Perhaps it has to do with the music files you're listening to, or some settings in your operating system? As for gain, I'd let my ears be the judge, although the K812 has low impedance so I wouldn't expect it to need high gain.
Maybe? I'm not sure. Like I said I only listen to Google Play music and for the most part, it sounds pretty good (I hear way more details than I ever have before with headphones, like the artists saliva and tongue in their mouth between words!). If I listen hard I can hear some artifacting from either the .mp3 quality (320 kbps) or mastering issues. Just tiny bits of distortion on some of the higher frequencies from what it seems. I haven't tried it in a game yet which I'm sure has higher quality audio (Titanfall's audio was insanely dense). But for the $300 I paid, I'm not impressed and feel like maybe I should just stick with my soundcard. Maybe my ears just aren't that sensitive, maybe it's the tinnitus I have, or maybe the sound card is doing a great job despite everything working against it.
