    How to use Fiio E7 DAC Only

    Quote:   Oh my. I'm disappointed. This entire time, I thought it had the option as functioning as a DAC only as well, which is why I bought it. I heard of people using it as a DAC for their other amps. :(

    How to use Fiio E7 DAC Only

    When I plug the Fiio E7 into my Mac Pro, it gets recognized as a USB DAC and I can plug my headphones into it, using it as a headphone amp/DAC combo. But how would I use it as a DAC only? Do I have to enable any settings within the unit? I attempted to use this a DAC only, and plug a JDLabs cmoy...

    Best portable amp for HD 598 without coloring of sound for up to $150

    Quote: Thanks. Unfortunately, the Schiit Asgard is out of my price range for the time being. The E7 will suffice for now, and maybe serve as a DAC should I get something else down the line. I had also ordered the L-shaped Fiio LOD cable. How long do I need to burn-in the 598's? How long...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Thank God, a miracle happened. Well not so much a miracle, but the M50's have opened much more since my last complaint. They are making me smile again. The closed feeling is gone for the most part. The sound stage has widened a bit, and instrument separation has improved, and detail is more...

    Best portable amp for HD 598 without coloring of sound for up to $150

    *NOTE: I apologize in advance for re-hashing this topic, but I'm looking for advice to a more specific question.   I just ordered the Sennheiser HD598, and I'm very excited, awaiting its arrival. While I have not actually heard them, my research has led me to believe they are a bit lacking...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Quote: based on my first post, do you think the 598 may fit the bill? You said the bass was better than the AD900. How do you feel about the bass in general on the 598. It's really neck in neck, b/w the DT990, and the HD598. The 990 seems like it maybe a headache with over sparkle, which...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Quote: If I order the 598, i'm going to order an amp as well. I see in your sig, that you got he AD900, and no longer own the 598. I was looking into the AD900 and AD700 awhile back, just to see if they were like the M50 in open back form. What did you not like about the 598, and how does...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Quote:   I'm using the iPhone 4 w/ Apple lossless as my primary, and iPad w/ lossless as my secondary via the headphone jack. I'm really divided with this headphone. There are times when it's fantastic, especially with R&B/POP. I am listening to SEAL (Kiss by a Rose) and it sounds...

    Best (non IEM) headphones for jogging

    I still haven't settled yet on a portable headphone. I just got the audio technical M50 for my home setup, and I am completely satisfied. Is there any kind of jogging headphone that sounds similar? The M50 sounds amazing without an amp from my iPhone 4, which is making me think there could a...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Thanks for the responses. I tested out the DT770, and the M50s, which was pretty much all that guitar center had to offer in the mid-fi, if you will. At first the M50s sounded too congested and muddy with bass from my iPhone directly, but then after a few songs, it just started opening up, and I...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    Thanks for the heads up. The open design is fine, as my son sleeps in a different room. I noticed in your signature that you got rid of dt990, why? Also what's is the advantage of getting it with 300/600 ohms? I wanted to be able to drive them from my iPhone unamped; however, I haven't committed...

    I'm Iooking for a bright, comfortable headphone with good bass/spacious soundstage: Beyer DT990?

    anyone?? I'm heading over to guitar center in a few minutes to try the DT770, and M50, just because that's all they have. I'm itching to just hear some headphones, even though I most likely will not buy them.

    Best (non IEM) headphones for jogging

    Hmmm, maybe the ksc35 will be my best bet. It would probably be in my best interest to buy both and evaluate for myself. :( any other suggestions?

    Best (non IEM) headphones for jogging

    Kalikot,   I am really considering the KSC's, I just don't know which one to get. I like their pricing, and I feel like I could take them jogging, and if they break, that koss lifetime warranty will factor in. But sound is also the main factor. I'm worried the KSC35's will be a tad to muddy...

    Best (non IEM) headphones for jogging

    Dweaver,   Thanks, I considered the MS1's; however, having owned a pair of grado 325is's, they were not comfortable to me, for long periods of time. Also, I don't think I would want to jog with Grados/Alessandros. They are too big, and fragile for that sort of activity, I imagine. Also, I...
