The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread - Page 231

post #3451 of 3454

I found out exactly how to get the K712 to my liking. I feel they are normally lacking a little bit in the dynamic range at my listening levels so I put the amp on low gain, turned the volume up to 4 'o clock as some reason the dynamics really kick in at that point on low gain on my Lyr 2, especially the bass. Then I turn my dacs volume down to around 60% which causes the listening to be around 70-75 db average depending on the song with a greater dynamic range. Basically keep the amps volume high while toning down the source/dac volume, it will keep those dynamics kicking without being too loud.

It goes to show that these headphones require lots of current just like what I discovered too. I also have my Meridian explorer volume output 80/100 but the volume mixer is only around 6! It gives full range sound without the need for excessive volume like yours :)

Whats a good, cheap pairing for this headphone? Will the magni/modi stack do the job?

IMO, the FiiO E07K/E09K combo is good for it but I am not sure how it compares to Schiit's M&M stack smily_headphones1.gif
