Sounds great with my Vali 2
Head band height adjuster is a little too loose for me tho :(
Get a better amp than the Vali 2 and you'll like them even more. I have the V2, and I think it's sound quality is rather poor regardless of what tube I put in it, though it does pair better with the HE4xx than many other phones. You'll find a substantial jump in sound quality with the Massdrop Cavalli Tube Hybrid compared to the Schiit Amp. (I own all of the above). The bottom is textured so much better, the top is so much sweeter, and the overall sound is so much more open. You'll find the Schiit to be quite constrained if you listen to your cans on the CTH and then go back to the Vali.
Is that true? I've heard from others that they don't pair very well with 4xx's. I wish I can demo them somewhere :?
I can't imagine why. I think the CTH is beautiful with the 4xx.
I use the 4XXs (and 6XXs) with a Jotunheim and an Oppo HA SE2 and each DAC/Amp drives as well as the other. I do use the higher gain setting and the Base boost on the Oppo. The Jotunheim provides a higher gain setting too, but I find either setting works fine, I just need to adjust the volume accordingly. Sorry, no tube amps to report on...
What is that thing you've put over the headband and where can I get one?!!!
Cute--I'm either going to buy one or have my sister over in the Knitting Community make one for me!
