Anyway I am using these plugged directly into my motherboard audio output (Realtek ALC898) and they sound ok I guess. The bass is pretty boomy and overshadows a lot of the finer/delicate/detailed quiet highs I really like (if that makes sense)

I just need a good amp to drive it, then I can give a good review.

I have heard this pair of phones is rather finicky with its amp pairing. What are some good ones out there? will probably get a SS amp/ other one so I can listen to electronic with them

 

The motherboard's on-board audio's high output impedance might be causing the W1000X's to have a bloated (louder, less detailed) bass.

The Schiit Magni headphone amplifier ($99+ tax/shipping) has a very low output impedance (>1-Ohm). 

The O2 Objective 2 headphone amplifier ($130) also has a low output impedance.

 

Here is a nice Grado mini adapter cable,

7 inch 1/4" female to 1/8" male adapter ($14.95).

My Modi/Magni combo sound great with my W1000x's. To my beaten down hearing anyway!

It's funny. Finally got a chance to listen to a pair. Actually blew me away;) having listened to many AT's, I think they got their order wrong. This should be considered a flagship of their range!!!!

Interesting. What were they being driven by?

Hi

 

This Headphone is good  for music listening and gaming ?

 

The noise reduction is also good than the dt 770 or MMX 300 ?

WHY has this thread died! CMON GUYS it's  time for a REBIRTH!!! 

 

also @Meduseld I would prefer teh w1000x for music over the 770 or the MMX 300, how ever the Beyers are going to be a touch better for gaming 

 

also just got a lovely cable built for my w1000x! 

 

Check it out! I'll have pics of the headphone soon 

 

Kudos to cCasper for the nice build on this bad boi
