    Neither was the Dragonfly 1.2.

    They are great for IEMs, but not made to drive 300 Ohm cans.

    HD600s alright on the Mojo. But they sound a lot better out of my CD player + BH Crack setup. They are meant for desktop audio TBH.. get some closed portables that are low impedance for your Mojo.. The TH-X00s really shine on the Mojo and don't sound much different than my desktop rig with the difference being from the DAC and tonality of each one. (Theta vs. Mojo)
    Also.. I have never heard the Dragonfly red but it aims at a different price range than the Mojo. Also there is no way in hell they could fit enough components inside that little tiny thing to make it sound as good as the Mojo is for the cigarette pack size.
    To back up what I'm saying for performance look.
    How low a headphone sensitivity can Mojo sensibly drive?
    "I wanted Mojo to work with the most sensitive IEMs available, and to do that I had to improve noise. That's why Mojo has 125 dB of dynamic range. To do this was not easy, but it means that you can drive any headphone on the market as Mojo has extremely low noise, but is able to deliver over 5V RMS and 0.5A RMS of current"

    1. High output (2.1 volts) drives almost all headphones, including power-hungry models

    As the others have said, the HD-600 was not designed to be used with portable gear.  But if its your only option then some have used a Pono in balanced mode with good results.
    I've used my Fiio X3 and X3ii to see if they can drive the HD-600/650 and they will play fairly loud but the sound is a little thin and lifeless when compared to being driven by the BH Crack and even the Ember.
    As @wahsmoh noted, you might be better off getting a easy to drive closed portables for use on the go and a decent amp for the HD-600 while you are at home.
    For cables I would just get something from Amazon, there are some decent ones for $25-35, wouldn't pay much more since the sound will usually be the same.

    How is the HD600's upper treble compared to the 650? I heard from many places it does have better treble extension than the HD650, but maybe it seems like the 650 has less treble than the HD600 because of the more mid bass.
  14. madwolfa
    HD650 sounds muffled compared to HD600. It's not only because of midbass, it really has less treble energy there..
  15. Arniesb
    Yup, but in my opinion largest difference is in upper mids where HD600 are much more energetic. In my opinion HD650 upper mids is 50/50 Sometimes its vocals is very smooth, creamy, romantic, full of life, but sometimes severely lacking extension when vocals play. I think HD600 have perfect upper midds balance, but other parts of mids are still better in HD650. Whould be nice to have HD600 or T1 upper mids and HD650 lower and middle part of mids:)
