I notice alot of people are saying the X3 is loud enough where they don't need High Gains settings, but I seem to be getting different experience.
When using FLAC files, especially 24bit files, I am finding the volume just not loud enough. Max is 120 and I wish there was another 10-15% boost. Using CD Rips (16bit 44.1) its just enough at max volume. Using high gain though really adds a noticeable hiss/background noise.
This is also on cheapy Samsung S3 (35 ohm) OEM headphones. I'm hoping the Ostry KC06 (16 ohm) will allow me that extra bump in volume that I'm looking for. They are on the way.
