iBasso D42 "Mamba" with dual dacs! !! Hey Hey! Improved Starting on Page 76 . - Page 61

post #901 of 1153
Im looking to buy maybe a set of full sized cans. Which ones will sound good with the D4? Budget will be 250 or so when i pull the trigger. I dont wanna have to buy another amp right now so id like something that can be driven pretty well with the d4. Sorry for the vague question but ive done some research and just don tknow which ones might not be pushed quite good enough with it.

It did take me quite a while to settle on the D4, but I found myself today looking for (way more expensive ) alternatives...
me neither trying to find an alternative amp for that price, was looking at emmeline ones but they are like 2X as much

I've ordered both the T3 and the D4. T3 came with EMS (regular post office) and D4 came with DHL. No customs issues with any of them. I made iBasso write a lower value on both packages.

I was wondering if they ship via USPS and if there had been any customs issues.

Open or closed? What types of music do you listen to? Are you a bass head?

Naww no basshead at all just quick fast accurate bass makes me happy, my headphone of choice right now is the Mage by UM and they are far from bass heavy. Open or closed doesnt matter too much either. I guess i would prefer closed just for the fact i could take them to work if i wanted and it wouldnt be loud for anyone. Types of music pretty much everything, from metal, to trance, country, even some classical.

So what would people say is the most demanding headphone that the D4 can drive with usb power well?

D4 will drive most Grados, Denon and Ultrasone well on 5v USB power, and seems a little lacking with HD600/800 but it's very useable, but struggles dearly on 5v with HE-5, 600 ohm AKG K240M or K1000. 9v ups the ante with hard to drive phones, but K1000 still don't like it.

What about the 650? Is it about the same with 600? I'm still debating which of the 2 to get but I guess I'll just have to read up on both.

If I knew with the HD650 I would have mentioned it, but I don't have a pair.  I think the HD650 need more powerful amps than 600/650, and with what amps I had at the time the HD650 did not sound better than the 600.

does anyone know when the new d10 is coming out?  an i wonder how it will compare to the topaz?

post #913 of 1153

Ok one more question, can the usb be used to for power when you are trying to amp some source other than your computer?

post #914 of 1153

Curious to know how the D4 would compare to the new Audio-gd Sparrow?   Or the Fun, for that matter.  Everyone seems to say that desktop amps are so much better.  But if the DAC is the best part of the Audio-gd stuff, and the D4's DAC is the same (or better), than I don't see it.  Just wondering if anyone's seen an A/B anywhere, esp for IEMs.

No, the USB has priority, and the Aux In/Out becomes an output.  The Aux Input will only work on battery.
