Finally! My Little Dot Mk IV SE / Beyer DT-990 (600 0hm) combo - Page 2

post #16 of 29
Glad to hear your having such a good time. I've heard a lot of headphones, but the beyers just seem to get balance right to my ears.

furyagain,

as for the gain setting, there is no right or wrong setting.

 

however if you feel there is a need for a higher gain setting, and the amp allows, you have the choice. the Mk IV allows good choices.

 

I am using a 600 ohm phone and I set the setting to 10 (max). I suppose the answer to your question, you will have to set the gain setting according to match the phone used.

 

so why don't you try the various gain setting and have a good listen?

 

Taken from LD Mk IV manual

 

Switch 1 Position   Switch 2 Position     Gain Recommendation

OFF                                OFF                          10      Low impedance and/or low sensitivity headphones

ON                                 OFF                            5      Medium impedance/sensitivity

OFF                                ON                             4      Medium impedance/sensitivity

ON                                 ON                              3      High impedance and/or high sensitivity

 

Note: The gain settings also affect the pre-amplifier output.

These gain settings are recommendations only and there is no “correct” gain for any particular headphone.

You are encouraged to test each setting out with your headphone(s) to determine which setting sounds best

for you.

Congratulations on what sounds like an awesome combination Tiramisu515, really great photos too! I just placed an order for the MK IV SE myself, along with a Little Dot DAC_I and HD 650. I can't wait for it all to arrive so I can start enjoying it.

 

I'm glad to hear you're liking the 990/600 with the MK IV, it was a difficult choice between those, the 880/600 and HD 650 for me. Although I'm starting out with the HD 650 I plan to try the Beyer's in the future.

Hi jr41

 

'wow, that is great shopping. Envy you. In fact you won't go wrong with the combo you just made. It's personal preference.

 

Both senn and beyer sound quite differently, so it may not be a bad thing to own both cos each may be more suited for different type of music. In addition, depending on your mood or emotion, you may perfer listening to one and not the other. So good to have a senn and beyer if you ask me. The MK IV se will be able to drive either phones easily.

 

Hope to hear your impression here when your new toys asrrived. Keep us in tune.
