Tried these in The Schiit Audio Lyr1 and they were quite poor performing. Later used them in a Schiit Valhalla 2 and they are Superb!

Tube Rolling My Valhalla 2 Headphone Amp
Replaced the stock 6N1P tubes (a solid performer) that Schiit Audio includes with the Valhalla 2 amp with a pair of these w/balanced triodes. Most notable improvement through my system came in the bottom end through my Sennheiser HD700s. Worthwhile investment in my opinion.

I already have the regular JJ E88CC tube and decided to get the Gold (with balanced triodes) version and it is a pretty substantial upgrade. Well worth the price difference.

Clean & Clear
I replaced the Electro Harmonix 6922 tube in my Rode NTK with this JJ Gold Pin 6922. The midrange is more present in the JJ, the highs are a little more alive, and the bass isn't as tubby as the EH. I felt like the EH would be good for a quieter intimate vocal performance, but the JJ would be more of a versatile sound. Both the EH6922 and the JJ Gold are nice sounding tubes, it will be nice to have them both around as they seem to be two sides of the same coin.

Excellent tube , a bargain .
I had 2 expensive NOS tubes I got on Ebay in my Unico CD player. I bought a pair of these tubes and it transformed the sound - improved bass, cleaner mids and highs. Very lucid and lifelike and more micro detail. A bargain at the price. I opted for the matched option also.

I have the Sylvania 7308 and with my equipment these JJ E88CC tubes sound better. These tubes are smoother, tonally correct and quieter than the Sylvania. I am using this tube in a Valhalla Headphone amp with Beyerdynamic T-90. Nordost cables.

Super value and sound
Musical, enjoyable tube. Great starting place for Woo Audio 2. Far better than JAN-Philips 6922 or Genalex in my view. If you want better sound but can pay more then opt for the Sylvania 7308.
