I can't believe this.

Recommended Posts

I always think how the clickbait and thumbnails got to new low, but then I remember that you have techlinked.


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

You can also use that setup with your PC, so long as your DAP has an option to run in DAC only mode, u can use USb to plug into ur PC and bypass the PC audio. Resulting in a great audio experience from your PC.

 

I personaly have a FiiO X3k and when im not using it at work, i have it plugged into my PC so that when every1 at home goes to bed, i switch over the output device in Windows and wear my headphones via the DAP in DAC mode. Sounds substantialy better than my Asus D2X sound card. I think the size is fine tbh, though like you im part of the older generation so a DAP+AMP combo may not seem big to me but for those younger people who grew up with slim phones, i can understand the idea that its bulky.

 

i do find it funny how you decided to do a ..limited review.. on a super Audiophile grade product though :P

Oh damn! I’ve heard really good things about the Fiio M9 and have been waiting on seeing some reviews for it over at Head-Fi, though I have seen Z-Review’s take on it. If there’s no video for it, would you guys at LMG mind writing a review of it on Head-Fi or over here somewhere? I’ve personally been debating on this or the M7.


Who needs fancy graphics and high resolutions when you can get a 60 FPS frame rate on iGPUs?

Finally a use for that Pono Player crap thing from a while ago? (At least regarding the uncompressed files)?

When it comes to the DAC, why not use one of LG's phones like the V20, V30, V40, G6, or G7, with a Quad DAC built in?

Seriously, who was this video aimed at? I mean the title surely isn't going to attract anyone actually INTERESTED in the product, so was this more of a "HOLY SHIT!" episode? Or just advertising?

All so true!

 

Gotta cater to a certain demographic, the income charts per video shows it clearly.

But who... exactly are they catering to.

 

It honestly just makes me thing that they're making these titles to piss us off. 

 

A. The title is not descriptive.

B. The title says nothing about what is in the video.

C. Who, on earth, are they advertising to? The majority of subscribers are freaking 12-18 year olds who don't freaking have $2,000 for an MP3 player.

 

It's almost like they chose that title because they knew all of their subscribers would click on it, at least for a moment to see if MAYBE it was something cool.

I was about to say "eh whatever I can guess what's in the video from following past tweets" but I feel like the title's more or less devalued as a utility thing ._.

(point being youtube's smart enough to search descriptions and sometimes even captions for search) but still whatever makes youtube suggestions pick content. (still wish the people there would intervene by actively steering the suggestions AI though (because it feels like it loves controversial/angry titles more and I don't wanna passively grow into an angry old grandpa ,_,))

PS: for the headphones themselves I have no strong feelings one way or the other ._. I mean I don't have one (or another to recommend over), but if there's a show with one for a demo set I would definitely try-- wait in-ear demo set... not sure if sanitary

Just give me headphones that hang on the outer ear part and not in the ear canal. I hate those and it seems everyone dropped them for this silicone shit that I can't stand. It seems the AKG's that I currently have are the last of its breed. Should have bought 5 of them when I had the chance...

but those fall off easily for me, and the in-ears have that sound isolation (although I had to use them less often because I had a year where I had to get my ear unjammed. swinging between an in-ear and over-ear pair these days) ,_,

I was thinking about using these with my LG I wonder with Tidal Master audio quality sound wpuld be a waste with these.
