I plan on it but i just want a blank black one. I find it hard to bring myself to pay $6 shipping on amazon for a 99 cent wristband. So i'll do the rubber bands until i find something.

Plus didn't you know that the rubber bands add to the bass?

The ipod case is silicone so velcro wont work.

Wow. You got quite a nice amp for it being your first amp.

I've just ordered this same amp, but am now really wishing my Cowon D2 had a true line out. I love the look of that Qables LOD as well.

Its funny, with normal 50ohm and less headphones, the D2 is miles above the iPod in sound quality. But now that I got the AKG 702's which really require an ext. amp, I wish I kept the ipod just for the lineout. Figures.

All my phones must be very easy to drive because I never need to turn it up much at all. I switched the gain over to the low/IEM setting via the 2 switches under the battery and its much better.

Sweet looking amp. I almost bought the 3Move based on having previously owned a Porta Corda MkIII-USB...great sounding amp/DAC but not so great looks.

I have no doubt that the 3 sounds excellent. The collector in me still wants one. My wallet holds me back.

Congrats on the amp! Now I just hope you don't get a case of upgradeitis. I've had a bad one for the last month or so and it's killing my wallet!

So, after a while of burning in - how doe the M50 and the Corda play together?
post #25 of 31
M50 has slow bass in that combination.
But bass is better than M50 used unamped

i have a 2move, does anyone know if the device can recharge 9volts if an ac adapter is plugged in?
post #27 of 31
I don't think any of the MOVE series can recharge battery.

@Guitarman - i'd recommend to put your amp in High Current/Low Gain mode. I believe that it is now set up on low current mode. From my past experiences High Current mode/low gain is the best configuration for your 3Move, you should obtain a better drive of your headphones. Wait till you try an home headamp from Jan - that's a different story

Sry for bumping this thread.
What is this switch in front of the amp ?



I read manual that both adjusting high gain-low gain and high current-low current are done inside the amp, which you have to screw it open. So I don't know what the above one does, can anyone explain ?

Thanks
