    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys....Especially James-UK. Even though it is indeed a first world problem, I feel like the cables are just not flexible. I'll give em a good soak in some Nivea and report back.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I just got the HD650's and I absolutely hate the cable. It is too long and very stiff. Also, the 1/4" plug means that I have to use the adapter for pretty much everything I have. Any recommendations for a decent replacement cable that doesnt cost as much as the headphones themselves? Thanks in...

    Portable amp and/or dac for DT 770

    I recently tried the same combo and felt that the DT770s needed more power. I ended up selling the E17. I bought lekerton uha-6s mk.II and there still isnt enough headroom. The 250ohm is alot to drive. Looks like i may do some more amp shopping...

    New Leckerton uha-6s mkii has arrived....Not loud enough!?!?!

    Quote: Wow..The Pioneer's impedance is 36 ohms and that makes all the difference in the world with the Leckerton. Now, with the gain off, I can crank the volume to max and they are quite loud. If I use the gain switch, I can only turn the volume up to 55% or so. The Leckerton really does...

    Little brother absolutely wants beats for Christmas. Refuses Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, PSB, Focal and V-Moda

    To the OP, how about an update? How did your brother like his gift???

    New Leckerton uha-6s mkii has arrived....Not loud enough!?!?!

    Im thinking of ordering the Shure SRH940's to see how the Leckerton does with a lower impedance. I would just like some more headroom as well. Even with the 18db Gain boost on, I max out my DT770 Pro's easily.

    What is the best USB powered Amp/DAC available?

    So Ive been doing some reading and I really like the reviews of the Practical Devices XM6. How does it compare to the JDS Labs O2+ODAC?

    What is the best USB powered Amp/DAC available?

    I'm looking to upgrade from the Fiio E17 but there are a lot of options. My budget is $400 max. Is there a definitive go to? Not quite reference quality but in that realm. My one requirement is that I want it to be USB powered. I like the portability of the E17. It's makes listening on my laptop...

    Fiio E17 + BeyerDynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohms = Great. Would adding the Fiio E09 Headphone Amplifier make my setup better?

    xStreame, with 32ohm drivers, Im not sure the E09k will make a big difference for you. The E17 should drive your phones adequately.

    Fiio E17 + BeyerDynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohms = Great. Would adding the Fiio E09 Headphone Amplifier make my setup better?

    Cool. I'll run the Gain at 12db and see what my ears think. After looking some more at the E09k, I'm not sure I want to be tethered to an AC outlet. I like the USB powering a lot.

    Thanks Agent XXL for the input. What Gain settings are you using on the E17? Sounds like the E09k may be hit or miss. I agree with it being dependent on the music. Some music just needs more volume then the E17 provides.

    Good over ear headphones for the e17

    I just bought a pair of BeyerDynamic DT770 Pros 250 Ohms to use with my E17. Great combo. A little weak on volume but I think that has to do with the 250 ohms of the DT770s. Sound quality is great though and the overall volume is definitely usable. It just doesnt get to that unbearable level...

    Beyerdynamic DT 770/80 vs Custom One Pro's Quick Comparison

    I just got a set of DT770 Pros 250 Ohms and they are incredible. I pair them with a Fiio E17 thru my laptop. Great listening experience for under $300.00 total. I may purchase the Fiio E09 Amplifier to increase the headroom a bit on the E17. Gotta really crank it to get some volume out of the...
