Enjoy! They have some very nice mids happy_face1.gif I eq down the bass a bit on my Clip and that makes them more 'neutral'/balanced sounding

Sorry to be dragging this thread out of the grave, but I was wondering if there's any point in buying a pair of Sony MDR-7506 if I have the K240-DF and an amp to drive them?

Also, does anyone know when they stopped making the K240-DF model with the small 3.5mm jack?

Anyone on Headfi still enjoying their 240DFs?

Yes, I am. They've got a new lease of life since I got my Chord Mojo, which drives them beautifully. I often use them for checking the midrange of mixes I'm doing. I recently grab a used pair of K500s as well and they are an astonishingly beautiful listen!

They can be picky can to drive properly.  I recently bought a Rouge Audio Sphinx for my Speakers but it also has a headphone output.  Unfortunately it does not seem powerful enough for the K240DF or my K400 and requires the volume to be set almost to the point of clipping.  Both are still excellent cans and continue to bring me musical enjoyment!

I'm also looking for a portable amp able to drive the K240DF to decent levels.  I'm sure the Chord Mojo sounds great but I'm not a fan of it's looks and it's more costly than I'd like.

 

The main portable I'm considering is the Meridian Explorer2 which isn't too expensive, has a nice clean look and good specs.  I'd like to head if anyone else has had success pairing the DF with a portable.

 

Thanks!

For just an amp without a DAC, I use and would highly recommend the Cayin C5. It drives the DFs easily and sounds excellent. The bass boost switch is just what the DFs need and, in my case, gave them a new lease of life even before I got the Chord.

Regarding the Chord Mojo, I personally really like the design but even if I didn't, that would not sway me away in any way from a unit that sounds as good as it does.

...Sorry, to add to that, I used an HRT Microstreamer as the DAC with the C5 when I was going portable.
