That should work quite well in your D4. At best, the rechargeables only deliver about half the play time of alkalines.

If you mostly use your D4 with USB input, and the switch in the 5v position, your rechargeables will last a very long time, as they will be unused in this configuration.

I've read that the D4 isn't enough to drive head phones like Sennheiser HD650. And it isn't developed for use with IEM's. What type of head phones would be perfect for use with the D4?

If you've read it, you must have also read which amps are capable to do what you want

Lets say the D4 would not satisfy your needs, find another amp mate

Well I too want to know what headphones , paired with the D4 have had a significant difference in sound quality amped and unamped. Apparently my ES7's are not good with this amp . or any amp at all. Would the ESW9a's or the Shure SRH840's be a better match?

The only headphones that I have found that do not pair well with the D4 are my K340s and K1000s, both of which require considerable drive for best results. It sounds very good with all of my other circumaural phones as well as my IEMs!

There are precious few phones that do not sound good with the D4, IMO.

Thank you HiFlight, that's just a wonderful answer
Sometimes Head-Fi gives too much information and one ends up only remembering the parts were people mention stuff they don't like about a certain product. Your answer is the opposite

I second HiFlight's thoughts on the D4.

Just ordered a D4! My HFI-780's are about to be a lot happier in a few days..

Cowon S9 > D4 > ATH-ES7's ?

And I would use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm interconnector to connect my S9 to the D4 correct ? I just feel kind of overwhelmed by all the information I'm trying to take in at the same time . Thanks to whoever answers my questions .
bumps,

i have similar question as i may be getting a zune or a cowon s9(boss eq settings),

so how would i hook up the d4 to these dap's?

Does this amp improve the sq of the srh840s specifically the bass and vocals? I want to buy this amp to improve the sq because the the zune hd and srh840s aren't doing it for me.

hey d4 users whats the Recommended burn-in time on the d4
post #465 of 1153
I would recommend about 20 hours burn in should do it, did for me.
