impedance for hd650 is 300 ohms and for d1 dac is 47 ohms which means they am not optimizing the sound quality of hd 650 if i use with d1 dac? please advise.

there are 2 types of dac
one without amp whereas
d1 dac comes with a built-in amp so it should be able to drive the hd650

base on my experience get a pair of book shelf speakers to pair with D1 dac cos
speakers sound better than HD650 headphones so use rca cable connect D1 dac to Swan HiVi M200MKIII instead of getting HD650 headphones

my current set up is d1 connected to audio engine a5+ with s8 sub. Cables all changed to The chord clearway.

but just thinking to get a headphone for night listening (listen to music quite loud)

Itís is said that this cans scales well and I tend to agree. On my iPad Pro it sounds thin, it sounds better paired with Creatives G6,much better with Chord Mojo and sounds best on my 80W Creek amp.
