    Used in Dac mode, the DX220 drains the internal battery. iBasso justifies this with possible damaged source devices which couldn't handle the current in case the USB power would be used. In my opinion it would be possible to handle technically. When the DX220 would be designed in a way that the...

    Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd Gen Amazon.co.uk 499 GBP Not the latest 3rd Generation, but if you don't mind, a good price for the previous generation.

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    That's quite difficult to answer for me and therefore I kept both up to now. I experiment also with reversible different internal dampings and earpads, so the current sound of mine is also slightly different from stock. When both were stock in the past, i preferred the heights of the blue and...

    Has anybody compared the Dekoni Hybrid pads to either the stock ones or the Dekoni Sheepskin pads? I use the Sheepskin pads, but I can hear a less dominant bass which you can also see in the measurements from Dekoni. Fostex TH-900 mk II Measurements According to the graph, the Hybrid pads...

    Looks interesting. Do you have a link to a good braiding tutorial for 8 strands?

    I had this on Windows 10, so it doesn't seem to be OS related. On another day with a different USB cable everthing was fine. But i tested it only this two times as i usually use a different setup at home and doesn't need the DX220 (at home).

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Has anybody tried the Dekoni Hybrid earpads? I'm curious how they sound compared to the stock pads. I changed my pads to the Dekoni Sheepskin pads (standard sheepskin, not the fenestrated), they are made of a really nice material, but i could hear the slight drop of the bass which you can...

    Have you now found the ideal damping amount and position? Some posts ago you weren't complete happy with the damping mod.

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Up to now i only played around with new Dekoni pads, attenuation rings and several kind of dampening materials and amount. It's interesting how such modifications affect the sound and i like to experiment with this. Have the Lawton cups the same size as the stock ones or do they have a...

    I don’t know this specific amp and i never tried to use an additional amplifier, because then you have two amps in a row. From the smsl sp200 amplifier product description i can see there is a gain switch at the front plate. Does this make a difference soundwise when you connect it to the...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    Thanks for your detailed explanations, do i get it right that both options have two volume pots? Or which solution would provide just one volume pot?

    Just for my understanding that i got it right: Headfi does not tolerate when a private person does a mod and likes to charge the expenses for it? This is already categorized as commercial action and is not tolerated? Just wondering and try to understand the principle behind this.

    Well, you could create a new thread in the "introductions-help-and-recommendations" part of the forum. Don't forget to mention your budget and which headphones you want to drive. Your taste of music might also worth to be considered (e.g. classic vs. EDM). When you expect a more or less helpful...
