Hi there,

 

This interests me because I have the Beyedynamics DT 880 (250 Ohm) and

am using them with the JDS Labs O2 & ODAC (as two separates). - I'm extremely happy with all of them.

Are there any interesting comments from the DT 880 & C5 owners?

Has anyone tried this with a LCD-2 yet?

See release articleLCD-2's need at least 500mW for best results. C5 is built for more efficient headphones, and not planars.

 

No portable amp I'm aware of can even run for more than 3 hours when driving that much power. It's too much current for a portable amp. You'd need a massive battery to make it possible. O2 can do it. But again, run time will be unimpressive.

Maybe a Centrance M8 for planars?

Got my C5 today, and it's amazing!

 

I really love the bass boost. I probably wouldn't have it on all the time i don't think, but for drum n bass and trance/edm it's a great option to have (seeing as thats mainly what i listen to!).

I'm also using 'equalizer' on the ipod touch for eq as it supports gapless playback. i'm using the er4s with a sub bass boost similar to the one described by Luisdent. That sub bass boost, with the added bass boost on the c5 is pretty intense!

 

Mainly just wanted to say thank you to Luisdent for your help with this set up, i'm really enjoying it!-Just need to get some red filters...... biggrin.gif

I just received my C5 today after purchasing from my local Noisy Motel store. Received this thing within 48 hours, so very pleased to try this C5 after deciding to buy it!

 

I shall have a novice review for it soon:)

Finished my review on the C5! :)

More or less, my first review lol so it'll probably not be as good as it should be.

 

All I can say is, I tried.

Great write up mate! Your description is spot-on to what I've experience with the C5.

I didn't have that lack of layering tho... probably because I'm using the H200 as my main IEM for the setup.

Haha, thanks again!

Yeah, I, too, have the H-200's, just have yet to try it with the C5 as I am enjoying the M-100's too much:)

Will let you know what I think of the H-200's and the instrumental separation when I use them.

Please do...

All I can say is I've never enjoyed music this much since I got the H200 + C5 + iPod Touch 5th gen combo.

Of course.

It is a great feeling when you find a rig that does so much goodness!
