Really they can sound good with even a cheep portable amp like the little dot MK1+ I used the MK1 for a year and it worked great. There is no point in spending more if you do not have a good dac anyways. Think of it as an investment, this is how I did it when I started out and it worked great. I just had a sound blaster and a little dot MK1 then later I got an audio gd compass and then I got an Imod and then some IEMs. So I still use the MK1 every day. I would really recommend you just get the better headphones and get a decent portable amp as a long term investment. This way you can upgrade in the future but you still start out with a really great setup and you have starting capacity for a great portable rig too!
