OK Budget system UPDATE! Tried same rig with a Drop/THX AAA ONE-- subbed it in after my JDS Labs 02s and Atom amp trials-- this time I tried it with the Planar Mob-- 2020 Ananda; Sundara 2021 with new Dekoni hybrid pads, and the 2021 Audeze LCD-X Since the THX AAA One are now popping up on Ebay for $125-$150 range I decided to hear if the claims of sterility etc were valid-- plus if they're as analytical as some claim that should be borne out too. I decided to stick with the Warner Remaster of Dire Straits since it has distinct bass, guitars, acoustic guitars low in the mix etc. This amp at these prices is still what you'd call a 'budget' amp-- the whole system runs $350ish. The Cambridge Audio DACs are still on Ebay for $139...OK well gotta say it was fun hearing all these headphones through this amp-- no surprise, the Ananda was the easiest to drive and really brought out the acoustic guitars and low-level background vocals; the Sundara was the power pig of the lot but...
Getting sound only in right earcup on my HD650 + Shanling UP4 + Drop Sennheiser balanced cable.
Hi ! I am using the following setup: HD650 Shanling UP4 Drop Sennheiser balanced cable: https://drop.com/buy/drop-trrs-headphone-cable-for-sennheiser Oneplus 5T When using the 2.5 balanced output of the Shanling UP4, I get sound only in the right earcup. When using the single ended(3.5m) output, it works just fine. What could be the problem? Are the cables faulty? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Is the 2.5 mm balanced headphone cable already included in the 179$ Massdrop hd6xx?
Or, is another jack cable provided with the mentioned headphones? I cannot understand if I can pay 179$ for headset and cable or if I should pay an additional 50$ to get them both. This will probably be my first purchase here and I am trying to get rid of any doubt. Thank you all! :) Gilberto
When will the Drop + GRACE Design Standard DAC BALANCED come back in stock?
I ordered a THX AAA 789 linear amp and wanted to buy a Grace Design Balanced DAC along with it, but it's still out of stock. Will it ever come back in stock. If not then are there any alternatives to the Grace DAC that will make a perfect pairing with the THX AAA 789 amp? I have the 58x, 6xx, and beyerdynamic dt770 250 ohm headphones and I need all of them to sound more than good.
Dear Drop Please make a Drop version of Hifiman Sundara. I believe Hifiman Sundara's drivers are pretty complete so leaving the drivers alone would be best. Offer several pads for different tuning is much better option then tweaking the drivers. P.S Offer a 3 year warranty/accidental plan.
