Has anyone tried this headphone with the iFi Audio Nano iDSD Black Label? Is it any good? Thanks!

They work, but it's close to max on quiet songs. I have both of them. The Nano pushes all my headphones except the MK3s and HE560s.

I'd say on the nano bl they're close to being maxed out of the direct output. Around 3-4 o'clock on the dial is needed to get a good volume out of them and for quiet songs you could definitely give them more. The nano will suffice but the micro would do a much better job of pushing them to their best.

I have the Nano Black. I’d recommend reading up on reviews, there’s quite a few out there. It pushes my HD6xx’s very easily (better than I was expecting) and sounds fantastic. If you want portable, I don’t think anything comes close to it for the price.
Check out these HeadFi threads on the Nano Black, should help you decide whether it’s right for you or not.

There's also a very detailed in-depth review on Headfonics too: https://headfonics.com/2018/02/ifi-nano-idsd-black-label-review/
He breaks down the pairing with several different headphones and compares it to other amp/dacs in the price range. Worth a read.
