I unfortunately couldn't tell ya as I use these at my home exclusively, thus don't ever have any need for transporting them.

 

Perhaps someone who does transport them in a case can chime in here and help you out.

I am thinking about buying these headphones off of amazon japan and I wanted to know if anyone here uses a portable amp with them? I know they aren't portable due to the open the design, I just meant for walking around the house in. My understanding is that these are a great all rounder which is exactly what I am looking for.

I use the Fiio E10K (not exactly a conventional portable amp, more a portable USB powered Amp/DAC) sometimes with the MA900 and they sell great. I actually just use it straight out of my Macbook Air most of the time as they sound great unamped, but a portable amp definitely wouldn't hurt if you already have one around. I wouldn't go out of my way to get a portable amp JUST for the MA900 though.

The E10K can be used with just an ipod right? Do you use the bass boost with the MA900?

I've never tried to use it with the ipod, and I don't think that's possible as this is designed to be used with computers only (you need to have it powered through its usb somehow), but I've heard of people use Fulla with iphones so maybe its possible with this too... Couldn't tell you for myself though.

I also nearly never use the bass boost with the E10K and don't think its necessary at all with MA900, but the bass boost switch is subtle and well done IMO.

I pulled the trigger. I ordered through Amazon but it is being imported. Headphones were $189 + $24 for express air mail. I expect to get them this Friday. I hope I don't have to return them.

Why do you even think you're going to return them? For defect?

I really don't think you will like them, but if you do, congratulations.

 

They don't have the best extension and resolution but i really like them

I was disappointed in the detail of mine at first, but then I realized how important ear placement is on them.  

 

There's still something about the sound that is strange to me, but I haven't figured out what it is.  Maybe it's the truly open back part having an effect.  Or maybe I need more depth in the soundstage.  (It's plenty wide.)  

 

They're very good overall, there's just something different about the sound I can't describe yet.
