Does anyone here own one of these and has some feedback regarding it's use with Bitwig (latency, monitoring, headphone amp)? Thanks!

I'm happy with that. Very flexible routing (now Bitwig browser going thru Master Bus with all analysers via iD14 loopback) and stable driver. As you can see in specifications, iD14 has very powerful headphone preamp so HD650 sounds very loud. Only the microphone preamp is too weak for the SM7B, but I just ordered little microphone activator. In addition the iD14 is also good as a monitor controller.

Nice! Do you know if the volume control is analog? I can't find any information about it.
Have you tried it with low ohm headphones (under 80 ohm)?

Since the main volume controller is reassignable and working separate for 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 (headphones) and as mouse wheel, I think no - it's digital. I tried a few headphones models and I haven't any problems. Although I do not know what exactly you expect from the headphone preamp. It is good (if not the best) for this class of audio interfaces.

I don't use headphones that often but it's good to know that when needed the quality is there.
