I know it. Now I have another option to consider between this the magni and the O2.

It might be just a button. It might also be on the side we can't see in the picture. Hopefully it isn't a permanent feature. Either way, I'm going to find out soon enough and write a review.
As to Mad's comment about it nearly having the desktop E9k's power, the E9k is 900 mW @ 32Ω (150mW @ 300Ω), while the Monte Blanc is >850mW @ 32Ω (don't yet know what @ 300Ω). By comparison, the E17 produces ~250mW @ 32Ω. The Mont Blanc also has an output impedance of merely <0.5, and I believe it also has lower gain than the E9k which may make it easier to provide enough current to lower impedance headphones without being too loud to listen to... I'm not sure I understand if that's completely true, but if I can enjoy tons of powah (in the palm of my hand!!!) without being limited to working at the bottom of the volume dial (because of too much gain), then I'll be one more happy camper.

Ironically before I got the Magni, I was scared it might not have enough gain. In reality, the Magni gets loud a bit too early on it's volume knob, which might be problematic for sensitive headphones. Even using the 150ohm Yuin G1a, the volume is maybe at around 10 o clock. I'll have to check again.

Just felt over this http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/Unsere-Highlights-des-Jahres-2012-jetzt-stark-reduziert-:_:606.html a MMX for 270 euro, seems pretty cheap. Ain't those the same af dt 990 premium 250 ohm?.

They are 300 £ on amazon. So it seems like they are pretty cheap :O?

Anyone? :)

Amazon here in the States have them for $280... not sure what that means on your side, though the one you linked seems custom, which adds to the cost by a bit.

Chico, contrary to their look, the Yuin clip ons are actually open back. Just found out, lol. No wonder their openness is so similar to the KSC35/75.

I love these. My only gripe is that friggin clip ons are so anal when it comes to how close their are to your ears. So hard to judge them accurately...

Im considering the K702 Anniversaries. I hear they actually share a resemblance to the HD650 with a more open sound, and understandably not as warm (very hard to be as warm as the 650). That begs an audition. I already know the soundstage won't be as big as the Q701/K701 though, but should still be quite open.

I may buy them...just might. If I do, Chico, you will be the first to get them, with the full intention of getting you to make one of your awesome comparisons, as well as pad swapping conclusions.

IF I get them... I still need to figure what im gonna do with what I have first.

I'm from the Europe/Denmark, so the prices is abit difference. 

But how is the Beyer mx 300 compared to any of the other DT 770, 880 and 990. As by now i have decided the dt 990 premium 250 ohm. But if they are identical then the MX 300 is abit cheaper :)

Hey guys!

I read a lot of threads on head-fi and other websites to find a headset or a headphone + mic, I spent more than 20 hours on it but well it's complicated :)

 

In fact, at the beginning I wanted a great headset for gaming particularly for positioning, but that could also be good for 5.1 or 7.1 movies and not bad for music too. Another difficulty is that I want to play on ps3, xbox 360 or pc with that headset. My pc is an alienware M17x R3 that can’t do Dolby Digital Live, so it seems that I need an external sound card (like asus sonar U3 or creative x-fi titanium HD), that I will probably get anyway as the sound card in the laptop is not that great.

 

When I found this great thread, I begin interested in mixamp as it seems to be very useful to improve the sound “quality”. However it doesn’t seem to be that great on pc ! The Recon 3D could do the work but, based on MLE thoughts on it, if Dolby is better I would prefer to use Dolby!

 

I also read lot of things lately about stereo headphones like AKG K701 with an amp such as Fiio E10 or E17 but would it be good on consoles? (I don’t know if MLE had the opportunity to try it as it does only Stereo?)

 

It seems that the Skullcandy Plyr 1 could be the perfect headset for me but I don’t really want to wait until April! What I really want is to be amazed by the sound I’m hearing while playing or watching movies, can someone enlighten me?

Some might be interested in my final choice.

 

 

I just ordered a Q701 (230$) and a HD598 (200$) and a Xonar Essence ST (200$). I hope I don't have to return them. ;)

The Q701 and HD598 are more similar than anything, no idea why you went for both...

Testing both, returning one. Thanks to Amazon's return policy.

 

Could you recommand a good headset which sounds a little bit warmer than the HD598 (something like the HD650 but cheaper :D )

558...

Headset? PC360. Literally what you want as a headset that sounds like the 598 but warmer.

Sorry, I meant Headphone...

 

Does the 558 sound warmer/less analytic than the 598?

Yes. Very similar but warmer and more fun. I actually like it more.

I think the Q701 blows both of them away in any case.
