Just one point to look out for, though: I am currently using a cheapish SPC cable from Hong Kong with my HD25s, and it keeps falling out of the groove in the headband. This has no effect on the sound, but is very annoying when travelling. Any replacement cable should have approximately the same diameter as the original steel cable, and fit into the groove tightly enough to stay there when the headband is folded up and opened out again.

Once he's made a cable and I have one I for one will post my opinions, Though I have to say I have a hunch it will be awesome! :)

About time the HD25 had a decent PORTABLE recable solution! 

So far all Ive found has been too bulky for portable use. I believe Frank will make something far better suited to the task.

I am very happy with them. They need a good amp/dac combo to get the best from them. Straight out of the iPhone they are average, but give them some good source and amp and wow! They rival my CSP2+/HD650 combo for great sound. I used them with the CSP2+ but they seem to favor SS over tube amping.

Did you find much difference? I thought it might have been slightly clearer (and with 24/192 support), but not enough to justify carrying a thick optical cable around.

The Macbook is an old C2D with the noisy headphone jack (Computer Noise) and it will only do 24/96 on the optical anyway.

I've a thin optical cable coming in so it might be feasible to carry, but I'll probably just stick with the USB.

Current version of my transportable rig for lunchtime listening at work:

 

Samsung Galaxy Note II --> USB audio --> micro USB host to mini USB cable --> Ray Samuels Intruder --> Moon Audio Silver Dragon balanced RSA to 4-pin XLR adapter --> balanced removable cables --> Jaben-modded Beyerdynamic T5p.

 

The Intruder is attached to a slim phone case with the low-profile clear 3M dual lock tape, very securely held. The low-profile dual lock tape is nice for this, plenty enough grip but less space between the affixed devices compared to the regular dual lock tape. The case is only used for this purpose, so everything stays connected and the case simply snaps onto the phone, plug in the USB cable and its good to go. Everything bar the phone fits into a hardshell carry case for the headphones, similar to the HiFiMan one (in fact I think the case IS actually the HiFiMan one, they are being sold through Ebay with the badge removed, and it is identical to the case my HE-6 lives in). Speaking of the HE-6, using a balanced connection this rig does a fair job of driving them too, which is no mean feat.

Is the intruder running true balanced? I.e. if the dac is balanced or not

Da beast mate, Da beast!!



Hifiman HM-601 + C&C BH Portable Amp + T-Peos H-100 Hybrid.

I am very happy with this set up and it will be my last for a while. it provides exceptional SQ for my standards. Amping the 601 has made such a difference!

Reading this thread make me realize that everyone have their own definition of portable. My definition of portable rig is, small and tiny DAP and an IEM (and without pricey things, because I'm a careless person) and a lot of people here take full sized cans on-the-go, it's just amaze me. So much dedication to get good sounds on the go smily_headphones1.gif
