For the complete retards like me? What can I do to improve the sound between my Roxanne and AK120? Should I turn the bass all the way up or down? Is there anything that I can do in between to help (cables, mods)?
From just my listening, it sounds better with the bass at maximum. Very few songs has too bright tremble ...
Thanks in advance
Well I would say try it first. If the bass sounds anemic or weird, then you can either add and amp or get the AK 120 modded to have lower OI. But if it sounds fine don't worry be happy.
That the ak120 does not drive well. And tell me what other dap it works good with
Please educate me please
Driving pertains to power output that affects how loud a headphone sounds. But I think the concern here is AK120 with 3 ohm output impedance shifts the frequency response of low impedance headphone like JH16 (Roxanne included) .
Yes I tried it, compared with DX50. Slap an amp (try the UHA 4 or C5D) with AK120 and you will hear the difference. Whether you like the difference or not is just matter of personal preference. I will definitely not use an AK120 unmodded or unamp with JH16 not because it can't drive the iem/headphone well. But because it does not sound as I expect it to be with JH16.
