That reminds me of the story about a great conductor of a bye gone age Otto Klemperer. After a recording session at the EMI studios he said to the recording engineer that the last take would have to be redone as there was a mistake in the orchestra. The recording engineer replied there was no need as he could patch it. A shocked Klemperer exclaimed to his wife "Lotte, ein Schwindel!"
Lotte was Klemperer's daughter, not his wife:)

I think both HEDD Two and DCA E3 for now become the most "technical capable" headpone for around $2-3K price range. Both really excel to render the last micro detail/texture, with precise pin point imaging, accurate decay and still being natural in overall timbre.

HEDD Two has advantage in term of spaciousness, airy, with more linear presentation, while DCA E3 with more forward character bring more engaging feeling (especially in Midrange area), but also wit narrower presentation. DCA E3 is a little bit more forgiving in upper mid when need to play not-so-good recording though.

I just have "hard time" to choose which one should I pick as my third headphone lol.

I'm thinking Raal CA-1a might also deserve a nod in that category, and I'm looking forward to finding out for myself later this year.

There is another joke on this topic. A guitarist cannot play a solo while recording in the studio, he tries for a long time, but nothing works. The sound engineer says: Oк, do not suffer, just play me the notes, I will do the solo myself.

What amplifiers work well with this headphone?

I have had good results with the SMSL SP400, Schiit LYR 3, Schiit LYR+, Lake People RS-08 and Violectric V222.
Good to know. Thank you.

I have had good results with the Sparkos Labs Aries.

Just a word of negativity in this compilation: I found that a very excellent DAP (A & K Kann Cube) had quite insufficient power. This may be an indicator of a general problem with Digital Audio Players.
Thank you.

Yeah I can imagine that would be a good combo. My HEDD1 sounds really good out of my Corda Classic which I fitted with a bunch of Sparkos Labs parts.
