It can. We now have an option to chose the device sampling rate.

Extremely doubtful. You'll hear...

All you're doing is measuring the output of the resampler. I've improved it a bunch since then, but I could have told you resampled audio (on a device with a highly power constrained processor) will...

No I don't think you read that correctly. It was contained because they isolated all 19 people, most of which were treated and eventually recovered.

Its obviously dangerous.

In people ebola is spread through blood and feces. So if you get blood on the doorknob, and then put that blood into your mouth or eyes, you will become infected.

This is not true. The cold is an airborne virus. Its so contagious because contact with bodily fluids is not required.

I've heard the isolation and fit is supposed to be better, but if your ears happen to fit the ones you already have well theres probably not too much point.

You know something like 1 billion people died of TB over the last 200 years right?

Ebola is nothing by historical standards.

Basically, your stereo is expecting a line level voltage, and your old mp3 player is probably not able to put out anything like that level. You need something that can apply gain to bring it up to...

I think some circumaurals will have more sound reaching the opposite ear and perhaps a bit more phase difference than IEMs, but its probably not a huge difference. I certainly don't notice much.

Power output is not that impressive though. They claim 1.5 Vrms, vs. about 500 mV for a clip or 800 mV iPod, and those are mostly just limited by the voltage regulators. Could probably push the...

Do you have a clip+ to test with? I'd be interested in the relative difference there.

Mine is also charging, but I don't have a baseline to compare with so it'll take me a few days to get numbers.
