    Of smartphones and in-ears - Are Bluetooth headphones/earphones "there" yet ?

    I switched phones recently from a Sony Xperia XZ to a Samsung Galaxy S10.

    Dragonfly Black not playing well with amp?

    Hello, A friend recently gifted me some Stax Sigma headphones. It had been a long while since I hadn't used my stereo system, my habitual mode of music listening these days being off a Dragonfly Black hooked to an android phone running USB Audio Player. So at first I installed the Stax adapter...
