Lots of volume and bass, all clear, and yes the z2300 satellites lack in the mid range when not in front of them directly.
I might buy another set of z2300. Also noticed the headphone jack is actually an amp as well, use the volume knob to up the volume. My x530 is just a straight analogue connection for the headphone jack, so that's a nice little surprise.
Edit: Well scratch the second set of z2300, rather I'm going to get some audioengine A2's to go with z2300. Think it should bring out the mids quite nicely and give much better sound staging for when I just want to relax and listen to tunes while not sitting directly in front of the speakers. While the z2300's are great, you definitely lose out on the mids when you aren't sitting directly infront of them, at least until you turn it up to party volume. Highs and lows are fantastic for the z2300.
Anyone have any audioengine speakers?

I come again with a headphone suggestion.
I currently have the hd555 and am happy with them. But I use them at home hooked up to my zero dac. I was looking for some headphones to take outside and not leak too much noise so preferably closed.
Noise cancelling isnt necessary, and I have some iems for the gym so i now need suitable headphones for walking/bus/drumming
I was listening to the monster beats again and while the bass was powerful although muddy at times, i felt that the mids were a bit lacking (plus overpriced).
I like circumaural pads, have the hd555 so now looking for closed set.
Budget is about 150-200.
I am currently looking at the...
sony mdr xb700.
They are very large, stylish, reputed to have good bass, so i come towards my audiophile internet buddies for advice.

Dont know about the source, but listened to beats by dr.dre in the store. Sony xb have a better response when it comes to bass if you ask me. Awfully comfy pillows on the sony's too.

Had the sony's for a while now, quick review. They go looooooooow, the bass is excellent as you'd guess. Mids lack a little... highs really need a boost to not be drowned out by the bass (bass isn't bad there just isn't enough treble). Extremely wtfbbq comfortable headphones, they will fit the biggest ears... trust me. For what you pay for them, its a good deal I think, however if you have an extra 80 or so get something a class up with better treble.
Words of advice here...
Dont bother with computer speakers unless you just want something to beat around, ended up selling my z2300 once I got a reciever. Getting a polk psw505 12" 300 watt sub soon heheh, the receiver setup is just so much more versatile and sounds better to boot.

Anything else is just a waste of money honestly.

Uh, a headphone amplifier?
It's a neat piece of equipment - looks awesome!
Do you know the actual benefits of using this? Since it only has a 3.5mm jack input (and the same for output) I'm assuming you're meant to take audio from a source / device that's probably already got amplification on it - that could get interesting amplifying it further.
Yes, you could keep the source volume relatively low (20 ~30%) with the rest being done by "littldot" here -- but I still have to ask: What's the point?
