I am extremely uninformed when it comes to headphones/amps/dacs. Let me just explain my current set-up:
1. Macbook Pro (unibody)
2. Total Bithead
3. AKG K702's
All my music is in flac format and played in VLC. The sound I get is much better than anything I have listened to; however, I get an annoying hiss from the headphones when the volume is high (way before my volume comfort level) and I keep thinking that these headphones should sound better. Now I know that the bithead is no where near decent when it comes to amp/dac combos. I recently purchased (waiting for delivery) a Headroom Desktop Amp. What I would like to know is will I be able to hear a considerable difference in audio quality? Will I be able to listen to my music at higher volumes without clipping? Is the upgrade worth the $850 I spent?
Thanks in advance!
