Right. I was more inquiring because using the built-in DAC I found even low gain quite loud before the mod.

I sent my amp to Nick and they will be shipped back out to me tomorrow. I'll have them back by Friday hopefully. I opted for -12db, it should help immensly with the sensitive UERMs.

Has anyone tried pairing a ATH A2000x with the 6S MKII?

Have not tried it with the a2000x but it does not pair well with my w3000anv and esw10jpn. The a2000x behaves similarly so I don't think they will pair well.

Could you please elaborate? I paired my UHA-6S.MKII with an ESW10JPN and I thought it sounded fine.

how does the HD650 perform with this amp, not enough power to drive it right?

Based on the other cans I tried with it the Leckerton should be fine for HD650s.

On the right amp the ESW10JPN sounded very very good (the Ear HP-4 and Pico amp are two of them).

 

On the UHA6SMKII it sounded mediocre. It is a far cry from when it is driven from the Ear HP-4 and Pico amp.

 

There are other headphones that sounded much better than the ESW10JPN when driven with UHA6SMKII imho.

Similar experience. ATH-W1000X isn't a go for UHA-6S Mk.II either.

Amazingly, ATH-ES10 does sound pretty good with UHA-6S Mk.II. It's probably the only Audio Technica headphone I know of that doesn't hate the UHA-6S Mk.II.

I've driven the HD650 with my Leckerton at a head-fi meet it drives the headphone fine.

with 250ohm 880s I could max out the volume and be comfortable, same with the mad dogs

Slim chance, but has anyone listened to both UHA-6S MKII and Muse PD1+? How would they compare?
post #1695 of 2091

Speaking of synergy, the UHA paired with my diymod ipod & EX1000 using a pure silver lod makes me smile every time I listen to the music. Something just special to my ears with that super clean sound, extensions of the lowers and bass ( I am not a basshead but I want that extension). The thing is I can listen to music with the vol knob either turned to min or to the max. At max, it really doesn't hurt my ears as the sound is still clean with excellent separation and no clouding or distortion of the sound. Everything seems to be zoomed in or out to proportion without intruding each other. Amazing. Never had I heard piano so good.

 

I also have the RX MK2, but it just doesn't match the sound from the UHA.
