I do have a question. I plugged the single mini din into the jack on the titanium hd and only got mono sound out of the left ear.

I used a 2-1 splitter (with red and white rca jacks) and connected it and now everything is great. How do these differ from my old cheapo Sennheisers?

Btw, incredibly comfortable. They do not actually touch my ears at all. Very strange feeling but eventually you forget you are wearing them.

They don't have a volume control unfortunately.

true. the cables are from schiit. they seemed decent enough and i didn't have any spares i could use. what cracks me up is that they call their cables "pyst" cables, which stands for put your schiit together. i also like how they recommend monoprice directly from their website if you want cheaper cables.

either way, no amp, no music listening. my hd 650's are begging for amplification.

strange thing too, i was emailed a fedex tracking number for the vali, but it hasn't actually been shipped according the fedex website. when i ordered everything, everything was supposedly in stock and ready to ship. but the vali hasn't been shipped out yet. fedex's website even says the vali was estimated to be delivered today.

don't get me wrong, i am not complaining. the good people at schiit were nice enough to save me almost $10 in shipping by combining the shipping for my cables with my modi. i sent them an email asking about the status of my order, but haven't heard back from them yet.

Quite the opposite. Be very careful with schiit. Normally when schiit releases a new amp, it is not as cheap as the vali, so the demand is not terribly high. But when they released the modi and magni, there was a huge demand for them, and the schiit company could not keep up with the orders. So quite a few head-fi members never got their amp or dac until the buyer filed a complaint.

Actually the people who complained about some of the schiit customer service had their comments removed from head-fi since schiit supports the head-fi website.

9 times out of 10, schiit is a fairly good company to deal with, but the 10th time is a real pain.

Re-visited my DT990's after selling off my Beyer Gel Pads, I must say I like them more than I did with the gel pads.

The gel pads made everything way to forward sounding and at times the mid-range would sound under-whelming.

Great amount of soundstage on the DT990, though I'm liking the AKG K550 more.

mini-DIN? Uh, do you mean the 1/8" jack?



Mini-DIN:

1/8" (3.5mm) jack:

And are you sure all the connectors are secure, and you are using the correct input?

Pretty good actually. I don't think that I could have got anything better for my needs at this price (£77.02). But I've only tested them for like 5 minutes.

They're interesting, because they're hybrids.
Hybrids tend to have problems with the crossover. Try testing it in "challenging" tracks - like mixes of piano and bass.
Try to notice if it sounds "weird/odd" - if it does, then that would be the crossover.

I've tested it and you're right, it seems like the piano in that track doesn't sound exactly as it should, but it's not very obvious and it still sounds decent.
