    High impedance headphone jack on new M1 Max 16 inch MacBook Pro

    I don't have a MacBook to try it with. But people do sometimes mention that they have a new MacBook Pro over at r/headphoneadvice. So would be nice to tell them what ways there are to bypass the low gain mode when trying to help them with headphones.

    High impedance headphone jack on new M1 Max 16 inch MacBook Pro

    Anybody find a setting in their MacBook Pro to disengage the low impedance gain mode? Thinking of how some low impedance, low sensitivity headphones would benefit from more output.

    What are we listening to right now..

    I think this is actually better than the original (I do like the original). And it's a great video to watch all of these people from all over the world performing the song.

    Just to note that the NFB-11's were never described at Head-Fi as warm.

    Master "deals" (massdrop, ebay, Amazon, etc.) Thread on Audio Product Sales

    Can you also share the price when posting? That way, everyone does not have to click on it to see what kind of deal it is. Price is $799

    Julian Krause measures front and rear DAC and headphone output of three PC motherboards

    Some not unexpected results, with high output impedance for all three motherboards, and weak headphone power output for two of them Skip forward to 6:15 to see the results table.

    THX Onyx Review (headphone adapter)

    Yep. I have the Tempotec Sonata HD Pro hooked up to my THX 789 amp. But no one wants to believe that a dongle DAC is just as good as the desktop DACs that cost more money. I love it because it doesn't take up any space. Just hangs out back with the cables. lol

    Hifiman Edition XS

    That's not a good way to describe it. Of course it needs power. Current equals Power divided by Voltage (I=P/V) The right way to think of it is that Edition XS does need a lot of power because they draw a lot of current, not that they don't need power. Whereas a difficult to drive high...

    Hifiman Edition XS

    Oh, well. I know he skips such things occassionally. Still helpful in terms of finding people who might know. And it's good when such questions and answers are in the review thread, because it's the first place someone else goes to look for the answer to the same question.

    Hifiman Edition XS

    Why don't you and @KenTajalli go discuss this in the Zen Can review thread? You can start by reading the review. Where Amir typically has an output impedance measurement for headphone amps (although I have not read the review)...

    Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro Review (headphone)

    I thought that was more of an alpha/beta feature. Is it now stable? That would be great!

    Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro Review (headphone)

    I'm not familiar with the SU-8. But I doubt it's anywhere close to what professional plugins can do. But yeah. Rupert Nene products are well known in the music production industry for adding a little color. My Fabfilter Saturn 2 will even allow you to separate the audio signal into frequency...

    Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro Review (headphone)

    I wish that equalizer APO would offer VST effects plug-in support. Then people could buy a solid state amp, and a saturation plug in commonly used in music production, and dial in the level and/or the kind of harmonic distortion they want. So it could be like switching between different tube...
