Hi, I am about to get my first cans.
Beyerdynamic DT990 600ohm. (will be using them for movies too)
But I need a amp and dac for it. Have a budget at about 500$ish i think. Allthough I am thinking of getting the http://www.headphone.com/packages/headroom-micro-amp--micro-dac-package.php,
The headphones will be used to watch movies, play games and listening to music in one room (does not need to be portable).
I need your help, should i go for these or do you know of a better match ?
Thank you for your help.
What sound signature do you prefer? The DT 880 was formerly the Beyer flagship, so it immediately comes to mind in your situation.
You can get a good little desktop amp/dac like the HiFiMan EF2A for about $170 shipped.
