Yes, they're more expensive but they probably won't blow up in your DX90, turning your DAP into a $419 paperweight. Also, I'm fairly certain that a 2100mah Anker battery will last longer than a $3 "2900 mah" battery.

 

You are definitely right. My HTC Vivid has one of these type of cheapo batteries and it use to last for up to 30 hours. Then less than 4 months later, the battery went down to 10 hours, maybe up to 12 hours. Go for a recognized brand and you won't go wrong.

I was thinking of upgrading from AK100 to AK120. But if this is better in SQ then grab it for a 1/4 price.

Aerosmith and the lcd-3 was amazing because of all the energy and the bass(i was listening to walk this way)

I think AK240s got plenty of energy but I'm not sure if it's got the best subtlety,

Oh, and I though LCD3 sounded similar to 650 but better in some ways ( I still love 650 more<3)

Thanks, I have a pair of HD600 and love them to death but am hesitant to buy at the next level because that model to me already sounds so sweet. I was thinking about the HD800 however its size seems to a bit too large. I did hear great things about its performance. I am looking at open headphones because I just love the natural sound it creates. Isolation is not an issue for me. Now with the DX90, I feel I should get a better headphone in order to truly experience the better sq. My only hesitation is obviously price. frown.gif

Btw, FYI guys I talked to DHL and they said I can just leave a note on my door if I don't have anyone to sign for it.

Thanks Soren, how about the HE560, they say it's comparable to the Oppo PM-1 which is one I was considering, PM-2 maybe because it's cheaper?

Sorry guys I'll go back to the DX90 once I get a tip. wink.gif

uhhh, I don't know if you should do that though. I wouldn't plug anything like the HD600 into a portable player, let alone a portable amp.

I say go for the 560 or upcoming 400i. I'll be going for one of those too. :D

Uh.. a status update from DHL. My DX90 has arrived in the country and stuck in customs, a mere 500km away. It's getting closer.

You've never tried the DX100 have you? Or the PB2?

Or a RSA SR71-B

Or the Rx Mk IIIb.

 

In other words, there are plenty portable amps out there that are more than capable of properly driving the HD600, HD650, HE-500 and even the mighty Beyer T1.

 

None of those cans are particularly suited for a ride on the bus, but for chilling in the garden or on the couch, I really do love my (trans)portable rig. 

post #3045 of 8258
Indeed. I probably use my DX50 with SR71-B with all my phones more than I do my big home rig
