Tried the O2 headphone amp with my hd598cs today. (hd6xx still on the way). I paired the O2 amp with the fiio e10k dac, and the sound is worse than connecting the headphone directly to the fiio e10k! anyone knows if i am i doing something wrong? its not meant to be connected to a fiio dac/amp? thank you for any help.

Are you connecting via line out? Or via the headphone jack?
I don't own a fiio, but try the line out.

Very good point. I was connecting it via headphone jack. Will try again via line out. Didn't realise there was a line-out in it. Thanks!!

Good to hear! A rule of thumb is to not mix two amplifiers together.
