After a year of extensive testing i find out that [Shanling M6]
has some flaws, which won’t fit my requirements. It is an excellent 2-way DAC DAP in terms of sound quality. All my claims have purely ergonomic nature: Dim display, big form factor [at least from my point of view], weak battery life.
These factors forced me to look at [Ibasso DX240]
i already wrote about Chinese audio manufacturers and their quality products. Till today i used quad driver FiiO FA7
earphones powered by my trusty cameraphone [Nokia PureView 808]
After some not so long considerations i’ve decided to try out something new with bigger puch and almost randomy selected [Shanling M6]
DAP paired with [FiiO FA9]
6-driver IEMs. I know that using Nokia 808 was quite limiting factor for quad driver earphones like FiiO FA7.
Do we really need expensive Sennheiser? In youth dates, I was fond of exploiting expensive audio technics.As for earphones, my favorite brand was Bayerdynamic.
However, some time ago I have discovered relatively inexpensive headphones from Chinese brand [Fiio]
. As a listener of wide gamut of music like ambient, trance, dub, psybient, jazz, metal: I have to say that this headphones provide totally unexpected level of audio quality. Especially if we’ll consider the price.
