Hello all, I just purchased a pair of DT770's 250 ohm, along with the Schiit Magni amp. Let me say that I also have a pair of DT770 but the 80 ohm version, which I've been using for 4 years along with my X-fi Titanium HD. I will admit that I am fairly unknowledgable when it comes to this stuff, so bear with me as I have a few questions.
Well first off, I noticed that the 250ohm DT770's when hooked up to the Magni doesn't sound much louder than the 80 ohm version just being drived by my Titanium HD. I guess that makes sense since there is already a headphone amp included in the soundcard, but I thought the amp would increase my volume significantly. Plugging the 80 ohm version into the Magni is absolutely insane sounding, which leads me to believe that I wasted my money on the 250 ohm version - it just seems more quiet, and pumping the volume up all the way isn't as loud as I thought it might be. I haven't burned the new headphones in yet so maybe that's why it seems that way, unless I am mistaken (in other words, will my new headphones get louder after I burn them in)?
Also, when it comes to volume control, where should my windows volume be set at in comparison to the Magni volume? Right now I just have windows at 50% and am changing the Magni as needed. I am not sure what is the norm for this.
Any help and feedback would be appreciated!
