I just purchased my first pair of good headphones and I'm not sure if i need an amp or not. I bought the Beyerdynamic dt831's as I am in college and living in a dorm so i needed something closed. I am very happy with the quality, but was conisdering buying the Total Airhead amp from www.headroom.com but wasn't sure if it was worth it given my sound card. I am running all my music off of my computer using the Hercules Gamer XP. It has an external rack with lots of inputs/outputs and claims to have a headphone amp built in. I doubt it's a very good quality amp, but I could be wrong. I just need some advice: is it worth the $150 to get the Total Airhead or not?
