Would these benefit from a DAC or headphone amp?
I got the 40s few weeks ago and the left speaker has gone bad already, distorts which is annoying. My Sennheisers lasted 6+ years.
Thank you! Did think it looked pricey (shock)
I have these and they are great headphones at this price point. £96 I paid in November 2017 (get the time machines ready ;) ). Sound is such a subjective topic and more down to personal preference. What sound some people will like will not necessarily be the same for other people but I genuinely find these to be outstanding. For more research there are lots of reviews to look at on various sites and on YouTube if you want a video review. In regards to the bluetooth adapter linked in one of the posts I think it is still well overpriced for what it does and cheaper alternatives are available. If you look at bluetooth receivers for example they will work. Also the battery life on the adapter is average at best judging by a lot of reviews I have read when I first researched about the adapter. Admittedly a bluetooth receiver will not look as good as the adapter (might not fit as snugly either, mine doesn't) but it will work more or less the same but without the functioning volume controls.
