I found this dt1350 review, that lead me to this m100 review, which led me to this quote from @Asr:

 

 

Which has led to me being interested in the ES7's!

 

Haha...buy it and let us know what you think of it.  I used to own a ESW9 and I didn't like the highs on that model.

 

If you keep this up you can create your own portable headphone review thread (and give MacedonianHero and Joker a little competition).

Thanks, but not a chance - I'm driving myself insane enough as it is!

 

Btw, why can't the damned 1350's be more comfy! Grrrrr!

Tormented soul... I'm getting that feeling lol. 

 

I've listened to the 440's a few times. They're ok?  Are you saying that they sound like the es7's? If so, I can move right along!

Hey, I got lots of stuff when they were newish! Look at those cutting edge birds i got (that are already being overshadowed dammit!). I guess at the moment, at least as headphones are concerned, I'm in a "retro and oldie but goodie and proven" frame of mind....

As I get to know these headphones more and more, I begin to understand both their strengths as well as weaknesses. Going down that hole has never made more sense... seems almost unavoidable. I'll do myself a favor and give them the prescribed 200 hours first though :)

First time I put on the mikros in reverse, isolation was superb...
But after an hour I realised both ears were numbbbbed:-)

What hole? :-)

So general consesus indicates that the Hifimediy Sabre USB DAC and C&C BH amp work well with the Mikros, but would they be powerful enough to use on other headphones such as the RE-400 and Grado SR225is?
(This is basically the last thing I'm trying to work out before making my decision.)

 

Edit: Forgot to add, would the AudioQuest Dragonfly USB DAC be a better option as a DAC?

Grado225 easily powered
post #5261 of 6488

Thank you :) What about the RE-400s? I've heard they require more amping so I'm not sure if C&C BHs will be enough.

post #5262 of 6488
Venturing a guess....YES?!!! :-)
{Any portable amp worth the pennies will burst an iem...yes!? :-)
post #5263 of 6488

Oh my gosh I'm so sorry I got mixed up, when I said RE-400 I meant HE-400 sorry about that!

post #5264 of 6488
I guessed as much....my guess remains:-):-):-)
post #5265 of 6488

They say they can be powered by an iPod, so they should be powered by a portable amp as well. However you probably don't even come close to their full potential but that just means moar money to throw away in the future! :D

 

Just remember one thing: with this hobby nothing is enough!
