Onboard sound on an MSI z97 Gaming 3. I've used them with my phone and they were fine.

you know the new Fiio K5 is more than capable of driving the X2 and it's much cheaper than the O2 and you won't have to deal with all those wires coming out the front faceplate.

Yeah everything is maxed out in Windows. I'll probably get the Fiio K5 now since I bought the headphones from the same website you just linked XD

Nope.

Also, I caved. This is going to be a struggle to wait for, but I can do it....I believe in myself:

Oooh, 'grats on the buy....do give us your impression of it when you get it.

Does anyone have any recommendations for in-ears $80 USD or less? I have been using ATH-IM50 for about a year and I like them but their large size kinda bothers me.

The Razers have higher sensitivity, like 112 or something, so they will be significantly louder with the same power. If you need an extra software boost it's definitely time for an amp.

Yeah, I'm REALLY hoping they give me that same excitement I got when I first heard the D7ks. From what I've read and watched, I get the impression it's going to be a great companion to my HD650. Hell, if I like it enough, I may go back to the HD600 for the rock/indie/etc genres.

Hmmm, that's a good thing to know. They are a direct fit, I assume? They look similarly sized from what I can tell in pics.

How is the bass in comparison to the LCD-2? How would you compare the two? I know they're probably totally different, but I'm curious since I know those are two headphones you most likely frequent. And I've just so happened to hear the LCD-2s tongue.gif.

Indeed, I will. I'm going to throw impressions and comparisons in from quite a few different headphones. I currently have some Shure SRH-440, HD650, AKG Q701, and Beats Studio 2.0 (more explanation will be given later) to compare them to in the full-size department. I'm going to try and throw in some comparisons to various IEMs/canalphones as well. Namely, the UE Triple.fi 10, Monster Turbines, and some Beats Urbeats. I also have access to some MEE Audio Sport-fi M6 and Xiaomi Piston 3s that I'll have to acquire for testing/comparison as well.

The IEMs will be thrown in there just because the TF10's handle bass so extremely well.

I mentioned them briefly in the above text, but the Piston 3s are quite good for their price. They're cheap, and the included tips didn't work out for me, but when I could get a seal with them, they were quite good for the price. However, I have no experience with the IM50. If you happen to be familiar with any of the IEMs/canalphones above, I could probably give you a brief comparison.

Eh... for the most part. You just have to stretch it over the mounting rings and rotate them to the right direction. Getting them on the ring is a PITA however.

The bass on the LCD-2 is just another class compared to the K553 in the sense that it extends a ton deeper. The LCD-2 doesn't have as much bass slam as the TH-X00 due to being open, but compared to the K553, there is a lot more body behind the bass.

Something I found interesting is that most planars are effectively sealed on the front side of the driver, between the driver and your ear, so the bass is pressurized in a similar way to most closed back dynamics. If the pads don't seal you get something like the HE-400s where the bass rolls off under 100hz.

I've owned the LCD-2 and the X00 and I think the LCD-2 bass is on a different planet. LCD-2 is so clean and fast all the way down, while I thought the X00 hits you with a bit of one note bass boost for that boomboom feel, but it's not accurate and a bit squishy, like what you might expect from much cheaper headphones.

The overall bass quality for the LCD-2 is definitely significantly better than the TH-X00. Then again, at $1000, it should be and would be a damn mockery if it wasn't. The TH-X00 however, has much more slam or thump compared to the LCD-2 which is what makes the headphones so fun. The TH-X00 stock overall is a lot slower and congested, therefore more muddy, compared to the much faster planars. That said, if you use Alpha Dog pads, it really opens up the congestion of the TH-X00, especially on the lower end. This makes the bass less boomy and more tight and controlled. Thing is, I don't want that. I LIKE the sound for the TH-X00. It is precisely what I wanted when I purchased it, a pair of fun, boomy closed back cans. The LCD-2, despite being much faster with much more bass texture and quality, are much more laid back in comparison. These are just my personal opinions of course.

No. Something is going on. I have a different MSI mobo but it has the same audio section. I plugged in some grado sr60es just now, and they get very loud.

Hell I can plug some speaker drivers that require a LOT of power directly into the port and even they sound fine.

Are you sure the plug is in all the way? If it is, try listening to the headphones and wiggle the connector to see if there is a jump in volume.

Start tapping the wire too and see if there is a break or increase in the volume.

Hell I can plug some speaker drivers that require a LOT of power directly into the port and even they sound fine.

Are you sure the plug is in all the way? If it is, try listening to the headphones and wiggle the connector to see if there is a jump in volume.

Start tapping the wire too and see if there is a break or increase in the volume.
I let the Headphones break in and they got significantly louder but still not as loud as my Razer.
