I have an el cheapo case and the front panel is connected to onboard.

I expected more bass from this.. maybe it's my config?

The sound card doesn't have a header for the front audio to connect to?

The ATH or even the Beyers are your best bets.

I wouldn't be able to talk my wife into new Beyers (especially when I can fix the old ones for less than 1/3 the cost).

I ended up with the JVC HA-M55X. Wouldn't be my first choice, but I just needed something for the plane and my trip.

Thanks for the info. Responses to your questions:

Yes I was comparing the total cost of both the DAC and the amp. For the E07K/E09K combo the cost would be $198 while the M+M combo is $200. I was asking if the M+M stack is work the extra money over just adding an E09K to my E07K. Also, I don't think I can use the E07K as a DAC for any other amp besides the E09K. It uses a proprietary plug on the bottom of the DAC that docks on the E09K to bypass the internal amp. As far as I know, there is no other way to bypass it. I would have to buy to Modi anyway if I were to purchase the Magni.

So here is the situation I'm looking at:

- Keep the E07K and use it only as a portable DAC/AMP.
- Buy the Magni/Modi stack for home use.
- Buy a set of Sennheiser HD 650s ( if I can ever afford them) to use with the M+M stack.

That brings me another question. Are the HD650s the right choice? Is there another set of cans I should turn my attention to? I picked those because it seems like ever audiophile has a pair of HD650s in their collection. They must be good, right? What justifies the $500 price tag on them? Is there another set of headphones that costs less with similar audio quality? I'm looking in the $350-$500 range for high impedance open back headphones. Do any of the Beyerdynamic headphones compete with the HD650s? What about the HD600s which are $100 less than the HD650s?

First of all, it wouldn't be a big deal at all to just run the E07K's output into another amp. It's just kind of overspec'd on max current output for that purpose. Not ideal, but it might not even be noticeable.

But actually, you can use the E07K's line output—bypassing the internal amp—if you buy the little L7 dock.


There are a lot of opinions on headphones. Even cost aside, some people like HD 600 over HD 650. Others prefer HifiMAN HE-400, especially if they like clean sub bass. Some would take Beyerdynamic DT 880 or AKG Q701 (or K701, K702, anniversary variants). etc. Actually, prices on 650 and 600 are up compared to a few years back, so $500 doesn't sound too enticing there. There's the used market too.

Ultimately, it's better if you can try it for yourself.
