    Master "deals" (massdrop, ebay, Amazon, etc.) Thread on Audio Product Sales

    Hifiman has it open box for $229. Not sure what they had been previously listing it as. But several years ago, the V3 were commonly available for a lot less than that retail price.

    Master "deals" (massdrop, ebay, Amazon, etc.) Thread on Audio Product Sales

    I can confirm that it also sounds great with a lot of bass boost for anyone that wants to turn it into a "fun" headphone sound. Very clean due to how inaudible the bass distortion was that Amir measured. Just needs a good amp for the bass boost given its low sensitivity. As far as that retail...

    DAC recommendations - Modi 3E or alternatives for around 300$ max ?

    The Topping E30 measure so accurate that it is easily arguable to be noise and distortion-free within the range of human hearing. In other words, it exceeds the highest fidelity sound reproduction your ears can perceive. The Modi should be similar in accuracy. But unless you can upgrade your...

    High impedance headphone jack on new M1 Max 16 inch MacBook Pro

    I don't have a MacBook to try it with. But people do sometimes mention that they have a new MacBook Pro over at r/headphoneadvice. So would be nice to tell them what ways there are to bypass the low gain mode when trying to help them with headphones.

    High impedance headphone jack on new M1 Max 16 inch MacBook Pro

    Anybody find a setting in their MacBook Pro to disengage the low impedance gain mode? Thinking of how some low impedance, low sensitivity headphones would benefit from more output.

    What are we listening to right now..

    I think this is actually better than the original (I do like the original). And it's a great video to watch all of these people from all over the world performing the song.

    Julian Krause measures front and rear DAC and headphone output of three PC motherboards

    Some not unexpected results, with high output impedance for all three motherboards, and weak headphone power output for two of them Skip forward to 6:15 to see the results table.

    THX Onyx Review (headphone adapter)

    Yep. I have the Tempotec Sonata HD Pro hooked up to my THX 789 amp. But no one wants to believe that a dongle DAC is just as good as the desktop DACs that cost more money. I love it because it doesn't take up any space. Just hangs out back with the cables. lol

    Hifiman Edition XS

    That's not a good way to describe it. Of course it needs power. Current equals Power divided by Voltage (I=P/V) The right way to think of it is that Edition XS does need a lot of power because they draw a lot of current, not that they don't need power. Whereas a difficult to drive high...

    Hifiman Edition XS

    Oh, well. I know he skips such things occassionally. Still helpful in terms of finding people who might know. And it's good when such questions and answers are in the review thread, because it's the first place someone else goes to look for the answer to the same question.
