How much more powerful (volume) are non-portable than portable amplifiers? In the $100-200 range

I have fiio e11 and want to switch to a schiit audio mangni 3 headphone amplifier, or something

Is there any easy way to see this in the specs?

As an example of amps vs e11 :

e11 sends 100 mw into 32 ohm. O2 sends 613mw into 32 ohm. FiiO K5 sends 1.5W into 32 ohm. Magni 3 sends 2W into 32 ohm.

Cheap portable amps can't compare to desk amps when it comes to powering harder to drive stuff and just sending lots of power.

Have we ever reached a consensus whether Audio-gd is good or bad? I have an HD800 and I want to upgrade from my O2/ODAC stack with a budget of around AU$700 - 800 but now that Schiit seems shady as fuck I don't know what to do. Other than these two companies it seems that no one else offers high value gears in different pricing tiers.

This is the A-gd stack I'm looking at. Looks bad-ass in silver:

Never heard the DT880 but I used to own the 400i. Clean sound, good imaging and comfortable but somewhat weak bass and peaky trebble. Also Hifiman build quality. I didn't have any problems in the few months I owned aside from them feeling cheap but I'm careful with my headphones.

I'm looking for some cheap IEMS after my last one broke. I plan on taking them to uni with me so I'd prefer IEMS as they're simply better but headphones are okay as long as they're portable. Basically looking for something portable and taking headphones outside can sometimes look goofy which is why I'd rather have IEMS. The ones I had before where the Sony MDR XB50AP which are pretty great for the price and I might just buy them again but I want to check if maybe there's something better in the market now.

Closed fit for portable use (so no long unremoveable cables ala DT770) and yet comfortable for all day long use.. it's hard.
HD 569 would fit, but they're not sturdy enough for mobile use in my opinion.
MSR7 are great portable cans with stunning sound quality in the range, but the comfort isn't really there. Tiny earpads and high clamping force.
Most of the more comfortable options in that price range won't have the sound quality of these, particularly if you don't want a basshead/dark headphone (ew sony). Portable headphones are a bag of compromises anyhow.
> I'm also looking for a DAC/AMP PC combo for them. Thanks!

Go into your recon3d settings and disable all software enhancements. Looking into your sound card it looks like there's a shitton of stuff that only exists to break the sound anyway. Disable SBX, smart volume, the built-in EQ (if you wanted EQ parametric ones are better anyway) and everything you can find that's doing something to the sound. Sound blaster control panel seems to have a mixer setting, look if it's independent from the system volume and adding gain to it.

Next time you build a computer don't buy those dumb gaming sound cards with their crappy driver and configuration suites, just use the built-in realtek chips, and if you need something of a higher quality then buy an external dac/amp that's not made by one of those 'tech' companies that pile misfeatures over misfeatures.

Welp, looking into it further your sound blaster does seem to actually have a fixed high gain on their headphone out that can't be changed. The quickest and cheapest fix is to just throw your card into the trash, if it's a PC built in the last 5 years the motherboard should have onboard audio which won't suck even one bit as much.

This is my story

Friday january 9th, I awake from a nap after a dream where I found myself finding a synthesizer foot pedal with a lead going to my car, then going into the backyard to see that my father left the shed, and that it now no longer in my house. i was inside my house as it was before the addon in the past


One I awoke I saw my buds in group chat were gonna party tonight in the college town, so woth nothing better to do and feeling like a POS for sleeping the sun away, I drove us on the half house road trip to our good friends groul house for a swell time of drinks and comradely.

And once the party wound down and more people blacked out onthe couch and went to sleep I find myself wearing a set of xbox one wired turtle beaches. And to be completely honest they have absolutely no lower mids and zero bass at all. Iphone ear poss actually sound better than these. $20 senhiesers which are a fraction of he price are 100x better and those shtty fuckers dont even have a concept of a bass at all. Really fucks up composing music because you dont know hat all of yout music sounds flatter than my niece.

I have had an Audio GD NFB15.32 since August 2013. While I've had no problems with it I'd like to get something a bit better sounding (read: less warm and more neutral, detailed) but I have no idea what to get. NFB11 is an option, as is a Modi 2 Uber + Magni 3 schiit stack. Whatever I get must have a good strong headphone amp and pre-amp functionality for my speakers, and preferably able to take optical, though I could tolerate USB as long it's well integrated.

That said, I seem to hear a lot of shit from the turbo autists at SABF about both brands. Are the measurable shortcomings that they circle jerk about actually detrimental in any kind of audible way? Or can I ignore it? If they're both so shit, what is there in the same price bracket that's better?

innerfidelity never does any objective reviews of amps and they never reviewed any actually popular amps until now with the magni 3. There's no o2, there's no element, there's no bottlehead crack for those who are into tube, there's no e10k or fulla which are two of the best selling 'starter' cheap entry to amps, the entire amp page on innerfidelity is a bundle of snake oil no one outside of a very tiny niche ever cared for.
Not that their reviews of headphones are much better, but at least their measurements are useful.. somewhat. Tyll is a hardcore flip-flopper and there's no rhymes or reason as to when a headphone makes it to the wall of fame, and when it gets pushed out. He recently removed the HD800S from the wall of fame for fuck's sake. His justifications never make a shred of sense. No, the focal elear is not a replacement for the HD800S.

Yes, he's a fucking phony, probably deaf and seems to very much act by following trends in hifi communities rather than judging by himself for realz. When the Fidelio X2 came out, he claimed it was better than the HD600 :

> The only good reason to purchase an HD 600 over the X2, in my opinion, is when you're pairing it with a high output impedance tube amp. The 35 Ohm impedance of the X2 just isn't going to pair well with a 100 Ohm output impedance OTL amp. The HD 600 will remain an important headphone for those applications...unless Philips comes out with a 300 Ohm X2, then all bets are off.

Then when the Hifiman HE400S got reviewed, guess which headphone it dislodged from the Wall of Fame? The X2, while the HD600 still remains there. But if the HE400S is better than the X2, and the X2 is better than the HD600, why is the HD600 still on the wall of fame?

Answer: Tyll is afraid of public opinion and the HD600 rabid following. He's not an actual reviewer, he's a fucking phony.

>> No.64676617

>>64676579
This is normal behavior when it comes to the HD600.
People keep being awed by random headphones, only to eventually come back to HD600.
Tyll is simply as susceptible to this as anyone. Or, to say it more simply: HD600 just are that good.

Leaving solid state amps on is fine, power cycling is more damaging to electronics than simply keeping power on. Usually with most things, if you use them on a -daily- basis and thus would have turned them off and on at least once per day, you're likely to damage them more by power cycling than by leaving them on all the time. The lines become blurrier if you use rarely a product and it's better to power off in those cases.

Do the test. Realize you can't hear the difference between lossless and well compressed lossy and forget about this audiophool nonsense. Unless you intend to alter the source media (DSP, editing it to make your own mixes or sampled music) you don't need lossless. Lossless is useful for editing, not for listening.

>I still have this O2 amp(stock opamps) right next to me. Just for fun, I hooked up the Sony ZX2 to the O2 amp via the headphone out(ZX2 doesn't have any additional analog opamp, so I don't think it matter if I use the headphone out). I just can't believe how O2 amp makes everything sound so grainy and hollow and borderline harsh. There's not much sparkle left in music.
>Even the soundmagic A10(source: ZX2) sounded so much better than this O2 piece of shit.
