Interesting comments. If the $18 XE800s I just ordered from Aliexpress are the real thing, I hope to learn first hand why you like them so much.
For my clarification, are you using the N5 for these comparisons, or a different dap? If it is the N5 it sounds like I should be shopping for an amp rather than assuming they can adequately drive the Havi's and other cans, yes?
Day to day use I'm using a smartphone - Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
When I A-B'ed the two, I tested with Fiio Q1 DAC/Amp. The only DAP I have is the Xduoo X2 and it's strong enough to drive the Havi's.
Some other users have recommended the Topping NX1 as it supposedly pairs well with the Havi's.
