beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE - Mini-Review




I recently bought the beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 Ohm headphones, and they're worth it. beyerdynamic being so well respected, I went for their DTX 101 iE Earphones, they look great, feel fantastic, no comfort issues. But In my opinion they sound terrible. My 15+ year old Aiwa Sound GT earphones sound better.

FYI they also hiss badly with my portable headphone amp (FiiO E11). These are low impedance headphones, so an amp is not required at all.

They sound dull, flat and lifeless.

FiiO E11 Portable Headphone Amplifier With Micca Accessory Pack - Review

Micca Distributor - 5/5
Seller shipped very promptly and I received the package a day before the start of the estimated delivery dates. 


Package was shipped via USPS in a bubble wrap soft package. I would've preferred a similar sized small hard cardboard box instead for better protection.


I really appreciate the 100mAh bigger extra battery and universal (battery) charger by Scud. It's very thoughtful, useful and economical at this price.


Scud Universal Charger SFC-519 - 4/5
The charger has a NEMA 1-15 electrical plug, if you're outside the United States, you might need an adapter for sockets. Build quality is above average and the charger can be technically used to charge batteries of various mAh types. The charger's apple logo lights up when a battery is connected and starts blinking rainbow colors while charging.

It's too soon to comment on this battery's longevity. I haven't had any issues afte…

Types of Equalizations

In my short experience, with audio and hifi, these are the Types of Equalizations I've noticed.

1. Source - Done at source mixing studio with dynamic range compression or other eq.
2. During encoding - If lossy encoding takes place. - Software equalization.
3. Soundcard DAC - Hardware equalization.
4. DSP - Hardware or software equalization. If you enabled it.
5. Amplifier - Hardware equalization.
6 Speakers - Hardware equalization.
7. Room - Hardware equalization.
8. Ear - Physical and biological equalization.
9. HRTF - Head related transfer function. - Crudely, how our brains listens.

From the above, the end user can tweak or modify the chain from 3-7.

All the best with your tweakings...

Pentax K-30 - YouTube reviews and impressions

Pentax K-30. Photo taken with a Samsung Captivate Glide
Got myself a Pentax K-30 dslr with a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL weather resistant (wr) zoom lens. Romeo over at Salam Stores Wafi, Dubai was a big help and I got a pretty good deal, near US Amazon prices with a WR lens (happy face).
Still learning the ins and out. Since there is not much posted about Pentax. Here's a collection of reviews and impressions I found on YouTube. I made a playlist of some interesting ones I found. This should help people decide if they want to go for this awesome camera :D
