Looks of this product are impressive, colour is matching with my MacBook Pro. Easy to operate. Display is giving the required information and comfortable enough to operate through settings. The volume has 0-99 points of increase. The volume knob acts like button for selecting the settings & to navigate through, you need to rotate the knob. There is a small push button beside the volume knob which gives access in & out to settings. I am using my DT1990Pro to listen the music and this devise is driving my headphones crazy. With default gain settings and volume at 50% I am comfortable. The sound is smooth and can clearly differentiate the vocals & instruments, all lows - mids - highs can be clearly heard. I tried changing the filter settings and right there I could feel the difference. For me I wanted something which can drive my current headphones at full capacity and also the headsets (higher versions) on which I invest in future. I got what I needed. Yes I also tried listening music connecting my IEM's - FiiO FD-5 and I could not go beyond volume at 1% - that's crazy (Gain settings at default). IEM's are nothing to this device. Overall I am satisfied. You can also change its OPAMP's, May be in future if I plan to change its OPAMP's will write more on the same. Thanks Headphone Zone.

I want share something I felt, you changed my perspective on music & now I am enjoying it to its core. I used to have migraines & lot of headache earlier and painkillers were my goto option & this situation is changed drastically in past 5-6 months because of you. I hardly used any painkillers in last 3 months. Thanks to headphone zone once again. Now music is my goto option for relaxation, by listening to binaural beats & solfeggio frequencies. Of-course regular music too.

This makes us really happy!!! We appreciate the genuine feedback and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well.
