Guys, I've done musical chairs with some posts.    This is an impressions thread, which means you should post your experiences with the headphones. All other discussion about them should go in the main thread here:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/811270/focal-elear-and-utopia-review-preview-with-measurements-head-fi-tv/
Back on topic please.
I can guess why they decided to sell it at that price: To make it impractical for Chinese companies to make knock-offs. Why? Because people tend to blame the phone manufacturer rather than the accessory maker if something goes wrong. 
 Not out of character at all. The Lightning to 30-pin adaptor, which has been around for years now, has a DAC in it. 
I think you have it backwards. An example of a current-driven output would be the Bakoon amps. The Audio-gd amps are voltage-output. I owned a Bakoon and it definitely affected the frequency response of HD800s, which have a non-flat impedance curve.
The ZX2 sounded very "dry" to me when I used it. Some people seem to really like it though.
Have you pushed the headphone plug all the way in?
