I've been using this for quite some time and it's pretty fantastic. In my opinion, it has the best sound quality out of any available Android player.   However, I have one question: is there anyway to make the Media Type > Media Selection choice a saved selection? I've found it pretty irritating to have to reselect either Media database or Folder playback each time I want to switch artists or albums.    If it's not possible to do so in the current app, a toggle-able...
If I still had it, I'd definitely help you out. Unfortunately, the Note 2 and the iBasso didn't get along (way, way, way too much GSM radio interference) so the right angle connector went back when I returned the amp. Sounded great when I had it airplane mode though >.<
For anyone that is interested, my M-100's are up for sale on the forums: http://www.head-fi.org/t/714497/avs-mid-fi-audio-sell-off-headphones-daps-and-an-o2   Love the things but they just haven't gotten enough use. 
 If you like the HD 650 and are certain about that sig, you might want to consider the Focal Spirit Classic. The Focal Spirit Pro is to the HD600 what the Focal Spirit Classic is to the HD650. 
Did the mod last weekend and it really does seem to have made some substantial improvements to these headphones - slight reduction in bass quantity and a huge reduction in bass distortion. The headphones sound far cleaner and much more even now. All credit for the mod goes to the excellent comments in this thread and to Purrin for his longer description and notes on how to do the mod.   #1. Picked up some Dynamat and polyfill acoustic fiber. Don't use cotton or pillow...
 Yeah, I've read that re: burn in over in the thread as well. (I posted over in the 7520 thread while I had them in hand. Just for burn-in sake, I left them in a file cabinet/desk drawer for a couple nights overnight. So beyond my listening, they had another 20 or so hours of just random tracks running).  I'm also not ruling out pair or batch production variance. There seem to be a number of people in the 7520 thread that have had sibilance issues with these...and a number...
 I had the 7520 at home from April 19th to April 25th. Short review here. I'll probably flesh this out and post it as a full review onsite later with specific song examples. What I Loved About Them:  1. Ergonomics: They are very comfortable and lightweight. They fit securely without uncomfortable clamping force and the pads/cups are large enough to easily accommodate medium sized ears. (The makers of the FSP and Momentum should really take notes on the 7520's design.)...
 I didn't find the treble particularly hot or peaky. The bass was gorgeous too - probably the best I've heard out of a non-planar dynamic design. Their imaging was a bit narrowed/small (read: intimate), but their general tonal balance was pretty great. Add to that their fit and build quality and they are a really good headphone. I have returned them because of the sibilance problems though :(  I found that the 7520's sibilance was fine if you listened at extremely low...
 Re: Gadd's percussion...it sure is! "Gumboots" and the title track off of Graceland both sound wonderful as well. This headphone really does bass, drums, and bass/baritone voices well. I'm a low volume listener too. (I use my Leckerton on low gain, and at around 8 o'clock on the dial to just bump it past its channel imbalance.) I'm generally not a burn-in believer, but I'm hoping that with some mechanical diaphragm flex that I might get some sort of reduction. I have them...
Listened for a couple more hours and noticed some slightly elevated sibilance at the upper male vocal range/lower female vocal range (really, all around the lower treble range). So, I decided to do a search of this thread re: this topic.   It seems that this has come up before. >.<    I swapped to my Paradox to check to make sure that the sibilance I was hearing with the 7520 was in the original tracks. The sibilance is definitely there in the originals, but the 7520...
