Let me start off by saying that I know this is probably a stupid idea. I've been looking at getting a nice set of cans in the low 200 buck range, and the DT 990's struck my eye because of their low price on amazon right now.
My conundrum is: If I buy these I won't have any money leftover for an amp.
From what I've been able to gleam, the 600 ohm version would have an upper hand on the other two skews (32 and 250 ohm) IF it was amped (As a side note: the 32 ohm version is 40 dollars more than the 600 ohm version). Obviously I'm planning on getting an amp eventually, but I just can't afford it right now. I was just wondering if it would even be worth getting these if it meant not being able to listen to them amped for the next couple of months. I'm going to be running them exclusively off of my laptop.
Thanks for the input!
P.S. If you can think of any other headphones within this range, feel free to throw out suggestions. Haven't quite ruled out the grado 250i's or the denon adh2000's yet
