Just got my Yulong D100 today, I love it. Must thanks to this great review, it's really help.
I'm looking to upgrade my headphones from beyerdynamic DT-1350 to flagship like HE-500, HD650 or something like that but not sure which one will go well with D100.
I plan to move to higher grade DAC/Amp in the future (but not right now). Does anyone has suggestion on the headphones?
I would definitely steer clear of the HD650. When I had a D100 I thought it was very much underpowered to drive the 650 sufficienctly. I've heard it with the HE500 and it was adequate but did
not bring the HE500 to its highest potential either. Be careful with any of the orthos as they need power. If you have shops in your area with a variety of headphones to audition I'd advise bringing the D100 with you and listen to the combination together. Anything other than that, you're guessing...and you don't want to be wrong. Long story short....you'll probably get sufficient volume out of just about any headphone with your D100...but volume and bringing out the headphone's true character are two different things. Good luck with the search and enjoy your new toys.
