NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!! - Page 200

post #2986 of 4963

So after my short experience with my DT880/600 I was struck with a phantom hair causing a rattle which I could not find despite driver disassembly. So needless to say I have sent them back to the retailer. Anyway, on topic, before I go just getting a new DT880 are there any other cans in the same general price range which pair well with the vali?

If your budget allows I would strongly recommend the HE-400, if you want I may have a coupon from razordogaudio for them

I'll look into them. Thanks for the coupon offer but it would have to be something I can purchase on amazon, as that is where I purchased the DT880 (Amazon giftcards were popular this past Christmas).

Btw, is the ringing of the vali really that bad? Like not worth getting and get the o2 over it? Or is it just wait 5 mins or so to warm up and it's good to go without any type of ringing?

In my experience it's really not that bad at all. A bit high pitched immediately after turning it on or plugging something in, but in mine at least, it subsides within 20-30 seconds, even less in the case of just turning it on as there is a muting relay that is activated for the first 20 seconds from turning it on. For reference my vali is revision B #273.

While the HE-400 looks really good, it is just a bit outside my price range at this point in time. Another factor to consider is that however much I would love to have an open headphone, the room I do the majority of my listening to is shared with another person so sound leakage becomes a problem.

Sound leakage on the He300 is minimal unless you are Cranking it where your ears bleed. the He500 on the other hand is really loud. I have heard both.

Are HE-300 open or closed? Can't seem to find if they are or not. Part of the reason I got the DT880 in the first place was because of the semi-open design, as sound leakage wasn't terrible. As it is I'm still exploring my options even though another DT880 is most certainly not off the table.

Schiit should add in an NFC bluetooth compatibility. That way, I can tap the Vali with my headphones like all the time.

They are open. But i would consider them more semi open. the sound leakage from them is about the same as the DT880. Sound wise the DT880 trounces the HE300, But the HE300 does sound very fun and will get your head moving pretty easily
