Am I to take it that this thing is too hot to use in a jacket pocket, then?

 

The DX100 gets pretty warm, but I get the impression that the 627 runs hot ..?

depending on the hp used, It's equally as warm as the dx100 smily_headphones1.gif

the portaphile runs cooler when you load it with something power hungry, in my case a T50rp

I'm contemplating using it with sensitive CIEMs

It will certainly work in your jacket pocket, but it will get a tad hot.  Certainly won't burn you by any means but you'll feel a little extra warmth.  I'd just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't overheat, but you really should be fine.  It was designed to run at this temperature (class A so naturally there is a lot of energy lost through heat).

LOL...yeah, hence the outrageous 4 hr battery life, right?  ;-)

 

 

Still, the 627x looks set to remedy that.
