN CAN Signature with authority and precision. Bit-perfect hi-res audio support includes PCM to 384kHz, native DSD and MQA, coupled to fully balanced analog circuit design – nothing anywhere near the price comes close. Our exclusive Signature version elevates the ZEN DAC’s DAC performance with upgraded circuitry from iFi’s flagship Pro Series delivering exceptional poise and accuracy to any downstream amplifier, but especially the purpose-codesigned ZEN CAN Signature 6XX with matching 4.4mm balanced inputs. Like a polished version of an already highly-prized precision instrument, the ZEN...

Question from a book I'm reading
Hi guys, First time post here. New audiophile. I'm reading a book (Harley, Robert. The Complete Guide to High-End Audio (p. 343). Acapella Publishing. Kindle Edition. ) and noticed the following statement: Briefly, inexpensive portable audio devices tend to work best when driving headphones of high impedance (i.e., higher than about 100 ohms). Low-impedance headphones perform better when driven by a more robust amplifier, such as those found in portable DACs and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Is it correct? Based on my knowledge so far, it should be portable audio devices for low impedance headphone, and amp for high impedance ones. TIA! CJ

Finally got Xduoo TA-03S tube amp. It's been a long wait with Covid-19 and then Houston's winter freeze which delayed the shipping even more. I'm pleasantly happy with the sound and it was worth...

Do i have to have a DAC to use my speakers with an amplifier?
I'm very new to this audiophile-stuff, and i have theese old Sony speakers, so i was wondering if i would be able to use an AMP with the speakers, without a DAC? Can anyone explain how it works? Thanks in advance.

Any Focal Elegia owners (or of other headphones) that noticed more bass and louder volume with another cable compared to the stock one?
I suspect my Elegia's stock cable came defective. I just plugged both my beyerdynamic Amiron home and HIFIMAN HE 5XX cables to the Elegia and on the same volume on the MIYO DAC (12 of 100), they sound a bit louder and unrestrained, and also the bass sounds big and finally level with the rest of the forward mids and well-blended highs. They're no longer bass shy and bothersome with the showty mids and overall anemic presentation. It's not a small difference. Waddaya guys think? You can still chime in if you've experienced this with other headphones. Is it cable impedance? Cable material? Is my stock cable defective? Is it not defective and that's how the headphones should sound? I want to mention that the horrible, poor excuse of a stock cable is terminated in 3.5mm TS earcup plugs. The HIFIMAN and beyerdynamic cables have 3.5mm TRS earcup plugs. I don't know if that plays into it. I don't think it matters, but I'm not a cable enthusiast. I live the stock cable, single-ended...

Can the Drop + THX AAA 789, the Drop + THX AAA One linear and the SMSL SP200 be used without a DAC?
I am asking because I want to get one of these Amps now and a Dac later or maybe not get one at all because my input is going to be my macbook pro. I am also asking because i have a budget of 300 usd and even if i get the One linear and a MASSDROP X GRACE DESIGN STANDARD DAC I will be over budget.

xDuoo Ta-10r, the successor to the TA-10. Any users here?
[image] Just finished reading this review, do you think it will pair well with the 58x/6xx. Making the budget before I take the purchase decision. I won't lie, the color and design grabbed my attention first.
