Definitely low considering the original price. Have one too and it works well with all my headphones.

I’ve taken mine into work and I’m using it with the Stellias, it’s an excellent pairing.

Had the Stellia twice…cured now. Use it with Utopia, HEKse and HD800S.

Are you driving the Susvara with the Topping?

Yes I drive the susvara with the A90D, I wa using the LA90D with an adapter cable but I realised that they sound the same to me and I don’t need the extra power of the LA90, I’m deaf enough as it is 😂 I could probably use a more high end amplifier for the susvara but the only time I’ve heard a big difference was with the Octave speaker tube amps.

Sold the Susvara after I went through lots of amps and was never really happy with the sound. Best probably with the XLR pre out of the TT2/Mscaler stack. But sold it all realising the Susvara is just not for me.

Have you tried them on an octave amp? It’s phenomenal. I find the susvara to be extremely detailed and the most speaker like headphone I’ve heard to date but it can also be boring. This is probably because of the gear I’m using to drive it but I’d rather just listen to the he1000 v2 stealth or the meze elite if I’m finding the susvara dull. The he1000 is my favourite headphone out of all the ones I’ve tried, it’s so engaging for the type of music I listen to. Meze elite are also excellent and have been spending a lot of time on my desk lately because I’m usually gaming. The susvara is probably the worst headphone I’ve ever used for fps/competitive gaming.

Now that you have said it…Susvara has a beautiful sound but doesn't get me going. What’s worse is DCA Stealth which I sold straight away; it is too neutral or to be precise…no soul!

Had the Empyrean but should check out the Elite or Liric2. Have the 109 Pro and it’s sounds way above what they charge for.

Like you, I try to sell my Arche here in NZ as I try to simplify everything. Could buy an Audiobyte Vox stack and I am terribly content with it(for now ha, ha…).

Good chatting with you….all the best.

The Elite is an excellent headphone, maybe check out the empyrean 2 as well if you are able to. I had the same experience with the Stealth, incredibly boring even more so than the Susvara. Pushing on the side of the headphones and clamping them to my head improved the sound so much. It's been great chatting with you too 🙂
