I haven't, but from what people say (not many people, as these aren't incredibly the most popular headphones ever) and what info is out there, these seem to be pretty bass-oriented, kind of treble-shy.

Tyll had a pair measured at InnerFidelity:
http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SennheiserHD419.pdf
http://www.innerfidelity.com/headphone-data-sheet-downloads

Relative to other headphones, that's a relatively high amount of bass and midbass. Doesn't seem to be a fluke with a sample, as others in the family show similar characteristics (but the HD 419 tuned for slightly more bass, which agrees with the way Sennheiser markets them). Isolation seems average for closed-back headphones. The other data there isn't much remarkable one way or another. The above info doesn't exactly tell you everything there is to know about them, but it's a start.

Need to look into headphones, a headphone amp, and a DAC. Any suggestions? Spending limit is $500.
What kind of sound are you looking for? Circumaural or supraaural? Closed or open?

Reasonably priced means what it means, priced reasonably, so not ridiculously expensive.

the adaptor must be used when connecting to an iPad or a smartphone before use. Also, users who use a headphone with impedance values over 150Ω have to use the adaptor to use the HUD-mx2 to get the maximum sound output.

you had to open the MX-1 to access the gain jumpers. the AC adapter was just alternative power. i'm curious if the AC adapter on the MX-2 will give you more juice.

Guess I'll have to take a look at the specs on the adapter.

Additionally, the mounting of TPA6120A2, a high-fidelity headphone amplifier from Ti, allows users to use headphones with impedance values under 300Ω when using it in the factory default state and enjoy sounds with enough volume from the headphones with high impedance values of 600Ω after removing the gain jumpers (JP1 and JP2) inside the main body of the product.

Safe to say I won't be doing that for a while. Running a pair of DJ1s (were cheaper than the HFI-580s when I bought them) and Westone 2s.
