    I think that Grado's have elevated treble, not rolled off.

    Edit: I'm in love with my Audeze / HA-1 pairings.

    Okay excellent.
     
    I thought the Grado's or wood cans would have a warmer sound.
     
    I will research the Audeze.
     
    If I wanted a dirtier muddy sound what would I do? Do I need a tube amp?
     
    I like the Oppo HA-1 and Senny rig for just about everything. Just jazz/ blues sound a bit off. To clean.

    Like what the above poster said, Grados have elevated treble, not roll-off.
     
    Maybe you can try Audeze LCD2 (if you can take the weight and clamp) or Oppo's own PM-1.

    I was just going to say PM-1. It should add precisely what Badas is looking for. Or wait for the PM-2 for much less money and you can get the PM-1 ear pads to 'roll' the sound.

    Another nod for PM-1 (or PM-2) would definitely be one to try. Sounds like it would be a good fit to the criteria.

    Okay. I will avoid doing that.
     
    So don't look at the amp. Look at the cans would be better. I do like the look of the Audeze LCD2. I really would like a wood pair of cans as well. I would spring for that $$ if I didn't have to buy another amp.
     
     
    Interesting idea. I'm a real Oppo fanboy. It might be too much tho. I have the HA-1 plus the headphone stand and two Oppo BDP-103D's under it.
     
    I will put the Oppo's on my shortlist.
     
    Could I pad out my Senny HD700's?

    I haven't heard the PM-1 but from what I gather they are a brilliant match with the HA-1 (go figure).

    I can say that the LCD-2 revision 2 (pre-Fazor model) sounds fantastic with the HA-1 when I want that thicker sound. All the details are there but the warmth of the sound is just heaven when the mood strikes.

    Edit: PM-1 is at the top of my short list for my next set.

    Is there any reason why the PM-2 is $400 cheaper than the PM-1?

    There is a ton of info about this in the PM-1 thread, but basically less metal, more plastic and no leather or wood display case. The drivers are the same though.

    Okay. Knowing me I would rather the PM-1.
     
    However at $1000+ price range I would rather the Audeze instead. I really want to try a wood can. [​IMG]

    Try asking in the PM-1 impressions thread. There are a lot of comparisons there with the LCD-2 and might help give you a baseline between the two.

    Since the OTG adapters always end up with a Female USB A end...you would need a USB A - USB A male cable as well

    Not a solution, but here's an interesting cable...

    EDIT

    Here's one that would work...

    This is what I was originally asking. I know how OTG works but I didn't know there was a way to turn the female full size USB into a male plug to use with the front port.


    And thanks to you for posting the actual part needed.
