Well, I'm talking to support now, and they're saying that the E17 could have a soft clip filter in it (Magni doesn't have one), which basically softens up the peaks in the sound, or Magni is overdriving my headphones. I just emailed fiio to see if that's the case. They said if I ship out my Magni, and there's nothing wrong with it, I'm going to have to pay return shipping...money grubbers. If there's nothing wrong with it, I want my money back.
I've tried my Pro700MK2 driver- clips earlier than my AD2000 driver

I'm pretty confident that the buzzing sound only mainly occurs at around 50-65Hz. The frequencies lower than it are victim of it too, but you would have to boost up those frequencies more or up to volume to hear it, more than you would have to for the 50-65Hz range.
EDIT 2: I think it may be my DAC (E17 using L7 adapter). It just seems like I can't go above the E17's volume with the magni without it clipping. So maybe, when you use the E17's dock out, you're still using the amplifier (you can still adjust the gain), and that's what's limiting me, probably, hopefully. So, I'm going to buy the modi (don't know when) and see if I can fix this.
