just clip the resistors from one of the gain settings, and you get 1x gain.
I run my O2 at 1x / 2.5X gain.

Adjust your gain as someone else mentioned.

The Element works well with the Ethers. In low gain I have to go nearly all the way back around for me listening level. On high gain it's only about 1/4 to half.

Haven't had any time with their odac/o2 rev b so can't give any impressions there.

Could anyone recommend me some fairly cheap IEMs that have an inline microphone please? Need one for calls at work. Will be used for music as well.

I was going to buy this but I wasn't aware how insanely expensive it was. It's over half the price of my SE215s.

I have an iPhone so if it has controls that work with iOS that would be a bonus, but not a necessity.

I like my IEMs slightly bass heavy (like the SE215s).

Thanks!

I think Massdrop actually has some IEM's up for sale right now.. and at checkout you select android or iphone for the mic compatibility, I would get you exact link but Massdrop just keeps saying Oops everytime I try to login, so meh lol

So is the word on the street that the Modi Multibit worth the extra money in cost? Like doesn't have to be specific FLAC or something to get the benefit of multibit sound, or would even Spotify songs sound better with a Multibit? Just curious what the verdict is on this new Schiit release since its been out for a bit.

Why get Modi MB?
You know Bifrost MB will be better, and Gungnir MB will be better then that again.
So... Buy cheap buy twice? biggrin.gif

Because the modi is small and cute, whereas the other two (especially the mammoth sized Gungnir) scream out "I'm audio gear rawwwr". Probably also only so much he can pack when he moves.

I want a Gungnir/Mjolnir combo just because it looks so awesome, but at the same time I don't even know where I'd put something that wide. Oh, and it's like $3k CAD with taxes for the full meal deal too,versus "just" $1200 CAD or so for the Bifrost/Lyr2.

I guess you know what Z reviews has to say about bifrost multibit. tongue.gif

And to maybe realise the benefits, i would also setup an A/B test like he did.
And from listening to music, it then becomes a survey of the hearing ability, to differentiate minute differences. tongue.gif

Of course it would be nice if there was something that would provide "legit" night and day differences, apart from changing the headphones altogether.
