I am considering sending this back for a refund and just spending $120 more so i have a nice little setup... if they are too big though it is a no go, because I need them to fit in travel suitcase with my laptop.

Also, can I plug 2.1 Logitech speakers I own into the Schiit Fulla or will that not work?

For the headphones,what's your budget? Open or closed? Do they need to be portable? Any sound signature you're partial to?

The modi and magni are both 5 x 3.5 x 1.25”
 . So both stacked are 5 x 3.5 x 2.5”
. Do note you"ll also be carrying 2 small power adapters with them, as they operate off 16VAC not USB power.
You'll also be able to use more power hungry headphones if you decide to go wither the modi2/magni2 setup.

And yes, should be able to plug your Logitech speakers into the Fulla without any issues. thumb.gif

They would be pretty irritating to tote around for reasons Gilles stated above. If you like the Fulla, I'd say stick to that.

Also, yes, what is your full budget for headphones? Closed or open? Types of music? Sound type preferred?

$120 max, I love lively and warm sounding, HD 681 Evo and MP 8323 are my favs, I prefer both of them to my HD 598's. I'm not sure I even will buy another pair, I am just wondering now that I have a DAC/AMP maybe there is something nice that pairs with it that I don't know about.

MOdi 2 and Magni 2 really that much better in sound quality then the Fulla? If so it is worth the hassle to me, I don't plan on carrying my laptop around with me to many places or anything like that, once i get it setup it will be stationary for several months until I leave back home from uni, etc etc. I think I am going to mail these back and get the modi 2 and magni 2 non-uber editions. an extra 120 bucks... but will last me a lifetime probably if I take care of it, and hopefully it sounds even more amazing then the fulla biggrin.gif

I'm not familiar with the sound of the Magni and Modi gen 2, but I wasn't a huge proponent of the 1st gen. However, the sound actually might be a better fit for what it sounds like you enjoy.

Have you had the chance to hear the Audio Technica M50X? Very lively headphone with decent bass, even. And would complement your Fulla or even semi-decent sounding source like a phone.

For $120 or less, I don't think you'll find anything that's that much of an upgrade over your current headphones.

It all depends really, with your current headphones I doubt you'll see much improvement with the modi/magni either, but if you're planning to upgrade to something more power hungry and high end later on it might be worth it.

Hello
I finally choose what headphones i need . and im gonna buy http://www.amazon.com/Beyerdynamic-DT-990-Pro-250-Professional-Acoustically-Applications/dp/B0011UB9CQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1454854022&sr=8-1&keywords=dt990

Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250

this headset. For walking outside and i need to know now one thing. How to choose MP3 Player who can have enought power to work with that headphones good. I mean if i buy ipod shuffle 4generation 2gb i dont think so that it can be work with it well.

Yeah I had the M50x refunded, no sound stage at all, I couldn't stand them, I prefer my 8323's to them honestly.

I think you are right. Just going to stick with my HD 681 Evo and 8323's, I have tried a lot of headphones, and these two just speak to me. AKG is on Massdrop again, heard they have the best soundstage ever... ugh I'm tempted but I don't know.


edit: 3d precision soundstage is what i love the most in cans, the 8323 do surprising well for only 15 bucks, my hd 598s are better, but is there anything like that out there that is known for the best "3d imaging" sorry I dunno the slang.
