so over the past few days ive been on the thread asking for headphones for my girlfriend with hyperacusis and i decided on getting the Mad Dogs or a unmodded pair of Fostex t50rp and mod them later...but im wondering if they are a good choice now because they are known to need alot of power and i dont have any headphone amps apart from using my Nad c372 stereo amp, would that be good enough for the Fostex/Mad Dogs? if so then i know what im getting :)
I use the T50RP (unmodded) with my NAD 3130, and they sound very good. I have other headphones that I prefer for most sources and genres, but Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Texas Flood" Sony SACD through the 3130, the Pioneer DV563A and the T50RP is hard to beat! The NAD 3130 is a mid-80s design (I got mine in 1987), so I am not sure that the more recent (and more powerful) C372 would be comparable as far as the headphone out is concerned, but my guess is that it would be no worse.
