I tried this with a 240Kbps MP3 file on my Duet with no sibilance. I will update this post to reflect the ODAC/O2 when I get a chance.

My son who is almost two, has found my DT 880s, and always comes to me and asks to listen to music on them. When I'm on my computer he'll grab them and put them on and say "Music!, Music!" Guess I have another beyer fanboy in the making biggrin.gif

Lol, your son is awesome. Just dont let him listen too much or he might grow up to become an audiophile and spend all your money on headphones biggrin.gif

Today I put on my DT880 and wow. For the first time, I felt the amazing thumping bass on these monsters.

Then, I realised that I have been driving my 2.1 speakers with my Little Dot Mk IV at the same time as my headphones. The visceral bass (literally) came from the subwoofers when I had the DT880 on my head! 

 

But hey, it sounds pretty darn amazing. I'll keep playing music this way! 

 

I have to say, I don't feel like I'm missing much coming home to my DT800s from my SR009 set up at work. It's a more "fun" sound.

+1; I brought my 880s to work thinking I was going to ship them off, seller changes his mind so I've been listening to them. They're fun and still an awesome set to listen to.
