You think I may have overshot with the little DA 75wpc amp I ordered?
On another note, got them in today. Packaging was really, really damn nice. I love the new cable Fang is shipping with them. About 5 feet, silver, no sleeving at all. Trying to power them out of my EF2A is a joke. I mean, I can only turn it up to about 10 o'clock before it gets too loud to deal with, but clipping is painfully evident and bass presence is...well, mostly not. That said, mids are smooth, lovely, and there's enough top-end sparkle to make me smile. Piano is just beautiful.
They're extremely comfortable. Dunno what the fuss is about--anyone who thinks these things are uncomfortable have clearly never tried to work a 12 hour shift in PRO900s.
I'll let you guys know how it goes when I get the DA in. Should be just another day or two. I've got banana plugs on the way, too...I'll have one of our electronics techs here solder them onto the stock cable for me. Cuz, you know, I'm cheap, and I don't have any intention of ever powering these out of a headphone amp.
I feel the pain too... After wearing the Pro 900 for a while they can get very uncomfotable. I will also be upgrading to the HIFIman, but to the Mini-X/HE-5LE
I will post impressions too when I get them, but that will take some time.
Looking forward to your impressions!
