I've been using my D2 for a while now and I realized that the sound quality of the phonaks appear to be a LOT better on the creative sb live! 24bit's headphone out.
The soundstage on the D2 is a lot smaller. The bass roll off appears to be quite audible, especially when the bass is supposed to go very deep. An explosion on the soundcard would sound like an explosion, an explosion on the D2 would sound like intermittent explosions on top of each other. Might this be due to the uneven sound intensities for different low frequencies?
I think I'll make a resistance adapter to see whether it's the bass roll off that's messing around. If it is, maybe it's time to get an amp.
