These rigs look AMAZING, just cant belive how much money you put to your music rigs its admiring. I have been actually making some investmenst as well to my portable rig (wich is sennheiser IE60 and iPod classic 80gb). Ordered a pair of HD25 I-II from an uk maker who customizes them to your liking, the mock up looks AMAZING! also im getting fostex hp-p1 to go with those headphones. Those things should arrive at the end of february.

I'll go out on a limb here and say it actually sounds better than my Clip+ and 5.5g iPod Video, and it does a surprisingly good job of driving my HD580s. Not without its limitations though. It will skip if you even think about moving it, there's a little static in the volume pot (fixed by working it back and forth a few times), it burns through batteries like there's no tomorrow, and then there's the issue of having to carry CDs around. But it does sound good, especially with the ruthlessly revealing MDR-7506.

The amp is called Vorzuge Pure amp. It's from Germany.

It's fantstically built and sounds extrememly powerful for its size.

I have been wondering about that. I mainly wanted an amp for gaming purposes to pair with the HFi580s I'm getting to better control volume.
With an iPhone 4 and those phones do you think an amp would improve music enough to be worth it for taking with me every day to campus?

Ill post pics of my rig as soon as I get enough posts as I'm new! wink.gif

Custom Cans by any chance (there can't be that many DJ-'phone obsessed customisers in the UK)? If so, I believe jfunk (the owner) is a member on here.

 

I used his (mass-loading) mods on my own HD-25's.

I never owned these headphones and I am not an expert. Whatever people tell you, the only real informed decision you can make is by trying the amp. I have bought really expensive amps and thought their sound was great, but not necessarily what I was looking for / not necessarily matching my IEMs.

 

Then it depends if it is for on-the-go or more just a transportable rig. For on-the-go, attaching an amp is in my opinion never convenient, even more so to a phone !

 

If it is to take to campus and listen there, an amp can improve the way the iphone drives your HF, then you should ask people which one as I am not an apple user. I think all in one players are better. I use a DX100.

 

On DAC/AMP that I tried and is really nice and VERY portable is the Apex Glacier from TTVJ. Check out the dedicated thread for more information.
