    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    @icedfirefly I'm not a pro on this, but I believe that you reverse the phase when you reverse the connection. And I believe that the HD6__ pins are NOT exactly equal, one being a little bigger in diameter, in each side. With the original cable it's easy as it is marked.

    Koss KPH40 Utility Review/Impressions

    For the price, I see them (kind of) disposable... That said I would love to find someone who could fix the several pairs that I keep in a box. Or better yet, Koss could come up with a longer lasting version(s)...

    I hate you all! :beerchug: I was in the very logical and pratical process of downsizing my systems... a few weeks later, ended up with one more head-amp and not selling one or two DAC and two or three HP... My desktop system as of today: Raspberry Pi 4 with Volumio or Mi Box TV, feeding...

    Major advantage for the 40: metal band that will not snap as the 30 will... ask me how I know...:rolling_eyes:

    Yes, I stand corrected 🙂 It's the OTL ones. And yes, the TA-20 is a hybrid and on paper seems to be able to drive the phones.

    Don't ask me for technical details, but tube amps and planar headphones are normally not a good match.

    If your kind offer is still available, I would like to "apply". My Mojo is currently stationary on my desk, due to the battery giving little more than half hour. I'm in Portugal, but my son lives in London. 🙂

    iFi audio iPower X - The Official Thread

    Your question wasn't for me, but I'll answer too. I have: iPower X 12V for the Cambridge DacMagic 200M - as a DAC to external amp: blacker blacks, more spark in the top (in a good way). As a headphone amp, all the previous plus more attack and decay on the notes, and more natural presence...

    Mine has some "scratch" noises when moving the volume pot between zero and one o'clock positions. If I rotate it repeteadly it goes away... just to be back next time I turn it on. Other than that, I love it.

    Favorite streaming platform for highest quality sound?

    You can use Soundiiz to move your libraries. The free tier has some limitations, but you can pay only one month and do it in a matter of minutes, and then cancela the subscription. They cover a lot of streaming services. I used it to go from tidal to qobuz and all went well.
