Hey there, I'm in need of a recommendation before purchase.
After further research, I've come across the conclusion that I'll probably need to look into investing in a sound card also as my current one (Creative Audigy ZS 2) isn't what I thought it to be.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed a little light on my situation!
Hi the dt990 is great but why not consider the dt770? I would imagine you would want more "impact" from the bass with your kind of music. Well i think in either case you will not be disappointed. I digress.....
If you are using these at home there is no need to get a portable amp like the e11. It would be a hasstle to make sure the battery is always charged. It also only puts out a max of 45mw to a headphone that can be run upto 100mw. Dont get me wrong i run my 250 ohm headphones just fine on an e11 but again you should get a nice dac/amp combo to get the most out of your cans.
This one is highly recommended for the price
It will be like a "sound card" plus headphone amp in one. You can connect it via usb but the preferred method is via optical cable.
The 770/990 can be had for 200ish on amazon plus the above dac/amp 100 = within ur budget of $300 max.
