I wrote this earlier in the thread to a questions about the t50rp with the X3:
"I was pretty shocked at how well my Fiio X3 drives the t50rp's, but I have no idea what equivalent that would be to their amps. You can really blast yourself away with the high gain setting on that thing. You get better timbre from other more expensive amps but the X3 is no slouch at all power wise."
Oops, I missed that. But does it leak sound? I want to be able to use it in a library, and I normally don't use high volume.
Not a problem it's a long thread! I've been quite shocked by the x3 so far in how good it sounds by itself. I still have my RSA intruder and use that along with the X3 sometimes but the high gain setting on the x3 is pretty beastly in it's own right for the price of the unit. I mostly use the x3 by itself, mostly because I can't adjust the "bass/treble" eq settings on the x3 when using it out of the LOD.
The ZMF's and most t50rp mods are closed unless someone modifies them to open the vents more. There is one small vent in the t50rp and usually part of how people modify the headphone has to do with how much they cover that vent up. Even uncovered sound leakage is very minimal unless your blasting them!
