Good luck on your finals!!! :-p
And yep... it seems the battery only goes for like 10-12 hours...
It's not bad... but their Cmoy lasted almost 20 on the same setting (i.e. I use my player+amp continuosly at work for up to 10 hours a day...)
Still find the amp a bit bright so I think this is part of the "sound signature" with the opamp I
bought it. It's not bad though and it's driving my D5000s well! Right now listening to Fiona Apple's Extraordinary Machine... great record
and everything sounds crisp and clear with good instrument separation. Bass response is really good too.
BTW, put up some Deadmau5 again this time with bass boost... uffff... I've never felt headphones vibrating this mad
without producing any kind of distortion whatsoever... not sure if it's due to the capability of the amp, the headphones or both!
My first Head-fi post...exciting stuff! :)
So I've recently acquired the D5000 (loving them so far...have just over 100 hrs burn in and they just keep getting better. Bass is just a tad heavy, but worth it for the overall sound sig.).
Which opamp option did you go for? Am getting the C421 and having trouble deciding between the 8620 and 2227? You mentioned the amp being a bit bright...would you choose the same opamp again?
Thanks in advance!
