    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I have been using the high gain setting.  If I use the low setting, will the quality of music go down similar to if I just plug the speakers into an ipod?

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Does it make sense that the Magni 2 Uber would only need the volume turned up slightly to power the 650's well?  Starting at 7 O'clcok (all the way down) and turning it up very slowly, you hear the right speaker turn on right away, quietly, and then the left speaker comes on well before you get...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Yes, thanks for the suggestions, though!  Switching to FooBar didn't help.  Different drivers?  The modi auto-DLs it's own driver, as far as I know.

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Interesting.  Obviously, that fits my problem as well since I just got the new laptop.  I switched form GOM to FOOBAR audio player, and this had no effect on the "Jitter" - we'll call it.   Please let us know what you discover moving forward and I'll of course be doing the same.  I have a 90-day...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Hi.  :-)    Yes, it clips/pops every 20 seconds or so for me.  What did you do to fix that problem for yourself?  Did you just replace the Nuforce Dac with something else?   As for the Wyrd product from Schiit, I'm not giving them a dime if this is really the modi's fault.  lol.  But I have...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Thanks for the advice, perhaps it is Jitter, and this is how I'll refer to it until I fix the problem. I unpluged everything, even my Usb wireless mouse, and the problem persists. Through three songs of the Ziltoid 2:  Dark Matters 320 mp3's, I got a few tiny jitters and also two LONG ones...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

      Just to be clear:  You've got the Music Hall 25.3 hooked up to your macbook Pro and it works without "Jitter" - yes?  I'm unfamiliar with this but I assume it's a DAC/amp combo.  This is some evidence that it is indeed the Modi, no?

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    I just checked and it was set to 44/16 "cd quality" - the minimum.  I will experiment with other settings.  Listening to 96/24 right now.  Though it sounds like you think having it set LOW would be best, huh?

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    I did blow out the ports with an air-can and switch the usb port to no avail.  It's the same cable I was using with the old PC which worked ok, so maybe that's not likely.  Good idea on writing Schiit, I will do that now as Devin Townsend's "Epiccloud" mp3's are being ruined as we speak.  I...

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Hmm....I guess I mean "clicking?"  Its like there is a sudden 1/10th of a second of silence or "cutting out" of the song.

    Help! Schitty CLIPPING from the Modi, or.....?

    Holy Schiit.  Am I ever a Sad Panda.  Obviously I'm hearing clipping in my music, and after doing a little research here, I haven't found a place to start.  I'm using a new, original Modi with a Magni 2U and a new laptop.  As I just got the Modi and the laptop, I had only a couple chances to...

    HD650 Bass Light?

    I do not know if the bass was up on the home amp, but I use the EQ on "rock" or "classical" setting on itunes.  That info on woo3 vs O2 is interesting/useful, though.  :-)

    DarkVoice 336e vs. Little Bear P8 - Near identical Chinese amps?

    Cool.  I'm actually not too interested in tube rolling.  I'm hoping to plug the 650's into the DV336e (which is what it'll be, if it's the warm sound people say) and start enjoying it without any wanting, we shall see.  :-P  How much better is your La Figaro than the 336e?  Is it a situation...

    DarkVoice 336e vs. Little Bear P8 - Near identical Chinese amps?

    @sgbwill2 - Thanks for those pics and your info.  I didn't know the La figaro 339 existed so I looked it up.  Damn, $660 - out of my range!  I guess you must feel it's worth it.  Maybe I should try to find a strong amp used, it's tough though b/c they are still expensive and it seems worth it to...

    DarkVoice 336e vs. Little Bear P8 - Near identical Chinese amps?

    @kramer5150 - Whoa, man.  You are so far "Headphonus Supremus" beyond me it's not even funny!  While I don't know much about the internal workings of amps, I did notice that red tape you mentioned and the jacks right by the main AC, it's like....What?  Weird.  Thanks for that info on how NOT to...

    DarkVoice 336e vs. Little Bear P8 - Near identical Chinese amps?

    Minus the exrta small tube on the Little Bear, are these amps super-close in quality? I've heard reviews of DarkVoice, but not litlte Bear p8, so if anyone has heard that one, I'd love to hear your thoughts.  Here are some links to the two for sale, Mass Drop not active yet for DarkVoice, but...

    Darkvoice 336se vs Darkvoice 3322

    So how many mW's does the 336e give to a 300Ohm headphone?  I'm new at this, but isn't that important information?  I see it has power output of 1W.  Doesn't that seem like nothing for say an HD650?  I'm using a Magni 2U right now that is 1.5W, it's cheap.  The Magni puts out 320mW @300Ohm and I...

    HD650 Bass Light?

      Thanks for the link.  I just scanned over it and it looks somewhat helpful.  I did download the spreadsheet they provide, very cool.  While you said the 650's can easily be touched by the Magni 2U, will they have significantly improved BASS with either a stronger amp or simply a tube amp?  ...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      Quote:   Ah-ha!  Just what I've been looking for, some info on the "old" HD650 of many years past to the "new" HD650.  Can anyone give some info on this por favor?  My friend got his a milliion years ago and they look more silvery than mine, which are a dark gunmetal.  His also seem to...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

     Right away I'm looking at:   Magni 2 $99 and provides 260mw at 300Ohm Magni 2 Uber $149 and provides 320mw @ 300Ohm.     Looks like the main difference is that Uber has "Pre amp outputs" - what are those?  LOL.  Is that Uber version going to provide noticeably more fun, warm, lively sound...

    M-Audio Q40 Impressions (long w/pics)

    Thanks so much to everyone who offered advice/support for my switch to the beyers pads.  I just finished putting the Silver pads on my Q40s and couldn't be more pleased!  At first I thought there was no way in hell I was gonna be able to get the new pads on, but after struggling through the...
