O2 + ODAC vs Maverick Tube Magic D1 on HD 650's, curious what differences in sound I will hear

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey guys. I recently purchased an O2 for my HD 650s and I was wondering if anyone here has heard both the O2 + ODAC as well as the Tube Magic D1 with these pair of cans. I'm just kinda curious to know what difference in sound I will hear between the two DAC/AMP's.

What kind of differences will you hear? I think you need to try it out for yourself!

Thing is, for most of us, it is difficult if not impossible to listen to different headphone amps before committing to buying one. Where I live (Montreal, QC Canada), there is 1 hifi audio store in the province that I know of, and their selection of amps is quite limited.

 

This is why we have to rely on second hand experience from users in this forum! bigsmile_face.gif

 

If someone else had the chance to try the same model of headphones as we have, but with different amps, he can relate his experience and describe the difference that he heard. It's either that or reading the amp's specs... but that can be daunting, particularly for newbies (like me)...

I agree to an extent.

However, IMO its better to get hold of the measurements, and compare them yourself. Its better than trusting someone else's explanation of 'how it sounds', and you'll get a good approximation of where the sound lies in the whole spectrum of amp sounds.

Of course ;)
