I own a nintendo 3DS and have noticed that even with the volume all the way up, the headphone output is rather quiet.
My main headphones I use are grado 225i. These phones have a nice, wide distinct soundstage, so maybe that might be interfering with trying to get a big sound. I would love to get some hd598s as they seem a bit more suitable for gaming.
I decided to try and remedy this problem and ended buying an e6 & e11. Well, I love using them with my iphone4 but I noticed I can't get a decent volume out of the 3DS without it also being accompanied by background hiss. Granted it's practically impossible to hear when there's music, but it just sorta bothers me knowing it's there.
Anyone notice the weak amplification from the 3DS? Anyone have any solutions?
