    What headphone(s) do you own ?

    Here I am replying to my own post ... The Elear still takes pride of place at home, now either coupled to Topping D10 + Atom or to Topping DX3 Pro, but I've somewhat expanded my "mobile" stuff :p Again, chronologically: Curious about Balanced Armature drivers and reading some favorable reviews...

    Samsung USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    That is indeed what I'm saying, and no, it isn't broken ;) This is a design choice made by Huawei, and open to any constructor to decide how they want to implement audio over USB-C.

    Samsung USB-C Headphone Adapter Review

    This "casino" has nothing to do with Android in itself, but with the USB Audio Device Class 3.0 specification (https://www.usb.org/document-library/usb-audio-devices-rev-30-and-adopters-agreement ). Manufacturers, be it of smartphones, tablets or computers, can choose to either send audio in...

    Review and Measurements of Cyrus soundKey DAC

    The cables you received are part of the retail package. I actually sent you everything but the package itself and its accompanying leaflet. Subjectively speaking I like the SoundKey with my decidedly bargain-priced AKG K72's for late-night Netflix in bed and stuff like that, where it seems to be...

    Nice, another dongle tested. This means the Cyrus SoundKey has moved up a slot in the dongle queue :p

    Review and Measurements of New JDS Labs Atom Headphone Amp

    Review and Measurements of New JDS Labs Atom Headphone Amp

    No, that's not true. European warranty law states that a merchant must give a 2-year warranty to the end-user, regardless of factory warranty. In this case, European resellers for JDS are lucky, as they can fall back on the factory warranty. Audiophonics on the other hand have no such luck with...

    Review and Measurements of New JDS Labs Atom Headphone Amp

    I don't live in the US, nor in the UK, so I don't count in Dollars nor Pounds. 166€ seems an acceptable price to me compared to other options, taking into account: quality of the device speed of delivery reduced distance of transport, and hence reduced risk of loss/damage EU warranty, which...
