I'd agree. I have the Alcantara pads on my HP200, and they weren't made for the SoundMAGIC range..Maybe they'll do Shure's better, but they just don't do the HP200 justice.

It is an improvement in aesthetics, practicality, and portability.  Any differences in sound, though, would be very minor due to the only physical difference being the material used on the outside of the cups.

One thing I am sure of is Topping nx1 does not make a difference on the sound at all.

Tried many A-B's with dx90 but no :/ hp100 sounds good enough with the dx90.

 

Can anybody explain to me why?

Why would a $40 amp offer an improvement over a $400 DAP?

I am using Nx1 for the Havi b3 pro 1 that seems like a mistake in dev. stage smily_headphones1.gif
I know its absurd otherwise

But my Q is unanswered anyway.

The DX90 has a built-in amp and dac, and the amp section should be significantly better than the nx1.  If you did hear a difference, you would most likely prefer the DX90.

 

Anyways, differences caused by amping are often subtle and you may have to perform an A/B test to hear them.  There's a larger difference between unamped and amped than between 2 amps, especially if both amps provide an adequate amount of power to drive a particular headphone.
