Ive seen the Dragonfly and UDAC2 at the Magnolia section, next to the good headphones.

The ESW9 is a great portable headphone with really liquid mids, warm sound, and good bass. BB sells them.

hear nice things about the dragonfly.

Know any good mixamps like the DSS?

 

I don't know if I should get a new set of can's now but just for lulz how do they sound compaired to the 558's or 598's.

The DT series of headphones DO interest me however.

Best Buy sells the Mixamp, apparently, and that will be better than the DSS in terms of functionality.

The ESW9 is closed, so it doesnt have the airyness or clarity of those Senns. The ESW9 however has a thick sound with intimate vocals. It's...different.

Genres I listen to are rock, metal, techo, and trailer music think two steps from hell and brand x, which type of sound do you think fits better for those?

Personaly the 558's are my first REAL headphones that I own so I don't have the most experience. Though clarity is something I enjoy greatly.

Hmm, the ESW9 isn't a fast headphone, so not sure it's for you.

You sure BB sells the mixamp? Been checking online at there site and i don't see it anywhere.

Yes, some people here have bought it directly at the store. Gotta remember, the Mixamp was hard to get for a while, and just came back in stock on Astro's site. Not sure how that affects Best Buy's stock.

MLE the new layout is great! 

 

Clicking around the reviews just noticed when you click to show on the labtec mic it takes you to the top of the page.  Try it out.

Thanks for catching that, executioner. I have no idea why, but no matter what I do, it re-directs to the top of the page. So I'll just leave it without spoiler tags (it's a short entry anyways).

If they sell a brand of something you like then they can usually get any product the company makes.  I was told that by a magnolia sales person.

They need to start stocking some Sennheiser HD650s, AKG K702 65th Anniversaries, Philips Fidelio X1s then. biggrin.gif

They sell all three brands.

Dunno about headphone amps though.

Hmm... maybe it warrants a TRY? Lol.

Hmm, cal, if you have problems, I'm sure I would. frown.gif

OMGOMG, My Magni and Modi are in the city... sadly I'll be sleeping when they arrive, but at least I'll have them at home. <3

edit: Lol, Got my HE-400 back, but with velours on! So no more pleather, and two pairs of velours.

SO glad to have them back. Now just waiting on my Schiit stack to arrive, then the Yuin G1A next week.

BOOM HERE THEY ARE

I measured my head yesterday and apparently we have a similar head size. Roughly 45.5 cm. Is the he-400 comfortable around your head?

 

Let me know how the mixamp+magni+he-400 combo works. I might be mistaken but the sound coming off the mixamp is just amplified when it goes from the mixamp through 3.5mm to rca cables > magni and then the headphones. It is not distorted or otherwise altered.

The HE-400 has enough space. No worries. It should fit your noggin.

Yes, you're using the Mixamp as a pre-amp, so the signal is amplified by the Mixamp and then amplified by the Magni. Not completely ideal, but the only way to get a good, amped Dolby Headphone signal for your headphones. Trust me, it's considerably better to amp after the Mixamp than using the Mixamp alone.
