And it will be for taking photos for the revised 2.0 guide so trust me that I will be very careful with the protocols.

I'll only need 1 person to commit.
Jerg, from all the way in India count me in, shipping and all. Please let me know final amounts and I'll PayPal you. God, I am converting nouns to verbs.

Aw man, talk about missing an opportunity... I don't suppose you'd be willing to mod a second pair would you jerg?

Sorry guys, I only needed 1 volunteer and merkil jumped on it. Anyway I will be writing up a very clear guide from the photos that will be taken modding his pads, so you guys will be well off modding the pads based on that upcoming guide.

I've recently tested D7000 with Schiit Lyr, but it has a lot of hiss and I am afraid I may burn them when I forget to lower the volume.

Oh yeah, same thing here. Lots of hum with the D7000.

EQing it down just a bit is working great for me. The finishing touch.

So I purchased a Hifimediy Sabre DAC and a Fiio E12 to power the HE-400s. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I can't imagine using headphones without EQ after few last weeks, it helps so much in making cans sound exactly the way you want. Used iPhone 4S - FiiO E11 - CAL! today in work ... and it was like "what the.... is this" ? compared to home EQed headphones (actually doesn't matter which ones).

Good Afternoon Everyone. Does anyone have any experience with using the HE-400 with any of the little dot tube amps? I have a MkII and I know from reading much of the forums that several people had the MkIII. I feel like these amps are possibly not driving the HE-400 very well or they are simply not the best match. I would like to hear some people's input on this though 

 

Thanks! 

post #7976 of 17953

The MKII is plenty powerful for the HE-400, but the MKII itself isn't a very refined amp, not for the money.

Anyone know who makes the MOST POWERFUL all-in-one DAC+AMP Combo? Something with good Bass and smooth highs with good voltage output would be nice. 

post #7978 of 17953

Call me crazy but this is the way I like my HE-400s sounding through my M&M stack.

For an unbalanced dedicated headphone amp, the Schiit Lyr will put out the most power that I know of, and you can pair it with the Schiit Bifrost DAC - not an all in one solution, but they stack and look nice.

I've never heard the Marantz, but it might be hard to sell your Asgard (depending on what price you list it) since Schiit is releasing the Asgard 2.
