New Leckerton UHA-6S MKII Portable Headphone Amplifier Announced (Update User Impressions Added... - Page 107

post #1591 of 2185
Any recommendations for a $300 range closed full size cans that can push the mkii to its limit? I want neutral sounding cans. A slight bass emphasis is ok. I was debating between momentum or vmoda m100, but these are so sensitive and I want something that my Galaxy s4 wouldn't be able to drive without the MKII.

There are not that many headphones that will not be driven from S4 that is $300 and is closed. But DT1350 certainly improves a lot with MKII and if you listen with loud volumes, S4 might not be enough to power the DT1350. Also, DT1350 is neutral with very slight bass emphasis, just slightly warm. DT1350 is 80ohms, which is not that sensitive for a portable.

@gordec You could take a look at the 250Ohm variant of the Beyer DT770... but its relatively big, so at least I would not want to take it with me every day. On the other hand I also do not understand people using an amp on the go -- when there are lots of nice headphones that are perfectly suited to mobile use and can easily be driven by a phone output.

 

The DT1350 does not pose any problems to an iPhone, so I guess it can be used with an S4 without an amp as well. While not as efficient as the M-100 they are still quite sensitive.

Does anyone know of any players that work best with the leckerton? Something that can bypass a dap's internal dac and utilize the one offered by leckerton by any chance?

You could wait for FiiO X3 to come out this summer. For about $180 (MSRP) it has both true LO and a digital out.

Androids can do that as well as X3. Samsung GS3, GS4 and Note 2 are known to work with Leckerton.

Are there any DAPs available today? Also, regarding the X3, would I be using the usb connection to connect it to the Leckerton or the line out or digital out port?

Do I need to install additional software or will it work with direct usb connection?

No additional software I think. I didn't install anything special on my S3, and it works with out rooting too. It works really well and hasn't failed once on me. You can even charge the amp through S3. Just a micro usb to micro usb otg like http://hakshop.myshopify.com/products/micro-to-micro-otg works or you can just use a regular otg cable. Also, if you turn off your amp while playing something on S3, S3 will automatically stop your music.

There are other DAP with line outs, but most of them cost a good deal of money. Ibasso DX100, AK100, C4, CK4, iPod/Walkman(through LOD, only line out), and hifiman players to list a few.

Does S1/S2/S4 do the same?

I know that S4 supports USB audio out, and I'm not sure if S2 does(probably not), but S1 doesn't(I tried). And Note 1 doesn't work as well.
