    you will need to buy some kind of amp, as the Modi multibit (or any Schiit DAC for that matter) can't directly power headphones.

    From what I've been reading, the Modi Multibit is a serious piece of kit that not many other DACs can touch for under $500+ If you are willing to get one, then I'd say go for it.  I'm looking into Integrated myself, as I'd like my unit to power my headphones and speakers.

    I have been thinking of picking up a Schiit Bifrost for a laptop based system since I already have a Meier Audio JAZZ-ff headphone amp that is used with my SACD player. Digital files are much more convenient compared to CD's, and with no loss in quality. Everything I've been listening to with the Purplehearts with has been FLAC files off from my tablet output via DFR USB DAC/amp.

    Thats properbly more layer of coats on the W3000ANV.

    Nice amp. I would choose the Modi Multibit over any iteration of the Bifrost currently available. Schiit is going to announce something big this month, so even better, perhaps just be patient to see what it is.

    Ok, try this out... makes your ears jiggle!
  7. Change is Good
    Perfect match

  8. Change is Good

    Nice any sound improvement? Im deciding to put more coats on it to a weigth level of PH or Ebony.

    My PH are in perfect condition, no imperfections that I can see.

    we've been hearing a lot of complaints about the PH's build quality and aesthetics, and not so many people have received a perfect condition headphone and commented about it.
    I wonder what the real proportions are... horrible vs. perfect finish

    I like these enough, that I'd be interested in doing some of the Lawton mods (maybe even cups). I'm definitely going to do the SMC mod at some point. I just wish someone would post the part numbers...so I don't buy the wrong stuff. haha.

    Ok, so i have my Purple Heart TH-X00 for some days now, here are my observations:

    -Mine don't have cosmetics problem. Maybe i didn't check enough, but the only 'bubble wrap' mark i can see is when i check them with a flashlight, and even then, i didn't  wipe them, so maybe they are only exterior. Those head phone are gorgeous in my own opinion.

    -They are , probably like most headphone, subject to good instalation on the head. If the headband is not on top of my head, there is some  loss in bass, wich, i admit, in some circumstance could be a good thing as...
    -..they are bass monster. I come from AKG 601 and Shure SE425, my brain still have some burn in to do to process those in your face sub bass. Does are realy 'fun' headphones, as the frequency is like a smile in an EQ. I love them for engaging beats, and movies with sound effects(WOW!) For critical listening...they do miss the mids a little compare to my others headphones, but i did  buyed those headphones for bass and fun, not for detailed mids.

    Over all, i'm realy happy with my purchase. I did my listening mostly on my Grace Desing/Massdrop M9xx and on Fiio X3(the two where realy good), and on Samsung S5(as with others headphone, just ok, but lack  of bass/overall substance).

    I propose to you some bass intensive music(the real bassy part begin at 1m20s):

    Just remember that you will need to file down the center pin a little
