I don´t know if I even like them better than the M-100 for home listening...

 

 

 

And a little bit of cotton... Wonderfull!!!

 

The soundstage goes several levels up!!

The cotton goes in the cups. You have a link in my previous post to the mod instructions.

what about the set up though, will sansa clip+ to Lindy premium hifi headphones be high enough volume?

I had a look at the thread, seems easy enough

Yes, these headphones are SUPER easy to drive.  That is the exact same setup I have and they sound great.

IMO, they can go really really loud. At least with all my sources and I mean without amping.

I use:

- Galaxy Note II N7100

- Nexus 10

- Lenovo Yoga

- iMac 27" late 2009

- Paired sometimes with Fiio E07K

 

   But I never raise the volume to 100% with any of my devices (completely impossible, to be honest, that would blow my ears).

Finally! they should be coming today, very excited biggrin.gif!!!

I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed! Just remember to leave it 24h or more with some books in between to reduce the clamping force. After the first week of use, these will become very very comfortable. You can take advantage of it and maybe burn them in, that's up to you.
