Of course, especially when DT770 isn't neutral to begin with, hahaha.
 It doesn't work with ipods.  There are very specific units that do, none of which are iBasso units.
You goofed the right channel connection in the cup.
 You live up to your forum name, hahaha!  Damn, that sucks royally.  Are you sure you didn't plug into the line-out jack by chance that fateful day? Well, I'm quite fond of the TPA6130 headamp chip for compact/low-power equipment used in the Meridian units, but it seemed like they somehow borked it in the Explorer1.  Too colored sounding in that one for whatever reason(s).  Then the FiiO E5/6/7 implementation is just absolutely terrible.It's kind of anemic with...
