one last question. is there any difference between the o2 by mayflower electronics and the o2 by jds labs?

The faceplate and volume knob are different in the cheapest Mayflower model versus the standard JDS, but the guts are the same.

^^Yep, the guts should always be the same, thats what make it an o2. And the o2 sounds great with hd600's :)

?   Can't really understand this comment.  I have my iPhone 4, I have my 600 ohm Beyers, I plug them in, the volume is about 85-90% and it's still a good listen.  Not as dynamic as my desktop set-up.  But very listenable.  What do you find "hard to believe"?  Or do you think I'm lying / trolling?

 

I've actually been listening to the HD600s most of the afternoon straight from my iP4.  It's been very enjoyable smile.gif.

 

Perhaps I should gave my membership here revoked rolleyes.gif

my hd600s sound okay right out of my galaxy tab 10,1 but I couldn't say they sound "enjoyable" compared to them with a desktop set up.

Can't comment about the G-tab.  Haven't heard it - so have no idea how the audio is on it.  Have you ever tried your HD600s out of an iP4?  It might just surprise you.

I don't think so, there isn't usually a difference between the on board sound in phones but I haven't done any listening through a iphone so I don't know.

It's clear you have never listened to an iPhone. They are actually among the best sounding DAPs on the market.

The iPhone & iPod are a bit louder and more powerful than the majority of Android devices, in my experience. I tried my HD600 thru my brothers iP4 and was surprised at how loud it got. It sounded good too.

They are when you use a DAC with the LOD function it has O_______________________________o

 

And the HD600s with out the backs are really enjoyable I can now say I prefer them over the Q701s 100% I might try and make some custom grills that are less "reflective?" In our manufacturing class.

What happened with the arm?

Ouch - hope it heals well, and doesn't cost too much time with the studies ......
