How much better would you say the DT770/80 sound than the 555s with Eve 6 or the alike?
It's hard without A/Bing, but I'd say that Eve 6 is more fun and enjoyable with the Beyers. However, that's the combo of the Beyers + 0404, vs. the HD555s straight from an X-Fi. The bass is much punchier and definitely makes its presence known with the DT770s though.

I wish you wouldn't have sold me the HD555s before you got the DT770s. So many questions that could have been easily answered.

I had both for about 3 days, I think. But I don't think I listened to the HD555s at all once I got the Beyers.


Edit: Got outbid on the HD580s... god, today is just not my day.

What was the final bid at?

Btw, I've always wondered, what does 'FÃ*rinne Agus Cóir' mean?

It's not over yet, but it's above my price limit. Currently at ~$145 plus $10 shipping.


And FÃ*rinne Agus Cóir is Gaelic for "Truth and Justice". Planning on getting it tattooed on my left shoulder this summer. =D

Hey guys,

How do these measure up?

Headstage Lyrix Pro USB Headphone Amp
C&C Box+ Portable Headphone Amp
C&C XO Portable Headphone Amp

Is the XO worth twice the price of Box+ from a sound quality perspective?
How do the C&C ones compare to the Headstage option?

Many thanks

for about the same price as the box+ I'd get the mini3. It's a better all around amp. On the other hand the box+ + Senns + rock =

Hey thanks for the reply and the info!

That selection is what I can fairly easily get hold of in the UK. Very thin on the ground for headphone amps....

What about the Box+ +Grados + Rock = ?

Is the quality of the XO much greater than the Box+ or is the money in the cosmetic engineering?

I'd say go with a more neutral amp like the mini3 with Grados.

Although, I'd just get a nice tube amp... but that's me

Well, got the headfive today, so I don't have to mess with trying to get my money back. Thankfully.


Now I just have to wait until 7 pm for the front desk to let me have it. >.<
