    i have an eye on the stretch for a long time, since they should give good isolation and be quite comfy. still wonder if the resolution is good enough for classical?

    Hi, how much battery life do you get out of the A865 with the Momentum plugged in? and the Momentums are 50+ ohms right?
  3. DrKrFfXx
    Around 16h maybe. I have the battery protection thing turned on, which only allows the battery to charge up to 90% of its capacity.
    Momentums are 18 or 22 ohm (Information varies from site to site).

    My beat up old 5G 30GB iPod with Rockbox just installed. Headphones are Brainwavz B2's.

    Here is my current work rig. 20gb 4th gen iPod in a kimono case->FiiO L9->FiiO E5->Monoprice 8320

    cannot believe, that the monoprice is good enough for making an amp usefull.
  7. The Dan of Steel
    Believe it. It certainly helps. Otherwise I have to keep volume at 75% or more. The amp is also there for other sets I may bring TF10, IM716 among others. But this is budget-fi. At the very least the amp helps with iPod battery life. Also the E5 has that bass boost switch which helps when extra oomph is wanted.

    ok, did not know, that an amp saves batterylife. maybe i should use my amps more often :)

    I don't know why it would save battery life, since the DAP is supposed to be set at full volume (max voltage).

    I've read about it saving battery time but never noticed any difference personally. My DAPs fed from line out drain pretty much the same rate as headphone out possibly faster.
  12. The Dan of Steel
    My old iPod here has never had its battery replaced. When I used it direct from headphone port I would get a days worth of listening without having to charge. Now with LOD and amp I am on day 2 without a charge. So if i get another few hours its worth it. I also have turned down the volume all of the way as it's still pumping through. The E5 lasts quite some time before having to recharge so this keeps me off power for longer.

    Amazing Bass with a little tape mod on the $10 JVC HA-RX300, detachable cable mod as well since the one that comes with it is about 85' long... [​IMG]

    A good start to the hobby! The Sony players have a nice sound to them.[​IMG]
