no single headphone will please everybody, but dismissing them based off of how they sound from an onboard soundcard is a premature decision. no one is suggesting a 1000 dollar amp. i have seen plenty of budget suggestions for the OP posted here in this thread. if you're not a believer in amplification then that is your loss.
Yes, my child.
If you need me to carry your ass on the beach, I can do that.
If OP's solution is a $1000 amp, then that's fine.
I said come and see me if that doesn't work out.
I admit, I could have said it a little less troll-y.
Can you deny the large number of unhappy Senn buyers posting threads?
It's not an amp problem for most of them.
