It's more about dynamic range. If you don't provide the headphone with enough clean power, bass and other parts of the audio can suffer, regardless of how loud it can seemingly get. My work iphone provides plenty of power, but my Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 headphone jacks do not, especially when I have Viper4Android audio software running. Running through a decent DAC, and a small amp gives the best results for me on those.

 

Been A/B ing the EFI82-MT and 489, and I like them both. The EFI is the better value right now though, as it can be found for ~$35.

Hey Bhazard, I saw in the Takstar thread you also own the Pro 80. How does that ones sound compare to the MH489 ?

 

And I found a EFI82 MT on Aliexpress with cool red pads, Only 25 euro, that as cheap as a Superlux.

I like the Pro 80 a lot. It has a dip and peak in the treble that needs EQ, but once EQ'ed it sounds phenomenal.
