Is the only way to shuffle all music tracks to create a playlist and play it??

Adding a 33ohm impedance adapter is not solving the issue as well. Seems like it's not purely an impedance matching issue as my TDK BA200 at 35ohm is also suffering,to a lesser extend. Seems like the M-jack might be the only solution to all this.  

 

Did you buy your M in the U.S.? If yes, then contact Chris Zainea (chriszainea<at>gmail<dot>com).

I don't know if it's the new FW or something else, but it seems that battery life of my M ( 4 months old) is became much shorter. Like 2.5 hours FLAC files.

I don't like it at all. I am going to test it one more time and if it's true, I will contact the seller.

Thanks guys, will do.

So I demo'd a set of hd800's today, as I am considering getting some full sized cans. Demo'd them with an Oppo amp (about $1800). I liked them. Then just before leaving I plugged them directly into the M thinking that the outcome would be terrible. But they actually sounded great direct from the M with the high impedance setting. WTF, am I crazy?

Because HD800's impedance is over 300 ohms and it is a single driver unit, it is not a very difficult load for an amp if voltage swing is sufficient. M's output voltage swing (1.2V) can be insufficient to drive high impedance cans if they are inefficient. But if you can get a sufficient volume, I think you get a good chance to have a good result.

Thanks for the clear and concise explanation. I am pretty sure I had solid volume out of the HD800's with the volume slider at about half way.

The M-Jack is available in Germany via audionext.de
