    I don't think I can do justice to this with one photo, but I'll describe: Headphones I use are 2 of the v-moda Wireless2, Beyer DT1770, T70P and DT1350, Grado PS1000e, Senal 1200 - earphones are Apple Airpods, Monk Plus, Edifier P190 - DAC/amps are DragonFly Red, FiiO E17k and Oppo HA-2, and amps are Lehmann Traveler and Electric Avenues PA2V2.

    Here are 4 of my favorites - the Grado I still have, the Pandora (now Sonorous) VI I sold off, the DT48a (the most horn-like sound) I donated, and the HD800 I donated. The Grado and the Beyer are the least accurate, and the Sennheiser and Final Audio VI are very accurate, but a bit bright.

    I hope someone can validate the claims. I did validate one thing about the Focal Elear - its lack of reflective noise in the earcups compared to other headphones.

    Never have been too much of a fan of the HD650, due to it's lack of top end (bit of a treble head here), but I must say for kicking back and enjoying this pairing is very good, and the iFi tubes really bring out some treble detail so they don't sound as dark as they normally do, actually enjoying this pairing quite a lot....

    The HD650's are borrowed from work for the evening.

    Well my Feliks amp is not excellent with the Grado Woody due to the high output impedance making them sound a little bloated and wooly, so I just finished building my desktop O2 amp from HeadNHifi:

    I had a pre-built O2, and I've been tempted to get a combo O2 DAC-plus-amp.

    Yeah this is my second, it is much better having the desktop version as I didn't really use my old one with batteries. Having a 1/4" jack out on the front and RCA in/out on the back is great. Although it is unlikely I will use the RCA out as it is controlled by the volume pot I think for use with active speakers.

    They are really good little reference amps, especially as a benchmark for reviewing.
