So I was looking around the internet for a nice pair of headphones to accompany me at college and I came across all these posts of people saying for those high end audiophile headphones a portable amp is suggested for best audio performance. The audio sources that these headphones are gonna be used with are
1) iPhone 3gs
2) hp envy 14 laptop (with beats audio)
I have no idea if these devices produce good enough audio for the headphones to not need a portable amp so I was hoping to come to this site that everyone keeps mentioning as a standard and get some help
do I really need a portable amp?
