With amp, when you boost the volume the basses distort like hell.
You should consider it before buying HD 439. It can be annoying.
The rest, these cans are great. Nice sound/detail, adequate bass, comfortable.

I'm listening to progressive rock like Rush, Dream Theater so I don't want bass but want detail.
I would go for 449 because of what you are saying but I want my headphones to last longer.
I'm in a dead end lol. 449 is supposed to...
Well, i sold it and returned to the onboard one.

I'll never go for an usb card again, never.
Well, i bought a 47 ohm 2 watt resistor today
Removed the 100 ohm one and imported 47 one, it means -7.8 db decrease in volume. [20*log10(32/79)]
So i added +7.8 db from soundcard driver's equalizer. Same volume output as the...
Well, that means 4.5 db difference between 47 ohm and 100 ohm resistor, still not that good?
Actually my headphone vol is good @ %100, but it is the feeling of "i can't increase the volume more" that bothers me.
Lets hope 79 ohm...
Well, iZMXi that was the answer which i needed, thank you so much.
So, is there any solution to boost the volume up, besides amps cause they are kind of expensive in my country
would a fiio e5 (in example)...
yes it is, but without the resistance imported, the volume level is great. (i mean the direct connection with headphone's jack, sound card's output)
it is just the addition of the resistance (100 ohm), cut down the volume like...
