cody cooper: I'm getting sennheieser (might have spelt wrong) hd 600 and I wanted to
know if they still sound amazing or pretty good with just the headphones
and the ipod classic new or old 120 gb
Mark Turner: Will the sound still be good quality, if I use the ATH-M50X instead of the
headphones he is using?
Jim Bob: Surely doing all that converting from line out to 1/8 inch jack, then to
1/4 inch loses some quality or at least doesn't gain anything in the long
run??? Tell me if I'm wrong, but the very last step converting from 1/8inch
output 1/4inch will not improve the quality seeing as the sound travels
from the 1/8inch in the first place... Maybe he did this just for
convenience with those headphones specifically but it would be nice if
someone could explain!
kennyp987: HIGH QUALITY
Wawaweewa Rice: I don't understand so called audiophiles using apple products. Theres so
many things it doesn't support and the interface doesn't cut it. Poweramp
is a a great app for audiophiles, shows bit rate, organized, customizable.
I don't care if apple makes their own lossless version of flac, they could
rather stop being stubborn and just support flac and other file types
already. They just want money....
Rock'ca Holic: Would it make sense to buy one of these for bests pro headphones. And maybe
playing losses or high quality mp3 on an ipod classic?
Ernest Walker: PhotoTristan....where can I purchase one of the short 30 pin to 3.5mm male
ThinkingBetter: It would be interesting to take a set of lossless audio test files and
measure the output from the iPod directly vs through this external amp. Is
there a measurable benefit? (e.g. max power, frequency response, distortion
I'm rather fanatic about using great speakers or headphones while I've
heard even cheap amps performing excellent. It's rather trivial to amplify
a line level to a headphone level.
Leo Phan: Still.. Mp3 format never satisfy my ear :(
Brian Chin: Best portable bass set up: PS vita set to unique equalization + digizoid
ZO2 + bass modified sony xb+920's
tmbacz: That's nonsense about the lossless audio. You're splitting hairs w/ the
high quality files. The human ear can't distinguish b/t one type of smaller
high qual file vs a much larger high qual lossless file. Stop telling
Jjackj Lucky: Where can u get the amp
Mike Hobbins: Just bought a pair of audio technica ath m50's and i want to know what
would be the best amplifier to listen to music off my galaxy s3?
PawlOwl: lol "this adapter doesnt degrade the sound" so it is like any other
adapter. you are a noob with too much money
barrie frost: Hello : would the set up you are using be compatible with Beyerdynamic
Custom One Pros Cheers. Barrie
Ron Bernard: How long does the 9 volt battery last before replacing ?
h2soccergod: Audiophile and ipod do not go together. They don't even play flac files.
0s4x: Where can I get that 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter?
candoslayer: i just got the sennheiser hd558's and love them first audiofile headphone i
bought chose them partly because they were on sale for 160 regularly 180
and was wondering what program would you reccomend for ripping cds?
davina pond: I have the 160GB iPod classic 7th generation and I heard that the DAC on it
is a high quality. how do you get new CD's when they don't sell them
anymore. downloading CD's are a low quality compression. I try to find my
CD downloads at the best compression I can find usually 320kbs. what are
your thoughts or anyone else's. thanks.
Ian Newman: I recommend you consider the RWA Imod for your IPod
Mark Abindan: Yes its expensive. But if your heart is willing to hear good sound quality
what is 500$ its just nothing.
ragnell saria: IPod can reproduce alac files Wich is a lossless music the same as flac and
u can also rockboxed the ipod so its going to reproduceflac
viceadmiraal61: have the same headphone...the best in bass.
Plastic: why no rockbox?
edalarconreal: Have you tested the Fiio E17? Dac+amp?? Any thoughts?
kookieless: 1/8th inch errr it's 3.5mm!
Shane Dennis: How do you get lossless files?
AOS AIRSOFT: What ear buds do you use?
edalarconreal: Thanks, great video. Could you please post the link for the Meir amp. I did
not find it! Tx
LaLiebre408: why do you look like the unabomber in your profile pic?
Bernard Mahoney: i am no fan od denon .
TheJullim: i have heard substantial differences overall, EVEN through my iPod, some
people can hear the differences and some can't , some have the ears and
some don't, good gear helps also with noticing changes, also it's the
density, depth, and framing rates that change, your not going to hear,
"more bass" or heavier "mids", mostly in resolution, and density, sure they
sound the similar due to identical properties, but i would never go as far
as saying "they sound the EXACT same" or are "IDENTICAL"
icemannooim: I would love to see your proof for that statement. I can only assume you
mean lossless audio are not the same as the original analogue audio, since
you bring bit depth and bit rate into it, but lossless audio is lossless
when compare to its digital origin for example a CD.
icemannooim: There is no proof, just opinion, that a compressed lossless file sounds any
different from their uncompressed counterpart at identical bit depth and
rate. Most audiophiles claim compressed files make music sound compressed
but they have no idea how digital audio actually works.
Juan Sebastian Amador Bjarner: It is.
TheJullim: my mistake they're is no noticeable differences in lossless to lossless,
but format to format like flac/alac vs aiff/wav i disagree and do hear
differences as i said before "aifff/wav is has a better kbs rating than
flac/alac, and flac/alc has a better kbs rating than apple lossless"
nb347: Do you recommend the ipod over the nationite s flo2?
TheJullim: your basically saying Mp3's sound as good and are exactly the same as aiff
or apple lossless, since you say they are the EXACT same, the KEY is that
higher kbs, higher framing rate, higher bit rate it's going to sound more
dense overall, depends on what your comparing, YES the diffences are not
HUGE but are still their , i can INSTANTLY detect a 300kbs or 256kbs since
I'm used to much better formats
DJARACHN1D: The iPod classic is already a large "brick", why add an even bigger
appliance to it? You can't fit that in your pocket without it looking
Jon Yeung: dac is the digital to analog convertor, LOD just allows you to use external
TheJullim: no, lossless mean nothing is lost PERIOD which is finite, near impossible
Mrperry386: what are the higher quality Itunes files you were talking about? I would
really like to know how to get them.
MIRTRUDMAY: LoL Audiophile
Jon Yeung: you sure the cowon is better than ipod?
MihaZ: When I plug the line out adapter, my iPod classic amp is still active... Is
it that the cable isn't compatible, or am I doing something wrong? I'm
using iPod classic 160gb and a PICO amp. Thanks!
ghoti41628: Why do all "audiophiles" seem like they have such big egos...just my
opinion =O Guys you know there's this site called head-fi right...anything
audio-related and it will be there.
Juan Sebastian Amador Bjarner: Do you prefer the L9 or the one you are using here?
ZZZTopTX: Thank you for sharing this. This is a great review. Do you any have
suggestions for someone who is interested in a combo USB DAC headphone
amplifier solution to arrive at a similar setup as yours? At home, I enjoy
listening to my Senn 600 headphones through a MacIntosh MCD 201 CD player.
I believe this player uses the Burr Brown 24 Bit Delta Sig DACs. I have
been considering the NuForce HDP Icon as a portable solution to use with my
iPhone 5. Thanks and take care
Jon Yeung: please explain why apple lossless is not real lossless
