Matrix M-stage HPA-2 USB 24bit/192kHz USB Headphone Amplifier Black
Matrix M-stage HPA-2 USB 24bit/192kHz USB Headphone Amplifier Black

4.0 out of 5 stars I will recommend it if only you enjoy bright sound, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pros:
- Build quality
- Very clear sound
- Decent separation
- Huge soundstage!

The Cons:
- Sharp and bright sound
- Sibilance

The brightness is mainly caused by the built-in DAC.
I believe this amp should be paired with a warm DAC although some listeners may like its bright character.
I would rate the amp section only with 5 stars but I give 4 stars to the whole unit because it has a bright and sibilant DAC.

2.0 out of 5 stars Marginally better than onboard sound, 10 Oct. 2014
Sounds bright, clarity is not top-notch as I expected, instrument separation and imaging are mediocre.
In general, it sounds only slightly better than my onboard sound card.
I could give 5 stars if it cost less than 80 pounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Both build and sound quality are very good.
It has replaced the Fisual S-Flex Mini that I was using with my headphones (Philips Fidelio X1) as it sounds better.

I can say that this cable is excellent for the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cable, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cable ticks all the boxes:
Nice appearance,
Good build quality and
very good sound quality

I bought it to replace the stock cable of my Philips Fidelio X1 and I am completely satisfied.

Also I 've compared it to an Audioquest Tower cable of the same type and length and found that the Fisual sounds better through my headphones.

Totally recommended especially if you have Philips X1 because they match both sonically and ergonomically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Congratulations Philips!, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A perfect headphone in all aspects: Aesthetics, build quality and sound quality!
The only flaw I can find is the stock cable which needs replacement as it provides an unbalanced and unnatural presentation: Too much bass, artificially accentuated voices and rolled-off treble.
When I replaced the stock cable with Fisual S-Flex Mini, the X1 became a perfectly balanced headphone! The amount of bass is now ideal, the voices and the treble sound natural and generally the sound is neutral and transparent. I disagree with some comments describing the sound signature of the Fidelio X1 as V-shaped. This is untrue even if you listen with the stock cable!

In general, Philips Fidelio X1 is a very alive and intimate headphone which gives you the impression that you are there, at the place of the recording. This is facilitated by a very good level of detail and a big and airy soundstage.

Conclusion: Once you replace the cable, this is a full 5 stars headphone. Totally recommended!

I use this grater every time because it is easy to wash.
It is also very light and thin so you can easily store it.

2.0 out of 5 stars SQ dropped with this cable, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cable is of a good build quality and worked for the intended purpose.
I wanted to connect the old Sony MH1 earphones to an ipod and get correct sound.
It worked for this but the sound quality drop was significant so I returned it to Amazon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Like a good-looking ...blondie, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The appearance of this cable is fantastic! Looks like a women's jewelry.

However, the quality of the connection is equal to an 1 pound cable you can buy from ebay!
Tested it with a USB DAC where it provided the worst results in comparison with every mini-USB cable I own.

Recommended only for women.

2.0 out of 5 stars Metallic-distorted highs, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Treble was metallic and generally high freqs did not sound clear.
My Samsung stock headphones that come with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 sounded much better.
The product was returned.

Maybe it was a counterfeit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect! the stand should be improved, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The keyboard is fine! The only issue is with the folding stand:
It's not sturdy which means a slight force may move it and the tablet will drop on the table as it will lose support.
And one more thing: It supports only one angle.
