Ibasso D2+ BOA: volume/gain question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Is it dangerous to keep my volume/gain knob at a little past 3 o'clock? I can't get any of my headphones to wang unless it's at 3 o'clock.

"To wang"?

That's a lot of volume, don't destroy your hearing.

I don't know what headphones you're using but it seems as if the Boa isn't enough to drive them properly. I've had this amp and it was good with efficient headphones like Grados, Denon 1001 and IEMs, but didn't stand a chance with cans like the HD650 or K-70x.

I currently have Sennheiser HD280, HD580, and Sony MDR-7506. They're all equally loud when at 3 o'clock. I'm just really concerned about the volume knob being turned so far up.

I wouldn't worry about the amp. It should be able to take it.

I would expect for you to turn up the volume knob significantly more for HD580 than 280 and 7506.  3 o' clock should be an awful lot for 7506 and 280.  They are all equally loud at that knob position?

What's your source?

I was expecting the same, the volume knob to much higher on the HD580 than the HD280 and 7506 but it's not the case. Only when I plug the headphones straight from the source is when I notice the difference, it's a slight difference though, not significant.

 

I'm using a Sansa Fuze.

 

Maybe I'll try getting a D6.
