One more thing if your headphones end in a 3.5mm (1/8") tip you will need a 1/8 to 1/4 adapter to use the magni

Thanks!

 

Depending on your source, it means that if you turn it up all the way you'll probably fry your headphones and go deaf.

 

Seriously, that's a lot of power for most cans outside of the HE6.

Well I just tried the Magni for the first time.  I don't know why I had any doubts about it powering my 70ohms.  With everything at full volume on the computer, I can't even turn the volume on the Magni past 9 o'clock without it being too loud.  Extremely powerful amp.  Like it so far!

I use my Magni to drive cans from 32 ohms to 250 ohms, and they all work fine. I can get ear-bleeding volume levels from the Magni, even with the 250 ohm cans. So 70 ohms would be just fine.

I got a Magni to tide me over while troubleshooting a Burson Soloist.  Now that the Soloist is up and running, I think I would have a very difficult time distinguishing between them in a blind or double-blind scenario.

 

Except the Magni is capable of more output level to the He-560's and Alpha Dogs.

 

Very, very impressed, to say the least.

Am using the Magni more nowadays to drive my HE-500 despite having the Mjolnir. I somehow found the MJ to be smoother sounding and didn't sound aggressive enough for some of my metal recordings..
