That's just telling you how much power it's putting into 60ohms.  That's not the lowest it will go.  You can plug IEMs into it if you want.

The M-stage's actual  HP jack output impedance is 5 ohms.

 

The M-stage is probably a little overkill for the X1 though.  They're not that hard to drive.  A think a cheaper amp would work fine with them.


Thanks for the explanations.

I must consider to buy stronger amps for my next cans, probably k712 or hd650.

If I buy cheaper less strong amps now for X1, then I must buy another amp later. More money to spend.

Too bad I can't find magni/modi seller here. I must wait for my brother from USA to visit me here next year.

Don't know if it's been mentioned or not yet, but Plantronics has just released their new RIG headset + mixamp combo.

 

Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-Stereo-Gaming-Headset-Xbox-360/dp/B00EV00N02

I absolutely love the removable/replaceable cable and mic! Otherwise, I'm not to fond of the mixamp as I don't need it and would love to see the headset sold by itself.

I've owned Plantronics headsets and I wasn't impressed with the sound. With this headset, once you take their mixer out of the loop I wouldn't expect it to be much better than the ones I've heard. The mixer piece is the key selling point of that system, designed to mix in other devices like cell phones and mp3 players. It's not a Mixamp alternative. There are other headsets that have detachable mics and there are certainly better sounding headphones than the Plantronics sets I've heard before. Heck, my KSC 75 blew away my old Gamecom headset and was more comfortable as well.

It's actually an 80gb MGS4 PS3, the one with software backwards compat. I have an original 60gb boxed up with a bum bluray laser tho.

 

Initial Impression? I didn't know about the box full of popcorn and it was dumped all over my bed lol. I'm still getting accustomed to the sound but so far I like it :)

 

Also, notice anything different?

What pads are those, and do they sound anywhere near the stock pads? If so, LEND ME THEM, PRETTY PLEASE! biggrin.gif

Sorry about the popcorn. I didn't have the patience to figure out how to put the MA900s back in their 'carton', so I left it out. frown.gif

They're from my donor pair of vintage Beyer DT901's with a bum driver. Slightly increased soundstage at the cost of some of the bass. Probably because of the extra thickness of the pads. They're twice as thick but have a smaller inner diameter.

Bah... not willing to make those sacrifices. frown.gif
post #17187 of 30406

lol, yeah, I wouldn't either.

 

I kinda wonder if I can just compensate by just turning up the volume a bit.

Part of me just wants to stuff the pads with memory foam or something. The pads are fine overall, they just lack density. It's almost like they aren't even pads, but a cloth that rests between the headphone and your head. I dunno why Sony went with such a thin pad. To be fair, the Steelseries Siberia pads are also really thin, but they retain their shape a lot better. If only they had a large diameter...

That premium pricing fever of flagships also caught AKG. I am sure that's a dissapointment to many K7xx fans. 

post #17190 of 30406

Anyone had experience with the DT770 Pros? I wasn't sure if they were uncomfortable on my jaw because they were new or what. The ear cups were absolute heaven on my ears, but I returned them because of the fact that they clamped the arms of my glasses to my head and sat a little uncomfortably on my jaw. The mids also sounded recessed to me but I have a Xonar DG sound card now (Not sure if it'll make a difference but hey). I just want a really comfortable pair of full size headphones, preferably with velour pads that I can use for EDM / Pop music and games.
