Thank you. That’s not strictly speaking the usage I want, I listen almost exclusively in bed or at the computer. I am not using these kinds of headphones on the go but I’d rather not have a mains-powered DAC/amp.
Plus, I use my iPad (USB-C) as signal generator, so I am probably very limited in the selection of compatible devices. I will investigate a bit but it looks like I will return these Noires, if that’s an option. While the Onyx doesn’t audibly distort, it probably doesn’t do them justice and perhaps that’s where the lack of bass comes from.
I've had good experiences with Dan Clark as far as returning. They do have a restocking fee.
I think with low impedance headphones, it's current limited. But that's getting a bit beyond my wheelhouse.
What is wrong with the ath-m50x?
I also have the DT-770 Pro (250 ohm), which I find sound pretty darn good for the price and are very comfortable. They have extra large ear pads, though they are not as deep as the Noire and the tips of my ears do sometimes hit. They also come in lower impedance versions that would be more dongle-friendly.
