No real reason beyond what I read online and assumption the compressing in Bluetooth would be audible. Last week I bought some JBL Club Pro+ TWS paired to my iPhone running Qobuz and I...

    Dan Clark Aeon Closed X upgrade to Aeon Noire Closed

    I have been using some Dan Clark Aeon Closed X connected to my RME ADI-2 DAC. I love the sound but wondering if it is worth upgrading to the Aeon Noire Closed, I do miss the open sound I have in Grado and Sennhieser HD660s, but prefer the tonality and comfort of the Aeon Closed X. Does the Aeon...

    Upgraditis and where I am today

I ignored my dads advice as a young man which was to build a separates system starting with the speakers. Instead when at college I bought a Technics Mini-system like all...

    AB testing USB DAC dongles

    I have started to build a collection of USB dongle DACs and USB DACs which I would like to blind AB test with my son switching the headphones between them without me knowing which is which. This is for fun but also to help me understand objective vs subjective by building my own experience. My...

    HD650 any better than 660

    Hi, I currently use Sennheiser HD660s which my wife bought me for Christmas last year. I think she went with that model assuming higher the number the better it is. I like the sound of the HD660s runnng of either my Mojo or more recently Hidizs S8, but there seems to be more favour on reviews...
