Eheh, the bad thing is I don't have the headphones yet, I'm still deciding what to buy.
If I decided to buy the Hifiman I will have less money to buy a better amp if needed, on the other side I guess they will still sound better than my current crappy headphones and this amp or the Asus Essence STX will be at least decent at driving them untill I can get a better amp.
Buying the Hifiman will leave me about 230€ / 210£ / 335$ for an amp, if get the Beyer (DT880/990) or Denons (D2000) I will have more money to spend on an amp.
Is there a good amp for the amount left by getting the Hifiman the I could get in case this Pioneer is not up to par?
I could get a E7/E9 combo with room to spare and have a semi-portable amp/DAC for my notebook and maybe get a more serious desktop amp later on.
Once I buy whichever headphone I'll end up buying I will surely post my impressions on this amp and if I get another I will try to compare them even tho I'm not an expert but it will be nice to give some info back to this forum for a change. :D
