Hifiman order- still "Processing". This sucks!
 I have Amazon Prime and I am also incredibly impatient! Had I had a little more patience, I would likely have these already and for even cheaper!  Live and learn, I guess.
Kinda pi**ed! Ordered directly from Hifiman on Sunday night and my order still says Processing. Grrrrrrrr!
Hello David. I currently have the HD600, Bottlehead Crack and the TEAC UD-301- great combination!! I want to pick up the 400i on Black Friday but am worried about amplification. How will the 400i sound driven directly from the UD-301? Eventually I can pick up a decent amp for the 400i but would rather not if the 301 will drive them well. Thanks!
Bottlehead Crack (no modifications, yet)- match made in heaven!!
Pretty sure it's analog.
Well, have only heard the Crack- I have it teamed up with a TEAC UD-301 Dac and the sounds is absolutely wonderful! Smooth and good punch- great sense of space and nice soundstage. This will keep me content for a long time! Adding the TEAC makes a big difference (I had the Audioengine D1 prior). 
I just got the UD-301- it replaces the Audioengine D1. It is feeding my Bottlehead Crack tube amp and HD-600 headphones.

Most of my music is lossless (FLAC) with some 96/24 downloads from HDTracks. I have had it for a few day now and can safely say it is better than the D1. The clarity of the music is better and the...
 Funny, I have both of these headphones and I find the bass on the Mikros 90s to be quite satisfying though the positioning of the Mikros definitely affects the bass output. I enjoy both of the headphones- however, the M80s do not work well in noisy environments. The treble of the Mikros definitely beats the M80s treble. Midrange I give the edge to the M80s. Bass depends on the music- EDM and bass heavy music is better on the M80s but I prefer the bass of the Mikros for...
I have been intrigued by these headphones for some time but it wasn't until I saw them on Newegg for $39.99 + free shipping that I decided to pull the trigger. Glad I did! They came in a fairly nice box with a decent carrying case. Not sure if they are covered in leather or pleather, but the headphones look pretty nice. Upon placing them on my head, I noticed they were quite tight, but not excessively so- I have the V-Moda M80s so I am use to on-ear headphones (though the...
