Almost every review of the Havi that I read here said they need an amp unless you have a powerful source (not sure the iPhone qualifies) and that they sound tinny without one: http://www.head-fi.org/products/havi-b3-pro-1 Worth reading
This might help: http://bringsound.com/articles/bluetooth-audio-for-beginners-part-2/ Tidal HiFi streams at 1411 kbps flac: http://www.techradar.com/us/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/music/tidal-1270607/review Bottom line, using Tidal HiFi over Bluetooth will mean you're going to lose some quality. Will you notice it? That depends on your ears and environment, I would imagine.
Or you could sleeve them individually and do an 8 Strand Braid up to the Y-split, then do 2 4 strand braids from there. Could probably super/hot glue the center of the braid at the split to keep it together if you needed to, though the tension on the 8 wires would probably keep it from unraveling itself.
It is one of if not the most recommended DAC and Amp in that price range (for good reason, from what I've read). They really do make great products.
The Schiit Magni2/Modi2 would work (or should). Seems to be a recommended combo: http://www.head-fi.org/t/664005/matching-200-usb-dac-amp-for-sennheiser-hd-650 http://www.head-fi.org/t/757284/best-amp-dac-pairing-for-sennheiser-hd650-unlimited-budget
If you're not using them with an amp currently, you'll probably find a huge improvement by adding an amp (and DAC) into your audio chain. Not necessarily for volume (though you'll likely get that too), but for adding energy into the notes and feeding enough current to the headphones for them to run efficiently. What are you using currently for a source? What sort of budget do you have in mind? Portable or not?
DT770 is closed, DT990 is open.
Signature sounds very much like the Beyerdynamic DT770. You should be able to find them for around $200 (32 and 250 Ohm versions for sure, 80 Ohm with an amp would fit what you want for sure).
Correct, but if your head unit is capable of displaying id3 tags or cover art you wouldn't get that either.
http://www.head-fi.org/t/747178/does-fiio-x1-plays-in-cars-usb-portAccording to a few posts down, the 1.2 firmware and above does work as you described.I would test a few files first to see what formats your truck could play (my car plays through the USB sync cable as well, but the iPod controls DO work; not sure if it would play with another player though. It will only support mp3/wma files on a flash drive according to the manual).
