I could spend the same amount of money on "end game" stuff, but there wouldn't be much variety or room for creativity in making rigs each day.

One day I'll get my multi armature custom with TOTL amp, dac and cables, but if it doesn't happen I'm perfectly content picking up the latest offerings from budget manufacturers.

I still love using my old HD400's.

They're like a really good mature wine, And they just keep sounding better.

First time Ive tried them on a tube amp, It worked pretty nicely creating a warm airy sound.

Wind instruments sound amazing!!

The only downside is these cans NEED offensive amounts of power to drive them properly, The B-1 just manages to.

 

Rockbox'd iPod 5.5g Video.

iBasso LOD.

Little Bear B-1 Tube Amp.

Sennheiser HD400. ( 600ohm Beasties )

Your ipod video deserves at least a 1TB msata and a 2000mAH battery, if not a capless bypass surgery.

There is a mod thread with abundant info if you are interested. RWA iMod is just one of the ways for bypass, and to my ears not the cleanest one.

 

As for the SQ, my conclusion with any setup, capless lineout to capless amp and a pair of dynamic-driven iem's will pretty much kill your fever for good. If not, then you are truly an audiophile. :)

 

That said, I am often sucked into music and forget about SQ, even when I make spin moves with my earbuds on.
