My X1 is up for sale here if anyone is interested.
I'd like to upgrade the cable on my X1's - the V-Moda Audio Only cable that appears to be the standard replacement for the X1 is too short for my needs. Can anyone recommend another high quality-for-the-buck cable in the 8-10 ft. range? Budget is $50 max. Prefer 1/8in / 3.5mm plug.
Well I did some reading in the Mad Lust Envy gaming thread and decided to order the Mediabridge cable from Amazon. I preferred the looks/specs of the Fisio S-Flex cables (on Amazon UK), but it didn't look like shipment to the US was possible.
A couple of 1/8" TRS connectors and any length you want of Mogami cable such as Mini Quad 2893.
I really don't know where the myth of these cans not needing amplification came from. I am typing from an ASUS G73SW with realtek audio and it turns into a distorted mess at higher volumes, and the base volume is very average. Even my gf's 4yo Macbook Pro was better for this. And from my Ipod Touch 4 they also don't reach very high volume.
I feel like an idiot for believing what I was told just like that.
I suspect the same applies to the ipod touch then? Because I also mentioned that.
If neither of these things fall into the range of things that supposedly are sufficient to amp something that I was told 'needs no amplification to shine' then I consider myself misinformed.
My re-400's sound a lot better off these. Fortunately I have an Aune t1 under way.
I really want to like these cans. But they keep failing no matter what I throw at them. If the Aune T1 doesn't do it, I'll sell them and keep my Senns HD600 for the new amp.
