this is a simplified explanation, but it's like a volume control. the higher the gain, the more power to your phones. usually what you're trying to do is match the gain to your phones, but of course, the higher the gain, the lower the battery life.

no down is low, but unless ibasso have implemented changes, its realy not very effective and there is not a great deal of difference between the 2 setting. in normal circumstances, there woiuld be a noticable difference in volume between lo and hi gain, but the D10 doesnt seem to have much change. I mean its there, but not very dramatic. all the same with your beyers you should be on high. but if you want my opinion; you should get some more suitable cans

i also had slight cracking in the highs with my D2000s, tho i'm not sure if it's caused by the headphones not being burn-in enough or the amp.. anyway it doesn't happen anymore ( after i ran the amp and the D2000s on high volume probably at around 3oclock position for 3 days or so), the thing is i never experienced it with my meier aria so i would guess it's the amp

Edit: up is high gain, tho i didn't need high gain on my D2000 just turned the volume up. btw you might like 2 consider rolling the amp, my D2000 sounds great with the 2228/8565 combo and gives more power(which would probably reduce the battery life, nothing dramatic i have noticed). the best way to go is to contact Hiflight and get some advice on opamps they're really easy to change. from the opamps that came with the D10 i found that 8532/8656 sounds better then stock with D2000, gives more power i think, you might like 2 try it, tho it doesn't give as transparent sound
