Buy a MAC, I'm serious!!   My audio out makes the Beyers come to life, amp less.  No but seriously, Most people really do need an amp to make the Beyers shine.  I'm lucky as my MAC has a rebranded Wolfson Dac built in under Apples own name + It has enough output to RAWK!!!  The old saying that SOURCE matters is really true.  Look into getting a cheap little amp, maybe a E10 as mentioned above.   What's your budget etc?  There are even better options but the E10 and some EQ...

For me the difference isn't as big as most people make them out to be, They are so close to the same sound you really have to a/b and then it becomes nit-picking. The 250 is a little more balance sounding, slightly. A lot of people say they are V-Shaped, Not really, now the 990's are for sure. The 80's might have a tad more Bass, slightly. For me they are actually...
