I just sent in my HeadRoom Micro Amp in to replace a couple of jacks. 1st time in 5 years and I rarely turn it or the Micro DAC off. Lets face it, 3.5mm jacks just don't have the superior connection the larger 1/4in jacks do. So I hooked up my HE-400's up to the headphone output of my Toshiba laptop and the volume level is barely about a whisper. Even with pink noise it doesn't get very loud at all. I have to wonder if an iPad or iPod or similar portable device would fare any better like advertised. Anyone out there try and it so, how well do they perform?

My advice, slow down. The 400 will sound very good from the x3. Use it for a month or so and get a feel for how good you think it is. I was on the 400 and e17 for nearly a year, and very happy, before the upgrade bug struck. The 400 doesn't need much amping to get to a very enjoyable level.

Cool...I certainly don't mind waiting I just wanted to make sure I could enjoy them when I got them.
