As above, purchased from Mark and been used exclusively for my K712's sat at the PC. Some light marks off a 3M pad which I'd applied to stick to the amp to underside of the desk, would come off with some ethanol or acetone I suspect, but not tried.
Funding a Fulla2 for a change in setup.
I'll also be selling a Seiko watch elsewhere - Dracula model monster SRP313, if anyone here has any interest in such a thing! Lovely watch but recently bought a turtle which sees more wrist time.
If it's the same amp I'm thinking of it was made by Head n Hifi (Switzerland) rather than JDS Labs, Joe. Should have their name printed on the back panel iirc.
Just to provide a bit more info for potential buyers....
This O2 is the 'desktop' version which imho is a far better option for home use than the standard O2. 1/4" rather than 1/8" jack, power input is moved to the rear (far tidier solution) and sees the addition of L/R RCA outs allowing audio to be fed to powered monitors etc. Desktop version CANNOT however be powered using batteries, mains only. Comes with a UK power supply but PSU's for other countries are available fairly cheaply from either JDS Labs or Head n Hifi.
Rather than the default gain settings this one has custom gain of 1x and 3x which I think is a far better choice than the default 2.5x and 6.5x (clipping ahoy!!). In my time with this amp 1x was used almost exclusively and powered most of my headphones without too many problems, but 3x is there if you need more juice. 1x gain also makes this amp a very viable option for fairly sensitive IEMs and provides a nice black background and good volume control.
lobalwarming: Meanwhile... stick some cotton rolls under the pad roll to fluff 'em out a bit. Or just admit you like the free bass boost from worn pads. It's what I do. Except the admitting part

Mr Trev: "few days". It's said that for at least a couple weeks. I though about Brainwavz since they make adapters for Senn. Reviews say they're 3d printed garbage tho

Mr Trev: Maybe I should say "to heck with it" and just buy a ATH-R70x. Folks claim they're like 650s, but with proper bass
Oct 6, 2021 0:53:47 GMT
lobalwarming: Or... buy from Jeff... $10 more vs many $100s more for the R70x. Not sure they have 'proper' bass - more similar to the 650s than not. And not nearly as smooth up top.

Mr Trev: IIRC when I was on Headphone Bar's site they had Dekoni pads on sale for the same price as stock Senns. I'd probably go that route before being gouged an extra $10 (honestly, how can foam and velour be worth $60 in the 1st place)

Mr Trev: I just don't know how well the sound change would go down for me
Oct 6, 2021 15:07:15 GMT
lobalwarming: With the supply chain issues... $62 for a little foam and fabric is cheap. BTW - my official Senn pads cost $64 in 2019. And well worth it. ;-)

lobalwarming: I have the Dekoni Elite Velours for the 650. Gives them a big 'proper' bass boost, so you might like them - didn't at the time, but was my anorexic tonal period. Mood and whims change - pad rolling is almost as much fun as tube rolling. For only more $$$

Mr Trev: My X2 fulfills my "bassy" needs, so I don't need to go there. I'm surprised the X2s don't get more love. They seem to straddle the "fun" and "audiophile" lines pretty well IMO

Mr Trev: One of the guys I chat with on HF strongly prefers the Dekonis over the stock pads. He seems to be the exception though, most impressions I've read aren't too positive. Except for comfort, Dekoni apparent wins that hands down.

Mr Trev: Happy Turkey Day Lobey - and any other Canadians looking in
