Edifier Da5000Pro Review with Xonar DX

When I was struggling to find out a good budget sound card for my Edifier DA5000 Pro, I came across Xonar DX or D1 through many techies. So, I thought of giving DX a try.
Finally, I bought one and installed it in my PC. My initial impression was just OK and I was satisfied with the sound, and it was worth for which I invested. I am using an Intel motherboard with Core2Duo processor.
The Xonar DX specs claims that the sound quality will be 35% better than the on-board sound card. But, I felt listening to music with this is 1.5 times better than the on-board sound cards.
Hence Edifier DA5000Pro + Asus Xonar DX – is definitely a good combination for budget audiophiles.
So, my search resumed again. However, this time the search was for the solution and not for the sound card.Then I heard in some blogs suggesting for modded drivers, developed by Brainbit. So, I decided to try it once. After modded drivers are installed, the sound quality has improved to an extent.

When I tried to download it for the first time, I was really not curious in downloading and installing the app as it is not present in the Google Play.
To give a try, I downloaded and installed it, and my first impression was amazing when I plugged my earphone. The audio enhances to a better extent and gives you the flavor of music you like. For better results, I would suggest you to use the enhancement types like earphone or headphone and experience the result by yourself.

SoundMagic E30 review

E30, another emerging and top searched IEM from SoundMagic. E30 is launched as an upgrade to PL30 – a budget earphone with fun and spacious sounding, and also a preferred earphone by many customers even for now.

The outlook and feel of E30 is similar to PL30 – an on-ear type earphone, designed for the use even while working out, playing and other activities.

Accessories and Build Quality

The package comes with a pair of plastic ear guides, a pair of double-flange tips, 3 pairs of single flanged other different sized silicon tips, a carrying bag and a shirt clip and  these accessories are sufficient and quite enough to fit for different ear holes.

The build quality is good. As, I am currently using the third version of E30 which shows a good improvement in the build quality compared to the previous two versions I used (not sure about how many versions of E30 has been released).

In the newer version, the wire looks like a rope where two wires are twisted to combine them. The housings …

Installed the hardware and drivers but the sound is not that great – Check whether you have inserted into the PCI-e slot properly. The device comes with a long metal strip which will stop it from entering deep into the slot. If the device is properly installed then it needs some force to remove the slot, check this once. If it is easily coming out even while inserting jacks with a mild force, ensure whether it is properly inserted and also try with the small metal strip provided along with the pack.Reason: The cabinet dimensions may not match with the width of the metal strip.The drivers are not getting installed – This may be due to the error connecting by power pins to the sound card …
