Finally got a pair of these and I have to say they sound terrific.      However, it's clear that many people were right when they said the claims of needing jigawatts to power these are terribly exaggerated. These can easily be driven off a smartphone or a tablet. No need to spend tons of money on amplifiers. Watts are watts objectively speaking.     
If you purchase the Apogee groove along with any of the other headphones I'm listing, take $30 off the price.  (HERE)       Condition: These headphones are in very good condition overall. For an additional $15 I can add in the obnoxious green cable from the Q701 that's incredibly long (I think 20ft or so).   Included: Headphones 1/4" Screw Adapter Original black cable Original Box         Payment:  Paypal, MO, or check (shipment after payment clears). Price...

Price includes paypal fees and shipping costs with USPS priority service. Shipping to CONUS only for...

Wanted to see if anyone's got a pair they aren't using before I a pair.   Shipping to CONUS.
Got a kind of weird issue with my DC-1, after moving to a new location. Hooked up to the computer with a USB cable and then to two different amplifiers (SE and balanced).   Hooking up the RCA output to a SE amplifier I get a pretty sustained low level static buzz/hiss. If I unplug the USB cable from the DC-1, no buzz/hiss If I take the SE amplifier and unplug the RCA from the DC-1, no buzz/hiss.  Hooking up to a balanced amplifier via the XLR outputs, I get no...
 I'm with you. between flac and a good 320mp3 it's not as blatantly different as I thought it was, and it really depends on the quality of the recording. On really well recorded stuff I can pretty easily pick out flac, but on a lot of garbage recordings, I have a pretty hard time.  I shudder about hooking up a pair of HD700 to a rag. Isn't the combination too bright? Have you modded the HD700 at all?
 Hansotek explains 'scales' below, but to elaborate a bit, some headphones tend to get better with better amplification (whether power or quality) and DACs. Some other headphones tend to kind of sound the same whether you run them off a $200 amplifier or $1000 amplifier (cost being a direct, albeit flawed, method of comparison).  For example, IMO the Audeze LCD-2 doesn't really sound a whole lot better with a better DAC and amplifier.  On the other hand the HE-6 will show...
  Seems to be some scheme that runs across many expensive items (headphone, speakers, monitors, computer parts, etc). Looks like they try to get you to contact their email address and then make the purchase outside Amazon (i.e. "send us your credit card number, promise we're honest!)  Guaranteed scam to get your credit card number. 
  Dunno what kind of power the EF5 output, but I know the Audio-GD NFB10SE was a bit lean on power and I think it was around 5W into 50ohms. It was fine for most music, but anything that had a large dynamic range it couldn't quite get enough spl.  Then there's the other side which is how well the HE-6 scales with better amplification.
