Yeah, they look well made
Now now Hifi, you're starting to act like an elitist. I didn't expect that from you.
Head-Fi's Posting Guidelines
Mine found head-time last night and today. Yesterday I just got a new smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and I tried the HE-500's on it, directly into the headphone jack. I expected the sound to be offensive, but it wasn't. I did have to turn up the volume, way up.
Then I plugged the Note 3 into my Bifrost, etc and boy did that really sound good. I used Neutron and Google Play Music (with my streaming subscription). USB Audio worked perfectly fine with the Note 3. Then again USB Audio worked fine with my previous Galaxy S3.
No clipping, no obvious Intermodulation Distortion with the HE-500's I turned it up a notch below maximum volume, it wasn't loud but was workable. I didn't try it for long as I was more interested in connecting to my DAC. I will try some more during the week. I'll also give it a shot with my XBA-H3 IEMs. So far the Internal DAC and Amp exceeded expectations,of course I wasn't expecting too much. I'll have to see how it fares with my HD600's, which at 300 Ohms is a different animal to drive.
