got a schiit fulla 2, upgrading from shp9500s. i'm pretty sure the fulla will push it, otherwise i can order a magni 3 and tack it on. super excited for them to arrive in 2 freakin months lol. hate that about massdrop.
i was considering the hd600s but for 200 you really can't beat a brand new set of 650s.
I bought the Fulla 2 for this as well, with the plan to get the magni if it doesnt pull its weight. I have a pair of Blue Mo-Fi with teh built in AMP and the fulla 2 doesnt seem to push as hard as the amp in the headset.
yeah i heard it gets like... loud but not like too loud for hd600/650s.
it pushes the ships fine, easily blowing my ears out but they can be pushed with front panel audio just as well.
fulla 2 is bae. i have my jbl lsr305s plugged into the passive headphone knob, turntable in front 1/8. basically an all in one in such a small form factor lol.
The Magni 3 is an excellent pairing and will provide a slightly more open sound. It will also increase the fullness of the sound. The Magni 3 actually has more power at 300 ohms than the single-ended side of the Jotunheim.
i'll probably buy one then lol. should be a perfect combination. i kinda wanna get a modi anyways for optical.
That's the stack I use at work. A Modi 2U and a Magni 3. Very, very good with everything from my Porta Pros to my HD800S'.
there's a magni 2 b-stock on schiit right now. gonna grab that for like 30 off a magni 3.
I'll tell you that the Magni 3 is a MUCH better pairing with the 300 ohm Sennheisers. I had the OG Magni, the Magni 2 and 2 Uber and they always felt like they were constraining the HD600's and HD650's.
ah gotcha. idk how much the magni 3 changed over the 2, but the 2 will def be an upgrade over the fulla 2.
i'll look into graphs about the 2 vs the 3.
From the Inner Fidelity Review:
"Jason Stoddard of Schiit put it in the official announcement:
It's an entirely new topology, one that offers considerably higher bandwidth, together with lower distortion and noise, than any other Magni before it. In fact, Magni 3's gain stage is substantially similar to the one used in the $699 Vidar speaker power amplifier."Read more at https://www.innerfidelity.com/content/schiit-magni-3-affordable-headphone-amp-and-preamp#EGm4OHd6uqwBFbfp.99
When I got the 3 I noticed immediately how effortless the amp sounded with my HD6XX than had my previous Magni 2 Uber. I specifically chose that headphone to do the comparison based on my past experience with the earlier Magnis. Even with my Porta Pro's (the headphones I used on a daily basis with the M2U) sounded more open and alive on the 3. IDK if a graph can show that, but it was very easy to hear.
I don't want to sound like I'm dumping on your choice of amp, I just want to make sure that you are able to get the most out of your HD6XX's while staying within your budget. I hope you understand.
yeah definitely lol, i know what you mean. i was checking reviews all day to see exactly what the difference was from people who'd tried it. they're surprisingly uncommon but what i found was if you just had the magni 2 or uber or the magni 3, all of them would be good, but if you compared the 2 and the 3 the difference is just enough where the 3 would sound better.
again though, $50 price difference, i decided to get it just cause b stock and it wouldn't be enough where i'd be like "damn i wish i had bought the 3"
edit: forgot it was 60 with shipping in vs 110 for a magni 3
got my magni2 comin in 2 days <3
