I want to buy this model but haven't listened yet.
I own Ipod touch 4g and Brainwawz M2, but sound is very deep.(I dont know how to describe it). Meanwhile, Senheiser IE 4 sounds better: cleaner and closer.
Please answer some questions:
1) Someone says that F806 can't unlock the potential of XBA-3 (I'm not an audiophile, so I don't find little and not obvious sound problems. Therefore, I decided to buy XBA-3, cuz it's good balanced headphones). Is it true?
Shall I buy amp?
2) I listened NWZ-A866 with my M2. They played so lively as ever.
Could I get the same feelings with F806 and XBA-3? If not, what player and headphones you could recommend for casual listener?
I think the XBA-3 will sound fine with the F806; however, I find the XBA-3 to be more difficult to drive than my Shure as well as my JH13pro. I have to crank up the volume up more on the Sony. Still, the combo gives very decent musical performance.
