    *Official Schiit Magni/Modi 2 ( Uber ) Thread*

      Okay, and you use the AC adapter with the Modi 2U, whereas the Modi 1 does not use an AC adapter?

    Quick question, if I use the Modi 2 Uber, is the Wyrd unnecessary?

    *Official Schiit Magni/Modi 2 ( Uber ) Thread*

      Thank you for the reply.  However, I am looking for a sound quality/performance comparison between the ODAC and Modi 2 Uber.   If someone can provide a comparison along those lines, I will be greatly appreciative.   Thanks

    Brief Odac impressions

    If you don't recommend the ODAC, what DAC ($200-300) would you recommend to use with a speaker setup?

    Brief Odac impressions

    Question,   Should I be using a USB cable with a ferrite core to connect my ODAC?  And if so, are the USB cables with ferrite cores from Monoprice fine?  I need a 10ft cable, and I connect my ODAC to my Behringer A500 speaker amplifier.   Thanks,

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    How will this compare to the HD 650?  Which will have a fuller sound with more bass?   Edit:  I would also like to throw the Sony MA900 into this discussion.

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    Lachlan, any updated thoughts on MA900 vs HD 650?  I have owned and enjoyed the MA900 for just over a year and recently decided to search for an upgrade to them.  I ordered the HD 650 about a week ago and will be trying them out for about 3 more weeks to decide if they are worth the ~$415 I paid...

    ++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the Introductions, Help and Advice forum

    Quote:   I can spend ~ $500 if I return the O2 (arrived with deformed case), or ~ $300 if I keep the O2.   I keep coming back to the AD700 because it sounds easy, laid back, and normal.  The Q701 sounds good but it not nearly as peaceful as the AD700.    I have considered the HD...

    Hello,   I have ordered the Q701 twice, used it for a month each time, and returned it each time.  I still prefer my AD700 to the Q701.  I used the Q701 with an O2 amp.  I used the AD700 with good motherboard audio.   What upgrade should I try next?   Thanks

    Schiit Magni Headphone Amplifier

    Is the Magni too powerful for quiet Q701 listening?  I generally listen at about half volume on my iPhone.

    Best Gaming Headset <$75 for Xbox360

    If you can find a pair, I recommend the Orpheus HE 90.  Otherwise, the Stax SR-009 really lets you get the leg up on all the kids using turtle beach headphones.   Perry

    Q701 impressions thread

    Quote:   The Q701 clamps extremely hard - many times harder than audio technica models.  The HD 598 has more clamp than the audio technica models but much less than the Q701.

    Q701 impressions thread

    Does anyone else feel that the Q701 is too small for your head?  My pair is extremely tight and constantly exerts upward force on the bottom of my ears because it doesn't want to stretch enough.  I also have pain around my temples from the ear pads and pain from the headband (both of which I...

    AKG Q701 Quincy Jones Edition is killed?

    The Q701 fails to produce a center image for me; every sound is left or right.  Vocals never feel as if they are right in front of me, resulting in a bizarre sound signature.  The 598 is the exact opposite.  The 598 sounds more like a closed headphone; every sound is middle centered.  The AD700...

    Does anyone know when this line will be available in the US?  I need the safety of a return policy before I order.
