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?

post #1447 of 1697

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!!!
