huge difference, but it involved some explaining..


but gist is this: higher end stuff is generally open ended, because you get many advantages, such as large stage, and just better dynamics all around. but, also, you wouldn't travel or wear really high end stuff in public.. (damage, stealing, etc)


so, these are designed for fun and / or critical listening at home, where you have peace and quiet.

I've always been curious...is there any functional advantage for open earpieces? It seems like that kinda defeats the purpose of headphones.

but also keep in mind open doesn't always equal high-end and vice versa. There are closed headphones that cost $1000+ and open headphones that are around $100. Often where you listen to your music is the key determining factor for choosing open or close and nothing else matters in that decision.

If you are referring to IEMs then the passive seal you get should be sufficient. Maybe the tips you are using are not ideal for your particular ears.

There was a nice deal on the Bluebuds X for $50 at Walmart. One of the best Bluetooth IEMs you can buy

Agree, which makes one wonder why Adorama elected to package a portable DAC/Amp meant for on the go w/HPs most would only use in a desktop environment.

Oh well good deal to use as separates if needed.

Hard to beat HD600 HPs....no experience with the iFi Nano

Nano's amping stage is pretty weak, so I use it as a DAC and it serves the purpose quite well, supports DSD format if that's important,etc. I use external tube amp with it and have been pretty happy with this combination. It's also portable unlike schiit.

I use open HP's at home but that doesn't mean I don't want a portable Amp... I like to listen while mostly relaxing on the couch.

I'm far from an audiophile but this iFi blows the $100-$130 Fios Amps out of the water - they are complete different levels imho (to be fair the iFi does cost more). I own the Micro but have used the Nano as well. I think the iFi is way under appreciated & undervalued which was good for me because that's what keeps it affordable laugh out loud

Some reviews on the Nano:
