guys i need help i just bought these cans and wanna know the best mixer for these headphones i have the fioo e10k but they arent powerful enough to push these headphones what the best option for around 150-200 ? also do you think the fioo e10k would be good with these please lmk thanks
Get the ifi Bl nano its around 199$ and way to good for its price.
its a portable dac/amp with balanced termination (3.5 trrs, but 3.5trs can still work). This can also be used for desktop for it has a usb powered feature or battery powered. IMO the ifi bl nano alone is better than the modi magni stack. Ifi bl nano is powerfull too! It can be used to the hd650 with no sweat :) It can also decode the highest form of file format such as dsd and its even MQA certified. What more can you ask for a 199$ dac/amp
I had never heard of that ifi and I might consider it for portable but it puts out about half the power of the magni... If you want one to just sit there the best for price is the schiit magni 3 and if you want portability then get the JDSlabs O2 with batteries... If you do really need a dac (my phone has a 32 bit dac and same with my pc soundcard so my sources are good) then id recommend the schiit fulla or honestly what he recommended for portable.
I have paired them with the fioe10k, works ok. A bit like watching a tv in sd resolution. Then i bought the o2 amp to pair with the fiio, more like full hd now. Later getting the grace design, hope this will be like 4k then. Bottomline, they are ok, but the hd6xx is scalable, the better the dac amp, the better the sound. But there is a tipping point, where you pay more to notice little improvement.
