Ganda talaga ng synergy ng 2017 13" MBP NTB at HD650. Totally destroys my HRT MSIII DAC/O2 Amp setup with that headphone.

Yep. Mas preferred ko yung laid-back at medyo bassy sound. Yung MBP, na complement niya ng mabuti yung sound sig ng 650. Very relaxing combo.

hello, long time no hear. :)

been slowing down sa headphone collection ko, so more or less nag-settle na ako.

portable


travel


condo


source:

LG V20
IBasso DX90
laptop->foobar->Audiolab 8200CDQ or Audeze Deckard

i still have with my AKG K7XX (massdrop wooo) and Beyer DT990pro 250, something to refresh my ears after the stax.  I recently got a Kinera SEED out of curiousity because it was all hyped in one of the groups, it was all hype, no perfrormance, sadly :(

hp i let go:
Focal Elear
Grado RS2E

Sorry for late reply, here's a short summary of the time it took from purchase to actual item acquisition:

- Purchased item at 11/30/2018
- Been in DHL purgatory for almost 2 months
- Finally arrived at PH shores at 01/19/2018
- "Departed from local distribution center"at 01/26/2018
- Claimed item from local P.O. at 02/01/2018

If I want it fast in the future, I think I'll have it shipped via ShippingCart na lang.

Wow! that was long...

Better to have it shipped to a relative located at CONUS and he/she takes care of shipping to Manila.

Thanks for the reply buddy

Got a DDA100 this weekend. It's the little silver thingy in the pic below:



Using it as a daily-driver amp because the NAD C372 (also in picture) runs way too hot and takes too much power to be using over long periods of time.

Listening impressions: This amp is clean! Liek super clean. When nothing is playing the speakers might as well be turned off. When listening it's very easy to find myself cranking up the volume because of clean and undistorted the output stays.

The amp also stays cool. There are no vent holes at all, and even after leaving it powered on for hours it's not even warm to the touch. I'd like to take a watt meter to it but I do believe it should be consuming next to nothing even when powered on and idle.
