I used to live in Russia and fruits (leaving aside apples) were prohibitively expensive (in comparison with other countries I lived) The image is not mine so here's the artist website http://www.porcupinephotography.com/blog/

Haha, he was wondering why they were so huge and I got him to put them on! He turned up my 627 MICRO!!! (super-powerful portable amp it is too) to full volume and I immediately unplugged it and took it back :p

pfff dude I have two iBasso Balanced Portables, and when I had my pb1 I had some moron Crank my pb1 to max voulume with my DT 880 600 ohm BALANCED... which means there was a chance he was shoving upwards of like 600mW into that thing >.> drivers are rated for 200mW max. I don't remember the sensitivity so HOPEFULLY he didn't wreck them but yea... I know the feeling, and for the record balanced amplifiers for the most part are more powerful than their single end counter parts, the new pb2 I got can run like 2.4w into 32 ohms, which means if I ran my D2k out of it on High gain... it would xPlode BUT the good new is the D2k is rated at about 2w! And I HIGHLY doubt your amp is shoving 2w per channel! The pb2 I own can but only with the correct Buffers and when it's on high gain. 

 

Either way I know the feeling, and rest assuared that I doubt your amp can push the d2k to it's 2000 mW or 2W max

I was still scared as hell though, like you said it's really not a good feeling seeing someone turn the volume knob up all the way! I'm aware of the power of balanced amps compared to single-ended but the 627 MICRO can put over 18 volts into a pair of headphones so I was really worried. There was no problems though as I tested them using sine tones as well as a music afterwards but next time I'm holding my rig myself just so I don't end up almost ****ting myself again :o

The pb1 can run about 25 Volts the pb2 can run up to 32 volts of power... and some moron shoved 25 VOLTS into my freaking dt 880!

 

It's not the volts you need to be worried about it's the total wattage, although... I wish I knew the math to figure out how mny watts that idiot was shoving into the DT 880, although Ive been told though that at around 130 mW the DT 880 would be deafening

 

that said I also listen to my music at a range of 45-65 Dbs q.q some times as low as 20 dbs in teh morning when I'm tired as piss
