Everyone hears differently. Dependent on how loud you like your music genres to be. Will not be an issue with with volume level over 20 steps, high gain mode. Low level listening might sound flat. Best to be wired in balance mode.

Hehe it looks like you want to push it to the max levels ;) I don't think anything is good at max but the combination is definitively ok.

I generally listen to my HE-4, balanced and on high gain.  But I'm usually at volume 9 of 80.  The sound is very enjoyable, fast, and musical.  I definitely recommend purchasing the TCXO upgrade and the DIR9001 SPDIF module for the 10.33.  The WM8805 is much warmer, but too smooth for my tastes.  The DIR9001 livened things up and tightened the bass a touch.

 

Remember, planar require burn in (more so than dynamic drivers) imho.  I almost sent my HE-4 back, but after a week or two and some brain burn-in, they have become my daily-user headphone.  The HE-6 and HE-4 have similar power requirements.

Thanks, good to know! Mine should be here today. I bought both the headphones and the amp used, so burn in shouldn't be an issue. Lets see how it goes.

so I have the NFB-10.33, installed driver version 2.0 according to this page:

 

http://www.audio-gd.com/pro/dac/USB32/USB32EN_2.htm

 

The audio gd shows up as an "SPDIF Interface' after driver installation and restart. Shouldn't it show up just as "speaker"? That's what all my other DACs do. In any case, I don't get any sound out of it. I am running Windows 10. Anyone here running the 10.33 on Windows through USB? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
