Please, quite talking out your arse. The E9 has way more power than the DT 990 (600 ohm requires)....I know because it is how I currently drive my DT 990 (600 ohm). With the high gain switched on, I can't turn the volume pot past 10 o'clock without causing my ears to bleed. With the high gain switched off I can't turn the pot past 12 o'clock without causing my ears to bleed.

stop thinking your personal experiences with a 125 dollar amp actually mean anything definitive.

try actually researching and trying to understand something before you start using words that have a habit of making you look like an idiot in conversation. If you had spent any time reading you would realize that I am NOT talking about listening volume at all.

I am simply stating that the e9 DOES NOT HAVE THE CAPABILITY to deliver the max current that would be needed to reach the DT990s max power capabilities. Next time ill be smart enough to put a disclaimer saying 100mw through a pair of DT990s will result in permanent deafness.

In morons terms for you, The amp is not capable of blowing up your headphones according to the neat little sheets of paper in the boxes. That is all.

HOWEVER, you would be amazed at what a powerful amp does in terms of bringing a pair of headphones to life at lower volumes.

PS. hows the hum coming from that e9 at max gain/max volume and no source ?
