Had the same issue with my HD429, though not to that extent but they always felt a bit loose & came off when I was head banging sometimes, (the HD4XX series all have the same drivers but different damping, even the new HD497 I believe.) This modding guide by wje helped me alot, http://www.head-fi.org/t/646251/sennheiser-hd-428-hd-428s-modding-guide-january-2013, just read the part about attaching a thick steel rod to the headband. Though I covered my headphone with the...
    Listening to Big Sean's Milf Feat Nicki Minaj, funny lyrics, but then again he's always infused humor in his rapping and music videos.
Hi there, after hours of searching the internet on how to rockbox my ipod 7G slim, I found a solution a few months ago as to why Rockbox wasn't installing on my iPod.   For some of you, even though you have installed Rockbox using the instructions included here in the beginning of the thread and on the freemyipod site, & it still gives an error saying rockbox failed, there might be a solution & I hope it helps someone. Here's a snip of my earlier post on this thread...
Hi. I hope anyone can help, well I have tried installing Rockbox and have followed the manual and copied the installer-ipodclassic.ubi file into the UMSboot volume and safely ejected the ipod and used the Rockbox utility to install Rockbox, ticking 'Show disabled targets' checkbox. It completed the Rockbox Utility installation & I safely ejected, shut off and booted up the ipod. I even copied extracted the contents of the latest build rockbox-ipod6g-20151024 folder into...
Haven't seen the Mad Dogs dB/mW sensitivity specs, but I've read that they are a bit harder to drive than stock. But I think orthodynamics in general do need amping. Maybe you could look at the JDS labs C5, which its output power is almost equal to the O2, so that would be...an iPod > lod (line out dock) > C5 > Mad Dogs or get a better portable source than a laptop like an ODAC and pair that with an O2.   Or get a BSG Cmoy for a more portable solution just like the C5,...
Lol, you'd be extremely lucky to find an X1 used at that price. To help, maybe the L1 is the best cheapest option, I think they are now $150 used and need minimal ampage or used $320 X1. I've seen the L1 spec and its only 105 db/mW sensitivity, so only needs 1.5mW to reach a loud enough volume, so even an E7 is more than enough as its output power is 16mW to 300ohm, so might be a better cheaper option if you don't intend to buy another amp. Though the better for vocals...
Like angels singing all around, just beautiful...listening to 'Marilyn', in the Haunted Man album.  
You forgot the Dr DAC Muses Edition which is a class A amp like the Matrix and with a great headphone stage and the Calyx Coffee though it's only 120 mW should be good for anything under 100ohm impedance except some AKG's and orthos and the Maverick Tubemagic D1...these are the good ones. The HLLY DMK IV doesn't have a good enough headphone output stage from reviews, neither does the Audioengine... There also many Audio gd options, under $300, though you have to factor...
Another song that's on heavy rotation in my playlist... Livvi Franc Featuring Pitbull - Now I'm That Bitch. I'd link to the Youtube vid, but I'm too lazy, I just ate a heavy lunch. It's nice to appreciate all genres and there some gems in Pop music, here and there. But yes, most Pop albums these days are just plain crap.
  My foobar says I've listened to the 'Thinking About You', 140 times over the span of 2months,must be a mistake...really good album, so maybe I have. It's more of a metal pop album, I don't even listen to that kind of poppy metal though, but in this case a few songs are really fun. Anyway back to listening to my Birthday Massacre and Kidneythieves.
