can amp for MS-1?? help

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

just upgraded from PX-100 to MS-1 and I'm really into this! I'm a music (just hobbie) and i'm really excited with all this Hi-Fi heaphones.

I am now considering to buy some head amp. I read a few stuf about cmoy, but i have to admit I do not now almost nothing about this.

Having in mind i would like not to spend over 100 bucks (or around) what would you advise me to go to??

in the ms-1 appreciation thread,it seems like the little dot micro pairs well with the ms-1. cheap too!

i have a c&c box, but they aren't sold anymore. their strong suit is bass which is what the ms-1's need. there is actually one on sale now in the FS forums by theory. go get it, it's a great price!

I personally think that you should just save up your money for better headphones. You'll find a much bigger difference with a $200 headphone then a $200 amp. IMO of course

yes, i understand you, and yes, i am always looking into it, reading about all the stuff from better cans, so you think I will not have enough gain from a headamp with MS-1? is that it?

and just another thing: if i save money to better cans, wouldn't i need some headamps to drive them?

i know that, for instance better grados have the same impedance as the SR series, but don't they benefit from some headamp?

thank you!!

What he was trying to say is that headphones make the most significant difference in the overall sound of your rig. Not that amps will not make a difference.

I can see where he's coming from, but I don't share the same sentiment. If you're happy with the MS1s, then an amplifier to match is simply building on the quality sound that you already enjoy, and making it better!

Look into a Go-Vibe 6. Under $100 and excellent sound. http://www.go-vibe-headphoneamp.com/Go-Vibe_Models.html

x2 on the go-vibe 6 recommendation. They synergize very well with the ms-1's

Grab the GoVibe 5 for half the price right now. GoVibe 6 uses fairly low current opamps (AD8620/AD8610) that aren't meant to drive headphones directly. It's nice and all, but personally, I totally prefer AD8397 or LM6172 in that design.
