    Schiit Magni Headphone Amplifier

    Just got a magni on the cheap, it's okay a tad splashy in the treble perhaps ? I can see this would be a great amp for headphones that need more treble though.   Prefer the old fiio E6 sound on my fidelio x1's not tried the hd 650's on it yet but will do.   Happy for the cheapo price i paid...

    For me the 650 sound very similar to the x1 just not as full bodied as obviously they need an OTL amp.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    buying these 650 was a mistake by me whats the point if they only sound good on a only works well on 600ohm +£400 bottlehead or £500 + solid state amp may as well just change the 650 and get more expensive cans I have tried now the 650's on a few solid state amps and they sound thin and lacking...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    The X1 complaints of having recessed midrange and treble were just wrong imo, the midrange detail and treble is fully there it's just "rolled off" yes the midrange is ever ever so slightly "rolled off" I'd say like the sennheiser hd650 but the 650's just roll off the treble. The X1 sound very...

    Saving up for a tube amp at least little dot mkIII for my hd650 before reserving judgement They do need high voltage right ? will always sound a bit thin on mid to low end solid states ?   No matter what people say they need a voltage only tube amps can supply ?

    Noob question about headphone amps with built in dacs.

    I figured it out in simple terms at last   Any external dac will override a soundcard dac no matter what, the soundcard is just sending the signal

    Schiit Modi and Magni comparison to Bifrost and Asgard

    I've read that even an stx soundcard blows the stack out of the water it's definitely overrated for the £200 it costs.

    Source Volume Vs. Amp Volume

    Low volume on pc/soundcard and adjust headphone amp is the way to go.   No idea why people go around saying put pc volume at 100% and adjust amp, they are just wrong.   You will get distortion and clipping the higher you go.
