LOL @ the thread revival ... :wink:

But man ... best player I ever owned ... like a Unicorn(tm) really ... and all for about $140 back in the day ...

How is the batter life on it? Must be pretty low at this point ...

Enjoy it, though ...


Battery life is pretty fine. Easily last hours. Maybe because I dont use it much, maybe once in few months.

Has anyone ever used HD6xx/HD650 with SFlo2? Unable to find any impressions.

My HD600 worked fine on my sflo2 when I tested it a few months ago. But honestly it's not hard to drive as people want to make it believe, my fiio E5 does a fine job as well.

Edit: For what's it's worth I just made a blind test between the sflo and my k5 pro (fed by the sflo line out) and it's virtually impossibly to distinguish them when listening to the HD600. But the E5 would give the same result as well.

Or even just the same one... With a slightly faster processor and less crappy GUI... And maybe reduce the power of the line out a tiny bit.

I still have mine, maybe I should see if it still works.

I still have one, imo doesn't sound great through hp out, but perfectly good through line out, which is how I used it back in the day, paired with an ibasso P3 amp. Now I have an ibasso P5 amp and much better daps lol.

Agreed. HO is not that great. LO is heavenly. By the way, is it mandatory to connect an amp after LO? What will happen is we directly connect LO to headphones (& use EQ sliders for volume control)?

The line out is 2V, it's a bit risky to use without an amp, but it might work with the equalizer. However there shouldn't be any noticeable difference in terms of SQ versus the headphone out.
